"Wow. I don't really know where to get started on this "Jennifer Lawrence wearing a revealing dress in the cold" controversy", the 27-year-old Oscar victor wrote. Jennifer Lawrence has her eyes on Oscar-nominated actor Timothee Chalamet but she's going to wait until he celebrates a few more birthdays before making a real move.

She explained to Ronan Keating on Magic FM: "Backstage Joanna and I were about to go out and she was going to present me".

"I mean, it was pretty ridiculous to get angry over something like that". "I would have stood in the snow for that dress because I love fashion and that was my choice", she wrote.

Some called the photo depressing, others thought it looked awkward and a bit ridiculous, and many said that they felt bad for the actress who they assumed had been forced to wear what she was wearing for the goal of promoting the movie.

British journalist Helen Lewis identified what she called the "quietly depressing" double standard at play.

Jennifer Lawrence has responded to the issue that probably should have never been an issue to begin with, but here we are.

"Who better to kick the whole evening off than the hottest actress on the planet".

All the men are nicely wrapped up bracing themselves against the chill of a freezing London, while Jennifer Lawrence is wearing a plunging thigh-split gown.

Or maybe, as some people suggested, she was just trying to show off her Versace dress. "Because I'd be like, 'I don't want the robe".

Lawrence added she had emailed Lumley after the ceremony to apologise and received a response saying: "I have no idea what you're talking about".

The "Red Sparrow" actress is already working with the anti-corruption charity, and recently surprised a group of high school students at Cleveland Heights High School in Cleveland, Ohio with a talk about politics in association with the charity.

'And then, of course, in a few months I will be devastatingly lonely and feel like I'm on some long waiting list.
