Could Jennifer Lawrence be the female version of Ryan Gosling? A magical celebrity who manages to give amazing interview after amazing interview after amazing interview. We usually tire of seeing the same celebrities night after night making the talk show rounds during their publicity runs, But J.Law keeps delivering quality quotes that makes us want to turn her into a human meme. I’m not even sure what being a human meme would entail, but I’ve just never met someone who’s so lovable AND so gif-able.
Last night she stopped by The Late Show with David Letterman to discuss what she said about Meryl Streep when she won her Golden Globe this past Sunday. As you may have heard from the mobs that stormed her house Beauty & The Beast style, she triumphantly said “I beat Meryl” as she accepted her award. While it sounded like a flippant remark from a young actress, it’s actually a quote from the classic ’90s revenge film The First Wives Club.
Of course she doesn’t hate Meryl Streep. No one hates Meryl Streep. But she does hate idiotic Americans who crucify her on Twitter for a simple misunderstanding. So sorry everyone who overreacted to this moment, you’re on her bad side now. And in case you don’t remember from her groundbreaking 2012 documentary The Hunger Games, she kills people who cross her.
