Jennifer Lawrence has revealed that Jack Nicholson sent her champagne after gatecrashing one of her interviews at the Oscars.

The Hunger Games star was being interviewed on camera backstage at the Academy Awards, after being named Best Actress for Silver Linings Playbook, when Jack suddenly appeared and told her how much he loved her performance and that she looked "like an old girlfriend of mine", joking that he would "be waiting".

Jen, 23, has now told ABC News that the 76-year-old Hollywood heavyweight followed up his words with a note and presents.

"He's sent me flowers and a bottle of Cristal and a note that said 'missing you already'. Not to brag," she said.

The actress joked: "I should've probably kept that a secret so it could just be between me and Jack."

Footage of the interview from the 2012 Oscars shows Jennifer looking stunned when Jack walks up to congratulate her during her chat with Good Morning America.

"You did such a beautiful job. I didn't mean to cross into your interview but I had to congratulate you," said the actor, an Academy Award winner himself.

After he walks away the actress said "Oh my God. Is he still there?" before Jack pops back up and teases: "I'll be waiting."
