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.

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.

She reminds me more of Jodie Foster than Streep.

by Anonymousreply 2805/08/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 3105/09/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 3205/09/2013

No, I find her pretty likeable. She's talented and goofy.

by Anonymousreply 3305/09/2013

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!!"

by Anonymousreply 3405/09/2013

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.

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.

by Anonymousreply 3705/09/2013

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.

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.

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.

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.

What happened to the Oscars?:

by Anonymousreply 7705/11/2013

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 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.

by Anonymousreply 8205/11/2013

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.

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.

by Anonymousreply 9112/23/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 10105/16/2014

She frequently acts like an ass, and that is NOT "likeable." She went on a talk show and talked about shitting in her pants. She trips not infrequently; I guess that's because she's drunk a lot. Recently she was photographed with her middle finger in the air (again). 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.

She has a round, plain face. With makeup she can look glamorous. But her looks are nothing special.

She's one of the most overpraised actresses I've ever heard of.

I can't stand celebrities shooting the finger at people taking their picture. If you don't want to be a star move on. And while I realize it is her choice to decide when the public sees her undressed, doing a photo shoot with your boobs hanging out while whining about privacy was just a bad move. One of the reasons people initially liked her was that she wasn't whiney and affected by it all. Now one gets the feeling she is blaming all of us for her lack of privacy.
