In Addition to Her Outspoken Nature, Jennifer Lawrence Also Now Has Pneumonia
Our get well wishes to Jennifer Lawrence, who’s battling pneumonia.
The outspoken ‘Silver Linings Playbook’ star didn’t make it to the Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Awards in Los Angeles last night (Jan. 26), and her co-star Jackie Weaver explained that it wasn’t because she was too cool or anything — it was because she felt like absolute crap. And it wasn’t even a result of her self-proclaimed “Hollywood obese” state, either.
Us Weekly reports that Weaver told the crowd, “I’m going to receive this on her behalf. Poor Jen is really sick. She really is sick. She has pneumonia.”
Lawrence’s ‘Silver Linings’ producer Bruce Cohen said the pneumatic actress may make an appearance at the SAG Awards, but isn’t making any guarantees.
“With all her appearances, she hasn’t gotten enough bed rest, but I think her plan is to be at the SAGs tomorrow,” Cohen told press, but added, “I haven’t spoken to her recently.”
Here’s hoping she gets better soon. We need more ‘First Wives Clubs’ references in acceptance speeches.
