At the GLAAD Media Awards on Saturday, Robert DiNiro told Jennifer Lawrence "If I were a lesbian, I'd be all over you." The GLAAD Media Awards recognize and honor media for fair, accurate, and inclusive representations of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community and the issues that affect their lives. Lawrence presented DiNiro with the Excellence in Media Award for his HBO documentary Remembering the Artist: Robert De Niro Sr. The documentary focused on De Niro Sr.’s struggle to hide his sexuality before coming out later in life.
He made the remark after Lawrence opened her speech by busting Di Niro's balls:
Robert De Niro is not gay, so I don’t know why we’re here. That aside, Bob has asked me to present him with GLAAD’s Excellence in Media Award because, in his words, I am like a daughter to him. And that transpires to our once-a-week drinks at the Greenwich Hotel, where I ask him advice on absolutely everything.
Us Weekly reports that Lawrence's jokes killed, and everyone loved seeing the two having fun on stage together.
