Jennifer Lawrence: "Rape Scream" Comment Angers Fans

by at . Comments

Uh-oh. Like the rest of the known world, we here at THG are big fans of Jennifer Lawrence's acting as well as her charming public persona.

Unfortunately, the Mockingjay actress dropped the ball in a major way during a recent event at the Cannes Film Festival.

An article for Vulture features several anecdotes from a reporter who hung out with Lawrence at the Vanity Fair Cannes party. She shared her hiccup cure, met Justin Bieber...and then made an unfortunate comment that's now creating controversy.

Upon encountering Oscar-winning director Alfonso Cuaron, J-Law reportedly squealed with delight before telling the filmmaker "I broke out my rape scream for you."

Jennifer, of course, didn't intend for the comment to go public, but she's been in Hollywood long enough at this point that she should know nothing she says (especially at an industry event) is ever really private. 

Fans have already expressed their displeasure at the joke on Twitter, but Lawrence has yet to respond or apologize.

Part of Jen's appeal is that she seems to be honest and uncensored almost to a fault. Heck, the actress once happily shared a story in which she "got wasted" and puked in front of Miley Cyrus.

This time, however, Jen may have unintentionally shown fans a bit too much of her private side. Here's hoping she does some damage control before there's any permanent harm to her career.


Shove this article up your ass!! Do the article writers not have life?? Write something worth reading..there is tons of news out there worth writing about! So please find something decent to write about and not some second hand comment of someone making a joke! Other people make worse jokes than this everyday! So, shut up!


Oh come on!...all this is speculation...unless there is video or it's coming from an interview, it's just speculation. Not to mention the fact that Uproxx has already written about the validity of the "displeasure on Twitter" and all the tweets seem to come back to this gossip site. Who paid YOU The Hollywood Gossip to try to make a big deal out of nothing?...a few days before X-Men hits theaters?. There was no activity on Twitter at all about this...none. I'm not holding an actress accountable to a comment that they allegedly made. Richard Lawson (Vanity Fair) was also at the party and mentioned Lawrence meeting Cuaron but made NO MENTION at all about the alleged comment...and he would have if he thought it relevant. It's also important to remember that Jada Yuan, who wrote the article wrote on Twitter that the article was mostly SATIRICAL. Whatever you're trying to do here won't work.


Oh please. A harmless joking comment someone allegedly overheard second hand. Big deal. Didn't see any reaction on twitter or elsewhere because people (a) have lives and (b) have a sense of humor. So take your malicious article and shove it.
