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.

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.

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.

Seems she was miffed at some photographers; her "boyfriend (isn't she a closeted lesbian?)" had a hand on her wrist in an attempt to restrain her. Likeable? HAH!
She's not THAT talented. She gets miscast a lot but critics swoon over her anyway. She's the latest Hollywood "it" girl. And that most certainly is going to be temporary.
