This Is A Joke, Right? Jennifer Lawrence Blue And Practically Naked For X-Men

Jennifer Lawrence calls herself “fat” for Hollywood, but is proud of her body (as she should be!) Here’s something to refresh your memory, in case you don’t remember this comment of hers. From EW.com:

In Hollywood, I’m obese. I’m considered a fat actress. I’m Val Kilmer in that one picture on the beach.

Oh, girl, that’s mean. But she may not be saying about this about herself if not for idiots like Manohla Dargis of The New York Times who said,

A few years ago Ms. Lawrence might have looked hungry enough to play Katniss, but now, at 21, her seductive, womanly figure makes a bad fit for a dystopian fantasy about a people starved into submission.

Really sorry she didn’t Christian Bale it for you (talkin’ bout The Machinist). Also in the books Katniss was described as strong despite the lack of food because she would illegally hunt everyday for more food and –oh my God, listen to me, I’m gonna stop right here, I am NOT going to be the person who gets really into defending The Hunger Games.

The super cool Jeffrey Wells of Hollwood Elsewhere said she was “too big” for her male costar, adding,

She’s a fairly tall, big-boned lady (I’ve been in a hotel room with her) [...]

Cool, now let’s ask Jennifer Lawrence what she thought of you in that hotel room.

Then we have the awesome Justin Chang of Variety who said,

Hunger, the one constant in Katniss’ hard-scrabble life, barely even seems to register.

This is a snarky way of saying, “Fatass.” And it’s all so ridiculous because she used to model for Abercrombie & Fitch so how fat could she really be, considering we know how they feel about fat people?

What’s my damn point in sharing all of this? Because the lovely Lawrence clearly listened to this bullshit and lost all of her GROSS DISGUSTING FAT to slim down to play Mystique for the new X-Men movie.

If anything her former Hunger Games physique is perfect for Mystique, as the character is a mighty SUPER HERO. Then again, I get why Ms. Lawrence would feel pressure to slim down as her goddamn costume is PRACTICALLY NOTHING.

Look, I get it: this is how the Mystique character looks. Mystique is blue. But this is f-cking bullshit. In the comic book, Mystique actually wear clothes, and Hollywood can make the decision to say, hey, this is a reboot, let’s try something different, let’s not have our lead actress be practically naked in this one (Rebecca Romijn being the first naked Mystique). You never see male stars in ANYTHING like this. Like why don’t we see Spider-Man rocking a bulge in his skintight outfit but we practically see Jennifer Lawrence’s vagina?

You’re all going to argue with me and tell me I’m wrong anyway, so go for it.

Fun tidbit: January Jones was not invited back to reprise her character of Emma Frost for this film, and rumor is it’s because she had an affair with the director, Bryan Singer. Oh, and look, they managed to figure out a way to get her in sexy underwear for her role:

I’m sure it was crucial for the story.

I’ll get this started for you: “You’re taking this way too seriously” “You’re oversensitive” “It’s just a movie” “You’re probably ugly and/or jealous” “Ugh, why does everyone have to make everything a big deal” “I come here for celebrity gossip not for stuff like this I’m leaving” etc etc.

  • The reason her costume is like this is because she didn’t say “no, i’m not going to be naked on film”. The reason january jones wore lingere is because she didn’t say “no, i’m not wearing my sex clothes on film”. For every woman who thinks “wow…so that is totally unnecessary to advance the plot”, there’s a woman who says “man, I would love to show off my T & A for millions of strangers”. Shrug.

  • I’m sorry to hear you’re expecting those types of comments. I’ll offer one in support, since it sounds like you may need it! I love your posts, and every person should be a feminist all of the time! It’s the only way to change the world- a thought planted here and there.

  • What’s his name was that naked blue guy in the… Oh crap, I can’t think of the name of the movie! Ah, yes, there it is – Billy Crudup in Watchmen. But that’s about all I can think of, mostly because anything with dong is pretty much a porno.
    And hey, if Hollywood can make Tom “Lifts” Cruise looks tall, Jennifer can be “too big” for her costar. And, to that end, why is it the gorgeous and amazing female Oscar winner the one who is too big?! Maybe her male costar is too small?? Josh is just tiny – the double-standard is so sickening!

  • she looks hot with whatever i want to see her as naked as posible all the time sorry cant help you there.
    also did you even watch the movie ? it was a big deal for her to actually accept how she looked because she used to hide in her human form, so at the end she decides shes beautifull and should not hide her true form and thats why shes naked.

    i will agree with the comment about how men dont ever have to do something like this, but do you really want to see that? movie execs know what sells aand believe me that is not it

  • Chris Hemsworth’s shirtless scene in Thor was soooo crucial for the story as was Ryan Gosling’s scene in crazy stupid love. Did any woman complain about them? No, because hurray for double standards.
    Men don’t ever have to do something like that? Sure, keep telling yourself that.
    Sex sells and the use of eyecandy is normal in movies, so who cares.
    As for Emma Frost: Just do a picture search for her and you’ll see a) why this scene is in the movie and b) that January Jones is wearing pretty much clothes for her role.

    • Wow, you did more research for this article than our dear author. Probably the worst part about comic book characters ending up in movies is enduring ridiculous comments from people who don’t know the first thing about them.

  • Well, the usually sexistic depiction of female characters in comics isn’t really helpful here and I am aware of that, but that is another topic.

  • January Jones didn’t have na affair with Bryan Singer because he is openly gay. :F

    Openly gay enough to host gay post-pride parties (tou can check the pics on the web)
