Jennifer Lawrence gives Aziz Ansari a piggyback ride in New York: silly?

Jennifer Lawrence, Aziz Ansari and Amy Schumer took the party from Atlanta, where they were staying in a house together last week, to New York to support Schumer’s SNL hosting gig. Lawrence was spotted giving Ansari a piggyback ride outside the wrap party for Schumer’s gig at the Wayfarer Restaurant. She loves to ham it up for the paparazzi and this is just her latest stunt. They look like they’re having a great time and while there’s surely alcohol involved they’re not at Shia LaBeouf levels of drunkenness. Plus this is a cute way to get attention as opposed to admitting to poor hygiene. Sometimes this woman makes me shake my head and other times she’s adorable.

This makes me wonder how tall Aziz Ansari are Jennifer Lawrence are. He’s 5’6″ while she’s 5’9″ so he’s probably not hurting her back or anything. Also, she’s thin but surely strong. Check out her abs, damn! In case you wonder whether there’s the possibility for a romance between these two, I doubt it. Ansari has a live-in girlfriend, a chef whom he met through friends. He practically gushed about her in his book Modern Romance.

I didn’t get a chance to watch Schumer’s SNL gig but reviews were mostly positive. Slashfilm has a recap of the best and worst sketches. There’s a lot of buzz over a faux commercial with lambasts Americans’ obsession with guns.

Here are some more pictures of Lawrence out in NY this weekend. She wore a white slip dress and black blazer for an interview with Diane Sawyer on Saturday and she was seen out in a long teal peacoat that same day. My favorite look is the coat, that’s incredible. The purse is Valentino. (This isn’t the exact purse but it’s the closest I could find.) Her hair looks gorgeous that length and it makes me want to cut mine into a lob. At the very least I’m going to try a side top braid. Mockingjay Part 2 is out November 30th.

    She looks like renee zellwegger before she had her eyes done

    • xxx says:

      Looks like she had filler put in her cheeks

      • Shambles says:

        Nah, I think that’s just regular old chubby cheeks. I have a pair myself. I think they’re cute on her.

      • Alex says:

        Nah Jen has always had chubby cheeks. Just flip through any pictures of her ever

      • hadlyB says:

        Last time she had filler she really over filled her cheeks. She does have full cheeks but also uses filler — her face changes shape a lot. Up and down the cheeks go, and way over filled last year or the year before. Even though she had lost a lot of weight.

        Kinda like the Kardashians.

      • Bae says:

        I don’t see the cheeks, but I think she had a subtle nose job.

      • Mrs. Darcy says:

        I think her face looks “different” from time to time but I think maybe she is someone who gains/loses a little weight and it shows in their face? I really don’t think it’s fillers at her age, surely? :-0

  2. Lindy79 says:

    I have tummy envy, serious tummy envy.

  3. Janet R says:

    I think more like a young Helen Mirren in the piggy back photos! Nice to see her having fun.

  4. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    She grates on me, but that just looks like regular mating behavior for a twenty something.
    My husband and I (finally) watched Silver Linings Playbook this weekend. It was cute, but I can’t believe she got an Oscar for that.

    • Mimz says:

      To me, GNAT, it looks like harmless fun, yes, but it also feels a bit Swifty, the whole “silly squad” thing…
      About SLP I absolutely agree. I enjoyed the movie, watched it before the oscars, but don’t think it was oscar-worthy.
      But then again… what are the oscars nowadays …

    • evermoreOriginalhere says:

      She grates on me too, but wow her tummy looks awesome.
      Is she bleaching her hair out for a role?

      I actually liked her in SLP, but not sure if it was Oscar worthy.
      I actually thought Bradley did a great job.

    • Little Darling says:

      Regular mating call of a 20 something. Ha hahahahahahah!

      Most of the time I adore her because I simply find her interviews to be pretty hilarious. I don’t think she’s fully formed as an adult yet, but she seems sweet to everyone, and out for a good time. Can’t shame her.

      She did NOT deserve the award for that. If anything, she should have gotten it for
      Winters Bone.

    • Cindy says:

      Me either about SLP. I fell asleep and I don’t care how it ended.

      I do love JLaw though and I have a completely B*llsh*t armchair psychology theory about her acting out/silliness in front of the paps: I think she is overcompensating because she really cared for Chris Martin and he dumped her. She’s hurt so she’s overdoing the “see Chris, I don’t care!”

      She looks amazing in the slip dress and black tights and I love her front wrap braid.

      • Jules says:

        @Cindy: Eh, I get the feeling it was more of a mutual thing. I think Lawrence finally realized that Martin was NEVER going to be free of his crazy, controlling Goop of an ex. I think Lawrence ran fast out of that relationship and left skid marks.

        Good riddance to Milquetoast Martin and crazy Goop, I say.

      • Mark says:

        @cindy I agree to the arm chair thing

        @jules Why is Gwyneth bad for wanting a relationship with the father of her children? It’s not controlling at all, Jennifer just seems immature if she can’t handle her boyfriend wanting to spend time with her kids, she needs to get her head out of her backside and live in the real world, it doesn’t revolve around her.

    • Hannah says:

      I liked her a lot in SLP, but of course winters bone was a performance with more gravitas. She probably should have won for that. But that was a small independent movie and those don’t normally go further than nominations.
      Jlaw constantly gets compared to much older actresses Luke Amy Adams and Jessica chastain, it’s always said they deserved it more. While I agree that chaistain and Adams offer more sophisticated performances ( and they should, at 41and 38 respectively).
      In terms of her actual age group I think she’s one of the best.
      Her contemporaries are people like Emma Watson and kristen Stewart whom she’s far ahead. The only actress I think is significantly better in that age group is Mia wasikowski. Jlaw has that movie star charisma though, more commercial appeal.
      Hollywood like to award their golden girls and boys oscars, I am not more upset by her Oscar than Ben afflecks Oscar for Argo or Matthew mchonnaheys Oscar both arguably triumphed over equal or better colleagues because Hollywood are charmed by them.

  5. Liz says:

    Love the teal coat.

  6. smcollins says:

    In that last pic Jennifer and Diane Sawyer could pass for mother and daughter! I find her very pretty and she has a really cute style (very age appropriate). I don’t mind her at all.

  7. Franca says:

    Annoying and attention seeking.
    And I don’t think she’s 5’9. She’s tall, but not that tall.ï

    • evermoreOriginalhere says:

      I think she might really be 5’9″ or very close. I interned for ABC one semester and was sometimes sent to get wardrobe brought in for Diane Sawyer, I think she was 5’9n half or 5’10″ In the photo she’s wearing heels and JLAW is wearing flats.

  8. Junior says:

    She looks like Gigi Hadid.

  9. OTHER RENEE says:

    I still can’t get passed the no hand washing after using the bathroom. My gaze goes directly to her hands and my thoughts go directly to germ territory. Only then might I glance at her clothes.

    • Tammy says:

      Is it possible she was joking, lol?

      • evermoreOriginalhere says:

        Oh please, the other actor told part of the story, too, it was real and she did it, the other actor confirmed it . She stuck her hands in Hemsworth’s face after not washing her hands after going to the bathroom and said “Does this smell like your Mother?” Sorry but she sounds nasty.

        She’s disgusting as far as not washing her hands and her bathroom talk. Not attractive.

  10. snusnu says:

    Omfg her figure is awesome.I am 5’9-5’10 and naturally very skinny with a thin waist.I started going to the gym in August and my figure has improved,I have a butt now! But her body is ideal to me.Also for the piggyback thing,I give piggyback rides to my shorter female friends at times for fun.No big deal.

  11. Joss RED says:

    Still don’t know who’s Single White Femaling who (between JLaw & Amy Schu).

    • Jules says:


      Both Lawrence and Schumer are too strong in their respective careers to SWF anyone. I really think it’s as simple as they hit it off as friends, and are working on a script for the film so, they are in almost constant contact with each other.

    • Alex says:

      Amy honestly. She constantly posts about Jen and has given numerous interviews where she name drops her in the last month. I think its part they hit it off fast and part Amy knows the name dropping will help her

  12. janel says:

    Diane Sawyer! True beauty!

  13. aims says:

    Amy killed it on SNL. The gun skit was hilarious. Amy’s very funny and smart.

    • lucy2 says:

      I’ve only seen the first half so far, and I’m not really a fan of hers, but I thought she did very well in what I saw.
      She and Jennifer seem like they are having a lot of fun together.

  14. S says:

    News at 10.

  15. captain says:

    I don’t know him, but really dislike it when men wear shoes without socks.

  16. Mark says:

    ha ha look at her so quirky and down to earth, she’s just like us, she’s so perfect giving her famous friend a piggyback #squadgoals

    But she needs to make her mind up weather she hates fame and the paps or she wants to make a scene so they’ll take her and she’ll get some attention. At least Kristen Stewart is consistent with her disdain.

  17. Ellen says:

    This hair color on her is really working for me. Would have thought the platinum / white blond would wash her out, but it looks great.

    • Linn says:

      I have to disagree. I think the color doesn’t suit her at all and she looks so much better with dark hair. In some of the pictures her her seems pretty damaged to me as well.

    • evermoreOriginalhere says:

      It looks trailor trashy. IMO But her figure looks awesome.
      I’ve never had a tummy that flat even when I was super thin. LOL
      Her figure looks great.

  18. QQ says:

    That hair!!! is BLOOOOONNDE in the unflattering territories shade actually

    I’m bummed I Missed SNL ( Being high and watching Rick and Morty No less!) cause i’m absolutely dying at the Weeknd and Nicki Minaj together in a stage doing things and Amy’s monologue was hilarious

    • Little Darling says:

      Her monologue was HILARIOUS. I was watching on my computer with my headphones and kept hooting out loud!

    • esthetix says:

      Rick and Morty love!!

      Can’t wait for season 3 :(

      • QQ says:

        Omg I LOVE THAT SHOW!! What they get away with saying/the situations HILARIOUS, the one about the Bird Person wedding and then how they were on the run with Rick and he surrendered to the authorities with NIN Hurt version Playing???! i was Like HOLY SHIT WHAT IS THIS PROFOUND ASS CARTOON?!?

  19. Tig says:

    Love that teal coat. Diane S looks amazing. Still can’t believe Mike Nichols is gone.

  20. Lama Bean says:

    The whole white dress combo is making my nerves bad.

  21. J. Lawrence got a nose job.

  22. Donna says:

    Diane Sawyer is beautiful and effortless. JLaw is starting to bug me with her cutesy for the pap antics. Gorgeous hair though.

  23. Jules says:

    Goodness gracious, Jennifer Lawrence has an amazing figure!!.

    Love the piggyback ride, it looks like they have a fun friendship.

  24. Gina says:

    She’s not thin. I wouldn’t say she’s fat either, of course. But she’s weirdly puffy/bloated, she looks like if Amy Schumer dropped couple of pounds

  25. Claire says:

    I’m kind of getting tired of her. Great coat btw!

  26. Axis2ClusterB says:

    Is it just me, or does her face look different?

  27. Div says:

    Cute and harmless.

  28. Cinderella says:

    Not sure if she’s copying Kate or Gwyneth with that new look.

  29. B says:

    Am I the only one who feel like she’s using fake Valentino? Hahaha

  30. stella says:

    She is such a STUNT PRINCESS!!! Nothing wrong with that but dont pretend that she didnt LOVE attention – she clearly need it. And i like her …until she open her mouth and say AGAIN some ignorant stupid bull-shit.
    BTW, who knows, what happens with her and Chris Martin??? Why they split up??? Is it was really any serious???

  31. The Other Katherine says:

    Aziz Ansari is 5’6″ like I weigh 120 lbs. — he’s not, and I don’t. 5’6″ in cowboy boots with a 2″ heel, maybe! All part of the great IMDB height inflation for male actors. ;-)

  32. Emmygrant says:

    What’s he doing hanging out with Jennifer Lawrence and company without his girlfriend? I think it’s very likely they could have a thing (he and Jen, I mean).

  33. Kate says:

    Her unpalatable personality, immaturity and general grossness are why Hollywood studios so tightly controlled their stars’ images in the past. There’s definitely something to be said for not knowing anything about actors and maintaining the fantasy.

    • Kattie says:

      And yet Lawrence is probably the biggest female star at her age for decades – so she’s certainly doing lots right on the PR front…

  34. Jade says:

    She looks like she can be another Hadid sister. Nothing wrong with that, just an observation.

  35. Aren says:

    I think it was cute and her body is beyond amazing.
    Shame I find her movies boring.

  36. K says:

    She is painfully thirsty, but I would kill for her figure she has a great figure, she clearly eats because she looks healthy but is thin and works out.

    However, she is thirsty and annoying and did not deserve the Oscar but I’m beyond jealous of her figure.

  37. iheartgossip says:

    She looks really bloated in the face. Isn’t she too young for fillers ‘n botox? I’m confused.
