Jennifer Lawrence is many things to many people: a pizza pal; just, like, so real and relatable; a colleague with whom you do sex if your name is Nicholas Hoult (Hi, Nicholas Hoult!); a total stranger you pretend to be so sick of hearing about but evidently aren’t; some random broad afflicted with benign paroxysmal positional vertigo.
To Kitty, a 30-year-old fan of Jennifer Lawrence, a dog trainer, wife and mother [in order of her priorities], Jennifer Lawrence is a face she wants to wake up to every day, so naturally Kitty spent $27,000 (AUD) on six plastic surgery procedures to look like Jennifer Lawrence in this, the latest instalment of the unhinged with cash to burn.
ABC America have profiled Kitty, and another woman who thinks she looks like Michelle Rodriguez because she has chronic Resting Bitch Face, in a slightly grotesque and highly-engrossing exposé on our collective fascination with hating ourselves, spending obscene amounts of money to assuage those feelings of thinly-veiled self-loathing masquerading as empowerment, the husbands who don’t “have particularly strong feelings one way or another” and the ineloquent vultures that profit from making it all possible (“This face is prettier. The line is prettier. This is prettier. The cheeks are higher and prettier.”)
“I can appreciate that her personality is spunky and fun. I can appreciate that her body is banging,” says Kitty of her muse. “I’m trying to look like a very capable, very personal level-headed female who is an Academy Award winner.”
Adds her co-star, Rosie, “I’m not a freak. I’m obsessed with trying to look like Michelle Rodriguez… Why not?”
Indeed. The results? Two adequate Gloria Estefan doppelgängers.
