8 Times Jennifer Lawrence Was Just The Greatest: From Coat-Gate To Getting Naked In Kris Jenner’s Wardrobe
If there’s any doubting the awesomeness of Jennifer Lawrence here here are eight times she was just totally amazing...
Jennifer Lawrence has to be one of the most likeable celebs in Hollywood. In fact she’s basically one of the coolest humans on the planet! From her political activism to her Kardashians obsession, we love this Oscar-winning star for so many reasons… but here are eight of the best!
You have to watch Sophie, Olivia and Lateysha talk sex for That’s What She Said!
1. She’ll aways speak out about sexism
When Jen wore just a dress to a Red Sparrow photocall in London the internet called sexism because all the men in the picture were in coats. Yeah, cause AS IF anyone could force Jen to go coatless when she didn't want to.
She soon spoke out to defend of herself, and called out the controversy as totally sexist by posting an incredible statement on Facebook.
“Wow. I don't really know where to get started on this ‘Jennifer Lawrence wearing a revealing dress in the cold’ controversy. This is not only utterly ridiculous, I am extremely offended. That Versace dress was fabulous, you think I'm going to cover that gorgeous dress up with a coat and a scarf? I was outside for 5 minutes. I would have stood in the snow for that dress because I love fashion and that was my choice.
“This is sexist, this is ridiculous, this is not feminism. Over- reacting about everything someone says or does, creating controversy over silly innocuous things such as what I choose to wear or not wear, is not moving us forward. It's creating silly distractions from real issues. Get a grip people. Everything you see me wear is my choice. And if I want to be cold THATS MY CHOICE TOO!”
2. We’re obsessed with her Kardashians obsession
Jennifer has made no apologies about her Keeping Up With The Kardashians obsession (not that she should), and she’s so dedicated to the lives of our favourite reality TV family that she even dedicated a whole area on the set of her movie Mother to making sure she could literally keep up with KUWTK.
“It was a tent that had pictures of the Kardashians and Keeping Up With The Kardashians playing on a loop. And gumballs. My happy place,” she told Vogue.
And director and on/off boyfriend Darren Aronofski’s opinion of her ‘happy place’? “He just finds it so vastly disappointing,” she admitted. But it didn’t stop her from watching.
And for that we salute you, Jen.
3. She literally started a chant about equal pay for women at an Oscar’s party
At the ninth Annual Women in Film Pre-Oscar Party J-Law used her influence to throw a spotlight on the issue of equal pay for women.
Following on from Patricia Arquette’s speech about her change.org/era petition on the Equal Rights Amendment, Jen used her voice to support the cause.
“I'm a huge fan of Patricia Arquette. I actually played the younger version of her [on the crime show Medium]. I love that she stood up for starting a conversation. We're getting dialogue going. I'm going to go home, and I'm going to go to change.org/era. Let's all do it,” ET quoted her as saying.
She then started up a chant: “Equal pay, woo,” she demanded. Yes, Jen! Yes!
4. She got so freaked out about her sex scene with Chris Pratt that she got really drunk first
It is literally part of Jen’s job that she has to kiss other actors on camera, but when she had to do a sex scene with Chris Pratt for their movie Passengers she was totally freaked out. So she dealt with it by getting “really, really drunk.”
And the reason Jen just couldn’t deal? Chris was married at the time.
“It was going to be my first time kissing a married man, and guilt is the worst feeling in your stomach. And I knew it was my job, but I couldn't tell my stomach that,” she told the Hollywood Reporter.
“It was just very vulnerable. And you don't know what's too much. You want to do it real, you want everything to be real, but then... That was the most vulnerable I've ever been. It was weird. And everything was done right; nobody did anything wrong. It's just a bizarre experience,” she added.
Honestly, could ultra-respectful Jen be any more awesome?
5. Joking about falling over as she accepted her Oscar
Actual worst nightmare situation. When Jen tripped up the steps on the way to collect her Best Actress Oscar for her role in Silver Linings Playbook she actually managed to make a joke out of it during her acceptance speech - rather than hiding in the hole in the ground that we would have summoned up if we’d been in her shoes.
“Thank you so much. This is nuts. You guys are only standing up because I fell and you feel bad. That was embarrassing,” she said in her speech. Proving that she can totally laugh at herself and is thefore awesome!
6. The time she got naked in Kris Jenner’s closet
While most people want to keep their drunken antics private, J-Law was more than happy to tell the world about the time she was starkers in Kris Jenner’s wardrobe.
While interviewing Kim Kardashian as a stand-in host on Kimmy Kimmel Live! the oscar winning actress reminisced with the reality TV star; “I remember getting naked in your mom’s closet and ordering you to dress me,” she said. “I looked amazing. Is my memory correct? Did you call Kanye to come up in the closet? Did you want him to style me?”
“You said, ‘I’m not joking! I really want Kanye to style me’. And so I said, ‘OK,’ and then I come back in and you’re fully butt naked,” added Kim.
Which, TBF, is probably how we’d all end up if we ever got into the Kardashian mansion.
7. Her total awks/lol flirting with Jack Nicholson
We are living for Jen’s amazing reaction and facial expressions during this post-Oscar’s interview that actual Hollywood legend Jack Nicholson gatecrashed.
Jack: “You did such a beautiful job! I don't mean to crash your interview.”
Jennifer: “Yeah, you're being really rude.”
Jack: “Enjoy the night. I loved you in the movie. It was great. You look like an old girlfriend of mine.”
Jennifer: “Oh really? Do I look like a new girlfriend?”
Jack: “I thought about it.”
Jennifer: “Is he still here?”
Jack: “I'll be waiting!”
8. She’s taking political activism seriously
Jen could just spend her days making movies and polishing her many, many awards - but of course she’s way cooler and engaged than that. Earlier this month she announced that she’s teamed up with a political organisation called Represent.Us and would be taking a year off work to help get young people into politics.
“It doesn't have anything to do with partisan [politics]. It's just...trying to pass state laws that can help prevent corruption [and] fix our democracy,” she told Entertainment Tonight of her new career move.
And she’ll be focusing her attention on “getting young people engaged politically on a local level.”
Which is such a great use of her time and influence.
