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.

HotWingAgenda: dave2198: PapaChester: 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.

So you're saying it retards a child's ability to learn?

...

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."


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

downtownkid: Teufelaffe: Oh, and just to counter the "b-b-but Rue!" and similar comments, I am talking about what the entertainment industry has to say about casting.  Nobody gives a rat's ass what JoeBlow69 blogged about how horrible it was when they cast Hugh Jackman as Wolverine.  The entertainment industry is the source of the "Larwence wasn't skinny enough" comments, not some random dipshiat on Twitter.

Here's a newsflash hotshot: people are cast in large part due to their looks, so weight is an entirely relevant topic when discussing casting choices.  As far as "what the entertainment industry has to say", well, if you aren't in the casting session then you really don't know what they have to say, do you?


Are you seriously this dense?  Nobody said that weight wasn't relevant for that role, just that Hollywood only publicly cares about weight when it's a pretty white female.

Hate to break it to you but the entertainment industry is, in fact, sexist.  That's why in interviews actors get asked questions about the nature of their roles and acting methods, and actresses get asked what their diet is or whether or not they wore underwear under their costume.  It's why female characters in the vast majority of movies only talk about the male characters, while the male characters get to talk about just about anything else.

Think for a moment...you're white-knighting Hollywood, ffs.  The only group you'll find more corrupt and misogynistic in this county is Congress.

StoPPeRmobile: downtownkid: hulk hogan meat shoes: This feels so calculated.

Your world must be a very sad and lonely place.

Why, because he is right?


Yes, she clearly befriended the kid in middle school and kept the relationship going for ten years or so on the off chance that she became famous and would be able to use it as a cheap publicity stunt.

Either that, or maybe you are both cynical and not terribly bright.  One of the two.

No way. That Rolling Stone cover killed more kittens than anything else.

BarkingUnicorn: 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.


Guys love a vulnerable person? RED FLAG PREDATORY BEHAVIOR.

Girls do?
What a wonderfully nurturing person they are.

The Stealth Hippopotamus: thisiszombocom: well god bless that little chubster

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.


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?

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.

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.
