Jennifer Lawrence: Dad encouraged sense of humor

Jun 14 2013, 9:36am CDT | by

Jennifer Lawrence has credited her father for her sense of humor.

The 'Silver Linings Playbook' actress is known for her quick-witted quips - such as joking that her dress meant to fall down when she suffered an embarrassing wardrobe malfunction at the Screen Actors Guild Awards in January - and she says her dad always encouraged her to be funny.

She told US magazine Popular Mechanics: "My dad always told me, 'If it ain't broke, don't fix it.' And have a good sense of humor."

While the 22-year-old beauty's father gave her life advice, 'World War Z' star Brad Pitt says his dad instilled a more practical skill in him - the art of fishing.

In a feature celebrating Father's Day - which takes place on Sunday (16.06.13) - he said: "My dad took my brother and me fishing all the time--seemed like we'd go every weekend. Dad taught me how to cast the rod."

Now a dad himself, the 49-year-old hunk will be looking forward to celebrating the special occasion with his six children - Maddox, 11, Pax, nine, Zahara, eight, Shiloh, six, and four-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne - with fiancée Angelina Jolie.

The actor recently revealed he signed on to star in his upcoming zombie thriller 'World War Z' so he could share the movie with his sons Maddox, Pax and Knox.

He said: ''This whole thing started because I just wanted to do a film that my boys could see before they turned 18 - one that they would like, anyways. And they love a zombie. So we settled on this book, Max Brooks' book, called 'World War Z'.''
