Jennifer Lawrence was 24 when she shot Joy. Her character, Joy Mangano, was 34 when she invented the Miracle Mop and became one of the first stars of the QVC network. This fact remains inescapable throughout Joy. Lawrence remains watchable in Joy because, as one of our best young actors, she can’t help but be watchable. But she’s totally miscast as a divorced mother of two who’s been repeatedly beaten down by life’s disappointments. This part was meant for the Jennifer Lawrence of a 2025, not the one of 2015.

Like many actors before her, Jennifer Lawrence is preparing to add director to her impressive resumé. She can act, she can sing, she’s writing a movie with Amy Schumer and advocating for equal pay — is there anything she can’t do? Okay, she has trouble walking without falling everywhere she goes, but Lawrence is so graceful about it that she makes it look like a skill.

Today brings the wide release of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 2 (or, as I have taken to calling it for clarity’s sake, Hunger Games 3 2) and while American fans have been worked into the customary new-premiere frenzy, Hungermania has spread across the four corners of the globe. One of the many secrets to the franchise’s continued success has been its international appeal, the themes of freedom’s triumph over oppression resonating with audiences across Europe, in East Asian markets, and just about everywhere else that movie projectors roll. But a global presence can highlight some curious cultural differences.

The gender wage gap is an issue that affects women in almost every single career field, but it’s recently become a more high-profile issue as actors have been speaking out about their income disparity. Jennifer Lawrence recently penned an essay on the subject, with actors like Emily Blunt, Emma Watson, Jessica Chastain and even Bradley Cooper chiming in. And while the wage gap battle rages on, here’s one you can add to the winning column: Scarlett Johansson made more money than the majority of her male co-stars in Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Over the summer we discovered that our imaginary BFFs Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Schumer have become friends in real life, and really, what could be better? Oh, right — it wasn’t long before Lawrence and Schumer revealed that they’re working on a comedy film together. We haven’t heard much more about it since then, though its mere existence has sustained the hopes and dreams of many a J-Amy fan. While we anxiously await this miraculous product of two beautiful minds, Lawrence has a few details to hold us over.

‘Hunger Games’ Producer on More Sequels or Spinoffs: ‘I’m Not Sure There’s Any More to Say’

Yesterday came news of massive Hunger Games theme park plans. Next summer, a Hunger Games stage show opens in London. But, will the Hunger Games borrow a page from the Harry Potter playbook and launch a new series of films, a la Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them? The producer of all four of the Hunger Games movies certainly doesn’t seem to think so.

‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2’ Clip: Katniss Is Tired of Making Speeches

by Britt Hayes November 2, 2015 @ 4:18 PM
“I’m going to kill Snow,” says Jennifer Lawrence’s Katniss Everdeen in the latest clip from The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2. And I think we can all agree with the chuckles from Jena Malone’s Johanna Mason, as she declares, “Now you’re talking.” The time for speech-making is done as Katniss prepares to finally take down the man who has caused the districts so much pain in the final installment of The Hunger Games franchise (for now), and we’re right there with her.
