Jennifer Lawrence has revealed that her maid found a massive stash of sex toys and butt plugs hidden under her bed. The definition of mortifying? We think so.

J-Law was presented with the toys while promoting American Hustle, but her maid just couldn't resist giving them pride of place on her bedside table.

Could you take this kind of humiliation on the chin like Jennifer? Take a look at our top tips for mortifying situations below...

How to recover after embarrassing yourself


1. Don't show you're bothered: After she'd tripped up the stairs at The Oscars, J-Law instantly made a joke and carried on with her acceptance speech. If you show people just how embarrassed you're you're likely to make the situation worse and escalate the incident into a major catastrophe.

2. Don't tell yourself off: Embarrassment is like the naughty cousin of perfectionism - you feel like you don't live up to your own standards and feel bad about it. Remember, everyone's done something embarrassing at some point in their life. At least you'll have an amusing anecdote to tell at dinner parties.

3. Don't talk about it endlessly: It's human nature to need validation after a slip-up, but constantly asking your friends if it's a 'big deal' or 'do you think anyone noticed' is only going to perpetuate the embarrassment.

4. Laugh about it: Even if you feel like your face is burning and you're going to be sick it's crucial to acknowledge the embarrassment and show you're a confident enough person to deal with it.

5. Accept the inevitable teasing: Let's face it, falling off a chair, falling up the stairs, making a strange comments, farting in public, they're all going to result in a level of merciless teasing from your mates. Yes, you will want to kill them but it's all a part of real friendships - no one would laugh at a mere acquaintance for fear of being rude.
