Jennifer Lawrence's father has reportedly given her a stern talking to after she made jokes about being drunk.

The 23-year-old actress recently appeared on a US talk show where she admitted having so much alcohol at Madonna's post-Oscars party this year that she threw up on the stairs. To add insult to injury Miley Cyrus witnessed the faux pas and warned the star to "get it together".

Jennifer's dad Gary apparently didn't see the funny side of the anecdote.

"Gary was horrified when even Miley Cyrus was telling Jen to pull herself together. He's incredibly proud of his daughter, but he does worry about the influence of Hollywood and the fame on her life," an insider told British magazine Heat.

"She's the apple of his eye and he hates hearing stories like this. He told her it wouldn't be the first time a talented actress went off the rails, reminding her of Lindsay Lohan."

Gary apparently had a proper discussion with Jennifer about the incident and reminded her she needs to take her career seriously.

It seems this was just a slight miss-step by the star, who recently admitted she worries about the public perception of her. She famously fell while receiving the best actress Oscar for Silver Linings Playbook last year and stumbled again at this year's ceremony, something she was mortified about.

"Nobody can stay beloved forever. I never believed it, the whole time. I was like, just wait: people are going to get sick of me. My picture is everywhere, my interviews are everywhere. I'm way too annoying because I get on red carpets and I'm really hyper, most likely because I've been pranking, and I can't not photo-bomb somebody if it's a good opportunity.

But it's something I always tell myself: 'You need to calm the f**k down. You don't want to constantly be a GIF,'" she explained to Marie Claire magazine.

"Trust me, if I was going to plan [this year's fall], I would have done it at the Golden Globes or the SAGS. I would have never done it at two Oscars in a row. I watch Homeland – I'm craftier than that."
