Is Jennifer Lawrence Next To Go Nude?
Jennifer Lawrence could be the next American actress to shed things off in front of the camera. Her recent steps could be an indicator. Like the just released braless Rolling Stone cover. I think we're dealing with a new generation of American actresses who are more open about nudity, and a public ready to tastefully embrace it.
Recent ones that come to mind are Elizabeth Olsen, in Martha Marcy May Marlene, Carey Mulligan in Shame, Kirsten Dunst in Melancholia, and Michelle Williams in Blue Valentine & My Week With Marilyn.
Here is what those four ladies had to say about it:
"The movie wouldn't have been as disturbing without it," she explains. "Taking away someone's sexuality, making it something you don't even own anymore--that's the scariest thing."
“Sissy is an exhibitionist. She wants to be seen,” said the 26-year-old Mulligan, whose bright, youthful face took on a sudden intensity as she answered. “This was the ultimate introduction to exactly who she is. It introduces you to the dynamic of the relationship by just taking off their clothes.”
—Carey Mulligan, who director Steve McQueen said "She wanted the role quite desperately"
“What we made as a film means more to me than the fact that, you know, I’m on the Internet naked,” Dunst said. “It looks beautiful, it was shot well. It’s a beautiful film. It is not something I feel embarrassed about.”
"Well, the nude scenes were in the later part of the relationship so I had gained some weight and the pudginess I was feeling was almost like a costume, so it didn't really seem as if I were nude but some other person was,". "All that extra flesh ironically made me feel less nude."
Back to Jennifer Lawrence. She obviously is not shy about nudity. In the Rolling Stone article, Zoë Kravitz shares the following story, of when she visited Lawrence at home:
"I'd met her a few times, and she was like, 'You should come over and we'll hang out.' So I go over to her apartment, and she opens the door in a towel. She's like, 'Come in, sorry, you're early, I was about to shower.' And she drops her towel and gets in the shower, and starts shaving her legs, totally naked."
"She was like, 'Are we here yet? Is this OK?' And I was like, 'I guess we're there!'"
So what's next for Lawrence? She's got three more movies coming out this year, and so far one in 2013. You can check them out here. For now here is her upcoming horror flick, House at the End of the Street:
