Celebrity gossip sites are nothing new to us as a movie-going culture, but when Hollywood finds a new darling - especially one that's body-positive, friendly, and unafraid to eat the ground every once in a while - the rags go into a tizzy.
That said, Jennifer Lawrence has had a long line of supposed rivalries, problems, and beef with several of her fellow starlets that have all turned out to be nothing but fake.
Interesting, though, that all of this drama involves other starlets in stories that constantly revolve around woman vs. woman - to which Lawrence seems to give a big 'as if' in response. Check out some highlights below!
1. VS. Miley Cyrus
The Rags Said: Miley was apparently furious about Liam Hemsworth hanging out and having heart-to-hearts with his co-star from The Hunger Games. "Like, so mad," as the pinnacles of modern journalism might say. Hemsworth apparently gushed about Lawrence's kindness in several interviews, and post-breakup Miley has apparently been in a fit of rage ever since.
Reality: When you're on set with someone for an extended amount of time, you generally learn to become friends or at least be civil - so, with many reports of Lawrence's personality being warm and welcome, it's not hard to see why her castmates would think of her in a positive light. Hemsworth was on set post-breakup, and found light in Jennifer's personality: "[She] is so honest and laughs all day long, I’m much happier." More than likely, she was, you know, a decent human being and went out of her way to make sure her castmates were happy.
2. VS. Lupita Nyong'o
The Rags Said: After award-winning actress Lupita Nyong'o (who we'll see next in [The Jungle Book](movie:1038643) and [Star Wars: Episode VII](movie:711158)) took home her Oscar, tabloids exploded with Jennifer's supposed jealousy of the new "It Girl" of 2014.
Reality: Lawrence voted for Nyong'o to win that Oscar and fully supported her fellow actress' climb to the top. “I was very happy I voted for Lupita. It’s beautiful when you watch something good happen to somebody when it’s well deserved,” she said.
3. VS. Kristen Stewart
The Rags Said: An expansive list of apparent drama floated around celebrity gossip sites - with Lawrence apparently 'stealing' Robert Pattinson from Stewart to a complete 180 of a story, where Stewart suddenly started dating Lawrence's most recent ex. Jealousy and spiteful words were quoted from "sources and close friends" of the starlets, making it seem like some kind of all-out war was about to break out within the Young Adult film world.
Reality: Kristen and Jennifer are actually really, really good friends. Said Lawrence, “There was something in a magazine, and I was like, ‘Oh, my God, that’s hilarious,’ because Kristen and I are friends. I actually texted her a picture of it and was like, ‘Just so you know, this is absolutely true.’”
In essence, it really seems like Jennifer Lawrence is a pretty down-to-earth person who has some of the craziest celebrity interactions ever - in that they're very often positive, if awkward experiences (see: puking in front of Miley Cyrus at a party).
