Jennifer Lawrence Aims Arrow at Kim Kardashian Divorce

Jennifer Lawrence, the breakout star of “The Hunger Games,” likens Kim Kardashian’s reality show to an early version of the deadly blood sport depicted in the movie. She especially sees parallels with Kim’s divorce drama with Kris Humphries.

Lawrence was searching for analogous situations to explain the role the Hunger Games plays in the post-apocalyptic society of Panem, where 24 “tributes” fight to the death for public sport.

“I was watching the Kardashian girl getting divorced, and that’s a tragedy for anyone,” she said in an interview with Parade magazine.

“But they’re using it for entertainment, and we’re watching it. The books hold up a terrible kind of mirror: This is what our society could be like if we became desensitized to trauma and to each other’s pain.”

Kim filed for divorce from Humphries just 72 days after their blowout wedding. The two have been locked in a court battle ever since. Humphries wants to end the marriage in an annulment, which would be tantamount to a finding of fraud.

The divorce drama played out on the Kardashian reality show “Kourtney and Kim Take New York.” The show was criticized as an attempt to portray Humphries in a bad light to justify her decision. The show received its highest ratings ever as viewers tuned in to watch the train wreck.

Lawrence portrays Katniss Everdeen, one of the teens drawn into the Hunger Games by a annual lottery from Panem’s 12 Districts, or states.

Is Jennifer Lawrence the New Kristen Stewart?

Kim has been weathering a barrage of criticism ever since she announced her divorce on Halloween last year. In the latest development, lawyers for Humphries slammed the reality queen for spending “much effort and energy to mis-direct the public’s perception” about the New Jersey Nets basketball player.

Speaking through his new legal team, Humphries slammed the Kardashians for their “ridiculous and defamatory allegations and personal attacks” against him.
