This should be easy? Just think of something else. I’ll go first. Okay. Being a famous actor. Often the hours are long, you often have to stay in a hotel somewhere away from your family, the pay is extraordinary but can come with the sacrifice of privacy, someone does your hair and makeup every day which actually isn’t that great because you have sensitive skin, people bring you coffee and juice if you want it and you do want it because last night’s shoot didn’t wrap up until this morning and you only got a few hours of sleep and you might be coming down with something, you have to do press junkets — ugggghh, ummm. Ahhhh. I don’t know. Slavery? UGGGHHHH, THIS IS HARD! From the NY Daily News:

About this time last year, Jennifer Lawrence was suffering from pneumonia and fearful she wouldn’t make it through awards season. Now, her “American Hustle” director David O. Russell, worries the 23-year-old star he directed to a “Silver Linings Playbook” Oscar, is close to pushing herself over the edge again. He blames “The Hunger Games” franchise.

“I personally think they should give her a bit of breathing room over there because they’re printing money,” Russell exclusively told Confidenti@l at Friday’s Australian Academy’s AACTA Awards held in Los Angeles. “But she’s a very alive person.”

“I’ll tell you what it is about that girl — talk about 12 years of slavery, that’s what the franchise is. And I’m going to get in so much trouble for saying that.”

Haha. Uh. The most upsetting part of this quote is that he is talking about a franchise focused on a young woman who is forced by the money and power-hungry people in charge of her to put on a happy face while going through great physical and mental turmoil — he literally could have just used The Hunger Games. Though, I guess the saddest part of 12 Years A Slave WAS when the slaves were sick and maybe couldn’t make it through award season, so. Oh brother. I guess Tom Cruise was found to be somewhat innocent of his comparison crimes, but David O. Russell, YOU COME ON.

  1. David O’Russell being a clueless garbage person is no surprise. He basically admitted to molesting his transgender niece because she was acting “provocatively.”

  2. You know, that’s how people describe me…”A very alive person.” Yup. Tells you all you need to know right there.

  3. Why do any famous people talk ever.

  4. I found out yesterday that the pizza place by my office no longer has their 2-slices-and-a-soda-for-$5 special, so I can really identify with rape survivors.

  5. Your movie would have been good if Steven Soderbergh made it.

  6. This guy sucks

  7. Stupid man, only the FED can print money. If he’s a millionaire he can probably get a loan from the government he won’t need to pay back though.

  8. There are kids working in coal mines, but JLA is the real slave.
