Jennifer Lawrence Misplaces Her Oscar

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Features

Jennifer LawrenceJennifer Lawrence has misplaced her Oscar.

The 23-year-old actress won the prestigious Best Actress Academy Award earlier this year for her role as Tiffany Maxwell in Silver Linings Playbook, in which she starred alongside Bradley Cooper.

But the down-to-earth star insists the accolade hasn't changed her life and she's doesn't even know where the statuette is at the moment: "I don't know where it is. I think it might be in Kentucky. I hope it's in Kentucky. If not, it's gone. I don't have it."

The Hollywood star - who also earned an Oscar nomination for her unflinching performance as Ree in the 2010 flick Winter's Bone - is now getting ready for the release of blockbuster sequel The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Jennifer plays all-action heroine Katniss Everdeen, but she admits she was worried about developing trench foot when she had to shoot some tricky scenes in a swamp with co-star Josh Hutcherson. "That was the worst scene. We were in the swamp for days. I'm paranoid about everything and Josh was talking about trench foot and toe fungus when we were in the swamp. He was like, 'Yeah that's what happens when your feet are too wet.' Our feet were wet for 73 hours. I was having a meltdown," she revealed.

The couple - who split in January after two years of dating - had remained friends and after spending time together on the set of X-Men: Days of Future Past and recently, they decided to give their relationship another chance.

The reconciliation will not come as a surprise to fans, as in an interview shortly before their break-up, Jennifer, 22, gushed about her feelings for Nicholas, 23: "He is honestly my best friend, and hopefully I'm his best friend, too ...

Jennifer LawrenceJennifer Lawrence and Harvey Weinstein honored Bill Clinton at the 24th Annual GLAAD Media Awards. At the ceremony in Los Angeles last night, the Silver Linings Playbook star was joined by the famed film producer as they introduced the former US president for his Advocate For Change Award.

Drew Barrymore was hosting the yearly event, which recognizes the achievements of various branches of the media who represent the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community and issues important to them.

Jennifer slipped up when saying the former commander in chief's name, although the honoree was in good spirits. "I don't know why Harvey made Jennifer do that. She really was like 2-years-old when I became president. I met her backstage and she looked like she was touring the Museum of Natural History," he joked.

Elsewhere at the star-studded bash, the Stephen F. Kolzak Award was presented to Steve Warren by Leonardo DiCaprio and Charlize Theron, and The Perks of Being a Wallflower was given the prize for Outstanding Film - Wide Release.

The couple - who met on the set of X-Men: First Class in 2010 - broke-up in January, and Nicholas' method of coping with heartbreak is to immerse himself in work.

"It's good to keep busy and focus, and have a lot of other stuff to think about," he explained.

Probed as to whether he and the fun-loving beauty would find it tough reuniting on the set of forthcoming mutant superhero film X-Men: Days of Future Past, he swiftly changed the subject after admitting it wouldn't feel weird "at all."

"No, not at all. We had a great time making that first film and the whole cast got along really well. And I'm really pleased that Bryan [Singer] is directing ... Did you see what I did there? I segued out of that quite skilfully?" he said in an interview.

The 22-year-old actress has forged a strong friendship with the 38-year-old actor - who has previously dated stars including Renee Zellweger and Zoe Saldana - since they worked together on Silver Linings Playbook and she is doing her best to help him settle down with a nice woman. "I feel like all I've been doing lately is setting him up," she said.

However, she is finding her efforts exhausting and has decided to give Bradley a shortlist of her friends, including pictures, so he can pick the ones he likes. "I was like, 'You know what? I'm going to save time, I'm going to get you a booklet of pictures of my friends and you just go through and pick them out. Because this is getting exhausting for me," she joked to MTV.

The Oscar-winning beauty and Bradley's relationship has been the subject of much scrutiny, but she insists there is nothing romantic between them: "He's more like my brother."

Her co-star Jacki Weaver accepted the award for Best Actress at the event on Saturday, saying, "I am going to accept this award on behalf of Jennifer. She really wishes she could be here, but she is very ill."

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Break-ups, Rumors

Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas HoultJennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult have reportedly split up.

The Silver Linings Playbook actress and the Warm Bodies star are thought to have called time on their almost two-year relationship recently, although they have remained friends.

"They're young and grew apart. But they remain friends," a source said.

The actress began dating Nicholas, 23, after they met on the set of 2011's X-Men: First Class and she previously insisted she didn't want them to become a celebrity couple: "You don't want your relationship to be in the press, but at the same time - and this is only a theory - the more you try and keep it secret, the more the media tries to crack it open. Maybe there's less pressure if you admit you are dating. Admitting that is just an experiment. I'm going to see how it goes."

The 22-year-old screen star also revealed she now spends more time in London with her British lover after abandoning her Los Angeles home following the success of this year's hit movie The Hunger Games.

Jennifer Lawrence Hates Hollywood Weight Pressure

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Rants

Jennifer LawrenceJennifer Lawrence won't lose weight for her career. The Hunger Games actress hates the pressure in Hollywood for female stars to conform to an ideal of beauty and be a certain size and she refuses to be made to feel overweight for eating normally.

"Oh god, yes, I'm so tired of the lollipops. I mean, if I looked like that I wouldn't be tired of it, obviously, but it's hilarious, the way I'm supposedly the overweight one. Like, they (the paparazzi) got me at the movies yesterday and the caption read something like, 'Curvy star cannot wait to dig into a tub of popcorn.' I mean come on! I'm just a normal girl who likes to eat! At least they got me using my hands," she ranted.

The 22-year-old blonde beauty takes the responsibility of playing teen idol Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games very seriously and wants to be a good role model to her fans, but admitted she has little in common with her tough on-screen alter-ego and is far from a natural leader in real life. "I guess people expect that of me, and if I had to kill something for survival, maybe I would and yeah, maybe I was a tomboy when I was growing up. But I'm definitely a girl now... Of course, there's a responsibility I'm aware of. In one sense, luckily, it comes naturally because I can't stay out beyond midnight. I don't really have an exciting life. But if you mean, am I natural leader? No. I just appear that way," she told British Vogue.

The Hunger Games actress has opened up about her British beau Nicholas Hoult - whom she has been dating since 2011 - and confessed people are often jealous of her because the Skins star is so handsome, even though he has no idea how charming he is.

"He has absolutely no idea how good-looking he is... I think a lot of women and men hate me because of that," she told British Vogue.

The pair have been an item since meeting on the set of X-Men: First Class and have remained tight-lipped about their romance, but Jennifer has now revealed she finds his geeky dress sense attractive and thinks he looks great no matter what he wears: "Oh, he really doesn't care [about the way he looks] ... like he'll sometimes wear these white tennis shoes with jeans, then tuck his pants into his socks."
