Jennifer Lawrence is known for her migraine headaches, which are often caused by eating spicy food, along with a few hunger Games movies But her recent comments about female-led action franchises may have been the dumbest thing she’s done yet, which is saying a lot.

hunger Games The actress had taken a short break from acting over the past few years to save Democracy but Lawrence is back with a vengeance with some statements that have movie fans running up a wall.
Lawrence recently interviewed Viola Davis, co-star The King’s Womana film that starkly whitewashes the real-life history of the Kingdom of Dahomey in West Africa, one of the most prominent slave-trading states of their time and attempts to make them anti-colonial heroes who fought against enslavement and oppression.
According to History vs. Hollywood, Dahomey warriors staged slave raids on villages detailing, “They beheaded old people and ripped the lower jaw bones from others.
“During raids, they would burn villages to the ground. Those who left them alive, including children, were captured and sold into slavery,” the outlet adds.
But according to Jennifer Lawrence, because of the representation of black women, The King’s Woman It is the best movie of 2022.
“I think The Woman King is the best movie I’ve seen this year, and it’s the best movie I’ve seen in a long time,” Lawrence stated.

But this comment wasn’t the stupidest thing Lawrence said in the interview. during the discussion The King’s Woman And the hunger Games Franchise, Lawrence made a blatantly false claim that Hollywood put a woman in the lead in an action movie prior to 2012.
This is not a bit.
Lawrence, who earlier this year claimed she was a victim of sexism because she was paid $5 million less ($25 million) than Leonardo Dessepio for the Netflix movie, do not search She told Davis, “Nobody ever puts a woman at the lead in an action movie because it wouldn’t work. We’re told that girls and boys can identify with a male lead, but boys can’t identify with a heroine.”
She continued, “And it makes me so happy every time I see a movie that breaks out of every one of those beliefs, and proves that it’s just a lie to keep some people out of cinema. To keep some people in the same situations they’ve always been in. It’s amazing to watch that happen.” And to watch you over your head.”
from where we start?
The claim that Hollywood did not have action films with female heroines before Katniss Evendeen is absolutely absurd, only someone who knows nothing about film history will pretend that it is true. When Lawrence’s comments hit Film Twitter, I was bombarded with responses from people who referenced decades of groundbreaking female action films.
Twitter user Stephen Simmons brutally debunked Lawrence’s idea in a series of tweets dubbed feminist movies.
He wrote, “Alien, Aliens, Terminator 1 & 2, Long Kiss Good Night, Resident Evil (5 by that), La Femme Nikita, Kill Bill vol 1 & 2, Underworld franchise (4 by then), Charlies Angels 1 & 2, Tomb Raider 1 & 2, V for Vendetta, G.I. Jane, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Cutthroat Island, Salt.”
It didn’t stop there. He continued: “Columbiana, Haywire, Hanna, Wanted, Run Lola Ran, The Fifth Element, Serenity, Brave, Alien 3, Alien Resurrection, Alien vs. Predator, Alien vs. Predator 2, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Lineage, Point No. Return, Aeon Flux, Bad Girls, Foxy Brown, Death Proof, Sucker Punch, Elektra, Coffy, River Wild.”
However, he went on to say, “Ultraviolet, Planet Terror, Prometheus, Bloodrain, Valiant, Snow White and the Huntsman, Lady Snowblood, Pandidas, Momentum, Catwoman, Panic, Mortal Kombat.”
He then noted, “All of these movies you’ve listed are before Hunger Games and star women…”

TheCinemaSoothsayer also debunked Lawrence’s account with a list of actresses famous for their roles in action franchises.
A Twitter user wrote, “Sigourney Weaver, Jane Fonda, Geena Davis, Angelina Jolie, Milla Jovovich, Kate Beckinsale, Charlize Theron.”
The user added, “I swear they don’t even know their own business history, they just say things.”
Codenomics ACTL tweeted, “Nobody ever puts a woman at the front of an action movie,” Tell me more about how you didn’t see a movie made before you became an actor! I mean.. seriously?! Pam Greer? Sigourney Weaver? Carrie Fisher? Jamie Lee Curtis? Linda Hamilton? Shall I continue?!
David Levitt tweeted, “Jennifer Lawrence is declared the first female lead ever to lead an action movie…she clearly hasn’t watched Sigourney Weaver’s Alien franchise”

Noam Blum wrote: “People like Jennifer Lawrence can’t be a giant, Oscar-winning star. She should feel like she’s done something no one else has done before, and happily, she’ll invent something like that if that’s the last thing she does.”
Tim Young wondered, “Sooo is Jennifer Lawrence so stupid or just plain ignorant?”
FreedSamurai tweeted a list of characters that includes: Ripley, Sarah Connor, Princess Leia, Wonder Woman, and Furiosa.
The user also shared a clip of two men, one of whom says, “Actors are idiots, people. They’re not smart. Few are smart. And the smart ones are much older. Young actors—and we know a lot of them—are insanely stupid to where they can be seen.”
Then the man asked, “Have you ever been with someone so stupid that it’s noticeable? When you look at another person as if in disbelief at what that person is doing?”

Jennifer’s recent comments are another footnote in the long list of stupid comments she’s made in the past few years. Earlier this year, Lawrence threw her parents under the bus suggesting that they support the Nazis due to their conservative political beliefs.
Karen Valpi of Variety asked her if her parents forgave her for being a liberal. Lawrence replied, “I don’t know. I really don’t.” When asked if she had forgiven her parents, she replied, “Yes. “.
“It was brutal. It’s hard to disagree about things you thought you’d never be… There’s no way we’re going to disagree in 2021. White supremacy. Attacking the Capitol. The Nazis are the bad guys. Or just science. I don’t know,” she said.
In his October 2020 appearance on comedian Heather McMahan’s podcast, Lawrence made the unsubstantiated claim, “When Donald Trump was elected, that changed everything. This is an impeached president who broke so many laws and refused to condemn white supremacists, there seems to have been a line drawn in Sand “.
She added, “I don’t want to support a president who supports white supremacists.”
In 2017, Lawrence claimed in an interview that tornadoes were nature’s angry response to the election of Donald Trump.
“It has been proven by science that human activity, climate change is caused by human activity and we still ignore it and the only voice we really have is through voting and our voice and it was really amazing. You’re watching these tornadoes now and it’s really hard while promoting this movie not to get angry Mother Nature or Her Wrath.
