Jennifer Lawrence Just Wishes She Wasn’t So Goddamn Famous All The Time

Jennifer Lawrence attending Catching Fire New York premiere November 2013Jennifer Lawrence is starting to get the beginnings of some backlash for being so goddamn famous all the time, but according to her, that’s the furthest thing from her mind. While you’re all sitting at home obsessively ranking her outfit choices for the Catching Fire red carpets, equipping your Tumblr with the perfect J-Law GIFs, and putting the final touches on your Hunger Games fanfic, Jenn pretty much just wants to be a normal human being instead of a celebrity. Aka YOU’RE WRECKING IT.

After doing, what? Like five huge movies in a little over two years, she’s a little tired of being your go-to adorable celebrity, and she wants to be able to quirkily order that Budweiser she’s craving in a dive bar without everyone immediately commenting on how cute and quirky it is that she drinks Budweisers and goes to dive bars. As she told USA Today:

“I’ve built my career. I need to build my human life. I need to get a house and connect to the people around me and not work for a little while. I just get allergic to that kind of thing. People treating you differently when you don’t feel any differently is really alienating. You can see, the way they look at you. I can see if that was who I surrounded myself with, that’s why you change. I find people who don’t change. That’s where I get my reality.”

You guys, we’ve all changed. Jenn asked us not to, but we did it anyway. And now we can all go to a casual drunk brunch in the middle of the day ever again because one of us has a stupid old Oscar and will probably get another one in 2014 for American Hustle. LOOK WHAT YOU DID.

      I can understand why she feels that way. The past few years have probably been so crazy for her. It’ll be interesting to see if she really does take a break from working.

      • Daisy

        I agree with you…it’s been crazy for her and Lawrence is handling it very well.

      • Simmers

        Handling popularity is not difficult, handling hate well is difficult.

      • Diana

        Well said.

      • Simmers

        She should take a break, learn some more expressions, come back and prove that she really deserved this years Oscar.

      Wow, a couple of articles come out claiming that Jennifer Lawrence is about to face major backlash from the public and now apparently Crushable wants to be able to throw the first stone! Way to continue the cycle of backlashing against successful women! I’m not really sure why I bother to read this website any more.

      • Daisy

        Exactly!…also, where exactly is the backlash coming from???. A couple articles that write that there COULD possibly be, you know, some kind of, impending something or other…you just wait!, it’s coming!. Knock it off ladies, you guys are better than this. There’s no backlash, just unnecessary articles like this one. What a waste of space this article is (LOL!).

    • AntioneYeh

      She is very nice thought express that she does not always famous .she is spend the life simple and sober .

    • Joshua Skye

      Well then Miss Lawrence, back out of the spotlight and let one of the millions of others that WANT to be famous have their turn. I’ve never believed you were anything special to begin with.

      i really used to love ithis site. but nowadays.. what a hypocrite it has become. on another article (i think written by jenni) it says people, especially women, should stop backlashing another women, especially since it happens mostly out of jealousy. but a few articles, including this one, actually STARTS the backlashing. because to be honest, i haven’t read any article that backlashes jennifer.

      • Jenni

        I think one of the great things about Crushable is that while we’re all educated young women in our 20s, we do have different opinions. Just because I write something doesn’t mean that’s how everyone here feels. In the office (and this is insider info here), these kinds of editor disagreements often lead to pretty good discussions and debates. Assuming everyone can stay civil in the comment section, it’s usually interesting to see where the conversation ends up. After all, we’re disagreeing on things like “is this celebrity overrated?” and “is this movie worth seeing?” — and not anything super serious.

        With that said we value all our readers and do try to make sure that our core values remain consistent throughout the site so that they know what to expect from us. We read each comment and take criticism seriously — so thank you for sharing.

        It doesnt matter which site they are published on. I can see there are so many other people Do agree with the backlash thing and the fact that she’s overrated.

    • Lydia

      Oh I dont know. I always wondered what made the academy give the best actress oscar to this good but not so great actress when there were other better deserving nominees.

    • Peter

      I’m confused, why is she so GODDAMN famous all the time?
      Who are they making her so famous?
      Teenagers perhaps (at least mentally)…

    • Simmers

      What made nearly 6000 members (or I dont know, may be more or less) of academy give the oscar to this `moderately good actress?

    • Mist Gibbs

      We cannot always have the best of both worlds. So I think Ms. Lawrence has to choose between popularity and simple life.

      That last paragraph is a doozy of crappy writing. At least Lainey manages to do a better job actually being snarky while not being such a shit writer. Up your game guys!

    • Amanda

      Basically you guys, this article wants you to think that it’s Lawrence fault that she got an Oscar. Oh man! How dare she be so good at her job that the majority of 3500 AMPA voters voted for her? Jeez, man. And now she wants a to go live her life…. and acknowledges that she needs to get away from the spotlight… which is what you wrote an article about two weeks ago… but know that she said so… somehow she the reviewer is trying to say she is actually ungrateful for doing so. Right.
