Boulevard reviews the latest media coverage of the Oscar-winning Louisville native in our exclusive Jennifer Lawrence Diary™. Today’s news, rated on a scale of 1-5 stars:
Lawrence was trashing her Beverly Hills house — figuratively, at any rate — not long after she snapped it up for $8.2 million in October 2014. The 5,500-square-foot bachelorette pad’s provenance was apparently problematical. “It’s Ellen [DeGeneres]’s old house,” Lawrence said, according to Pop Sugar. “It was Jessica Simpson‘s old house. It’s like the neighborhood whore. I was outside and some girl was like, ‘I grew up in this house.’ Beat it, kid. Everybody’s lived in this house.”
Now, pushing two years later, that kid would have plenty of company on the street outside, according to this just-published MSN story:
“There are 10 [paparazzi] sleeping outside my house, and I see them every morning and it’s not lovely,” 25-year-old Lawrence says. “I’ve talked about it a lot with other actors who have the same problems, but we don’t really like to complain about it because if we do people go, ‘Shut up, millionaires,’ and say, ‘you’re so lucky.’ And yes, we are lucky, but I deserve the right to have control over my image. I would prefer that the only time somebody sees me is when I am in a film or in character or if I am promoting a movie.”
Curbed Los Angeles says Lawrence’s house in the guarded Hidden Valley enclave sold for $6.4 million only a year before she bought it from DeGeneres for nearly $2 million more. For those 10 men who’d love to come inside to snap pictures, Curbed offers this inside tour — including the entrance, with the garage gate open:
For not being all judge-y about Lawrence’s poor-me travails, Boulevard gives MSN three stars!
