Jeffrey Wright - Jeffrey Wright Gifted Jennifer Lawrence With Box Of Crickets

Prankster Jeffrey Wright gave his The Hunger Games: Catching Fire co-star Jennifer Lawrence a Tiffany box full of live crickets when she returned to the set of the movie after winning an Oscar in March (13).

The actor admits he wanted to bring the actress back down to earth after her incredible night at the Academy Awards.

Wright explains, "There were as many crickets as I could cram into the box... What do you give the girl who has everything... I went to the pet store and they have these old big tubs of crickets for amphibians and reptiles... I thought she would get a kick out of it."

Wright also placed a charm in the box, but even he was surprised by what the crickets left as they hopped away from the open box: "There was tissue in with it, but the crickets eat tissue, so it was cricket and cricket faeces as well."
