Jennifer Lawrence and 12 other legendary and breakout actresses take the cover of Vanity Fair‘s Hollywood issue.
The 22nd annual cover feature highlights some of Hollywood’s powerhouse women including Jane Fonda, Cate Blanchett, Viola Davis, Charlotte Rampling, Brie Larson, Rachel Weisz, Lupita Nyong’o, Alicia Vikander, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Helen Mirren, Saoirse Ronan, and Diane Keaton. This year, Brie, Cate, Alicia, Jennifer, Saoirse, and Charlotte are all nominated for Oscars in the acting categories.
The mag’s fashion and style director Jessica Diehl discussed the all-black palette of the cover, saying, “The dresses on the cover are all black because that lets each actress’s face stand out—faces that are expressive, and in many cases even transformative.”
Check out VanityFair.com for more from the actresses, and pick up the mag nationwide on Tuesday (February 8).
For Vanity Fair’s 2016 Hollywood Portfolio, the legendary photographer captured 13 of the cinema’s finest actresses for the portraits you see here. Measured by years, awards, or performances, they’re dazzling to behold.
18 FILMS, INCLUDING JOY AND THE HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAY—PART 2 (2015); ONE ACADEMY AWARD, ONE BAFTA.
With almost more life force than ought to be allowed, Jennifer Lawrence has seized the forefront as a dragonslayer with a goofy streak, a female Lancelot with a playful glint, capable of getting up to no good. It is this champagne tickle beneath her oval surface that has enabled her to scale from the rawboned resilience of Winter’s Bone—the film that first put her in the firmament—to the rallying defiance of the Hunger Games series and mutant agonistes of the X-Men franchise without becoming an ennobled drag. Every emotion shines through her fresh and untinted. The creative threesome with writer-director David O. Russell and the never demure Bradley Cooper—Silver Linings Playbook, American Hustle (her tutorial on the dangers of the “science oven” belongs to the ages), and Joy, where she mops up her fourth Oscar nomination at the infernally young age of 25—gave her room to carom and showcased the irrepressible side of her that makes her every red-carpet appearance and awards ceremony a potential Happening, especially if Amy Schumer is in on the caper.
Never one to shy away from a challenge, Jennifer Lawrence just scored the role of Fidel Castro’s 19-year-old mistress in the upcoming flick “Marita,” written by “American Hustle” scribe Eric Warren Singer.
The “Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2” hottie will play Marita Lorenz, a woman who had an affair with the Cuban dictator after being sent back to Cuba on an assassination mission.
Of course the real-life Lorenz has plenty of tales that haven’t exactly been verified, including her claim that both Castro and Venezuelan dictator Marcos Perez Jiminez fathered her children. Marita also maintained that she and Lee Harvey Oswald met as part of the Communist plot to kill President John F Kennedy.
They get an A for Academy Award and an E for ecstatic! Shortly after the 2016 Oscar nominations were announced on Thursday, January 14, the nominees — including Revenant director Alejandro Inarritu, Joy actress Jennifer Lawrence, Room star Brie Larson and singer Lady Gaga — released statements to Us Weekly and celebrated their nods via social media.
Jennifer Lawrence, Best Actress in a Leading Role Nominee for Joy
“I am beyond grateful and humbled by this nomination. I feel incredibly honored to be recognized among the other amazing women in this category. Joy is an incredibly inspiring story about an ordinary woman who does extraordinary things. For me, working with David O. Russell has been nothing short of extraordinary, and I share this nomination with him as well as our incredible supporting cast. I could not be more proud to be a part of this film and thankful to the producers and Fox for their unyielding support.”

Lawrence—who are besties if you haven’t heard—took the stage at the Golden Globes to tease each of their nominated films, Trainwreck and Joy, respectively. Lawrence introduced herself as J-Law, and Schumer tried to call herself A-Schu. That doesn’t quite have the same ring, and Lawrence pointed out celebs don’t usually come up with their own nicknames.
That didn’t stop Schumer from trying to give herself a couples name with Tom Hardy, though. And when Lawrence asked Schumer what people usually call her, Schumer’s response had to be bleeped out.
Never one to mince her words, Jennifer Lawrence called out E!’s Juan Pablo Fernandez-Feo during her press conference after (January 10) 2016 Golden Globes.
The “American Hustle” hottie, who had just won the Best Actress in a Motion Picture- Comedy for “Joy,” scolded the reporter for using his phone while asking her how she feels about the upcoming Oscars.
Lawrence fired back, “You can’t live your whole life behind your phone bro. You’re just not gonna… You can’t do that. You gotta live in the now. We are at the Golden Globes, if you put your phone down, you’d know that.” And apparently, Jen came off as less-than-gracious, with social media users writing comments like, “I’m a fan of her, but that was kinda rude,” and, “I used to find Jennifer Lawrence quite funny and relatable but now she’s quite rude and arrogant. Shame.”
Always a memorable event, the 2016 Golden Globes kicked off at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Sunday night (January 10) and there were plenty of winners in the house.
Picking up the Best Motion Picture- Musical or Comedy title was the Ridley Scott flick “The Martian,” while Matt Damon won the trophy for Best Actor in a Motion Picture- Musical or Comedy.
Meanwhile, “The Revenant” snagged the Best Motion Picture- Drama and Best Director (Alejandro Inarritu), while the Best Actor in a Motion Picture- Drama award went to Leonardo DiCaprio.
Even Ricky Gervais had a fabulous time as he hosted the Golden Globes for the fourth time, cracking jokes about Mel Gibson, Ben Affleck, Roman Polanski and Caitlyn Jenner.
