Jennifer Lawrence Takes Dig At Rival Kristen Stewart

The Hunger Games‘ star Jennifer Lawrence and ‘Twilight’ star Kristen Stewart are considered professional rivals in Hollywood. Recently, Kristen was selected over Jennifer for the starring role in ‘Lie Down in Darkness,’ the big screen adaptation of William Styron’s novel. Perhaps losing the role is what’s led to Jennifer’s reported zings?

“Jennifer has a healthy rivalry with Kristen, but she thinks that the cheating scandal she got caught up in could have been avoided. Recently, although she didn’t say Kristen’s name directly, she couldn’t resist having a subtle dig at her rival. She told a group of friends that she would never two-time Nicholas.

Jennifer then went on to say that she has received attention from many older men, especially powerful movie directors in the past, and would never want to jeopardize her career by getting involved with a married man. She was clearly referring to Kristen’s liaison with Rupert.”

Ouch. Well, Kristen can take solace in her professional accomplishments.

“Kristen is obviously down about what happened with her and Robert Pattinson, but she was thrilled when she found out she beat Jennifer Lawrence to a movie role,” a source told RadarOnline.com. “She is insanely jealous of Jennifer, not just because she feels The Hunger Games has stolen some ofTwilight’s thunder, but because everyone was talking about her as such a beautiful actress.

“Kristen has never been comfortable in her own skin and feels threatened by Jennifer’s good looks. And the thing with Jennifer is, she isn’t just attractive, she’s a talented actor. Jennifer’s a threat to Kristen, she’s only a year younger, so chances are they will continue to battle it out for the same movie roles. The pair of them are very competitive too; they won’t give up any future roles without a fight.”
