Jennifer Lawrence “Will Never Be a Bridesmaid Again”: Find Out Why

She knows what she wants! Four-time Oscar nominee and seasoned bridesmaid Jennifer Lawrence vowed in a new interview on Monday, November 21, to “never” be part of a bridal party again.

The Louisville, Kentucky native, 26, who remains close to many of her childhood friends, has already served as a bridesmaid on four separate occasions–and the festivities aren’t exactly slowing down.

“All of my friends are getting married and having babies,” Lawrence told Vanity Fair in its latest issue of her inner circle. “Weddings rock, but I will never be a bridesmaid again. There needs to be a bridesmaids’ union. It’s horrendous.”

The Imitation Game star has even crafted a response to any and all future requests. “If anyone asks me again, I’m going to say, ‘No. That part of my life is over. I appreciate the ask,’” she expressed. “If I do ever get married, I don’t think I will have bridesmaids. How can I rank my friends?”

Lawrence memorably served as a bridesmaid in her big brother Blaine’s wedding back in October 2013. Just this past summer, she attended the intimate nuptials of her longtime best friend Laura Simpson, who memorably accompanied the star to the 2014 Oscars.

Outside of friends from home, Lawrence also boasts of an amazing group of A-list girlfriends, including Emma Stone, Adele and Amy Schumer. The bubbly actress recently became pals with Anna Faris after starring in a movie with Chris Pratt.

“I think women can sense if you are the kind of woman who is going to run off with their husband,” Lawrence said of the industry. “I don’t think I give off that vibe. I give off the ‘Please like me!’ desperation. Which is not threatening.”

The beginning stages of Lawrence’s friendship with Stone is also rather interesting. “She texted me that she got my number from Woody [Harrelson],” the Silver Linings Playbook actress recalled of her Hunger Games co-star. “I replied, F—k off!’ And we’ve been really good friends ever since… I feel like it was our version of The Notebook—365 texts.”

Stone also reciprocated the love for Lawrence the same piece. “She may not even know this, but there was definitely a time early on when I was like OH HEY MY EGO IS GOING NUTS SHE’S SO GREAT AND VIBRANT AND TALENTED I’M SCREWED I’LL NEVER WORK AGAIN GOODBYE YELLOW BRICK ROAD,'” the La La Land star told VF via email. “Then I chilled the f–k out—and remembered we’re completely different and there is room for everyone, even if it’s an industry that doesn’t really seem to support that idea up front. We both really do love each other and care about each other as people, beyond being actors. I support her completely when it comes to work and I feel the same from her, but I know we’d be friends even if we didn’t do the same job.”
