Jennifer Lawrence may sometimes have a hard time interacting with fans, but that wasn't the case this weekend: The Oscar-winning actress made the bold move to commandeer a loudspeaker on a plane, in an effort to show some love to the Philadelphia Eagles.
People reports that Lawrence was on a flight from New Orleans to Los Angeles on Sunday afternoon -- just before the Eagles triumphed in Super Bowl XLII -- when she was moved to take the mic and show her devotion to Philly's NFL team. Lawrence won the Best Actress Oscar for 2012's "Silver Linings Playbook," which featured an Eagles-obsessed family led by Bradley Cooper.
In a video captured by a fellow passenger, Lawrence can be seen encouraging the rest of the flight to join her in the team's signature fight song, "Fly, Eagles, Fly."

"Everybody, this is not the pilot speaking. This is Jennifer Lawrence," the actress said over the loudspeaker. "It's February 4, Super Bowl Sunday, and we all know what that means. Can I please get a 'Fly, Eagles, fly'? Fly, Eagles, fly! Fly, Eagles, fly!"
Lawrence also made a reference to "Bridesmaids," quoting Kristen Wiig's character ("There's a colonial woman on the plane, she's wearing traditional...."), who also commandeered a loudspeaker in that flick -- and was also eventually shushed by a flight attendant.
While it doesn't appear that too many of Lawrence's fellow flyers were moved to root for Philly (maybe they were angry Patriots fans?), one passenger who spoke to People said the silly stunt was overall well-received.
"It was just like a fun, spontaneous chant by Jennifer Lawrence that we definitely appreciated," the passenger told People. "I think everyone just went along with it, since flights are so boring."
