The Oscar winner and 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' superfan also interviewed Kim Kardashian West on Thursday night's (Nov. 2) show.

Now that the Reese's Cups are all gone, the cobwebs are off the bushes and in the garbage and that Donald Trump wig is back where it belongs, Thursday night (Nov. 2) was the perfect time to reveal the results of Jimmy Kimmel's annual prank, "Hey Jimmy Kimmel, I Told My Kids I Ate All Their Halloween Candy. With guest host Jennifer Lawrence doing the honors, the seventh annual video once again showed kids' reactions to being told that their parents, yes, ate all of their Halloween candy. (Or pretended to, anyway.)

"Remember how we went trick-or-treating last night? Well guess what? Last night mommy and daddy ate all of [the candy]," one parent told her kids, who then proceeded to have a major meltdown. 

When another child is told about the candy crime, she said, "Spit it out! Spit it out of your tummy!" Some kids took it a step further, throwing things, flipping off their parents, and even cursing. One kid retorted, "And that's why I don't love you."

Still other children were more understanding, with one sweetly telling their parent, "It's fine, that's ok. You can do whatever you want to."

Though Kimmel is at home with his family this week, he also joined in on the fun with his daughter in an adorable clip released Wednesday (Nov. 1) on a night when Channing Tatum did the honors.

Later in the show, Lawrence, who is a Keeping Up With the Kardashians superfan, had the opportunity to interview Kim Kardashian West, who she referred to as "my utter obsession, our lord Jesus God Kim Kardashian" in her opening monologue.

Lawrence detailed a dinner she recently had at Kardashian West's house, in which she drunkenly danced with family matriarch Kris Jenner. Kardashian West said she'd "never seen [her] mom so drunk before in [her] life." Lawrence also recalled how she got naked in Kardashian West's closet.

Lawrence came prepared with tons of questions for the reality star and mogul, including: do her and husband Kanye West fart in front of each other ("I don't fart, what are you talking about?" Kardashian West demurred); would she rather sleep with Kim Jong-un or Donald Trump (the reality star didn't choose); what is the weirdest thing Kanye does ("he falls asleep anywhere"), and more.

The Oscar winner also asked if Kardashian West, whose family has been connected to O.J. Simpson's for years (her father Robert Kardashian was a friend and attorney of Simpson's), if she's ever asked the ex-football star and one-time murder suspect if he killed his wife, Nicole Brown Simpson. "I never really go there because I have so much respect for his children," the reality star responded.

The two also discussed Kardashian West's makeup line and Lawrence gave her fan art.
