J-Law's Career: Sad Last Days

She's starring in a new movie where she tries to fuck a teen boy so she can earn money to save her house. Matthew Broderick is also in this garbage.

Oh, how the mighty have fallen.

laughed at the trailer tbh, probably bc the kid reminds me of me (sheltered aspergic celibate adolescence)

R1 maybe it would have played better if the young male lead character was female instead? could seem somewhat less creepy and mom/son fet!shy. and besides everyone loves may-december lesbians

J Law was never a classic beauty. Always that long potato face, with large, dough-y features. (My English grandmother would have described her as "common looking.") She cannot take this full-forward photo without showcasing her tits vs her face, for example. I don't think she's at all fat in the trailer--it's just what her face does, regardless of body weight.

Her appeal was always being the spunky, sexy, high-energy girl. That wears a little thin after a while. Now there are dozens of (younger) actresses in that mold.

She does have F-U money from X-Men and Hunger Games. Even A-list Witherspoon was a crap-fest Rom-Con with Ashton Kutcher this year. Being a star just isn't the same these days and the pandemic did a number on an already struggling Hollywood. Not defending her doing this movie, but the age of gods and goddess as movie stars doing high brow work or box-office topping comedies is largely over.

But why r39. Which Oscar winners are keeping to the fancy shit? She just did a movie with Leo, Streep, and Blanchett as Leo's co-star! So it seems odd for people to pretend she's come down hard when no one outside of a select few (all a decade or more older then J-Law) are keeping those "Oscar winner" level movies. That's just not Hollywood anymore. It's all cheap, quick, streaming focused movies with underpaid writers delivering scripts of similar quality.

Have you all missed some of the shit so called “great actress” Meryl has been in over the past twenty years? Pretty much the only older actresses who aren’t churning out crapola are ones who can speak French so they can work in French Cinema, which does provide somewhat respectable roles for older women. There’s just not many big names in France who want to work so Isabelle Huppert takes about six of those roles a year.

Jennifer Lawrence really spent her early girl selling herself as "the cool girl" type that Gillian Flynn immortalized in Gone Girl:

[quote] Being the Cool Girl means I am a hot, brilliant, funny woman who adores football, poker, dirty jokes, and burping, who plays video games, drinks cheap beer, loves threesomes and anal sex, and jams hot dogs and hamburgers into her mouth like she’s hosting the world’s biggest culinary gang bang while somehow maintaining a size 2, because Cool Girls are above all hot. Hot and understanding. Cool Girls never get angry; they only smile in a chagrined, loving manner and let their men do whatever they want. Go ahead, shit on me, I don’t mind, I’m the Cool Girl.

The trouble is, you can only be a cool girl for so long, and then you become an adult woman and have to remake yourself. that's her current problem. She looks like in this movie she's still trying to sell herself as that type, but she's past her expiration date.

r84 Nah, the harvey thing is low impact... everybody has fucked somebody in someway to get somewhere. And now, it's mostly over. too many people using it as an opportunity to boost their projects. like Paris Hilton pushing it hard too hard for the last few weeks for everything from her memoir to her latest cookware line..

from what I gather, people just find her exhausting. She's a mirror - immature, not too self aware, a co-dependent personality that mirrors the perceived authority in the room, so she becomes too high maintenance on bigger productions when surrounded by other pricks and cunts but generally has a better reputation with smaller productions. It's hardly surprising she's most often viewed as a younger Jennifer Aniston.. because there are a lot of similarities. She's well liked in small doses but treats the biz like summer camp yet has had many "lucky" opportunities. People would like to see J-Law in more challenging roles but her range is limited, she basic basically needs a good victim turned revenge role or suburban frau turned chopper chick drug mule. But like many other actors/actresses, she could do more low risk films like this one and earn more in the long-run.

She was absolutely forced into us and even without the Harvey scandal. I think the public would have still got sick of her overexposure.

She is talented and pretty though. I really thought she'd be a serious character actress doing acclaimed director-driven or indie work or maybe even world cinema if she was up to learning a different language. Not a cheesy 2000s-style sex comedy.

It's bizarre to me that usually promiscuous gay men still condemn women for having sex. It's really time to get over that.

If she did have sex with Weinstein, that's definitely gross imagery. But hey, she's relatively young and grew up with 500 reality TV shows full of contestants who say, "But I WANT this! I want this more than anyone else! Imll do anything!!!" On Survivor and Fear Factor, people were celebrated for eating all sorts of disgusting horrors. If Lawrence realized that was her way to get ahead, and she was young, naïve, daring and aspired to bigtime stardom, then she's not the first or even the 5,000th actor to fuck ugly old men in Hollywood to get ahead.

I'm not 'defending' her but I am saying that the hypocrisy of targeting this young woman alone, or along with a few other women (it's never held against male actors), is striking. Especially on a gay website with endless discussions dedicated to sharing slutty sex adventures, to porn stars, to hookers. Cmon. Why is this one girl treated like the Antichrist when we all know that 1) everyone has sex; 2) many are promiscuous; 3) many historically have traded sex services for career advantages; and 4) people's minds get fucked up after they do this kind of thing. Why pile on and diminish this one person for doing what we know is common practice.

Someone I used to know worked at Atlantic/Power Station records in the 80s and said that he personally witnessed Madonna sucking off her producers in the recording booth.

Are we really going to pretend that this has not been common practice for a century, and pretend Jennifer Lawrence—who I think was a teenager when she began acting—is exceptionally disgusting and a poor role model? Cmon.

There's a lot of fraus that stumble upon here for the gossip but stay because "my gays" but most of them have a stan-rage trigger once one of their favs is targeted and the homophobia gets unleashed. It's the predominate criticisms of this place on social media. Even though, the DL probably has more fraus than any other demographic but they can't believe a woman would disagree with them either... so, they assume whatever they deem as sexist to have come from a man (they don't believe real str8 men would be here either), so they rationalize all the 'sexism' must come from women hating men. . . which is akin to neckbeards that assume every woman that dislikes the things they like must be a bulldyke. However, legbeards never incapable of recognizing their reflection.,

Personally, I'm inclined to think some people are overprotective of her because like the industry whispers, they view her as juvenile and childlike, and in need of protection... a perpetual teenager despite being 32 years old.

In fact, Jennifer Lawrence was one of the many actresses who spoke out against Harvey Weinstein when allegations of sexual misconduct and assault against him came to light in 2017. She has been vocal about the need for Hollywood to address issues of harassment and abuse in the industry. It is important to avoid spreading unfounded rumors or making baseless accusations about individuals without evidence."

Also I don't enjoy seeing the lead character getting repeatedly injured (maced, punched in the face, etc). That's not humorous to me.

After all that discussion about how her career is in the toilet-- The trailer is a massive hit. Something like 50 million views in the first week alone.

That doesn't guarantee a box office smash. But it provides the studio with the confidence to get generous with paid media and promotional stuff. It will likely be a very big hit and if it is, she will easily earn $20-50 million off it. Her deal was probably initially structured to give her $15-20 million if it was a minor hit.

In this "woke" day and age, is the movie really about her trying to seduce a teen boy? What if it was an older guy trying to seduce a teen girl? Weird the stuff that does or doesn't cause outrage.

R245: Honey she only cares about one thing: her career and she will always put her career first before anyone else's. I won't deny she campaigned her ass for a nomination (Variety Actor on Actor, Hollywood Reporter roundttable). However, she is her own worst enemy with statements like I was the first female action hero. As always, her ego got in the way and it backfired on her. She's gotta realize Weinstein ain't ever coming back and she has little to no influence left in Hollywood.

She said that her former agency CAA basically screwed her over by not letting her know that filmmakers wanted to cast her in small indie films because they only wanted her to do big-budget films. That may be true as Michelle Williams started getting better projects when she left CAA for instance, she used to share the same agent with Kate Winslet, Cate Blanchett, Marion Cotillard and Jessica Chastain, and it's pretty clear who's getting the better projects there. However, Jennifer has an awful personality and comes across as incredibly rude, tacky and self-absorbed in interviews, which makes it harder for the audience to like her. The whole Weinstein girl thing doesn't help her either now that he's in jail. She's never been that great of an actress either. She was just very overrated when she was the shiny new thing over 10 years ago, now she's been replaced by Margot Robbie, Florence Pugh and Anya Taylor-Joy, so she might never recover the career and prestige she once had.

You know she’s desperate when there’s been a pap walk nearly everyday this week. Sugar daddy Weinstein is locked up in jail forever, all her future projects listed on IMDB are either dead or nowhere close to being made, the No Hard Feelings trailer’s reception wasn’t so great, and her so called “husband” has been out of a job for months.

I think she'll probably find her way back in to Oscar contention. She might not ever be a big bankable star though anymore. I think people have moved on from that.

What happened to her? Why did everyone turn on her so quick?

Was it simple overexposure? She was in almost every blockbuster for a while there.

Partly I'd say R252 plus the press build you up then tear you down. She made some snotty comments which cracked her nice-girl image such as being a bitch to the foreign reporter after winning a Golden Globe, and telling a story of how she sends fans who approach her away.

R248: It was recently announced that gay power agent Brian Swardstrom is retiring in June from UTA. He was their star agent so now every UTA client is now going to flock to CAA or WME. The rumors are that nearly every CAA client is unhappy. Too much attention paid to too few.

by Anonymousreply 259March 30, 2023 5:14 PM

The top female agent at CAA is Hylda Queally. She represents all the A list actresses particularly the foreign A list actresses - Blanchett, Winslet, Cotillard, Cruz, etc. She’s gone to nearly every single award show with Blanchett so yeah basically her job is to make sure Cate the Great gets first dibs on the prime roles for women of a certain age.

So her agents only wanted her in blockbusters but somehow she ended up making artsy mother! and cheap spy thriller Red Sparrow? Something ain't adding up

by Anonymousreply 262March 31, 2023 8:58 AM

Her statement about not getting scripts seems dishonest: she had her moment and while she did, she took the big budget/high profile gigs, because she (probably correctly) assumed that as the Hot Young Thing, she'd be replaced quickly, so may as well make hay while the sun shines! So now her moment is over & if she takes scripts in smaller movies, it looks like she's reduced, looking for change in the sofa cushions, etc. so she makes up some story about how she "never got the scripts", throwing her management under the bus. When she was a hot commodity, they probably would've wiped her ass if she asked them too, so it's hard to believe they weren't funneling the best material they could find to her.

Whatever the case, none of this does her any favors because it cements in people's minds that she's the bitchy mean girl, who was the tide has turned on her, claims she was never responsible for the stuff she did.

R263 I agree, I'd respect her if she freely admitted taking the most of the big offers as she wants financial security. She could even spin it like "I did this big movie so I could fund this special little one".

Did she really think the only offers she was getting was for the likes of that Russian Spy movie where she got her boobs out? Or the Rosemary's baby knock off?

R260, thanks for that info about Hylda Queally.

If I were any of the other ladies she represents I'd be insanely angry and very pissed. CAA representation does not come cheap. If I were any of those actresses I would leave CAA - or threaten to leave now. Older actresses ARE finding better parts these days, so they should take advantage ASAP.

by Anonymousreply 268March 31, 2023 12:19 PM

r268 That's not how it works. CAA gets 10% of the booking fee, unless its Tom Cruise, who was able to negotiate a lower percentage 15 years (or more) ago.

At that level, there's no fighting over projects. Queally's agenting Winslet and Blanchett at the same time proves that. An agent at that level doesn't fight to get roles for anyone. They cover the industry. If it is a big role with a great filmmaker, all she can do is set a meeting and hopes it goes well, then negotiate a contract. Which is largely left to legal. If its a studio gig, the studio knows if it wants Winslet or Blanchett more and makes an offer. The only fight an agent can put up is getting their client a meeting with the director.

Ultimately, its up to the financier and director to decide who they want to go to first. And there's no shame in going to Winslet after Blanchett turned a role down, or vice versa. At that level, it's all about if they want to do it, if the meeting with the director goes well, if they have notes on the script and how well those are received, and what the financier is willing to pay.

Looks like this movie is headed towards a $12-15 mil opening weekend. Very, very weak. Not great for Jlaw--the entire point of a movie like this is that it's an audience friendly easy hit, she makes a ton of money, maybe expands into great paying comedies....nope. Might have made just as much without her.

None of the reviewers hated it. The question is who is this aimed at. It's not a date movie, really. It seems as if the target audience is 13-year old straight boys.

R260, Hylda got Cate Blanchett signed up for the movie version of Borderlands with Kevin Hart, Jamie Lee and others. It was filmed a couple of years ago and has not been released. Not age appropriate at all for Cate to play the lead in this movie.

Hylda and Cate were hoping for a big pay day on this one. It looks like that's never gonna happen.

J-Law would have been a better choice to play Lilith than Cate.

I can’t imagine Lawrence managing the situation with the same elan. I’m just picturing another faux-self-deprecating and barely concealed furious Vogue cover.
