    She was cool at the start, but I'm tired her this story "im just like you" etc.

    I still like her but the schtick is a bit old. I like how she was honest about being more closed off now due to fame.

    As for the eating thing ... keep in mind where she lives and works. She's probably not talking about normal women who watch their weight but ano bulimics who think thinner means better, more beautiful, bigger career, etc. They probably think that because it's true. Jlaw works in an industry that demands women looked like starved ally cats and there are plenty of women wrecking themselves for a chance to make it in that industry. Meanwhile she comes along looking "porky" (/eyeroll) and makes it. I"ll bet she's withstood some pressure to lose weight and dealt with naysayers who said she'd never make it. I think her comments are in reaction to that industry and the pressure she's probably had to deal with.

    I'm doubtful she'll hold out forever, though. She'll end up scrawny.

    I hope she doesn't. She'll age overnight.

    Today there were seven of us crammed around the table in the pub and my untrustworthy self was the only woman. That's how it is most of the time when I go out, and how it's been since I was building friendships as a kid. I guess I'll just have to somehow live with Jennifer Lawrence thinking I'm a natural born meanie.

    She's been so hyped as the down-to-earth girl-next-door, the media back lash is bound to be round the corner.

It takes a lot for me to consider someone a true friend, and I don't think I could possibly have more than a handful in my life anyway. Circumstances dictate. It's not like I'm on a warpath against having friends who are girls, but it so happens that currently anyone who I'd said is a friend is a guy. I suppose I'm untrustworthy. I'd rather be untrustworthy than have a crowd of people around me who present all the right appearances for being "friends" but in actual fact are acquaintances who I have ony circumstantial connection to, and will never talk to again once those circumstances are gone.
    I completely agree with you.
    I've always been a loner and I felt awkward around people. This used to make me sad because I didn't have friends growing up but I don't give a fuck anymore.

    I used to only have male friends, but when I moved to the Keys I found some wonderful female friends. We're all chill down here I guess.
    See, Whores, we are good for something. Love, Florida

    ^^ I've got nothing against the idea of forming/having close friendships with other women IRL but right now (and for most of my life) I've found it easier to get on with men. I guess it goes back to mostly being friends with boys when I was young because the girls my age were prissy bitches who'd freak at the idea of getting a smidge of dirt on themselves.

    I don't think she's bright enough for her "schtick" to be contrived. I get the impression that if a thought flits through her mind, it comes straight through her mouth. It's unfiltered and unchecked. A year or so ago, this was seen as unaffected, natural and charming. But as she's become over-exposed, it's becoming a tad wearing.

    I have no issues with her comments on food, exercise, fashion or friends. (In fact, good for her if she's got longstanding friends - it's probably fairly unusual in her business.) As for her frequent falling over, I feel it's most likely because she's clumsy, unaccustomed to skyscraper red carpet heels and probably under the affluence of ilcohol, but who really cares? She's young, pretty, talented - and she'll learn to behave more conventionally and talk in boring old soundbites soon enough. Blah to that.

    I'm watching my daughter go through this right now. Mrs. Mohandas was a chaperone this week to our daughter and three other girls for a field trip to Mount Vernon. When the groups were formed, my daughter said to my wife that she was bummed about her group. My wife asked why and our daughter said because the other girls only like to talk about girly things. I asked her about it later, and said, "You're not interested in girly things?" And she replied, "No. I'm interested in nerdy things." Then, she reminded me that her best friends are these three little boys who are like right out of an elementary school version of Big Bang Theory. I know all of them, and they are great kids. I hope she stays with the nerds.

    I like Jennifer and I don't really think it's a "schtick" either. If anything she's just consistent when she gets asked the same questions over and over again. It's not hard for me to believe that a 23 year old girl from Kentucky who becomes famous, remains grounded. Maybe I'm just hopeful.

    Regarding the friend thing. While I won't go as far to say that I "don't trust" women who aren't friends with other women, I will say that I find it odd. This is solely based on my personal experiences with women who don't have female friends. I often find that the women who say "I don't have girlfriends because I don't like the drama", are typically the one's causing it.
