“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.
Noooooo. Birds, especially large human-sized birds are my biggest fear. I’m suddenly very, very scared of Jennifer Lawrence. WTF, W magazine?!
Last week, we took a look at 15 celebs beating the heat in itty-bitty cutoff shorts. This week let’s check out the opposite end of the summer style spectrum: long, flowy maxi skirts. This super comfortable garment has become a warm weather staple, and everyone from Ashley Olsen to Beyonce is getting in on the action. Click on the gallery above to check out how 11 stars styled their maxi skirts!
If you haven’t already read the 2005 memoir The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls, pick it up or download it ASAP. It is seriously one of the most riveting books I’ve read. In case you don’t trust my taste, it spent over 250 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list, so there’s that. But great books don’t always transition seamlessly into great films. Does anyone remember the film version of “Running With Scissors”? No, because it was awful. Which is weird because the book was really compelling. Hearing that Jennifer Lawrence is in talks to star in the film version of “The Glass Castle” gives us hope for its greatness. Um, yes, please. She would be perfect to play Jeannette Walls. We’ll be staying tuned for casting announcements. [Just Jared]
