it’s really telling how tumblr works.
jennifer lawrence constructs a public persona based on her ‘awkwardness’, capitalizing on ‘im not like those other girls’ themes and her supposed shyness while appearing completely at home in front of the camera and she is treated like the second coming of our lord and savior jesus fucking christ.
kristen stewart presents as a very shy person who is incredibly uncomfortable in front of the camera (tbh she presents much like i do in public bc of my anxiety but i will not ascribe any diagnosis to this woman that she doesn’t consent to), including visible discomfort, noticeable nervous ticks, like her entire body shaking during interviews and she is treated as satan incarnate.
it’s because she made twilight
Dude there is nothing wrong with liking Jennifer Lawrence. There is nothing wrong with her being awkward AND being comfortable in front of cameras. Some people can do that and it’s ok, it doesn’t make her a horrible person. It doesn’t make her wrong or crappy.
There is nothing wrong with people liking who they like and I think it’s pretty tacky to make all these assumptions based on the fact you think she’s ‘faking it’.
There is also nothing wrong with liking KStew. I like her, she’s cool and she’s totally gotten the short end of the stick in the media and with so called fans for ages. It’s not okay to treat her like shit and say bad things about her because she was in twilight. I wish people would just stop? Cut her some slack?? IDK.
But this really smacks of the whole ‘Hot GIrl vs. Nerdy Girl’ that cycles around tumblr sometimes. It’s OKAY to BE whoever you wanna BE. Outgoing with short skirts and a tan or shy, quiet and uncomfortable.
I AGREE, KSTEW IS GREAT but lets not be snitty over JL’s popularity just to raise up Kristen. I don’t think we need to put down people to talk about how good she is.
Oh the things this fandom will do with the Stiles & Derek ones.
Hopefully they won’t be anything like the Supernatural Dean Winchester Statue Debacle.
