Jennifer Lawrence could miss The Oscars as she battles pneumonia

Jennifer Lawrence could miss The Academy Awards ceremony next month, after falling ill with pneumonia.

The Hunger Games star is up for the Best Actress gong for her role in Silver Linings Playbook, but it was revealed yesterday that she could be too sick to attend the event.


Jen's friend Jackie Weaver let slip that Jen is suffering from the illness when she collected an award on her behalf in LA yesterday.

“She is very ill — she has pneumonia," she told the audience.

A guest told the Sun: “Everyone was shellshocked. With these ceremonies, when people claim to be ill sometimes there is doubt how unwell someone is. But when Jackie said Jennifer had pneumonia it sent a chilled hush around the room.”

Poor Jen. We hope she feels better soon!
