When I saw Jennifer Lawrence at the London Sparrow premiere on Tuesday I instantly thought about how amazing she looked in that fantastic dress and how schlubby her male co stars looked. I didn’t care either way, but that’s what I thought.
Apparently I missed a huge conspiracy to give Jennifer the flu or some shit because next thing you know the internet was freaking out about how this was some chauvinistic Hollywood inequity where Jen must exude sex appeal at all times. And I thought it was so presumptuous of all these people to use her as a tool to freak out at what was likely her decision.
Well for once I was right and Jennifer has issued a statement via her Facebook page stating everyone needs to chill the fuck out.
“Wow. I don’t really know where to get started on this “Jennifer Lawrence wearing a revealing dress in the cold” controversy. This is not only utterly ridiculous, I am extremely offended. That Versace dress was fabulous, you think I’m going to cover that gorgeous dress up with a coat and a scarf? I was outside for 5 minutes. I would have stood in the snow for that dress because I love fashion and that was my choice.
This is sexist, this is ridiculous, this is not feminism. Over- reacting about everything someone says or does, creating controversy over silly innocuous things such as what I choose to wear or not wear, is not moving us forward. It’s creating silly distractions from real issues. Get a grip people. Everything you see me wear is my choice. And if I want to be cold THATS MY CHOICE TOO!”
