What Jennifer Lawrence tells Diane Sawyer
We saw the pictures of Jennifer Lawrence in New York with Diane Sawyer in October – click here for a refresher. With the release of Mockingjay 2 just a week away, the interview has now aired. They bond over Kentucky. They hang out around New York at the place where Jennifer was discovered. After that great Vogue interview though, there’s not much here that’s more than that…except for what she says about how she relates the end of The Hunger Games to the end of her relationship with Nicholas Hoult.
“These movies had been my life for so long and they had to come first in everything,” she told Sawyer. “I was also in a relationship with somebody for five years and that was my life. So my life was this person and these movies and we broke up around the same time that I wrapped those movie. Being 24 [years old] was this whole year of ‘Who am I without these movies? Who am I without this man?’ It was always ‘we.’ It sounds so young to say that but it’s true.”
That’s how much Nicholas meant to her. So you know there’s a lot of fondness there. You know she honours what they had. Otherwise, she would not be comparing him to the role that made her one of the most powerful women in Hollywood, that gave her so much of what she has, and will have.
Which means that Nicholas is not who she was talking about when she told Vogue that she’s not dating right now because guys she meets always “try to establish dominance”. Click here for a refresher.
You know anyone with a connection to Jennifer Lawrence who behaves a certain way when the woman he’s with has a bigger profile than he does? Think of how Chris Martin could barely put on a smile when he was ostensibly supporting his then-wife at the launch of her book. Think of how he dated Jennifer for a year and couldn’t stand to be photographed in the same frame. And now he’s with someone who’s nowhere near as famous and they’re doing the two-step all over Paris.
You think he’d be the kind of guy to “try to establish dominance"?
