Jennifer Lawrence is receiving lots of support after penning an essay on pay equality for Lenny, but she’s also facing criticism.
In an interview with Harper’s Bazaar magazine, Lawrence says it is hard to ignore the naysayers: “I obviously only absorbed the negative. I didn’t pay attention to the positive feedback… but, really, people who criticized it are people who think women should not be paid the same as men. So I don’t really care what those people think.”;
The 25-year-old, Oscar-winning actress says one of the biggest complaints she receives about the essay, is her own good fortune: “I try not to be too sensitive to the ‘poor rich girl’ jokes. I was saying my reality is absolutely fabulous, but it is not the reality of a lot of women in America. That’s what I’m talking about.”;
When discussing feminism as a whole, JLaw believes the concept is simple: “I don’t know why that word is so scary to people; it shouldn’t be, because it just means equality. You don’t have to take away the wonderful traits that come with being a woman.”;
Rounding off the conversation, the actress admits that it can be hard to strike a balance between embracing feminine qualities and pushing for equality “We are sensitive. We are pleasers. We’re empathetic. All those things that can keep you from asking for what you want or making mistakes.”;
Moving on to a more light-hearted topic, JLaw admits she is not much of a partier: “I’m kind of a bummer. I’m a nana. It’s hard to get me out, and when I do go out I don’t really stay out late. If I do stay out late and I’m partying hard, I will throw up. I don’t have the tolerance to black out; I just start puking.”;
And boy does she ever – sharing a story of her night out after an Adele concert: “Ask Emma Stone. It was the night we saw Adele in LA. She just started rubbing my back. (Woody Harrelson) cut his foot. He stayed over in one of my guest bedrooms, but that’s where I started puking. I broke a candle because I can’t just puke like a normal person – I flay my arms everywhere. And I didn’t clean it up because I’m an a**hole. The next day he cut his foot open. I was like, “F**k, am I going to get sued?’ And he’s like, “Are you going to ask if I’m okay?'”;
Lawrence has recently been in Montreal filming scenes for “X-Men: Apocalypse”;, set to come out on May 27.
