Lawrence brings her own sizzling sexuality to bear, and the snake, well, it probably cared less. Damn that snake!
Who gets a chance to lay on top of a nude Jennifer Lawrence?
At 24, she’s already won an Oscar, starred in her own blockbuster movie franchise and had her private nude photos splashed all over the Internet. So posing nude with a snake seemed like the next logical step.
She can check that one off her bucket list.
Lawrence stripped for the photo last summer in the Hollywood Hills. No word yet from PETA, but they’re sure to be peeved that the snake had to endure a Patrick Demarchelier photo shoot with the incomparable actress.
For the record, JLaw was cool with the snake as long as it didn’t move, like wrapping its tail around her neck. When it made a move, she freaked.
Stylist Jessica Diehl, who should be shoot for setting up such a cliched photo for Vanity Fair, had nothing but praise for the starlet.
“Jennifer has the perfect combination of strength, sexuality, and humor, and, above all, tomboy to pull this off,” she said.
The shot is knock off (they call it a homage) of Richard Avedon’s photo of Nastassja Kinski for Vogue way back in 1981. Like we said, it’s been done.
The Lawrence photo is included in Vanity Fair’s 21st Hollywood issue that features Amy Adams, Channing Tatum and Reese Witherspoon on the cover.
The cover also has two additional flaps with seven other actors who represent the epitome of swank, swagger and sweethearts, as the magazine puts it. See who made the cut here.
