Anyone else find Jennifer Lawrence instantly unlikeable?
I don't know what it is about her, but I find her instantly unlikeable. She looks very plastic and fake for some reason and her performance in [italic]The Hunger Games[/italic] was okay, it wasn't great in any way.
Unfortunately, I think being cast in [italic]The Hunger Games[/italic] will mean that she will be appearing in a lot of films. I heard that she may be appearing in the [italic]Glass Castle[/italic]. Ugh. I was hoping for someone different.
No, I find her "instantly likeable," as do most people.
Quite the opposite.
No OP, just the opposite, and a very good actess.
I agree with R1,2&3.
I like everyone and everything and agree with r1 thru infinity on all threads everywhere past and present.
she's the anti-Kristin Stewart (who is the most UNlikeable actor working today)
She did that actresses roundtable recently. JL and Anne Hathaway whined the most about the paparazzi, I thought they were equally repulsive.
She is talented and comes across like a normal person not completely up her own ass. That makes her a likeable actor.
Bah....give me Saorise Ronan (The Lovely Bones, Hanna) any day.
Eh, she's a good actress who doesn't act like making movies is saving the world. I like her.
She reminds me of a less talented Meryl Streep.
I will tell you who is instantly unlikeable fat facer Tiffani Amber Thiessen.
I didn't find her instantly unlikeable, but neither did I like her a whole lot in that movie with Bradley Cooper, which I ditched after half an hour.
[quote]She reminds me of a less talented Meryl Streep.
She's 22 years old. She was nominated for one Best Actress Oscar and won another.
Meryl was 30 when she won her first Supporting Actress Oscar, having been nominated for the same award the year before.
Give her time. Jennifer Lawrence could be one of the greats.
R1 has interviewed every single person about this.
She was highly obnoxious at the Golden Globes, but she seems to have mellowed greatly.
OP = Emmanuelle Riva
I don't find her unlikeable. I just don't find her interesting. At all. Not even a tiny bit.
OP, you would have gotten some agreement if you'd asked if anyone finds her instantly lickable?
She seems a little white trashy. She's not prim and cultured like AnnE.
Actually, I've had exactly the opposite reaction to Lawrence, OP.
She's one of the very few young actors I like.
I really like her. She needs time to mature, but I think she will.
I just cannot get interested in her, and I can see where OP would dislike her, because everyone is certainly trying to make her into the next America's Greatest Actress. It gets irritating after a while, because she's pretty and bland and not as terrific as a host of other actresses who never got their due.
No it's just you. I hate when people do "am I the only one who..." type threads. No of course you aren't. Except in this case. :)
[quote]She did that actresses roundtable recently. JL and Anne Hathaway whined the most about the paparazzi, I thought they were equally repulsive.
JLaw was not on the roundtable, despite being the favourite. You're thinking Amy Adams. If you mean the Hollywood Reporter Oscars one.
She looks exactly like my niece
This is the problem with winning an Oscar young...everyone likes you and then after an Oscar they go wait a minute she's not all that. Better to go the Jessica Tandy/Morgan Freeman route.
I didn't like her initially, but she is very self-deprecating and real. It's clear that she's not going to get swept up in all the hype.
Another miserable gay thread.
Jennifer Lawrence is the next Meryl Streep or Jessica Lange...it's quite evident. Also, she supports her gays, so that's an added plus!
She reminds me more of Jodie Foster than Streep.
I think that as an actress, and as a person really, that Lawrence is much less inhibited than Foster. Crazy and sexy are two things that Lawrence can do very well, but that Foster, God love her, just can't do.
Jodie Foster is cold. Jennifer Lawrence is hot. They're both great, but I think they're really on opposit ends of the spectrum when it comes to acting.
Nope she is plastic, check implants botox, nose job vacant stare no there there next up a set of gigantic fake tits.
I like Jennifer lawrence so far.
Her Oscar speech was one of the best. It was nonchalant but not listless a la Portman and Jennifer Connelley.
I just loved her attitude, even some of the best speeches like Bullock they well up - not a bad thing of course, but I'm impressed by the composed ones like Meryl's first two. She tripped on her way to the stage (a BIG deal) but shrugged it off. She also looked elated when she walked off.
On another note I was watching Revenge and noticed she has a doppelganger in Emily Vancamp.
No, I find her pretty likeable. She's talented and goofy.
She should do a madcap comedy. I could see her doing a Streisand in What's Up Doc type role based on her falling on stage and the quick reply she made regarding it.
Plus I thought it was quite funny when backstage a reporter asked her if she was worried about her career peaking too soon and she said "Well NOW I am!! Jesh!!"
I'm neutral at this point. She wasn't what I expected physically in Hunger Games (I expected an emaciated body, with darker skin, looking more indigenous American). I don't have a problem with her, but am not in awe either. I haven't watched any award shows, but look at the pics / read the articles sometimes. Still neutral.
Watch Winters Bone to see how good she is.
Dumb thread. Of all the talentless, famous-for-no-reason skanks in that age range, you pick on the strong young actress who shined in Winter's Bone and impressed enough people in Silver Linings to win an Oscar? OP - you're kind of lame.
I find her unlikable - overrated, mediocre, charmless, plain, undeserving, average. Her popularity is probably in part due to anti-intellectualism in America today. I can't see anything special beneath her hype, she comes across as more of a TV actress than a movie star.
Despite her insincerity, I prefer AnnE.
Yes, and she's overexposed.
Overexposed? She seems to live a pretty subdued private life.
[quote]Overexposed? She seems to live a pretty subdued private life.
I think R39 meant by the media.
Constance McCashin lives a subdued private life. Lawrence is always going to events and alerting the press. Just the other night she went to the Met Ball. Constance however, was toasting a bagel for herself.
[quote]she's the anti-Kristin Stewart (who is the most UNlikeable actor working today)
Fuck off, Rob!
I don't like her either, OP. I'm very unimpressed with young people who have no manners and think that it's cute. I'm also not impressed by people who have not had to pay any dues on their way up the career ladder or who brag about never taking acting classes.
There's something about her I don't like either. I can't quite put my finger on it, but something about her is fake.

I did like her but not so much anymore. Undeserved Oscar and lots of overexposure has cemented my feeling.
Back off bitches, she's ours!
I don't think anyone was fighting for her r49
Just a typical American: no style, no grace.
NONE of you queens know whether she's likeable or not, because none of you actually KNOW her.
She's overpraised and overrated. All the fawning over her seems really stupid. And she didn't deserve the Oscar; Emmanuelle Riva did. But she's the current young Hollywood "It" girl, so she ended up winning it.
I'd say her success is due to luck more than anything else.
r52, only old self-haters still use the word queen
r49 the only people posting here who love her ARE lesbians.
r53 = college kid, thinks she knows everything
I love the picture posted here of her up at 5 in the morning for her first Oscar nomination.
Nicholas Hoult was with her, I kinda thought he was gay before but that was a while back before we even knew they were dating. I'd have been jealous if I were him, he was quite in her shadow.
[quote]she's the anti-Kristin Stewart (who is the most UNlikeable actor working today)
Lawrence has essentially snatched Kristen's career and ran with it. And that is a very good thing.
Jennifer isn't thriving at the expense of Kristen.
The Hunger Games is the coolest franchise. Can't wait for the next one.
[quote]Jennifer isn't thriving at the expense of Kristen.
As the go to actress for prestige indies and big franchise films, she most definitely is the one top. Kristen Stewart could only wish for any of those parts.
Why are Jennifer fans so obsessed with Kristen? Who gives a fuck about her?
Both are overrated and I can't wait till both are gone. One for not acting as good as the chances she gets and the other for an undeserved Oscar and pure hype. I'm more sickened with the undeserved Oscar, if I had to choose.
R61 - Yes, Jennifer is getting the great roles and the buzz, but she's not getting them at Kristen's expense.
Jennifer plays women. Kristin plays the emo Twilight girl and that's about it.
[quote]I did like her but not so much anymore. Undeserved Oscar and lots of overexposure has cemented my feeling.
In a few years I imagine she'll become the next Paltrow (Oscar bought for her, undeserved, only got it for her image) and generally disliked by the public. I get a phony feeling from her. I imagine she's nasty bitch.
R65 - She's not like Goop. Goop is Hollywood royalty, Jennifer is a kid from Kentucky. Goop is full of pretense. Jennifer is lacking in pretense.
Plenty of pretensions celebrities come from humble beginnings, R66. But I was referring to how Paltrow's Oscar win is now widely regarded as a mistake.
R67 - Jennifer deserved an Oscar for Winter's Bone.
R65 is one of those bitter people that predict someone's future and presently hates them for it. It's a very weird thing you see all the time.
I haven't seen "Winter's Bone" so I couldn't offer an opinion. I did see "Silver Linings Playbook" and she shouldn't have won for that. If that was really the best performance by a female in a leading role all year, I should just give up watching new movies.
She was excellent in Winter's Bone, R70. I watched a little more than half of Silver Lining Playbook but I didn't like what I saw. Even so, she wasn't the worst thing about SLP.
R70 - Go watch Winter's Bone. She is so good in it.
I feel sorry for Kristen. She isn't the best actress working today, but she seems very sincere and socially awkward.
Jennifer is overrated and fake. I wonder what she did for that jewish pig H. Weinstein to get an Academy Award. She also said some homophobic and racist things in the past.
I mean, sort of, but it's not necessarily her fault. She reminds me of various school acquaintances and semi-friends named Amanda that I've had over the years.
Much better in Winter's Bone than SLP which I really liked as a film but was not blown away by the acting. She's very different in WB, SLP is similar to her real life persona.
I think Portman was her competition first time round and I love Black Swan but it was more about the role than the performance.
Gwyneth did have some things that built up to her win, like Emma I suppose and, of course, Seven. But that has to rank as one of the least deserved ever, the weakest of the nominees. Her It Girl status and recent performances were more relevant than what she did in SIL, which deserves scorn for Affleck alone. You can see Harvey get up as she takes to the stage or something.
I thought she seemed sweet and geniune at the academy awards.She's a great actress and she was sexy in Silver Linings Playbook even if the story was predictiable and old hat.She was the best thing in it.I'd love to make love to oher. I wonder if she can sing.She claims she has two left feet but they were both ppretty skilled not tomentiompretty feet to me.I'd like to see her barefoot.
I have loved her ever since I first saw Winter's Bone. I don't think she deserved the oscar for Silver Linings Playbook, although I though she was good in it, but that's beside the point. I see nothing at all unlikable about her.
r7, I watched this past actress roundtable and Lawrence wasn't in it.
I became a huge fan of hers after Winter's Bone and loved her in The Hunger Games as well, but once Silver Linings Playbook and the fucking mountains of hype came along I kind of started to lose interest. I don't really blame her for it, either. I just don't understand why Hollywood has to be so god damn hell bent on overexposing the shit out of certain actors. It's nauseating.
I thought everything about The Hunger Games was terrible (starting with the book), so I won't judge her for that. She did enough with the character.
She was amazing in Winter's Bone. My second favorite performance that year after Natalie Portman.
But for me she was completely miscast in Silver Linings Playbook. I don't think I would have liked the film either way (the whole thing felt so oddly disjointed and hollow to me), but she's far too young to make me believe that character.
This is shallow, but Jennifer Lawrence is NOT pretty. I think that her face is plain. As such, it's annoying when the media and fans hype her as "gorgeous".
She will be everywhere in the next 3 years and then everybody will be so bored and tired of her. She has an interesting face with the right make up and lighting, but she has no charisma and very little talent.
I think she'll be the next Gwyneth Paltrow. She has very little talent, no charisma. Plus, she's dimwitted.
I find her completely fake.
I think mostly white girls like her because they find that behavior normal.
OP, I have a feeling that it is most of the world that finds YOU instantly unlikeable.
Of course, some of you losers find her fake. She's one of the few that have not been carved up and re-packaged with fake body parts. She's got a real body, not skinny starved, and a decent attitude. She's self deprecating. She's not hopped up or temperamental at work. She shows up and does her job.
Love her. DL pretty much hates all young actresses, unless they're completely devoid of sex appeal, so this thread is no surprise.
She's likable and talented and attractive. That said I hope she doesn't go the "earnest reformer" route, that grows old and annoying really quick. She should take a look at the reasons people find Hathaway so annoying.
JL was interviewed and in some way or another she went on about making the word fat illegal (I just saw a preview, not certain exactly) and I thought oh no this is a slippery slope. I'm certain there is truth to what she is saying but people get annoyed when they are told how to think by anyone, much less someone who was a kid three or four years ago.
I think shes genuine as any actor can be, but obviously overhyped. She's a talented actress but so many people finding her genuine and authentic seem to forget she is an actress. Like when she talks about how she's so fat and will never diet. Admirable stance, but its not really true. Shes a slim, healthy young woman who, despite what everyone thinks, DOES try and ingratiate herself to the public.
