Jennifer Lawrence - The Hollywood Reporter's 2016 Women in Entertainment Power 100
Actress, 'Passengers'

The Hollywood Reporter’s 2016 Women in Entertainment Power 100 

Lawrence, 26, who has been an outspoken warrior against the gender pay gap, earned a huge $20 million paycheck for her latest film, the sci-fi romancePassengers (out Dec. 21) opposite Chris Pratt, cementing herself as the highest-paid actress working today. “We can ask for the same exact thing that men do, and we do face the reality that we do get judged more,” she has said of the industry double standard. “It’s just something that’s intrinsic. I would love to see change.” The in-demand Hunger Games star, who also is the youngest actress to earn four Oscar nominations (she’s won one), already has filmed Darren Aronofsky’s next movie about a couple whose relationship is tested by uninvited guests. She’s attached to a slew of high-profile projects, including Adam McKay’s Bad Blood, about controversial Theranos founder Elizabeth Holmes; Francis Lawrence’s spy thriller Red Sparrow; and Steven Spielberg’s It’s What I Do, based on the memoir by war photographer Lynsey Addario.

Including the Hunger Games and X-Men franchises, Lawrence’s films have earned north of $5.3 billion worldwide. In 2015, she launched the Jennifer Lawrence Foundation, which supports various charities including the Boys & Girls Clubs of America and the Special Olympics, and, after Donald Trump won the presidential election, she penned a passionate letter (for Vice’s woman-centered Broadly channel) to those disappointed by the results: “Do not let this defeat you — let this enrage you! Let it motivate you! Let this be the fire you didn’t have before.”

Right so I’ve never dared to contribute to Studyblr before now because I’ve been way too intimidated by your absolute perfection. But then I finished embroidering my backpack and spent the excess of a generous paycheck on some new gear. 

This is my kit on an average school day, sans textbooks. 

I’m a rising Senior in high school, living in the midwest, and homeschooled. I attend a local university (IUPUI) for nearly all my classes. I’ve been earning college credit since my Freshman year of high school. I’m currently in the process of applying to Notre Dame and Johns Hopkins (among others). I’m planning on majoring in BME, or getting a Biology/Industrial Design double major. 

Anyway, it’s really nice to meet you guys. I’m extremely impressed by you all, and your handwriting. 

It’s completely inappropriate to the subject matter, but Mr Finnemore’s latest Double Act follows the ‘vacation novel’ naming convention, so I had to make a mock cover for it – naturally, following the cover design convention in which the designer was briefed by the publisher but apparently has not read the book.

Seriously though, it’s an excellent half hour, you should listen to it (just don’t expect any diamonds or black helicopters).

LM can not be compared to 1D whatsoever! One Direction didn't have to work for their achievements because they're naturally talented.

You’re… trying… to say… LM… isn’t… naturally… talented…???

Anyway, I’m not saying One Direction didn’t work for their achievements, bc they did, but they haven’t worked half as hard as LM. And the reason LM has to work so hard isn’t for lack of talent, it’s because of industry double standards. If One Direction didn’t have to work as hard, it’s because they’re a *boy* band, and Little Mix is a *girl* band.

I've read Dylan's letter when it was published (heartbreaking!) but I didn't know her brother had written an article about her story so thank you for the link. I found interesting that Woody Allen was in therapy for "inappropriate conduct with children" before Dylan's allegation. I don't remember any article writing about it. Sadly, it really show the double standard in the industry: his wife is always portrait as an angry ex-gilfriend and important fact like this are conveniently forgotten.

Yup. The media largely portrayed Mia Farrow as just being bitter that Woody Allen left her for a “younger woman” (her own teenage step-daughter).

After the open letter was published Vanity Fair did a great followup 10 Undeniable Facts About the Woody Allen Sexual-Abuse Allegation, including that Woody Allen had already been in therapy for inappropriate conduct with children.

Coupling the letters from Ronan and Dylan with those facts makes it that much more outrageous to me that A-listers continue working with him.
