I have to wonder if Hoffman dying really hit her hard, and really hammered home that life is short, Hollywood is farked up, and that from time to time you need to take some time for yourself to get your head together. It has to have been a crazy few years for her, and I can see where she would need to just get away from it all so she doesn't self destruct like so many other stars her age.

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.

She's had back-to-back gigs since her breakout in the Hunger Games.  That's a blessing, but it's got to be exhausting.

I get cranky if I spend more than a couple of nights away from my house.  In this case you're talking about three months on location at a clip, plus travel to promote the films.  She has to be nice to a bunch of fans and reporters who ask weird and intrusive questions day and night.

If you want to see a homicide, have someone take my picture when I get off a transatlantic flight.  I will gut that mofo like Game of Thrones Season 3.

Good. Oversaturation is never a good thing.

From TFA:

"Jennifer Lawrence is volunteering as tribute of taking breaks. "

How can people possibly be getting paid to write this crap?

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.


Goddamn, that's sleazy.

It's my fault. I met her a couple weeks ago and we want to build our relationship out of the spotlight

Sucks for the movie going public, but kudos to her. I can't begin to imagine what a whirlwind her life has been like.

My fear is she'll come back rested and be even more awesome.

This is probably a good idea. In fact, I highly recommend she take a vacation to Thailand, where I'd be happy to show her around. :D
