Jennifer Lawrence Is Trolling Us By Wearing What Looks Like An Engagement Ring

Let me ask you a question: what would Hollywood and the media like most in the whole world? And let me give you the answer: for Jennifer Lawrence to get engaged. Which is why I’m pretty sure she’s trolling us by pretending that it’s already happened.

After all, it’s the perfect time for all the rest of us for Jennifer to move on to the next stage in her life! She now has three Oscar nominations under her belt, in addition to two franchises, multiple projects in production simultaneously, and the respect and love of everyone even marginally connected to the industry. Plus, she’s recently gotten back together with her on-again-off-again boyfriend Nicholas Hoult, and everyone loves a Cinderella story like that. If she had any respect for the narrative we have going for her, J-Law would just suck it up and get engaged already. She kind of owes it to us, as her audience, to take her life to the next chapter.

And she seems to know that, too, because when she was photographed out in London recently, I feel like she was totally trolling the paparazzi. Jennifer is currently wearing a turquoise, heart-shaped ring on that finger, and in almost every photo that was taken of her, she’s looking right into the lens with her left hand on full display, including one where she’s flipping off photographers from the backseat of a cab. She seems to dislike paps so much that it honestly wouldn’t surprise me if she’s trying to prank us by intentionally wearing what looks like an engagement ring. You can check out some creepy close-ups over at the Daily Mail.

It’s almost as if she’s challenging us to whip ourselves into a frenzy of speculation over this, and you know what?? I just might!!!! Because on the other hand, isn’t that totally the kind of engagement ring that she would have, instead of a regular old diamond like everyone else? All I’m saying is that we may never know, and I’m pretty sure J-Law wants it that way.

Nice work, Lawrence. Very nice.

    I always thought she was too cool to flip off the pap

    • dan

      She has flipped them off plenty of times. Good for her. They are scum.

    • Alexis Rhiannon

      So why is she sinking to their level by flipping them off?

    • M.

      Nope…good for her. God knows I flip the bird at least two or three times a day when driving in and out of town (defensive driving in N.J….scary stuff!). If some low life pap said something nasty to me or mine, I might flip the bird myself! (LOL!).

    • Alexis Rhiannon

      I think actual defensive driving probably has more to do with keeping both hands on the wheel than it does with telling other drivers to fuck off via your fingers.

    • Isabelle

      I have hardly ever flipped anyone off but it’s strange to me how people think sticking a finger up or cursing is so offensive but countless of other disrespectful and inconsiderate things happen all the time but are somehow considered socially acceptable.

    • Ria

      I flip the English or Canadian bird, those go over most people’s heads:)

    • MCR

      She’d have to do a lot worse before she reaches their level.

    • Alexis Rhiannon

      I know, it really bugs me that she does that.

    • boywithbluehanger

      I just think it’s unclassy. And if she’s someone who cares about public perception (I’m sure her manager/publicist does), then she probably should rethink doing stuff like that.

    • Alexis Rhiannon

      Absolutely. Bottom line, it’s disrespectful. And if other celebrities are able to find a way of working around it or registering their concerns about the paparazzi in different ways, then J-Law should be able to as well.

    • boywithbluehanger

      “Go ‘head, gurl!” You sound like someone’s momma!…And yeah, I agree.

    • Sam

      Oh good, I already started thinking you might be sick or something with no snarking at JLaw or anything but here we go. Happy to see it was just something temporary, insanity maybe.

  • psb

    Who cares about the ring? The most important thing is that they had dinner with Tom Ford. Please JLaw ditch Dior and make a deal with him.

    • Alexis Rhiannon

      I care about the ring!

  • Lauren

    As much as I would love for her to get engaged to Nicholas Holt because they’re adorable, I’m not sure if the ring means anything. I wear rings on that finger a lot just because they fit that finger better, so she might be doing the same thing.

    • Alexis Rhiannon

      Then my follow-up conspiracy theory is — DOES SHE NOT HAVE A RIGHT HAND???

  • markmywords

    JLaw strikes me as the kind who just wears stuff ’cause she feels like it. But since she is a public persona with PR consultants etc, you might have a point. She’s a bubbly personality, so I guess if she was really engaged, she’d be gushing about it. This would make big news and I haven’t heard anything like that.
    But the ring aside, is the last picture a recent one? Because she looks there like she paid Kidman’s physician a visit…

  • Jodie S

    I don’t think she’s engaged, if she is good for her but tbh it’s none of our business anyway, also If a grown ass woman wants to flip off some people taking pictures of her then so be it, at the end of the day does it really matter or make difference in your life.

  • Jenny50

    She looks legitimately pissed at the person taking the picture and seems like the type that might eventually snap under the constant pressure of the paps following her everywhere. I could imagine how terrible it would. Imagine if you couldn’t even go out of the house with a piece of jewelry you liked on without being stalked by photogs with having the pictures of you showing your annoyance with them (flicking them off) sparking an online conversation that you were secretly engaged because you are wearing a ring while out in public, thus assuring that more paparazzi will stalk your every move because you”might” be “secretly engaged.” That would be miserable.

    • Elizabeth Aspen

      Oh please. Wah wah wah. If she and other celebrities don’t like it, either get out of the business or give back the millions. I can name a handful of people who after a six-year recession, still can’t find a job, so these over-paid celebs get no sympathy from me.

      And if she would ignore their insults and just smile instead of getting pissed off, they would realize they aren’t getting the picture they want and eventually lay off her. There’s a reason the paps are all over morons like Alec Baldwin – because he gives them what they want by blowing his top. That’s what they’re doing to her too and she’s giving in to it.

  • NickNack

    That looks nothing like an engagement ring. Before I was married, I used to wear rings on my left hand all the time. I preferred it to my right because I write hand, and the rings just bothered me. Also, apparently the paps said something really offensive to her when she left that restaurant. No word yet on what it was that upset her so much. Probably something about what Lindsay Lohan said about her sleeping her way to the top.

      *because I write with my right hand

  • HerlindaRusso

    The Engagement ring is showing as a very Precious by the Jennifer Lawrence.

  • Isabelle

    Her finger is like “BA BOOM!” It’s one of the best flip of the birds I’ve ever seen.

  • Elizabeth Aspen

    I don’t know when a turquoise ring became known as an engagement ring.
