What’s the deal with the Oscars?
What’s your take on the upcoming Oscars?
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Jennifer Lawrence explained why she decided to not attend.
“I thought the movie was great,” she said.
“But I think it’s the fact that I don’t have a big screen and they’re taking it away from me.
And I think that it’s going to be a very hard year for me to be in a position to help this movie get out there.
It’s not the movie that I thought it was going to get out to, but it was a great experience.”
The actor was nominated for her performance as Scarlett Johansson in the blockbuster “Fifty Shades of Grey” but the film was widely criticized for its depiction of consensual sex.
Critics also slammed the film’s depiction of sexual violence, which included depictions of Lawrence and co-star Matthew McConaughey being attacked by men.
“The whole movie is like a movie that’s being told in reverse: the violence and the sex is really happening, but Scarlett Johans’s character doesn’t even know what’s happening.
I didn’t know what was going on until I got to the movie,” Lawrence said.
“The whole thing about it is so fucked up,” she continued.
“It’s so fucked-up to have to watch a movie like this in a theater that is not supposed to have a screening room for it, because it’s so obviously bad.
And yet, they’re making it accessible to people who don’t even understand what it is.
It has no value.”
In her interview with THR, Lawrence said she feels the Oscars should be more inclusive, and that she felt uncomfortable watching the film with her father, who has autism.
“There was a moment where we were standing there and my dad looked at me, and he said, ‘Jennifer, you’ve got a bad ass body.
Your body is really, really good.
You look so good.
Your skin is so soft.
I can’t believe you’re so beautiful.
You’ve got great hair.
You can do anything,'” she said of the scene.
Lawrence said she plans to attend the Oscars this year to see how the awards show is handled.
“If I have a chance, I’m definitely going to go see the ceremony,” she told THR.
“Because I don’ want to be treated like a second class citizen.
They’re going the opposite direction, they are trying to be inclusive. “
And then they say they’re going to change the rules.
They’re going the opposite direction, they are trying to be inclusive.
And then I’m going to have my first fight with my mom.
And it’ll be really weird.”
As for how she will cope with the controversy surrounding the film, Lawrence told THR, “I don’t think I’ll have a fight with anyone because I’ve already won a fight.
I’ve been in the business a long time, and you can only go so far in life.
And if I can just step back and look at it, and just be a little more aware of the ways that the world works and how we get hurt, then maybe I can help change things.
But I think I’ve just got to take it one day at a time.”
