Has she gone transgender?  Because otherwise she's a heroine.

Jennifer has a diarrhea of the mouth thing that I'm sure will make for some interesting shenanigans as she gets older and less employed.

How can anyone be surprised ?  If you've ever heard her speak (and she speaks a lot), she's clearly a self-obsessed idiot.

She did an interview with the "I Was There Too" podcast.
And, wow, she comes across as such an awesome person. Very down to earth and humble. A character actor through and through.

Jennifer Lawrence is a good actor (and very attractive) but kind of an empty vessel based on the few interviews I've seen and the company she keeps. So I'm not surprised she thinks she's a trailblazer on an interstate highway.

NOPE, NOPE, NOPE!
Not even a little bit, and f*ck right off with the "hive-mind" bullshiat. *You* go back and read what she said. If she wants to be an advocate more power to her but she needs to get her facts straight and think before she shoots off the cuff.
Go back and read what she said. It sure as f*ck sounds like she's fronting at being the first female action star.

The quote from TFA:
"I remember when I was doing Hunger Games, nobody had ever put a woman in the lead of an action movie because it wouldn't work - because we were told girls and boys can both identify with a male lead, but boys cannot identify with a female lead," she explained to..."

A hilarious example of not helping. That's some Kanye Wes/ Sean Penn level of being up your own ass

Reading that, as quoted from TFA, how exactly are we reading that wrong? Seems to say exactly what the headline says to my mind.

You are correct. There was a whole franchise: Alien. Segourney Weaver. Even the Alien was a female.

Yup, that was the first one that came to mind as well. It's just so blatantly incorrect.

Alien was not an action movie.

Aliens was an action movie and Weaver was certainly the star, but she wasn't an action star by any means.

Farkers are posting random actresses.  I mean, Pris from Blade Runner?  Daryl Hannah is only in a few scenes and farking dies in her one big action sequence.

Dude, dude, seriously neither were The Hunger Games. You know what'd be the best move? Instead of going down the path of trying to weasel the argument?
Admit she put her foot deep inside her mouth and move on.

There were three movies in the franchise, the second of which was named Aliens, which I guess is the keystone for your pedantry.

Weaver was literally central to all of the action in all three of them, and there was no male counterpart to her role...no Arnold like in Terminator, which is the only reason I would not bring Linda Hamilton into the discussion though she deserves it.

If we need to rely on pedantry to defend JLs assertion, face it, she's wrong. And she won't sleep with you. Just like Sigourney won't sleep with me.

There were more than three movies in the franchise, however people like to forget a coupler of them.

Even though Weaver was the star, she was part of the ensemble who played the marines in Aliens.  The marines carried the action sequences, not Weaver.

And the first one was horror.  And after Aliens, the entire series got quite dodgy.  Some people think they are terrible, but I still like them.  Especially the one with Ron Perlman.

It ain't pedantry.  Also I don't care either way about Lawrence and I thought the Hunger Games movies were kind of silly.

I just think it's absolutely crazy to be railing on her like some farkers are doing in this thread and I also think it's hilarious to post characters like Pris and think they were the equivalent to Katniss.
