Jennifer Lawrence calls gluten-free diets ‘the cool new eating disorder’

jennifer lawrence

I personally choose not to eat carbs when I’m being mindful/healthy just because that suits me better, but I do love me some bread and I don’t have any official allergies to gluten/wheat/etc. Plenty of people are eating fancy schmancy gluten-free diets, though, because of some self-proclaimed intolerance to gluten and because it seems to be hip. That, of course, doesn’t include those with Celiac disease or any actual gluten intolerance or allergy, but refers mostly to those who think it’s trendy to say they eat gluten-free. Why that’s a thing, I don’t know, but it is – and Jennifer Lawrence hasn’t got time for it (via Yahoo Style).

In a new interview with Vanity Fair, “The Hunger Games” actress Jennifer Lawrence puts herself firmly in the bread-and-pasta crowd, telling writer Sam Kashner she ate spaghetti and meatballs for breakfast the day of their interview. She goes on to describe gluten-free as “the new cool eating disorder, the ‘basically I just don’t eat carbs.’”

Her stance could be seen as throwing shade at Gwyneth Paltrow, the ex-wife of Lawrence’s rumored boyfriend, Chris Martin. Paltrow is almost as famous for her healthy eating as she is for her acting and recently published a cookbook of her favorite gluten-free recipes, It’s All Good. “Everyone in my family is intolerant to gluten and cow dairy,” Paltrow told integrative physician Dr. Frank Lipman of Eleven Eleven Wellness Center in New York when the book was released. “We had the food sensitivities test and the doctor told us to avoid these foods and sugar as much as possible.”

I suppose it can be considered disordered eating to cut out any single group of food when there’s no real need to, but I dunno, that seems a bit much. Spaghetti is delicious, as is toast, as is cake, etc. However, who cares if someone chooses not to eat it? I don’t care if someone is vegetarian, vegan, yada yada. As long as they aren’t preachy, do your thing. I suppose the problem is that people ARE preachy about things like that, so maybe that’s what JLaw is referring to.

LOL at the Goop shade, though. Don’t forget that Chris Martin went back to eating meat after separating from her!

Nicholas Hoult speaks out on Jennifer Lawrence nude photo leak

jennifer lawrence nicholas hoult

It’s pretty obvious that the nude photos hacked from Jennifer Lawrence‘s phone were originally sent to ex-boyfriend Nicholas Hoult. They were together, in a long-distance relationship, for about four years, which is what Jennifer alluded to in her recent interview with Vanity Fair. So what does he think of the whole thing?

Here’s what he said on Good Day New York:

Hoult, who appeared on Good Day New York on Oct. 9 alongside movie director Jake Paltrow, was asked if he would weigh in on the scandal.

While he didn’t confirm nor deny he was the recipient of the photos, Hoult did have something to say.

“It’s shocking that things like that happen in the world. It’s a shame,” said Hoult.

Yes, it is “a shame”. Frankly, he doesn’t seem that bothered – but then, it is his ex-girlfriend, so I don’t think there’s any love lost there (or so one would assume).

Jennifer Lawrence speaks out on nude photo leak

jennifer lawrence VF

It has seemed as though Jennifer Lawrence has been incredibly quiet since her phone was hacked and tons of nude photos of her leaked online last month, and for good reason – she was biding her time and thinking about how she would handle it. She finally has spoken out about the crime in a new interview with Vanity Fair:

“Just because I’m a public figure, just because I’m an actress, does not mean that I asked for this,” she says. “It does not mean that it comes with the territory. It’s my body, and it should be my choice, and the fact that it is not my choice is absolutely disgusting. I can’t believe that we even live in that kind of world. ”

She had been tempted to write a statement when news of the privacy violation broke, she says, but “every single thing that I tried to write made me cry or get angry. I started to write an apology, but I don’t have anything to say I’m sorry for. I was in a loving, healthy, great relationship for four years. It was long distance, and either your boyfriend is going to look at porn or he’s going to look at you.”

Lawrence also addresses the legal ramifications of the hack. “It is not a scandal. It is a sex crime,” she tells Kashner. “It is a sexual violation. It’s disgusting. The law needs to be changed, and we need to change. That’s why these Web sites are responsible. Just the fact that somebody can be sexually exploited and violated, and the first thought that crosses somebody’s mind is to make a profit from it. It’s so beyond me. I just can’t imagine being that detached from humanity. I can’t imagine being that thoughtless and careless and so empty inside.”

“Anybody who looked at those pictures, you’re perpetuating a sexual offense. You should cower with shame. Even people who I know and love say, ‘Oh, yeah, I looked at the pictures.’ I don’t want to get mad, but at the same time I’m thinking, I didn’t tell you that you could look at my naked body.”

Lawrence also shares a message for the tabloid community: “You have a choice. You don’t have to be a person who spreads negativity and lies for a living. You can do something good. You can be good. Let’s just make that choice and—it feels better.”

Aw, I love her. I’m really glad she DIDN’T apologize for even having those photos. While I do think you have to be extra careful when you’re a celebrity and that unfortunately such violations of privacy are sort of part of the celebrity world no matter what, I also think she’s 100% right – why shouldn’t she take PRIVATE pictures that were meant only for the person she was dating at the time? Plus, these were from years ago. Her fame was nowhere near its current level and she probably didn’t even think such a thing like being hacked and having those photos leaked to the world was a remote possibility. It is a shame, but unfortunately, it’s the price you pay being in the public eye. That doesn’t make it right – it’s far from it – it’s just the sad reality of the situation.

It’s good to hear that she’s come to terms with it though and seems much stronger for it.

Jennifer Lawrence unveils new Dior campaign

jennifer lawrence diorIf you don’t mind, it’s time to be done with ogling those naked pics of Jennifer Lawrence for a while and move on to her clothed adventures. For example, the new Dior campaign that debuted this week. Doesn’t she look so mature and chic? Almost a little TOO mature and chic, really, but she’s still rocking it. I hate both of those bags, but the suit is okay.

In a video released with the campaign, Jennifer opened up about her personal style and what she thinks a strong woman is:

I’ve always really liked Jennifer Lawrence, and this is such a goofy side to see of her because… well, because it’s so different to the ACTUAL goofy side we’re constantly seeing in interviews and TV appearances. She can be sophisticated and chic and carry that off, just like she can be rough and tumble and do all her stunts for The Hunger Games. Team Jennifer Lawrence… or something!

Is Jennifer Lawrence two-timing Chris Martin with John Mayer?

jennifer lawrence chris martin john mayer

Uh oh, there might be trouble in paradise already! Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Martin only very recently began dating, but already it seems like another man is trying to get up in there: John Mayer. Chris and Jennifer took their relationship public for the first time last week when they attended a friend’s birthday dinner at the Chateau Marmont together… but people are already trying to start shit and saying that she’s also spending a whole lot of time with John.

From News.com.au:

Gossip website Hollywood Life has a source who claims Mayer has “had a thing for Jennifer for quite some time” and began pursuing her some months ago.

They reportedly enjoyed an intimate dinner together a few weeks back, despite her reported involvement with Martin.

I mean, this sorta sounds like nothing, so I’m going to give Jennifer the benefit of the doubt and hope that she’s intelligent enough not to even THINK of going there with Mayer. I totally want the Jennifer Lawrence/Chris Martin pairing to last – they’re so unlikely that I think it might just work.

Josh Hutcherson thinks Jennifer Lawrence’s nude picture leak is “not fair”

josh hutcherson jennifer lawrence

Josh Hutcherson plays the soft-spoken Peeta Melark alongside Jennifer Lawrence‘s Katniss in The Hunger Games, and he always seemed to be… not acting in that role. He seemed quiet and sweet but a bit corny, and he still does to this day, bless him. Following suit, he made a statement of sorts about JLaw’s nude picture leak, saying simply that it’s “not fair” because stars are people too, you guys.

From ET Canada:

“Actually I haven’t talked to her but I just think all that stuff is so ridiculous,”  the actor says of the set of nude celebrity photos which leaked over Labour Day weekend. “We’re people too man, we just want to live, we want to be normal people, it’s not fair.”

Hutcherson, who has been acting since he was 9-years-old, provided insight into how Lawrence might be dealing with the scandal and elaborates on the loss of privacy that comes with fame. “It’s something you obviously don’t want to happen to you and its really unfortunate that it happens but, I don’t know, I hate the way the world sort of views those sorts of issues,” he explains. “I think everyone has their own way of getting through it… It’s really truly not fair.”

I suppose it’s probably uncomfortable to be asked about something so personal that has zero to do with you but that you’re expected to have an opinion on because you know the person it DOES have to do with, so I can see why he came across as a bit of a bumbling idiot, but I would just have said before cameras started rolling, “Yo, don’t ask me about that shit.” People do it all the time! Save yourself the embarrassment, Josh.

Leaked Nudes To Become “Art”

jennifer-lawrence

Jennifer Lawrence was one of the celebs caught in the leaked nudes disaster and unfortunately for her and the others (like Kate Upton and Kirsten Dunst) the photos aren’t going away anytime soon — in fact, they’re going to be featured as “art”. From E!:

Despite plenty of outrage from the public, Cory Allen Contemporary Art and artist XVALA are proceeding with their upcoming art show, “No Delete,” which will feature provocative images of the A-list stars.

“The artist sees these images as art,” Cory Allen explained to E! News. “[They are] a representation of someone or something that has a different meaning for everyone. Transforming those images to canvas presents them in a different light. It makes them real.”

Last week, CACA announced the leaked images will be life-size, unaltered and printed on canvases. The “art” will be held at a showroom in Saint Petersburg, Fla.

Despite several stars threatening legal action against anyone who posts the photos, Allen says what they’re doing doesn’t deserve legal ramifications.

“Our goal was not to do anything illegal. It was for XVALA to create art; to follow through with his vision for this project and for me to promote it,” Allen explained to E! News. “We have not been contacted by anyone.”

Okay, a few things. First, this reminds me of something Andy Warhol would do, although he’d definitely alter the images with his famous brightly colored silk screening technique. Secondly, I’m all for “art”, but I think this needs to die. What happened to these women was basically a sex crime. Their private photos were leaked, and it doesn’t matter how it happened — what matters is that it happened and it was a terrible invasion of privacy, and it should stop. Thirdly, this seems like a really lame excuse for art. But those are just my opinions.

What do you guys think? Would you see the exhibit? When it comes to art, is anything up for grabs?
