Lots of people here on Tumblr want to see JLaw work with Emma Stone, Anna Kendrick, or Rebel Wilson, heck, maybe all of them in the same movie. While that sounds awesome already as is, I personally wanna see Jen and Ellen Page cross paths. Not even work together hahaha, just meet and hang out, y’know, dialogue and shoot the shit. There’s a lot of similarities between the two if you think about it, like, they’re basically in the same age bracket and they’re both awkwardly hilarious. But in particular, their careers in that they’re extremely talented actresses. Both started in the indies, both play really dark and challenging roles (Hard Candy for Ellen and The Poker House for Jen), both have done big Hollywood movies (Inception for Ellen, Hunger Games for Jen), both have been X-men at some point (Ellen was Kitty Pryde in Last Stand and Jen was Mystique in First Class), both have hosted SNL, both want to direct at some point (it was just announced that Ellen was going to direct her first film, and Jen’s openly talked about expressing her desire to direct one day), and finally, both have been Oscar-nominated for best actress (Ellen once for Juno and Jen twice for Winter’s Bone and now Silver Linings Playbook). Guise, if they meet, that would be like, dividing by zero.
I didn’t watch that clip of Jen getting papped while she was on the phone and I don’t intend to, but when you’re going through this tag, it’s like the elephant in the room that you can’t ignore. First it was pics of her being visibly upset about something. Then gifsets with some subtitles. I don’t want to speculate on what it all means because honestly, it’s none of my fucking business. What is pissing me off is that I’m watching somebody, “celebrity” or civilian, get absolutely thrown into the lions den. What pisses me off is that the thumbnail on that video is “WE’VE GOT YOU”. Got what? Should we be excited that you caught, from the looks of it, a 22-year old woman in the middle of a personal crisis? There’s two ways you can dehumanize somebody; you either dismiss them, or you idolize them, and frankly, both of those things happen to Jen on a constant basis, be it her detractors and some of her fans.
I know this happens all of the time in Hollywood, but it really sucks when I see it happen to Jen. And I don’t even personally know her for cripes sake. Some of you are probably already rolling your eyes and thinking, well, she signed up for this. No. No she didn’t. She signed up to be an actress. She didn’t sign up to be hounded and stalked and prodded. Nobody in their right mind would sign up for that. So stop dismissing her. You may have already put her higher above you in your head for whatever reason; because of “fame”? The fact that her profession and what she wanted to do happens to deal with Hollywood? The fact that she has ”lots of money”? No. It’s unfortunate that the by-product, fame, is overwhelming her desired occupation, acting. It sucks when people overlook or forget that. It sucks when you have a dream to do something, you do it, and then people completely misinterpret what it is you do and then tear you apart for it. Nobody wakes up and says they want to only be famous. And if you do, you’re arrogant.
What pisses me off is that I’m watching somebody who, for all intents and purposes, is like me, a kid around my age, a kid from my generation, get exploited by older people, the older generations. And then these old people, who are out of touch with OUR world, judge us and give us shit for it. Whether or not you want to believe it or accept it, you strip away her acting career, what do you have? Just a normal person. She’s just an ordinary girl who happens to be doing extraordinary things, and obviously post-Hunger Games, has extraordinary things happening to her. But take away all the “extra”, and you’re left with just ordinary. Stop making her out to be something that she’s not, that she doesn’t even make herself out be.
There are some of us, some of them fans, and a lot of them in the Team Katniss coaliton, who are going to yell in Jen’s face, and stick useless crap like movie posters, and DVD cases, and sharpies in her face and demand that she sign them, demand for that photo-op, then half-sincerely thank her for it, then brag about it on whatever social media outlet they prefer. And then there’s some of us, who’ve kind of been following her career and watching her grow ever since The Bill Engvall Show, who are just going to wave at her, maybe nod and salute her if we happen to catch her jogging or something. How about a simple hello? Maybe not even say anything and just smile. Maybe take a second to just appreciate her hard work, and that’s it, nothing more nothing less. Which one are you?
Her life isn’t going to revert back to normal anytime soon, probably ever, so don’t make it worse. She’s probably already had to consciously make the decision a long time ago to start distancing herself from civilians, people like us here on Tumblr, not because she wants to, but because she just needs to. It sounds like a hopeless battle trying to maintain what little privacy, if any, she has left. And who can blame her honestly? Everybody wants shit from her: pictures, autographs, her weight, her number, her address, who is she dating, how much money is she making, who is she dating, they want to do interviews with her, they want her to come in and model off these designer brands like she’s a walking billboard, they want to look at her, touch her, kiss her, fantasize about her, hook up with her, ask her hand in marriage, and then some of y’all just want to get into her pants. The world becomes closed-off and much smaller when nobody wants anything to do with you other than what you can do for them. Shit is lonely.
If you really respect her, if you’re really appreciate what she does, then don’t make her world even lonelier than it already is.
Is it any wonder, I reject you first?
