And Lindsay Lohan is not impressed! The Hollywood child star called out Jennifer for dissing acting legend Meryl after collecting her award at the annual Golden Globes on Jan. 13.
Is Jennifer Lawrence getting a little big for her boots? As she accepted the award for Best Actress in a Motion Picture, Comedy or Musical for her part in Silver Linings Playbook, she said “I beat Meryl,” referring to her opponent Meryl Streep, who was nominated for her part in Hope Springs. And Hollywood’s biggest trainwreck Lindsay Lohan has called her out for it!
Jennifer Lawrence Disses Meryl Streep
Jennifer is one of the hottest young actresses around — at only 22-years-old she’s been nominated for an Oscar TWICE. On Jan. 10 she received her second Academy Award nomination for her part in Silver Linings Playbook, and if her success at the Golden Globes is anything to go by, she is a shoo in for the win on Feb. 24!
When collecting her Golden Globe from Will Ferrel and Kristen Wiig, Jennifer’s first words were “What does it say? I beat Meryl!”. Was this a diss, or was Jennifer just shocked to have beat the most victorious actress ever? Jennifer may have two Oscar noms, but acting legend Meryl has been nominated a whopping SEVENTEEN times, and has won three times. That is more noms and wins than any other actor in history. Put that in your pipe and smoke it, Jennifer!
Somehow I doubt Meryl — who did not attend the ceremony — is crying tears over the diss, as she has eight Golden Globe trophies at home to keep her warm at night. And how many does Jennifer have? Oh yes, just one.
And it looks like Lindsay is not impressed with Jennifer’s diss! She tweeted “Words cannot express how much I LOVE Kristen Wiig. And no1 should ever mess with a legend, such as Meryl Streep.” Take that Jennifer! There is nothing like being taken down by the badass that is Lindsay, who like Meryl, has several Oscars. LOL — I am clearly kidding.
It appears that Jennifer probably was kidding, as she was most likely referring to the 1996 film The First Wives Club, where Bette Midler‘s character Brenda picks up Goldie Hawn‘s character Elise’s award and says the same line about beating Meryl. Poor Meryl just can’t catch a break!
Jennifer Thanks Harvey Weinstein
While not busy dissing Meryl, Jennifer also thanked the film’s producer Harvey Weinstein: “I am so honored to be in a film like this…Harvey thank you for killing whoever you had to kill to get me up here today.”

What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Was Jennifer dissing Meryl, or just she surprised she beat her? Was Lindsay right to call her out?
