The 2016 science fiction film Passengers features an impressive cast consisting of Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt in the leading roles. Out of the two, however, it is clear that the bigger draw is Lawrence, who is already a huge star in her own right even before this film came out. Jennifer Lawrence is one of Hollywood’s biggest female leading actresses and was even the world’s highest-paid actress for the years of 2015 and 2016.
Lawrence made her debut in the film industry as a supporting actress in the 2008 film Garden Party. Her breakthrough, however, was in the 2010 indie drama Winter’s Bone, where she played a poverty-stricken teenager. The following year, she had a bigger and more recognizable role as a young Mystique in the 2011 superhero film X-Men: First Class and went on to reprise this role in subsequent films in the franchise.
However, it was her role as Katniss Everdeen in the Hunger Games film franchise that made her the household name she is today. The success of the film, commercially and critically, established her as Hollywood’s highest-earning heroine of all time. This was just the beginning for Lawrence; in 2012, she earned her first Academy Award for Best Actress for her role as a bipolar widow in the film Silver Linings Playbook. The following year, she also earned a BAFTA Award for her performance in the 2013 film American Hustle.
Other than her undeniable talent in acting and sense of humor (which is evident in her interviews), another aspect that makes Jennifer Lawrence a beloved celebrity is her love for her dog. Lawrence owns a Chihuahua mix named Pippi Lawrence-Stocking, or simply Pippi. The pooch got her name as a reference to the “Pippi Longstocking” kid’s books by author Astrid Lindgren.
Because Jennifer Lawrence is notoriously private and has an aversion to use of social media, updates about her and Pippi are scarce. However, they are the subject of a lot of paparazzi shots and are almost always photographed eating out, leaving hotels and traveling together. Lawrence is highly protective of her little furbaby, which even became a cause of commotion. There was an instance when a pap was taking unsolicited photos of Lawrence and goes on to pet Pippi without her permission, which warranted a not-so-nice response from her.
Pippi has appeared alongside Lawrence in a lot of television appearances and interviews; one of Pippi’s most notable videos appeared on the actress’ Facebook, where she is seen dressing the dog up and announced that she will be hosting Jimmy Kimmel’s show.
Passengers Inspired Dog Names
Becoming a dog parent is one of the best decisions you will ever make in your life. It does not matter if this is your first time or if you’ve been a furparent for a long time; a new dog is always a blessing. These four-legged creatures truly are a man’s best friend because they add joy, love, laughter and purpose into your own existence. They are also some of the most loyal creatures you will ever meet and can become your companion for life.
One of the most effortless ways to name your dog is to simply go for an already famous dog’s name. There have been plenty of canines whose names are synonymous to dog fame. This includes the likes of Lassie, Beethoven, Marley and Scooby. You can also go for the names of dogs owned by well-known personalities. There are numerous celebrities who own dogs or are known dog-lovers. For instance, Hollywood superstar Jennifer Lawrence has a little pooch named Pippi, who has become famous in her own right.
Just be sure to take into consideration the length of the name before assigning it to your pooch. Remember, dogs only memorize up to two syllables of a word or a name; hence it is best to pick names that are short and easy to learn.
