Jennifer Lawrence is Finally a Jackass

Don't get us wrong -- Jennifer Lawrence is absolutely beautiful and thoughtful and wonderful, and one of our most favorite celebrities in all of Hollywood, but even the most beautiful, thoughtful, wonderful folks sometimes misspeak.

That being said, when we say "Jennifer Lawrence is finally a jackass," it's based solely on what she recently -- and thoughtlessly -- said about Christian Bale and his heavier physique while filming "American Hustle," a movie wherein he gained around 40 pounds to play the role of Jennifer's husband: 

"I finally get to make out with Christian Bale and he's a really fat guy. ... He's Fatman, not Batman." 
 
While the sentiments are, indeed, true in a manner of speaking -- Bale was definitely pretty fit when he played Batman, and kind of flabby when he played the role in "American Hustle" -- it's still pretty rude.

Yeah, Christian gained the weight for a movie, but let's play the Devil's Advocate game here and think about what the fallout would be like if it was Jennifer who had to pork up for the role, and it was Christian -- a man --  who said that it was pretty disappointing to make out with a plump Jennifer Lawrence instead. Would it be OK then if Christian said, "Man, I get to suck face with Jennifer Lawrence and, darn my luck, she's a fatty."

Seriously, who even says that? Jennifer's been a champion against super skinny Hollywood for some time now, and though what she said doesn't make her a bad person, clearly, maybe a little thought before the mouth opens and the foot automatically heads toward the orifice should be happening a little bit more.

You need better editor/writers. This is a very popular name that The Joker calls Batman on comics "Batman...Fatman" I thought it was absolutely adorable!

she is indeed gorgeous despite what the haters are going to say. having said that, how do you know they don't have that sort of joking relationship? do you know them personally? maybe they'd kid about it on set. after all the drastic weight changes he's gone through for so many different roles, how do you know it's not an inside joke between the 2 of them? stop reporting on things you know nothing about only to start sh*t with people you know nothing about.

It is beyond obvious that she was jesting. What is appalling, is that you are a paid journalist.

Is this website a joke? If not, the journalism taking place here is at the caliber of an 8 year old.

Please do your research before insulting. "Batman...Fatman" Is a very name that The Joker calls Batman on comics. It was absolutely adorable that she said that. You need better editors/writers

I just love how the media always picks a quote that they feel will cause controversy or smear a person. It happens countless of times where celebrities or just regular people have inside jokes or use puns off of a series that outsiders don't get and are "offended" for the other person. Well, I've seen more than enough writers from blogs and websites about celebrities having a lot of "jackass" or cringe worthy commenting moments depending on their feelings for a celebrity. It's all about context and how the parties involved react, not outsiders trying to start drama.

This has got to be the most moronic article I've ever read. Is Sarah Taylor 8 years old or does she just have an IQ of 8? To insinuate Jennifer Lawrence is trying to fat shame Christian Bale for gaining over 40lbs to PLAY A FAT GUY IN A MOVIE is totally beyond idiotic.

Um, people must have selective memory because she said the same thing about Val Kilmer awhile back and no one gave her grief. For someone who wants to make the word "fat" illegal among the media, she sure is quick to say it.

FYI, Christian Bale has called himself like that in interviews for American Hustle and he said that it was an inside joke among the cast and crew.

Clearly she was joking around with a good friend. Try using your brain.

You are the worse! I sometimes will read your blog just to see how ridiculous or wrong you are. 95% of the time you have your facts wrong or your opinion is based on ridiculous terms. Obviously she was joking. Why does TMZ have you on their page. I think it's team for a petition to remove you!!!
