Jennifer Lawrence in Dior at the ‘Dark Phoenix’ premiere: she looks, um, different?

Dark Phoenix premiere, held at Hollywood's TCL Chinese Theatre

I didn’t want to say this on Monday, when we discussed the Jennifer Lawrence photos from the polo event over the weekend, but… Jennifer Lawrence has definitely tweaked her face, right? In the polo photos, I thought she just looked very well-rested and slim, like she’d lost some weight in her face. But in these photos of J-Law at last night’s Dark Phoenix premiere, she looks… different. What has she done? Something with her chin, maybe? Her nose? Her eyes? She still looks like J-Law, but just slightly off. Jennifer wore Dior to the premiere and I actually love this dress and I wish she had saved it for a bigger carpet. This would have looked amazing at an awards show. I also wish she had done a different hair look here, but I suspect the hair will be the “excuse” for why she looks different.

Sophie Turner in Louis Vuitton. She’s got a Louis Vuitton contract and I hate that she’s obligated to wear this to her big premiere. This dress sucks.

Jessica Chastain in Toni Maticevski- a jumpsuit with a train. And bangs! And a cast! I wonder what she did to her wrist. The jumpsuit is not great. At all.

Michael Fassbender with long hair and a light summer suit. Whatever happened to his dark sexual energy? He just seems so blah these days.

    I cant even tell what she did to her face.

    • duchess of hazard says:

      @Cidy her nose I think. Her bridge looks different.

    • StormsMama says:

      I’m going to give her the benefit of the doubt and say it’s her muted lipstick combined with dark eyes and the weird lighting at the event. But yeah there’s an older more mature look happening and it’s uncanny.

    • AnnaKist says:

      Yep. I said a while back that she’d started tweaking her face. Not necessary.

    • JAC says:

      She has been messing with her face for years now.

    • Harryg says:

      A chin implant? A very small one?

      • MindlessContemplations says:

        I think a chin implant as well. Here is a pic from when she was promoting red sparrow and her face was a lot rounder in that movie and during promotional tour. Now she has more defined chin which has elongated her face making it appear less round.

    • broodytrudy says:

      I think it’s a combination of subtle brow work-her face has “opened” quite a bit more, some botox around the mouth, and debloating. We’ve seen Jen a bit of a drunken mess for years now and I think debloating and dramatic changes in her face in the last few years (not necessarily surgery, though she’s had some, my face went from Miley Cyrus roundness to waking up with very defined cheekbones in less than a year) all make her look different.

    • maya8 says:

      @MelM I agree. She definitely did something to her teeth. Her mouth/chin area looks weird and unnatural, like she’s not used yet to whatever she changed. I saw her on kimmel with the rest of the dark phoenix cast and she was also very tan and robot looking. I don’t know why she would change anything, probably that trashy family’s influence, lol.

    • Silver Charm says:

      I was watching her on Kimmel last night and her face was moving weird but still can’t pinpoint what she did. She also took over the whole interview which made me feel bad for Sophie.

      • maya8 says:

        I mostly felt bad for Jessica who was sitting in the back. I mean her and Sophie have been doing most of the promo work. If someone should have been sitting in the back that’s Lawrence :P

      • Silver Charm says:

        @maya8 I completely forgot Jessica was even there (yikes)…

    • whatWHAT? says:

      I also thought she looked a little dif in the photos yesterday, but I chalked it up to her face maturing.

      but these pics?…her nose looks smaller, and I agree with Mel M re: the mouth. veneers was the first thing I thought.

    • Char says:

      She is Kris Jenner friend, maybe It was a gift.

      • jen says:

        omg dying

      • Queen Meghan’s Hand says:

        Ha! Yes maybe.
        She’s been getting work done since she hit big. Her “Ahm uh real gurl” shtick makes it hard for me to see it but these comments have opened my eyes.
        This time around the plastic surgery merry-go-round, I’m going to guess teeth. Probably for her wedding.

      • Otaku fairy... says:

        Eh. Real girls can want ‘more attractive’ looks for themselves too.

    • jen says:

      Holy crap she looks different, I think it’s her nose, it looks much flatter. I just can’t imagine waking up and looking in the mirror and seeing irreversible changes like this, freaks me the F out!

    • Tootsie45 says:

      She’s had width removed from her jaw. They can remove the fat pad, reshape the bone itself, and/or use Botox to paralyze the masseter (chewing) muscle, which slims some people’s faces considerably. And maybe a very small chin implant?

      I think it’s beautiful work. I also think it’s shitty that women have that much pressure on them to not JUST be beautiful, but be beautiful in this very formulaic way.

      I’m not going to judge someone for making changes, but I hate that it’s sold as being “natural.” I’ve had a boob job and it made an ENORMOUS difference in how I feel about my appearance. My sole regret is that I didn’t do it sooner. That said, I’m also 100% honest about it, and will talk about the experience to literally anyone, hahaha. I’m proud that I was able to take charge of something that was bothering me, work hard, earn the money, do the research. That’s MY body, MY money, MY decision, MY happiness, MY vanity. I just hate that girls and women look at this and compare themselves to something that isn’t even real.

      • Snowflake says:

        I really want a breast lift. My mom and husband both believe you shouldn’t do surgery unless you have to. Hubby says it’s my choice. I miss my big perky boobs. I’ve got other areas i’m not as happy, my tits were my pride and joy 😊

      • Tootsie45 says:

        @Snowflake, I went back and forth on it for almost 20 years. I was raised to think that it was a very vain, very shameful thing to want, to be worried about. I was both ashamed of my body and ashamed of wanting to change my body.

        While I value the message that we are more than our appearance, I can also say that that message caused me pain too. When I woke up from the surgery, I felt the most enormous sense of relief. I had felt so much shittier and self conscious for so much longer than I needed to. I think there are some things we have to learn to love and accept about ourselves. There are some things we grow into. There are some things we learn aren’t as important as we thought at 15 or 25. There are some things we can change through taking better care of ourselves. And then there are some things surgery can change. I don’t think there is a right or wrong, and I don’t think anyone can make the decision except you. I would recommend talking to a therapist, getting a few consultations with surgeons, doing some research. Just know what the options are, what the price tag is likely to be, what kind of recovery and long term scarring, and then be sure in yourself as to if/why you want to do it, and what your expectations are physically and emotionally. Don’t rush the decision, but know that the decision is yours to make. Good luck <3

      • Snowflake says:

        Oh, thanks, that’s good advice

    • elle says:

      In that second photo, she looks like she took a photo of Diane Kruger to her plastic surgeon.

    • smcollins says:

      Maybe I’m not as observant but I’m not seeing what everyone else seems to be seeing. I think a nose job is fairly obvious, but who in HW hasn’t had one (or two…) of those? I think the difference is a combination of her face maturing (getting more angular), not seeing her for a while, and makeup. And considering she was just a teenager when she started out her looks are going to change as she ages. Isn’t she almost 30 now? I know that, for me personally, in my late 20’s my face lost a lot of its roundness/fullness and my jawline looked more defined. I could be totally wrong and she’s mega tweaked, I just don’t see it. 🤷🏻‍♀️

      • Godwina says:

        I don’t either. I’m thinking contouring and a shitcrapton of foundation. I’d have to see her face in action rather than in a still photo to be sure it was surgery.

        ETA: just watched a vid embedded in comments and as she smiles, yeah, I see puffiness that has more to do with makeup.

    • ann carter says:

      I say just dental veneers.

    • babyboo says:

      She had fillers and a nose job. Takes one to know one :) She looks bomb! Stunning!!!

  2. Becks1 says:

    Ooh James McAvoy really IS looking good these days.

    JLaw def looks different, but I cant put my finger on it. Its like she looks juuuuust different enough…..something about the eyes I think. I do wonder if its really heavy makeup, because it looks like the area between her eyes, around her nose, is super smooth, but she looked the same over the weekend. Maybe some light botox?

  3. Maria says:

    Everyone looks really off, in some way.

    • Ronaldinhio says:

      I thought Sophie Turner’s face and hair were exquisite.
      The dress a too low trainsmash.

      • Dee Kay says:

        Sophie Turner looks amazing in the face and hair department. Otherwise, IA with Maria, everyone else looked not-great, McEvoy looks good but tired. Fassbender looks a mess and totally un-hottified. Hoult: cute concept but no. Chastain: what a terrible outfit for her, she is usually a great beauty. Sophie’s dress is all wrong for her. And I already miss JLaw’s ever-so-slightly-wider face. She looks…narrowed.

  4. CharliePenn says:

    Her nose! Her most looks fake as hell to me. Ugh I hate that she felt the need to mess with her beautiful face.

    • Millenial says:

      She was so pretty. I do not understand why these women with great faces do this to themselves.

    • ToLiveLikeWeRDying says:

      U have to look up her plastic surgery!!! U would never believe the amount of work she’s had done just like Bella Hadid!!! It’s insane

      • Steph says:

        Not to that extreme. She did something to her nose a while back and she did lose a little bit of weight in the hunger games era.

      • Deedee says:

        Everybody’s face changes from the teen years into adulthood. What she’s done is minor, if that.

      • Lex says:

        It’s definitely only injectables this time around. Surgery (implants, nose jobs etc) take time to heal and leave scars. She was in the media not long ago when she got engaged. Nowhere near enough time to heal. Some fillers and a hefty skin peel is all it takes.

    • Diana B says:

      It’s definively her nose. She has an Olivia Munn’s air kind of thimg going on. They get surgery and start looking all the same.

  5. Chloe says:

    I actually love Sophie’s dress, but probably because it’s one of those dresses/looks that I wish I could pull off but never in a million years would be able to.

  6. Sofia says:

    “Whatever happened to his dark sexual energy?”

    Hopefully (for his wife) it’s gone because he’s not beating on women anymore.

  7. GreenBunny says:

    “Nicholas Hoult truly looks amazing in this 1986 women’s suit from Liz Claiborne”.

    This is description is amazing and spot on. I’m glad I wasn’t drinking my coffee when I read it because I laughed so hard at it. Thank you for that!

  8. Esmom says:

    Hahahaha at the Liz Claiborne comment. I feel attacked, lol. Although in 1989 when I had a Liz Claiborne suit (burnt orange double breasted jacket, burnt orange and white checked pleated skirt), pants suits were still uncommon, at least in Chicago. I feel like I didn’t feel comfortable wearing pants to the office until the mid-90s. Yikes.

    I don’t detect any changes to J Law’s appearance, maybe because I’ve thought she’s looked different since Mother! I like her dress a lot, and Sophie’s, too. I don’t like Chastain’s bangs.

  9. Kirsten says:

    I think it may be her makeup?

  10. SJR says:

    James McAvoy does look good.
    Fassy never appealed to me.
    That jumpsuit Jessica is wearing is totally awful.

    JLaw …. I still think she is over rated as an actress.
    And if she is tweaking her face at her young age, its gonna be a hot mess as she ages. Is she even 30?

  11. Lucy says:

    I don’t see any difference. Hoult and McAvoy can get. It.

  12. Tara says:

    I have no idea why everyone is so surprised, she’s tweaked her face for years and had multiple surgeries (nose, eyelids) way before her oscar. Lots of side by side comparisons are here: https://theskincareedit.com/2017/10/20/jennifer-lawrence-before-and-after

    • ToLiveLikeWeRDying says:

      Thank you lol

    • JAC says:

      I was about to link that! Her nose has been looking different for years now.

      • Esmom says:

        It looks like it changed in around 2012. But to me it still looks the same now.

      • Slowsnow says:

        Looks the same to me too.
        Her make-up is dramatically different and she lost a lot of weight (for the wedding? she might be far more conservative than she wants is to believe).

    • Kaye says:

      I just wanted to endorse that skin care edit site as one of the best. I’m usually blind to plastic surgery; I can tell that something was done but I can’t figure out what. The person who runs this site explains things and shows pictures that illustrate exactly what she means.

    • Eve says:

      @Tara:

      Posted links above without seeing yours. My apologies.

    • Emily Gilmore says:

      Just here to say I love the skincare edit! Obsessed with that website and they do the most thorough before/afters

  13. TeddyPicker says:

    I mourn the loss of dark, sexy Fassy. It was a star that burned bright (in my loins) but after seeing various pics of him on this promo tour, it is well and truly extinguished.

    • Steph says:

      I honestly think fassy doesn’t care about acting or Hollywood anymore. His interviews doesn’t seem as exciting anymore.

    • Lucy says:

      Are you familiar with Joe Dempsie? He’s also known as Gendry from GoT, vaguely resembles a young Fassy (but hotter), is very talented and and seems to be a much better person.

  14. AnnaKist says:

    Oh, yes, please. Those fellas…mm-mm!

  15. Notyouraveragehousewife says:

    She does look different. Her nose looks wider and flatter on the bridge. Her eyes look much more open as well. She still looks gorgeous but definitely different.

    • Cee says:

      Her eyes look different because circa Hunger Games she hired a makeup artist. She has small, monolid eyes – no amount of liner will show unless you know where to place the line. You have to create the illusion of a crease in order to open up the eyes, and take advantage of the lower lash line.
      Everything else seems she tweaked but I’m not convinced her eyes were.

  16. LP says:

    I kind of wonder if she’s stoned out of her gourd and that’s partly to blame? She def got work done over the years but I’m wondering how much substances might play a part…I can see her needing it to get through the premiere of a bad movie in a franchise she’s been over for a long time.

  17. Case says:

    Jennifer looks quite different, indeed. I guess that’s why she had to leave Hollywood for a year — so all the changes could settle and people who believe she’s “so relatable” wouldn’t notice, lol. She looks good, but wow. Very different.

  18. Tiffany27 says:

    I actually LOVE Sophie’s dress and hate Jennifer’s. Anyway, this movie looks so painfully terrible.

  19. Len says:

    She is starting to look like Olivia Munn.

  20. Originaltessa says:

    My face changed pretty drastically around her age. You lose the baby fat and features get sharper. I think she got Botox, and that’s it. It’s happening to Miley too. They both had super plump round faces and they’re getting older. It happens.

    • Darla says:

      Agree, mine did too. I think women hit the height of their beauty around 27, 28, and it lasts for however long your genes and taking care of yourself allow.

  21. Tallia says:

    JLaw looks thinner to me, too.

  22. PitaBites says:

    Jennifer looks like Dakota Johnson

  23. Veronica S. says:

    Her nose, I think. The bridge seems different. Kind of a shame, though, that Hollywood convinces these women they constantly need to tweak their faces – and a worse shame that it’s so distracting here when this is easily one of the better dresses she’s worn on the carpet in awhile.

  24. Aenflex says:

    Lips. Mouth area puffier.

  25. Kali says:

    She removed fat from her eyelids, so her eyes would look more open. Unfortunately she just looks aged now.

    PS: I just can’t get over the fact that blonde Sophie Turner could pass as Caitlin FitzGerald (Masters of Sex) younger sister!

  26. Maria TR says:

    She looks just like Kaley Cuoco!

  27. Mere says:

    I think it’s the upper lip. Little bit of filler.

  28. Suz says:

    I wish we could post pics here because some other pics that have come out in the last couple days show she is messing with her face. Which didn’t need messing with because she was stunning just the way she was. Hollywood messes people up. Side note: Nick Hoult is a babe.

  29. Jb says:

    Hmmm so she definitely had work done but I guess par for the Course! At least she’s not telling us how she’s peeing on lawns eating pizza at every meal and ever so clumsy…just like us!! Props to the PR rep who told her to quit that…

  30. Shutterbug says:

    It’s her teeth – like maybe she got veneers or something. Her entire mouth/chin area looks different to me.

  31. Beegirl says:

    yeah, don’t care about this movie but James McAvoy looks like a yummy snack…

  32. otaku fairy... says:

    She’s definitely had something done over the years (plus she’s getting older- her face has been losing some of it’s roundedness since the Hunger Games). But I’m not 100% sure if it’s anything we haven’t seen on her already within the past year? Something does look weird about her mouth though.

  33. TAM says:

    Did she get veneers or something? The mouth area looks a bit different.

  34. shells_bells says:

    Hmmm… a few thoughts…
    Jennifer looks different around the mouth and she’s smiling differently. Maybe some dental work? Maybe that combined with some other things? But I LOVE her dress!!
    Jessica’s shoes are WAY too clunky with the slim pants and I’m usually a bangs defender but hers don’t look like they’re cut well. Mine used to flip out like that after I was inspired after a bottle of wine to cut my own.
    While scrolling through I initially thought Michael was Jon Hamm with new hair.

  35. Loretta says:

    JLaw is stunning, I think she’s loding her baby fat on her face. It happened also to me.

  36. lucy2 says:

    I usually don’t see a lot of the plastic surgery other people claim to, but…she does look different. I think it’s something subtle, and makeup and maturing, but there’s definitely something there. I think she looks great either way, so I hope that’s the end of any changes.

  37. Toniko says:

    Have you seen her no bra/white tshirt look? Jimmy Kimmel arrival? ouch…

  38. Caligrace says:

    It looks like she got new teeth. The film is getting trashed by critics. Congrats on another stinker, Jen!

  39. maxine ducamp says:

    In the first pic, she looks like she could be a missing Olsen sister, but I think that’s down to the eye makeup?

  40. Lady Luna says:

    You forgot to post Farkem, she definitely did something to her face there’s nothing subtle about it. She used to be so pretty!

  41. lily says:

    What is hapening to Fassy is tragic, he lost his sexual energy, his looks, the sparkle in his eyes are gone. He looks depressed and bored, something happens to him. I think he doesn’t care about his career anymore or he is blacklisted for a reason. He said he is in talk to do that western remake with racist jerk Mel Gibson.

    James in the other side, looks so good and yummy. He looks happy and his career is going so well.

    I love Jessica, no matter what she is wearing but her choices for this promo tour werent good.

    Sophie is stunning, i like her. Too bad sh is under contractual obligation with LV, a trashy brand that i dont know why has power and actresses as their image with terrible designs.

    Thanks for the laugh for Nick’s fashion description. He is handsome, in a few years he will be a well known name, i hope so.

  42. tealily says:

    Her nose looks flatter, her chin looks more prominent, her forehead looks botoxy.

  43. Surly Gale says:

    I think she’s had her eyes ‘opened’ and a nose job

  44. KEEKS says:

    she’s just eating the same foreign potatoes that Olivia Munn is eating. LOL

  45. Ann Latta says:

    she had her eye;lids lifted. It’s easy, 4 day recovery. I did it myself.

  46. Kasia says:

    New teeth! And it actually makes her look worse.

  47. Lo says:

    It looks like she had her lips done….not with fillers. The surgery where they pull your upper lip and stitch it under your nose or something of that sort. My mom’s boss had that lip surgery and it looks exactly like this.

  48. MangoAngelesque says:

    I honestly thought she was Kaley Cuoco I the thumbnail…

  49. HC Robinson says:

    It’s the veneers IMO

  50. MrsPanda says:

    I couldn’t pinpoint it from the photos but in video it’s clear her veneers are too big. She had lovely small teeth, as someone with larger teeth I always envy tiny teeth – even though I know big shiny veneers are the Hollywood look. She doesn’t usually set her mouth like that, usually she has a closed-lip or full smile on the red carpet. She’s uncomfortable and not sure how to close her mouth around her new teeth.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AO_XLQlAE1A
    Interesting to see the photos upthread of just how much work she’s had over the years! Overall it’s really good work, she was stunning to begin with and still is. Her forehead looks too waxy though and she’s hit the botox a bit too hard.

  51. ChiaMom says:

    She just Meg Ryan-ed herself – even worse wouldnr know it was her without the tag line

  52. PurpleHoulihan says:

    Botox and fillers in her jaw and under her ears, and waaaaay too much filler in her cheeks and under her eyes. They were too aggressive above her orbital bone, so it looks like her cheeks are going right into her eyes and making them squinty.

  53. Alyse says:

    She looks like she’s lost her expressionism/joy tbh … the smile doesn’t look genuine.

    May just be the photos… but overall looks like some sort of work/tweaking

  54. Godwina says:

    I love the pantsuit with train! It works here, and JC is pulling it off with flair.

  55. TK says:

    She looks half way between renee zellweger and emila clarke, not sure what’s going on!
