I’ve never met anyone who doesn’t adore Jennifer Lawrence. She’s wormed her way into our miserly hearts just by being her funny, sometimes awkward and always down-to-earth self. Despite her massive success, there’s no chances of JLaw going down the asshole route, as her family would never let such a thing happen even if she did.
“I just constantly feel so lucky, that I don’t really have time to feel cocky,” she says. “I was raised to have value for money, to have respect for money, even though you have a lot of it.
“That’s why mini-bars are difficult, because it’s like yes, I can afford a $6 Snickers bar, but there’s just something wrong with that! I still drive my same car I’ve been driving for a long time and I haven’t bought a house yet.
“Definitely my family is not the kind of family that would ever let me turn into an asshole or anything like that, so I am fortunate to have them.”
Word. It’s important to have a good, grounding family who don’t get too caught up in the Hollywood lifestyle and are capable of knocking you down a few pegs if you need it. Also, I have a feeling I’d be exactly like her if I ever hit it big. $6 for a Snickers bar is egregious, especially when I know I can get them 3 for $1 when Rite Aid is having a sale, you know?

Jennifer Lawrence, everyone’s favorite alternative to Anne Hathaway, at some point apparently wanted to be the bachelorette of The Bachelor‘s spin-off, The Bachelorette. “Wanted” does not mean, “almost was” or “was even a remote possibility.” She knew that her agents/managers would never allow it, but that didn’t kill the desire. According to The National Enquirer:
[Jennifer] is so enamored of The Bachelor that she approached the show’s host Chris Harrison at the Oscars and gushed about it. What’s more, she once pleaded with her handlers to try to get her onto the popular ABC dating competition.
“Her agent and publicist were aghast,” said a source. “They told her, ‘You don’t want to do this!’ “She said, ‘Yes, I do.’
“They had to talk her out of it.”
How amazing would that be? The paparazzi are going to hound anyone she dates, why not just put it on TV?
Ms. Lawrence has made no apologies for loving reality television, proclaiming,
[My apartment] like a reality TV show cave. When I’m out, I think about my couch…like, ‘It would be awesome to be on it right now. I bet there’s an episode of Dance Moms on. Am I missing a new episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians? I’m just stressed by the idea of missing them.
Her people wouldn’t let her to a reality TV show in a million years, but I cling to the hope that one day she’ll tell them to f-ck off and make Bachelorette history.
This year’s bachelorette is Desiree Hartsock, one of Bachelor Biceps‘ many almosts.

Harry Styles usually goes for women that are old enough to be his mother since girls his own age rarely put out or whatever, but he’s staying in his peer group for now and is apparently interested in bagging Jennifer Lawrence. He apparently went so far as to tweet a fake account (she’s not even on Twitter) in hopes of getting closer. Since JLaw has a molecule of common sense, there’s a better chance of Lindsay Lohan going to prison for 10 years than there is of Harry getting into her pants, but whatever.
Before the Oscars Harry also tweeted to say that he thought Jennifer deserved to win an Oscar, but it turned out that he’d not actually seen Silver Linings Playbook because a few days later he tweeted that he’s just watched the film and that he “really liked it.”
“He was hoping to start chatting to her casually on Twitter – he’s done it with loads of other celebs before – but didn’t realise it wasn’t the real Jennifer Lawrence,” a source tells heat exclusively
“He’s not getting ahead of himself, but he’d love to meet her – though she’s one of the few girls he might not be able to keep his cool around.”
This is so random and bizarre that it’s probably not true, but God bless him if it is. After all, who doesn’t have a little crush on Jennifer Lawrence? She’s hilarious, intelligent, a great actress, down-to-earth and pretty. Sounds like a good combo to me. Still, being so great means she’ll have her pick of the litter and I don’t think ‘womanizing member of a here today/gone tomorrow boy band’ is anywhere on her list. Who knows, though? Crazier things have happened.

In what is a strange – but not really all that strange, for some odd reason – new story, it seems Adele and Jennifer Lawrence struck up a friendship at the Oscars in February and now they spend all their spare time gabbing on the phone about boys and nail polish. I’m kidding about the boys and nail polish part, but Adele is said to be helping JLaw find a place to live while she’s over in London in a few months to film the next X-Men movie.
From The Sun:
A source said: “Adele’s been hanging around with JENNIFER LAWRENCE since the Oscars.
“Jennifer’s set to come to London later this year to film an X Men movie and Adele’s recommending she move to Notting Hill, where she has a house.”
Well, okay. I think this is one case where the press is making something out of nothing. How often do you think Jennifer Lawrence and Adele have actually “hung around” together since the Oscars? My bet is less than one. Chances are, they probably ran into each other in the bathroom during a commercial break and Jennifer said, “Hey Adele, I love your kewl London accent!” and Adele was like, “OMG I’m a big fan of The Hunger Games, you should come to London!” and then Jennifer replied, “I totally am, actually – I’m filming the new X-Men movie there!” and then Adele suggested that she get a place in Notting Hill because it’s super posh. That’s exactly how it went down, I’m sure of it.

Jennifer Lawrence remains one of the most incredibly lovely, down-to-earth women in the industry in a new interview with The Sun, wherein she admits that she was picked on a lot in school (though she got the bullies back) and offers advice to anyone who might be going through something similar now.
Jen says: “I changed schools a lot when I was in elementary school because some girls were mean.
“They were less mean in middle school, because I was doing all right, although this one girl gave me invitations to hand out to her birthday party that I wasn’t invited to.
“But that was fine, I just hocked a loogie on them and threw them in the trash can.”
She adds: “Don’t worry about the bitches — that could be a good motto, because you come across people like that throughout your life.”
It’s nice to see someone who’s strong, smart, hilarious and refuses to play the victim. There’s not much else to say here – she’s just great, don’t you think?

I loved The Hunger Games book trilogy, and while I thought the movie was only good rather than great (as most big screen adaptations of books tend to be, unfortunately), I’m pretty pumped for the second installment, Catching Fire, that’s due to hit theatres in November. Plus, the visual effects, costumes and make-up are fantastic, which makes the artwork/promotional posters a lot of fun to look at. Check out the new shot of Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen above, and then scroll through some others below.
