Lawrence said in an interview with People at the premiere that she was "excited" to work with Aronofsky on mother! because the director isn't afraid to push boundaries. "Now I'm like...[shocked face]"'. "Do you think about taking a break?" "I normally don't like Harvard people, because they can't go two minutes without mentioning that they went to Harvard".
It's a film that defies easy description or interpretation, and should prove one of the year's most divisive cinema experiences, which is probably why somewhat bold star Jennifer Lawrence agreed to get involved, even though she reputedly thought that Aronofsky had serious psychological problems at first (before they started dating). "When you do your work with truth and honesty, I don't think there's anything to worry about", he said.
Darren has similar kind words to say about his "Hunger Games" star beau too, as he called her a "once-in-a-generation talent".
Jennifer looked angelic as she channeled her on-screen alter-ego on Wednesday, dressing in the same ethereal white dress from the movie posters. It is then that Lawrence reveals the devastating news that she has nothing planned for the next two years. She is now filming her fourth turn as the shape shifting mutant Mystique in X-Men: Dark Phoenix and Lawrence recently signed on to take the starring role of billionaire tech entrepreneur Elizabeth Holmes in Adam McKay's bio-drama Bad Blood. In "Mother!" Lawrence has the title role of the wife of a poet with a bad case of writer's block known only as "him" and played by Javier Bardem. "I didn't even want the script in my house and then I realized that's why he's a genius. I'll see you in six months", she quipped. "I have no idea, but she's, like, a once-in-a-generation talent, and just a whirlwind and a hurricane and an natural disaster and a thunderstorm of talent".
Obviously J. Law knew what she was signing up for before becoming one of Hollywood's most sought after actresses; still, though, her busy schedule - when combined with the invasiveness of the paparazzi and the demands of fans - was bound to take its toll on her eventually.
