Jennifer Lawrence Apologizes For "Brain Fart," Thanks David O. Russell & Harvey Weinstein In Oscar Speech Addendum

So, we picked Jennifer Lawrence as our Woman Of The Year for 2012, and....toldja. If there was any doubt last fall, the actress secured her place as America's sweetheart Sunday night by being the awkward nerd we all wanted to be at the Oscars. From falling up the stairs to get her Best Actress award, to totally freaking the fuck out when Jack Nicholson smoothly hits on her backstage and handling the idiotic questions from the press corps with aplomb, it seems there's one more way for Lawrence to endear herselves to us.

So, we picked Jennifer Lawrence as our Woman Of The Year for 2012, and....toldja. If there was any doubt last fall, the actress secured her place as America's sweetheart Sunday night by being the awkward nerd we all wanted to be at the Oscars. From falling up the stairs to get her Best Actress award, to totally freaking the fuck out when Jack Nicholson smoothly hit on her backstage and handling the idiotic questions from the press corps with aplomb, it seems there's one more way for Lawrence to endear herselves to us.

Having likely spent the last day or so reveling in her Oscar win, the actress has penned an open letter to director David O. Russell and producer Harvey Weinstein apologizing for her "brain fart" and forgetting them during her acceptance speech. It's a nice letter that's two parts sincere thanks and one part classic Lawrence, and it's just pure class all around. So read it in full below and after that is one more pic from Oscar night that fully illustrates why Lawrence basically rules. [EW]

In the whirlwind of last night, I was remiss to thank two incredibly important people to this film and in my life.

David O. Russell: Thank you for the most incredible experience of my life. Thank you for your genius, for your guidance, for teaching me things about myself and nurturing me to be a better actor. You have so much passion and such a bleeding heart, you believe not only in your films but what your films can do for people and that is the most important thing that I have learned from you.

Harvey Weinstein: You championed this movie and its story from early days. Your passion and unyielding support gave this film the opportunity to thrive and touch so many people.

Thank you to both. I will never be able to forgive myself for such a brain fart but I hope that you both can. Obviously it was not on purpose, I couldn’t remember what I had already said and my mind went completely blank–your brain does funny things during the most overwhelming moment of your life!
