Persnickety: stoli n coke: darkjezter: Epic Fap Session: Yeah. Oscar winners have a hard time finding gigs.Ever hear of the Oscar Curse? Actors and Actresses who win Oscars for their performances often suffer slumps in their careers afterwards. It happened to Cuba Gooding Jr, Mira Sorvino, Helen Hunt, F Murray Abraham, Louise Fletcher, etc.Helen Hunt didn't experience the so-called Oscar slump for nearly a decade after winning, and F. Murray Abraham has averaged 2 movies a year since his win 30 years ago, not to mention countless theatre gigs. I wouldn't consider them part of the jinx.It's not any sort of curse that is the issue. Hollywood and especially the Hollywood press are both ravenous beasts and must be fed constantly. The only thing worse than being in a bad movie or getting bad press is not being in any movie or getting no press at all. The moment they stop talking about you is the moment when some other up and coming actress gets the spotlight and all that goes with it: good movie roles and the buzz reporting that makes you desirable to producers.Getting off the treadmill means accepting a big pay cut for when you decide to get back on but somehow I think Jennifer Lawrence isn't the type to go all Justin Bieber and blow it all. She'll probably be fine.
James Rieper: If you read the Daily Mail, they did a thing a year ago. Lawrence checked into a high-end hotel in Hawaii (I think) and had a girls weekend with a buddy she had flown in. So they hung out, had a glass of red wine, and smoked a joint. Of course a photographer booked a room in the adjoining hotel, then took photographs of them through the windows and on the balcony. Published the next day.Gets worse.Stage 2 of this was the Mail calling up Lawrence's mother and tipping her off that she was smoking pot. She called Lawrence the next day and they had a screaming fight over the phone -- which was again photographed through the windows by the same guy. Published the next day.She hasn't been off this ride in about two years. I could see taking a few months, even if it means her career cools off a little.
