After raising the hackles of royal watchers across the globe by comparing Kim Kardashian’s new baby Saint West to the Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton’s daughter Princess Charlotte, Lawrence is now feeling the wrath of Lohan’s family after tossing out a throwaway joke about her lifestyle.
Lawrence appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to promote her new dramedy Joy when she made the quip about getting worn out by promoting her films.
“I’m a puker,” Lawrence joked in the interview. “I don’t stop working because I am a show pony. I don’t have a choice. So I just keep going until my body is like, ‘If we don’t make her barf or pass out, she won’t stop.’ I get like, Lindsay Lohan-grade exhaustion, but without any drugs or alcohol. I’m always in bed early. I’m still tired.”

What was just a short bit of a longer appearance did not go unnoticed by the Lohan clan. First Lindsay’s sister Aliana tweeted her displeasure about the joke, then Lindsay herself had a very Zen take on it.
Even mom Dina Lohan had something to say about it. She told Entertainment Tonight, “We love Jennifer Lawrence, we have always been fans of hers,” she said. “It was all unfortunate that she used Lindsay as a reference of not showing up to set, and that whole bit. It was disappointing that she didn’t have her peer’s back. You shouldn’t trash anyone, it was just surprising. My family sticks together.”
Of course, Lawrence’s little dig may have had something to do with a story that surfaced regarding a particularly nasty rumor Lohan spread about her: that she has slept her way to the top. A Twitter user posted an example of that media coverage, which Lohan later claimed was faked.
Quite the unlikely feud, but an interesting one nonetheless. Do you think Lawrence should have sunk to Lohan’s level?
