Jennifer Lawrence says filming nude scenes in Red Sparrow made her feel empowered

Jennifer LawrenceJennifer Lawrence is back on the big screen this spring with her highly anticipated thriller, Red Sparrow, and if you’ve watched the trailer you’ll know exactly why we’re excited for its release.

In the action-packed spy flick, JLaw plays ex-Ballerina, Dominika Egorova, who is recruited to ‘Sparrow School’ – a Russian intelligence service where she is trained to use her body as a weapon. However, things take a dark twist when her first mission, targeting a CIA agent, threatens to unravel the security of Russia and the US.

In this exclusive clip, Lawrence explains the complexities of her character…

“She’s forced into a program against her will and trained in espionage,” the Oscar-winning actress explains. “She turns the tables, her mind is fascinating.”

She continues: “She’s ten steps ahead of everybody who’s trying to use her.”

Speaking to Vanity Fair, Jennifer also revealed that her role involved some nude scenes which left her feeling empowered. The actress infamously had her phone hacked and private photos leaked in 2014 and says filming Red Sparrow helped to “heal” her.

“My biggest fear was that people would say, ‘Oh, how can you complain about the hack if you’re going to get nude anyway?’ One is my choice. I got something back that was taken from me, and it also felt normal.”

She also admitted she had to go on a strict diet for the first time in her career to play the role of an ex-ballerina. “I can’t work on a diet,” Jennifer explained. “I remember having a meltdown, freaking out that I had eaten five banana chips.”

The movie, which has been directed by Francis Lawrence, hits cinemas tomorrow.

Jennifer Lawrence couldn’t stop crying at Amy Schumer’s wedding

Jennifer LawrenceAt any wedding, you can expect to find a certain cast of characters: the uncle who visits the open bar a few too many times, the random acquaintance who grabs the mic to make a speech, and, like Jennifer Lawrence at Amy Schumer’s surprise wedding earlier this week, a whole army of friends and family members who just can’t stop crying at the ceremony. On Thursday, two days after Schumer married chef Chris Fischer in Malibu, California, Lawrence talked to Entertainment Tonight about her friend’s tearjerking wedding ceremony.

“It was beautiful,” J.Law said. “It was very sudden, but it was…I was sobbing the whole — his vows were stunning. It’s when two people really love each other and they really mean it, it shows, and it was a beautiful ceremony and an amazing time. I couldn’t be happier for them.” At the beachside wedding, Lawrence wore a sleeveless pink Philosophy dress with a high collar and black belt — recycled from her December 2017 appearance at The Hollywood Reporter‘s annual Power 100 breakfast — which she paired with a few necklaces and a low bun. “Notice my shirt was accidentally undone the whole time,” the Oscar winner joked to ET. “In every wedding photo, all of my buttons were undone. It looks like I was like, ‘Oh, you thought this was going to be about you?’”

After several outlets reported that Schumer earlier this week had quietly married her boyfriend of just a few months, the comedian took to Instagram on Wednesday to confirm the news, posting tons of photos from Tuesday’s ceremony and reception throughout the day, including several of her and Lawrence. In one photo, Lawrence kisses Schumer on the head while they pose together in front of the ocean. In others, the duo, who are currently writing a film together, hit the dance floor, drinks in hand, and pose alongside other celebrity guests at the wedding like Chelsea Handler and Cazzie David. Jake Gyllenhaal, Jennifer Aniston, Judd Apatow, and Larry David were also in attendance.

Emma Stone canceled plans on Jennifer Lawrence and left her with half a face of makeup

Emma Stone and Jennifer Lawrence

Make some room in your heart, because Emma Stone and Jennifer Lawrence‘s friendship is going to need the space. Last week brought us the pair’s delightful joint interview with W, in which they discussed memories like their pet turtles and a shared stalker (believe it or not, much funnier than it sounds). The only downside is that it took until now for the two to get onscreen together, especially when you see the dynamic we’ve been missing out on. But on the upside, they just gave fans an inside look at their Golden Globes night. As expected, it’s gold.

According to a video Jennifer posted on Facebook, the two were supposed to meet up after the ceremony to go to some after-parties together. As celebrities do, Jennifer called in a glam squad to prep her look for the night — so when Emma texted that she’d rather just hang out at home instead, as good friends do, Jennifer rolled with the change of plans.

That meant stopping everything and sending her squad home for the night, and that meant the Internet got a fantastic video of Jennifer wearing exactly one-half of a full-on look.

“What happened tonight?” Emma asks Jennifer, who’s shown in profile. “Well. You had told me you wanted me to be your date to the after-parties, so I got us tickets to some after-parties, and booked a car, and was halfway through glam when you told me told me that you didn’t want to go,” Jennifer slowly says, turning toward the camera. “That you just wanted to come over to my house, so I sent my hair and makeup team home. And now this is what I look like.” She stares at the camera with one pitch-black smoky eye. The woman knows drama, and that is some impeccable comedic timing.

Jennifer LawrenceJennifer Lawrence called out Emma Stone for changing Golden Globes plans.

Jennifer Lawrence knows how to make an awards night memorable, whether she’s accepting an honour, taking a tumble on the red carpet or — as it turns out — not even attending. On Sunday night, the actress intended to make the rounds at a few Golden Globes after parties with her pal and fellow star Emma Stone. But as she revealed in a video she shared on Facebook, their plans suddenly changed. Watch here:

Zoe Kravitz Golden GlobesThe real reason why so many stars wore emeralds to the Golden Globes

The 2018 Golden Globe Awards was more than just a party. The red carpet was dominated by a sea of elegant black gowns. A-listers donned the hue as a statement of solidarity, sisterhood and support for the Time’s Up initiative, which aims to put an end to sexual assault and gender inequality in the workplace. A more subtle way some of Hollywood’s leading ladies showed their dedication to the cause was by accessorizing their ensembles with emerald jewels. Beyond simply being gorgeous, these precious green gems are deeply symbolic. Emeralds have long been associated with divine feminine power — birth, fertility and creation. Plus, the green color was special to the suffragette movement that fought for women’s right to vote.

It isn’t news we’re obsessed with Emrata’s glossy locks. The actress and model’s looks can fill anyone with beauty envy. So when we heard Emily was going to be the new face of hair authority, Kérastase, we knew the collab was bound to be good.

Kanye West sent Kim Kardashian some fashion advice

Anyone who picked up a tabloid in the aughts knows that oversize sunglasses were once the great staple accessory in celebrity fashion. But Kim Kardashian, has abandoned these once-iconic, face-obscuring frames in favour of even more nostalgic eyewear: teeny-tiny, 90s inspired sunglasses. And apparently, this eyewear switch-up can be traced back to one Kanye West. “[Kanye] sent me a whole email like, ‘You cannot wear big glasses anymore,’” Kim explained. “He sent me like, millions of nineties photos with tiny little glasses.”

Jennifer Lawrence admits she’s incredibly rude to her fans

She may be known for her down-to-earth, friendly persona, but Jennifer Lawrence admits she’s actually “incredibly rude” when she meets her fans.

Jennifer Lawrence

Speaking to Adam Sandler during the seventh season of Variety Studio: Actors On Actors, she said: “Once I enter a public place, I become incredibly rude. I turn into a huge a–hole. That’s my only way of defending myself.”

This means icy stares, finger-wagging and definitely no selfies.

The 27-year-old Oscar-winning actress says people “just assume they’re your best friend” when you work in comedy, and she’s not here for it. Throw her friend Amy Schumer into the mix and “they’re f*cked”.

Jen says she usually responds with: “It’s my day off, it’s Sunday. I’m not working today.”

During the interview she also opened up about her split from Hollywood director Darren Aronofsky. The couple worked together on the controversial horror movie Mother! and it seems this caused problems in their relationship.

“We’d be on the tour together. I’d come back to the hotel, and the last thing I want to talk about or think about is a movie,” she said. “He comes back from the tour, and that’s all he wants to talk about.”

“I get it; it’s his baby,” she continued. “He wrote it; he conceived it; he directed it. I was doing double duty trying to be a supportive partner while also being like, ‘Can I please, for the love of God, not think about Mother! for one second?’”

The funniest moments from Jennifer Lawrence’s interview with Kim Kardashian

Jennifer Lawrence made her talk show host debut last night as she interviewed Kim Kardashian West on Jimmy Kimmel Live, and NOTHING was off limits.

ennifer Lawrence's interview with Kim Kardashian

The Oscar-winning actress, who stepped in for Jimmy Kimmel as guest host, asked Kim about everything from breaking wind in front of her husband Kanye West, who she’d rather sleep with out of Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un, and whether she believes OJ Simpson did indeed murder his wife Nicole Brown Simpson. Yep, she went there.

Before introducing Kim, JLaw explained that she was a Kardashian super fan, saying: “I have been obsessed with our first guest and her family for over a decade, in a very, very healthy way.”
Sure, Jen. We believe you.

Here are some of our favourite moments from the interview…

When they played ‘Would You Rather’

After Kim revealed that she used to be the go-to girl for hacking into the devices of her friends and exes, an impressed JLaw said: “Wow, do you think you could hack a president’s Twitter and maybe stop a war? You could save the world in theory.”

Kim then recalled a question Jennifer had asked during the two’s recent dinner at Kris Jenner’s house, saying: “[You asked me] if you could save the world who would you rather sleep with: Donald Trump or Kim Jong-Un? “I think we were just laughing so hard we didn’t choose.”

“Oh that’s impossible, I probably made you choose. I get very aggressive when I’m drunk,” Lawrence responded.

When Kim revealed which Kardashian sister lost their virginity first

“Probably me. But I was in a serious relationship. It wasn’t Kourtney,” Kim said.

When we found out that even Kim Kardashian has been cheated on…

When Jennifer asked Kim if she had ever been cheated on, the Keeping Up With The Kardashian star said yes and recalled the moment she found, saying: “I got into [my then boyfriend’s] voicemail and I was at dinner with all of my best friends. I put it on speaker wondering where my boyfriend was. He was flying in town to meet another girl on my birthday and lied to me that he was in a different city.”

“Oh my god, that’s like a Taylor Swift song,” Jennifer responded.

Guest Host Jennifer Lawrence is obsessed with @KimKardashian and has a LOT of amazing questions for her TONIGHT on #Kimmel!

A post shared by Jimmy Kimmel Live (@jimmykimmellive) on

When Kim was asked if she had spoken to OJ Simpson since he was released from prison

“I haven’t. I haven’t talked to him in years. I think I saw him at a club in Miami like a decade ago,” said Kim, whose late father Robert Kardashian was the close friend and lawyer of OJ Simpson.

“I have so much respect for his children. I feel like my mom and Caitlyn [Jenner] both say a lot about it and they’re really vocal. And I just feel like, you know, his kids. It must be like really hard. I just try to stay away from it,” she added.

When she revealed Kanye’s weirdest habit

“He falls asleep anywhere. We’ll be at a meeting or he’ll introduce me to people I’ve never met before, we’ll be at a restaurant and he’ll be snoring at the table,” Kim said.

When she was asked about Blac Chyna…

Kim kept it classy when she was asked about former BFF and mother of her niece, Blac Chyna, saying: “I always said when someone is going to ask me: Dream is going to see this one day and so it’s just super respectful not to say anything about my niece’s mom.”

Jennifer Lawrence is one of many stars, including Channing Tatum, to fill in for Jimmy Kimmel while his son undergoes heart surgery this week.
