We’re nearing the home stretch for the Mockingjay: Part I press tour. Jennifer Lawrence may disappear after the week ends, and we may not see her for a long time. I don’t think she’s going to do awards season either. Perhaps Serena was part of a grand plan to avoid schmoozing at parties.
Jennifer’s done a few last-minute interviews. She sat down with Elizabeth Banks for a “ask the badass” video talk. They bantered back and forth, and Elizabeth said, “You’re a guys’ girl. You basically have a p-nis.” Liz asked JLaw to finish the “I am a badass because…” question. Jennifer responded, “I’ve started downloading whole albums instead of just songs from artists.” I hope she’s not referring to Coldplay. She is, isn’t she?
JLaw’s co-stars have a lot to say about her. In all fairness, journos are asking the questions, and they’re happily printing the responses. One co-star went completely overboard. Donald Sutherland compared Jennifer to Jesus Christ. Oh boy:
Jennifer Lawrence has an Oscar and two Golden Globes.
She’s not only part of the X-Men family, but Guinness World Records recently named the 24-year-old actress the highest-grossing action heroine of all time for her work as Katniss Everdeen in the Hunger Games franchise.
And now we’re thinking the Church of Jennifer Lawrence may be next. Or perhaps she can star in a reboot of Oh, God!?
“When I worked with her, I realized the child was a genius,” Donald Sutherland, who plays President Snow in the Hunger Games movies, told me last night at the premiere of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1 (in theaters on Nov. 21). “She’s the right person at the right time in the sense of Joan of Arc or Jesus Christ, any genius, in that sense.
“She has the ability as an actor to tell the truth out of the material and that truth is immediately recognizable with everybody because it hits you in your heart, your solar plexus and your mind,” the legendary actor continued. “And she has the genius of person to be not affected by all of this. She’s just a real girl.”
Julianne Moore, who makes her franchise debut in Mockingjay as District 13′s President Coin, gushed about their leading lady, “She’s delightful. My first impression is she’s really incredibly witty. I love her as an actress.
“I think even more she’s a wonderful human being,” Moore continued. “She’s kind and generous and funny and great to be with.”

That’s a very sweet answer from Donald, but it’s also embarrassing. I can practically see JLaw roll her eyes from here. People already think she’s overrated, and now Donald is making the most ridiculous comparison ever. Jennifer doesn’t suffer from Kanye West delusions. Remember, she’s only an actress. She doesn’t think of herself as iconic or Jesus-y.
I wonder what Donald thinks of co-star Lenny Kravitz. Time for a picture.
P.S. Here’s the video with JLaw and Banksy.
