On the fact that Jennifer Lawrence is a body image advocate:

“I love that she’s telling everyone how wrong it is to worry about retouching and body image, and meanwhile, she has been touched up more than a choir boy at the Vatican. Look at her posters. She doesn’t have a nose, she has two holes. She just has to learn, don’t talk if you’re doing it.”

… says 80 year-old Joan.

    Joan is right once again. Love that woman, isn’t affraid to say anything. 🙂

    • C

      Thank you, I was surprised to see this comment since most women here are so fake and full of it.

      • Jenna

        Right? I was surprised too but Joan is totally right.

    • cloud9

      Love them both so much, cannot side….alter boy at the Vatican…bhahahahahh

      • AlyssaMoh

        ha ha ha child abuse! ha ha ha….

  • I don’t like Joan Rivers at all – I think she’s a mean-spirited, narcissist who fuels our basest desires to ridicule how other people look to feel superior. She may be unashamed of her upfront nastiness, but that doesn’t make her admirable.

    Jennifer is just one of many celebs to complain about photoshopping and body-shaming and still be photoshopped in magazines, etc. They don’t have complete creative control over their shoots, as far as I know, and seeing as photoshop is totally standard for every magazine, I doubt Jennifer has the power to tell them what not to do. If she does, she should use it and so should every other celeb out there.
    And Joan Rivers should stop making (unfunny) jokes at the expense of others or just to get a rise out of people – it’s really not that amusing or original.

    • Rachel

      She can have as much control as she wants, I’d imagine. “Oh, you want me to be on the cover of your magazine? Sure, but only if you don’t do any retouching”. If they don’t agree to her terms, then she could simply not be on/in their magazine. I don’t like Joan Rivers, but Joan Rivers is not wrong in this case. Jennifer Lawrence is having her cake and eating it too.

      Frankly, Lawrence is wearing on my last nerve. Since she became uber famous, I feel like she’s just been yelling, “LOOK AT ME! I’M SO DIFFERENT AND AWESOME! RELATE TO ME!!!”
      Now, Shailene Woodly, who is annoyingly granola, at least attempts to make a stand (or so it appears) by going to some events legit fresh-faced. Lawrence, on the other hand, has one of the best prep teams out there. She goes from looking quite regular and plain to completely fabulous and – magically – three sizes smaller. It’s nothing short of a miracle.

        I occasionally watch Joan…she mocks peoples style and plastic surgery…I can’t recall her making fun of someone for their physique or features…im ok with this type of humour…esp bc she makes fun of herself all the time
        Jennifer I have a prob with; I find her arrogant and self centered the way she behaves on Letterman is disgusting, bratty even and I think she’s a hypocrite…on every other cover and always talking about weight and liberation from the confines of othrs’ opinions when she is photoshopped every single cover and to me it’s just a bunch of garbage… she has lost weight since she came on the scene, nope she’s not a lollipop but she has lost weight
        (Disliking her new stylists choices from her hair to clothes…doesn’t suit Jennifer…its really obvious shes trying to b something shes not, to me)

      • Juju

        I doubt there is even a single magazine out there who doesn’t retouch its cover….Cosmo, Vogue, VF, MC etc even the more “serious” mags do it.
        I don’t think it’s possible nowadays to be a well-known female celebrity and to not be retouched at all. Even if she stopped doing covers and eds, her marketing team would still photoshop her on her movie posters and I think even JLaw isn’t powerful enough to make all that marketing sh*t go on their knees. They can always find another relatable and cute actress and make her the next JLaw, dozen of thousand actresses would beg for it, but she on the other end, needs them (the movie compagnies).

    • Anon

      You’re calling someone else men spirited? Because she makes fun of millionaire Nicole kidmans 3000 dollar Oscar dress? Oh boo hoo, she’s just not passive aggressive fake like you. God, you are either from the u.k or the u.s with your p.c b.s. Joan’s hilarious, and actually she is original. She was the first woman to make it big in comedy. Get a sense of humor Erica, Jesus.

    • Hannah

      Thank you Erica!
      That was actually the first thing that came to my mind! So Jennifer Lawrence is now doing her own retouching?! She is actually responsible for all her photoshoots and has complete control over every picture, she’s THAT powerful people. I think what she is doing is great enough, she is sending a POWERFUL MESSAGE out there that you don’t have to starve or kill yourself at the gym to look “hot”. She’s giving a big middlefinger to all the sickly looking hollywood starlets who apparently all eat the same s*** everyday and do the same boring yoga-type of workouts.

      I applaud her for standing up for herself. For NOT letting herself to be pushed around by scum agents when she was younger. For actually TELLING the press what’s really on her mind and not the typical boring hollywood answers. She comes across a REAL and GROUNDED. And Joan Rivers (who is this old hag anyway?!) should be ASHAMED of herself. Looks like an ad AGAINST plastic surgery if you ask me!

      “I don’t like Joan Rivers at all – I think she’s a mean-spirited, narcissist who fuels our basest desires to ridicule how other people look to feel superior. She may be unashamed of her upfront nastiness”

      Oh the irony!!. “mean spirited” “nasty” “superior” “narcissist” all things you would know plenty about. The only reason you are annoyed is because she said it about one of your fave celebs. Had she said the same thing about Gwenth Paltrow or Victoria Beckham or some VS model you would have been praising her to the high heavens and you know it. That is the truth no matter how many people from your gang/clique on here try to defend you.

      • anonymous

        Of course I also know about mean spirited & nasty. Just look at my comments.

  • she looks to have a within the bound of normal noses to me

  • Alex

    Yea, yea I usually agree with the whole “Joan river’s a ___ with a ___ talking ___” but I have to be honest my first response to this was “haha that’s funny and true”. And sure she’s a newly established actress bla bla she doesn’t have so much control but if she wants to make these ‘inspirational’ quotes she shouldn’t have let Dior literally slim her down 25 lbs.

  • REALNO

    Joan Rivers – a failed experiment of a huge number of unsuccessful surgeries. A freak full of complexes, so she wants to make it up by always criticising someone, but she should first take a look at herself and then say something to someone. Does she have a mirror?? No one should pay attention to what she has to say. She’s so irrelevant. Period.

    • Victoria

      I don’t like her attitude, actually, I don’t like when anyone says nasty things about other people…I like even less when they do it for a living… But she is right on this one and I don’t think she was mean or said anything bad about Jennifer, she just talked about her attitude, so I guess it wasn’t that bad. But… Why did you have to say these mean things about Joan? According to you, she does it to feel better about herself, so do you? I’m not saying this to be mean or anything, but you kinda did the same thing she does. Just because she does it, it doesn’t mean it’s right to do it to her 🙂

      • welcome to the internet, where everyone tries to out-nasty each other :/

    • Victoria

    • Hehe exactly my thought!! it might be even a little true yes, but it sounds kinda hypocrite coming out her mouth ….

  • Debbs

    For once I agree with Joan.

  • Grazibel

    HA this happens to be true. I’m always interested to see the extent to which celebs are photoshopped in magazines and have noticed she has always been one of the worst- the first time I saw her do a mag cover, I remember thinking “she’s actually pretty thin, what is she talking about?” And then seeing candids, where she looks totally different. She and Kim k. Are the worst for Photoshop IMO. She could totally tell magazines not to photoshop her is much if she wanted to. Just saying all this body image stuff for publicity. Probs in reality insecure as f*ck. I’m glad someone finally said it! even if it’s Joan.

  • serena

    JLaw has complained more than once that her movie posters are photoshopped beyond recognition. She is an actress, not the one running the photography/marketing campaign behind the scenes for her films. Whoever said “She’s an actress she can ask them not to retouch” must be joking. These movie producers and magazines want everything to look perfect or no one will buy the image they’re selling. Also she often appears in public with little to no makeup.

    As for Joan, she has had so much plastic surgery that she looks like an alien with or without photoshop. I’m not a fan of Jen’s haircut, it is too matronly for her image.

  • gar

    The “choir boy at the Vatican” cracked me up:)…

  • Lisa

    Blah de blah blah. Joan Rivers has opened her mouth again, and the sun rose this morning. I used to like her, because she didn’t kowtow to anyone, but she’s made some really off comments lately. And her show doesn’t help. I’m as bored by her as I am Jennifer Lawrence.

  • Juju

    ” She doesn’t have a nose, she has two holes. ”
    That describes her way better than JLaw, huh.

  • lc

    I don’t care for Jennifer. Joan may be mean, but she speaks the truth. As another poster said, I think Jennifer is having her cake and eating it too.

  • MissMarilyn

    just can’t be a fan of someone who makes a living off of criticizing the appearances of others

    • anonymous

      Yet you don’t seem to have a problem with Kelly Osbourne doing exactly the same thing.

      • MissMarilyn

        ?

  • seamus

    river’s joins now with the list of outspoken celebrities too stupid to realize actors aren’t the one doing the touching up, the magazine editors employ artists to do that. she should take her own advise. stfu if you don’t know what you’re talking about

  • Guest

    I’m not really sure what she’s talking about (I guess because I don’t follow Jennifer Lawrence). I love dark humor, but I don’t see why her comments are ‘funny.’ If Jennifer Lawrence is just telling young women to feel good about their bodies, what’s wrong with that?

  • Winnie

    lmao the Vatican comment had me rolling. and she is absolutely right

  • Erin

    True. Too true.

  • Teiku5

    I find Jennifer Lawrence annoying.

  • roxy lowe

    Joan is a vile woman. Her opinion is irrelevant.

  • Veronique

    Definitely agreeing with Joan on this one. Jennifer is getting super annoying. Who died and made her, a thin and conventionally pretty white girl, the spokeswoman for body image issues in Hollywood?

  • anonymous

    Joan Rivers also makes fun of herself. Jennifer L is annoying and a hypocrite and is always moaning about other people. about time she got a taste of her own medicine Go Joan. everyone on here complaining about Joan are also hypocrites. I have seen way nastier comments on here about celebs. those hoiler-than thou posters should take a look at themselves.

  • anonymous

    Had she made this comment about Miranda Kerr all the do-gooders on here would have been high five-ing Joan.

    • lc

      This is true. I have noticed the same thing. And why? Well, because J.Law is SUPER popular here, and Miranda is not. Yet, they’re all the first to shout about “hypocrisy”…hmmm.

  • Snugglepup

    Go Joan!!!!

  • nola

    To be fair, Jennifer Lawrence has little to no control over promotional material and posters released for her movies. Any more than actresses and models have over the photoshopping done by magazines and catalogs. That’s somebody else’s job.

    And the terrible thing is I’m sure Joan knows that. She’s such a parasite — leeching off others.

  • Bellerina

    If Joan Rivers wants to keep herself relevant by insulting other celebrities, whatever, some people may find that kind of negativity entertaining. It’s free speech, she can say it. What I find tasteless is her use of “shocking” similes and references. WHY did it have to be a comment about child abuse? What do you find so funny about that? Its horrible, disgusting, and not a concept people should allow themselves to be desensitized to.

  • Emme

    Joan Rivers is a hypocrite. Why is she even talking about J.Law?

    Jennifer talks about airbrushing but she has no control over the amount of airbrushing that goes into her official photos. She may be a big star and may make a ton of money right now but she has no leverage to get major publishers whether web or print to not airbrush her. She’s a celebrity, airbrushing comes with the territory. I will only understand Rivers’ criticism when J.Law starts to airbrush her own personal photos and post them on the internet and tries to pass it off as her real self.

    Whether you like J.Law or not, you can’t honestly think she has control over how much she’s been airbrushed.
