Even as far back as when I started acting at 14, I know I’ve never considered failure.– Jennifer Lawrence
We all need a best friend like Jennifer Lawrence. A wiseass masquerading as a badass.
Even Brie Larson, who won the Best Actor Oscar for her performance in Room in 2016, called Lawrence for some advice.
And what Lawrence said changed her perspective on acting completely.
“Lawrence said well yeah, it doesn’t change anything. You still mess up and people will still judge you. They are human too like you.”
Lawrence was one of the youngest winners of the Best Actor Oscar for her performance in ‘Silver Linings Playbook’ in 2013. How badass is that? But in case you need more proof, here are some examples:
Lawrence takes on Hollywood Sexism
In 2015, Lawrence wrote an open letter to the Hollywood elite and asked a simple question: ‘Why am I paid less than my male actor counterparts?’
This letter was written after Sony Pictures’ email was hacked and the fact that female actors are paid lesser than their male counterparts came to the forefront.
“I didn’t get mad at Sony. I got mad at myself. I failed as a negotiator because I gave up early,” she said.
In her essay for Lena Dunham’s website Lenny, she did not hold back in sharing her perspectives with everyone.
“When it comes to the subject of feminism, I’ve remained ever-so-slightly quiet. I don’t like joining conversations that feel like they’re ‘trending.’ I’m even the as**** who didn’t do anything about the ice-bucket challenge — which was saving lives — because it started to feel more like a ‘trend’ than a cause.” (sic)
Now, that is what we all need in a best friend. Someone who is honest and vulnerable, always.
Meet Jennifer Lawrence, the wiseass
Though Lawrence won her Oscar for her acting prowess, she won everyone’s heart in 2018 by jumping over chairs and juggling wine.
And she does not hold not back on her honesty when speaking to the journalists either.
When asked in 2013: ‘whether she worries about peaking too early in her career after winning the Oscar,’ her inner wiseass came to the fore.
“Well, before you asked me the question, I did not even think about it. But thanks. Now I cannot stop thinking about it,” she replied.
Journalists who interview her now always err on the side of caution, though most have a blast when interviewing her.
Her candidness and her sly humour always wins hearts but she is sure to shut down any sexist questions when asked.
Jennifer Lawrence, the badass
Have you ever heard of a leading actor, in the prime of their career, taking some time off to pledge time for social work?
Well, Lawrence has done just that.
Besides being extremely vocal of Hollywood’s sexism issue and being an ardent supporter of the #MeToo movement, she has chosen to take a year off to assist a grassroots anti-corruption organization.
