- Late Night Antics May 16
On Thursday night's Tonight Show, Jennifer Lawrence and Jimmy Fallon played a game called Box of Lies, in which each player opens a box and either tells the other player what's really inside it or makes something up. Unlike most of Fallon's celebrity square-offs, which primarily involve tabletop ball games, Box of Lies tests acting ability — of a sort. Fallon had the benefit of having played before — "If that's not the truth, you're a sociopath," Lawrence told him during his turn — but Lawrence is, after all, a professional actor. Advantage? --Peter Weber
