Jennifer Lawrence looks hot on the cover of Rolling Stone: one of her best looks ever?

Jennifer Lawrence covers the latest issue of Rolling Stone magazine, and I’m a little bit mesmerized by the cover shoot. Look at how gorgeous (and pleasantly hot) she looks in relatively ordinary people-type clothes! Maybe this phenomenon can easily explain why she looked so comfortable (and amazingly hot) in that red Calvin Klein Oscars dress, which was very simple, as opposed to the vast majority of looks she’s donned to promote The Hunger Games. There’s also an interview of course, but the excerpts released so far are mostly what other people say about what she’s said to them. I guess you could call it hearsay but of a more charming variety than expected:

Woody Harrelson on JLaw: Lawrence, 21, has a way of making a first impression. Woody Harrelson, her Hunger Games co-star, still remembers their first meeting. “I was on my bus, and on my bus I have a yoga swing. Jennifer comes on, and she goes, ‘Hi, Woody, I’m J– is that a sex swing?’ Her first sentence to me.”

Josh Hutcherson on JLaw: “When I got cast, she called me up for one of those five-minute ‘Excited to work with you, blah, blah, blah’ things. The conversation started with her saying, ‘Think about a catheter going in – ouch!’ and then turns into a 45-minute rant about zombies and the apocalypse.”

Zoe Kravitz on JLaw: “I’d met her a few times, and she was like, ‘You should come over and we’ll hang out.’ So I go over to her apartment, and she opens the door in a towel. She’s like, ‘Come in, sorry, you’re early, I was about to shower.’ And she drops her towel and gets in the shower, and starts shaving her legs, totally naked. She was like, ‘Are we here yet? Is this OK?’ And I was like, ‘I guess we’re there!'”

[From Rolling Stone]

You know, I wouldn’t put it past Woody to have a sex swing, and I used to find him hot after his bare-bootied scene in The Cowboy Way, but it’s hard to think of him that way after seeing his insane crackage in 2012. It didn’t seem to bother JLaw in the slightest though, but I’m not sure what to think about her dropping the towel in front of Zoe. They’re BFFs now too, so I guess JLaw isn’t that modest about nudity in front of other girls. No big deal.

Jennifer also did a recent cover interview for Parade as well, and this particular cover image bugs me. It’s too polished and robot-like to be either JLaw or Katniss, but the interview is fairly enlightening. She talks about the Kardashians as a precursor to reality shows being the bane of society’s existence:

On Katniss: “I love Katniss. She doesn’t have a lot, but she’s happy, and she faces death out of love for her family. She doesn’t want to be a hero, but she becomes the symbol for a revolution, a kind of futuristic Joan of Arc. I’ve never played a part this famous. It’s insane to get recognized from a movie that hasn’t been released yet. That’s just bizarre. And scary.”

On reality television vs. Hunger Games: “I was watching the Kardashian girl getting divorced, and that’s a tragedy for anyone. But they’re using it for entertainment, and we’re watching it. The books hold up a terrible kind of mirror: This is what our society could be like if we became desensitized to trauma and to each other’s pain.”

On opening day: “I’m always nervous. I always think this is going to be the end of my career. I’m going to have to go back to school and nobody’s ever going to want to see me again.”

[Frm Parade]

I like how JLaw doesn’t mention the first name of “the Kardashian girl” like she can’t even be bothered to know what the fake-assed chick’s name is. She probably didn’t mean to sound bitchy about it, but I can still enjoy the effect. JLaw seems like a fairly intelligent, low-key type of celebrity, and just for fun, here’s a photo of her Santa Monica condo, which is worth a relatively modest $600,000. Sure, it’s worth more than most of us would spend on a house, but money doesn’t go as far in California as it does in middle America.

    Gorgeous cover shot. She is striking in an Uma Thurman kind of way.

    • gee says:

      Yes! She does kind of look like her!

    • Lucy says:

      You are so right on with that comment, and she’s also very refreshing in terms of the new generation of actors, she has the looks, talent and a brain that can put together meaningful comments. Love her!

    • Deedee says:

      There is nothing hot about her.

      • Coucou says:

        Deedee, have to say that i couldn’t agree more, i mean, she’s getting so much hype, and she seems like a smart, funny kid, but hot? I think not. She has nothing at all even remotely similar to a young Uma! For me, a definite young hot was Megan, just stunning (before she started blabbing), but when i look at her, i try to force myself to even say “cute…pretty..” but i can’t, much less “hot!” The only thing this girl has going for her in the looks department is her youth prime. And oooh doesn’t Hollywood get its rocks off for that. But she does seem to have a quirky personality, so she’s got that going for her. Haven’t seen her act yet, so sorry, i can only comment on the superficial, and i’m not impressed in the least.

    • Emma says:

      I see nipple in the cover photo :S

  2. marlee says:

    *sigh* I just love her. Seems like someone you could just hang out with. I’d like to say that she’s different than other young celebs, but lets see where the money and fame from HG takes her. Hopefully she stays pretty true to herself.

    • Katija says:

      Celebs seem to always be in the category of pretentious wannabe intellectuals or total partied-out druggos. She seems more like a normal person…. like, she’ll carry on an intelligent conversation, and then be like, “So that was fun. Wanna do a shot?”

      Adore her. She seems like she’d be a hoot to hang out with. She’s like the polar opposite of KStew.

  3. Lauren says:

    JL is naturally sexy–isn’t a plastic, slutty ditz. Her parents did a good job of raising her to be an intelligent, decent, intelligent young woman. Nice change from the talentless trash we usually are dealt. Thank goodness a real actress is bringing class back to Hollywood.

    • layla says:

      While I appreciate the healthier role model she represents – great healthy bod, head screwed on right etc… I find her looks ordinary, nor anything remotely sexy about her.

      She reminds me of a chipmunk, a chipmunk with a weak chin.

      The jury for me is also still out on her acting ability – Winters Bone was great. XMen was ugh. And Katniss, meh.

      I don’t get the amount of hype that people are giving her to be honest.

  4. Maripily says:

    I think she looks like she has a bad migraine or stomachache… I don’t see anything hot about the cover at all.

    • really says:

      Yeah, the first one was OK, even though she looks confused as hell. But then throw in the (next) Baywatch crying shot and all I can think is, “Why do people get so much enjoyment from looking at unhappy and lost women?”

      • Happy21 says:

        I didn’t think she looked like she was crying, I think it looked like she went swimming and her make-up ran…

    • suzzie says:

      Or like she’s thinking “What’s that stench?”

      She seems like any other starlet to me. I’m not a fan of her looks, but she’s ok.

  5. Newtsgal says:

    I was thinking she had alittle of a young Helen Hunt look about her in the 1st pic

  6. backwards says:

    She is a beautiful girl, inside and out.

    JLaw seems like a fairly intelligent, low-key type of celebrity, and just for fun, here’s a photo of her Santa Monica condo, which is worth a relatively modest $600,000. Sure, it’s worth more than most of us would spend on a house, but money doesn’t go as far in California as it does in middle America.

    But I bet she’ll be moving soon — after The Hunger Games’s success and seeing how easy it is to find her house…I don’t think it’s a good idea to stay there. I’m thinking crazy stalkers who can easily jump that fence/wall or neighbours who won’t enjoy the unwanted attention to their neighbourhood (or maybe not, that’s a Hollywood actress living in California we’re talking about after all…maybe they’ll even tip the paparazzi, take pictures themselves and sell them to sites/tabloids).

    • EmmaStoneWannabe says:

      Yeah she’ll move soon after HG success…but AFTER she swims in her pool of noodles. lol

  8. Jen34 says:

    She is not a pretty girl, but the dark hair suits her. That cover shot looks nothing like her.

    • rachel says:

      i dont understand how people on this site say shes “not a pretty girl.” like, what the hell do you look like? how is that girl not pretty? WTF?

  9. hedy says:

    She’s a pretty girl, but she should never smile. Always looks weird when she smiles…

    • Neelyo says:

      i was about to say the same thing. When she smiles I’m reminded of Joe Francis or Jill Zarin.

  10. kai says:

    I kept reading LENNY kravitz instead of Zoe and wondered why nobody freaked out.

  11. cmc says:

    Smokin hot in that red swimsuit. Red is totally her color.

  12. lucy2 says:

    She seems a little kooky – I like it. I hope all this success doesn’t change her too much. She seems pretty solid, but she’s still young and that’s a lot of pressure to deal with.

    I have to say, I think she’s pretty, but I don’t think she’s gorgeous. Maybe as she gets older, who knows.

  13. Zelda says:

    I most pictures (that aren’t insanely altered magazine covers) her head looks really small. I can’t get past that.

    Also, she seems very boring.

    And that Parade cover features a Sim, no?

  14. EmmaStoneWannabe says:

    She’s pretty, in a girl next door/tomboy sort of way. I think thats refreshing.

    I laughed at the “Kardashian girl” thing too. I think she has a point that we are becoming more desensitized over time.

  15. TheOriginalKitten says:

    Not super-wild about these shots..the white t-ashirt one is the best IMO. Agree with someone else who says she is a bit Helen Hunt-it’s in the shape of the eyes. I’m surprised some people think she’s not pretty..just goes to show you how subjective that stuff is.

    • Lila says:

      I think she looks good here, but I don’t find her attractive in the red carpet/less airbrushed photos. For example, she looks like a different person if you remember some of the more natural photoshoots she did when all the buzz about Winter’s Bone was around. It’s the round cheeks and small eyes that throw me off her real life appearance… You are right about it being subjective, I find Emma Stone to be beautiful but others don’t.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        Maybe that’s why I find her pretty-because I saw her in Winter’s Bone when it first came out and I’ve never seen her in anything since. I just thought she was a natural beauty-not drop-dead gorge but girl-next-door.

  16. justez says:

    I just adore her, she seems really fun and low key as everyone has said and I’m glad someone like her is getting such recognition.

  17. some bitch says:

    Gorgeous shots. The second one especially.

    Haven’t seen H.G. or read the books, but I really like Jennifer Lawrence. She’s very refreshing after K.Stew’s moping.

  18. Rachael says:

    The red swimsuit pic is kinda weird … but I think she looks really good in the cover pic with the jeans and tank.

    The stuff written about her in this article “preview” really makes me want to be 10 or 15 years younger and famous so I could be besties with her, haha. She reminds me a lot of several of my own friends. I really really hope this chick doesn’t lose her head as her fame explodes. She is just so normal and relate-able at this stage. Let’s hope she stays that way as much as possible, because I am in it for the long haul with these Hunger Games movies and I really don’t want her to start annoying me at some point before the series is out. 🙂

  19. SamGirl says:

    I totally read Zoe Kravitz as Lenny Kravitz and had a eye-popping moment. Then I did a double-take and started to breathe again.

  20. Mi says:

    The one with the red bathingsuit really freaks me out, it’s really not sexy/attractive. The cover shot is good, minimal make up look, doesn’t seem overly photoshoped or plastic.

  21. oh dear says:

    she looks sooo much hotter with darker hair!

  22. strah says:

    The eyeliner is a big problem on that cover shot. With the way people jump all over Kate & Pippa about eyeliner, I would have thought somebody would have mentioned it.

    Also, it looks like areola is showing through the shirt – not classy.

  23. Hipocricy says:

    For me she looks like an UNsquinty younger, fresher rounder Zoe Zellwegger

    She is a cute tall girl who looks better with darker hair.

  24. Laura says:

    In most of the JL posts, the writer keeps asking about her stylist (if she has one, etc) – the March InStyle issue makes a couple references to her stylist being someone named Elizabeth Stewart. Here’s a bio in case anyone is interested, in which JL is listed as a client:

  25. Snow says:

    Does anyone else notice that Rolling Stone is a glorified men’s magazine nowadays?

  26. Maria_Spain says:

    Full moon face -_-

  27. T.C. says:

    How many people get naked in front of a stranger? She didn’t even know Zoe at that time. Maybe there is more to the story.

  28. grey says:

    The first shot of her on here reminds me of the model Cintia Dicker.

  29. Nev says:

    she is gonna bring the 90’s back…since that calvin dress I predicted…easy cool and relaxed image.

  30. Kim says:

    Bad picture of a beautiful girl. Sun is in her eyes and she is squinting & looks mad. Bad photographer if this was best shot of her he/she got.

  31. Reece says:

    I’m liking her more and more.

  32. Malika says:

    people always find something to bitch at. in kstew’s case it’s her posture, attitude, bad acting. I think, Jennifer has a real talent, and she’s gorgeous. i don’t know what’s wrong with you people, in America. Maybe if you don’t have botoxed/tweaked face, body, and if you don’t have lips of jolie and body of sophia vergana, you’re not considered beautiful. wake up, people! She’s funny, witty, not arrogant or pretentious. I don’t know who would you consider beautiful both in mind and in body in hollywood.

    • monette says:

      I agree. She has a beautiful face with those big lips, a stunning figure and she can act. Tell me of another young actress that has all this and a nice personality and is down to earth like JLaw is.

    • Rachael says:

      Well, one of the commenters who criticized her looks said that Megan Fox was his/her definition of hot. So … there’s your answer. Goes to show the taste of the people who think JL is average or homely.

      I personally I have a major girl crush on her at the moment and I want to be besties with her immediately. Hope she doesn’t lose her head with all the fame now.

  33. Insertrandomname says:

    ahhhh boobies… wish i looked like that.

  34. dahlia1947 says:

    Ok her characters make her seem like a very level-headed, confident girl but to read what her co-stars, and friends say about her, she just seems like another ditz.

    She looks ok on the cover. I guess they were going for the cute, all-american girl next door look, (she’s not bad looking)but then

    Rolling Stone had to ruin that image and take the PERVY route by NOT having her WEAR A BRA.

    Good one Rolling Stone. Joining in on sexualizing yet another young actress/singer that probably millions of young girls are looking up to right now.

    Yay for you. More magazine sales.

    • Aria says:

      Dahlia, my first impression was she wasn’t wearing a bra but if you look closely there is some kind of bandeau in boobs part. No nips showing. Excuse me for my english!

    • Coucou says:

      Yup, you said it, Dahlia. I’m sure Terry Richardson is just foaming at the mouth trying to book a shoot with her. Ick.

  35. Aria says:

    I like her. She’s not the next Meryl Streep but at list can act unlike the girl from Twilight.

  36. spinner says:

    She is a pretty girl. Her face reminds me a bit of Stacy Keibler. I am impressed with her beautiful, healthy body. She looks fit…not like a bunch of sticks tied together.

  37. Kay says:

    I literally can’t find any major flaws with this girl so I’m surprised that people still manage to criticize her. She’s a good actress. I think the only movie I didn’t like her in was Xmen and I think that was mainly due to how poorly written her character was. People need to check out her indie films like Burning Plain, Poker House, The Beaver etc she’s very good in those.

    Then there’s her personality. I honestly thought she would be another one of those hollywood ditzy types like Blake Lively but she is so fun to watch. People think she’s trying too hard but her interviews have always been like that even when she was just starting out.

    her success is one of the most deserved out of all the young hollywood crowd. I can definitely say that I’m looking forward to her future projects. She reminds me a lot of a young Kate Winslet.

  38. lala says:

    She’s stunning!

    Does anybody remember that movie Al Pacino did with Ellen Barkin where he thought she was a killer?

    I saw it the other day and I think J LAW is Barkin’s spittin image…

  39. John says:

    I think this is one of the best interviews I’ve seen of her. She obviously knows how to make a first impression!

  40. amanda says:

    I love Jennifer Lawrence! She’s funny and self-deprecating and smart. She seems genuinely stunned by her own fame (as I imagine I would be, too, in her shoes), but thoroughly enjoying it at the same time. She’s not vapid. And in interviews, she doesn’t give the answers you would expect her to. She’s interesting. Plus, she really seems to understand and appreciate Katniss, and I know that’s important to fans of the book.

  41. Sarah says:

    Someone give me a gun. I don’t want to live in a world where people consider this girl unattractive.

  42. Ms Petit says:

    I hadn’t seen Winter’s Bone when she had been nominated for the Oscar and from seeing her red carpet photos- I thought she was pretty, but just another blond hollywood starlet who lucked into a good role. I’ve done a total 180 since then, I love that she’s pretty low-key, intelligent and not trying to attach herself to a hot young male actor to get some press. I hope that she does find a role outside of the “strong, young woman fighting against the odds” genre, but also hope that she doesn’t go the romcom route either…
