Jennifer Lawrence Is the Jesus Christ of Acting

Everybody is in love with Jennifer Lawrence so it’s only a matter of time until the inevitable backlash begins. Until then, we have people like Donald Sutherland praising her up and down like she’s the second coming of Christ. Which heĀ thinks she is.

“When I worked with her, I realized the child was a genius,” Donald Sutherland, who plays President Snow in the Hunger Games movies, told me last night at the premiere of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1 (in theaters on Nov. 21). “She’s the right person at the right time in the sense of Joan of Arc or Jesus Christ, any genius, in that sense.

“She has the ability as an actor to tell the truth out of the material and that truth is immediately recognizable with everybody because it hits you in your heart, your solar plexus and your mind,” the legendary actor continued. “And she has the genius of person to be not affected by all of this. She’s just a real girl.”

Calm the f**k down, Donald Sutherland. At the end of the day, she’s an actor reciting lines off a piece of paper. She just so happens to do it better than 80% of other people. It’s not like she’s finding a cure for cancer or writing dick jokes on websites. Those are the people we should be celebrating.
