Annnd The Jennifer Lawrence Backlash Begins, Which Means That It’s Time For Her To Go MIA

Jennifer Lawrence Interview Yay


I love Jennifer Lawrence, I think she’s great. Even if her entire personality turns out to be a PR team’s invention, I’ll still love her. With the sole exception of Billy Ray Cyrus, I think we’d all prefer to have her manufactured brand shoved at us instead of someone like Miley Cyrus’. Although to be fair, I will say her “shock ‘n awe” schitck this fall might’ve won her more headlines than Jennifer Lawrence’s “normal gal pal” routine during last year’s awards season.

However yesterday’s announcement that Jennifer Lawrence won a NYFCC supporting actress award for her role in American Hustle means that the tides are about to turn for her. In fact, before that news even got announced, Vulture wrote an article questioning her authenticity. Which quickly got followed up by one on The Wire wondering if she’s about to enter Anne Hathaway territory. You remember what happened to Anne Hathaway during last year’s awards season, right? The entire world decided that they collectively hated her for no real reason. Despite the fact that she’s a talented actress, we all dismissed her as needy and desperate, unworthy of winning any awards. Which in retrospect seems unfair, but at the time seemed totally rational. I would be lying to you if I said Crushable wasn’t in the front of the pack, holding up a torch and singing “kill the beast” as we neared her inevitable Oscars win.

Jennifer Lawrence Yikes


The fact that it looks like Jennifer Lawrence will again be in the awards show spotlight doesn’t bode well for her popularity. We love, love, love watching people rise. But we hate when they get to the top. That’s just humanity for you. The fact that she just wrapped up her Catching Fire press tour and will be starting one for American Hustle very soon makes me extremely nervous. How much of her can we handle before we start to tire of her off-the-cuff interviews? For me personally, it’s a lot. But for the average person, I don’t think it’s that much. We like our candid celebrities in small doses. Give us too much at once and we’re jaded and over it before you can say, “but she talked to us about pooping her pants.” People in our office actually signed yesterday when it got announced that she’d won the NYFCC award. “Again?” seems to be the common refrain in regards to her potentially winning an Oscar again this year.

        You are a shining example of what is wrong with american women.

        Please explain I would really like to hear this. What particularly about my comment do you find “wrong with american women”?

      • esolesek

        OK. Why is it sexist that a major actress is being hated on? What does that have to do with her being a woman? She’s probably being hated on by more women than men anyway. If you’re going to wildly throw a claim of sexism around, then back it up with some sort of proof. Kneejerk calls to sexism are what I call ‘wrong with American women.’

      I’m sorry I just really, really dislike her :( (would definitely not go as far as hate)
      I’ve tried to see her from everybody else’s point of view which seems to be incredibly loving, but I just don’t understand the hype. She doesn’t appear to be funny or witty, and her persona, body language and face do not match the jokes which she tries to pull off.
      Everybody goes wild when she repeatedly falls at the oscars, but again I can’t see why that is so hilariously brilliant?
      I am by no means a troll, and I certainly don’t wish her any harm, but I just fail to see why everyone thinks that she is a comic genious?

      First off, the idea that she gets sold as wildy beautiful is to me preposterous. She is cute and young and has a nice body, but she is very average in the face. Of course, I guess this lets her get away with more than if she had a model’s face. SHe’s got verve and personality, great, but is it backed up with wit and intelligence? I don’t think so. I just think she’s a loud boorish college tomboy. It’s charming for a bit, but then what do you follow it up with? More loudness among waht is supposed to be classy society? Is she good enough to hold the rebel position like a Jack Nicholson? We’ll see. No offense, but Hunger Games is really a pretty stupid couple of movies. Rehashed Logans Run, 70s post-acpocalypse at best, and the sequel is laughably bad. American Hustle, her character is basically herself. Whoopee.

      Anne Hathaway, on the other hand, was truly uniquely beautiful, and had the acting chops,. but struck out a bit tryign to be funny and overly coy and came across as ungenuine. If she played the beotch like Cate Blanchett, it would help her immensely.
      Anne can do gravitas, or she could.

      Lawrence, she’s more like a Gina Davis with less great looks and prob less talent, though she may be getting good fast enough. The butterface just ain’t gonna last.
