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:
With 129 days before Jennifer Lawrence‘s $20-million payday hits theaters Dec. 21, Entertainment Weekly’s landed the first still photos (see, top) from the sci-fi adventure about a 5,000-passenger luxury spaceship on a 120-year journey to an interstellar colony. Lawrence and co-star Chris Pratt are rudely awakened 90 years too early.
“Alone in outer space with a giant ship as their personal playground,” pants the magazine’s Sara Vilkomerson, “they begin to fall in love just as it becomes apparent the ship is malfunctioning and endangering its entire population.”
And Delta Airlines passengers thought they had trouble last week!
Vilkomerson asked director Morten Tyldum (Oscar-nominated for 2014’s “The Imitation Game“) what it was like working with two of Hollywood’s hottest stars, and his response was enough to put us right to sleep:
“They’re so great together, and both of them are so hard-working,” he z-z-z-z-z-z-ed. “They take the characters so seriously and bring so much to the roles with charm and intelligence and charisma. They really went for it and it is phenomenal to watch.”
Whatever the chemistry, this much is clear: The jaw-dropping $20 million producers are paying Lawrence for the movie made her one of Tinsel Town’s most gravity-defying actresses.
Speaking of countdowns…
Lawrence’s birthday is Monday; she’ll be 26! It’ll be hard to top last year’s celebration with Kardashian momster Kris Jenner, a surprise bash that produced that infamous photo of the two in bed together. Lawrence, a big fan of of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” told The New York Times her two best friends (she didn’t say which ones) planned a big surprise within the surprise, according to People magazine.
Just as her pals started singing “Happy Birthday,” the actress said, “Kris Jenner comes out holding my cake, which is a pile of s—, with a sign that says, ‘Happy Birthday You Pile of S—.’ My knees buckled.”
And they say the Kardashians are trailer trash on steroids.
