Jennifer Lawrence on Harvey Weinstein: “This kind of abuse is inexcusable and absolutely upsetting”

Posted on 1 min read 105 views

Actress Jennifer Lawrence has spoken out about film producer Harvey Weinstein and his alleged sexual harassment of women over the past three decades.

In a statement to Variety, the Mother! star condemned Weinstein, saying:

“I was deeply disturbed to hear the news about Harvey Weinstein’s behavior. I worked with Harvey five years ago and I did not experience any form of harassment personally, nor did I know about any of these allegations. This kind of abuse is inexcusable and absolutely upsetting. My heart goes out to all of the women affected by these gross actions. And I want to thank them for their bravery to come forward.”

Jennifer worked with Weinstein in 2013 on the film Silver Linings Playbook.

Weinstein was fired from the Weinstein production company this past week after nearly a dozen women came forward with stories of sexually harassment involving Weinstein. Today, three more women have shared their stories in a new feature by the New Yorker.

Jennifer Lawrence talks ‘Mother!’, throws axes on ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’

Posted on 2 min read 79 views

Actress Jennifer Lawrence made an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last night in New York City (Sept. 12), where she promoted her new film Mother!.

During her interview, Jennifer opened up on how she coped with the intensity of filming mother by setting up a ‘happy tent’ where she cheered herself up with Keeping up with the Kardashians.

“I’ve already said this, I don’t know if people know about this, but I got to such a low point in the film emotionally, like I was going to such a dark place that eventually I had to bring the Kardashians in,” Jennifer said, adding: “Not in person, obviously.”

“I had to do this one seen that I had never gone that dark before, I had never done something that horrifying so I started getting scared like a couple days before and was like ‘I need a tent just to be away from all the extras’ because I didn’t know what I would do,” she explained.

“And then eventually one Kardashian came, and then another Kardashian came – but it was just a computer that was playing the Kardashians and [it] had a headshot, and it also had little notes to me from them that I had written, which I can’t share any of them because I don’t want to offend anybody but, you know, just my own personal thoughts on everybody.”

Jennifer and Jimmy also had some fun with an axe throwing challenge during the show, where they tried to outdo each other by hitting a target with an axe.

Jennifer Lawrence Dazzles in Dior at Paris ‘Mother!’ Premiere

Posted on 2 min read 85 views

Jennifer Lawrence hit the red carpet in Paris on Thursday (Sept. 7), as she continues to promote her new film Mother!.

The Hunger Games actress dazzled on the red carpet in a strapless silver Dior gown as she arrived at the Paris premiere, where she screened the upcoming thriller flick before it opens in theatres on September 15.

Jennifer recently chatted about the film with The Daily Mail, where she revealed she initially felt like she was miscast in her role next to big-named stars like Michelle Pfeiffer, Javier Bardem and Domhnall Gleeson.

“That’s what scared me and I thought I was severely miscast,” Jennifer said. “I found time to find who she was while working with Darren and I was able to pull out this personality that I didn’t know existed.”

The actress also revealed that she injured herself while filming the movie, saying:

“I tore my diaphragm for hyperventilating. People thought I was beaten up, so I want to clear it up that I did it to myself. It was my own doing.”
