If you took a peek on CinemaScore this weekend, you probably saw mother! had an “F” rating and instead went with the rest of the world to see It, which remained at the top of the weekend box office for the second week in a row. Even though critics have given the Darren Aronofsky-directed mother! a nearly 70% Rotten Tomatoes rating, viewers have likely renamed the movie mother!fucker, I can’t believe I spent $20 to see this at the fancy movie theater in town.
Jennifer Lawrence went on Late Night With Seth Meyers to promote mother!, which is making audiences scream refund! And it wouldn’t be a Jennifer Lawrence appearance without some goofy story about how she’s a wreck like the rest of us. Also, Jennifer and Seth were drinking wine during the interview and JLaw seemed way relaxed and it’s not like she’s a quiet drunk. So – fun story (via EW)! She says she got in a “bar fight!” Quotes are being utilized because it doesn’t sound like an actual bar fight. Traditionally, bar fights include fists being thrown, skulls being cracked, and the authorities being summoned. This involved a lot of beer being splashed around.
Jennifer Lawrence made her long-awaited return to the Toronto International Film Festival yesterday for the premiere of mother!, a film which will reportedly make you say “What in the fuck?” in either the good way or the bad way. JLaw didn’t trip up the red carpet, but she did arrive looking like the madame of a My Fair Lady-inspired cathouse. “You could do more than dance all night, but it’s gonna cost you an extra $200, hun. And I don’t want to hear about the ‘rain’ in Spain falling anywhere but the plain, you catch my drift?”
I get about 98% of her Dolce & Gabbana look here (sparkles, ribbons, boobies – all major players in a razzle-dazzle moment). But then my eyes got to the shoes and I was very confuse.
No, not that kind. Although it would be pretty funny to read about Jennifer Lawrence acting SO HARD, she shot a rubber birth control disc out of her business like a Frisbee and almost took out an assistant director, a gaffer, and the craft service table.
After about a year of dating, Jennifer Lawrence and her director-turned-assistant producer (that was my extremely lame attempt at a film industry-themed sex joke) Darren Aronofsy made their red carpet debut. Actually, it’s not really a red carpet so much as it’s a grey laminate floor. And it’s really only a relationship debut if you consider the definition of a debut to include posing for a picture in the vicinity of each other at the photocall for the movie you made together. You know what? When you’re dealing with two people who stopped working it for the paps back in November, you take what you can get.
Jennifer and Darren, as well as their mother! co-stars Javier Bardem and Michelle Pfeiffer, attended the photocall for their creepy (and so far well received) movie at the Venice Film Festival today. Jennifer and Darren decided not to stand next to each other, which is smart. I’ve always believed that getting attention is a marathon, not a sprint. Pace your PDA. You’ve got to save something for TIFF, you know?
Although there is a potential issue I can foresee. I know I’m supposed to be caring that Jennifer Lawrence and Darren Aronofsky stood adjacent to each other, but my eyes are being drawn to more exciting visions. One, Michelle Pfeiffer, who is serving up an extra-hot heaping helping of steal-your-man sex-in-sofa upholstery. Two, whatever the hell hair color is happening on Javier Bardem’s head. Someone get Javier a Clairol Nice’n Easy customer service rep on the phone and ask what they would recommend to tone down the brassiness from Autumn Chestnut to Cool Cappuccino.
Here’s more from the photocall, as well as some pics from the premiere today:
This past weekend’s events in Charlottesville, VA left anyone equipped with a soul and a brain outraged and saddened. One way people are helping fight these bullshit alt-right and white supremacist dicks is to publicly identify them. Twitter user YesYoureRacist has been posting pics from the bigoted “Unite The Right” march and rally and identifying the creepshow, Party City-shopping participants. (One is from my home state of Massachusetts. How proud we are! *glare* Celebrities are helping out as well. This would include Ms. Jennifer Lawrence.
