Someone sent in a question to Ted at E! Online Asking who Josh Hutcherson and Jennifer Lawrence think they are?
I don’t understand why all these stars are so disrespectful. I just saw on a video Josh Hutcherson dropping f-bombs and Jennifer Lawrence slamming PETA and skinny girls. Do they not realize they are supposed to be role models? PETA is a great organization and, if you are going to curse, try to be more aware of the cameras that are watching you. I am a huge fan of these stars and I think they are incredibly talented, but I do think they could be way more respectful toward their viewers and realize that people judge their character based on how they act. Could Jennifer Lawrence’s careless words and Josh Hutcherson’s potty-mouth bring an end to the young viewers and their parents’ love?
And here is Ted’s response:
Dear Bad Taste:
Look, A, of course I agree with you saying that Jen and Josh are role models. They are two of the hottest young H’wood forces around. But with being an entertainment zenith comes the responsibility of being yourself. If you lose that, you lose everything in my opinion. So, let’s let Josh and Jen just be who they are—whether we always like it or not. I’ll take that over fake, red-carpet plastic any day. P.S. Jen hardly “slammed” PETA and I’ve heard much worse mouths than Josh’s. Lighten up.
I posted this to ask everyone, Do you think actors and actresses who are considered “role models” by the public should censor themselves? Or do you think they should always be who they are naturally?
I (Summer) think they should be who they are. They weren’t asked to be role models and should be allowed to be who they are and speak how they want. They are (despite what some people believe) real living, breathing people. The things that they say make them the charming people they are.
Now you tell us what you think in the comments below!
