Jennifer Lawrence and Brie Larson Stood Up for the Same Thing, But Only One of Them Was Trolled.

"Haven't we had enough stories about white women?": Jennifer Lawrence Narrowly Escaped Brie Larson Level Scrutiny With 1 Comment

Jennifer Lawrence has been an A-list Hollywood actor for a long time now. She made her way into the list when she starred as Katniss Everdeen in the dystopian action film series The Hunger Games, adapted from Suzanne Collins’s novel trilogy of the same series.

The Silver Linings Playbook star is known for being as honest as she can, and there was one time when she made a comment that could have potentially landed her in a pickle like Brie Larson did when she said something similar. However, it is surprising that it did not go how some might have expected it to.

Jennifer Lawrence Got Away With This Comment

Although she had previously starred as the shapeshifting mutant Mystique in X-Men: First Class before starring in the first movie of The Hunger Games trilogy, Jennifer Lawrence did not gain worldwide recognition until her role in the latter came along. That being said, for someone as famous as her, it is quite a surprise that she has managed to remain so down to Earth and genuine.

Lawrence has remained unaffected by all the glitz and glam of Hollywood only because she has wanted it to be that way. Although she has made numerous movies over the years, she felt like she had lost control of her professional life. She refuses to let Hollywood run her career instead of doing it herself.

The Mother! actress started a production company named Excellent Cadaver with a friend. This allows her to be the one in charge of overseeing what is going out there on the big screen for the public to consume. She does not mind losing projects if it means she can bring more diversity to her work instead of having stories revolve around White women.

In an interview with Vanity Fair, when she was asked about the kind of movies that Excellent Cadaver was not interested in making, Jennifer Lawrence said:
“Well, that’s hard to answer, because if I answer honestly, I’m out of a job. I mean, haven’t we had enough stories about White women?”
This does not mean that she is not willing to make movies in which a White woman is the protagonist, but she believes that there are a lot of other stories to be told.

Brie Larson Was Trolled for Saying Something Similar

Brie Larson is one of the women in Hollywood who has been very clear in her stance on what she stands for. Besides being an on-screen superhero, she has also stood out as one of the real-life superheroes as she has continually stood up for equality and s*xual assault survivors.

When she brought up the lack of representation in film reviewers while talking to Keah Brown for an interview with Marie Claire, it did not go well with a particular subsect of society, specifically the white men. This was because Larson said that a majority of the reviewers of her movies before she made Captain Marvel were white males.

This enraged the subsect of the society concerned and they started leaving negative reviews of Captain Marvel on Rotten Tomatoes before the movie was even released. It became such a big issue that Rotten Tomatoes had to turn off the comments.
