Jennifer Lawrence: Slammed For Defending Ryan Seacrest, Appearing Drunk on Red Carpet

by at . Comments

Oh, how the mighty have fallen.

We're referring, of course, not to the literal Jennifer Lawrence falls that were once such a common occurrence on red carpets, but rather to the slow decline of what previously seemed to be one of the sturdiest careers in Hollywood.

Although come to think of it, based on her recent descriptions of her own booze intake, we wouldn't be surprised to see Jen take an actual tumble again soon.

Usually, around this time of year, J-Law is wrapping up a promising Oscar campaign.

These days, however, she's promoting the poorly-received spy snoozer Red Sparrow, and thus far, the press tour has been about as abysmal as the film's reviews.

Lawrence sat down for an interview with Howard Stern this week, and in a true sign of how much things have changed since the early days of the shock jock's career, it was Jen who created a minor scandal with her comments.

While she's not nominated this year, Lawrence will be in attendance at the Oscars, and Stern asked if she'll be chatting with E! News before the ceremony, despite recent sexual harassment allegations against Ryan Seacrest.

“I don’t know about the Ryan Seacrest thing," Lawrence replied.

“I think it is scary, you know. He has not been to trial for anything. I am not a judge. I am not a jury, you know,” she said. “I don’t know… that is where this stuff gets tricky.”

As many have pointed out Harvey Weinstein also hasn't "been to trial for anything" but Lawrence gleefully called him a “boil on the ass of Hollywood” several times in the past week.

While she's certainly not wrong in that assessment of Weinstein, the fact that she seems more willing to believe her fellow famous actresses than the mid-level E! employees who accused Seacrest has prompted many to accuse Jen of hypocrisy.

This is far from the first time that Lawrence has made comments that don't quite align with the feminist agenda she usually espouses.

Of course, in today's climate, it's more important than ever that stars remain consistent in their messaging.

For the most part, Jen has done just that quite admirably, which makes her occasional slip-ups all the more glaring.

Now a new theory has emerged about why Jen hasn't been as poised as usual during her current promotional tour.

Jen has sat down with Andy Cohen twice this week and during their second interview, she revealed that she got drunk on the set of Watch What Happens Live before proceeding to the New York premiere of Red Sparrow.

"I did get drunk at your thing,” Lawrence admitted on Cohen's SiriusXM show.

“Can we look at the premiere photos please? I look like I had had electroshock therapy.”

Lawrence continued:

“In my head I’m like, ‘I’m a goth dream,’ and then I looked at the photos and I’m like, ‘I’m a goth dream on crack.’"

“My eyes were like ‘I’m not drunk!’” she added.

Booziness has always been a part of Jen's public persona, and it's likely that she was at least partially joking.

Still, if Jen isn't more careful when discussing sensitive topics in public, she'll soon have fans imploring her to do her drinking at home.
