Down syndrome does not make you retarded! It is a severe learning disability, many times accompanied by other, much more severe forms of mental handicaps.

This is a non story except for the fact that she is a stereotypical, amazingly hot female American.

PapaChester: This is a non story except for the fact that she is a stereotypical, amazingly hot female American.


I don't know.  The more I learn about her, the more I wish more people in Hollywood were like her.  People pick on her about her weight, and her response is a hearty "Fark you!"  She takes her family on vacations.  She works hard to learn even the crazy, tiny, probably unnecessary things for the roles she takes (I mean, learning to skin and cook little critters for her role in The Hunger Games was going above and beyond).  She just seems like a really decent person, and there aren't many of those in that business of sad, shallow people.

It seems to me that she's anything but stereotypical.

Of course, she's young, and who knows?  She could still go all Lohan on us.

I would disappoint her so hard. Sorry, Alison Brie.

Actually it appears to be completely true.  I've seen this story on local news and in newspapers (in the Louisville area) since her TV days.

Not so much, or this story would have been published before the votes were in.

The more I learn about this woman, the more I love her.  And I'm sure the same will be true of her feelings for me, after the restraining order expires.

Guys "love" Jen because she's vulnerable and that stirs the predator in them.

She's a good person, but she has obvious inferiority/insecurity issues.  Ripe for the picking.

If not, 3 months tied up in your dungeon will sort her out.

In a world full of Lindsey Lohans, can't we just appreciate a Jennifer Lawrence?

Well, I know who that kid is fapping to at night.
 
2013-02-24 11:16:49 PM
I love her and I love this story. I also love that she's a big ol' nerd. She quoted The First Wives' Club in her Golden Globes acceptance speech and it was so obscure it got reported as a gloating slam on Meryl Streep unbecoming of a winner, rather than as a totally fun pop culture reference.

Some high school girls like the security of a male friend who clearly isn't going to rape them?  I'm shocked.

No one said she was fat, people said she was to large to play someone damn near staved to death.

I agreed with those people.

Or maybe it's just that she's crazy hot.

DAMMIT she didn't deserve to win for this. By comparison, Marissa Tomei is Vanessa Redgrave.

Isn't it funny that Hollywood only seems to care about casting someone "physically appropriate" for a role when the character is supposed to be a skinny white female?

Guys love a vulnerable person? RED FLAG PREDATORY BEHAVIOR.

Girls do?
What a wonderfully nurturing person they are.

Pretty much. No one noted that the boys looked muscular and healthy as well.

I will help her up. Way up.

So, playing a slutty manic pixie dream girl makes you a lock for an Oscar nod. If Audrey doesn't take one home, Lawrence can go pound sand for the Bollywood scripted movie she was in.


Seriously "I started farking guys because the police officer husband I had, that I didn't have much sex with, was killed because he was driving home with some Victoria's Secret underwear that he bought at King of Prussia for me, then got run over in a geographically unlikely accident" is a pretty weak cause for nymphomania.

The movie was a standard rom-com, no more, no less. I enjoyed it just fine. Perhaps there could have been some use for the DeNiro arc if something happened when the indian psychiatrist showed up at the house when the hero was arrested and got to observe his dad. NOPE. Was there much point to Lawrence getting totally shiatfaced when she found out the ex-wife was showing up? NOPE, turns out she dances just fine when hammered.

Also, she takes a liking to the main character for absolutely zero reason that anyone can fathom. I mean, she really likes dick, from anyone that can give it to her, and she stalks him, no matter how much he tries to chase her off. Is she the Oscar equivalent to a female Forrest Gump?

If Lawrence has an Oscar for this award, I don't see any reason why Fairuza Balk doesn't have 5 academy awards.

ExperianScaresCthulhu: Shostie: Goddamn this woman has a phenomenal publicist.


It was originally an article in their local paper. The Mail just picked it up. Plus- I mean, she spends time over at this man's house and mails him memorabilia. That's all her.

She always comes across as really normal, down to earth and intelligent. I think it's because it's actually true.

Glad I wasn't the only one to do a double take on that.  It's like saying, "That's no woman!  It's a human being with 2 X chromosomes and no Y chromosome, also boobs and no penis."

I think back to the incredible moron I was at 22 and she seems amazingly composed and self aware.
