About a month ago I wrote a post about the actresses, including Jennifer Lawrence, who had their private nude photos hacked and exposed to the world. The gist of the post was that if you don’t do something that would embarrass you, it can’t come back to embarrass you.
This week, J.Law, as she is called, broke her silence about those photos. Basically, she said that she took the photos for her boyfriend because they were in a long distance relationship and, as everyone knows, your boyfriend is either going to look at porn or he’s going to look at you. If a male celebrity made such a sexist statement toward women, he’d be held up to public ridicule, but because this statement was directed toward men, all we hear is crickets.
This, of course, is irritating to all non-porn-watching males, but even that is not the point of this post.
In the newest issue of Vanity Fair, J.Law is at it again. She talks about what she wants in a boyfriend. Basically, two things: someone who will pass gas in front of her and someone who will watch TV with her. No, I’m serious. You can see the report here: http://www.cambio.com/2014/10/08/jennifer-lawrence-wants-a-boyfriend-who-will-fart-in-front-of-her/
First, let me say that millions of guys who thought they were out of the running for J.Law are turning backflips because they now realize they are back in the game. All those couch potatoes with irritable bowels suddenly have hope. Who knew that a beautiful Hollywood starlet would list a gas passing TV watcher as her go-to guy?
Second, I suspect J.Law will end up with exactly the kind of guy she wants. It’s pretty easy to hit what you’re aiming at when you aim so low.
I have nothing against J.Law. She might be a nice person, I don’t know. And I’d like to think that, if pressed, she’d admit that she really is looking for more in a boyfriend. However, her words are going to be read and heard by a lot of young girls who idolize her. I wish she would have talked about the importance of finding a person of character and integrity.
Several years ago I wrote a book for women called, So Much More Than Sexy. The message of that book was, basically, aim high…don’t settle…be more than culture pressures you to be. J.Law reminds me that the message is still needed.
