Jennifer Lawrence is basically everyone’s BFF or the girl they wish was their BFF or their girlfriend or a combination of the two or BASICALLY SHE IS LOVED BY EVERYONE. Even I love her – I think she’s a great actress, she seems pretty chill and she’s not afraid to be a bit of a dork. However, I worry for her because I feel like she could fall into the ever-popular trap of being so praised for being “quirky” that she plays that characteristic up to remain loved/continue getting positive attention and reenforcement.
Take this interview with Extra, for example (start the vid at 2:30) – Jennifer has chatted about The Hunger Games, and some of her co-stars in the film have also praised her talent and how great she is, etc. Then, Extra is talking to Jeff Bridges and Jennifer freaks her beans and comes running over, gushing over him and how much she loves The Big Lebowski and all that. Jeff Bridges is a cool dude (one might say THE Dude…. yeaaaaaahhhh!) and takes it all pretty well, even though she asks him his favourite movie he’s ever been in and he starts talking about seeing someone else’s movie. Then he sorta gives her an up and down “I’d fuck you if you were into it” look as he tells her it’s good to see her and she sorta trots off with her assistant. I mean… whatever.
