Poor Jennifer Lawrence. She wins a Golden Globe for her performance in “Silver Linings Playbook” and yet all anyone can talk about is how she “dissed” Meryl Streep in her acceptance speech. When Lawrence popped on stage to receive her reward, the first thing she said was, “It says I beat Meryl!” leading Lindsay Lohan — yes, that Lindsay Lohan — to tweet “no1 should ever mess with a legend, such as Meryl Streep.” The thing is, Lindz and everyone else who thought Jennifer was being a snot, “It says I beat Meryl” is a famous line from the hilaaaaaaarious movie “The First Wives Club.” Watch as Jennifer explains herself on last night’s “Late Show with David Letterman,” and then check out the original after the jump… Keep reading »
It’s awards season, errbody (said in J-Kwon voice), and we’re stoked to see the biggest names in the business all decked out for the Golden Globes. The third most-watched awards show brings out some of our favorite actresses, like Jessica Chastain, Anne Hathaway, and Claire Danes (all shown at last year’s awards), and we can’t wait to see what they’re wearing. So much so, in fact, that we decided to go ahead and place some bets on who we think will be wearing who on tonight’s red carpet…
The Oscar noms are in, and now we’re left to twiddle our thumbs and wait to find out who won all the awards. In the meantime, we figured we could at least take a look at how the lady nominees stack up in the style department.
Feel free to take guesses on what they’ll be wearing, and who’ll come out on top, in the comments!
“I don’t like going out that much. I’m kind of an old lady. After it’s 11, I’m like, ‘Don’t these kids ever get tired?’ When I’m out, I think about my couch. Like, ‘It would be awesome to be on it right now. I bet there’s an episode of Dance Moms on. Am I missing a new episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians?’ I like people to come over to my place. It’s like a reality TV show cave.”
— Twinsies! Jennifer Lawrence and I are on the very same page regarding nights out. I always worry that I am maybe the lamest person on earth, so it’s really reassuring to know that not only are there other people like me out there, but that Jen is one of them. We should hang out, right? We could totally watch “Real Housewives” together all day. I would even let her pick which series! Come on, Jen. Best friends. Let’s do this. [Us Weekly]
There’s something exciting about discovering that a famous celeb has been hiding a hot, not-famous sibling. What?! So-and-so has a brother and he’s sexxxxxxy?! I find myself thinking, as if it’s impossible that the famous celeb’s parents could have made something so good-looking twice. Anyway, the latest example of this is Jennifer Lawrence’s brother Blaine, with whom she was photographed strolling the beaches of Hawaii. Hello, Blaine. You’re setting this girl on fire. I hunger for you. Hmm, can’t think of a sexual twist on “Mockingjay,” but you get the picture. Click through to see more…
“The whole time we were like orgy, orgy, who’s going to see the orgy, what are we going to do in the event of an orgy, we need to break up so we can be assured that one of us gets to see the orgy.”
– The amazing Jennifer Lawrence, on seeing the interactive Macbeth-ish play, Sleep No More. I guess it supposedly has an orgy in it. Jennifer also said that the highlight of getting nominated for an Oscar — for her work in ”Winter’s Bone” — was being gifted with M&Ms with her face on them. “That literally was probably the coolest thing that I saw,” she said. “I was like: ‘You know what? It’s all worth it’ after I saw those M&M’s.” [NY Times]
“In Hollywood, I’m obese. I’m considered a fat actress. I’m Val Kilmer in that one picture on the beach. … I’m never going to starve myself for a part. I keep waiting for that one role to come along that scares me enough into dieting, and it just can’t happen. I’m invincible. … I don’t want little girls to be like, ‘Oh, I want to look like Katniss, so I’m going to skip dinner.’ That’s something that I was really conscious of during training, when you’re trying to get your body to look exactly right. I was trying to get my body to look fit and strong, not thin and underfed.”
— Puh-lease, Jennifer Lawrence, you are one of the babeliest babes around. But I do get what she’s saying about being considered a “fat actress” — just as Romola Garai so eloquently noted, acting professions have become so intertwined with the fashion industry that actresses who don’t fit into the ever-dwindling sample size are an anomaly. And even more refreshingly, Jennifer doesn’t take the Kim Kardashian cop-out stance of, “I love my body and want to inspire other girls to love theirs, but also I’m working out three hours a day and trying really hard to lose weight.” I just get the feeling that she’s totally cool with herself the way she is. Love her! [Crushable]
I unabashedly love Jennifer Lawrence and think she can pretty much do no wrong, and she is pretty much the only reason (sorry!) I saw “The Hunger Games.” But what in holy hell is going on with this Elle magazine cover? Jennifer looks like she’s ready to kill somebody. Also? Those bangs. So is she thinking:
- “I suffered through “The Hunger Games” for this?”
- “Where is Tawny Kitaen?”
- “Serving ’80s rock video realness.”
- “How much longer before I can put my sweatpants back on?”
- “Who frosted my tips?”
What’s your guess? [Elle]
Jennifer Lawrence: I love her in that “I want to be BFFs with you” kind of way. Here she is all dolled up for the latest Miss Dior ads.
