Elizabeth Banks has revealed she likes to tease Jennifer Lawrence about her Oscar nomination.

Jennifer - who is currently filming the new Hunger Games instalment Mockingjay - Part 1 with Elizabeth - has been nominated for the best supporting actress Oscar for her performance in American Hustle. Last year when she won best actress at the Academy Awards for Silver Linings Playbook she fell over as she climbed onto the stage.

Elizabeth told E! News: "I was on set the day she was nominated. We all kid with her more than anything... A lot of poking fun at her. She can handle it, which is a lovely quality of hers."

The 30 Rock star said Jennifer was "pretty cool" and revealed they mess around a lot on set.

But she added: "I could never repeat the craziest thing she's done. She'd get in a lot of trouble."

"We don't give away all of our set secrets. She is exactly what people hope that she is, which is a really fun, easy-going gal you'd want to hang out with. You definitely want to have a beer with her."
