We don’t know what our problem is today. Normally we love Jennifer Lawrence‘s brutally honest, self-deprecating sense of humor. Maybe it’s just having been around our families for the holidays, but JLaw’s recent comments to Vanity Fair and South Africa Marie Claire make us want to wrap her in a Slanket and feed her delicious soups while watching our Christmas DVDs. In addition to calling herself “vastly uneducated,” the Catching Fire star told Vanity Fair “There are doctors who save lives and firemen who run into burning buildings. I’m making movies. It’s stupid.” While we all agree medicine and firefighting are pretty much the most important jobs in society, give yourself some credit, Jennifer! You already have an Oscar nomination. How “uneducated” can you be? How meaningless your life goals?
Maybe we’re just still feeling sensitive about Jennifer’s comments to South Africa Marie Claire last week. “I’d rather look chubby on screen and like a person in real life,” Lawrence said about her weight. Whaaaaa? JLaw? Chubby? Is there literally no way to stop Hollywood from brainwashing people into thinking they are overweight? Even when those people are literally paragons of physical perfection?
