Jennifer Lawrence Rant: It’s Time For The Super Rich To Stop Whining

Academy award winning actor Jennifer Lawrence is hardly fighting to keep the wolf from the door. Hunger Games star Lawrence has become an outspoken advocate for women’s rights, and of course that is to be applauded. Playing Katniss Everdeen in Hunger Games made Lawrence one of the highest profile and best paid actors in Hollywood. The Richest estimates that 25-year-old Jennifer has a net worth of around $75 million, so many will feel that Lawrence’s position of wealth and privilege is hardly a position to complain about not being paid enough.

Lawrence used an essay in the Lenny to complain about inequality of pay in Hollywood. Seriously? Lawrence is undoubtedly talented and that talent has allowed her to enter the realm of the super-rich. Lawrence, even if she never works again, is set for life. She has earned more in her short career than most people will earn in a hundred life-times, and yet she still feels it is appropriate to look around with envious eyes at the earning of others who are members of the same elitist and exclusive club.

About The Sound of Summer

Hi, I am Alan. I live in Broadstone, Dorset with my wife, Shirley, my son, Ryan and two dogs called Bailey and Jasper. I have recently retired after working in the Armed Forces and in Public Service since 1977 so I now have a bit more time to do the things I love. Music is a huge part of my life and always has been. I have a broad taste in music and can find something to enjoy in most styles of music. I have always been attracted to music which has something to say, is outside the mainstream and is perhaps a bit rebellious. I guess my early influences were late 1970's Punk and new wave bands, especially those who came out of Northern Ireland where I grew up. I loved Stiff Little Fingers, The Undertones, Rudi, Starjets etc but also bands like The Ramones, The Clash, The Jam and so on. I like singer songwriters including Van Morrison, Springsteen, Neil Young & Bob Dylan and in recent years I have become more interested in folk and acoustic music but I also love the sort of high drive energetic Folk/Punk music delivered by bands like The Levellers, Leatherat, Ferocious Dog and many others who frequent the UK Festival scene. I have long since lost the desire to spend my holidays laying around in the sun and these days am much more likely to be found in a muddy field somewhere in the UK during the festival season.
