Jennifer Lawrence Hijacks Plane Speaker to Lead Passengers in Eagle Chant on Super Bowl Day

The 'X-Men: Dark Phoenix' actress says over the loudspeaker, 'Can i please get a 'fly eagles fly'? Fly, eagles fly! Fly eagles fly!' before a flight attendant stops her.

AceShowbiz - %cJennifer Lawrence% spread some Super Bowl spirit on a plane ahead of the big game. The Oscar-winning actress picked up the loudspeaker and led the passengers in a chant in honor of the Philadelphia Eagles when she was on Delta flight 1975 from New Orleans to Los Angeles on Sunday, February 4.

"Everybody, this is not the pilot speaking. This is Jennifer Lawrence," the 27-year-old actress said over the loudspeaker as seen in a video that has gone viral. "It's February 4th, Super Bowl Sunday, and we all know what that means. Can i please get a 'fly eagles fly'? Fly, eagles fly! Fly eagles fly!"

After her proud chant, Lawrence started to quote 2011's comedy film "Bridesmaids", "There's a colonial woman on the plane, she's wearing traditional….," before a flight attendant appeared from a door behind her and attempted to quiet her.

While not everybody participated in the chant, a fellow passenger told PEOPLE that "there were a few cheers." The flyer said after the flight attendant interrupted Lawrence, "she went back to her seat and that was it. Everyone seemed fine as it was like, pretty quick."

"They certainly didn't apologize, so I think they were fine with it," the passenger continued. "It was just like a fun, spontaneous chant by Jennifer Lawrence that we definitely appreciated. I think everyone just went along with it, since flights are so boring."

Lawrence also took a picture with a young Eagles fan on the plane. "Someone had an Eagles jersey on, and she took a selfie with them after," said the passenger. "They asked her and she very happily said yes."

Lawrence was not the only who showed her support to the Philadelphia Eagles, who were taking on the New England Patriots in the big game, on a plane. %cPink%, who sang the National Anthem at the game, shared a video of her brother leading a similar chant on his flight to the big game.

"Yep. That's my brother," Pink wrote alongside the video. "Singing the Eagles fight song on his flight to Super Bowl. He's not messing around people."

The Eagles ended up winning their first Super Bowl, defeating the Patriots on the Sunday game.
