The latest issue of Martha Stewart Weddings boasts a familiar face on the cover — but it isn’t a celebrity bride, it’s a celebrity bridesmaid. Jennifer Lawrence took a break from her busy film schedule to serve as one of 11 bridesmaids when her brother, Blaine Lawrence, married Carson Massler. READ FULL STORY
Tag: Jennifer Lawrence (1-10 of 72)
It’s a well-known fact that everyone wants to be Jennifer Lawrence’s best friend. Who among us hasn’t imagined scarfing down pizza with the American Hustle star while laughing at fart jokes and oh, yeah — hanging with Bradley Cooper like it ain’t no thang? But we never knew what it was actually like to be J. Law’s best friend — until now.
Lawrence’s real-life BFF, model Laura Simpson, was the actress’ date to last week’s Oscars, which led Simpson to write a pretty epic MySpace post about the night. Truly, it may go down as the greatest behind-the-scenes report from the Academy Awards ever. Why? Because Simpson is understandably starstruck and recounts Hollywood’s most exclusive evening through a real-person lens. So while she got to rub shoulders with Brad Pitt, guess what? Some parts of attending the Oscars aren’t nearly as glamorous as they seem. READ FULL STORY
Jennifer Lawrence can’t stop. Jennifer Lawrence won’t stop. And I, for one, wouldn’t want her to.
At last year’s Oscars, Lawrence took home the award for Best Actress, but only after she tripped her way up the stairs. And after she had the award in hand? She flipped off the entire press room. This year, she did not get a chance to trip up the stairs as she lost the Best Supporting Actress race to Twelve years A Slave‘s Lupita Nyong’o. However, J Law did not disappoint. She made sure to get her clumsiness out of the way early when she fell on the red carpet — stupid traffic cones! — and then, after she lost the Oscar race, she tried to get her hands on Nyong’o’s Oscar. Of course, she was joking, and the whole thing only makes us love her more.
The real question is, which fake fight was the night’s best — Lawrence’s struggle with Nyong’o, OR Kelly Osbourne “choking” Lady Gaga? (Osbourne and Gaga have apparently decided to bury the hatchet, after feuding for several years.) You decide:
Whether or not Jennifer Lawrence takes the stage to accept an Oscar for American Hustle, she’s already gotten her annual Academy Awards spill out of the way. The actress tripped over a cone at the start of the red carpet Sunday night. Watch it below courtesy of E!’s livestream. You see a cop try to help her up. (At last year’s ceremony, it was Bradley Cooper and Hugh Jackman.) What you don’t catch is how Lawrence laughed it off afterward. She was filmed telling more than one person about it. READ FULL STORY
Today in Jerk Moves: On the SAG Awards red carpet, Jennifer Lawrence found herself being interviewed mere inches away from Damian Lewis. In response, J. Law freaked out — apparently, she’s a huge Homeland fan, although she’s only seen the show’s first two seasons. (Granted, Lawrence says she’s watched both of them twice already; she’s waiting for season 3 to be released on DVD.)
Watching a celebrity get starstruck? Charming. Watching that celebrity sort of get bullied into meeting the star who’s causing her to hyperventilate? Less charming… especially when, in the clip below, Lewis’s interviewer decides to spill a huge secret about what happens to Brody at the end of season 3. Then Lawrence’s interviewer loudly, excitedly repeats it, despite the fact that Lawrence just told her she’s only watched seasons 1 and 2.
After some gape-mouthed shock, Jennifer leapfrogs right over anger to attain a higher state of righteous rage. “I’m past mad,” she tells the spoiler with the big microphone. “It’s this weird other emotion.” Your shock is our shock, Jennifer; your pain is our pain.
Want to win friends and influence people using your intimate knowledge of this year’s Oscar nominees — and how they stack up against Academy history? Never fear: EW’s got you covered. (Caution: Nerd alert!)
- It’s unclear how many times the F-word is used in The Wolf of Wall Street. Vulture says it’s 569; Slate says it’s 544; some guy at some blog says it’s 506. In any case, it’s one of the most profanity-laced films in history and certainly the swearingest movie ever to be nominated for Best Picture. Wolf director Martin Scorsese’s own Goodfellas, with a mere 300 documented “f—”s, is the previous record holder.
- American Hustle is the 15th film to receive nods in every acting category. David O. Russell is the first director to helm two movies (back to back, no less) that have both achieved this feat. No movie has ever won all four acting awards, though A Streetcar Named Desire (1951) and Network (1976) got three wins apiece. Also worth noting: While quadfectas generally snag at least one acting award, only two (1942′s Mrs. Miniver and 1953′s From Here to Eternity) have ever managed a Best Picture win.

For this year’s Oscars, it will be an ode to the honorable.
Producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron announced Tuesday that this year’s Academy Awards will have a movie hero theme. Meron made the announcement through an Instagram video saying the night would be a celebration of all heroes: popular heroes, real-life heroes, animated heroes, and superheroes.
Does that mean we can expect host Ellen DeGeneres in a Wonder Woman suit? Probably not. However, many of the stars in contention for Oscars this year have already played heroic parts. Here is a look at some of the best (cape not required):

Hoo boy. American Hustle director David O. Russell, it seems, does not approve of the modern Hollywood franchise machine — and he’s not afraid to express his opinions on the matter, even to gossip reporters.
At an awards ceremony last Friday, Russell told the New York Daily News that he believes Jennifer Lawrence’s Hunger Games commitment — a “hamster wheel” of filming and endless promotion — is running the star ragged.
Best from backstage at the Golden Globes: Leo on Marty, Bono on Mandela, plus Jennifer Lawrence, more
The best way to interview a celebrity? After they’ve won an award. Backstage at the Golden Globes, the parade of celebs — including A-listers like Jennifer Lawrence, Leonardo DiCaprio, and even U2 — were more than happy to greet the press and answer any and all questions.
Read on for some of our favorite quotes from the free-for-all press room:
Leonardo DiCaprio (winner — Best Actor, Drama for The Wolf of Wall Street) on Martin Scorsese and getting obsessed with his Wolf role:
I’m just thankful that Marty Scorsese is still as punk-rock, still as vital at 71 years old.
I stopped this film and it was like a giant adrenaline dump. I haven’t been able to work since, really. It was a phenomenal experience. Making movies is an interesting process. You put your entire life on hold. And these characters really do envelop you, for better or for worse. So, thank God none of the attributes of this character rubbed off on my real life, because I probably wouldn’t be standing here today.
Bono (winner, with U2 for Best Song “Ordinary Love” from Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom), on understanding Mandela:
There’s a few firsts, but the most powerful was to be with the great man on Robbin Island and hearing his voice crack as he spoke about his experience spending so much time on Robbin Island. And few so stoic and so kind of dismissive of his own pain. The first moment in our entire relationship that I saw him just lose it was on Robbin Island, and I’m not sure if you know this, but Mr. Mandela from cutting rocks on Robbin Island of salt had lost the use of his tear ducts. So this great man through all this historical triumph, was unable to cry. And in 2004 he had an operation to fix his tear ducts. It just so struck us on that occasion. It was very emotional on Robbin Island. And to be on the island with for Edge and myself is something we’ll never forget.
