Everyone loves Jennifer Lawrence, right? She’s great! She’s zany and awkward and has no problem talking about her bowel movements on national television! Oh, and she’s a really great actress, too. But while the nation might be ready to make JLaw their new BFF (as they have been for a few years running, now), there’s one person who’s fighting the opposite corner: Joan Rivers.
Basically, in case you forgot this bullshit, Jennifer Lawrence once said that Rivers’ Fashion Police promotes the wrong values – something she’s been quite outspoken on basically her entire career. Rivers didn’t take too kindly to anyone slamming her nothing of a show and called JLaw “arrogant”, which was sorta the end of that… or so you would think!
Actually, Joan is talking about Jennifer AGAIN, saying it’s her NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTION to get Jennifer Lawrence to “grow up”… and embrace snarking on other people’s outfits? I don’t really get her point, but here’s the quote:
“My New Year’s resolution is [ensuring] Jennifer Lawrence grows up and realizes how lucky she is and calms down.
“I love that she’s telling everyone how wrong it is to worry about retouching and body image, and meanwhile, she has been touched up more than a choir boy at the Vatican. Look at her posters. She doesn’t have a nose, she has two holes.
“She just has to learn, don’t talk if you’re doing it.”
Well, to be fair, Joan Rivers, Jennifer Lawrence isn’t a magazine editor and gets no say as to how and when she’s airbrushed or touched up on magazine shoots. Second of all, you’re basically telling her not to have any morals or standards in life and embrace fakeness, as you clearly have with your 9,000 plastic surgeries. Why don’t you “grow up” and embrace aging naturally?
I’m not saying Jennifer Lawrence is perfect or faultless or anything of the sort, but I feel like Joan needs to get a hobby. No one’s gonna join the JLaw hate train with you, lady… except maybe others who are just as bitter.

Jack Nicholson hit on Jennifer Lawrence during a press interview after the Oscars, and he’s been wooing her ever since. After their awkward moment, Mr. Nicholson followed up by sending Ms. Lawrence a very special gift: butt plugs. Just kidding. He sent her something far more classy and romantic. Here’s what she told ABC News, via E Online:
He’s sent me flowers and a bottle of Cristal and a note that said ‘Missing you already.’ Not to brag. I should’ve probably kept that a secret so it could just be between me and Jack.
Ah, yes, Jennifer Lawrence sure is mastering the art of the humblebrag.
I know they’re just being silly, but I wouldn’t mind seeing them together as a real couple. F-ck it.

It’s more innocent than you’re probably thinking – Jennifer Lawrence‘s friend sent her a bunch of butt plugs as a joke one time and she kept them in her hotel room, where they were discovered by one of the maids. Instead of being embarrassed by her discovery, the maid apparently set them out all fancy for her – ha! Makes for a great story, at least. Let’s watch Jennifer tell it on Conan, eh?

Jennifer Lawrence is earning more points in everyone’s “Reasons To Love Jennifer Lawrence Handbook”. My handbook is covered in Lisa Frank stickers. She sat down with Barbara Walters and shared her thoughts about that dreaded f-word — “fat.” Via People:
I just think it should be illegal to call somebody fat on TV. Why is humiliating people funny? I get it, and I do it, too. We all do it. [But] I think the media needs to take responsibility for the effect it has on our younger generation, on these girls that are watching these television shows and picking up how to talk and how to be cool. So all of a sudden being funny is making fun of a girl that’s wearing an ugly dress.
Whoa, let’s not go too far, Jennifer. If I didn’t make fun of ladies’ ugly dresses, I wouldn’t have a job. No, but I get it, I get what she’s saying, and she’s right. How many times has she been called fat, and how f-cking ridiculous is that?
What do you think of her statements?

I like Jennifer Lawrence and find her willingness to be awkward and a bit eccentric in a public forum to be rather endearing. Having said that, her interview on The Late Show with David Letterman even made ME slightly uncomfortable. She seemed manic, overly hyper and couldn’t seem to slow down and just relax. I’m not sure what’s up with her – maybe this is just how she is all the time (I admittedly have read more interviews with her than I’ve watched), but man oh man.
You’ve gotta hand it to her for being one of the world’s leading ladies and still letting the world know that she’s a possible hypochondriac who shits her pants. I think Richard Lawson at The Wire best described what I was feeling:
I suppose it’s all charming, but I feel a bit of artifice and aggression seeping into Jennifer Lawrence’s whole “aren’t a I lovable good-times gal, just a real clumsy cut-up” shtick. This interview is a bit manic, like she feels like she needs to pedal a bit harder to get the same juice she used to get. Which is not good! We don’t want to see that. She should just be herself. Though I guess the trouble is, the more of these things you do, and Jennifer Lawrence does so very many interviews, you probably start to forget what that means. Herself. What is your real self, when so much of your life is the same anecdotes over and over again, answers to the same questions, an unending stream of compliments that demand modesty, or self-effacement. I’m sure Jennifer Lawrence knows her real self when she’s, I dunno, on the toilet or something, but herself as it relates to the public world, I wonder if that makes much sense to her anymore. Which is weird, and sad.
That seems right, but I still really like her.
