Jennifer Lawrence gave Oscar to her parents

Jennifer Lawrence's Oscar has been banished to her parents' home as the golden statuette made her feel "awkward" in front of house guests.

The "Hunger Games" star landed the best actress Oscar for her role in "Silver Linings Playbook" earlier this year, but struggled to find a suitable spot for Hollywood's highest honor in her home. She eventually placed it out of sight in a hallway near her bathroom, prompting her mother, Karen, to confiscate the trophy and take it back to the family home in Kentucky.

"My parents took it back to Kentucky, 'cause I felt odd having it, like, on display in my house," Lawrence told Access Hollywood.  "If anybody's coming over to my house, I didn't want them to remember that. Just kind of puts a weird energy out. I put it in the hallway towards the bathroom, and my mom was like, 'I'm taking it. It shouldn't be here'. And now it's on a piano in Kentucky!"

I think that's sweet. Her parents can enjoy the hard work they put into making a well rounded, kind hearted, well educated, talented daughter!

Wow!!  How refreshing.  Talented, humble and sensible.  If she can manage to remain humble through her stardom, her life and career will be nothing but successful.  Apparently, she has not let fame cloud her judgment and for that she deserves a lot of credit.  Also, I believe her parents deserve a big Kudos for the, obviously, good job they did in raising her.
