Lawrence's heartfelt portrayal earned her an Oscar nomination, as well as recognition by the Screen Actors Guild Awards and the Golden Globe Awards (among others).
Lawrence’s assistant, Talley, meets me at the front gate and ushers me through the house to the kitchen, where moments later Lawrence appears in a white crop top and faded boyfriend jeans rolled at the ankle.She is barefoot, tan, and very blonde, her hair cut into a short bob.The house—a convincingly faux-Tuscan villa, with five bedrooms, six bathrooms, a gym, a theater, and a hair-and-makeup room (“Thank for Jessica Simpson,” says Lawrence of the previous owner)—is exactly as old as Lawrence herself.She just turned 25 a few weeks ago, with a party here; her friends persuaded Kris Jenner to come and present Jen with a cake in the shape of a pile of poop that read, “My knees buckled,” says Lawrence.“And then I got hammered and talked to her like I think I’m part of the family.” The house had been renovated just before she bought it, so all Lawrence had to do was fill it with furniture.
“I hired these decorators from Louisville, where I grew up,” she says. .” The result is a kind of luxe-comfy-chic, with some rustic flourishes, like tables made out of old Kentucky-bourbon barrels.“There’s this place, Bittners, I would walk by when I was a little girl and go, ‘Ooooooh, one day,’ because it was so . “I can’t believe what a difference furniture has made in my overall emotional well-being,” she says.As she opens a bottle of rosé, her dog, Pippi, comes scampering into the room.Smallish and brown, she is adorably hard to pin down. “Oh, my God, I wish I could ask her.” When did you get her?Here I stumble into a subject that I wouldn’t have dreamed of bringing up so soon: the nude-photo leak.It was exactly a year ago that hackers stole photos from Lawrence’s i Cloud account and posted them on the Web, an episode she labeled a “sex crime.” Her mother was visiting with a new puppy when the news broke.
