Jennifer Lawrence: Gluten-free diets are ‘the new cool eating disorder’

Jennifer Lawrence

We already discussed the first excerpts from Jennifer Lawrence’s November Vanity Fair cover feature. She gave an intense response to the photos that were hacked from her iPhone. Vanity Fair has released more of the interview. The full article is said to be 3000+ words long.

This part of the discussion covers JLaw’s “must haves” for any man that she dates. It’s a very frivolous discussion for the most part and an odd juxtaposition to the seriousness of the stolen photos. Then again, most of the interview happened before the Labor Day photo release. Let’s talk about the type of man that Jennifer Lawrence digs. Oh, and wait until you read what she has to say about gluten-free diets:

(1) A guy who digs reality tv: “I would just rather have somebody that has the same taste in reality TV. Shark Tank. Wait, Oh, Dance Moms–that is a good one!” she says. “O.K., maybe my favorite is Dance Moms, but I do love my Real Housewives. But there’s also–there’s Doomsday Preppers. Hoarders is O.K. I find it gets a little boring after a while, but it’s great. Basically, what I’m saying is all I need in a relationship is somebody to watch TV with me.”

(2) A guy who farts: She wants a partner who, “you know, isn’t afraid to fart in front of me [rather] than to have big, passionate love. I’d rather have just a peaceful time. [Those relationships] are deeper because you can be your true self with somebody, and somebody can be their true self with you. Isn’t boring so much better than passion?”

(3) A guy who really eats: As Kashner writes, “Jennifer is the anti-vegan, anti-gluten-free consumer, having just eaten a breakfast of spaghetti and meatballs before the interview.” She describes gluten-free as “the new cool eating disorder, the ‘basically I just don’t eat carbs.'”

(4) Maybe a guy like Larry David: “Do you like Curb Your Enthusiasm? Do you like Larry David? I’m in love with him, and I have been for a really long time. I worship Woody Allen, but I don’t feel it below the belt the way I do for Larry David.”

(5) Guys who don’t argue: “I don’t like fighting, and I find argumentative people the most annoying people on the planet. Like, why do you still want to be fighting? It’s just unattractive.”

[From Vanity Fair]

This was slightly painful to read. The part about farting was fine. Nearly every dude I’ve ever known has let them rip whenever he pleases. As long as it’s not in public, that’s okay. Jennifer grew up surrounded by brothers and likes to fart, so she wants a likeminded farter. Understandable.

Now onto the part about eating. This makes me believe that JLaw and Chris Martin do “pig out and work it off together. If this was anyone else, I’d be tempted to think JLaw was shading Goop’s gluten-free obsession. Not happening here. Jennifer has aways mainlined Doritos dust and disliked diets. God help us all if JLaw and Goop eventually end up sharing a meal together. The Mail said the two women recently enjoyed tea and scones in Goop’s garden, but that had to be a fake story. Jennifer would never eat scones. They’re dry and tasteless.

I really wish JLaw hadn’t said, “I worship Woody Allen.” Gurrrl, that made me cringe like when she broke out her rape scream for Alfonso Cuaron. NO.

Here’s a photo from the Vanity Fair editorial, which is very old-school glamour. You can see the rest of the pics here.

    Well as you said that part of the interview happened weeks before her statement about her photos that’s why the tone is completely different. But yeah i side eyed her at her comment about the eating disorder thing and cringed about the Woody Allen thing. Altough im sure she was talking about him as a director since one fo her favorite movies is ”Midnight in Paris”, it was still not a clever thing to say.

    • Nola says:

      How many times are we going to side eye the stuff she says but still give her a pass?
      It amazing how the media just brushes off the insentitive and offensive crap that comes out of her mouth.

      Why? Bc she makes faces and talks about food and farting?
      Chaz Bono, OCD and rape scream comments were all meet with a mere shrug.

      I get being a fan and making excuses for her but it feels at times that all of Hollywood is invested in her and therefore they just constantly give her a get out of jail free card.

      She won’t understand her ignorance if no one ever checks her on it.

      • ran says:

        Im not giving her pass for anything. I understand the need to call her out but it has gone past that. Every little thing she says is taken out of context and people create such a sh-tstorm around it. Its getting ridiculous.

        Again i understand calling people out on their bullsh-t but lets all calm down a bit.

      • wiffie says:

        On the farting thing- I’m 3 months pregnant and the gas is insane. Painful and constant. There is no holding or I would be miserable. Just last night, Mr wiffie and I are watching TV, and I’m ripping about one a minute, apologizing but not sorry, and realized how happy I am to be with a man that understands and says “baby, do what you gotta do”. I’ve been in love with him since I was 15, together for the last ten years, and married for five. Nothing beats a boring, strong love with farting and all. I’ll stand behind that.

      • MSat says:

        Exactly! Why does JLaw get to say all kinds of stupid stuff and everyone loves her, but people hate all over Anne Hathaway for… what, exactly?

        JLaw is overrated. I haven’t really seen her do anything incredible on screen yet. She’s 24 years old. How about if she earns the adulation? Hmm?

      • Bob Loblaw says:

        No one should “hate” her or Anne Hathaway, I don’t. I don’t understand why anyone takes what they say so seriously, they’re young, they’re expressing themselves, most of what they say is inoffensive. I don’t like Woody and have been off him for years but everyone is entitled to their own opinion. No one deserves to be “hated” over what they say in these fluff pieces in magazines. They’re young women, doing their thing, no body should be picking on them, no one should be bullying or “hating” them but people do it all the time. Anonymity on the Internet has unleashed a lot of mean people and they gross me out far more than anything Jennifer or Ann says or does.

    • Caveman says:

      She’s obviously taken one-too-many loads to the face and can no longer think straight…

  2. Em says:

    She needs to shut the f*ck up. Such a hypocrite.

    • Val says:

      Seriously, she is so immature and stupid.

      • FLORC says:

        Wow. How so? And that’s very hypocritical to call her immature when you’re the one namecalling.
        As they say here. She must have peed in your coffee this morning to get such a response.

      • Val says:

        Wow, that was aggressive. Sorry if I “peed in your coffee”, geez…

    • wiffie says:

      How is she a hypocrite? Is she actually gluten free? Hold in farts for a passionate lover? Despise reality TV and Larry David? What here is hypocritical? I don’t think you know what that word means…

      • Em says:

        Well, how about her being a “feminist” but body-shames and slut-shames CONSTANTLY, being desperate for male attention (practically all of her interviews are filled with her being “the cool girl”, “not like other obsessive, whiny girls” and “one of the guys”) and saying that her stolen photos were a sex crime (robbery and invasion of privacy at best) whilst worshipping Woody Allen and breaking out her “rape scream” at parties.

      • maybeiamcrazy says:

        Body-shaming accusation i understand but slut-shaming? When did that happen?

      • Artimis says:

        I’m with Wiffie – I don’t think it’s JLaw who needs to STFU…

        Jeez and seriously, Em, grow up!

      • Em says:

        She said she wanted guys to see her as sexy… but not slutty. She’s said that young sex sells in regard to Miley Cyrus, yet she poses for racy photoshoots herself. She’s a hypocrite.


        LOL. I have a right to my opinion. Methinks you’re the one who needs to grow up. No need to have a fit because I’m not stanning for your fave. Bye.

      • wiffie says:

        @em I believe the journalists are the ones who put her in the cool girl light. She doesn’t ever say how she’s not whiny and obsessive like other chicks. It’s others raving about her. And while those other things like rape scream, etc, may be found offensive by some, they aren’t hypocritical statements. I still don’t think you know what that word means. Ignorant, maybe, and doesn’t know when to edit herself, but not a hypocrite in that regard.

        PS there is a difference between sexy and slutty. I relate to wanting to be seen as sexy, but not slutty.

      • wiffie says:

        @em and feminism has nothing to do with body shaming. Feminism is by definition equal rights and gender equality. Not hating men, or being nice to ladies, or supporting fellow women, or body pride. It’s equality. And only equality. It somewhat covers shaming women for something a man gets a pass on, but I think you might as well look this up too while you check out hypocrisy in the dictionary.

      • K says:

        It is a sex crime in quite a lot of places, and should be in the States, too. It’s non-consensual pornography, and while it’s nasty for famous women, it can be life-destroying for ordinary ones with bitter exes. I wouldn’t wish it on anyone but if her words make it criminalised faster in the USA that’s a good thing. How is it not a sex crime when stolen images of her naked are being used without her consent for millions of men to wank to? It wasn’t disgustingly called The Fappening for nothing.

        As to the rest, the stuff about “one of the guys” is sad, sure, But she was raised as the youngest girl with two older brothers, now works in a deeply sexist industry, and is as much fed the cultural smeg as anyone else. I don’t expect stars to be smarter or more aware than the average, and it’s always a lovely surprise when you get the Emma Watsons of this world. But I don’t see why she gets a free pass from some and unmitigated hate from others. How about a middle path?

    • Lucinda says:

      Ok. First, I think this girl is a solid actress and I like her stuff, so yeah, I’m a fan.

      Here’s the thing. She’s young. She’s in a position where every stupid thing she says is blasted all over the internet. (Shailene Woodley is similar but her feminist comments do annoy me because she’s perpetuating a dangerous stereotype.) Jennifer strikes me as having a strong personality and is probably poo-pooed a lot by those in power because she’s young. Because of that, you tend to push a little harder.

      I don’t honestly think anything she has said is over-the-top offensive to anyone who isn’t looking to be offended (Except the rape scream comment. That was kind of cringe-worthy). And yeah, her comments are going to be all over the place because she’s what, 24? She’s not a hypocrite. She’s still figuring out who and what she is. I know what it’s like to be held to something you said at a much younger age. My mother was the master of that and it’s stupid because we all change and grow. Our perspective in our 20’s is much different than our 40’s or 60’s.

      If she’s still saying stuff like this at 34, then I’ll be offended because she should have grown up some. But as someone who is gf for serious medical issues, I couldn’t give two f***s about her comments because it doesn’t affect me one bit. Nor do her comments about farting. I think if she fires you up this much, you maybe need to just stop reading about her.

      • K. says:

        So telling young girls that of they don’t pig out and eat spaghetti and meatballs for breakfast and Dorito’s and pizza for dinner, they’re anorexic isn’t dangerous? Implying that having a balanced diet somehow makes you a fake, is not dangerous? Alrighty then. Teen girls do have eating disorders, but a lot of the time it’s because their idol keeps yapping away about how much junk food they eat and STILL they have “the perfect body”. That is such a debilitating message. At least Shailene isn’t afraid to be herself.

      • Lucinda says:

        That’s not what she’s saying in this interview. Perhaps she said it somewhere else? She’s saying going gluten free is the new fad that turns into an eating disorder. It’s ignorant but not dangerous. Society puts women in this difficult position of having to talk about how much food they eat while remaining very thin. Not a 20-something actress. She’s screwed if she talks about how much she watches what she eats and she’s screwed if she talks about not worrying about what she eats. To blame her for girls suffering eating disorders seems to minimize the actual problem imho.

  3. Sayrah says:

    Yeah, the woody Allen thing. Hmmm

    • Pat says:

      every actor will say that they love Allen, since every actor cast in Allen movies gets Academy Award attention. sad true

    • Rae says:

      It’s sad that her latest sound bite is about how stealing those photos is a sex crime (not saying she’s wrong), but a few months ago, she lauded Woody Allen in an interview…

    • Anony says:

      That really changed how I feel about her. I’m very dissapointed. I won’t be able to look at her the same way again. It’s too well known what he’s done. To praise him so highly? Disturbing.

  4. Rocketmerry says:

    Oh, good. So my food intollerance is cool now. Noted.
    Ps. If I could eat all the gluten I wanted all day long, I so would. I don’t get self punishments such as this trend.
    Pps. She does lack a bit of sensitivity when speaking, non? Just an impression of mine?

    • Dan says:

      I think she was talking about the people who only follow the trend without having any problem. I dont think it was meant to be some kind of attack.

      • Rocketmerry says:

        I get it, it’s why I said I don’t get self punishments like this one. But she alsio is a bit not-so-careful of how she expresses herself, I find.

      • Marianne says:

        Eaxctly. I know people who have not been diagnosed as having a gluten intolerance and yet only eat gluten free products because “its so much healthier”.

      • Tracy says:

        I also know a good number of people who self diagnosed and put themselves on a gluten free diet. It is a bit much.

        On the other hand I have a friend who was diagnosed and gluten free long before there were ever aisles and aisles of gluten free products at the grocery store. So I know there are people who suffer greatly if they eat gluten. It is the band wagon jumpers that I give an eye roll to.

      • sesame says:

        My personal opinion is different diets interact and work in different ways for people… it’s all about informing yourself as thoroughly as possible as to the nutrition side of xyz diet (whether paleo, gluten-free…) in complement to other aspects of yourself & lifestyle (exercise, genetic predisposition…).

        A bit of a blanket statement by JLaw to state that gluten-free diets are the new eating disorder, and whatever it implies…

      • Mixtape says:

        Yes, and even worse are those who follow the trend without any medical problem and then shame or guilt those who do not. It’s why poor JLaw has to sneak her pasta in at breakfast.

      • FLORC says:

        She’s not wrong. I know many people that have gluten allergies and those who abuse it to hide their eating disorders. Paleo too. Whatever mass accepted or trendy diet that gives you a way to refuse a meal without people speculating an ed.

      • Harryg says:

        But I’m happy that people who don’t have to eat gluten-free, do – that’s how I (who absolutely have to eat gluten-free) have more choices now. Five years ago it was hard to find good toast, now there’s everything! Love it.

      • don't kill me i'm french says:

        Thanks to the gluten-free trend because now i can find gluten-free food EASILY to my daughter who has many food allergies

    • Mia4S says:

      No a medically diagnosed food intolerance is not at all cool. Awful in fact.

      However the number of women (including several I know) who stopped eating gluten as the magic key to weight loss? Bizarre and misguided. No medical issues at all, just a fad diet. Once again this girl shows her lack of education in expressing herself, but yeah I know what she means.

      • Isadora says:

        This! As far as I know people who have a medically gluten intolerance have typical antibody blood test results. The other ones are mainly of the “but I feel better” variety. Of course they feel better, they ditch carbs, get slimmer and, first and foremost, they THINK it’s super healthy.

      • Erinn says:

        I know a lot of people who have done that as well, Mia. I get what she’s saying – it may have not been delicate, but it’s a sad truth. My husband was told to lay off gluten for a while because they thought he had an intolerance. He was miserable. He dropped about 35 pounds because he has a love for baked goods. In the end, he didn’t have the intolerance anyway, and the first thing he did was buy a foot long sub and cookies from subway.

      • LadyMTL says:

        Yeah, ITA about those who really *can’t* eat gluten (either intolerant or have celiac disease). The thing is that gluten-free is now such a big trend, it’s made it seem like everyone who doesn’t eat gluten is somehow just jumping on the bandwagon. I think that’s what JLaw meant.

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        Yep–isn’t that how Miley dropped all that weight, back in 2013? She went on a gluten free diet and was always pap’d going to those Pilates classes in her ‘yoga’ clothes……

      • lucy2 says:

        I agree, she’s not saying it very well, but she’s talking about those who do it as a fad rather than as a medical necessity.

      • sarahbelacqua says:

        I hate the trend too because it overshadows people with real problems, the part I love is that there are now more products available to people with problems because of it.

        Also just FYI sometimes intolerances and Celiac disease can be hard to diagnose, I had negative results but was also on a no Gluten diet and was told I would have to eat gluten again for about 3 months to get accurate results so it depends. Technically I would fall under the category of “feel better variety”, and I do feel better. If I eat gluten I am bloated, have terrible diarrhea, and it also makes me depressed and irritated. I also have been on the “diet” for 6 years and have not lost weight because I actually eat carbs, there are a ton of new alternatives because of the “Gf trend” so I can stay nice and chubby if I want to 🙂

      • sigh((s)) says:

        There are definitely people who are trendy with it, but it’s great for people like my mom, who is celiac, as she has many more food options.
        And gluten free doesn’t mean carb free. Potatoes, rice, corn meal–lots of carbs there.

      • Betty says:

        Yes, I agree. She’s not the most eloquent speaker but she’s not totally off on the “eating disorder” comment. There is a newly defined eating disorder called orthorexia, and I think she was alluding to this. Here’s the definition:

        I do know one person who actually does have Celiac and hates having to be Gluten free. I know others who appear to be obsessed with dieting who have jumped on the Gluten-free train.

      • Tammy says:

        Well if you practice the principles of clean eating with gluten free, then yes it is healthier. I don’t have Celiac disease but I also don’t eat a lot of gluten. I might have a gluten intolerance, I don’t know. I do know I am not loading a bunch of gluten into my diet to find out, though. Implying I have an eating disorder because I prefer to eat vegetables or fruits over cookies & cakes is stretching. Do I eat cookies and cake? Yes, occasionally, I had half of a pumpkin spice muffin today…it was delicious. But will I have one tomorrow? No.

        And just because someone is gluten free, it does not mean they cut out carbs. Quinoa pasta, anyone? Multigrain bread? Brown rice? Corn tortillas? Fruits, even?

    • Sisi says:

      it kinda is considered that way, just check out Pinterest. In the recipe section the keywords “gluten” or “protein” thrown around nonstop. Gluten free steak, gluten free vegetables, gluten free slices of apple, etc… It’s kinda sad really. Has nothing to do with actual serious food intolerances, it’s hype and marketing to get clicks & revenue and sadly it’s making people spam the word all over the place in real life.

      • Chris2 says:

        True Sisi
        You see ‘gluten free’ labels on items that wouldn’t know gluten if it bit them.
        I mentioned before a brand of water sold, straightfaced, as ‘fat free’.
        Ad agencies never miss a chance to exploit gullibity and the desire to be in the current groove.

      • wiffie says:

        Right?? Uh yes an apple and a steak is gluten free, because it’s meat and fruit! But people buy into it because it’s labeled that way. I only buy dairy free broccoli, but I can’t find its anywhere…. 😉

      • Dutch says:

        I’ve been trying to fight the “organic” fight for years: all food is carbon based, so it is therefore chemically organic. Get over yourselves.

    • Senna says:

      Ugh, I agree. She is super insensitive. Not everyone has an iron stomach, and food intolerances are a real thing. I mean, if people like her need people like me to describe in graphic detail what happens to our bodies when we eat a food we can’t handle, just so they’ll be convinced it’s “a real thing,” I’ll do it. F***k social niceties. I just think even Ms. ‘Farting is so Lolarious’ wouldn’t be cool with graphic descriptions of all-day diarrhea.

      • meh says:

        THANK YOU. I actually think it’s a myth that gluten free eating is a “fad”. Non-celiac gluten intolerance has become more and more common, and I think most people with it feel more comfortable saying “I feel better/healthier when I eat gf” than “I don’t fart continuously and spend 24 hours on the brink of crapping myself when I eat gf.”

        She is an ignorant airhead as far as I’m concerned.

      • Stephanie says:

        Exactly! I have tried doing a challenge 2x. I quit after 3 days and a week. I just don’t want to be sick and crazy. So no I don’t have a dx intolerance. That may make some people think I am doing it as a fad, but F it, I can’t make myself sick for 6 weeks to please others.

    • Amy says:

      I *so* hear you, Rocketmerry. When I found out my IBS was actually celiac disease, my initial tantrum over never getting to chew into a piece of sourdough bread or eat a glazed donut again was quickly followed by the realization that, “Oh, SHIT! Now I’m one of *those* people.” The kind you invite to dinner and they tell you what you’re going to serve…..

      On the other hand, it’s people like Goop who have made it possible for gluten-free products to proliferate, because if only people who needed them were buying them, there would be nowhere near the volume and variety.

    • ol cranky says:

      she’s not talking about people with Celiac disease, she’s talking about people who have turned gluten free into some sort of diet craze. While I’m glad the craze has made life easier for my friends and colleagues who do have celiac disease and an actual gluten intolerance, many of the people who harp on the need to be gluten free are blissfully ignorant. I recently ran into someone who is one of those goopy types about being vegan and gluten free, claiming to be allergic to gluten. . . quite ironically, seitan is a huge staple in her diet. Those are the people JLaw is poking at

      • Tammy says:

        Since no on probably knows what seitan is…it’s still gluten, Its a process where the flour is taken from the wheat and washing away the starch to leave the protein..which is actually healthier that wheat protein but still bad for you if you have celiac disease or a gluten intolerance.

      • taxi says:

        Blood testing for gluten intolerance is not very effective. The actual “real” test involves getting a tube-down-the-throat for a biopsy of the small intestine. That’s how my gluten-intolerance was diagnosed 22 years ago & it’s the same today. And yes, prior to the endoscopy, one must eat gluten for 2 weeks (not 3 months) for test accuracy.

        It annoys me to see people who don’t even know what gluten is or which grains/carbs have gluten to yammer on about their g-f eating practices. On the other hand, it’s much easier for those of us who medically need to be g-f to find substitutes, some of which are mostly acceptable. Do the g-f faddists abstain from regular soy sauce, beer, whiskeys & other grain-based liquors?

      • ol cranky says:

        @Tammy that was my point. This person claimed to be allergic to gluten yet freely and frequently indulged in seitan with no ill effects

        @taxi is there some legitimate clinical reason that make up and other things that aren’t eaten are now showing up with the gluten free label? I’ve known people with celiac and their issues were only with eating the stuff

    • Lucinda says:

      I’m gf too for medical reasons. That doesn’t make her wrong necessarily. She could have said it better but the sad truth is it IS the trendy new diet. Paleo is starting to trump GF. It was Atkins before GF. Low fat before that. Low salt before that. In ten years it will be something else. All of those diets have solid medical reasons behind them (except maybe Atkins. I question that one.) but they still became a fad as well.

      • taxi says:

        @ ol cranky – ingesting the stuff is the only issue I have with it. I laugh when I see “gluten-free” on shampoo, lotions etc. Maybe if lipstick had gluten, true celiacs would react if they inadvertently swallowed particles that got on food?
        People should be more worried about dyes in cosmetics than gluten.

    • Crazy Reader says:

      Rocketmerry: “Pps. She does lack a bit of sensitivity when speaking, non? Just an impression of mine?” – Yes, and she thinks we shouldn’t use the word “fat”. She is so hypocrite.

  5. cicilyC says:

    Gluten makes your d- fly off.

  6. Jaderu says:

    Dammit Jennifer.

    • Kiddo says:

      Right? She sounds like a twit, wrapped in an imbecile, covered by a bag of rocks, in this interview.

      • Jaderu says:

        I wonder if she will look back in 20 years at these interviews and cringe like we do. She’s at the top of my “just shut up and act” list.

      • littlestar says:

        She really is a twit. I’ve thought this about her for a while now. Her “coolness” has turned into arrogance, and her “just one of the boys” attitude strikes me as plain old ignorance – a child actor who is coddled and uneducated and doesn’t know shit about anything really.

      • jane16 says:

        Agree with all of you. She sounds ridiculous.

      • Charlie says:

        But why is everyone so surprised? She never sounded smart. She always sounded judgmental.
        After reading her quotes in yesterday’s post, I’m pretty sure that was drafted by her publicist.

      • Lucinda says:

        I think she has definitely lost some humility. Her early interviews after Winter’s Bone and before Hunger Games were much different. She was also being asked different questions.

    • Dani2 says:

      +1 This interview is disappointing as hell, she needs to really think before she speaks. What an actual tool. And I’m saying this as a fan of her acting.

    • Annie says:

      Lol but she’s never been that deep of a person. And I still believe that one day she’ll say something she is going to have to apologize for. Something seriously bad. Because she doesn’t think before she speaks.

    • bns says:

      She’s always been a dumbass. I expect nothing more from her.

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        After her comments about the photos, I had a small flicker of hope. I thought maybe I’ve been too tough on her. Uh, no. She’s so crude and thoughtless and immature and her schtick is getting way old.

        By the way, 18 happy years in a fart free relationship, standing up proud and grateful.

      • maybeiamcrazy says:

        GNAT where would you find someone like that? My boyfriends’ kindness wears thin in a month. I don’t mind farting but i am jealous!

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        Just lucky. He doesn’t burp in front of me, either. My first husband thought the “Dutch oven” was foreplay, so it was pretty high up on my list. Lol

      • maybeiamcrazy says:

        He sounds like a good catch. My most recent ex-boyfriend used to do burping contests with his friends right in front of ME. Chivalry is dead!

    so, releasing stolen nude pics is a sex crime, but molesting your daughter inspires feelings of worship. got it.

      The sex crime talk was weeks after the original interview but yeah i cringed. Also i dont think she meant worship him as a person and more like a director but whatever.

      • Misstee says:

        Well Jimmy Saville sort of fell off his Childhood Hero perch for me so yes I do think Celebs that may be talented shouldn’t get a pass for things they are doing outside of their ‘art’

        On the Gluten thing – its abit annoying that many people here claim that ONLY celaics and those with an antibody positive reaction have tolerance issues – I have IBS they ONLY thing that has stopped me having to go to the loo 10 times a day was when my GP asked me to stop gluten for a few months – god knows I love bread but every time I eat it it triggers IBS – which is NO picnic – imagine having a permanent tummy upset.

      • Algernon says:

        @ Misstee

        I know there are many people for whom going gluten free means easing gastrointestinal distress, or who have celiac’s disease, but honestly, for everyone one person I’ve met with a real reason to be gluten free, I’ve met five who are just doing it as a diet. I wish I was exaggerating, but I’m really not. It’s absolutely become a trendy fad diet a la Atkins/carb free, and it’s especially bad in Los Angeles, where practically the whole town is gluten free for no real reason beyond superficiality. I’ve come to the point where, when I’m in LA, I actually have a list of restaurants memorized that are *not* gluten free so I can go there, assured that people with a laundry list of pointless dietary restrictions won’t go with me and force me to sit through their Law and Order-like grilling of the waitstaff about every item on the menu.

        I think JLaw could have spoken better for sure. She could have said something like, “I know it really helps people with certain physical ailments, but the gluten free thing has gotten out of control and so many people are treating it like a fad diet.” But even though I squinted a little at her lack of tact (because for some people, gluten free really *does* help), I 100% understand her annoyance with it overall.

    • Kim1 says:

      Obviously many people don’t believe WA molested his daughter

    • kibbles says:

      Absolutely. Her comments made me do a complete 180 from the sympathy I had for her yesterday after reading her (publicist’s) statement from the interview. She seriously should have told VF to delete that comment in light of her nude photo scandal. She wants the public to sympathize with her as a victim of a sex crime but then she says she admires a man who married his stepdaughter and allegedly (and very likely) began a sexual relationship with his wife when she was still a minor and molested his other daughter. This just shows me that the statement may have expressed some of her anger, but that the majority of the statement was likely written by a much smarter publicist. JLaw is not the type of person who would connect the dots and relate her own crime to the issue of sex crimes against women at large. She clearly has no sympathy for Allen’s victims or doesn’t believe they are real victims (just as many people don’t believe that JLaw was really a victim of a sex crime). These are all varying degrees of ignorance and hypocrisy and it is sad that JLaw still doesn’t get it.

      • Gia says:

        Exactly. She’s not bright or insightful enough to put together a statement like that. This verbal diarrhea is the real JLaw.

  8. Dan says:

    She seems like a really simply girl lol. But yeah some of those are eye roll worthy. But I found and read her whole interview from some scans and its quite brilliant. There are even more great quotes about her photos and she’s calling out Perez Hilton. So im focusing on those and not at this part of the interview lol

    • whatsmyname? says:

      Yeah the whole interview is great. Loved her calling out Perez he is such a douche.

    And now to watch Jennifer get a pass for loving Woody Allen because, you know, she’s perfect and can do no wrong. Let the fawning commence.

    • Kit says:

      Too true.

    • Em says:

      lol oh please you know everyone is going to focus to that comment. They days people gave her a pass are over. And lets be real every actor would work with him without a second thought. I cant master the energy to hate everyone who would do that (cate blanchett, emma stone etc)

      • nicegirl says:

        Not EVERY actor is clamoring to work with Woody Allen.

      • Em says:

        @nicegirl lol yes they would. Its naive to think otherwise.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        A LOT of actors want to work with Allen. Dude’s disgusting but he’s made some amazing movies. Sorry if people don’t like it, but it’s the truth.

      Not here…. but over on NY Mag you cannot say ANYTHING bad about her, ever.

      • nicegirl says:

        TO Em: I work with actors, many many of them, every day, and several have spoken of their distaste of the pig Allen. I believe there are lots of folks who work as actors who would not work with him. I can be naive, though, it’s true.

    She has a great figure and a very pretty face. I think she is a good actress and agree that gluten free diets for people with no gluten sensitivity can be taken too far in the guise of “health,” but she will not gain any fans talking about her love for Woody Allen.

    • PennyLane says:

      It shows her narcissism – she wants another Oscar but has already done the ‘Weinstein’ route, so now she is hoping for the ‘Woody Allen’ pathway to a second academy award.

  15. Ninks says:

    I so agree with her about the gluten free diets. There are people who can’t handle gluten, it’s a condition call coeliac disease, and they’ve been medically diagnosed as being gluten intolerant. Until a couple of years ago, everybody ate gluten, and it was really difficult for people with coeliac disease to find food they could eat.

    Nowadays, when people say they can’t eat gluten, it’s usually a self-diagnosis or the word of a quack nutritionist. It’s a fad. When people go on gluten free diets, I’ve do doubt they do feel a benefit but it’s not because they’re cutting gluten out of their diet, it’s because they’re cutting out super-refined foods and carbs, and eating more wholegrains which are far better for you. Eat less refined food and you’ll be fine, unless you have an actual medical condition.

    • Isadora says:


    • Annie says:

      I think she’s referring to the Hollywood girls with the gluten commentary. Those girls will try every juice cleanse, crazy fad diet out there and it IS unhealthy to do extreme things to lose weight. It IS a form of disordered eating. I had a friend who drank nothing but this weird juice three times a day for a week. She had no energy, could not even use the stairs. I was all, why?

      Obviously if you have a medical issue and are careful about gluten, this isn’t directed at you. She knows very well who she’s referring to.

    • Khou says:

      I am actually happy that there are fad gluten free dieters. My dad has celiac, and the number of gluten free options at the store and at restaurants has exponentially increased because of the trend. It makes living with celiac so much easier.

      Also, when I was that young I didn’t care what I are either. Give it time and she will care more, if only for health reasons. It started when I had kids and I started cooking more and reducing the amount of processed food I ate. Then I started eating more veggies and less meat and carbs, not to lose weight but to promote a healthy lifestyle for my family. Don’t worry, my kids still get to eat pizza.

      • sigh((s)) says:

        Right? When I was in college I could eat Taco Hell for 2 meals a day for a week and feel totally fine. After 30? Not so much.

    • AntiSocialButterfly says:

      The realm of gluten disease/intolerance isn’t limited to diagnosed celiac disease or Ig-E mediated gluten allergy. There is intolerance that is verified by elimination diet, with the assistance an allergist or gastroenterologist ( or primary care md or dietician, you get the picture). I have asthma &allergies to a bunch of environmental things as well as stings. Was put on a black box inhaler for asthma after trying lower tier treatments. Also had ibs issues & heartburn. Got off gluten just on a kick, using a paleo/primal friendly app for weight loss. Lost about 7#, but more importantly, lost my gi symptoms & need for more risky inhaler, as demonstrated by routine spirometry testing in allergist office.

      I do understand that there are misinformed fad users, and that trend continues to slowly gain traction, but in general, people need to realize it isn’t a black & white issue. My allergist conceded he’s seeing more/similar cases whose symptoms are mitigated or resolved w/ trial elimination diet ( why not, it’s free and painless), and posits there are probably some yet unknown issues in the gut that gastroenterologists will decipher in coming years (since blood testing is negative).

      It’s unfortunate that Lawrence’s youthful speech inelegance makes her sound like such a complete dolt. With time, she will ( I hope) grow up and think before she bleches out more
      idiocy. She should start with a nutrition class, in which she will learn the ubiquity of carbohydrates in food- abundant in fruits and vegetables- grains aren’t the only source.

      *steps down from soapbox*

    • The Original G says:

      Actually, people have been eating gluten forever but unfortunately GLUTEN has changed. The variety that most people are ingesting in the West are have been hybridized and may wreaking havoc with some peoples guts.

      Historically, gluten has been ingested in sprouted or fermented breads (sourdough). Much of the stuff being passed off as bread these day is so processed that it’s hardly even food.

      We’re actually all guinea pigs. That doesn’t mean that some people aren’t using the gluten sensitive diets as a fad. But concerns about it are not simply a shallow Hollywood trope either.

      Oh, and who really cares what JLaw has to say about it? We’re really just interested in the gossip angle and whether these are digs at Paltrow, right?

    • Mel says:

      Calling BS. Do some research. Celiac is just one of several autoimmune diseases caused by gluten intolerance. Hashimotos is another — one which I recovered from by eliminating gluten. There are skin conditions, joint conditions, even type 1 diabetes can be triggered by it. Actually any autoimmune disease can be triggered by it. Who cares if it’s also a fad. Just about everyone would be better off without it. If interested in learning more, read Wheat Belly. Then at least you’d be somewhat more qualified to decide who is legitimately going gluten free and who’s not. As if anyone should be making that judgement…

      • Isadora says:

        This is medically incorrect. You cannot “heal” or “recover from” Hashimoto’s disease. It is however possible to have bouts of Hashimoto and then having some kind of “dormant” state of this disease.

        There is a link between celiac disease and Hashimoto’s, there are studies that show that the prevalence of celiac is higher in people suffering from Hashimoto’s. That’s because both are basically autoimmune diseases and people with one autoimmune disease are prone to have another too. Therefore people with Hashimoto’s also have a higher prevalence of fibromyalgia, endometriosis, rheumatism and stuff like that.

        The only book I’ve read that insists that going gluten free is important for ALL people suffering from Hashimoto’s is by Datis Kharrazian, who is NOT A DOCTOR. And even he can’t really explain why he makes the link. He argues that it’s kind of healthier anyway because you might have celiac etc. He also says people should eat a low-carb paleo diet because of insulin resistance – but a lot of people with Hashimoto’s have no problem whatsoever with their blood sugar levels!

        Oh, and by the way: wheat free is NOT gluten free. There are also example rye, barley, spelt, einkorn and emmer, and all of them contain gluten and have been eaten for over 10.000 years.

        People should stop eating crap like all this toast and cakes and stuff like that and try if they really react to a good, fresh, preferably organic diet with lots of veggies and good quality protein and also a bit of traditional sourdough rye bread or barley soup.

  16. murphy says:

        I don’t expect celebrities to be smarter than anyone else or more capable of making intelligent statements. I know they have a platform to create awareness. However, it doesn’t mean they are capable of using it properly. Especially when most actors are so young. Gluten is one of the reasons many people are experiencing thyroid issues and other health porblems. It’s in everything these days and it is making people sick. If someone doesn’t want to eat it for whatever reasons-why the hate? She’s a cute kid. And like most young kids, she has a lot to say without the life experience to understand what she’s saying yet.

      • AntiSocialButterfly says:

        Ha! Bravo/a!

      • Isadora says:

        @happymama: How do you know that gluten is responsible for thyroid issues? I looked into this issue but I have not found reliable scientific studies to back that statement. It’s like a ghost that’s haunting the health and alternative medicine community, but nobody explains why.

      Kristen Stewart is 24 too and she says dumb shit all the time too. Yet she’s an insufferable tw*t according to comments and Jennifer is young and adorable and joking around. It’s ridiculous! Same with the nude pictures! It was all “poor Jennifer!” meanwhile Kim K “sold hers, published them herself”, comments read; “who wants to look at her, we’re already seen it all”. I mean, the double standard is so. F*cking. Disgusting.

      • Em2 says:

        I’m 24 and say some dumb shit – but not to an audience. I love Jennifer, but God, she needs to take a minute to think about what she’s saying.

        I’ve never shaded Kim for her photos. Her body – her choice. I don’t need to look at it either way, so it doesn’t affect me.

        At the end of the day, I’d still rather hang out with Jennifer who just seems to be goofy and fun, than Kristen who always seems so pissed off – and I think that’s why Jenn gets more of a pass. Kristen just always seems so thankless and ‘above’ everything.

        I do agree with you. She is 24 in an industry that implies growing up fast, so this is the first thing that I don’t get. It does get tiresome to read her interviews, she does not seem to have had personal growth in the how many years she has been in the public eye?
        She lacks tact and I would presumed that by now, she would have been told “hon, you need to figure out how to voice your opinion without sounding ignorant.” Or at least pay someone to help her with that. If no one has told her this by now, you need to wonder about the people that surround her.
        The pictorial I found hilarious! She is talking about nude pics being leaked in the interview and these are the pictures that Vanity Fair decides to publish? For a weird second I thought the editor was making fun of her situation, but don’t quote me, just speculation.

    I agree with her on the gluten thing. It’s gotten so “trendy” and trivialized, I feel bad for the people who actually have gluten intolerance.

    This comes from somebody with legitimate ADHD and it runs in the family. People love to giggle like “ugh don’t wanna do this homework, I HAVE ADHD”. It makes me cringe.

    I have to eat a very low-sodium diet because of kidney issues, and I wouldn’t wish it on anybody. Granted, it’s healthier, but having to do it and choosing to do it at your own will are two different things.

    The Woody Allen comment is really not a good look sis. At all.

  21. Sam says:

    She’s not totally off base with the gluten thing. It HAS become trendy as of late, but that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. The more options there are for people who maybe need to avoid gluten, the better. And I’m not sure where she thinks gluten-free is about card avoidance. Gluten-free people do in fact get carbs, they just don’t get them from wheat.

    My husband has been doing a low-card (not no carb) diet for a while and frankly, he notes that it works well for him. I reduced my carbs and upped the non-saturated fats I take it and it hasn’t resulted in any gains in fat or other bad stuff – I feel pretty good.

    JLaw used to be cool because she gave off an air of not caring. But you can only do that so long before you start to get on people’s nerves. Maybe she needs a charity project.

    • Val says:

      I feel amazing when I cut out all carbs (I eat paleo), and I train sports every day. I’m not gluten or carb or whatever intolerant and I’m not on a diet to lose weight, it’s just a personal choice. I should be allowed to eat what I want without being judged by “Jennifer Lawrence” : not that it matters to me, but as a principle, especially if young girls listen to her. I respect other people’s choices to eat what they want, but stop bitching at me cos I don’t eat like you do. I am fine without cookies and cake, and I don’t feel like I’m missing out on fun.

      Sorry, ranted as a reply to you, Sam, glad the lower carb stuff is working for you too! 🙂

      • Sam says:

        My husband calls what he does Paleo, although I’m not sure how “correct” he actually is. He does no red meat (he does eat poultry and seafood). I don’t think Paleo is workable for me as a vegetarian. I also totally eliminated wheat but I do still consume rice (when I looked at Paleo sources, they seemed divided over whether rice is okay). I also do still include full-fat dairy, but that is because I’ve never noticed it causing an issue for me. It basically meant upping my intake of veggies, nuts and fat sources like avocados.

      • Val says:

        Paleo does include red meat, but you don’t *have to* eat it… I personally like beef and I eat it maybe once a week, and that’s fine for me. I also eat poultry and fish sometimes. Otherwise like you I mostly just have alot of nuts and veg and avocado (yum). Ah, and eggs though.
        I think as long as you find what works for you and makes you feel good that’s all that matters. My flatmate just baked banana bread and I couldn’t resist having some, and now it feels like a rock in my stomach, haha. 🙁
        I eliminated dairy for 6 months and it did nothing for me, so I also consume full fat dairy now (paleo is also divided about that).

    • AntiSocialButterfly says:

      Agree with the gluten free products- many are made from rice and are actually higher in carbohydrate than their wheat counterparts.

  22. 'P'enny says:

    I think she’s after a best friend, not a lover.

  23. Frida_K says:

    She mentioned on one of the talk shows that she had been having some pretty severe bowel trouble. I can’t remember exactly what, but it sounded pretty vile. That being so, and if it is continuing, she might be a candidate for an elimination diet.

    I think people in the community here already know/remember, but I’m in school for Chinese medicine at present. When I started, I did a clinical observation and there certainly were a lot of people with “leaky gut.” The older interns–at that point about to graduate–told me that it’s getting more and more common, and that a lot of doctors pooh-pooh the syndrome and treat patients like they’re crazy when they bring up the subject. Hence, the end up with acupuncturists because we see this as a valid issue and treat it seriously. Cut to two years later, and it seems like even the truly mainstream MDs are getting on the bandwagon and admitting that leaky gut exists. (And then they go do a weekend seminar, after which they call themselves “trained in acupuncture” but that’s another rant).

    In any case, Jennifer probably has access to as much organic and non-GMO food as she wishes. In addition, she probably has access to great medical care in general. People who can’t say the same–especially if they can only afford cheap, packaged food, do tend to have GI problems; so do people who have been over-prescribed antibiotics. Going gluten, dairy, nut, soy, and added sugar free is not fun but some people, unless they want to end up with colostomy bags, have to do just that.

    It’s a shame that someone with as many resources as Jennifer Lawrence would be so dismissive and myopic.

    • Isadora says:

      “Leaky gut” is not a medically accepted diagnosis, it’s a thing that is just very, very popular in alternative medicine circles.

      And we don’t know what her GI problems were, as well as we don’t know if she herself HAS in fact a diagnosis. So maybe it was just a stomach bug, who knows, and then no elimination diet will help.

      • Sam says:

        Eh, it wasn’t alternative medicine that first suggested it back in the 1980s. Google Daniel Hollander and the UCLA research project that first suggested leaky gut as a precipitator to Chron’s disease. You might also be interested in Alessio Fasano’s work on proteins in the intestinal lining that suggests that disruptions in the protein balance may weaken the intestinal linking and cause leakage.

        Is that evidence that leaky gut itself is real and does everything people claim it does? No – but it is evidence that suggests that the people writing it off a quakery aren’t right either.

      • Isadora says:

        I agree that people with “leaky gut” symptoms are definitely having some problems in the GI area. I’m not even writing it off as quakery, but I still want to be very cautious with the term and whatever follows. The problem is not exactly the theory itself but the way people handle it. Some write about leaky gut like it’s based on sound evidence and then proceed to tell people what to do about it – like going gluten free, eating kimchi, doing enemas etc. But even if we do accept the leaky gut theory, we still don’t really know what to do about it. It’s more theories based on a shaky fundament.

        But while eating kimchi hardly hurts anyone, claiming that various diseases and health problems are because of leaky gut can be dangerous. Let’s take JLaw as example and let’s say – hypothetically – she had a severe stomach bug that caused her diarrhea. I bet there are many, many alternative doctors that take the leaky gut explanation and put her on an elimination diet, like Frida_K explained. In the meanwhile the stomach bug remains untreated or she weakens her body further by totally changing her eating habits (a lot of people undereat at first when they do elimination diets because many food groups are forbidden and they don’t know about alternatives yet). Not good.

        That’s why I always point out that leaky gut is essentially a medical theory – it might be true, it might not. But we shouldn’t pretend it’s indisputable.

    • Val says:

      Yeah you’re only as informed as you want to be, at the end of the day. I just think it’s unfortunate that she’s basically against healthy eating and telling susceptible teenagers that they should sneer at it. If anything we should all be educating ourselves on how to eat better, and force the food companies to offer better products.

    • Frida_K says:


      I’m not sure where I stand on the “leaky gut” believer scale but I will say this much: we get people in clinic whose doctors have sent them to surgeons. The surgeons cut them up. The patients are in constant pain. The surgeons and the MDs write the patients off. They come to us in desperation.

      And I’m talking people who have had their gallbladder removed, sections of the intestines removed, the colon removed. They are just gutted by their surgeon. And then, when there’s nothing left to take and the person is still in pain, then they come to us. I have only been in school for two years for TCM and it’s horrifying. I didn’t know this existed before I started clinic.

      I don’t yet know if it “really exists” but you are right–it’s not quackery.


      It’s not a “medically accepted diagnosis” for traditional, hidebound MDs. However, my integrative medicine physician (I do, though very rarely, go to a Western doctor) uses the term as more of a shorthand when speaking with patients. Chinese physicians will speak about Spleen dysfunction or other like. We don’t diagnose “leaky gut” in quite those terms. It’s a way to speak the language that patients can understand.

      What it is, though, is clearly something, and something that makes patients suffer terribly.

      • Sam says:

        I agree that it’s not full quakery. I’ve seem claims that leaky gut can be the cause of all sorts of medical issues, and I think that is what might drive people to refer to it as quakery. However, the people who dismiss it outright are probably not totally correct either. I know so many people who are affected by intestinal issues (especially Chron’s Disease) and regular doctors seem to be at an absolute loss about how to treat them. Being so dismissive of something that could help find them some relief strikes me as awfully cruel on some level.

      • AntiSocialButterfly says:

        I agree that western medicine isn’t perfect… it is only in recent years that the idea of white blood cells/marrow/spleen were seen as the primary immunologic mechanism, to admitting it is the (intestinal) microflora barrier. An institution doesn’t change its standards easily or with haste.

      • Isadora says:

        @Frida_K: I always found “patient language” a bit confusing. Maybe patients need this, I don’t know. Personally I always preferred if people used the proper terms with me. *shrug*

        I’m not even on a crusade for traditional, academic medicine. God knows that there are way too many problems with that – the afore mentioned cutting people open to just “look” what’s wrong for example, the abundance of antibiotics even if you don’t need them (if you have the flu for example), the ignorance about mutual reactions when you take various medicine together, the complete unwillingness to look into nutrition and micronutrient deficiencies for a lot of diseases… I could go on forever. 😉

        BUT I’m also wary of a lot of alternative approaches because (as I mentioned above) it can be very dangerous to overlook something when you go with unproven but at the moment very popular stuff. Therefore I’m always a friend of getting a traditional diagnosis (if possible) and then look into a sensible alternative treatment afterwards.

        Of course if people feel a bit gassy and bloated from time to time it hardly hurts if they eat kimchi (except if they are histamine intolerant) and take probiotics (except if they are lactose intolerant and the probiotics contains it). You see, not that easy. 😉

        But Sam mentioned Crohn’s and I think that’s a very good use for alternative medicine because those people already have a concrete (traditional) diagnosis, but you can’t heal it and traditional treatment is (imho) highly unsatisfactory because cortisone and pain medication only treat the symptoms with a lot of side effects. And extensive surgery is a huge step, personally I would try everything else before that of course. So yes, it’s great that alternative medicine can help them! I still think it’s important to speak clearly and say “that’s not medically proven, but you might try XY”.

  24. Alex says:

    Sensitive as always… Add to that Jesse Eisenberg’s “awesome” and “quirky” OCD, reasons why she calls Her cat Chaz Bono, hating on shy People for being shy, rape screams, worshipping (???) Woody Allen and many more. But hey, it’s okay because she’s Young and “goofy”!!!

    • An says:

      I know, right?! It’s so perplexing.

      “Hey, we like this girl, of course she says dumb sh*t, she’s YOUNG! ”

      Errr… No, she is 24 and a grown ass woman. She can’t just say whatever she wants and play it off because she’s “goofing around”.

      • Veronica says:

        Eh, I would argue 24 is still on the younger side. People are still growing up at that point. This doesn’t excuse the commentary, just makes the origin more understandable. I would hope that if she happens to retread this interview in the future that she acknowledges that unfortunate juxtapositioning of her comments on Allen with her pic scandal. The next few years are going to be very defining for her. Getting famous at 19 doesn’t leave a lot of room for growing up with much error. For her sake, I hope she can overcome it.

    • Em says:

      Too true.

    • Dan says:

      I dont understand people bringing stuff from years ago again and again. The Jesse Eisenberg thing happened 4 years ago. She even apologized. Let it go already.

    • AlexandriaTheGreat says:

      No it’s because she’s young WHITE, PRETTY, and goofy–don’t forget those 2 crucial elements. She’s the personification of the “Cool Girl” trope and is allowed to get away with a lot because of it.

      • sigh((s)) says:

        She should’ve been Amy in Gone Girl. She’s the epitome of “cool girl”, isn’t she?

  25. nicegirl says:

    “I worship Woody Allen” is all I need to read. No more clicks from me.

  26. Talie says:

    I guess because Gone Girl is back in the zeitgeist I’m saying this… but MY GOD, if she doesn’t represent the Cool Girl to a friggin’ T!

    I actually think her real persona is quite serious and not so humorous based on some of her comments when she lets the mask slip.

  27. Lv says:

    Her body is so photo shopped! I would be eating spaghetti and meatball too if I could magically get a Brazilian model’s legs every time someone photographed me.

    • tc says:

      She’s also 24. Let’s see her eat like that at 34 or 44 and see what happens.

      I suspect at those ages she will have gained a new sympathy for the many women who struggle to conform with society’s impossible beauty standards. But by then everyone will have moved on to some new 20-something “cool girl” starlet.

    • Dutch says:

      Everybody in the magazines get ‘shopped, however she’s not an average 24 year old wage slave who sits at a computer eight hours a day and loafs on the sofa at night. She’s got trainers and works out more than she admits. She wears paint and carefully applied latex as a costume in the X-Men movies, so being in good shape is her job.

  28. Div says:

    While I do think this is Jen’s personality, I feel like she turns it up by 100 and exaggerates to fit the “cool girl” persona so aptly described by the author of Gone Girl. Also, cringe on Woody Allen comment. Something nice: she looks beautiful in the photos

  29. BlueeJay says:

    Ugh. My husband and daughter are both diagnosed as Celiac disease and this statement makes me cringe. I really don’t think that after people have written books and spent years looking into wheat and it’s effects on the body that JLaw is a expert on this issue and shoud just keep her mouth shut, Added to her statement that if you don’t send nude pictures of yourself your boyfriend will look at porn (obviously she hasn’t learned and will still be sending pictures of herself to Chris) I have lost all respect for her. Gwen must be laughing herself silly right now. Chris has a winner all right!

  30. Artemis says:

    Her body is ON flippin’ point! Clearly she has great genes or she works out like mad for events and watches her diet more because she seems like she has broke student eating habits + watching TV all the time in her spare time. That does not make a great body.

    As for her quotes:

    1) It’s classic Jlaw pretending she’s harmless and ditzy when it’s known she loves to read classic books for example. I believe she watches a lot of TV but you would not hear her say anything that would suggest she’s interested in intellectual things. Her image is goofy, not bookworm.

    2) Extremes are not my cup of tea but good for her if that what’s she looks for. This might explain Martin! Can’t get any more dull than him unless you’re dating a damp mop.

    3) Wasn’t Martin a dedicated vegetarian not too long ago? Still is maybe? Anyway, why do people care what other people put in their mouth? Also, you can eat carbs when gluten-free. I just love it when people talk about stuff they haven’t even researched in its most basic form. Reminds me when people say vegans only eat veg. I’ve seen some overweight vegans as you can eat just as much crap as you can on a ‘normal’ diet. People always find a way because a lot of them miss the processed foods or are used to them so they find a substitute.

    4) Sex crime and Woody Allen in one interview and I’m still disappointed in her choices. J-Lawd.

    5) I can’t imagine nobody arguing with her because she runs of the mouth and her insensitive remarks are never called out, or they are but on a small-scale.

    • Jenna says:

      My guess on how she can have the “I hate diets/exercising” attitude and still look so good is that a) she’s still young, but b) she often HAS to follow a strict diet/exercise regime for a job. She was definitely put on a diet for Hunger Games, for example (from what I read, it was probably a fairly reasonable diet, but still, NOT doritos and pizza). So although she “hates” to diet or workout, she’s still often ON a diet, whether she cares to acknowledge that or not. I really feel her comments would read better as “I can follow a diet if I have to, but when I don’t have a part that requires a specific physique, I eat what I want, and that includes junk food!”.

      I also doubt she is really pigging out on nothing but junk when she is “off duty”. I imagine it’s probably more like she eats healthy stuff but doesn’t deprive herself if she’s craving junk. It seems to me the press really likes to play up the “I LOVE JUNK FOOD” angle so I do start to wonder just how much these quotes get manipulated or parsed to make her sound like a junk food fiend when she could really just be someone who eats a wide range of foods, including junk.

  31. Jane says:

    She tries too hard to come across as one of the cool girls that isn’t difficult for the male sensitivies but it’s so over the top it makes her look dumb.

  32. Someonestolemyname says:

    Oh shite is she turning GOOP preachy already?

    JLAW perplexed me with her comment that your boyfriend will just look at Porn if you aren’t there. I still don’t like the comment and think it’s demeaning to herself to think that way.

    I like her as an actress but I hope she doesn’t start getting too preachy.

    • kibbles says:

      Chris Martin certainly has a specific type, doesn’t he? Perhaps Goop and JLaw share more than just blonde hair and an Oscar win. If Martin was attracted to Goop’s personality, what does it say about JLaw? Both women might have differing views when it comes to dieting, but both have some similarities in their personalities, no? Both can be annoying, rude, and preachy. Both want to come off as cool in their different ways. Maybe JLaw is not so different from Martin’s ex after all.

      • Someonestolemyname says:

        I think she’s a fine actress and a beautiful woman ,but her personality sometimes seems like it can get annoying. She seems to try too hard at times.

  33. Sara says:

    it does sounds like an advertisement for the male fanbase. but reading about her having a couple of brothers could mean that she is more stereotypical bro like than “girly”.

    its almost funny how fast the perception of people of a celeb can change, all in a matter of hours, based on the same interview.

    she was applauded here for her statement on the pictures and now she comes out as a worshipper of a guy who married his step daughter and who is accused of molesting another child.

    that also goes back to the thread yesterday about the father from 7th Heaven. that guy will be thrown under the bus. Allen is celebrated. that a very situational set of values.

    i cut Jennifer some slack, she never sold herself as a big feminist or as a person who is known to say clever things. i was way more disappointed (still am) by Natalie Portman signing a letter supporting Roman Polanski. i hope Emma Watson gets offered a role by Allen and chooses not to work with him.

  34. OhDear says:

    I see where she’s coming from with the gluten free comments – she’s saying that there are people who follow a gluten-free diet solely to lose weight, not because they have health issues that require a gluten-free diet. That being said, the comments combined with the “she’s anti-vegan and anti-gluten free! She ate spaghetti and meatballs before the interview!” reeks of “real woman, not like those other girls” cool-girl-ness.

    • CharmmyKitty says:

      Exactly this! Turns me totally off.

    • Celia says:

      To be fair, that wasn’t really her quote but what the journalist wrote. Especially considering the end of the article, I think Vanity Fair was just trying to throw some shade on Paltrow.

  35. Mitch Buchanan Rocks! says:

    If she only knew that Woody Allen doesn’t have a single gluten in his body….

  36. whatsmyname? says:

    I mean this is VF picking stuff that she said and applying it to what she wants in a boyfriend when some of these things are not in that context. Kind of seemed like they are trying to bait some Gwenyth/Chris drama into it. The rest of the interview is great and she talks further about the pics. When reading the whole thing it doesn’t come off bad unlike reading this bits together (minus the Woody things because giiiiiiiiiiiiirl stop don’t care how much you like him as a comedian stfu about it)

  37. Jessica says:

    I love Woody Allen’s work, he’s probably my favourite living director. Doesn’t mean I approve of anything untoward he’s done.

    I love Dickens too, and he was monstrous to his wife. TS Eliot was a frightful anti-semite, but I cherish The Waste Land, and also the work of fellow anti-semites Wagner and Degas. HP Lovecraft is one of my favourite authors, and he had some hideous views on…well just about everything. I consider Charlie Chaplin a genius and re-watch his films yearly, not thinking about his teenage brides. Chuck Berry and Elvis are on my iPod despite their penchant for underage girls (actually a staggering number of the artists on my iPod probably fall into that category). Let’s not get into my favourite painters, one of them is even rumoured to have been a serial killer, and the others were certainly abusive and cruel, if not far worse than that. And we haven’t even touched on philosophers, scientists and political figures.

    A large portion of artists and great thinkers now and throughout history have been terrible, hideous people. If we stopped looking at, watching, reading their works and enjoying them, learning from them, being inspired by them, we wouldn’t have much of a creative or intellectual legacy left in the world.

    • ran says:

      1+ I know its sometimes difficult to seperate the work from the artist but sometimes you just have to do it otherwise you wont be able to enjoy anything and might miss some really great pieces of art. Jlaw is an actor. Of course she’s gonna love Woody Allen’s work but it would be better if she didnt talk about it lol

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      + 2 to everything. You said it so perfectly.

    • Leonor says:

      +1000 fantastic respost. Many artist in the past like nowadays were terrible in private

    • FingerBinger says:

      @Jessica I agree with you. It is possible to separate the art from the artist. You can appreciate their work and not get caught up in what a terrible human being they were or are. Klaus Kinski is one of my favorite actors of all time ,but he was horrible person ,yet I can still appreciate his films.

      • Chris says:

        Interesting you should mention Klaus Kinski. I recently bought the Fitzcarraldo DVD and before I watched it I discovered that Kinski had allegedly molested his daughters. So I agonized over whether I should watch it or just throw it in the bin. In the end I watched it because I thought about separating the art from the artist. Plus Kinski isn’t the only artist who worked on the film.

    • Sam says:

      This is true. I do, however, feel like Woody Allen has become so charged that people should take care to note that “I’m a fan of Woody Allen’s films.” Saying “I worship Woody Allen” sounds…worse, somehow. It sounds like she likes him as a person, which is troubling. If she had been slightly clearer, I think people would understand more.

    • An says:

      There’s a huge difference in the way artists were represented in 1814 (to as late as the 80’s) and 2014. There was no internet or celebrity culture. The artist’s personality lay in their work and people had no way of knowing about their private lives. The human mentality was different. Spousal abuse etc. was blindly accepted. There is just NO way you can compare that to modern day technology and the way that people are conscious of the world now. No way.

      • K says:

        I HATE that narrative because it’s SUCH a cop out! We don’t live in 1734 or the 1950’s anymore. I would think that people are cultured enough nowadays to know that just because he’s an artist doesn’t mean it’s possibly to overlook him being a disgusting, perverted (Soon-Yi anyone?) criminal. It’s just not an option in 2014.

      • perplexed says:

        I see An’s point. Also, imo, a lot of modern day artists benefit from the way publicity about them is presented. I’m not sure whether certain artists in the modern age would be as appreciated, if not for PR teams. Would I have noticed a particular actor’s or director’s talent if a certain PR narrative hadn’t been constructed around them? (i.e “Actor X” or “Director X” is “one of the greatest of his or her generation.” That comes up a lot in certain magazines.)

    • Sofia says:

      When you’re considering artists from the past it’s easier to let that go. Their creations got bigger than themselves and most of the times we have no idea about their personal lives. But it makes me uncomfortable when not even the context makes their behavior acceptable, it makes me question the art itself, I just can’t help it. It’s like finding that a great scientist who discovered something important was abusive towards his family, I can appreciate the impact of his discoveries but I cannot celebrate him. Good, decent human beings can have great minds, but that by itself doesn’t make them worthy of my applause. But there’s an inner conflict here, I’m aware…
      Does this make sense? I’m sorry if sounds that I’m ranting ^_^

      • Em says:

        Makes great sense.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        If you view every piece of art through the emotional connection you have with the artist that created it then yeah, you’re gonna have that problem. It’ll become personal.

        I think there’s a difference between respecting and appreciating a gifted person’s work or achievements and the outright beatification of said gifted person.
        But this is easier for me because there is no actor, scientist, author, or artist that I revere. My role models and the inspiration in my life is derived from my friends and family, whom I know are wonderful people.

      • Sofia says:

        When you’re really interested in the creation, usually there’s curiosity about the creator. It doesn’t even mean there’s any reverence. So yes, having an emotional connection trough the art with the artist I think is pretty normal. It has nothing to do with role models. I don’t see how bringing your family up adds to the discussion. We are talking about how we perceive an artist’s value when his personal conduct is questionable.

      • maybeiamcrazy says:

        Artists were never meant to be rolemodels. It is hard to seperate a person from their artistic work in this age but we should somehow find a way. I am a music critic and i was sent to a tour for reviewing some art galeries for another job. I have met horrible people who made divine paintings. By horrible i mean racist, wife beater etc. But i still gave them good review because we have to seperate these two things. It is hard but it is manageable. You do not have to watch Wood Allen movies, none of us are but does it negate the fact that he is a true artist?

    • Nic says:

      So do you support Chris Browm too? Or does he not get a pass?

      • sigh((s)) says:

        I’m just playing devil’s advocate here…what about Adrian Peterson or Ray Rice? They are also talented, just not in an artistic sphere. Should we have no qualms about watching athletes play, knowing their criminal acts?

        I’m torn, because I’m an artist, am wholly against censorship, and know that many artists have demons. That said, I also don’t want to actively support the livelihood of someone I know to be an abuser or pedophile.

        I also think Woody Allen is crap. As an artist. And a person.

      • maybeiamcrazy says:

        But OP didn’t say anything about supporting these artists just that a person can like their work regardless of their personal life. I love Woddy Allen movies and i thought the movie “The Pianist” was a masterpiece. That does not mean i condone their behaviour at all. Just that we can’t ignore or deny people’s artistic or any other kind talent because of they are shitty people.

      • Artemis says:

        That’s what I’m wondering in these cases tbh. I’m not going to be a hypocrite, I do read and watch people’s work, even people who’ve done horrible things. But I don’t spend my money on them and I don’t praise them. Also, context is important.

        It’s easier to separate their work from their personal life for us as we as gossip consumers have no physical connection to Woody Allen but actors who praise Allen have a good chance to work with him personally. I have no doubt in my mind that JLaw would want to work with him if the opportunity presented itself just like any actor who doesn’t even want to acknowledge the bad stuff. That to me is the reason why actors CANNOT separate the artist from his/her personal life. They’re inevitably intertwined.

        Hollywood is a very dirty place and those actors know it but from the moment it gets too close for comfort, they deflect or ignore a potential abuser. It’s sick really. But here you have Jlaw talking about sex crimes and making sense until….a famous great director who can get you an Oscar nom is mentioned and then we forget about what it’s like to be a (potential) victim. I can’t….

      • KellyBee says:


        If your paying money to see his movies then you are supporting them because the end of the day that’s all that matters in this business.

      • maybeiamcrazy says:

        I did not buy any of Wood Allen’s recent movies. I only watched Blue Jasmine because a friend of mine already rented it and my love for Cate Blanchett is too much. I never paid anything to Roman Polanski. I can appreciate their movies and how well constructed they are from afar though. We don’t have to watch their movies. Nobody forcefully puts someone to Woody Allen marathon. But if the movie is good enough, shouldn’t it be awarded by institutions? Like i said we don’t have to like any artist, but we can’t deny their talent.

    • angela says:

      I stopped watching Allen movies some time ago, because I began seeing them as amoral bougie self-indulgent fluff, and quite a bit misogynistic. Less so Zelig, maybe, or Crimes and Misdemeanors. And I grew up with them. I can appreciate their intelligence, but dang they’re hollow. Allen’s personal history and the fact that he’s omnipresent in his movies, it’s just intolerable to re-watch them.

  38. Megan says:

    I’m on a gluten-free kick right now because wheat has made me sick and I’m trying to heal my gut. Other than that, I wouldn’t wish a gluten free diet on anyone. It kinda sucks and is super expensive.

    However, I will say that it is easy to say you hate diets when you are young and still have a crazy metabolism. I used to eat anything I wanted and was tiny. It wasn’t until I was nearing 30 that it all went south. Just you wait JLaw, gravity is coming for you.

    • AntiSocialButterfly says:

      LOL to your second paragraph, it is so true!

    • jwoolman says:

      Gluten free is expensive only if you try to match the prepared gluten foods you used to eat. Try simplifying with plain foods that happen to be GF and your food bill should go way down. Fruits, veggies, all varieties of beans, rice, corn, millet, buckwheat groats, in addition to the pricier quinoa that has reached fad proportions but it really is good once in a while. You might look for “food allergies” plus “rotation diet” to get an idea of the possibilities for really simple meals often involving only one or two foods, at least that’s how I learned about it decades ago. Anyway, we pay high prices for convenience and complex combinations, but simplifying is cheaper.

      Often you can find ways to enjoy the sandwich fillings that don’t require a bread-like carrier, either just eating plain or combining with raw veggies (think salad). But corn taco shells and large chips are handy for sandwiches. They have long shelf lives (much longer than on the package) and i stock up when they’re on sale. You also can make your own crackers easily with anything resembling flour (including rolled oats whizzed in a blender, if you can tolerate oats). Just add water to make a doughy paste, salt and oil are optional, pull off golf ball size pieces and flatten between your hands or a gadget like a tortilla iron if you have one. Then bake in an oven or in a pan etc until they suit you. Look for really simple flatbread recipes online that can be made with anything also (not just expensive flours). Likewise pancakes and waffles can be made with anything. But you don’t need a cracker or bread for every meal- apples and carrots and celery and even lettuce leaf rollups are great with peanut butter or any nut/seed butter, for instance. Or just treat yourself to a spoonful. Or eat whole peanuts, nuts, seeds. Avocados can be eaten straight from the shell with a spoon.

  39. kri says:

    Oooh-carb shots fired!! That is a gauntlet thrown down if ever I saw one. I wondered why GOOP kept on jawing about eating fries and drinking wiine on her b-day like it was some kind of sin. I respect that people have food preferences/different lifestyles, etc. But it’s what works for you that counts. As for Jlaw I am no fan. Her talent is great, but off screen she is annoying. And to worship Woody Allen..NO. That being said, I’d rather her than G any day.

  40. Algernon says:

    “Isn’t boring so much better than passion?”

    Says Woman-Child who has clearly not yet experienced true passion.

    She’s 24, which is not so young anymore, as many people have stated, she’s old enough to start showing some tact, but her recent comments re: sex and relationships make me think she is still very inexperienced, overall. She just doesn’t seem worldly to me. “If they’re not looking at you, they’re looking at porn.” Gurl, get real. They’re looking at you ***and*** porn. And the passion/boring thing, I get not wanting a super dramatic person, because I’m low-key and relatively low-maintenance and don’t like a dramatic guy, either, but yes, you want some passion in your relationship. That’s what can sustain you through the rough patches. I’ve found I’ve worked a lot harder in relationships and been a much more engaged, caring partner when good sex is on the line.

    With my guy now, who travels a lot and is often gone for weeks at a time, knowing we’ll be having world-burning sex as soon as he comes through the door is what helps me keep it together while he’s away. Skype, texting, email, it’s not that hard to stay in touch and I “see” him on a regular basis when he’s gone, but the sex? Not replaceable, no substitutes. I love him, and I love his companionship, but I’ve found that there are many ways to have fulfilling, enriching relationships. The thing he offers me is that *plus* amazing sex, which is much harder to come by (ba dum ching). I like JLaw, but I’m beginning to fear she’s frozen at 20.

  41. Sarah says:

    Bedhead, I think we all know what the real problem is here, right? What kind of GD scones have you been eating?! Dry? What?! A good scone is made with both heavy cream, AND butter. I really think that this needs to be remedied.

  42. bns says:

    I love it when celebrities that I can’t stand justify my dislike with their stupidity. She’s overrated and she has never been charming.

    • Someonestolemyname says:

      I don’t find herr charming either.
      I found her finger bird flipping at the Academy Awards immature and non respectful.

      She’s a good actress though, but I’m beginning to think Chris Martin definately has a type.

  43. Cheryl says:

    I guess she’s trying hard to be relatable. Letting us know she eye-rolls any trendy food awareness and this is an example of stupid shit you say when you are young if you are prone to that.
    Confession: I stopped eating wheat-based foods for a couple days just as a private experiment and I noticed the benefits. So, it’s possible all that gluten in its wheaty bready glory isn’t doing any of us good in comparison to other whole foods.
    The wA stuff. If someone’s daughter made this accusation publicly I think it is obnoxious to be willfully ignorant. Shudder. wA is dead to me.

    • Artemis says:

      I don’t think I’m gluten-intolerant but when I was poor, I was living on beans and rice basically. Nothing processed and boy was I in for a shock when I started eating bread, pizza etc again. Every day I noticed I got up with a painful stomach. I never have that when I’m eating clean, ever. So I don’t think it’s all that great either. I can’t help eating it though, stupid delicious bread 🙂

      Oh and I know somebody with Celiac and she eats bread, she doesn’t care. She does have to deal with the painful consequences though but ‘life’s too short’.

  44. shayne says:

    Is she pretending to be a dumb blonde or is that who she is??? She reminds me of Jessica Simpson when she was doing the tv show with Nick & pretending to be a dumb blonde wittle baby. DISLIKE!!!!!!

  45. Koala says:

    I cannot stand when any celebrity shades the “gluten free diet” just because it perpetuates the idea that it’s just that– a fad diet craze. For some people it’s not a choice. We cannot eat gluten without horrible stomach pain/problems, breaking out in an itchy rash, and sometimes being terribly exhausted. It’s not fun, and not something I would choose. I love pizza.

  46. Mischa Jane says:

    These Vanity Fair pics are the best she’s ever looked, ever. She looks fantastic!

  47. Milla B. says:

    Sorry, but I don’t understand why there are people here defending her saying: “Oh look. She is not referring to people who are allergic to gluten. She is talk about people who do this for lose weigh”. I’m mean, just stop. Girl is so obsessed with weight that her interviews always have the subject. People can do whatever they want with their body. If some one like her can base her diet in Doritos and pizza the others one can base their diet in gluten-free and vegan food. We are not talking about anorexia anymore. We are talk about what people prefer to eat. I can’t imagine my life without my pasta and my wine, but why I should judge people who do otherwise. It is their stomach, Jennifer ! Leave them alone !

  48. CharmmyKitty says:

    I just don’t find her persona appealing. I wouldn’t ever give her any grief for the photos–they’re hers and she’s a victim and her private life is her own–but her reality tv-watching-farting-Doritos-eating schtick is tremendously unappealing to me. I guess I’m sort of formal. I never really realized it, but there it is.

    • shayne says:

      I think she is now trying to appeal to men. When she first hit the scene it was to appeal to young girls & women but now it’s the “sexy, not like other girls” Jennifer era.

  49. K says:

    Funny how she’s the victim of a “sex crime” for having pictures stolen but she worships Woody Allen? Even if she doesn’t believe he raped Dylan, he still took naked pictures of Soon-Yi when she was 15! This girl is the biggest hypocrite in Hollywood.

  50. Eleonor says:

    I like scones.
    I make them so I can put everything I want, mostly chocholate.

  51. emma says:

    Has she actually watched Curb Your Enthusiasm? Larry David is the most argumentative person. That’s what the entire show revolves around — him arguing and getting in ridiculous situations.
    I get that she thinks he’s funny, but it’s just silly to say you don’t like argumentative people and then think Larry David is her dream guy.

    • shayne says:

      don’t forget she gets feelings for Larry David “below the belt”. This article is directed toward guys who like to fart, eat pizza, & watch trashy TV…And old geezers who love non argumentative, dumb young girls.

    • Dutch says:

      That could have been the reporter jumbling quotes around. Larry David could have been brought up in a non-romantic context but lumped the quote in that group because it fit there. Writers do that stuff all the time.

  52. original kay says:

    there goes all the goodwill I had towards her yesterday, after reading her quotes about the stolen pics.

  53. siri says:

    She sounds extremely stupid, and arrogant. Besides, there seems to be a misunderstanding about gluten. You can eat plenty of carbs WITHOUT gluten, so you do not have to leave out the carbs completely. Gluten, by the way, is a protein which makes the flour sticky when combined with fluid. Amaranth, buckweat, quinoa, rice, wild rice, oats, millet etc. are ALL gluten free. You can also bake with these grains, there are plenty of recipes. It’s not an eating disorder to eat gluten free, aside from the fact that there are people who are intolerant to it. But also they can eat carbs.

  54. Jaded says:

    Honey, you need to develop some filters. You were goofy and charming at first but this verbal diarrhea has to stop.

  55. Luciana says:

    Not eating carbs is as bad as eating all the crap this girl has confessed to eat. There’s no middle ground here with these two. At least Goop tries to promote a healthy lifestyle by eating consciously and working out while JLaw promotes hot girl with big apetite and high metabolism. I’m not saying Goop is the health guru by any means but I rather take avised from her than Jen. We are what we eat said Hippocrates.

    • The Original G says:

      I am completely mystified as to why either of them would give dietary advice and even more mystified that anyone would care.

      • Jaded says:

        I know, they both need a side order of gluten-free STFU.

      • Luciana says:

        Fans care. A young girl looking up at JLaw cares. Sad but true.

      • Isadora says:

        @Luciana: I agree that celebrities like JLaw are rolemodels and therefore something they say can be problematic. On the other hand they are also normal people with faults and the young girls looking up to her have to reach a point when they think for themselves, eventually. If I think back to the people I looked up when I was a teenager then JLaw seems like the Blessed Virgin Mary preaching truth and love. 😀 And I still turned out fine. I think parents and your environment should play a much bigger role than what an actress said in a Vanity Fair interview. Or on her homepage where she tries to sell a cookbook.

  56. Leelip says:

    J-Law isn’t stupid – she’s sharp as a tack in TV interviews, and her comments about the hacking were spot on, well-phrased and very brave. Frankly, I think people who dismiss her as dumb are just not paying attention. But she does need to develop filters: there’s a lot in this interview which is carelessly phrased or way too casual, the type of stuff that people in their early 20s toss off without too much thought, and the body functions/reality TV/never dieting chat is getting tiresome. Her PR team need to have a serious chat with her – she’s beginning to sound very immature just when she’s poised to become Queen of Hollywood, and the Chris Martin thing doesn’t help that perception. As Algernon says, there is a risk that she’s going to be frozen at 20, the age when fame hit. Having said all that, I do think that she is genuinely eccentric, and that fuels her remarkable acting talent…

    • Someonestolemyname says:

      Not all her comments about the nudes were spot on iMO

      She said she sends her bf pictures , or else he’d be looking at PORN. IMO that’s just demeaning herself, but people seem to want to ignore that she equated herself with basically replacing porn, for her bf with that coment.

      • Erinn says:

        I took it as “well, he’s going to look at nudes, might as well be mine”. I had to deal with the long distance thing – I get that. And that’s how I felt. I couldn’t give a shit if he wants to look at pr0n, but hey, might as well share some photos with each other instead.

    • Gia says:

      IMO her extreme success is down to David O Russell being completely infatuated with her. He’s cast her in all of his movies. I mean…she played an aging mother and ex wife to Christian bales character in American Hustle!! How anyone bought her in that role is beyond me. She’s…what…22?? It’s all part of the Hollywood game and she’s aligned herself with the right people.

      • jane16 says:

        Spot on, Gia!

      • Leelip says:

        She’d be massive without David O Russell, on Winter’s Bone and Hunger Games alone. Her performance in the former is astonishing, I’m not saying that she’s not annoying at times – but her talent is obvious.

      • Gia says:

        But being a good actor doesn’t win you Oscars. Politics does.

  57. Konspiracytheory says:

    Holy cow, is that statement annoying. For those who don’t know…celiac can be diagnosed by a blood test and/or biopsy (I tested negative). Gluten intolerance doesn’t have a test (yet), and many doctors are woefully uneducated about it anyway, which does lead to the dreaded ‘self-diagnosis’ crowd. Well, I was one of them, until I was ‘officially’ diagnosed by a knowledgable allergist, which changed…nothing. I treated my intolerance by going gluten free pre-diagnosis, and continue to do so post-diagnosis.

    For those who don’t ‘buy’ gluten intolerance…now when I get accidentally ‘glutened’ (which thankfully hasn’t happened in a couple of years), I get arthritis-like pain in every joint in my body *and* I am severely constipated for days, to the point of fluid leaking around the impaction and out of my body in a most distressing manner. Live through that just once and I assure you that you will no longer think gluten intolerance is BS.

    • Leelip says:

      To be fair, in the full interview it’s clearer than in the VF extracts that she’s giving out about people adopting a gluten-free diet as a lifestyle choice than for health reasons – but it’s still carelessly expressed.

      • Konspiracytheory says:

        I see your point – it just irks me that, through her mission to show us all what a ‘laid back, cool chick’ she is, JL is thoughtlessly feeding into the whole ‘unless you have celiac, there is no reason to give up gluten’ crowd.

      • Leelip says:

        Yeah, you’re right – I’ve a friend in a similar situation as you, which is why her comments struck me as being much too casual.

  58. Whitney says:

    Is she also allowed to fart in front of him? Why can’t we ever talk about women farting and pooping? Just guys like to rip one? I don’t think so

  59. Amanda says:

    All I know is gluten-free food sure is popular. I just went to a natural food store to find a gluten-free pie crust, and they were sold out. I have a family member with gluten intolerance and I want to make a pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving ( I’m Canadian).

  60. mollie says:

    Gosh she is so utterly annoying. Twit.

  61. jane16 says:

    Regarding her ignorant comment about gluten free diets, yes, it is trendy, but its trendy for a reason, because it helps a lot of people in so many ways…less bloating, gas, diarrhea, fatigue, etc. Going gluten free does help with weight loss also, provided you don’t eat a lot of gluten free products, which are actually quite high in carbohydrates. A lot of theses gluten free breads have potato flour–very carb-y! But if you’re sensitive to gluten, and not potato, you’ll look thinner because you’re not bloated. Gluten is a very tough, rubbery protein and difficult to digest for many people. I have had food allergy tests three times and each time I came out as allergic to gluten and I def feel better when I’m off of bread (which I love), so I only eat bread occasionally, and then if its really delicious bread. Funnily enough, I am able to tolerate pasta from Italy (I buy organic DeCecco), which makes me wonder if the problem is the mass produced, new strains of wheat that is grown here in the USA. I think scientists have screwed with our food way too much, and we are too far from natural. The fact that the country is so overweight, with diabetes on the rampage tells us that something is wrong with our food. btw, for you youngun’s: even if you can eat everything now and not gain weight, don’t count on that lasting forever. I am tall, long limbed and ate like a horse and was size 3 or 4, but once I hit forty, my metabolism changed, I had a lot of health issues, and I had to make big dietary changes and really watch the sugar and flour products.

  62. Steph says:

    I just love this girl…probably because she is the anti-Gwyneth.

    • Annie says:

      But it’s so obvious she tries soooo hard to brand herself as the anti-Gwyneth just because ‘that’s what the people want’ – which makes her equally annoying in my book, if not more so.

      • Steph says:

        perhaps….the woody Allen comment was creepy. I still think the girl is too smart to stay with Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow. Dating Chris Martin is pure insanity if you have to deal with Gwyneth Paltrow on a daily basis.

    • Charlie says:

      She tries to be cool just as much as Goop does, and she has a persona just as much as Goop does. They preach different things, but I think they’re very similar.

      • A. Key says:

        I see it too. They’re two sides of the same coin.
        Which just says that Martin is a perpetual child who never evolves and changes. Wow, now that’s sad.

  63. Annie says:

    I get it Jennifer, you have a perfect amazing body and you do crap all to maintain it- you are just naturally perfect and great even though you eat 5000 calories of junk per day and refuse to work out. You have a genetically superior stomach/metabolism made of cast iron *yawn*

  64. Someonestolemyname says:

    Is this what happens when actresses start dating Chris Martin, they become critics of foods and dietary issues as well as annoying? …..Or was she that way all along?

  65. TedTheodoreLogan says:

    I normally find her annoying but she has a point.

  66. FaithlessUndine says:

    Liking someone doesn’t HAVE to mean that you ‘re endorsing every vile thing about them. Maybe she just really digs the neurotic ‘Woody Allen persona’ projected in a lot of his movies? Chica does have questionable taste in entertainment & men.

  67. Kate says:

    Screw you, JLaw. Gluten makes me feel awful. You’re welcome to sit in the bathroom with me and hold my hand/rub my back while my body is trying to expel it.

  68. shenasty says:

    I can’t stand this chick. I can’t. I feel bad for her for what happened with her pictures but it doesn’t change the fact that she’s a rude moron.

  69. Immy says:

    Diagnosed with Celiac Disease – 8 years ago, I have other family members with it as well.

    Love hearing how my diagnosed, genetic based disease is “an eating disorder.” I would love to eat all the things I used to love – real pizza, real pasta, without destroying my intestinal tract.

    So tired of people forgetting that Celiac’s is a legitimate medical disease, and not a hipster fad.

  70. Chris says:

    She left out the part about the guy needing to be a famous multimillionaire. But I guess that’s a given.

  71. Angie says:

    There are rumors that Woddy Allen wanted to work with Jennifer Lawrence. He offered the female lead in the movie with Joaquin Phoenix and Emma Stone was his second choice. Some people were hopeful she refused because it was Allen but now we know she likes him and doesn’t care. To bad she talked about him in the same interview about the leaked pictures. She was so eloquent on the subject I was impressed, so It was probably written by her PR team….

  72. Veronica says:

    I actually get what she was trying to say there about the gluten free diet, since while it’s billed as a health benefit, it’s really about weight loss for most people. I keep my gluten intake low because I have a mild sensitivity, and you wouldn’t believe how many people assume I’m lying about it. I can only imagine how much the term gets misused in Hollywood where women are pressured to be so thin. This being said, she stated that very poorly. Her interviews generally don’t bother me, but sometimes her youth and inexperience can be kind of glaring.

    The Woody Allen thing is cringe worthy. Was this interview before or after that news broke? If after, that is really unsettling.

    I’m with her on boring relationships, though. Granted, I wouldn’t pick a 37-year old, newly separated father of two children to be bored with, but to each their own.

    • Celia says:

      It was before. They went back to get her comments on the photos later. Still, should have said she worships Allen’s MOVIES.

      • Veronica says:

        That makes it a little less obnoxious. I can see how it may not have occurred to her how bad that was going to look all put together if they were done at different times. Still, I hope somebody in her life has a hand ready for the slap she demanded for if ever she got too full of herself. She hasn’t quite gotten there yet, but she needs to be careful.

  73. hmmm says:

    Her likes are just not that interesting.

  74. Sam says:

    Of course Jennifer Lawrence is a horrible person who only says things to hurt people and their feelings. Of course she ment to mock each and every person who can’t eat gluten beacuse of medical reasons, and their families and friends too. She became famous only to irritate the x out of every serious I never say anything but well-though sentences gossip page reader. Geez, sometimes I wonder about you people!

  75. Abbicci says:

    That open mouth pose on the cover makes me cringe.

    I guess I never had the love for JLaw that some people have. I thought she dumped her boyfriend to win an Oscar. Uncle Harvey told her she had to be single because all the old men voting for her wanted to think they might have a shot with her. So she did what she was told to win her Oscar ( for a movie that sucked monkey balls).

    I get that she was trying to say that people inclined to disordered eating can now use gluten free as a way around hiding the fact they have a problem. Sadly, she has a problem using grown up words. Sigh, one more undereducated Hollywood star spouting off without thinking about what they are saying. One more example of why we need to send our daughters to college.

  76. LaurieH says:

    I thought Jennifer Lawrence’s comments were cute. C’mon, she’s only 24. And I agree that “gluten-free” has become the latest diet fad/eating disorder. Yes, there are people who suffer from celiac disease and must avoid gluten in their diets, but it’s not a common disease. I am happy that food manufacturers are given people with celiac disease more variety and choices, but some people go “gluten-free” without any medical need to do so. As to the farting thing, admission to loving junky reality tv – so what? The only comment I side-eyed was about Woody Allen. Ewww

  77. jwoolman says:

    She must not know much about food if she thinks gluten-free (and vegan?) are low-carb.

    Honestly, nobody will die from not eating gluten or dead animals. There is a huge world of food out there to explore and enjoy. She just is immersed in a culture that is big on eating wheat and meat and doesn’t realize that other cultures exist that aren’t .

    Are we supposed to think eating grapefruit is a sign of an eating disorder because of the “grapefruit diet” that was popular in my youth? Chronic dieters are always latching onto a must-eat or mustn’t-eat food, it’s a hobby. But people shouldn’t be discouraged from experimenting with eliminating and then reintroducing foods to track down sources of problems – that is still the most reliable way to discover allergies and intolerances, many of which will not show up properly in lab tests (which have great limitations and many false positives and false negatives; I’m a chemist and would not trust them myself, although they’re useful with children and non-experimental adults to get them started). And unless you have life-threatening problems (most don’t), you don’t have to run to a doctor to do such detective work on your own. Geez, it’s just food.

    Cutting out gluten for a while is useful especially because we overload on it in our culture- often people have a threshold before something bothers them (celiac is an exception and rarer), which is easily reached when you’re eating wheat every day and at every meal and snack. It may not actually be the protein (gluten) that is the culprit for some, but rather carbohydrate portions of the wheat or even residual pesticides (which are heavily used for American wheat). The pesticide connection is especially interesting- some people find that using organically grown wheat is no problem while typical American wheat is. Decades ago when I was testing for food allergies, the advice from allergists was to always test the organically grown version of a food before assuming you’re reacting to the food itself, you could be sensitive to the pesticide residues.

  78. HoustonGrl says:

    B*tch please. You don’t get a body like that from stuffing your face all day long. She’s what, a size 4, at the most?

    • Celia says:

      I don’t know, I’ve seen some behind the scenes DVD extras from Hunger Games and X-men and she was filmed eating crisps.

      Honestly, considering her age and the fact that she needs to do a lot of running scenes, it’s entirely possible she just has lucky genes. I have a sister who is thinner than Lawrence and doesn’t really exercise outside of normal walking and she eats plenty of crap without gaining any weight. Even when I was doing sports 6 days a week, I was still three sizes bigger than her (and we are the same height).

      I really wish journalists would stop asking actresses about food though. I don’t think it serves any real purpose plus they never seem to ask men about it unless they have been on some crazy lose 60 pounds or gain 60 pounds diet. I don’t see why young actresses are almost always asked about their dietary and excise habits. I mean, does anyone here really care what they eat?

      • Veronica says:

        Honestly, it’s not quite so much eating that crap as how much of said crap you are eating. I have a decent sized sweet tooth, but I keep an eye on my calorie intake and adjust my other meals and exercise routines accordingly to maintain my weight. Granted, I’m not model thin and tend to plateau at a size 6 at my thinnest, more often settling around an 8/10. But if I had millions of dollars being thrown my way, I’d probably be able to motivate myself to keep me at the smaller size.

        So yeah, I can believe she eats junk food. She’s thin, but she’s not excessively toned, which usually means she’s got some fat still on her. Frankly, weight loss is much harder than weight maintenance.

    • A. Key says:

      That’s what I thought. I’d say I can’t wait to see her hit 40 and still maintain her bankable appearance in the film industry while simultaneously shoving her face with french fries and crisps every meal. Then again I don’t care that much about her to actually want to see her in the cinema 20 years on from now. By then there’ll be another 20 year old new starlet who’ll look great no matter what, get all the roles and have a relationship with Lawrence’s farting ex-husband by then.

  79. Yawn says:

    She’s just like Gary Oldman; un-pc for the sake of it; for the sake of letting everyone know how individualistic they are. Reality TV’s for stupid people, and what about people who have celiac disease? We get it, Jen; you’re extremely rebellious and unique. Now can they stop doing interviews with her? This person has nothing to contribute to the world. Even her acting is mediocre.

  80. Gillian1 says:

    If you read the full interview, it is clear that J-Law made the remark about the gluten-free diet as a throw-away comment to the interviewer while she was explaining why she was now putting soy into her coffee instead of milk. I’m not sure therefore that it deserves the weight of condemnation that it’s received here…I do wish she would stop talking about reality TV and farts, however – that was entertaining a year or two ago, but it has a limited shelf life.

  81. MAC says:

    Her photos stolen per her are sex crimes, she loves Woody A, and her eating disorder comment.
    This little girl is all over the place. I hope she isn’t cast in any movies I want to see. The list of movies I skip due to casting just keeps getting longer.

  82. jbap says:

    I get that J-Law is due a burst of backlash, as people are getting tried of the ‘I don’t diet/I love crap TV’ shtick she does, and for the life of me I can’t understand why she (or her PR handlers) didn’t take the opportunity of a VF interview to move on from that worn-out theme. But, having read the full thing, I have to say that i) she is looking fierce in those photos, ii) the journalist was obviously charmed to bits by her, and ii) to give the girl some credit, it is obvious that everything she says comes directly from her and not her publicists, who must be suffering perpetual heart attacks from how she skates around the edge of disaster in every interview she does.

  83. jbap says:

    Oh, and I’m give her a pass on the Woody Allen front. Frankly, Hollywood remains ruled by male directors – even an A-lister like J-Law is wholly dependant on decent roles on the casting power of people like Woody Allen (who I can’t stand), and she like everyone else needs to suck up to him. It’s only career common-sense, and if people like Cate Blanchett aren’t calling him out, then younger stars like Lawrence or Emma Stone can’t be expected to do the same.

  84. HeatherN says:

    Wow, wow! All I can say is this lady is not only overexposed, but all that money and no college degree.. And it shows. She says some really stupid stuff. And the money she gets….think of all the social workers and teachers you know. Used to be a fan, but, see I work in the DV and SA service industry with victims of real sex crimes….and well, now I think she’s just really stupid.

    • Jack Lee says:

      Where I’m from – the UK – sexual voyeurism is classified as a sex crime, and treated as such by the police. Phone hacking clearly falls within the definition of that crime. (I’m a paralegal with a law degree, working part-time in a law firm.) So J-Law isn’t wrong or ‘stupid’ to describe what happened to her as a ‘sex crime’. Whether it’s a ‘real’ sex crime depends on your perspective: it’s clearly not even remotely close to a direct sexual assault, but if it happened to me I wouldn’t be too relaxed about it. So, she may not a college degree, but I’d contest that she was ‘stupid’ to say what she did.

  85. A. Key says:

    LOL, fame is getting to her, no doubt. She’s also very young, people keep forgetting that. It’s like listening to a 15 year old who is dead sure they’re right about everything and that they know everything best.
    What’s sad is that this rich child is being shoved down our throats as some sort of role model, as if her opinions and behavior should be a guideline to everyone on the planet. I mean, really…

  86. lewan says:

    I am diagnosed celiac and I went gluten free because I could not put on weight and I was not absorbing the nutrients in my food when I was eating gluten. I know it is a fad now in Hollywood, but for people who do not have the disease it is basically to go on a version of Atkins diet. There are a lot more gluten free products now out there than when I was first diagnosed over 10 years ago and they are carbs! You can get gluten free pasta and bread. I went gluten free to gain weight and be healthy. She probably sees people go on the diet to lose weight but it is upsetting when people think you are eating gluten free to go on a diet. I think her offhand comment was made not thinking about people who actually have celiac disease.

  87. Chris says:

    Wow. Over 300 posts on J Law? Doubt it would’ve happened without the diet and Woody Allen content. I was gonna say the Woody Allen diet combo but that felt wrong.

  88. Appleminis says:

    I don’t know what to think about this interview. Vanity Fair is owned by Advance Publications, which also owns Reddit, where the photos have been leaked.

    Maybe she didn’t know but it seems quitt odd to me to do this interview and talk about the nude pics scandal in a magazine that is owned by the same persons that leaked your own photos.

  89. DrFunkenstein says:

    Yeah, that’s news to the sufferers of IBS associated with gluten intolerance. By the way, Einstein, there’s a genetic test that can actually establish if you have an intolerance, and for many people, it is the source of their greatest problems associated with IBS. If you’ve ever watched someone you love suffer for years with the terrible pain associated with bowel spasms and a variety of other wonderful side effects of this thing, you wouldn’t be so quick to be so dismissive. Idiot.

  90. Mikunda says:

    Bless her ignorant heart. She will hopefully live to be 40 and with so much toxic stuff around us, I hope her stomach will be healthy enough to still be able to process gluten well and without bad consequences. My stomach isn’t. I dream warm, soft, chewy chala bread infused with the smell and taste of sweet raisins almost every night, but should not eat if I want to be fine. And I was healthy just a couple of years ago.

  91. Crazy Reader says:

    Gluten free = basically I just don’t eat carbs? No, you are so wrong, Jennifer. This woman is so annoying and ignorant.

  92. Ice Queen says:

    She kinda strikes me as someone who’s one huge brat. I hate people who criticize other people’s eating habits. If someone like and strongly believes in gluten-free diet, leave them alone. (If they preach about it non-stop and criticize someone’s eating habit, then, yeah, I understand the hate).
