Jennifer Lawrence Slams Criticism of Sexy Dress

Jennifer Lawrence Slams Criticism of Sexy Dress

The Academy Award-winning actress donned a revealing outfit for the photo call, which was staged at a London hotel on a bitterly cold day in the United Kingdom capital, but her "Red Sparrow" co-star - who wore a thick coat for the shoot - thinks Jennifer found herself in an impossible position. Users criticized the expectations that women in Hollywood have to fulfill while their male counterparts don't have to try almost as hard.

But Lawrence, who has never been one to take take criticism without a fight when she feels its unwarranted, hit back on social media. After some fans got hot over a pic of J-Law wearing a dress in the cold, she called their outrage 'utterly ridiculous'. Twitter users replied to the Versace account's photo of her in the velvet gown with comments such as, "I've seen your handsome suits and coats". I was outside for five minutes.

"I would have stood in the snow for that dress".

Lawrence called the controversy "sexist", "ridiculous", and "not feminism".

Jennifer said creating controversy over "silly innocuous things" such as what she chooses to wear is "not moving us forward". It is creating silly distractions from the real issues.

"Get a grip people", she finished.

"Timothée, I'm waiting for him to get a little bit older, you know?" But then look at Jennifer Lawrence.

Joel claimed that Jennifer would have angered someone, regardless of whether she chose to wear the Versace dress or not.

"I'm going to swing right in there as soon as he's, like, 30", she said.

"He's old enough to say that, right?" She is you. She is me.

Website Jezebel has published an article calling for someone to "Please give Lawrence a dang coat" writing that she seems "rather vulnerable to the elements". "Still, I think her decision to wear this and freeze also shows that the roles men and women feel they need to play are firmly embedded in our society", another user pointed out.
