“I was young. It was just the kind of shit that actresses have to go through. Somebody told me I was fat, that I was going to get fired if I didn’t lose a certain amount of weight. They brought in pictures of me where I was basically naked, and told me to use them as motivation for my diet.
[Someone brought it up recently.] They thought that because of the way my career had gone, it wouldn’t still hurt me. That somehow, after I won an Oscar, I’m above it all. ‘You really still care about that?’ Yeah. I was a little girl. I was hurt. It doesn’t matter what accolades you get. I know it’ll never happen to me again. If anybody even tries to whisper the word ‘diet’, I’m like, ‘You can go fuck yourself.’”
Jennifer Lawrence may be an Oscar-winning actress (for 2012′s “Silver Linings Playbook”), but she’s not immune to the pressures placed on actresses of all ages to conform to narrow body and beauty standards. I love how upfront she is (in an interview for the November issue of Harper’s Bazaar UK) about how much the comments about her weight as a child hurt and stayed with her, and I admire her for refusing to allow that kind of talk in her life again.

“I wake up earlier in the morning when I have new sponges. That counter doesn’t even see it coming … [Nicholas] would never wring them out. We were in the kitchen once, and I picked up the sponge, and it was soapy and wet, and I was like, ‘See?’ These are the kinds of things that make me think we are never going to work.”
– Jennifer Lawrence goes off on her sponge obsession in Vogue and inadvertently gives clues about the (brief?) demise of her relationship with Nicholas Hoult. (They’re maybe back together.) Well, kind of. God, she’s quirky, but I love it. In addition to her “faith in sponges” she revealed that she has “nightmares about 13-year-olds” because they terrify her and that she was a big, anxious “weirdo” with a fear of field trips and recess when she was a kid. She admits to announcing to her entire class that she wet the bed or gotten a bad haircut while on a cruise, just to see how they’d react. Weird anxieties aside, she has a point though. It’s rough when you and your partner have different ideas about how to use a sponge. [Vogue]

Jennifer Lawrence, the face of Dior, is currently sitting front row at the designer’s Paris couture show, and these are the pants she is wearing. Palazzo on the right! Tapered and printed on the left! I don’t get them. These pants think they’re smarter than me and I don’t like it. [Photos: Bauer-Griffin]
Jennifer Lawrence is one of the busiest working actresses in Hollywood today, and that doesn’t look like it will change anytime soon. After headlining one major franchise, starring in another, and winning an Oscar at the age of 22, Lawrence is set to produce her first movie.
When Lawrence has previously expressed an interest in producing films, she has always explained that she wanted to wait until she found the right project. And it certainly looks like she has.
Lawrence will be re-teaming with her ‘Serena’ director Susanne Bier for “The Rules of Inheritance,” which is based on Claire Bidwell Smith’s acclaimed memoir of the same name. The book is seen as a coming-of-age story where the main character’s parents are both diagnosed with cancer while she’s still young. The story focuses on Smith’s transition into adulthood while facing the “impending loss of her family.” Read more on Celeb Dirty Laundry…
Jennifer Lawrence: is there anything she can’t do? She’s universally beloved for tripping and falling during the Oscars, she gets away with smoking pot, she admits being star-struck by Honey Boo Boo, she jokes about her butt, and she just so happens to be one of the most gorgeous and intriguing actresses in Hollywood. Also, according to a recently released X-Men image, she looks stupendously hot as a naked blue mutant.
Yesterday, ”X-Men: Days of Future Past” director Bryan Singer tweeted a photo of Lawrence in her role as Mystique, and she looks predictably fantastic. What’s really interesting about the photo, however, is the fact that Lawrence is wearing a completely different Mystique costume this time around — and even with the fairly detailed picture Singer shared, you can’t tell what’s fabric and what’s flesh.

Jennifer Lawrence is at the Cannes film festival to promote the latest “Hunger Games” movie, “The Hunger Games: Murder Party, USA.” Actually it’s called “Catching Fire,” which is an equally obtuse name, but whatever. Here are three outfits JLaw’s worn thus far on her current trip to Cannes. She — or her stylist, whichever — seems to be favoring black and white (again) and pointy pumps. I like all three outfits, for different reasons — the white gown has a surprise pop of color on the bow; the black and white gown is classy and grown up; and I really love the flirtiness of the black bodice top (though those pants, gross).
But what do you think?
What a lovely way to wake up to a Tuesday morning. Mystique is finally back with Beast. Or, to all you non-”X-Men” freaks out there, Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult have rekindled their adorable romance. THANK GOD! I’ve been waiting long enough for this. It was whispered that Harvey Weinstein made Jennifer give him up during awards season last year so she’d have a better shot at the oscar. I’m pretty sure Harvey was behind all the are they or aren’t they rumors regarding Jennifer and Bradley Cooper too. Well, his Machiavellian tactics worked, and now Jennifer is free to go back to living her life, which means being generally awesome, smoking weed on balconies and getting back with Marcus from “About a Boy.” Heaven.
