Mean girls are everywhere – they even pick on girls as awesomely amazing as – GASP – Jennifer Lawrence. Yes, it’s true – everyone’s favorite female celeb was once picked on and bullied in school.
This seems kind of impossible, since Jennifer Lawrence is currently one of the coolest celebrities ever. I mean, she falls up stairs accepting Oscars, she orders McDonald’s on the red carpet, she’s extremely self-deprecating and she was caught on camera reacting to Jack Nicholson’s creepiness in the best way possible – the girl can do wrong. Who would ever bully her?! But really, this shouldn’t be such a huge surprise. I feel like every other week, I hear another story about a gorgeous and talented star who dealt with bullying when they were younger.
What stands out with JLaw is, obviously, her amazing way of dealing with these bullies. That should come as no surprise – if anyone is going to have a kick-ass comeback to a mean girl, it would be Jennifer Lawrence. I mean, come on.
So, what is Jennifer Lawrence’s advice on how to deal with bullies? In an interview with The Sun, JLaw said, “I changed schools a lot when I was in elementary school because some girls were mean. They were less mean in middle school, because I was doing all right, although this one girl gave me invitations to hand out to her birthday party that I wasn’t invited to. But that was fine, I just hocked a loogie on them and threw them in the trash can.”
She adds: “Don’t worry about the bitches – that could be a good motto, because you come across people like that throughout your life.”
Um, guys? I have legitimately never hocked a loogie in my entire life – it grosses me out to no end – but now that Jennifer Lawrence has said that, I want to start doing it. Like, to every mean person who crosses my path. I don’t care if you’re an Internet troll or my boyfriend’s ex-girlfriend or the store clerk who gives me an attitude. If you’re rude, I’m going to spit on you.
In all seriousness, could Jennifer Lawrence get any cooler? This is such a badass way to deal with bullies. I mean, if that were me, I probably would have just cried, called my mom and went home for the day. I can totally see mini Jennifer spitting on a pile of letters and throwing them in a trash can while being like, “Whatever, dude.” And so my girl crush gets bigger.
How do you deal with bullies and mean girls? Do you stand up for yourself or are you more passive? Do you have a girl crush on Jennifer Lawrence? Tell me in the comments!
