Joan Rivers is calling out Jennifer Lawrence for saying that the old crone is a bad influenece on girls. Katniss told Barbara Walters that she thinks shows like Rivers’ Fashion Police tell the youngin’s that it’s OK to ridicule the way people look. Lawrence has told anyone who’ll listen that she hates the Hollywood culture of Photoshopping and crash dieting. Rivers isn’t buying it. she thinks that it’s all an act Lawrence is doing to look cool. She told The New York Post that,
“My New Year’s resolution is [ensuring] Jennifer Lawrence grows up and realizes how lucky she is and calms down. I love that she’s telling everyone how wrong it is to worry about retouching and body image, and meanwhile, she has been touched up more than a choir boy at the Vatican. Look at her posters. She doesn’t have a nose, she has two holes. She just has to learn, don’t talk if you’re doing it.”
She’s got a point. Priests do like little boys. Also, Lawrence’s photos get retouched all the time. There is no way to escape that shit in celebrity culture. Vanity Fair doesn’t want muffin tops on their cover. For all the innate hypocrisy, women like to see their women anorexic. If Jennifer Lawrence was really disgusted she could quit the business and write a blog calling out Hollywood that nobody will care about like others before her. Rivers may be many things: scary, mean, the Crypt Keeper physically composed entirely of dead sailors rendered flesh, but she is pretty good at calling people on their bullshit. If she was a few hundred years younger, I’d do her.
