Jennifer Lawrence’s grandma: Chris Martin will spend Christmas with us

These are photos of Jennifer Lawrence at the BFI London festival premiere of Serena, which is JLaw’s third movie with Bradley Cooper. She’s wearing a Dior LBD that’s an adapted version of a men’s tuxedo tuxedo jacket. It’s not terrible, and Jennifer pulls off the ultra low-cut neck. I would prefer a little more tailoring in the waist area, but the dress is supposed to look like menswear. JLaw’s hair looks really cute here. Her makeup artist finally stepped up the game too.

BCoop didn’t attend this premiere. I don’t blame him for skipping because the movie looks frighteningly awful. (The trailer is at the bottom of this post.) I’ve been avoiding talking about Serena because it makes me sad. The film sat on the shelf for years and barely found a distributor. Reviews have not been kind. Variety calls the movie an “arrestingly nihilistic Depression melodrama.” BCoop & JLaw play a married couple who build a timber empire. She’s really cool because she kills rattlesnakes and cuts down trees. Then she can’t bear children, and it turns into a murder mystery? Magnolia Pictures feels confident enough to release Serena on Thanksgiving. We’ll see.

There are several JLaw-related bits of gossip to relay. Let’s start with Jennifer’s chatty grandparents, who are thrilled with Chris Martin. This relationship continues to amuse me because all we’ve seen are blurry pics of them standing by a private jet. We’ve heard plenty from Goop sources and bystanders at Coldplay concerts, but nothing from the two lovebirds themselves. Now JLaw’s grandma and grandpa have spoken to the Sun (via the Mail) about how Chris met JLaw’s mom. He’ll be attending the Lawrence family holiday festivities too. Riiiight:

Jennifer Lawrence has introduced Chris Martin to her parents. The American Hustle actress flew her mother, Karen Lawrence, into Los Angeles to meet her new boyfriend, Coldplay frontman, Chris Martin and they are reportedly already talking about spending the the holiday season together.

Jennifer’s grandparents confirmed this new development in the couple’s relationship to The Sun on Sunday. Her grandmother Carolyn Koch told the newspaper: “Jennifer’s mum flew to Los Angeles to meet Chris. We will have to get another chair for the dinner table at Christmas. The family is getting so big we might have to split up for gatherings.”

The 24-year-old Academy Award winner might be infatuated with her new man, but according to her proud grandfather, Colin Koch, she isn’t so keen on the attention she receives when she goes out.

He explained: “Jennifer doesn’t like the hype. She looks like she really enjoys doing TV interviews but she’s just a great actress.” Colin then added that his granddaughter hasn’t let fame change her fun personality. He told the newspaper: “She hasn’t changed one bit – she is so humble and down to earth.”

[From Daily Mail]

Are we really supposed to believe that Chris wouldn’t spend Christmas with his two children? Even if one disregards Goop’s laminated schedule, I have a hard time buying that Chris would skip out on Apple and Moses to fart around the X-Mas tree with JLaw’s parents. They’ll probably do a coupley New Year’s vacation instead. Sorry, grandma.

* The Mail has some really cute photos of Jennifer during her childhood and high school years. She looks like a goofy ham from the very beginning, and her hometown friends dished some stories about prankster JLaw.

* Vanity Fair spoke with a confused Larry David. He appears to have no idea why Jennifer professed her love for him during her VF interview. Larry says he’s way too old for her, and thinks that JLaw must have been talking about her knees when she mentioned “below the belt,”

Here’s that Serena trailer. Burn it with a forest fire.

    It’s always someone’s memaw who spills the tea.

  2. Colton says:

    Her face really lacks symmetry. It’s so confusing.

    They need to stop trying to pass her off as some smoking hot, talented actress. She’s neither to be honest.

    • Sara says:

      look. im also not into the hype and she is not the best actress of all time but she certainly is a talented actress. there are so many much worse actresses in her generation. Kristen Stewart has one facial expression, Emma Watson only moves her eyebrows like crazy etc. Jlaw can act. it is not as amazing as the hype makes it out to be but as i said you cant really deny that she has acting talent.

      • Colton says:

        She was okay in the second Hunger Games. That’s it. American Hustle was laughable and she was the worst part of it.

        And she is just not good-looking enough to make up for her over-hyped talent. Emma Watson is. And Emma seems smart and down to earth as well.

      • maybeiamcrazy says:

        I didn’t notice actresses had to be pretty enough to make up for their overhyped talent. And just because you don’t like an actress doesn’t mean they are overhyped/overrated. It just means you don’t like them. I don’t find J.Law as good as Academy finds her to be either but all this overrated BS has to stop. As if people cannot decide for themselves to like a celeb or not.

      • Kitten says:

        Oh give me a break-she’s not even in my top ten favorite actresses but the girl CAN act. She has a lot of natural talent.

        …and she’s very pretty–maybe not a knock-out or a classic beauty but she’s very attractive imo.

    • nicole says:

      her face lacks symmetry? is that a beauty ideal that we should in pursuit of? i’ve been told i have a large nose, or my eyes are close set, but never that i lack symmetry. how odd!

      • jalee says:

        I love Emma Watson as much as the next person, but acting wise she hasn’t shown yet that she has anything like J-Law’s fire or intensity.

      • Colton says:

        Yes! I actually participated a study in college and we found that the most symmetrical faces were pretty much always considered the most beautiful.
        Even infants with no preconceived notions of beauty were attracted to symmetrical faces; they tend to stare at people with symmetry and recognize them as something fascinating. It’s really interesting, google it!

      • Kiddo says:

        Her face is pretty damn symmetrical, I don’t see what you are saying. No one’s face is perfectly symmetrical.

      • perplexed says:

        I have no interest in this movie or her personality, but I think babies would like her face.

      • sigh((s)) says:

        I’ve heard the studies about symmetry. Funny, because I’m in no way symmetrical, and babies love to stare at me. Also, I find non-symmetrical faces much more interesting and attractive. I love a man with a crooked nose or smile.

      • Kiddo says:

        @sigh((s)), symmetry does not require perfect features. It has to do with balance.
        As far as Jennifer’s face is concerned, the proportions on each side are very very close.

      • sigh((s)) says:

        I know kiddo. That’s what I’m talking about. If you have a crooked smile or an uneven nose it’s typically because the sides aren’t symmetrical. Crooked by definition means out of shape.

      • Kiddo says:

        @sigh((s)), but it’s overall symmetry. Models have crooked smiles or funny noses, but it’s the balance of one half of the face to the other. Like alignment of eyes, cheekbones, ratio of forehead to chin and whatnot.

        You can still be very symmetrical, with one part off, if that makes sense.

      • Betty says:

        Studies on beauty have shown that people find those with symmetrical faces to be more attractive than asymmetrical folks. On the other hand, a feature that’s slighly off, such as a high forehead or slightly large eyes, may make take someone from being good looking in an average way to beautiful.

      • CharmmyKitty says:

        Actually, that’s pretty much the definition of human beauty, evolutionarily-speaking.

    • Tifygodess24 says:

      Colton beauty is subjective , what you don’t find attractive someone else will. Most faces ( without tweeking ) are not perfectly symmetrical

    • kibbles says:

      I understand what you are saying. I guess she has the girl next door appeal that a lot of Americans are into. Her schtick about disliking diets and loving to pig out appeals to that very large demographic that makes up a large number of Americans, especially where she is originally from in Kentucky. But I also don’t think her looks are particularly special or unique or beautiful. I also do not believe she is a great actress. She is good but not worthy of an Oscar. Hollywood is all about hype thought. Lots of overrated A-list actors out there with Oscars who don’t deserve it.

      • jalee says:

        We’ll have to come back in twenty years to see if she really becomes a great actor – instinctive, untrained performers like her often don’t last the pace, or become trapped into a set of mannerisms. However, I’d argue she has already delivered 2-3 genuinely inspired performances (Winter’s Bone, the first HG, American Hustle) that have been exceptional. Also, while she’s not conventionally beautiful, she has an ease of manner and personal charisma that resonates with lots of people – which doesn’t come across so well in print interviews, but does on TV. That is where the obsession with her as a personality is coming from – which I don’t fully get myself, but can understand.

    • Annie says:

      I agree with you. She’s a really decent actress, but that’s it. Definitely not worth the hype she’s getting right now. Maybe in the future she would be really great but with all this praise she already got (undeservedly in my opinion) she’ll become lazy to develop and even try harder because she simply doesn’t have to. And it’s a shame because she lacks technique.
      As to her “personality”- her schtick is boring but I guess we will never get a break from this.

      • jalee says:

        Just now, her lack of training isn’t a problem – I think at present she may be the most electric and charismatic actor in Hollywood. But the danger of stagnation is real, and I think the expectations that she should play leading roles all the time is really dangerous for her development. Mind you, she looks great in that outfit…

      • Dany says:

        yes, Jen is a decent actress, but not as good as some people praise her. She likes to overplay her roles and that is ok for now. People like her and her acting because they like her “real” persona. She is fresh, charismatic and young. She has a puppy-face. I wonder if she will live up to the expectations people have. What will be in 10 years? Now she´s young and portrays herself as this doofy farting teenie. People expect that she is better than other young actresses and that she can carry every movie and will only play in Oscar-movies in future. What will be when she leaves the young-adult-baby-face phase? Will people still find her adorable like a little puppy if she isn´t the farting teenie anymore? What if her acting is now on its zenith? What if she cannot carry movies alone in the future?
        In some way Jen has it harder than other young actors. Her Oscar and the expectations are a burden. That´s the negative site when you get too much praise and awards this young.

    • lucy2 says:

      I think she’s very talented. She’s probably over-hyped a bit, and is probably offered everything in Hollywood right now, but that doesn’t mean she’s not a good actress.

    • Andrea says:

      Lacking symmetry. My ex-bf said that about most people, and got some of his exes to get plastic surgery after his insistance (not me, I am not that dumb). I loathe men with that attitude towards women.

    • RJ says:

      Have you seen Winter’s Bone? She’s a good actress.

    • Chris says:

      As long the public keep buying what she’s selling she’ll continue with her current strategy.

    • Bob Loblaw says:

      In your opinion, because a lot of other people find her smoking hot and talented. Also symmetry is over rated.

  3. Virgilia Coriolanus says:

    The impression I got from the trailer and the wiki pages (about the book) was that Serena didn’t like children (well, one particular child) because she couldn’t have any. So she got jealous and angry, and went after someone else–instead of the husband (that cheated on her).

    And wow–if this is true. I have no words. Have either Chris or Goop filed for divorce yet? That would be my main concern–if I wanted more than a fling. Meeting parents for Christmas is more than a fling.

  4. mkyarwood says:

    Ugh, if she doesn’t like the hype then why are her grandparents being quoted? That would definitely annoy me. Also.. I dunno about the neckline on that tuxedo dress.

    • Ollyholly says:

      Because it’s a tabloid that makes things up.

    • Nicole says:

      They didn’t even get her grandparents NAMES right for the story. It’s all BS. Her parents and grandparents don’t do tab interviews I think I remember one sit down interview they all did during her Oscar campaign in Kentucky.
      Also the Daily Mail article had fake Chris quotes in it too. The friend that did the interview (which nice work by Jen’s PR for the nice and normal girl routine) said they knew nothing about any Jen and Chris Martin relationship and did not say that he was coming to Kentucky for Christmas and planning a wedding. So yes there is crap being made up

  5. LB says:

    I haven’t been feeling her lately. I thought it was because she and Nick Hoult broke up and she rebounded suddenly with Mr. Goop. But then I realized I also don’t like her pairing with Dior, I thought she was overused in the 2nd Xmen which I just saw, and her interview with VF was equal parts decent and trainwreck. Meh. I have ups and downs with celebs though so she’s probably a few interviews away from winning me back.

    My friend saw Serena and said it was an awful mess.

  6. ran says:

    wow she looked beautiful.

    • Jamie says:

      She looks great in these pics. It usually looks like her makeup artist hates her guts. She pretty when she’s wearing less makeup.

  7. Maya says:

    I don’t know why but I have this feeling that J-Law is a train wreck waiting to happen.

    • Gillian1 says:

      I know what you mean – she gives the impression that she’s constantly one step from disaster, but she’s just walked away from one train wreck more or less unscathed, and it looks as if people are very willing to give her a break. Certainly, Hollyweird would be much more boring without her around – there was a reason why herself and Lupita were given seats in the front row at the Oscars this year, whereas many of the established boring kings and queens were put further back.

    • Josefa says:

      I love Jen, but I get that feeling too. It’s weird, I can just imagine the voice of the narrator on an E! documentary talking about how she had everything and it all went down the drain.

      She’s clearly no Lindsay Lohan but, idk… it’s just a weird feeling I have.

    • Rita says:

      Why we can’t be happy if a girl is normal? drama doesn’t happen always. She’s a sweet girl with a strong family

  8. Jessica says:

    Seems like every celebrity has that rogue family member who starts talking out their asses when they get a call from a journalist.

    I think Serena looks fine. Susanne Bier is one of my favourite directors, but her films can be a bit polarising. People either love her films or hate them. JLaw and Bradley are getting raves even from people who thought it was a mess so it’s not a disaster.

  9. AG-UK says:

    NO desire to see that film the preview was awful enough and it was only 3-4 minutes long.

  10. K says:

    Ugh. One of Susanne’s worst films. What a disappointment.

  11. maybeiamcrazy says:

    Talking to the press is such a shitty thing for a grandfather to do. I would be furious.

  12. Aussie girl says:

    To fart around the Xmas tree with Jlaws parents. Bahahaha!! Bed head that was gold.

    As far as this movie goes, I avoided reading the book because slashing my wrists seemed less depressing than it (jk, for all you sensitive souls). Yeah the book looked shit and I can’t imagine the movie been any better. Jen & Bradley sure like working together.

    • Kiddo says:

      Xmas carol:

      Said the little ham to the caterwauler boy,
      Do you hear what I hear
      Ringing through the sky, caterwauler boy,
      Do you hear what I hear
      A fart, a fart, high above the trees
      With a voice as big as the sea
      With a voice as big as the sea

      • Aussie girl says:

        Love it. I can see her whole family singing this doing arm pit farts around the tree.

      • Kiddo says:

        Don’t forget the goofy faces.

      • Abbott says:

        And the Dorito tinsel!

      • Ag says:

        and everyone tripping and falling.

      • Kiddo says:

        Oh Christmas tree, oh Christmas tree, of all the trees, I fall into you most clumsily
        Oh Christmas tree, oh Christmas tree, of all the trees, sparkly Doritos dust shines so lovely
        Each year you bring to me delight, even though Chris’ carol voice is such a fright
        Oh Christmas tree, oh Christmas tree, in front of you a group pose, all face-goofing-ly.

  13. Tiffany27 says:

    What is the movie about exactly? That trailer was a mess.

    • Tig says:

      The book is amazing, and very dark. Serena marries the BC character, and he brings her back to the family timber business- this is 1920s in western NC. Serena wants a child by her hubbie- who already has a child by a prior relationship. She can’t and slowly goes off the rails. Pls read the book- I can’t do it justice.

      At one point in time- Angelina J was to play Serena, and Darren A was to direct. I am sure this director is good, but JLaw was simply too young to play Serena. That being said, will prob see it when it gets to the States.

      • Aussie girl says:

        Maybe I should retact comment. You like the book, I’m thinking I was to quick to pass it off..?

      • maybeiamcrazy says:

        I passed that book too. The plot sounded absurd and non-coherent but if you suggest I might read it. Maybe it is one of those books that can be understood only after reading.

      • Rhiley says:

        A lot of my friends have read it and really liked it but I wasn’t that interested. Over the past few weeks though I have thought more about reading it. It has been in my iBooks library for several months now. Maybe I will give it a go. Your review makes it sound more interesting than others I have read. I love books like Cold Mountain and Lonesome Dove as well and hope Serena may be something similiar.

  14. Barrett says:

    I can’t wait until she and Chris Martin breakup. He is too old for her. And it’s a boring coupling.

  15. tump says:

    Jaw got an excellent write-up in that same Variety review that thrashed the film – including a comparison with Barbara Stanwyck no less, which I can totally see. If she can avoid directors like Bier (who has always been mediocre at best), she’s going to have a stellar career. She’s certainly the best raw talent to emerge in Hollywood in generations.

    • Ann says:

      Bier has made some very good movies and is more than “at best mediocre”. As a matter of fact, Bier is one of the better directors Law has worked with.

    • Sullivan says:

      They compared her to Stanwick? Huh. I initially wanted to reject this comparison, but I can kind of see what they’re talking about.

  16. tump says:

    PS: That outfit is the best thing that Dior have put her in for ages. And I suspect the grandmother story is completely made up, or distorted beyond belief – the source is the Sun, so it’s worth less.

    • Liv says:

      Yep. She was with Nicholas Hoult a pretty long time, I think theres already a chair for her boyfriend.

  17. Leftovers says:

    Does the Goopy household celebrate xmas? Honest question – I thought they were being raised Jewish/Kabbalah-ish.

    • Ag says:

      I suspect they celebrate it sort of as a cultural, not religious, thing. (My family has always done that despite being completely non-religious.)

      • Kiddo says:

        @Ag Yeah, my friends and I celebrate Winter, essentially. The tree and gifts are a tradition not linked to anything religious at all. Some family members still have a religious connection, but it’s about 50/50. Maybe less, if you take out the older people versus siblings.

      • Ag says:

        that’s exactly what we have always done pretty much, none of my family, close to extended, ever assigned any religious meaning to the holiday. my husband’s family is christian (he isn’t), so watching them have a sorta-religious connection to christmas has been interesting (they do go to church on christmas eve, but then engage in the most insane consumerism imaginable the day after).

      • Kitten says:

        It’s all about winter solstice and Yuletide, m’fers.
        It was originally a pagan celebration that was later absorbed into the Christian festival Christmas.

        Initially, it had nothing to do with religion until Christians decided to use it to “sell” Christianity and convert the pagans.

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        I guess I never thought of the people who don’t celebrate Christmas. I know some people who celebrate it as a Christian Holiday i.e. read the story of Jesus’s birth before they open presents, and I know people who celebrate it as a family holiday–where you get presents and have a big meal, and spend time with family. I don’t get why the name would have to be changed unless you were Pagan (or something else) and celebrated the holiday the way it was intended.

      • Ag says:

        @Kitten – well, people who celebrate it as the birth of Jesus don’t like to think about that. 🙂

    • Betty says:

      I hate that I know this, but Gwyneth has Hannukah dinner and Christmas breakfast:

  18. jalee says:

    Fair play for her showing up for the premiere of her first really bad film – the temptation must have been there to run away and let it sink into oblivion. But she’s a pro.

  19. mimi says:

    I have a very hard time believing Chris Martin is going to spend Christmas with Jennifer over his own children. He seems like a very involved, loving father which includes lots of family outings with his soon-to-be ex, Gwyneth. So far, their split has been civil, as far as the public knows anyway. This will be the children’s first Christmas after Chris and Gwyneth’s separation. I would imagine he would want to spend the holiday with his children more than ever to help them cope with the recent split from his wife. Spending New Years Eve with Jennifer makes more sense to me.

    • Ag says:

      i also tend to believe that he would spend christmas with his kids, esp since they’re still quite young and, like you said, it’d be their first christmas since the split. christmas is such a kid-friendly holiday that i can’t imagine he would skip out on it.

  20. Nina says:

    i think is BS. I don’t believe that her grandma spoke with journalist

    • Kiddo says:

      Who spilled all the childhood photos, though?

      • Celia says:

        Daily Mail probably offered money for photos/stories for some of her childhood friends and those took it. On the other hand is a seriously sh-tty thing to do, on the other hand I can understand why someone with students loans would be tempted to do it in this economy. Especially if they aren’t good friends with her anymore, they might have thought what the hell, why not.

      • Nina says:

        Her friends said on twitter that they haven’t give agreement to posted the pics and that they haven’t talk about Martin. It’s the usual crap of Daily Mail

      • Kiddo says:

        Could be. But then again, presenting her as a child may have some benefits in pushing back the conversation from the other released photos.

        She was cute as a button, looks the same, really.

      • Lucy says:

        The pictures were provided by Jennifer’s team. There is even a copyright at the bottom of the daily mail article that proves it. More PR work to distract from the pictures and from her first flop. I do give her props for showing up to support a film she knows is getting panned.

      • Artemis says:

        see Lucy’s comment.

        They are trying to change the conversation and by know, people should know her team is very good with that. Ruthless, calculating and perfectly timed given the nude leaks + bad reviews.

        There is nothing better than getting people to see J-law as the sweet goofy GIRL again who everybody came to ‘know’ and love.

      • Someonestolemyname says:

        IMO The Childhood photos and childhood stories are from her handlers to redirect the conversation or image away from the nudes.

        I just heard radio hosts still talking about her nudes, wondering who took them of her, etc…so the discussion is still on them on some level. I think her management would like to move the conversation away from those nude photos and we will be seeing different ways of them trying to do that.

      • Nicole says:

        Her team spilled the photos. If you look the photos all have a stamp that shows it’s copyright. It was an obvious “here’s Jen as a happy normal teen” PR slant. Her team sold the photos to DM just like they arranged for that far away pap shoot at the airport. No one just happens upon a private jet getting into an airport…and most definitely not Daily Fail. They are carefully constructing the narrative around Jen to distract until November comes. It’s working because the tabs are spinning their wheels making up story after story for clicks. I mean they already did the “excited about marriage” and “she’s already pregnant” angle.

      • Rita says:

        What copyright? There isn’t. Are you one of those people who like make conspiracy theories? You must write fanfiction

  21. Celia says:

    It’s the Sun or even if they claim they ‘talked’ to her grandparents, it doesn’t necessarily mean they talked to them but could have talked to someone claiming to have talked to someone who talked to someone etc. They really aren’t reliable and skirt the truth/lie all the time when it comes to celebrities.

    I’m a Coldplay fan and Chris Martin has been in London for the past week recording and someone who is a Jennifer fan said on a different site that they got her grandfather’s name wrong… On the other hand the British tabloids are famous for harassing the relatives of famous people for quotes and sending people to the hometowns of celebrities to dig up past info about them and their families so it’s actually believable that the British tabloids would send up some people to Kentucky to try to get quotes and buy stories and childhood pictures of Jennifer since they often do something similar to newly superfamous British celebrities and the Chris Martin/Goop/JLaw story has been huge in the UK and the tabloids have been writing 1-3 articles a day about those three for months.

  22. GlimmerBunny says:

    I think “Serena” looks good! I’m a sucker for period drams and I loved Jennifers and Bradley’s chemistry in SLP.

    I call bullshit on Chris spending the Holidays away from his kids.

  23. Rhiley says:

    Her hair and makeup look really good, but the “dress” is awful. Makes her look like a naughty executive assistant who had just been with the boss in his office when all of a sudden BOOM someone starts to open the door so she grabs what she can to cover up- the boss’s jacket. And just as the other man makes his way in, she straightens her hair, fumbles with a pen and legal pad, asks, “Is that all, sir?” says “hello” to the visitor and casually walks out of the office.

  24. Tig says:

    @ Aussie Girl and MaybeI’mCrazy- Ron Rash wrote Serena, and several other novels. He has a real gift for capturing the beauty and insularity of those NC mts. Serena has several brutal scenes that are hard to take, but they serve the purpose of reinforcing the hardness of the setting. So forgive me for rambling on, but so enjoy book chats!!

  25. manatee says:

    She definitely tends to overact in her films but I’m fine with it, better than stiff actresses who only have one boring expression. Unfortunately she’s always wearing Dior, Dior and Dior on events, so dull and uninspired and absolutely not suitable on her. She has a such a fresh pretty face and wearing these sometimes really uber-mature dresses isn’t the right stuff for her. She can try this “tuxedo” in 20 years…

  26. Jacob says:

    Bradley Cooper is a NY. he has rehesal for his work on Brodway

  27. Ag says:

    Why does she keep being cast into roles meant for older women? Weird. I guess it’s supposed to be box office appeal?

    • Ollyholly says:

      In the book the character is younger than she was when they filmed it. What are you talking about?

      • Ag says:

        What I’m talking about: while I haven’t read the book myself, I’ve heard that the character was older. Clearly my information was erroneous.

  28. Tump says:

    I haven’t read the book, but I read somewhere that the character she’s playing is in her early twenties, ie exactly the right age.

  29. Lolle says:

    She’s beautiful and in the pics of yesterday she looked very happy

  30. laughing girl says:

    I wouldn’t believe anything the British tabloids say, they pretty much lie constantly. Re the Chris Martin/Jennifer Lawrence pairing: dear God, enough already, when will it be over?

    Ha! Jennifer Lawrence’s Grandma:…! I don’t know why but I love that headline!
    More stories should start with ‘well, Jennifer Lawrence’s grandma said…’

  32. Arriety says:

    Her attendance it was a success. She was happy and carefree. Media said that missed her on red carpet and it’s true. She really unique in this. I think she gives a good message for all people who have bad situations : stay strong!

  33. Chicagogurl says:

    Silly question. I know she’s from Kentucky and Koch brothers are from Kansas but is there any distant relation? If not, what an unfortunate last name her grandfather has.

    • Ag says:

      i think it’s not an uncommon germanic last name (literally means “cook”). otherwise, that’d be gross, poor her. haha

  34. Dibba says:

    Sick of her already

    • Ollyholly says:

      Good thing you’re clicking on articles about her, reading them, and then taking the time to make a comment. You seem really over her.

  35. Paloma says:

    Not sure that comment merits confirmation of holiday attendance.

    I am tickled imagining Gwynn getting a bit upset about this relationship.

  36. Jh says:

    Her hair is pure perfection at this length. That is all.

  37. shizwhat says:

    Honestly… wtf. Why is she bothering with an older divorced dad. It’s just gross on both their parts.

    • Ollyholly says:

      How is it gross of her though? She’s not a teenager, she’s a grown up dating another grown up. He’s lame, sure. But who cares.

    • Ciria says:

      You mean an older married dad/man. He’s not divorced yet. I personally would not want to date anyone going through a divorce/still-married. Especially not in my 20s!

    • Chris says:

      An older divorced Dad? I think you’re underselling him just a tad. He’s also a highly talented, successful, rich, fairly attractive, internationally acclaimed performer.

      • Somenestolemyname says:

        Chris Martin is a rock star and some 20somethings would probably find him sexy.
        Wasn’t he having a flirtation with Rhianna for a bit! Or was that tabloid crap?

    • Bob Loblaw says:

      I agree, it’s a mistake to get involved with someone in the middle of a divorce or leaving a long term relationship. You’re either a rebound or you have to deal with all the baggage and unfinished business of his previous relationship. Plus kids are involved, she should run away.

  38. MaryLu says:

    Gwyneth’s father was Jewish and I read somewhere that GP was raised Jewish and is raising her children the same way. If true, then they probably don’t celebrate Christmas and this story could be true.

  39. Melanie says:

    Fart around the Christmas tree? LOL

  40. Josefa says:

    You know a movie is awful when you couldn’t even watch the 2-minute trailer for it. If this movie manages to break even with it’s budget then I’ll say God damn. JLaw truly is something else.

  41. Jbap says:

    You know, J-Law can really frustrate and annoy me, despite all her talent : I moan about her a lot on this site, and others. However, she does make life interesting, and there is an energy and liveliness about her that makes most other celebs appear so boring and two-dimensional in comparison.

  42. Veronica says:

    Serena is infuriating because it had the potential to be really interesting – how often do female characters get to be have like that? How often do you have an actress as good as Lawrence in that role? Such a missed opportunity. I’m hoping this isn’t the start of a downward trend for her movie-wise. Martin Lawrence is such a disappointment on its own. It’s not going to keep my attention in the meanwhile.

    The dress is sort of meh for me, but this is by far the best she’s looked in awhile. Great hair and makeup.

    • jbap says:

      Yes, Serena looks like a colossal lost opportunity – not JLaw’s fault, but still.. Given that various film journalists have reported on Twitter that Lawrence has had to pass on both Tarantino’s Hateful Eight and the next Affleck-directed film because of her David O Russell and X Men (yawn) commitments, she may be losing momentum – which would be a shame given her talent.

      • Dandy says:

        I don’t think so. She’s the most hottest actrss right now and this is her last xmen movie. After she hasn’t franchise and can chose her projects with more ease

      • Veronica says:

        Well, I can understand the David O. Russell because that’s been nothing but good to her. Hustle got her that second Oscar nomination. X-Men is probably contractual, which is a shame because a.) it’s not her best work, b.) the movies are too busy wallowing in White Male Pain to develop any of the complexity Mystique could have.

        I don’t think it’ll kill her career by any means, but it would be a shame to see her get stuck in roles for awhile that really don’t use her talent to the extent that it could. This is a pretty defining time for her. She rode the high to this point – now she has to create a baseline that will keep the momentum going. She’s got a backlash to be aware of, and the Martin Lawrence relationship isn’t really doing much to her benefit since despite its gossip boost, the reaction by most people is WTH.

    • Anne says:

      There isn’t a backlash. People like her even more. Go to twitter and you see that. Every actor in demand had to pass some roles

  43. Jbap says:

    ‘White Male Pain’ – love it, spot on about X-Men! I just hope her talent doesn’t get wasted – which given the paucity of decent female roles is a real risk. Also, no male counterpart with anything like her CV would ever have to worry about backlash like she does, or phone hackers for that matter…

  44. khaveman says:

    I find her an immature goofball who needs a few years to mature. I really can’t stomach her acting right now but maybe in a few years. She’s Chris Martin’s jump-off and I can’t get into the hype.

  45. Jade says:

    Will most senior citizens even recognise a band member from Coldplay or even Coldplay? I think for stars like Tom Cruise or Brad Pitt, there would be a higher possibility but I find it hard to believe a typical senior citizen knows who is Chris Martin.

  46. DrFunkenstein says:

    You know, I just don’t get her. I understand that she hit the media lottery with the whole “Hunger Games” thing, but frankly, she’s pretty much “meh”. I always think “One Hit Wonder” when I see her.
