Confession time. I have a fan girl crush on someone half my age. Nothing for hubby to worry and it’s totally platonic, if slightly bizarre. So who is it? Jennifer Lawrence, aka Katniss Everdeen. If I could be reincarnated as anybody in the world it would probably be her, and here’s why:
She said this:
“If I don’t have anything to do all day, I might not even put my pants on.”
How could a writer not love that?
She also said this:
Gotta love a girl who has no problem admitting her love for french fries. I also like that she laughed off criticism that she was “too fat” to star in The Hunger Games, and went on to criticize Hollywood’s obsession with super-thin girls and women.
She looks great–healthy instead of painfully thin.
And even though she rocks an evening gown, she can still do this–just like a normal person!
It’s apparent she doesn’t take the glamorous life too seriously, as is evidenced by this comment:
She’s even capable of demonstrating archery in a designer dress, which is something I think we can all aspire to.
Finally, she can make a fashion faux pas just like the rest of us and not really give a hoot – obviously, because this outfit is crazy.
From all accounts Jennifer is funny, smart, and pretty darn unpretentious. She’s also a really good actress. In fact, I wish she could star in a movie version of my third book, My Favorite Countess, because she exemplifies (in my mind, anyway) the heroine of that book. But while I’m waiting for her to fit that project into her schedule, I’ll just have to make do with the next installment in The Hunger Games.
Do you have any secret crushes, Hollywood or otherwise? Let me know, and one person who comments will win a copy of My Favorite Countess.
And, seriously, doesn’t Jennifer kind of look like my heroine?!
