Jennifer Lawrence used to be a huge star whose box office receipts were legendary, but since she began to open her hateful mouth, her career is nose-diving. At 19, she made the hit movie Winter’s Bone. One year later, she made X-Men and scored another huge hit. She then followed that up with The Hunger Games that grossed an incredible $408 million dollars. All of this before she turned twenty two.
According to Breitbart:
At this point it seemed as though Lawrence could do no wrong. Even the junky horror film House at the End of the Street, something she probably signed on to before becoming a star, opened to number one and eventually grossed $32 million, despite all those horrific reviews.
From there it was Oscar time with Silver Linings Playbook, another ($132M domestic) smash, especially for a quirky drama. Lawrence’s zenith was such that the second Hunger Games out-grossed the first ($424M); American Hustle out-grossed Silver Linings ($150M), and X-Men: Days of Future Past out-grossed First Class ($233M).
And we still liked her.
Then tragedy struck. She met Lena Dunham, the outspoken left-wing false rape accuser. It’s been downhill ever since (edited for language).
The epic fall began with Lawrence writing a column for Dunham’s feminist website Lenny Letter, where she addressed the wage gap between the gajillions she makes and the gajillions her male co-stars make. Rather than attack the (leftwing) Hollywood system, she attacked — wait for it, wait for it — men, and did so in the most arrogant, self-regarding way imaginable:
I’m even the a**hole who didn’t do anything about the ice-bucket challenge — which was saving lives — because it started to feel more like a “trend” than a cause. I should have written a check, but I f**king forgot, okay? I’m not perfect. But with a lot of talk comes change, so I want to be honest and open and, fingers crossed, not p**s anyone off. …
I’m over trying to find the “adorable” way to state my opinion and still be likable! F**k that. I don’t think I’ve ever worked for a man in charge who spent time contemplating what angle he should use to have his voice heard.
The hot air could float a zeppelin.
Then Lawrence goes after Christians:
All those people holding their crucifixes, which may as well be pitchforks, thinking they’re fighting the good fight. I grew up in Kentucky. I know how they are. …
My view on the election is pretty cut and dried: If Donald Trump is president of the United States, it will be the end of the world. And he’s also the best thing to happen to the Democrats ever.
Just after she released that statement, her movie The Hunger Games: Mockingjay came out and was expected to take in $124 million the first weekend and over $400 million all together. It grossed $281 million. Her next movie, Jot grossed just $56 million for a huge loss. Then came X-Men: Apocalypse ($155M) and Passengers — a splashy, $110 million sci-fi/romantic thriller powered by her and Chris Pratt’s star power — barely squeaked over the $100M mark.
This week, her movie Mother come out and it will be interesting to see if it too flops in the box office. Face it, when you alienate half the country, your numbers are sure to fall and your career with it.
