Jennifer Lawrence Fat Shaming Interview
Is labelling somebody ‘fat’ on television a punishable offence? Not yet, but if Jennifer Lawrence had anything to do with it, it would be!
Taking the fat-shaming habits of the media to task, Jennifer told Barbara Walters that “it should be illegal to call somebody fat on TV.”
Jennifer, who has been called fat by the media in the past, slammed the industry for mining people’s physical appearance for laughs.
“Why is humiliating people funny?” she asked, before coming clean, “I get it, I do it too. We all do it.”
However, she argued that the media needs to take responsibility for the effect it has on the younger generation, who are picking up how to look and ‘act cool’ from television.
“All of the sudden, being funny is making fun of the girl that’s wearing an ugly dress,” the American Hustle star argued.
“If we’re regulating cigarettes and sex and cuss words because of the effect it has on our younger generation, why aren’t we regulating things like calling somebody fat?”
This starlet is one smart cookie — we love a Hollywood star who has the balls to question the norm!
The interview was part of Barbara Walter’s upcoming TV special The 10 Most Fascinating People of the Year. It is little wonder the Jennifer has made that list.
Kim Kardashian’s Waxing/Mothering Skills
How young is too young to begin a waxing regime?
If Kim Kardashian’s social media followers have a say, six months is a bit too young…
Kim has been accused of shaping her and partner Kanye West’s baby’s eyebrows after she posted a photograph of the perfectly browed baby on Instagram.
Fans compared the picture to one previously posted in November, where baby North’s eyebrows were a little more… bushy.
One follower commented, “I’m not even kidding I think Kim Kardashian waxed her daughter’s eyebrows.”
Another claimed, “Kim K definitely waxed her baby’s unibrow.”
Kim responded with a humour that has become typical for her in the waves of criticism hurled at her recently, “Do people really think I would wax my daughters eyebrows so young? Come on, I’d wait until she’s at least 2 1/2!”
That didn’t seem to go down so well with her followers, causing Kim to backtrack, “I’m kidding!!! Its pretty sick for people to insinuate that I would wax my daughter’s eyebrows. They are thick, natural and amazing!”
Do you think Kim has had a hand in North’s amazing and on-trend thick eyebrows?
Bradley Cooper’s Drug and Alcohol Battle
Bradley has admitted in an interview with GQ that his struggles with drugs and alcohol almost drove him to suicide during his time on hit television show Alias.
“If I continued it, I was really going to sabotage my whole life,” Bradley admitted “I think work was getting f—ed up.”
Things were getting so bad that Bradley was only working three days a week before getting further sidelined in the second season due to his poor efforts.
“Then next thing you know, I was like, ‘I want to f—ing kill myself,'” he revealed.
He asked the show’s director JJ Abrahams to write him out of the show, despite not having any back-up plan.
“He probably would have fired me anyway,” the blue-eyed babe confessed.
Bradley says he came to terms with the fact that the business “just didn’t want” him, and quit acting for a year.
Not long after that year was over, Bradley was cast in The Wedding Crashers, and his career exploded, as he followed up with The Hangover franchise and was nominated for an Oscar for his role in Silver Linings Playbook.
Bradley has since realised that he is able to sucessfully function in the entertainment industry without the assistance of drugs and alcohol.
“I was doing these movies and I got to meet Sandra Bullock and meet these people and work with them and I’m sober,” he said “I was rediscovering myself in this workplace, and it was wonderful.”
We’ve got to say, we’re pretty stoked that Bradley came out of the other end of his ordeal in one piece!
