I have one thing on my mind right now and that is how I’m going to be seeing Catching Fire in a few hours.
I like to make a point to go to the midnight premieres of fun movies – just makes it more of a celebration – an event. We all know how much I love celebrating everything I possibly can! But, I’ve been feeling old lately and when my friend Ashley and I went to go buy our tickets back in September, I was SO HAPPY that they also had an 8 p.m. showing tonight, before it is “officially” released nationwide tomorrow.
This means I can get home and into my PJ’s and get all snuggled up at a reasonable hour. It also means I won’t only get a few hours of sleep and have a very long Friday at work.
So, like every other woman in America I LOVE Jennifer Lawrence. I thought she was amazing in Winter’s Bone, rocks it out in Hunger Games, and stole my heart in Silver Lining’s Playbook. In spite of being in a blockbuster trilogy and winning an Oscar she appears to be so down to earth, funny, and NORMAL. I have no doubt in my mind that if she was my next door neighbor we’d be best friends.
I would love to sit around in sweats all day with her eating cheesy fries and watching reality TV.
I also love the fact that she’d probably roll her eyes at what I just said.
There are countless articles, buzzfeed lists, and gifs out there highlighting the hilarity of Jennifer Lawrence. She just keeps the funny coming! I feel the more famous she becomes, the harder she tries to make sure her “real” self is shining through.
So, today, I’m simply sharing some of my favorite JLaw quotes and gifs because she is just so fun and real. See you tonight girl!
On making movies: “Not to sound rude, but [acting] is stupid. Everybody’s like, ‘How can you remain with a level head?’ And I’m like, ‘Why would I ever get cocky? I’m not saving anybody’s life. There are doctors who save lives and firemen who run into burning buildings. I’m making movies. It’s stupid.'” – Vanity Fair
“If I don’t have anything to do all day, I might not even put my pants on.” – Glamour magazine
I too plan my days around my meals. “What is for dinner?” is my first thought after finishing lunch.
On the contents of her Oscars purse: “Candy, almonds, my phone, a Baby Ruth, Laffy Taffy.”
Woody Harrelson, recalls his first meeting with the actress for the mag: “I was on my bus, and on my bus I have a yoga swing. Jennifer comes on, and she goes, ‘Hi, Woody, I’m J– is that a sex swing?’ Her first sentence to me.”
On an early Abercrombie & Fitch photo shoot: “None of my pictures ended up getting used, and when my dad called to ask why, they sent over the negatives — like, here’s why! All the other girls are looking cute, modeling while playing football, and my face is bright red, my nostrils are flared, and I’m mid-leap, about to tackle this girl, like, ‘Rahhrrr!’ I’m not even looking at the camera. The other girls were like, ‘Get her away from me!’”
On red carpet appearances:“It’s so scary. And then I end up getting so nervous that I get like [I am] now. I get really hyper. [Squeals.] So then I go in interviews and I’m like, ‘I’m like a chihuahua! I’m shaking and peeing!’ And then afterwards, I’m like, ‘I just talked about peeing on the red carpet.’”
“We have the ability to control this image that young girls are going to be seeing,” she explained. “Girls see enough of this body that we’ll never be able to obtain . . . It’s an amazing opportunity to rid ourselves of that in this industry. And also, I think, it’s better to look strong and healthy. I feel like somebody like Kate Moss running at you with a bow and arrow wouldn’t really be scary.”
Don’t you go changing!
