Jennifer Lawrence Plans to Take the Next Year Off From Acting: Here's Why (Exclusive)

"Get a grip people", she finished. "Everything you see me wear is my choice", she said. And if I want to be cold THAT'S MY CHOICE TOO!'

Jennifer Lawrence has defended the controversy surrounding the revealing dress she wore in the cold British weather, calling the double standard claims "utterly ridiculous".

For the occasion, Lawrence selected a stunning Versace number with plunging neckline and hip-high slit.

"Please give Jennifer Lawrence a dang coat, " Jezebel pleaded. That Versace dress was fabulous; you think I am going to cover that gorgeous dress up with a coat and a scarf?

And today, she's giving the internet an earful about what she says is a totally made up controversy.

Helen Lewis, the deputy editor of the New Statesman, received thousands of likes in her critique of Lawrence's choice of clothing.

However, now Lawrence herself has spoken out-yes the actual woman in the picture has weighed in on what really happened, taking to Facebook to hit back at the debate and explain it was her choice to wear what she was wearing. I was outside for 5 minutes. While all of Jennifer's costars were wearing coats (it's about 40 degrees in London this week), the star chose to rock her dress without outerwear.

"At some point it seemed like the weather was blamed because it was the optics, plus the weather, plus the four of us in our outfits; the sum total of all of it was like a f**king worldwide incident!" "It seems like everywhere Jennifer goes she's part of some worldwide incident". "I'm going to be working with this organization as a part of Represent.Us. trying to get young people engaged politically on a local level". "I can not really keep up with e-mails, so the idea of Twitter is so unthinkable to me".

Like it or not, Jennifer Lawrence is Hollywood's reigning relatable queen, and there's nothing more relatable than thirsting after Timothée Chalamet.

The actress recently made headlines when she announced Red Sparrow as her last film before a year-long acting hiatus where she will focus on political engagement.

"This is sexist, this is ridiculous, this is not feminism", she continued.

"Overreacting about everything someone says or does, creating controversy over silly innocuous things such as what I choose to wear or not wear, is not moving us forward", she wrote to her 16 million Facebook followers. It is creating silly distractions from the real issues.
