I feel like there’s a Jennifer Lawrence tipping point. There are only so many times the world can be told she’s our BFF before everyone turns against her.
It could be happening right now, I’m not sure, but according to headlines Jennifer Lawrence is RUDE and NOT CUTE ANYMORE.
Why? Well, fresh from her Golden Globe win for best actress in a musical or comedy for Joy, Lawrence, 25, called out a reporter who couldn’t stop looking at his mobile phone during a press conference backstage.
“You can’t live your whole life behind your phone, bro,” Lawrence told him.
“You can’t do that, you’ve got to live in the now.”
The reporter, who it must be noted, was Juan Pablo Fernández-Feo who works for Latin American E! network. He is a native Spanish speaker. He may have been looking at his phone to keep his questions straight and make sure he worded them correctly, I don’t know.
Fernández-Feo apologised and continued trying to ask his question: “How do you see yourself for the Oscar[s] night…” before Lawrence cut him off again.
“We’re at the Golden Globes. If you put your phone down, you’d know that,” she said. Everyone laughed, including Fernández-Feo.
Of course, Fernández-Feo was probably actually intending to ask her about her Oscars chances, but why let boring questions get in the way of a bit of fun?
J.Law was just bantering with the guy. He’s probably telling all the his mates about the time Jennifer Lawrence chatted him up.
Still, some thought it was a bit mean. And the internet swiftly condemned Lawrence for becoming just TOO big for her boots.
It’s like Jennifer Lawrence tries to be funny but it comes off as rude sometimes. She didn’t have to out the reporter like that.

I doubt Lawrence will give a rat’s arse if the internet decides she’s not America’s sweetheart anymore, but she’s not exactly Mel Gibson. She didn’t make anti-semitic comments or call a female cop “sugar tits”. She didn’t, like Sean Penn, hit her domestic partner. She’s never, like Russell Crowe, thrown a phone or strangled someone.
What do you think? Is Jennifer Lawrence a big meanie, or just having fun?
