Jennifer LawrenceBoulevard 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:

Four starsSony Pictures early today released the first trailer to the movie starring Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt, where they unexpectedly wake up 90 years early during a 120-year-long journey to an interstellar colony aboard a 5,000-plus passenger spaceship. Here’s the 2:42-minute trailer:

The film, for which Lawrence, 26, is getting paid a whopping $20 million, is generating buzz because it includes her first on-screen sex scene.

Pratt, 37, is perhaps best known for the big screen’s “Jurassic World” last year and television’s “Parks and Recreation” comedy series.

“Passengers” is scheduled for a Dec. 21 release — 91 days, 15 hours and 9 minutes from now, according to Boulevard’s exclusive Jennifer Lawrence “Passengers” Countdown Clock™.

Passengers is about a 5,000-passenger luxury spaceship on a 120-year journey to an interstellar colony. Lawrence, 26, and Pratt are unexpectedly awakened 90 years too early. Romance and Lawrence’s first on-screen sex scene follow — all of which she’s getting $20 million to act out. Pratt, 37, is perhaps best known for 2015’s “Jurassic World” and “Parks and Recreation.”

Pop quiz: Here are three of Louisville’s most profitable exports. Quick, name a fourth

  1. Autos and trucks (Ford)
  2. Home appliances (GE)
  3. Whiskey (Brown-Forman)
  4. __________________

Tick, tock, tick, tock, tick, tock . . . ding!

The obvious answer, of course, is Jennifer Lawrence! The Louisville native earned $46 million this year, making her the world’s highest-paid actress and one of Louisville’s most famous exports.

Imagine Jennifer County, Ky.

If Lawrence, 26, were a Kentucky county based on annual income, she’d be a brand new one — nudging back Owsley ($37 million total) and making Robertson ($24.6 million) a No. 121, according to the latest available Census data. Owsley (pop. 4,755) and Robertson (2,282) are in historically impoverished eastern Kentucky.

Here in Jefferson County, the actress’s $46 million paycheck is strikingly big from a different perspective.

Imagine everyone got paid once a year, and stood in line at the bank to deposit their paychecks at one of two teller windows. Lawrence could stand in a line all by herself to deposit one huge, oversized check, like you see in Publishers Clearing House TV commercials. And 1,738 other people earning the county average $26,473 a year would stand in one very long line for the other teller. It would take their combined earnings to equal Lawrence’s $46 million.

In newest Dior ads, Lawrence brings star power to style

Oscar-winning Louisville native Jennifer Lawrence has been a spokesmodel for Christian Dior since 2012. The legendary French fashion house just released photos for its newest campaign for a fresh line of Diorever bags. (How much are they? Keep reading.)

Lawrence, 26, just named the world’s highest-paid actress ($20 million alone for December’s sci-fi thriller “Passengers”), says the bags are “chic, stylish and cool,” according to Women’s Wear Daily. Photographer Patrick Demarchelier shot the fall campaign in a New York studio, the trade site reports, with minimal props, gray walls and slanted light casting shadows on Lawrence’s prominent cheekbones and off-the-shoulder cable-knit sweaters.

Unless Boulevard’s crack fashion editors are mistaken, Dior describes the bag immediately above as one in Midnight Blue prestige calfskin, with the following details:

  • Reversible flap in Imperial Purple smooth calfskin, Cannage topstitching.
  • Silver-tone jewelry.
  • Adjustable strap.
  • Can be carried in the hand or on the shoulder.
  • Dimensions: 30 x 23 x 16 cm, approximately 12 x 9 x 6 inches.

The other bags appear to be so new, Dior hasn’t added them to its online catalog.

What do they cost? If you have to ask . . . actually, you’ve come to the right place! Boulevard believes these are priced around $3,400. Each. That’s according to Spotted Fashion.

But it’s not a Kelly bag

The ladies who lunch in Anchorage, Glenview, Prospect, and other luxe local redoubts will tell you the famous Hermès bag is the only way to go. Once known as the “Sac à dépêches,” it earned its better-known name after another actress, Grace Kelly, gave it a cameo role in an Alfred Hitchcock film. The backstory, according to Wikipedia:

Kelly bag
$21,935 with tax.

“In 1954, Hitchcock allowed the costume designer Edith Head to purchase Hermès accessories for the film ‘To Catch a Thief,’ starring Grace Kelly. According to Head, Kelly ‘fell in love’ with the bag. Within months of her 1956 marriage to Prince Rainier III, the pregnant Princess of Monaco was photographed using the handbag to shield her growing belly from the paparazzi. That photograph was featured in Life magazine.”

Naturellement, you won’t see Lawrence carrying anything near the paparazzi but Dior. Still, given her eye-popping salary, she could well afford any number of Kelly bags, which this year sell for between $10,000 and $20,000-plus.
