According to the Independent, the photograph of the two kissing was taken in 2012, and Grant happened to be the photographer as well. Many fans had assumed that Lana Del Rey was kissing Jennifer Lawrence in the picture when it was her sister.

Chuck Grant has since come forward and cleared the air. She joked that it's "comforting" to know she could act as the Hunger Games actress's "stand-in." Chuck Grant said in an interview:

“Getting a lot of messages about looking like Jennifer Lawrence, but this takes it a bit too far, don’t you think? Lana del Rey and Jennifer Lawrence. Comforting to think that if my photography were to fail I could probably work as Jennifer Lawrence’s stand-in… #sisters.”

Although Grant has confirmed that she is the person in the picture, neither of the sisters has commented on why the photographs were taken.

What is the Lana Cult on TikTok?

The Lana Cult is a self-assigned name for fans of the Summertime Sadness singer. Fans are changing their profile pictures on the video-sharing platform to that of Lana Del Rey and the most used image is of her grinning with a car on fire in the background.

Although the trend seems pointless, the hashtag 'LanaCult' has amassed over 48.6 million views on TikTok and counting.

To be part of this trend, they will have to change their profile pictures to that of the 37-year-old singer. They can also post TikTok videos of the singer on the video-sharing platform.
