    She is class! AND she is super fun! We all said last night that we want to invite her over for beers and fart jokes. She just seems laid back and HUMBLE! (take notes Hathaway)

    Never seen anyone fall so gracefully. I don’t know any young screen actors I’m happy for her. Speaking of “young”–Jane Fonda looked wonderful. I’ll be as slim as Fonda when I’m 71. ‘Course I’ll have been dead for about 14 years, but I’ll be slim.

    She’s very likeable in interviews, funny and self-deprecating, without much of a filter between brain and mouth. Her appearance on David Letterman to promote Silver Linings Playbook was great, with plenty of those off-the-cuff responses that are awkward, funny, and endearing. Letterman seems smitten with her. (The interview is on YouTube if you haven’t seen it.)

    I wish I wasn’t this old, but I remember Carol Burnett falling up the steps when she won her first Emmy. It was good luck for her. I wish Jennier the same luck.

    @DERRICK: Nice call-out about Fonda. She was arguably best dressed of the evening. Perfectly tailored, bold color choice, etc. Yellow almost always seems to work well live and on tv (Witherspoon, Williams, Kidman, Blanchett have all done famously well with it). I’m surprised more don’t wear it.

    For the record, I have seen rumours about Jennifer Lawrence not always being exactly the nicest person in the world, but the comments that are typically pointed to as proof that she’s homophobic and/or transphobic actually come across more like she’s not always necessarily thinking through all the possible interpretations of what she says, and not like she’s deliberately trying to be hurtful to the queerfolk. Not like that entirely lets her off the hook for what she says, of course, but there *is* a big difference between deliberate homophobia and occasionally speaking without thinking about the fact that you might be accidentally communicating something you didn’t quite intend.

    Then, of course, there’s the fact that when I Googled “Jennifer Lawrence homophobic” just now, the very first post that comes up gives examples — like calling herself fat, and talking about how much money she makes, and saying maybe not necessarily the nicest thing in the world about Jesse Eisenberg’s OCD — that have absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with homophobia of any sort.

    OK, here’s where the “homophobia” BS got started. JL was a guest on the Ellen show and she was talking about her new cat. She originally thought the cat was male because it had “a very masculine energy” (whatever that means), but the cat turned out to be female, so she said she and her brothers nicknamed it “Chaz Bono,” implying it was transgender. The real Chaz Bono got his Y-fronts in a twist about it and other trans activists joined in.

    It was a dumb thing to say perhaps, but she’s young and it was a joke, not a deliberate attempt to be hurtful or mean. So far as I can tell that’s the only “homophobic” thing she’s said.

  8. Craig S says

    Caliban, the other one that gets pointed to is that she once said in an interview that she was kind of “dykey” as a child, in the sense that she was tomboyish and played sports.

    Which, again, not really all that homophobic unless you’re consciously determined to interpret it that way.

    Why is it that they dress those women with such extreme and over the top dresses/costumes and later they pretend that they walk and even handle stairs? Being detached from reality comes at a price.

    Gotta give it to those gay guys who every day stand proud and firm defending their favorite multi-million dollar white Hollywood princess’ disgusting and sick comments.

  11. markt says

    She’s young and the comments on this list alone give one an idea of the gauntlets she has in front of her. She apparently must satisfy the standards of a god or else she’s Eva Braun – nothing allowed in-between. Maybe fame isn’t all it’s cracked-up to be.

  12. Bob says

    THE DRESS — meant for the runway, not meant for maneuvering through a theater or climbing stairs. When I saw her on the Red Carpet, I thought she had 3 quilted bedpads around her legs –it looks heavy! However, what girl would turn down a Dior Couture dress that costs more than most earn in year?
