Jennifer Lawrence is one actress you’ve got to like, guts and all.
The ‘Hunger Games’ star covers Glamour magazine where she talks everything from her style (which she describes as slutty power lesbian) to taking a stand about fair pay following the Sony saga, and her famous dinner with Adele and Emma Stone.
Describing her style…
“Slutty power lesbian.” That is literally what I say to a stylist. I don’t know if that’s offensive.
Dior is its own house that’s very feminine and beautiful; this past press tour every dress was just phenomenal. So you don’t see me as a slutty power lesbian on the red carpet a lot, because I’m embodying the Dior woman, which is an honor.… But [also] I’ve got tits and an ass. And there are things that are made for skinny people—like a lot of embroidery, or it covers a lot—and those make me look fat. I have to show the lumps. If you have boobs, you have to show, like, “These are boobs. This isn’t cellulite.” Not that there’s anything wrong with that.”
On taking a stand about fair pay…
“It was so personal that it was scary… I keep going back and forth on being opinionated. I completely agree when there are actors who say, “Actors should stay out of politics. We’re not politicians.” [And] my business is based on everybody buying tickets and seeing my movie.… It’s not smart, businesswise, to be opinionated. But then what’s the point in having a voice at all if I’m not going to use it for what I truly believe in?
The women’s pay gap is a real thing that a lot of people don’t know about. It hasn’t been in our consciousness; it wasn’t in mine. I don’t think it was Sony’s fault [that I was paid less than my male costars in American Hustle]. I don’t think it was anybody’s fault. I wanted to open up about how my mentality got in my way.”
On dinner with Emma and Adele
“I love Emma. She cracks me up; she’s so “theater.” She’s so adorable. And Adele and I met, like, a year or so ago. Adele and I are a bit harsher; Emma’s never had a bad thought about anybody in her life. It’s so weird; I don’t like new people. But these two women—and Amy—they’re really lovely. And they’re so normal. I feel like I’m hanging out with my friends—my friends that don’t give a f–k about what I do. Amy and I have a life plan—we were with Diane Sawyer in Martha’s Vineyard for Thanksgiving. Not to brag. Diane politely threw it out, and then we’re sitting at the dinner table with her family, like, “We shouldn’t be here.” Anyway, Amy’s always wanted to live on Martha’s Vineyard, and we saw this house, and we’re like, “This is where we’re gonna Grey Gardens, and we’re gonna grow old and crazy together.” That’s our life plan.”
