Jennifer Lawrence has admitted that she was not expecting to win the BAFTA for Best Supporting Actress and she was completely shocked when she heard the news.

The star won the accolade for her role in American Hustle and while she was not in attendance at the ceremony, the film's director David O. Russell accepted the award on her behalf.

When asked by Deadline if she expected to win the award Lawrence replied, "Oh, it was a big surprise. I didn't remember that the BAFTAs were happening that day. I certainly did not think I was going to win one so I put it out of my mind.

"So there I was, in the middle of being painted blue, and someone said, 'You just won the BAFTA!' And I said, 'Oh, go f*** yourself!' And then it turned out they were serious."
