Jennifer Lawrence, queen of tripping on the red carpet and punching co-stars in inappropriate places, explained to Jimmy Fallon Monday night how she got intomajor trouble doing her first movie press conference.

At the conference, which was for 2008's "The Burning Plain" starring Charlize Theron and Kim Basinger, a-little known Lawrence found a way to ensure that all eyes were on her with an off-color joke.

"Kim Basinger wasn't there, and we were doing an international press conference," Lawrence told Fallon. "So somebody said, 'Where is Kim Basinger?' And I just leaned into the microphone and was like, 'You didn't hear? Kim died."
