Jennifer Lawrence is worried she may be ''kicked out'' of the Academy of Motion Pictures, Arts and Sciences because of her mother.

The 'Silver Linings Playbook' actress is concerned she will be removed from the group who decides the Oscar winners every year after her mum Karen stole her ballot as a joke while she was in the UK, and she is now worried she will not be allowed to vote again.

She said: ''I get a call from my mother while I was in England and she goes, 'I did something hilarious'. And I'm thinking, 'What?'

''And she's like, 'I voted'. And I was like, 'You voted for what?' 'The Oscars.' And I was like, 'You voted for the Oscars, what do you mean?' And she goes, 'The ballot came here and I voted!' Because she thought I'd be, like, 'That's hilarious.' Fortunately, she did it wrong and mailed it back to herself, so I got to do it again.

''I'm going to get kicked out of the Academy!''

Jennifer admits her mother is a fun-loving person and is always finding ways of having a good time.

During an appearance on the 'The Ellen Degeneres Show', she said: ''Oh she's very happy. She has more fun than I do.''
