Jennifer Lawrence (or “JLaw” as a friend calls her, indicating we really are that lazy as a species) had always impressed me as a sensible girl and a fairly talented actress. She was hot as the redneck meth-family girl getting her ass beat by mountain hags in Winter’s Bone. And she wisely didn’t try to upstage Effie Trinket or Woody Harrleson’s demure yet devastating wig in Hunger Games. But then she went and told Marie Claire South Africa (via Radar) that she’s a big fan of Keeping Up With The Kardashians and Dance Moms. That’s unfortunate.
Ms. Lawrence serves up that typical Hollywood starlet interview where she claims to be a stay-at-home mom and not one of those Lohan types who’s always doing the reverse cowgirl on a bottle of Svedka. She loves to be home on a her couch, watching horrific TV guaranteed to drive any thinking person to put a gun in their mouth. Basically she likes all the shows I do except for Kunty Kim & Fam. Even this guttersnipe can find a standard or two in her overnight bag.
“After it’s 11, I’m like, ‘Don’t these kids ever get tired?’ When I’m out, I think about my couch. Like, ‘It would be awesome to be on it right now. I bet there’s an episode of Dance Moms on. Am I missing a new episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians? “I’m just stressed by the idea of missing them. Reality TV is my silver lining,” she jokes. “At the end of the day there’s probably nothing that makes me feel better than junk food and reality TV.”
I admire her stamina. And I don’t mean stamnia in regards to having to wear a chafy bodysuit while squatting on a beach and devouring crustacean. I mean enduring Abby Lee’s repugnant ass forcing children into routines that would totally work at the Crazy Horse in Paris.
