Julia Roberts, who in a previous interview segment released by MTV wouldn't rubber-stamp Jennifer Lawrence's membership in the club of America's Sweethearts, also told the network that she's never read "The Hunger Games."

Speaking with Josh Horowitz about "August: Osage County," Roberts participated in a pop-culture quiz, which she kind of failed. Not only was "The Hunger Games" -- the blockbuster YA novel trilogy by Suzanne Collins that has been turned into a franchise starring Lawrence -- unfamiliar to Roberts, but so too was Miley Cyrus' latest album, "Bangerz." What Roberts did know? That Taylor Swift has a song called "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together," and that George Clooney should always be People's Sexiest Man Alive. Watch the awkward below. "August: Osage County" is out in limited release now.
