You might remember Laura Simpson from JLaw’s fall on the red carpet? It was Laura Simpson’s neck that Jennifer Lawrence grabbed to try and break her fall when she tripped during their red carpet arrival.
What are friends for?
Simpson details the night from start to finish. It’s pretty interesting to read her take — as a Hollywood outsider — on the event. There are lots of juicy details in her account but here are the three most important take-aways from her report.
1. Movie Starlets Have Class
All the famous women Simpson met, from Angelina Jolie to Scandal’s Kerry Washington were polite, genuine, classy, and wonderful. They weren’t competitive, catty jerks, like you sometimes assume they will be. Simpson writes:
“I think what I took most away from the evening was how lovely all the women were. Actresses tend to get a bad reputation but every woman I met was lovely, witty and introduced themselves to me even though I wasn’t famous — even Anne Hathaway. And Kerry Washington, if your marriage doesn’t work out … CALL ME.”
2. The Paparazzi Treated Simpson Atrociously
On the other hand, the press, fans, and photographers were not very nice to her since she’s not famous. She was kind of appalled. When Jennifer Lawrence tripped, the crowd went crazy. Simpson explains:
“There are flashbulbs and people circling yet no one asks if I need any help because unless you are famous at the Oscars®, you are completely invisible. I have never experienced anything like it. The only time anyone talks to you is if you are in the way of his or her photo. Oh and photographers on the carpet yell “YOU IN THE HUGE DRESS, GET OUT OF THE SHOT.”
3. Brad Pitt Smells Amazing
So Laura Simpson smelled Brad Pitt. And he smelled wonderful, natch. She doesn’t attempt to describe it, but I’m sure he smelled like some combination of freshly mown grass, new parchment, and spearmint toothpaste.
“Brad Pitt smells amazing, like nothing I’ve ever smelled. Eventually we ask what cologne he’s wearing and he tells us, ‘I don’t wear cologne, it’s just my musk I guess.’ I have to choose not to believe him because it would just be unfair to mankind.”
He doesn’t wear cologne. Maybe just a touch of Irish Spring deodorant?
Laura Simpson ended the night (at 3:30am!) with “hair headache and major Barbie feet.” It’s always fascinating for “one of us” to get a peak inside the world of Hollywood. I loved Laura’s candid report. Read it here.
