Jennifer Lawrence on Miley Cyrus: Young Sex Sells, For Some Disgusting Reason

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Suffice it to say, Jennifer Lawrence is the anti-Miley Cyrus.

When the Catching Fire star was asked about the sexualization of young women in Hollywood like the "Wrecking Ball" singer, she did not hold back.

“It is a part of the entertainment industry that sells,” the actress said on BBC's Newsnight. "For some disgusting reason, young sex sells even more.”

The latter's recent antics include lighting up on stage and Twerking with a dwark in an ultra-revealing outfit as she accepted an award at Sunday's MTV EMAs.

The former is content to just let her work do the talking.

"It's not really something that I worry about because I feel like everybody's kind of got their own path,” Jen told the BBC, without naming names.

"They have their own way of finding themselves and for some people that's how they feel best, that's how they feel sexy, that's how they want to perform."

"I am just saying to each their own," Lawrence added diplomatically, when the interviewer mentioned Miley Cyrus twerking, dwarves and so forth.

Jen, who attended the Catching Fire premiere with Miley's ex-fiancee Liam Hemsworth, her co-star in The Hunger Games trilogy, is very self-aware, however.

She says she makes "conscious decisions" to be a role model.

"Growing up I didn't have a female hero the way that Katniss is," she said of her movie character. "I think she's a wonderful role model for young girls."

"I'm just really happy that they have a character like that.”

Not exactly fightin' words from a true class act, and a woman whose talent matches her maturity. But it's pretty clear where she stands on such antics.

We gotta ask: Who's the better celebrity role model ...


81% of people think Jennifer Lawrence is so beautiful she can say what she wants on Miley Cyrus!


Miley is like light years away from Jennifer. Jennifer is definitely a better role model.


so even a MONGOL can be "famous" these day's? (yep, sorry for that)


Young sex sells because half the equation is young females with a lack of brain cells. They have been groomed by a society that doesn't find talent to be beneficial. As long as you are willing to spread your legs on camera then thats what matters most. In a liberal driven society its commonplace to exploit everything. To feed this behavior it's also necessary to condemn Christianity and a moral base. Damn sure can't pull it off with a conscious in the way - now can we.

I don't think religion's play a role period. Atheist don't really have anyone watching their every move. Pointing out every flaw that doesn't line up with what they practice. There's good and bad people in every belief

@ lynn

I think you are missing the point. There are a lot more Christians in this country than atheists or Muslims or any other. Muslims cut your head off for being gay but Christians are demoralized for their beleifs! The idea is to wash away any moralistic upbringing so the snakes can feast on the youth. Then the media (snakes) can package it with the appearance that THIS IS THE WAY (REALITY PORN) to be accepted. Morals & Self respect- that's what I'm talking.
