A brand new still for Serena has been released by the Magnolia Pictures Facebook
Here are scans from the November 2014 issue of Vanity Fair, and the beautiful photoshoot!
This morning, Vanity Fair published a snippet of its upcoming cover story on Jennifer Lawrence, in which the actress addresses the leaking of her nude photos in August. “It is not a scandal. It is a sex crime,” the actress says. “It is a sexual violation. It’s disgusting. The law needs to be changed, and we need to change.”
Lawrence’s statement signals a major change in tone. In the past, the MO for a young starlet whose private photos were leaked online was to stay silent or to apologize. In 2007, an 18-year-old Vanessa Hudgens publicly asked for support from her fans after a nude cellphone pic of her was stolen and published on the Internet. In 2011, Scarlett Johansson’s private photos, sent to her then-husband Ryan Reynolds, were also stolen and leaked, and while the hacker was tracked down and arrested, she seemed to carry a tinge of regret around the violation. In an interview with Vogue in 2012, the actress admitted, “When all those photos came out, of course I go out to dinner and think, Goddamn it, these people have all seen my. . . . ,” her voice trailing off.
Many actresses, including Lake Bell, Mary-Kate Olsen, and Brie Larson, have chosen to stay silent about leaks of their nude photos. When selfies of an unclothed Blake Lively surfaced in 2011, her representatives denied it was the actress altogether and claimed they were “100 percent fake,” prompting hackers to release even more photos—both naked and fully clothed—in an attempt to prove they were of Lively. (Lively has never confirmed that the photos were of her.) A few of the actresses involved in this recent hack, including Victoria Justice and Ariana Grande, have also denied the photos were of them. And Kirsten Dunst seemed downright resigned to the leaks when she told E! News, “I try to have a sense of humor about a really unfortunate situation.”
Lawrence is not apologizing. “I started to write an apology, but I don’t have anything to say I’m sorry for,” she says. “I was in a loving, healthy, great relationship for four years. It was long-distance, and either your boyfriend is going to look at porn or he’s going to look at you.” Lawrence goes after not only the hackers and publishers of the photos, but everyone else who plays a role in these violations of privacy: “Anybody who looked at those pictures, you’re perpetuating a sexual offense.” The statement comes as lawyer Marty Singer, reportedly representing a few of the celebrities involved in the hack, is threatening to sue Google for $100 million for “failing to act expeditiously and responsibly to remove the images but in knowingly accommodating, facilitating, and perpetuating the unlawful conduct.” By changing the tone from embarrassed to incensed, Lawrence’s stance on these leaks might just alter the way we all respond to them.
Here’s the behind scenes video for the shoot for Vanity Fair, plus screen captures.

Jennifer is on the cover of the November issue of Vanity Fair and she talks about the leaked photos for the first time. Here’s the cover and an excerpt from the magazine, which will hit newsstands tomorrow, October 8th.
Cover Exclusive: Jennifer Lawrence Calls Photo Hacking a “Sex Crime”“I was just so afraid. I didn’t know how this would affect my career.”
That’s just the beginning of what Jennifer Lawrence has to say about her stolen-photos saga in the cover story of Vanity Fair’s November issue, the digital edition of which will be available Wednesday, October 8, and which hits newsstands in New York and Los Angeles on Thursday, October 9.
Lawrence originally met with V.F. contributing editor Sam Kashner on August 13. News broke that hackers had stolen personal photos of her and posted them online on August 31—two weeks after the interview and a month after her July 29 cover shoot with Patrick Demarchelier. So Kashner followed up with Lawrence’s team in hopes of giving the actress “a chance to have the last word.”
“I could just sense after having spent a little time with her that she would come out swinging,” Kashner tells VF.com.
The 24-year-old actress had not previously commented on the incident, but she spoke to Kashner at length about the anger she felt. “Just because I’m a public figure, just because I’m an actress, does not mean that I asked for this,” she says. “It does not mean that it comes with the territory. It’s my body, and it should be my choice, and the fact that it is not my choice is absolutely disgusting. I can’t believe that we even live in that kind of world. ”
n the cover story, the Hunger Games star vents her frustration not just with the offending hackers but also with those—including people she knows—who viewed the images online. “Anybody who looked at those pictures, you’re perpetuating a sexual offense. You should cower with shame. Even people who I know and love say, ‘Oh, yeah, I looked at the pictures.’ I don’t want to get mad, but at the same time I’m thinking, I didn’t tell you that you could look at my naked body.”
Lawrence also shares a message for the tabloid community: “You have a choice. You don’t have to be a person who spreads negativity and lies for a living. You can do something good. You can be good. Let’s just make that choice and—it feels better.”
Lawrence speaks of the wrenching moment when she had to call her father about the hack. “When I have to make that phone call to my dad and tell him what’s happened … I don’t care how much money I get for The Hunger Games,” she says. “I promise you, anybody given the choice of that kind of money or having to make a phone call to tell your dad that something like that has happened, it’s not worth it.” She allows herself to joke a little about that terrible moment: “Fortunately, he was playing golf, so he was in a good mood.”
With her words now out in the open, the F.B.I. on the case, and a billion-dollar franchise to carry over the finish line, Lawrence seems to be regaining her footing.
“Time does heal, you know,” she tells Kashner. “I’m not crying about it anymore. I can’t be angry anymore. I can’t have my happiness rest on these people being caught, because they might not be. I need to just find my own peace.”
In Kashner’s more than 3,000-word piece, Lawrence speaks extensively about a variety of subjects, including what she needs in a relationship (“I would so much rather be bored than excited and have passion”), her adoration for the Real Housewives franchise, and her love for comedian Larry David. Kashner also speaks to Hunger Games director Francis Lawrence, Serena director Susanne Bier, and actor Woody Harrelson, who says of Lawrence, “You know, it’s not terrible, people telling you you’re great; what’s terrible is when you start believing it. She never got fucked up.”

Synopsis for the Movie:
North Carolina mountains at the end of the 1920s – George and Serena Pemberton, love-struck newly-weds, begin to build a timber empire. Serena soon proves herself to be equal to any man: overseeing loggers, hunting rattle-snakes, even saving a man’s life in the wilderness. With power and influence now in their hands, the Pembertons refuse to let anyone stand in the way of their inflated love and ambitions. However, once Serena discovers George’s hidden past and faces an unchangeable fate of her own, the Pemberton’s passionate marriage begins to unravel leading toward a dramatic reckoning.
Reuniting Academy Award Winner Jennifer Lawrence and Academy Award Nominee Bradley Cooper on screen, SERENA boasts an incredible supporting cast in Sam Reid, Rhys Ifans, Toby Jones and Sean Harris.

The final trailer The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 for is here!
As New York Fashion Week winds down, the Metropolitan Museum of Art announces that next year’s Met Gala—the annual fashion ball—will be co-chaired by Hollywood’s brightest starlet, Jennifer Lawrence. The Oscar winner will be joined in co-chair capacity by titans in adjacent fields: Vogue editor Anna Wintour and Yahoo! CEO Marissa Mayer, plus Chinese actress Gong Li and Wendi Murdoch, businesswoman and former wife of Richard Murdoch.
The event will take place on May 4, 2015, at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Anna Wintour Costume Center. The theme of both the event and the Met exhibit with which it aligns will be “Chinese Whispers: Tales of the East in Art, Film, and Fashion.”
What this entails, per Vogue.com:
“Chinese Whispers” will primarily examine how eastward-looking Westerners have understood, misunderstood, and appropriated Chinese culture in an exchange that Bolton likens to a complicated game of telephone (which the British call “Chinese whispers”). Drawing on more than a hundred couture and avant-garde samplings from designers as varied as Alexander McQueen and Laurence Xu, the cross-disciplinary exhibition will incorporate painting, decorative arts, and filmic representations of China, occupying both the Lizzie and Jonathan Tisch Gallery of the Anna Wintour Costume Center and the Chinese galleries, located directly above.
Last year, the lavish red-carpet event was co-chaired by Sarah Jessica Parker and Lawrence’s co-star from Silver Linings Playbook, American Hustle, and up next, Serena— Bradley Cooper.
Oh! We finally have a trailer for Serena, via Yahoo! Movies:

The first poster of Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss in Mockingjay Part 1 has been revealed. Or partially, since it’s just her back! Check it out:
The past two years, Oscar season has played host to a Bradley Cooper-Jennifer Lawrence collaboration, but the two made another movie together, and it’s finally being shown. Serena, directed by Susanne Bier, is part of the lineup for the BFI London Film Festival, making what appears to be its world premiere, according to The Playlist. The film will make its festival stop before being released on Oct. 24 in the U.K. It still does not have a U.S. date.
Cooper and Lawrence filmed the movie, which takes place in Depression-era North Carolina, back in March 2012 after they completed Silver Linings Playbook but before they re-teamed with David O. Russell for American Hustle. According to a Hollywood Reporter story from last year, the movie was being shopped to buyers and “generating frenzied interest” from the likes of Fox Searchlight and The Weinstein Company because of (yet another) impressive performance from Lawrence. But there have also been lingering questions about the movie’s quality, considering how long it has taken to get out to the public. An insider told THR, however, that Oscar winner Bier is simply “a total perfectionist.”
In the film, based on a 2008 novel by Ron Rash, Cooper plays a timber mogul. Lawrence plays his wife, the title character, who the New Yorker described as a “Depression-era Lady Macbeth.” The London Film Festival’s summary says that “Lawrence in particular is a treat, playing Serena with an evil eye Bette Davis might have envied.”
