A picture of Jennifer Lawrence and her male Sparrow co-stars is upsetting people for one big reason — please note the coats all the men are wearing. Seems pretty cold, huh? But then look at Jennifer Lawrence. She's taking the photo in a gorgeous dress, but with completely bare arms. And as New Stateman's deputy editor Helen Lewis, who posted the picture on Twitter points out, it was "bloody FREEZING" outside.
Lewis posted a picture of Joel Edgerton, Jeremy Irons, Matthias Schoenaerts and Sparrow's director Francis Lawrence all bundled up nice and cozy, while Lawrence is in what basically amounts to a very fancy piece of fabric. Because the dress is sleeveless, Lawrence's arms are exposed to the elements, as is her leg in the dress' thigh-high slit.
Along with the picture, Lewis wrote "This is such a quietly depressing (and revealing) image. Not least because I've been outside today and it's bloody FREEZING."
She followed up with another tweet, this one reading, "True equality means either Jennifer Lawrence getting a coat, or Jeremy Irons having to pose for a photocall in assless chaps."
People on Twitter reacted to Lewis' tweet, some with similar feelings.
Others, however, pointed out that Lawrence is an adult who can make her own choices.
And others still wondered if Lewis was making a big deal about nothing.
Or maybe, as some people suggested, she was just trying to show off her Versace dress.
And as this person reminds us, we can't actually know what Lawrence is thinking.
EXCEPT THAT NOW WE CAN KNOW, because J-Law herself has responded to the whole situation.
So there it is, straight from the (cold) horse's mouth.
