Ooo! There might be some weave snatchin’ on Oscar night. It would easily be the highlight of the show, but that isn’t saying much as the Oscars are about as much fun as holding your Grandma’s purse on bingo night.
A rumor enforced by Showbiz Spy claims that Jessica Chastain hates Jennifer Lawrence with a burning passion and will toss marbles under JLaw’s feet a la “Showgirls” if she wins the Oscar. According to the site, it all started with the ‘Hunger Games‘ star’s monologue for SNL claiming that, “Jessica felt Jennifer trivialized her acting role and didn’t see any humor in the bit. She can’t stand Jennifer all the more for it.”
Jen also pissed in Jessica’s Fruit Loops by winning the SAG Award…
“Jessica can’t stand the fact that Jennifer is stealing her thunder! What’s more, the critics have been gushing over Jennifer’s awards show speeches and it’s been killing Jessica! It was a real blow to Jessica when Jennifer took the SAG Award… not only did Jessica think she deserved it, she thought she had it in the bag. She tried to put on a brave face for the cameras, but inside she was seething.”
Chastain realizes this makes her look like a bitter old cow for hating on Lawrence. So, she jumped on Facebook to clear the air with a Down With Lady Fights post…
I find it very sad that media makes up bogus stories about women fighting in this industry. Filming The Help was the most amazing experience and yet, that is the film Im most asked about in regards to “fighting on set”. Why do we support the myth that women are competitive and cannot get along?
I think all of the actresses recognized this year have given incredible performances. But more important, they’ve all shown themselves to be filled with generosity and kindness. I’ve done two photo shoots with Jennifer Lawrence over the years and have found her to be utterly charming and a great talent. I’ve told her how beautiful her film work is.
Please don’t allow the media to perpetuate the myth that women arent supportive of each other. Everytime an actress is celebrated for her great work, I cheer. For the more brilliant their performance, the more the audience demands stories about women. With support and encouragement, we help to inspire this industry to create opportunities for women. And as we all know: a great year for women in film, is just a great year for film xxjes
Lawrence comes off as very down-to-earth and even self conscious in person. She is that girl in high school who quietly sat at the back of the room trying to fly under the radar but somehow ended up being prom queen.
Jessica is the girl whose dog won an Oscar from Ellen for being awesome. I think the cancel each other out.
