Jennifer Lawrence Officials Joins Twitter

Jennifer Lawrence is going public! The 29-year-old Oscar winner has admitted to having a private social media account in the past, but earlier this week, she went public on her own verified Twitter platform. 

Lawrence is using her new account, @JLawrence_RepUs, which first tweeted on Tuesday, to speak out against racial injustice, actively supporting the organization Represent Us. 

Lawrence has a position on the board of Represent Us. Other famous board members include actor Ed Helms and The Big Short writer and director Adam McKay. The organization is dedicated to “pursuing federal reform” in relation to elections.  In her first tweet, Lawrence shared a Represent Us video featuring Omar Epps discussing the high percentage of incarcerated black men in America. 

Lawrence’s second tweet features a personal statement from the actress calling for justice in the case of Breonna Taylor. 

On March 13, Taylor was killed by Louisville Metro Police. She and her boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, were in their own home when police made a late-night raid on the wrong address, looking for someone who had been taken into police custody hours earlier. Taylor was shot eight times. She was 26. 

There have been no arrests made in the case of Taylor and the officers responsible for her death are still employed by the Louisville Metro Police. 

“As a Louisvillian, as a human being, I cannot be silent,” Kentucky native Lawrence wrote on Wednesday. “I join all those who are speaking out against this grave injustice, calling upon Attorney General Daniel Cameron to take immediate action to hold those responsible for her death accountable.”

Lawrence noted that the longer it takes for the officers involved in Taylor’s death to be arrested, “the more trust erodes.” 

“We must not allow the erasure of Black women to continue in America,” Lawrence concluded. “As many activists and leaders have been imploring for years: #SayHerName.” Other stars like Beyoncé, Jada Pinkett Smith, Alicia Keys, Cardi B, and more have spoken out in the wake of Taylor’s death

J-Law Eye for Possible ‘The Hunger’ Remake

J-Law Eye for Possible ‘The Hunger’ Remake

Based on Hollywood’s continued obsession with vampires, the bloodsuckers will apparently never go out of fashion, and with so many different ways to approach the mythology, it appears that filmmakers won’t be running out of ideas any time soon, either. Although generally associated with the horror genre, vampires have also been used in everything from action movies and romance to sci-fi and comedy.

The standard tropes of vampirism can constantly be refreshed, reinvented and updated for modern audiences to offer fresh perspectives on such well-known archetypes, and seeing as the movie business isn’t shy on cannibalizing their own back catalogue to remake anything with even the slightest hint of name recognition, we’ve now heard that a new version of cult classic vampire flick The Hunger is reportedly in the early stages of development.

According to our sources – the same ones who told us National Treasure 3Now You See Me 3and Scream 5 were in the works long before any of them were confirmed – Jennifer Lawrence is being eyed for one of the two female leads to play one third of the love triangle between an undead couple and a human scientist, with Moon and Warcraft’s Duncan Jones said to be on the shortlist to write and direct. Though at this point, it’s unclear if either has been approached.

Of course, Jones might not be too keen to sign on given that David Bowie took second billing in the 1983 original and the filmmaker has been keen to distance himself from his father’s legacy, while Lawrence seems to be a lot more picky about her projects these days now that her contractual obligations to the X-Men franchise have been fulfilled. But they’re definitely two names that the studio are interested in, as is Anya Taylor-Joy, we’re told.

Tony Scott’s movie was a critical and commercial disappointment when it was first released, but in the decades since, The Hunger has gone on to become a firm cult favorite, and given the level of talent that are being sought for the remake, it looks like the latest in the never-ending line of vampire movies is being viewed as a high-priority project.

Jennifer Lawrence Getting Married This Weekend, Menu’s Over the Top

Jennifer Lawrence is about to walk down the aisle this weekend — but the big scoop here is what she and her guests will feast on … a smorgasbord of fancy eats and drinks.

We got some deets on JLaw’s wedding — which is going down Saturday at a swanky venue in Rhode Island, 8 months after she got engaged. We gotta say, for a relatively short engagement … they’ve put together a pretty elaborate affair.

Clearly, Jen and hubby-to-be Cooke Maroney pulled out all the stops … hiring celeb wedding planner Mark Seed to do the party for about 150 people.

Let’s start with the grub, shall we? According to the menu, folks are gonna have their pick from a variety of hors d’oeuvres …

— sweet potato flat cakes
— brussels sprouts with cured egg yolk
— smoked pork belly with pickled apple
— salt cod beignet

Moving on to the main course options — here’s what Jen and Cooke, or their hired help, will be serving up …

— either wood-roasted fish with herbs and lemon-infused butter OR …
— 5-week-aged leg of beef with forager’s sauce.

There are veggies too — heirloom roasted carrots, smoked new potatoes, whey braised cabbage … blah, blah, blah. Let’s get to the good good.

Dessert’s coming in hot!

— fire-baked sourdough bread pudding with chocolate
— salted caramel and fresh apple
— cauldron fritters with bourbon cream and cinnamon sugar
— house-made marshmallow s’mores.

They have S’MORES, y’all.

As for drinks, specialty cocktails appear to boil down to either a bourbon old-fashioned or gin cucumber lavender champagnes … served at a cash bar. JK!!!

Like we said, it’s gonna be extravagant. Dare we say … decadent???

Happy Birthday Jennifer!


Happy 29th Birthday J-Law!

Jennifer Lawrence to Star in, Produce True-Life Mafia Story ‘Mob Girl’

‘The Young Pope’ filmmaker Paolo Sorrentino will direct the adaptation for Makeready.

Jennifer Lawrence and The Young Pope director Paolo Sorrentino are teaming on Mob Girl, a feature adaptation of a true-crime story for Makeready, the content studio founded by Brad Westson.

Lawrence will star in and also produce the adaptation of the book by Teresa Carpenter along with Justine Polsky via the duo’s banner, Excellent Cadaver, Makeready said Wednesday. Sorrentino and Lorenzo Mieli will also produce.

Angelina Burnett, a writer-producer who has worked on such shows as The Americans and Halt and Catch Fire, has been hired to pen the script.

Mob Girl centers on Arlyne Brickman, a woman who grew up among racketeers and mobsters on the Lower East Side of New York City. From dating the wise guys to then running errands for them, she became a “mob girlfriend” who then wanted a piece of the action herself. She eventually became a police informant and major witness in the government’s case against the Colombo crime family.

“Seeing this story from a woman’s point of view is a fresh and exciting approach to telling a classic mob story,” said Weston in a statement.

Makeready partner and head of film Pam Abdy and Natalie Williams will oversee for the studio.

Mob Girl marks the first project under the recently announced first-look film deal between Lawrence’s Excellent Cadaver and Makeready. Lawrence is currently shooting A24’s untitled soldier drama, which is being helmed by stage director turned first-time filmmaker Lila Neugebauer. Lawrence and Polsky are producing the feature along with Scott Rudin and Eli Bush.

Sorrentino and Miele produced The Young Pope, which starred Jude Law, for HBO. The duo are currently in production on the follow-up, The New Pope, with John Malkovich joining the Law-led cast. Both series were created and directed by Sorrentino.

Lawrence is repped by LBI Entertainment and Hansen Jacobson. Sorrentino is repped by UTA. Burnett is repped by Manage-ment and Gang Tyre. ICM Partners repped the author in the book deal.
