In Fashion: Jennifer Lawrence Covers Glamour’s February 2016 Issue

jennifer-lawrence-glamour-magazine

The Hunger Games star dished on being a woman in Hollywood, dating, her friendship with Amy Schumer, her career, her style and fame. The starlet took a trip down memory lane to when she first nabbed a cover on the magazine. When describing how she was feeling at that time four years ago she had this to say,

“I feel like I got a ticket to another planet and I’m moving there, and there’s no turning back. And I don’t know if I’m gonna like that other planet or have friends there.”

Ask Lawrence how she’s feeling today about the pandemonium of fame and she’s singing a slightly different tune.

“It’s really lovely. Very nice. … It took a few years to adjust. I didn’t really realize how angry and distorted I felt. For, like, probably a solid three years…It had to do with the thing that came with Hunger Games. I still felt entitled to a certain life that I just wasn’t allowed to have [anymore]. I felt like I had the right to say, [“I don’t want to be photographed right now.”] I felt so much anger of [“Why can’t I just do my job?”] And then you just get used to it—and it just is.”

When asked about her personal style the actress described it as “slutty power lesbian.” The face of the house of Dior loved all the gowns she wore during her recent press tour, but Lawrence doesn’t always like to be covered up.

“…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.”

When asked about her dating life the starlet admits that it is very hard for a guy to pique her interest.

“I feel a spark very, very rarely. And it’s really only about spark for me. Not really anything else.”

#Trainwreck: Amy Schumer Tries To Impress Method Man with A Rap Freestyle [Video]

amy schumer and method man

While on set, Trainwreck‘s own Amy Schumer tries to impress rapper-actor Method Man with a few freestyles, and well…it doesn’t go quite well, in the beginning. Trying to rhyme from the dome — “off the top,” as Amy would say, put her in a bind of actually getting a verse/words to come out clear enough.

Once realizing that “freestyle rap” just wasn’t her thing, the comedic maven finally writes her words down on paper and impresses the NYC, Wu-Tang rap veteran.

FLY Review: Amy Schumer Shines In 4-Star Comedy ‘Trainwreck’.

Train Wreck Movie Review

“What if  I told you there was only one doll you could play with forever?” Those were the words Amy (Amy Schumer) and her younger sister Kim (Brie Larson) heard from their absentee father played by Colin Quinn explaining to them why monogamy sucks.  Those words would go on to shape Amy’s adult love life in the movie Trainwreck written by Schumer and directed by Judd Apatow.

When we catch up to adult Amy she has taken her father’s advice literally, her love life consists of nothing but one night stands that she has to be drunk to make it through. She does have a main bae who she goes on regular movie dates with played by WWE Superstar John Cena who has no idea Amy sleeps around.

Even though he has all that muscle, he still somehow manages to come off gay with lines like “I wanted you to be my Crossfit Queen”saddened when Amy ended their “relationship”. The two even engage in what might be one of the funniest sex scenes ever with Cena delivering the worst bedroom lingo ever. In between her one night stands Amy does have a job, she works as a writer at a men’s magazine hysterically named S’Nuff. Her boss played by Tilda Swinton makes a living off pitching misogynistic stories for them to write about. She throws Amy a curve-ball when she tasks her to write a story on Aaron Conners (Bill Hader) a world renown sports surgeon.

Amy’s younger sister Kim is the exact opposite of her as an adult, she’s married and has a stepson (Evan Brinkman) with her husband played by Mike Birbigila. Amy takes every chance she gets to make fun of Kim’s corny husband and her well-mannered stepson who Amy jokes could be gay.

Amy isn’t into sports, and expresses how much she hates them, knowing that revelation her boss thinks she can bring a certain uniqueness to the story she has to write on Aaron originally pitched by her fellow writer.

The two instantly hit it off, Amy looks to just make Aaron another notch on her on old belt but fails miserably when Aaron calls for a second date. During the call, Amy’s loner best friend played by Vanessa Bayer is listening in and they label Aaron derange for asking Amy to go out again.

LeBron James plays himself in the film and is Aaron’s sensitive best friend, he is one of the films biggest surprises as his character has a quite few hilarious scenes in the movie. Looking out for his best friend’s best interest he interrogated Amy asking her “do you hear his name in the wind ?”in a serious but still hilarious exchange among the two.

Schumer/Apatow deliver the perfect summer rom/com with unique role reversal with Amy playing what most would unanimously agree as the guy in the relationship. Schumer and Hader’s on-screen dynamic worked flawlessly as Hader doesn’t have to do much to be funny in the film with Amy doing all of the work. It looks like Judd and Amy are definitely onto something and we hope the two link up together for more films in the future.
