An American gossip site had leaked footage of Lawrence pole-dancing in a Vienna nightclub earlier this week.
Jennifer Lawrence has defiantly refused to apologise after a video of her doing pole dancing in a nightclub was leaked without her authorisation online earlier this week – and quite right too.
The 26 year old Hunger Games actress was seen attempting some tricky pole dance moves as she enjoyed a night out in a Vienna nightclub recently for a friend’s birthday. The clip, leaked online via an American gossip website early on Wednesday (May 17th), shows her hanging onto a pole before rejoining her friends at a table.
“Look, nobody wants to be reminded that they tried to dance on a stripper pole by the internet,” she wrote later that day via Facebook, explaining it was one of her best friend’s birthday and she “dropped her paranoia guard for one second” to have enjoy herself.
Anchored by the almost ridiculously engaging Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence, this sci-fi movie travels through drama, comedy, romance and action as it tells a deep-space story with essentially just three characters. Directed by Morten Tyldum (The Imitation Game), the film looks sleek and cool, but it's the charismatic duo at the centre that holds the attention.
The spacecraft Avalon is on a 120-year journey from Earth to a distant homestead planet, where its 5,000 hibernating passengers will wake up to start a new life. But only 30 years into the trip, one pod opens by mistake. And James (Pratt) realises that he's come out of suspended animation 90 years too soon. His only company is a robotic barman (Sheen), so in a moment of weakness he wakes up another passenger, Aurora (Lawrence). As they begin to settle in for their long, lonely life together, the ship begins misbehaving, waking up a crew member (Laurence Fishburne) who works with James and Aurora to figure out why all of this is happening. And they'll need to work quickly if they hope to save the lives of the sleeping passengers.
Basically, the film is like a mash-up of Titanic and Gravity. The Avalon is a super-whizzy cruiseliner, and Tyldum finds all kinds of visually stunning settings in its various areas, from the vast shopping mall at the centre to a windowed swimming pool and a few gasp-inducing spacewalks. There's also a riff on the disparity between poor passengers like mechanic James in steerage and the wealthy ones like writer Aurora. Plus a hint of an idea in the corporate conglomerate that's making a fortune from this ambitious project. But these deeper themes remain well under the surface, as the attention focuses squarely on the journey James and Aurora are taking. This may leave the movie feeling rather thin and superficial, but it's also deeply involving.

It's not all slanging matches and bad Instagram posts.
Apropos their stand-off on BBC Radio 1 which saw them trade a number of insults, the reality of the situation is that 'Passengers' stars Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence are best friends. Despite their public pranks, they have some really nice things to say about each other.
Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt are the best friends of the year
The chemistry between these two talented stars has been obvious since promotion of the sci-fi thriller began, she we can only imagine how this will translate to the cinema screen with their forthcoming movie. It's a sign of an amazing friendship that they can happily make fun of each other - Chris with his Instagram prank of cropping Jennifer out of selfies, Jennifer with her revenge attack on a 'Passengers' bus banned on Jimmy Kimmel Live and the pair of them on Radio 1's 'Playground Insults' - but it's an even better sign when they can be so genuine with their appraisals of each other.
Lawrence is reportedly attached to star in the film about biotech firm Theranos.

The hacker pleaded guilty to one count of accessing information illegally.

Will Jennifer Lawrence get justice for nude photo leak?
Sentencing has not yet been announced, but yesterday (May 24th 2016) 36-year-old Pennsylvania resident Ryan Collins went through with a plea deal and admitted to just one count of 'gaining unauthorized access to a protected computer to obtain information' according to a report by Associated Press.
This closing chapter of the First Class trilogy falls into the same trap as The Last Stand, the final part in the original X-Men trilogy: it shifts the focus from character detail and social commentary into a more standard effects-heavy action brawl. There's still a lot of strong character detail, and a big story that can't help but be entertaining. But it's impossible to escape the feeling that the film's scale is far bigger than it needed to be.
It's now 1983, and while Professor X (James McAvoy) works with Hank (Nicholas Hoult) to set up his school for young mutants, his old friend and nemesis Erik (Michael Fassbender) has started a family in a rural corner of Poland. But he can't hide forever. Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) is roaming the world helping mutants where she can, meeting the teleporting Kurt (Kodi Smit-McPhee) in Berlin before heading to Cairo. There, CIA operative Moira (Rose Byrne) has just uncovered a bizarre underground cult that has revived the ancient super-mutant Apocalypse (Oscar Isaac), who immediately sets out on a quest to cleanse the planet and start over again. He needs four assistants, and the question is which of the X-Men will go over to the dark side.
This is the third comic book movie in a row about superheroes fighting each other, after Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Captain America: Civil War. And it's similarly enormous (all three films are around two-and-a-half hours long), with mammoth battles that don't quite make logical sense but are compelling enough that the audience goes with them. This film has a bit more emotional depth, including back-stories that have been developed with unusual complexity. But some characters fall through the cracks.

J-Law reckons Hollywood has become so used to putting very skinny female actors on screen that it has lost sight of what a 'normal' body shape is.
Jennifer Lawrence has called on Hollywood and the wider movie industry to embrace a “new normal” for female body sizes in a new interview.
Speaking to Harper’s Bazaar magazine, Lawrence argues that the film industry has become so conditioned and accustomed to female movie stars with skinny bodies that healthily proportioned women are now deemed to be overweight. “I would like us to make a new normal body type,” Lawrence stated.
“Everybody says: ‘We love that there is somebody with a normal body!’ And I’m like: ‘I don’t feel like I have a normal body.’ I do Pilates every day. I eat, but I work out a lot more than a normal person.”
They spent Valentine's Day together, so they must be in love, right?
Though everything about it looks like two friends grabbing some food and drink together, Jennifer Lawrence has sparked rumours that she might be dating comedian and actor Aziz Ansari – because they had dinner together on Valentine’s Day.
A source tells People that Lawrence, 25, and Ansari, 32, dined together at the Commodore in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, on Sunday night and were enjoying each other’s company.
“They looked friendly and were showing each other stuff on their iPhones and chatting and laughing. They tried lots of different food and looked like they had a lot of fun. They looked like really good friends.”
