Our Jennifer mentioned her first gig during her acceptance speech after winning the outstanding actress award for her work in Silver Linings Playbook. The refreshingly unfiltered actress began her turn at the podium by thanking MTV. Have you not seen her acceptance speech? Watch the following video.
?I did an MTV promo for My Super Sweet 16,” she said. “I remember getting [the card] in the mail and it being the best day of my entire life because it officially made me a professional actor — which put me in a category with all of you. And now I have this naked statue that means that some of you even voted for me.?
She also thanked David O. Russell, Bradley Cooper, and obviously her family. She’s such a sweetheart! :’)
