Is this another case of pointy elbows?

Jennifer Lawrence, the star of the forthcoming The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2, might be thought to have it all: good looks, a glittering Hollywood career, fame and fortune.
But in an interview with Vogue magazine the star has revealed that despite her A-list status, she struggles romantically.

“No one ever asks me out. I am lonely every Saturday night. Guys are so mean to me,” Lawrence, 25, said.

Must be, pointy elbows, right? Nowt else wrong with her, obviously:

“I know where it’s coming from, I know they’re trying to establish dominance, but it hurts my feelings. I’m just a girl who wants you to be nice to me. I am straight as an arrow.”

“It’s strangely exhilarating because you keep trying to fight for that validation. You want to have [validation] before you get married, so that you don’t seek it out once you are,” she explained to the mag.

Ah, no, not pointy elbow syndrome. She’s deluded instead.

Young men are not trying to establish dominance by not asking you out. Young men are, by and large, looking for a bit of a laugh and the possible sniff of a legover. Dominance and mind games doesn’t really come into it.

Seriously, the faster young women like this understand quite how simple men and their desires are are the happier they’ll be.

  1. Oh no. Chateau Heartiste has been banging on about this for years. She will be putting out, but only to uber-asshole alpha males who move in her circles and nail half the Hollywood starlets before they’re even famous. And she will also be approached by the nice, friendly beta males who she claims she wants but don’t excite her (assuming she gives them the time of day, or even comes into contact with them). But what she wants is that uber-thug alpha who has just rogered her six times last Sunday morning before wiping his knob on her curtains and leaving without saying goodbye to turn into a nice guy who answers her text messages. And that just ain’t gonna happen.

  2. She also sounds like she’s nuts:

    “I feel like if I find that one person who I want to spend the rest of my life with, who I want to be the father of my children, that I would absolutely not f–k it up.”

    Yeah, right.

  3. Tim, I’m something of a ladies man – I know they can’t resist the caddish charms of a man (in an immaculately creased teal leisure suit) plying them with Babycham – so let me field this one.

    Young Miss Lawrence’s problem is not her elbows, but her hair. She used to have luscious long flowing locks, like a waterfall of cornsilk.

    Then she got it cut short, and – surprise! – is finding out that Mum hair was invented to repel men.

    I’m not saying I wouldn’t make sweet, sweet sex to Jennifer Lawrence. I would. But I’d make her wear a hat.

  4. ““No one ever asks me out,” she tells the latest issue of US Vogue. “I am lonely every Saturday night. Guys are so mean to me. I know where it’s coming from, I know they’re trying to establish dominance, but it hurts my feelings.”

    I don’t know whether she means guys are mean because they don’t ask her out, or whether she means that guys that she has been out with previously have been mean to her in their relationship. (Although she’s been out with Chris Martin, and he seems pretty wimpy).

    Anyway, she doesn’t seem to understand what has happened. Women spend their whole lives after puberty defining their status in a subtle but public way, so that only those men who are (i) their social equals (or superiors), and (ii) as good-looking as they are, feel brave enough to ask them out. Lawrence has been so successful in becoming a celebrity actor, and is so good-looking, that there are hardly any men left who are in this category.

    (Even Hollywood sleazeballs, it seems, have been too intimidated to try it on. Though I expect they will now.)

  5. “No one ever asks me out. I am lonely every Saturday night.”

    Translation:

    “No-one who gets me wet between the legs ever asks me out. I am lonely every Saturday night”

    Its the female unstated constant, the necessity for panty dampness, AKA the FUC. Whatever statement they make about their romantic desires you need to add in the FUC at all times.

  6. There’s a conversation between a g/f & the then Miss UK comes to mind. She was telling her much the same as Jennifer Lawrence. Lots of propositions. Some not too savory. Entitlement demands from those who felt entitled to demand, not ask. But they were all addressed to Miss UK. No-one asked HER out.

    If it hadn’t been for… I’d have been tempted. Never know your luck. But how would she have known which I was asking? Come to think of it, how would I?

  7. It’s that fame phenomenon. Somehow you have to be on the same star level or it’s basically just groupie sex. This is fine for most famous boys for far longer than for the girls if it was at all.
