    Jennifer Lawrence Has Responded To People Who Called This Photo Sexist

    "You think I'm going to cover that gorgeous dress up with a coat and a scarf?"

    So, Jennifer Lawrence was in London yesterday promoting her new movie, Red Sparrow. At one point, Jen and the rest of the cast had a photocall on the roof of a fancy hotel.

    Honestly, she looked like the flame emoji come to life.

    But when photos of the cast and director posing as a group emerged online, people were quick to notice the stark difference between the way the men were dressed and the way Jen was dressed.

    One tweet, which now has almost 12,000 likes, called the image "quietly depressing and revealing".

    This is such a quietly depressing (and revealing) image. Not least because I've been outside today and it's bloody…

    True equality means either Jennifer Lawrence getting a coat, or Jeremy Irons having to pose for a photocall in assless chaps.

    "That Versace dress was fabulous, you think I'm going to cover that gorgeous dress up with a coat and a scarf?" she wrote in the post. "I was outside for 5 minutes. I would have stood in the snow for that dress because I love fashion and that was my choice."

    She went on to call the uproar "sexist" and "ridiculous".

    "Over-reacting about everything someone says or does, creating controversy over silly, innocuous things such as what I choose to wear or not wear is not moving us forward. It's creating silly distractions from real issues," she said.

    "Everything you see me wear is my choice," Jennifer concluded. "And if I want to be cold THAT'S MY CHOICE TOO!"
