Some might say that it’s safe to say she completely bombed, and hey. Just in time for the Oscars, too.
Couple questions and comments I have for Jennifer girl and ‘SNL’ at large:
—That opening monologue. Oh God. There might as well have been someone standing three feet in front of her, prompting her to read off a card. Awkward.
—Second, I don’t really get why it was OK to trash the other Oscar nominees in a skit that … well, gosh, it just wasn’t all that funny.
—Last. I know we kind of said this already, but that was just horrible. Horrible.
… Somewhere, Lindsay Lohan snickers through her cocaine-snorting, choking on the powder and hocking up a big loog. She spits it out and calls it “Jennifer Lawrence,” adding it to the expansive loog collection that she has and features loogs called “Amanda Bynes” and “Paris Hilton.”

Well, this sucks. You want to know what sucks more? The fact that this story comes from People, so you know it’s probably true. This sucks.
The report says that Jennifer Lawrence “has split from her longtime boyfriend,” Nicholas Hoult, which maybe makes it sound like she’s the one who broke up with him? I can’t imagine it being the other way around. Like, I really can’t see anyone looking at Jennifer Lawrence and saying “I don’t want any more access to your boobs.” Or even “I don’t want to be able to hang out with you all the time anymore.” Jennifer Lawrence is amazing. Who would break up with her?!
But then again, Nicholas Hoult is cute as a button. And did you see Skins? If not, everybody take a break, watch Skins, and then let me know how this guy and Jennifer Lawrence weren’t one of the most stealthily amazing couples of our time. I AM HEARTBROKEN!
In happier news, Jennifer Lawrence looked really, really amazing last night:

Love this girl. Love her to death. But I simply cannot accept this dress. And I don’t feel like I should have to.
I don’t know what this whole trend is with the Golden Girls fashion making a comeback, but it has to stop. In this day and age, there is just no need for that many sequins. I feel like this dress could be seen on Dorothy Zbornak as the top of a pantsuit, and that pains me. I feel like Blanche would wear this with pantyhose and huge clip-on earrings when she’s feeling particularly saucy. And I feel like Rose wouldn’t wear this unless it was some shade of pink.
The bottom line is this: no dress made in the 21st century needs to give me so many ideas about how the beloved characters of a show about postmenopausal women in the 80′s would wear it. There is just no reason for this.

Sorry, did you say something? I can’t hear you over my complete and utter adoration for Jennifer Lawrence. I am going to get this magazine cover tattooed on my body so that I can lovingly stroke her face and pretend that she is smiling like that at me. Did we just cross over into creepy? I think so. Let’s keep going.
As if the photo shoot from Jennifer’s issue of Vanity Fair wasn’t enough, now we’re getting to hear some bits from the interview. And they will make you hug your computer and roll around in the floor with it out of sheer love for this girl. You know, if you aren’t doing that already.
From Vanity Fair:
On her bow and arrow: “One time I actually used it for defense. I pulled into my garage and I heard men in my house. And I was like, ‘I’m not letting them take my stuff. I had just gotten back from training, so I had the bow and arrows in the back of my car. I went to my car and I put this quiver on me and I had my bow and I loaded it and I’m walking up the stairs. And I look, and my patio doors were open, and there were guys working right there, and I was like, ‘Heyyy, how you doin’?'” Lawrence’s friends were disappointed by the anticlimactic outcome of the event, the actress tells Windolf: “They were like, ‘We’ve got to stage someone to break into your house and you can kill them!’ That would be the funniest news ever. Katniss Everdeen actually kills someone with a bow and arrow!”
On acting: “Not to sound rude, but [acting] is stupid,” Lawrence says. “Everybody’s like, ‘How can you remain with a level head?’ And I’m like, ‘Why would I ever get cocky? I’m not saving anybody’s life. There are doctors who save lives and firemen who run into burning buildings. I’m making movies. It’s stupid.’”
On Meryl Streep: “Once I’m obsessed with somebody, I’m terrified of them instantly. I’m not scared of them—I’m scared of me and how I will react,” she tells Windolf. “Like, for instance, one time someone was introducing me to Bill Maher, and I saw Meryl Streep walk into the room, and I literally put my hand right in Bill Maher’s face and said, ‘Not now, Bill!,’ and I just stared at Meryl Streep.” So, Windolf asks, did she meet Meryl Streep? “Of course not. I just creepily stared at her.”
She also talks about how she never went to high school – she calls herself “vastly uneducated” – and something about crying to her mother, but those bits have yet to be disclosed.
I don’t know a lot of things, you guys, but I know that I love this girl with my whole heart. Well, I love her as much as you can love someone who you’ve never met or spoken to and who doesn’t even know you exist. Are we getting creepy again? It’s ok. Shh. It’s ok.

Yes. Love it. Love to pieces. Love it enough to buy three copies of this issue when it’s released: one to look at, one to cut up into a collage for my Jennifer Lawrence shrine, and one to store and keep forever. I. Love. It.
She’s just … I don’t even know. She’s amazing. She’s so, so beautiful and sexy and funny, and she’s SO talented. It gives me so much hope for the world that a girl as awesome as Jennifer wins these kinds of titles, because even though they’re pointless, at least now they’re pointless with good taste.
We don’t have much of the interview yet, but we do know that Jennifer said that “I love filmmaking. I love acting but I don’t feel married to just being in front of the camera,” and also that “I’m a nomad. I just looked in New York and I was looking in LA and I can’t figure out where I want to live.” That’s interesting*, right? Ok, not so much, but how great would it be to see a movie directed by this girl? Or written, even, wouldn’t that be neat? I don’t know, I can’t see for all the hearts in my eyes.
I’ll put the rest of the pictures in the gallery, but here’s another preview:
*Hey, I’m going to ask you some questions now, ok? My dude and I want to move – not right this very second, but we do want to relocate. We’re looking for someplace really warm near the ocean, and somewhere where the cost of living isn’t astronomical. Also somewhere with neat theatre. Any suggestions? Right now we’re looking at Savannah, Georgia. Please help me choose my path in life.

So Jennifer Lawrence did an interview with Marie Claire South Africa where she talked about body image (because duh, fatty) and what her social life is like (hint: limited). There’s not much else to say about this girl, because she’s probably the most wonderful female celebrity to ever have existed, so I’ll let her take it on over from here.
Here’s Jennifer on her New Year’s resolution:
My New Year’s Resolution is to stand up for myself. It’s hard for me. Nobody wants to be disliked. You always want to be polite and be nice. I tried to find a balance in saying what I mean and still being nice. I can’t do it. I have this ‘okay’ attitude and everything. I end up allowing myself to get walked over and resenting it.
Jennifer on going out:
I don’t like going out that much. I’m kind of an old lady. After it’s 11, I’m like ‘Don’t these kids ever get tired?’ When I’m out, I think about my couch.
And last, Jennifer on her awesome body image:
I’d rather look chubby on screen and like a person in real life.
Honestly, this lady just doesn’t get any more darling.
On a related note, how do you guys feel about New Year’s resolutions? Are you making any? I never make them, because I’m not really good at that whole “lifestyle change” thing that sometimes has to accompany New Year’s resolutions, but I admire those who do, and those who can stick to them. All I know is that this past year has been a pretty phenomenal year, and if 2012 is any indication of what’s to come in 2013, well. There’s going to be surprises around every fricking corner, guys.
What’s your resolution, if you happen to be making one?
