Jennifer Lawrence's foul mouth raises cash for charity

Jennifer Lawrence turned the air blue on TV on Thursday (09Jul15) for a good cause when she reeled off her favourite swear words for charity.

Confessing to a "potty mouth" during an appearance on talk show Conan while at the Comic-Con convention in California, she accepted host Conan O'Brien's challenge to test censors with a stream of expletives in 30 seconds.

She then yelled out one nasty word after another while the TV personality tossed money into a jar, and the stunt raised $10,000 for her favourite charity.

Earlier in the day, Lawrence and her The Hunger Games co-stars Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth hosted a panel discussion, moderated by O'Brien at Comic-Con, and the issue of her foul mouth came to the fore thanks to a sign near the stage that urged audience members to watch their language as children were among them.

Lawrence said, "Josh actually decided that they did write that just for me."
