Bill Engvall on Jennifer

Engvall still follows Lawrence’s career — with pride.“Little Jennifer Lawrence, bless her heart! I love her to death,” he said.

“My wife and I couldn’t have been more proud of her if she were our own daughter. In every interview she did, she’d give me credit. I love her for that.

“Of my favorite scenes that I did on that show, one of them was with Jennifer. I go back and watch it every once in a while. We had a scene where she was mad at me and I had to go in and apologize to her. We had that nice dad-daughter moment. I remember (thinking), ‘This girl’s good.’ She’s got it; she’s got what it takes. I think she’ll be holding that statuette before she’s done.”
