An outsiders view on Jennifer Lawrence

February 26, 2013 | By | 2 Comments

jennifer-lawrence-oscars-hair-makeup-h724I don’t know much about Jennifer Lawrence. I know even less about Kristen Stewart. But their names seem to be popping up everywhere lately. From what I can tell, everyone seems to adore the former and not care as much about the latter. I wonder: is it possible for Lawrence to keep this up? Her success is in its infancy and she is still a rising star. She’s beautiful, but not in a threatening way. She almost seems like an underdog and who doesn’t love underdogs? She’s yet to be overexposed like Justin Bieber recently or the summer of Hootie & the Blowfish in the mid 90s. The sky is limit for Jennifer Lawrence – just like it was for Gregg Jefferies according to my 1988 baseball card pricing guide.

But what about when Jennifer isn’t so fresh? What if she experiences so much success, people stop rooting for her like they stopped rooting for the Yankees and Patriots? How about if all the pressure to be perfect gets to her and she starts to crack like what happened to Britney Spears? How will people feel about her in a couple decades when she’s possibly just a footnote in American entertainment history and “Hollywood Old” like they started calling Julia Roberts a few years ago at the age of 41?

I think it is good to love Jennifer Lawrence and good for Jennifer Lawrence to love every last moment of her fickle fame and preciously fleeting life. Love the hell out of Jennifer Lawrence. Just don’t stop loving her in 25 years when her beauty has faded or even in 5 years if she has to kill more innocent children in the final “Hunger Games” movie.

Right now, Jennifer is like someone who has just been widowed. She has all the love and support in the world. But as days, weeks, months and years go by, others forget. But Jennifer won’t forget. Maybe in 40 years she’ll pop in a tape from last Sunday and remember the way it used to be. That’s especially when it wouldn’t be such a bad idea to send her some fan mail and tell her how much she meant to you.

In other news, Michael Jordan just turned 50.
