Jennifer Lawrence’s mom took her Oscar statue: ‘It’s on a piano in Kentucky!”

Jennifer Lawrence

Yesterday, some of you seemed quite surprised by Jennifer Lawrence’s amazing booty pop at Comic-Con, so I just wanted to provide some photo evidence that JLaw’s rear view has been like this for quite some time, but it takes the right fit to show it off, such as with this amazing Calvin Klein dress at this year’s Vanity Fair Oscar party.

While we’re on the topic of Oscars, Jennifer is talking about where her gold-plated statuette is currently stashed — at her parent’s house in Kentucky! Kaiser reminded me that Angelina likewise gave her Oscar to her mother, and I remember reading that Kate Winslet stores hers in a very bizarre place, on the back of her toilet, because she thought it would be nice to allow her guests to “just sneakily have a little hold and put it back down again” … with their unwashed bathroom hands. That’s pretty gross, isn’t it? I much prefer the JLaw rationale of storage:

Jennifer Lawrence won the Oscar for Best Actress this year, but the Hunger Games: Catching Fire star says her parents now have custody of the coveted gold statue.

“My parents took it back to Kentucky, ’cause I felt odd having it, like, on display in my house,” the 22-year-old star – who won the Academy Award for her performance in Silver Linings Playbook – told Access Hollywood’s Scott Mantz at Comic-Con 2013 in San Diego, Calif., on Saturday.

“If anybody’s coming over to my house, I didn’t want them to remember that. Just kind of puts a weird energy out,” she explained.

The actress initially tried placing the prestigious award in an inconspicuous place, before surrendering it the care to her parents. “I put it in the hallway towards the bathroom, and my mom was like, ‘I’m taking it. It shouldn’t be here.’ And now it’s on a piano in Kentucky!”

Jennifer also dished on the advice she recently gave fellow young star Shailene Woodley, who was nervous about how her life would change if she took on the role of Beatrice “Tris” Prior in the upcoming film, Divergent.

“She asked, basically, ‘If you had the opportunity to do this again, would you? Because it’s scary. It’s life changing,’” Jennifer, who had her own doubts about signing on to play Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games movies, shared. “And I said, ‘Yes. As many things change, as many things are horrible and scary, it’s worth it if you love the movie,’ which she did.”

That’s pretty decent of Jennifer to give Shailene Woodley some advice on how to handle the upcoming Divergent franchise madness even though it probably won’t fare nearly as well as Twilight or Hunger Games at the box office. I mean, can you imagine if Kristen Stewart was asked for her take on how to handle the press in the face of overnight success? KStew would be like, “Roll your eyes a lot and give ‘em the bird.”

Shailene also told Vanity Fair that she’s never personally met JLaw, but the two spoke on the phone (in what I presume is the same conversation that Jennifer refers to above), and JLaw also told her, “It will be the best thing that ever happened. But don’t be an idiot, do a sex tape, [or] do drugs. And go to Whole Foods when your movie opens.” (Oh, and be sure to smoke pot on your balcony after winning an Oscar. Kidding.) Remember when Hunger Games first came out, and JLaw really did go to Whole Foods? The poor girl couldn’t get out the door without help from security, but at least she can laugh and be sarcastic about it now.

    I don’t see Divergent (or Moral Instruments, while we’re at it) becoming as big a deal as Hunger Games. They seem like some sort of ‘variation on a theme’ rather than original stories – at least from the ones made into big blockbusters. Also the casts lack the presence/charisma of the HG and Twilight gangs (KStew was a brooding presence but one nonetheless. Gloomy but not bland). We shall see.

  2. Virgilia Coriolanus says:

    I am officially in love with her ass. I said it, and I regret nothing.

  3. Andrew says:

    God I love her. I have to say I would feel weird having an oscar displayed in my house if I was a celeb…her parents must be super proud, glad they’re not fame whoring parents like other celeb parents.

  4. Gabby says:

    Lol at the guy shamelessly staring at dat azz in the first pic. I love Jlaw and I think she looks very healthy and amazing!:-)

  5. Joanna says:

    that’s so stupid, those pictures with the ass facing the camera. What’s wrong with a normal picture? but she does have a nice butt

  6. Samtha says:

    Her body is CRAZY. Her skin is amazing too.

  7. Micki says:

    So her Oscar is not on display at her place but on display at her parent’s house. Nice.

    About Kate Winslet’s Oscar. I think it’s a very British thing to boast without “boasting”. Guest loo is the preferable place for it as you just “take the piss out of it” as a friend said. I can think of at least 4 occasions when I read certificates and such in a guest WC.

  8. Leah says:

    She is a cool girl for hollywood and she has a healthy body. I love that her an Nicholas Hoult are back on, they are such a cute couple

  9. Jules says:

    I adore Jennifer Lawrence, so very talented and grounded and my goodness, her body is spectacular!.

      I thought I was alone on this

    • angie says:

      aw such special snowflakes *rolls eyes*
      i don’t think she is overrated at all JMO
      I guess different taste for different people but, it seems professionals in the movie industry who should know more about acting than anything else do seem to think she has talent.
      I generally prefer opinions of professionals who know what they are talking cause you know, they have work experience in the industry than some random internet people JMO

      • spiderkitty says:

        Don’t fool yourself. Hollywood is pushing her and KStew and this Shailene girl because they need the next generation of movie stars, not because they are goo actresses. All the hype she has, is just fluff, she is a creation. She was created in the CAA building in Beverly Hills.
        If you want young talent, go look at Saorise Ronan, Mia Wasikowska, Tatiana Maslay, Carey Mulligan and Rooney Mara.

      • Bijlee says:

        @spiderkitty I have to say I agree with this. Jlaw is pushed onto us plebians as a force to be reckoned with when she has contemporaries who are absolutely just as good if not better than she is.

        Saorise Ronan is completely underrated and she was my first choice for Katniss. She would have been perfect for it. She’s average height but they could have made her look small. She has unbelievable talent. She could convincingly play the starving, lithe, athletic Katniss. And she’s the perfect skin color for producers.

        I like Jlaw, but the hunger games first film bored me to tears. Like hot damn, it was soooooo boring, badly written, directed, and yes acted. She’s overblown. She’s a good actress, but the most talented actress in America???? Please. Take a look at her wiki page. Seriously guys, it’s embarrassing.

        And yes CAA they know how it works. Why do you think Reese With her spoon has been able to keep up the image of America’s Sweetheart for a long time? Same thing with Jlaw, they’re playing to an audience.

        And lot’s of industry individuals fawned over natalie portman’s “brilliantly”, boring, blithering ballerina performance…so I don’t give industry individuals much weight. They’re often in somebody’s pockets.

      • FassDaActor says:

        You’re telling the truth. HW is really pushing her for financial reasons and because she has the right ‘look’…not because she’s a great actress. She’s not terrible but the push is obvious.

      • Raquel says:

        She’s hardly overrated. Overrated is when you can’t do your job, but people will act like you can based on the numbers in your Twitter feed and the paps parked outside your house. She just got thrust into the public image all at once–she went from that phenomenal performance in Winter’s Bone, to two big-budget blockbusters in a small span of time. But, simply because her career rocketed, rather than gradually ascended, does not make her overrated. She landed both of her big-budget roles on the basis of her acting, and she performed to the level of those roles.

        Love Lawrence, or hate her, but she hasn’t actually ever flubbed a role. Maybe she didn’t perform the way that fans of a movie wanted her too, but that is not the same as bad acting. She can deliver consistently good performances & make her characters believable.

        There are actresses who are hit-or-miss that get just as much attention and worship as Lawrence. Hell, there are actresses who’s performances in their “career breakthrough” films should have been nothing short of career suicide…and the media pretends they can act. That is overrated, in my opinion. Lawrence can perform to her level of casting & fame.

      • Jules says:

        @angie: I agree with you, Jennifer Lawrence has been receiving praise for her work long before Winter’s Bone, The Hunger Games, let alone Silver Linings Playbook. All the way back to The Burning Plain, then The Poker House when no one knew who the hell she was (those were the first two films for which she started on her awards roll as well).In my opinion, Lawrence is one of the most incredibly talented (and grounded!) young actresses working today.

        At the end of the day, it’s how I feel about a particular actor/actress (my opinion, that matters most) but, it just so happens that most of the respected critics out there whose critical opinions I trust, happen to agree as well that Jennifer Lawrence is one of the most talented young actresses working today.

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        Like I said before, I think that she’s one of the few young actresses that can actually act, and that I can only see her getting better at her job as time goes on-she’s also smart, reliable, doesn’t let her personal drama get in the way of work, isn’t only about “oh, I want babies!” or “I looooove my boyfriend!” in interviews-she can have a good conversation, and so on.

        I think that she just lets her pr team do whatevs. Which isn’t a completely bad thing, but I think that she should get a bigger backbone soon. And its also kinda hard for her to say no, because she is in a huge franchise right now. You can’t just do one interview and be done with it.

    • Rice says:

      I wouldn’t quite say “overrated”. She has a wider range than someone like Kristen Stewart. I hated Hunger Games and everything about it. I liked Silver Linings Playbook but I didn’t think she was spectacular in it. Her other roles have been much better. It just seems like the public is being forced to love her, like she is perfect or something. I don’t like it. Let us get to love her on our own without the overkill.

  10. Schnikes says:

    There’s some trickery going on with that a$$. Looks great in a dress but it’s a flabby, pancakey, semi-mess in a bikini.

  11. bettyrose says:

    I love JLaw so much that I can overlook that she is way too sexy for Katniss. But she really captures the Katniss attitude perfectly. I know that’s not what she won the Oscar for but don’t care.

  12. Ray says:

    J law’s booty is my new inspiration for going to the gym

    • Raquel says:

      I really don’t know how she pulls it off that well, though. I mean, I have a type similar to hers (ie, I have curves). But when I work out and my waist shrinks, everything else shrinks with it…not to the pez container shape, but certain not as curvy as she can manage.

      No doubt, she works hard for that figure (although, she has the class to not be as obnoxious about it as the vast majority of HW), but some of it must be some genetic-lottery win, too. I’d hate her for it, but she’s so likeable.

  13. Jules says:

    @Raquel: THIS!…plus one million, on both posts.

  14. lala in nYc says:

    Can someone ID her flat sandals – black and gold in the last photo?

    And love this frayed, choppy white dress.

    Go J-law!

  15. Kristin says:

    Now see, SHE has a banging body. I know whenever a Miley Cyrus post surfaces that some of you all think her bod is fabulous, but I disagree. I think Jennifer Lawrence is way hotter, and has a really pretty face. Plus I love her personality and attitude. She rocks:)

  16. Goef says:

    One thing I can give Lawrence credit for it not being knocked-up by a fame-seking loser on a movie set like Natalie Portman did. Jennifer is the only actress so far that is not ‘cursed’ by the statue. We have already heard stories about Natalie behaving rudley on movie sets, she has lost her fans. Everyone hates her now. Lawrence is very lucky since lots like her still. I don’t think she deserved her Oscar like Portman but she is very likeable.

  17. lily says:

    I don’t get her Oscar win at all. Riva and Chastain were way better than her.

  18. Jules says:

    I did not see Amore, so, I can’t comment on the performance but I did see ZDT…no freaking way did Chastain deserve an Oscar for that performance. Chastain was better in The Help for Christ sakes. Jennifer Lawrence (in my opinion) totally deserved her Oscar…she kicked ass as Tiffany. Again, read the reviews Lawrence received, from informed critics. Those types of reviews have been consistent since Lawrence starred in her first film.
