Jennifer Lawrence's Pajama Pants: 11 Deeply Reflective Questions They Bring to Mind

10 hours ago | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Stay warm, Jennifer Lawrence!

The Catching Fire actress, who was sadly absent from awards season, braved a snowy Boston day with a natural look in boots and a cozy looking pair of pajama pants. J-Law is in town filming Joy which reunites the actress with her Silver Linings Playbook team, Bradley Cooper, Robert De Niro, and director David O. Russell.

And it sounds like despite the cold weather, things are pretty heated on the set. TMZ reports that there was a loud argument between Jennifer and Russell this week because she reportedly didn't like the way the Oscar-winning director was directing a scene. A rep for the movie studio Fox 2000 however, reportedly chalked the shouting match up to "method acting."

Virginia Madsen Joins Jennifer Lawrence In David O. Russell’s Joy

18 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Once you’re in with David O. Russell, you’re really in. The Oscar-nominated director’s next film, buzzy biopic Joy, will reunite him with American Hustle and Silver Linings Playbook stars Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro, ensuring another round of Oscar nominations for them all. Luckily, though, it won’t be all familiar faces for Russell: Sideways actress Virginia Madsen has just joined the cast, The Hollywood Reporter confirms.

The film, set for a prime awards season release on Christmas Day this year, will focus on Miracle Mop inventor Joy Mangano (Lawrence), who began inventing at a young age and eventually hit it big with the Mop and Huggable Hampers, in addition to more than 100 other patents. As her empire grew, Mangano also juggled the responsibilities of playing single mom to three children.

Watch: New International Trailer, Clip & Featurette For 'Serena' With Jennifer Lawrence & Bradley Cooper

24 February 2015 3:05 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

“I hit the jackpot being able to work with Jennifer Lawrence twice in a row on ‘Silver Linings Playbook,’ and now on ‘Serena,’” Bradley Cooper says in this new feaurette for Susanne Bier’s drama “Serena." “She is a wonderful, wonderful actress.” While that may be true, “Serena” got hammered with negative reviews back in the fall of last year — which wasn’t a huge surprise given the movie was delayed for almost two years. Bier essentially made two different films while it languished in the editing room. Here’s our review of “Serena” in case you missed it. But you’ve likely heard all that drama already, and it is what it is, but “Serena” is finally almost here for those who remain curious. Here’s the official synopsis:  North Carolina mountains at the end of the 1920s – George (Bradley Cooper) and Serena Pemberton (Jennifer Lawrence), love-struck newly-weds, begin to build a timber empire. »

Where Was Jennifer Lawrence During Oscar Weekend? Hanging Out in Boston!

23 February 2015 7:33 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

After the Oscars came and went, we were left with a number of burning questions. But none were quite as pressing as: Where was Jennifer Lawrence and why wasn't she there to liven up the ceremony?!

As it turns out, she decided that freezing in Boston snow was more fun than attending the Academy Awards.

Video: 2015 Oscars: The Best, Worst, and Weirdest Moments

The star was spotted shopping at a mall, bundled up to the nines, and carrying her tiny dog Pippi. Wearing 10 layers of weather-proof clothing is still more comfortable than squeezing into a tiny, poufy dress.

The Hunger Games star -- who has been nominated for Oscars three times in the last five years, winning once -- has been in Boston working on the upcoming bio-pic Joy, the real-life story of Joy Mangano, a single mom who became a world-famous entrepreneur after inventing the Miracle Mop.

It's all work, no play for the Queen of Pop. Madonna has notoriously thrown one of the most anticipated parties of awards season, but her schedule will keep the singer from attending her own post-Oscars bash this year.

11 Actors Who Had an Oscar-Nominated Movie & a Total Bomb Come Out at the Same Time

20 February 2015 8:32 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Not every movie can be a winner. And not every actor can be Meryl Streep.

Even Oscar nominees make bad movies and sometimes, in an unfortunate twist of fate and bad timing, that bomb, that dud, that total and complete flop, comes out at the same time as some of the best work of their life. Here are 11 times that happened in the past 10 years:

Focus Features

1. Eddie Redmayne (2015)

Nominated Role: The Theory of Everything. Redmayne is the Best Actor favorite this year for this biopic about Stephen Hawking navigating black holes and Als.

Losing Role: Jupiter Ascending. This totally effing bonkers Wachowski sci-fi flick came out just before Oscar voting started. And once you see Redmayne as Bowie-esque space prince Balem Abrasax, it cannot be unseen.

The Weinstein Company

2. Jennifer Lawrence (2013)

Winning Role: Silver Linings Playbook. Lawrence took home Best Actress for her turn as a trouble townie named Tiffany in this dark spin on a rom-com »

Serena DVD Review

19 February 2015 5:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Susanne Bier

Starring: Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper, Rhys Ifans, Toby Jones, Sean Harris, Sam Reid, David Dencik

Running Time: 109 minutes

Certificate: 15

After being pleasantly surprised by the partnership of Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper for David O. Russell’s Silver Linings Playbook, one of my highlights of 2012, I had an open mind when it came to reviewing Susanne Bier’s Serena. However, while Lawrence and Cooper made sweet, ballroom magic in the former, not much can be said for the latter.

Set in Depression-era North Carolina, Cooper features as wealthy timber businessman George Pemberton, a local Lothario keen to produce a son to carry on his empire. Enter Serena Shaw (Lawrence), glamorous horse-rider and orphan, due to a fire engulfing her family home. The pair bond over their love of the great outdoors and soon get married, much to the disapproval of Pemberton’s employees. However, while the couple try many times to conceive, »

The Rom-Com Is Dead: 11 Offensive Cliches we'll be glad to see expire

13 February 2015 1:23 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Happy Valentine's Day, single people! Isn't it depressing? And we all have the demented romantic comedy genre to thank for our feeling of unfulfillment (along with, you know, assorted other factors). But good news! The traditional rom-com has been dying a protracted death for the last five or six years. Sure, the genre still exists. An argument could be made that the genre lives on in its purest form with the recent spate of rom-coms starring African-American actors ("Think Like a Man," "About Last Night," etc.) Recent films like Jenny Slate's "Obvious Child," Lake Bell's "In A World...," Joseph Gordon-Levitt's "Don Jon," "Silver Linings Playbook" and even the zom-com flick "Warm Bodies" could also certainly be categorized as such -- and yet what they all have in common is their failure to follow the once tried-and-true template of their star-driven predecessors. The conventional, old-fashioned studio romantic comedy, »
