I once referred to Jennifer Lawrence as “the anti-Kristen Stewart” but I might have been wrong. I just read Jennifer’s full interview at Elle Magazine (here), and she and K-Stew have one thing in common: eye-rolling. They’re both those too-cool-for-school types who roll their eyes as a form of meaningful communication. I get that they’re both young, but they both need to STOP IT. Jennifer especially, because she could be so, so much more. Anyway, here are some highlights from the Elle piece:
On getting ready for the Oscars: “Fifteen minutes before, the guy doing my hair goes, ‘If you can get a salad, get a salad…I said, ‘I’m getting a Philly cheesesteak.’ I’m sure there’s proof on a hotel bill somewhere.”
On preparing for her role in X-Men First Class: “I knew that if I was going to be naked in front of the world, I wanted to look like a woman and not a prepubescent 13-year-old boy…I’m so sick of people thinking that’s what we’re supposed to look like.”
On growing up with two older brothers: “Being the youngest and the only girl, I think everyone was so worried about me being a brat that they went in the exact opposite direction of treating me like Cinderella. I’d slap my brother on the arm, and he’d throw me down the stairs. I was always like, ‘Can we talk about excessive force, please?’”
On getting used to star treatment: “When you’re on set, everybody’s like, ‘Oh, do you need water? Here’s 45 bottles!’ It’s really bizarre…I’m still getting used to it. I’m still in wonderland.”
She sounds like she’s got a healthy body image for someone so young, but I would like to point out that over the course of the past year, Jennifer did lose a notable amount of weight. You can argue with me and say that she just lost her puberty baby fat (I’m still waiting to lose mine), but her newly slender frame happened right around the same time as all of the awards shows. I’m not saying it to be bitchy – I do like Jennifer, and I think she’s talented and well-adjusted, all of that. But she went on a major diet or something, which shows me that there’s some part of her that wouldn’t mind looking like “a prepubescent 13-year-old boy.”
