Wannabe Brit! 6
Reasons We Could
Totally See Jennifer
Lawrence Moving Across
Jennifer Lawrence may be America’s Sweetheart, but apparently she has the United Kingdom on her mind!
In a recent interview, the 23-year-old actress revealed what an anglophile she truly is.
“I’m a big fan of all things British,” she said. “I get to spend some time there now and again and I like that I can go for fish and chips wearing the most awful outfit and it’s cool, you know.”
Can’t you totally see Jen ditching America and moving across the pond?
Okay… so fish and chips and the ability to wear comfortable, albeit unfashionable, clothes without judgment isn’t necessarily enough of a reason to ditch your home country, but the more we think about Jen becoming an ex-pat, the more it makes perfect sense!
Check out these six reasons why we can see Jennifer make the move!
1. She already has a British boyfriend!
Jennifer met her on-again-off-again boyfriend Nicholas Hoult while working on X-Men: First Class. If you’re wondering why he looks so familiar, he’s also the little boy in About a Boy, which is, like, the most quintessentially British movie ever.
2. Plus, she likes British men in general
Jen once explained that she’s more attractive to British men because they are more polite and she likes their “funny accents.”
“Well, they have these wonderful manners and everything they say is funnier, just because of the accent,” she explained. “I like the way that accent changes, too. There’s the cute ‘I’m trying to be adorable because I know you’re mad at me’ accent. And then there’s the drunk accent where all the consonants have vanished.”
3. She’s immersed herself in British culture (via reality TV)
Jen recently told The Sun that she doesn’t do much when she’s in the UK, but she does have an affinity for British TV because they get to curse more than we can in the States. She even revealed her favorite show—the reality program The Only Way Is Essex!
“You guys have your own Jersey Shore which is so ridiculous it’s amazing,” she said. “I can’t even begin… It’s like another world in Essex!”
4. She’s into British fashion!
When Jen covered British Glamour in April of 2012, she admitted that British fashion affected her sartorial tastes.
“I loved the relaxed way British girls dress. I think I dress like [a British girl],” she said. “I like Topshop, Portobello Road and Selfridges—although I always get Selfridges and Waitrose mixed up, which has led to a few disappointing shopping trips.”
5. She likes British Pubs
Jennifer hasn’t exactly been shy about how she feels about Los Angeles and celebrity culture. The tameness of London appeals to her, compared to the madness of LA, where she needs friends to pick up food for her!
“That’s why I love London,” she said. “All these perfect little pubs in every corner where everyone is fine. The more I travel, the more I get tired of London when I get back.”
