    'Offended' Jennifer Lawrence defends fashion choice

    (CNN)Jennifer Lawrence is fighting back against those who criticized a dress she wore to a London press event on Tuesday, calling the conversation around her outfit choice "utterly ridiculous." "This is sexist, this is ridiculous, this is not feminism," the "Red Sparrow" star wrote on Facebook.

It's creating silly distractions from real issues."
