Silver Linings Playbook star and the developed world’s main squeeze Jennifer Lawrence is gobbling up all the covers this month. Yesterday, she showed up in her underwear on the cover of Marie Claire South Africa, today she’s landed the cover of Vanity Fair‘s January issue.
…That’s it, up there, in case anything was opaque. Feel free to take a big eyeroll at that “One million men agree!” bit.
Though the accompanying interview is guilty of the usual breathless celebrity worship–she “reads Anna Karenina on her days off,” guys! Can you believe that?–at the same time, we kind of get it. Because Jennifer Lawrence is awesome.
Also, she almost killed somebody with a bow and arrow! We’ll let her tell the story because she’s really charming:
“One time I actually used it for defense. I pulled into my garage and I heard men in my house. And I was like, ‘I’m not letting them take my stuff. I had just gotten back from training, so I had the bow and arrows in the back of my car. I went to my car and I put this quiver on me and I had my bow and I loaded it and I’m walking up the stairs. And I look, and my patio doors were open, and there were guys working right there, and I was like, ‘Heyyy, how you doin’?'” Lawrence’s friends were disappointed by the anticlimactic outcome of the event, the actress tells Windolf: “They were like, ‘We’ve got to stage someone to break into your house and you can kill them!’ That would be the funniest news ever. Katniss Everdeen actually kills someone with a bow and arrow!”
That would probably not be the funniest news ever–what with someone getting killed by bow and arrow–but Jennifer Lawrence could probably come out and explain the situation on Letterman in a self-deprecating way that would totally make us all forgive her for killing that non-famous person. Then there will be a series of adorable gifs on the internet the next day!
Here’s one more shot of Lawrence being hot:
