This morning Jennifer Lawrence was named Celebrity of the Year on The Today Show.

Her quirky star power has recently helped the second installment of The Hunger Games hit $800 million worldwide. At age 22, she became the third youngest actress ever to to nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actress, which she won for Silver Linings Playbook. Her role in American Hustle has now earned her another nomination for the Golden Globe Award as Best Supporting Actress.

Along with her talent, he Kentucky native has won the hearts of almost everyone with her fun personality and memorable public quotes.

During a interview with Jimmy Kimmel, she said, “I just went to the doctor today, I got a chest X-ray of my lungs and discovered that my breasts are uneven.”

While being interviewed on the red carpet at the Oscars, she said, “I can see the McDonalds right there. Wait, hold on, I didn’t say fries! I’m seeing you talk and all I’m seeing is me being pissed I didn’t get fries. And you have to remind them about ketchup because they never include ketchup, you have to ask for it. Cheapskates.”

At the Academy Awards when Lawrence was walking to the stage to accept her award, she tripped and fell. Once at the microphone, she said, “You guys are just standing up because you feel bad that I fell and that’s really embarrassing, but thank you.”

Her personality goes on for days. But not everyone is a fan of the 23-year old star.

During a recent interview, Joan Rivers slammed Lawrence on her show, Fashion Police.

“My New Year’s resolution is [ensuring] Jennifer Lawrence grows up and realises how lucky she is and calms down.”

According to Express, this came after Lawrence made a comment about Rivers’ show while promoting The Hunger Games: Catching Fire on ABC’s Walter’s Presents: The Ten Most Fascinating People of 2013.

“And there’s shows like the Fashion Police and things like that are just showing these generations of young people to judge people based on things … that they put values in all the things that are wrong and that it’s OK to point at people and call them ugly and call them fat and they call it ‘fun’ and ‘welcome to the real world,’” she continued. “And it’s like, that shouldn’t be the real world. That’s going to keep being the real world if you keep it that way. It’s not until we stop treating each other like that and just stop calling each other fat … with these unrealistic expectations for women. It’s disappointing that the media keeps it alive and fuels that fire.”

Using her Twitter account, Rivers shot back.

Rivers has had many bouts of plastic surgery herself, a fact she has never denied.

“I love that she’s telling everyone how wrong it is to worry about retouching and body image, and meanwhile, she has been touched up more than a choir boy at the Vatican,” she said. “Look at her posters. She doesn’t have a nose, she has two holes. She just has to learn, don’t talk if you’re doing it.”

Perhaps the 80-year old is spouting jealousy over a young women’s natural attributes. In fact, Lawrence has been very candid about any photos of her that were Photoshopped.

Upon seeing her Dior ads on the red carpet earlier this year, she said, “Oh my God, I haven’t seen this. I love Photoshop more than anything in the world. Of course it’s Photoshop; people don’t look like that.”

This season, Lawrence is scheduled to appear on the red carpet once again at the 2014 Academy Awards – and Rivers is scheduled to critique them. That should make an interesting start to a star-studded evening.

    Joan River makes a good point I try to love Jennifer Lawrence but It’s hard for me to trust someone that everyone likes cause it seems as though she’s trying to play all sides in her favor. Plus why is she dowming fashion police when they never once said anything bad about her I could understand if they called you fat and ugly or called you a mess but, and I’m an avid watcher of Fashion Police they never have anything bad to say about her in fact they love her death, witch is why i comeback to my conclusion that she plays all sides

      Just because Jennifer Lawrence hasn’t been attacked by Joan Rivers/the Fashion Police programme herself doesn’t mean it’s not an issue.
      The main demographic is teenage girls/young women, the show’s one aim is to demean an belittle women, women who for the most part are already seen as being unattainable with regards to beauty standards and telling them “it’s still not quite good enough”. Now for the average 15 year old girl at home, she probably won’t look like Jennifer Lawrence – but Jennifer Lawrence according to Joan Rivers still isn’t “good enough”. Jennifer Lawrence is merely providing a voice.

      Joan Rivers did make fun of Jennifer Lawrence
      Joan Rivers also said Jennifer Lawrence doesn’t have a nose, just two holes. Thats called BULLY and how would she feel if someone did that to her grandson?
      Regardless Jennifer Lawrence age, look at Bully Joan River’s. I guarntee no one would bully Melissa, Connor.
      Rag on Edgar her husband. She should get alot of laughs out off of him.People who have botox, face lift, they don’t owe it to no one. If the magazine is air brushing someone, and I’m sure Joan has been air brush, it’s no ones business.
      Joan have you ever known anyone that has been bullied? Jennifer Lawrence is very smart. KENTUCKY Just as Ashley Judd
      ONLY THE BEST…..Get over yourself….because honey your no Betty White and she beautiful and older then you. Has she had a face life, or is Betty White’s beauty NATURAL………

    The more I see Jennifer Lawrence, the more appealing she becomes to me; in fact, if I had my way I’d pick her to be my mom. As for Joan Rivers, her next operation should be a brain transplant.

    Joan Rivers is the Queen of sarcasm and thats not chopped liver thinking that Don Rickles is the King. Their put downs are suppose to be funny and not serious. But with all comedy there is a lull, a dry spell, and a time for change. These two performers are chameleons: ready for any situation or place to lampoon. Right now Fashion Police is in vogue. When it is not, Joan will go and do something else. Thats what she does. I still find it interesting that people ask what was so funny about Rowans and Martins, ‘ Laugh In?’ I laugh when Jennifer Lawrence thinks when she says something she thinks is not funny, that it was just a brain fart.

    Joan Rivers is just mouthing off to get attention. Jennifer Lawrence is right about what Fashion Police and shows like it are promoting. Does anyone besides Joan Rivers really believe that Jennifer Lawrence has control over promotional shots, cover photos or any other photos printed by the tabloids. On a side note, I REALLY wish the authors/editors of news articles would get back to the now ancient art of proof reading.

  • WayneA

    How do you get attention?..poke fun and ridicule anyone who is popular.
    Joan must be running out of material.

  • al

    Sorry Joan, the difference is even though as you say “she has been touched up more than a boy at the Vatican”, she doesn’t judge and comment, ridicule, or point out people’s flaws like you guys do on your show.

  • Tris

    STFU Joan Rivers. Nobody likes you

  • Pearl

    Hahahaha Joan rivers making fun of Jennifer Lawrence. Good luck forehead tuck.

  • Deborah

    Joan Rivers thinks she is so funny when she is stale, vulgar, and a nasty person! I watch Fashion Police once in a while and she insults everyone. I don’t think her fellow cast members think she is that funny as their laughs seem fake and forced. Retire Joan.

  • Pradeep

    people should just read and watch what they like. period.

  • Pete

    Joan Rivers has been stretched, tucked and snipped so much! How much? She is literally talking out of her asshole!

    Joan how would you like people bring Edgar’s death up, making fun no matter who it hurt. Jennifer Lawrence tripped because her dress was to long. Have you ever heard of BULLY? How would you like it if someone was making fun of Connor, big nose, Jewish, Melissa is fat and needs botox like her Mom, JOAN RIVERS. Don’t you have any morals. Do you not understand BULLY causes kids regardless what age to kill themselves. How would you like it if it was you daughter or grandson. If he came home and said someone called him stupid, would it bother you or would you make fun of them. Our world today isn’t like when you were growing up 70 yrs ago. You owe Jennifer Lawrence apology.
    Melissa is beautiful and Connor a doll. Joan stop BULLYIING!
