Jennifer Lawrence Is Suffering From Pneumonia


As we all know, Jennifer Lawrence is one of the harest working gals in showbusiness. The actress recently appeared on Saturday Night Live, and she’s been picking up accolades everywhere for her critically-acclaimed performance in Silver Linings Playbook (including a Golden Globe). But last night the actress was unable to accept her award from the Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts, and a co-star revealed that she’s been suffering from a bad case of pneumonia.

E! has the story:

Golden Globes winner Jennifer Lawrence is apparently not feeling good as gold these days, according to her Silver Linings Playbook costar Jacki Weaver, who accepted an Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts Award for the ailing Lawrence today E! News has learned.

“I’m going to receive this on her behalf. Poor Jen is really sick. She really is sick. She has pneumonia,” said Weaver, accepting the AACTA for Best Actress on behalf of her costar at the event held at Soho house.

Lawrence has been under the weather at least since the Golden Globes…

Such bummer news, right? I sincerely hope that this isn’t a horribly serious case of pneumonia (not that there are any, like, playful versions of it). Both of my boys got hit with it last winter and it was intense, to say the least. Here’s hoping Jennifer is getting everything she needs, and that she’ll be well enough to attend the Oscars!
