I like her but I liked her a lot more 40 lb lighter. I think it's affected the air time she gets...

I wonder if her weight gain was related to her pregnancy. At any rate - she's still easy to listen to and does a good job. I thought her bio was interesting, which is why I shared it here.

The weight gain has progressed long after her child was born. She's fortunate in being one of those people whose weight doesn't show in the face that much. Probably the stress of her husband's being deployed has more to do with it than pregnancy...

Wow - you've really kept up with her weight situation - I'm impressed! :p

She still looks like she'd be a fun date. Not while married of course.....especially to an Special Forces Lt. Colonel!

Jennifer Lawrence and Adele surprise crowd at New York City gay bar


Patrons of the New York City gay bar Pieces were in for the surprise of their lives Friday night when superstars Jennifer Lawrence and Adele dropped by. Adele even took the stage at one point, but she wasn't belting out "Hello."
The stars appear to have shocked customers at the Greenwich Village bar once they were discovered, with many taking to Twitter to express their excitement. User Al_Craze tweeted, "I just partied with Jennifer Lawrence and Adele.... I am speechless."
The stars met at the 2013 Oscars, where Adele won best original song for "Skyfall" from the James Bond movie's soundtrack, reports ET. Lawrence took the award for best actress for "Silver Linings Playbook"that night.
Lawrence is starring in the upcoming Marvel flick "Dark Phoenix" as Mystique later this year. Adele's record-breaking third album, "25," was released in 2015, but she has remained relatively removed from the spotlight since.
The political component is the thread started by Crimson Audio with Jennifer Lawrence and how important (I think anyway) having pop culture involved in our political industry, if that makes any sense.
Here is that video again:

I think she was at her most endearing when she showed up on Colbert's show and proceeded to get smashed. It was obviously planned. He already had a bottle handy. At one point, she turned towards the cameras and said "All my nephews and nieces back in Kentucky are going to say 'Aunt Jen's drunk.'" I remember hoping she had a DD... :)
