Utterly ridiculous: Jennifer Lawrence blasts media over dress controversy

Jennifer Lawrence has responded to the controversy over the revealing dress she wore to a winter photo call

The Red Sparrow star tells Bill Whitaker she "never felt very smart".

Speaking to Yahoo Movies UK, he reflected: "I did see [the Twitter backlash], it was pretty amusing but look, I don't know if it's double standards". Now, at only 27 years old, she is already an Oscar victor and one of the most renowned actresses of the current generation. "And if I want to be cold THATS MY CHOICE TOO!"

At 14, Lawrence was spotted by talent scouts who convinced her parents to audition for roles in L.A. That necessitated dropping out of her Louisville, Kentucky school and get home-schooled.

"She said, "Yeah, I mean, not looking at a script, it sounds like a fun idea to do" so we thought of her, had her in mind as we worked on the screenplay".

Talk about determination. The actress added, "Even friends, for many years, were not as important to me as my career".
