Default Jennifer Lawrence Tells Adam Sandler Why She’s Rude Fans

Fan encounters are inevitable for Jennifer Lawrence and Adam Sandler, two of today’s biggest stars. But in a joint interview as part of Variety‘s “Actors on Actors” series, Lawrence and Sandler shared how they avoid undesirable exchanges in public.

“Once I enter a public place, I become incredibly rude. I turn into a huge a–hole,” Lawrence said. “That’s my only way of defending myself.”

The actress attested that comedians, such as her famously friendly pal Amy Schumer, have a harder time refraining from interactions because people “just assume they’re your best friend.”

“I take my dog to the park all the time, to Central Park,” Lawrence said. “As soon as I meet her in the park, we’re f—ed.”

Sandler agreed that comedians seem more approachable. “When I’m out eating, people do pull up a chair,” he shared.

Though Sandler said he doesn’t shut down interactions, he revealed a new move that has been working when fans his age ask for a picture.

“They go, ‘Hey Adam, could I get a picture?’ And I always say, ‘You don’t want that, man.’ And the guy goes, ‘What?’ And I go, ‘You don’t want that.’ And then he’s like, ‘Yeah, yeah. I don’t,’” Sandler explained.

Sandler points to his age for his willingness to engage with fans. “I sit them down, I feed them, I let them hang out with my kids,” he joked. “My life’s nearing the end. I want to meet as many people as I can.”

The seventh season of Variety’s “Actors on Actors,” presented by Google Home, will air from Jan. 2-4 at 7 p.m. on PBS SoCal KOCE.

Not to diss Jennifer Lawrence, but I would not have any idea who she was. If I saw her, I might go "wow, she's cute" and then go on with my life.

I am also a strong believer of personal space and privacy and would never approach someone famous to bother them. That's rude.

I'm not dissing her either but I've only seen her work in this show.

Default Jennifer Lawrence: The Muse and the Backlash

Jennifer Lawrence is on the receiving end of a lot of backlash these days. Or, at least, that’s what I’ve been hearing for the past four years. Arguably the biggest actress on the planet right now, she’s a bona fide A-Lister with an Oscar to her name and the ability to command a $20m payday. Lawrence is at a level of public visibility that feels both highly modern and old-school: She’s a defining star of our era, one seemingly free of PR polish but still maintaining a well-controlled persona. By and large, she avoids social media and the expected trappings of stardom in the Twitter age. Last year, she received some of the best reviews of her career, but the film itself wildly divided audiences and struggled at the box office. For every person screaming her name from the rooftops, there seems to be a corresponding opposition, questioning her talent, public appearances, and personal life. To talk about her, as I have done before on this site, feels like the inevitable opening of Pandora’s Box: Everyone has an opinion on Jennifer Lawrence and they aren’t shy about sharing them in the strongest possible terms. She isn’t just an actress or star to many people: She’s a sign of the best and worst Hollywood has to offer, in their eyes.

Let’s take stock of Lawrence’s career: After time as a teen actor, she broke into the mainstream with a critically acclaimed performance in the indie drama Winter’s Bone, which landed her the first of several Oscar nominations at the tender age of 20. She soon landed the much-coveted role of Katniss in the YA adaptation The Hunger Games. That series has grossed $2.9 billion worldwide, but before she got there, she played Mystique in the prequel reboots of the X-Men series. Between 2011 and 2016, 7 of her 18 film credits were from these two franchises. 3 of them were collaborations with David O. Russell, each of which landed her another Oscar nomination (and win for Silver Linings Playbook). The rest is filled with appearances in documentaries, a couple of indie roles that precede her blockbuster turns, two schlocky horror movies, and a long-delayed drama she made with Bradley Cooper.

For such a major star, her filmography was oddly limited. This is also just a symptom of the post-Iron Man age. Many similar big stars like Chris Evans have major credits like Lawrence’s that swallow up years of their career. These are no longer one-off commitments, or even stories that end in neatly packaged trilogies like we came to expect. You seldom sign on for a single movie. This is often a good investment for one’s career - a solid and regular pay-cheque plus an increased presence in the public sphere and the excitement that comes with being part of a beloved franchise. For a 20-year-old actress who’s on the up and has audiences and critics intrigued after a star turn in a celebrated indie, both projects sound like a good idea. You can practically hear the agent telling her about the long-term security and boost they’ll bring.
