Jennifer Lawrence has a seriously amazing career. She is currently the star of one of the biggest movie franchises out there, The Hunger Games, and she’s proven to us that she’s actually a really good actress through films like X-Men: First Class and Winter’s Bone. And forget about her talent for a second – girlfriend has had the opportunity to work with some very hot dudes. To name a few, there’s Liam Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson, Bradley Cooper and Nicholas Hoult.
So one would think that maybe the best part of her career is getting to kiss those same very hot dudes mentioned above, and to get paid for kissing them (rough life). Or maybe her favorite thing about being an actress so far is getting to wear gorgeous dresses on the red carpet. Or maybe it’s the money, the A-list friends and just the general fame.
Nah. Her favorite part of her career is much cooler than all of that stuff, and it just proves to us what we already knew: Jennifer Lawrence is really freakin’ cool. Maybe even one of the coolest chicks in Hollywood right now, or ever. Seriously. Every single interview she does just makes her look even cooler, which I didn’t think was possible.
So what’s the one thing that has really stuck out for her through her career? Jennifer earned a Best Actress nomination at the Academy Awards for her performance in Winter’s Bone, but no, that’s not it either. Instead, it’s what she got for that nomination – M&M’s that had her picture emblazoned on them. She told the New York Times: “That literally was probably the coolest thing that I saw. I was like: ‘You know what? It’s all worth it’ after I saw those M&M’s.”
Um, could she be any more down to earth? I don’t think so. And I mean, I totally agree with her. Imagine getting a ton of tiny little M&M’s with your own face on them?! That kind of tops the list as one of the most awesome things that can happen to a person. I’m just glad that Jennifer is cool enough to fully appreciate them.
Oh, and one other thing. If Jennifer gets another Oscar nomination for her role in Silver Linings Playbook (where she kills it as a mentally unstable, sex-crazed widow), she told the NY Times she expects something similar: “I want a pizza with my face on it.”
Go ahead and try to tell me you didn’t fall in love with Jennifer after those quotes. You can’t! She’s like that chill girl in your school who is always making everyone laugh and who everyone wants to be BFF’s with. It’s so refreshing to hear an actress talk about awesome little perks like candy with their faces on it rather than talking about fashion or fitness or stuff like that. I mean, when was the last time you heard an actress gush about food the way Jennifer does? And why shouldn’t she? Food is wonderful! Personalized candy and pizzas are even better.
So that pretty much settles it – Jennifer Lawrence wins at Hollywood. Who wants to join me at the movies to see Silver Linings Playbook next week?
