Watch: Jennifer Lawrence swears on God she was not making a political statement... by wearing flip-flops?
We interrupt our regularly scheduled coverage of indictments, June degeneracy, and public school indoctrination with the following breaking news out of Hollywood. Actress Jennifer Lawrence did NOT wear flip-flops on the red carpet at Cannes to make a political statement. Or even a fashion statement.
As she explains now, she just wanted to be comfortable. So stand down, America.
(Yes, this is really a thing the internets are talking about).
What did Jennifer Lawrence do at Cannes?
She wore flip-flops. Seriously. That's it. She wore flip-flops as she was walking the red carpet for Excellent Cadaver instead of heels, and it was misconstrued as a political statement.
As People magazine reports, there is a long and messy history of women’s footwear at the global film festival.
In 2015, women attending the premiere of Carol were denied entry because of their flat shoes, which sparked online outrage and a closer look at the festival’s notoriously strict dress code that includes a high-heel requirement. Shoe choices (or lack thereof) at Cannes were also buzzy topics of conversation when Julia Roberts walked the glamorous red carpet sans shoes in 2016, and other big stars like Kristen Stewart and Susan Sarandon opted for flats.
“I had no idea there was a whole controversy..."
The actress tells ET she was NOT speaking out against a dress code. It was a comfort thing. And a not wanting to fall on her ass thing.
"I had no idea until it came out that there was a whole controversy with people wearing flats or walking down the red carpet barefoot," swears Lawrence. "I had no clue. My shoes were a size too big."
She was more concerned about herself, "I knew I would eat sh*t if I went down in the shoes that were a size too big. I put on the flip-flops, and then everybody's like, 'What a statement! Wow!'"
J-Law can't win for losing. She tried playing nice with the Hollywood elite by pledging to spit on Donald Trump and refusing to affirm her family members' identities as Trump supporters. Instead, she was shamed by the left because her "white feminist sentiments about glass ceilings and [her] being loud [showed] little in the way of action."
This was SUPPOSED to be her big return to acting after putting her career on hold to fix democracy. Instead, all anyone wants to talk about is her feet. It's all so very unfair.
That said, she was excellent in the 2011 film Like Crazy.
