Linkage: Jennifer Lawrence Thinks Acting Is Stupid, Brangelina Might Have Married

Silver Linings Playbook star Jennifer Lawrence is looking great on the cover of this month’s Vanity Fair, and she’s taking a cue from her character’s outspokenness. "Not to sound rude, but [acting] is stupid… Everybody’s like, ‘How can you remain with a level head?’ And I’m like, ‘Why would I ever get cocky? I’m not saving anybody’s life. There are doctors who save lives and firemen who run into burning buildings. I’m making movies. It’s stupid.’” (Good luck on that second Oscar nomination, Jen!) [Vanity Fair]

The people who are going to get attention are the wacky guys… who eventually become stars… You’ll never see a black Will Ferrell, You’ll never see a black Adam Sandler, because black people aren’t allowed to play those kind of roles."
