The ‘Hunger Games’ actress has already picked out her gown for the Academy Awards ceremony this month – where she is nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her role in ‘American Hustle’, but is nervous about her chosen look for the big night on March 2.
Quizzed by Deadline.com about whether she was excited about her red carpet preparations, she joked: ”Exciting? I’m trying to go back to that place where dress fittings seemed exciting. I’ve had one fitting here in Atlanta and I think I have the final fitting on the day of the awards. So I just hope it fits.”
The blonde beauty is expected to be dressed in Dior for the ceremony, after reportedly singing a three-year contract with the luxury fashion house, rumoured to be worth between $15 and $20 million. She has been a spokesmodel for the high-end brand since 2012. The look will certainly be a marked contrast from her appearance in David O’Russell’s 70s heist flick, which memorably saw her don a skin-tight white dress which left little to the imagination.
Costume designer Michael Wilkinson recently said: ”Jennifer and I had fun with the character. We really wanted there to be someone always not quite right about the way she dressed, and for her often to be overdressed, underdressed, not dressed appropriately for a situation, wearing things that really didn’t work so well for her body.”
In an exclusive interview moderated by The Hollywood Reporter, Stephen Galloway, Director and Writer of ‘Silver Linings Playbook,’ David O’ Russell, talks about how a young Jennifer Lawrence won the role of recently widowed, Tiffany Maxwell based off a candid moment with a spider.
Russell recalls the audition with Lawrence back in 2011 that took place over Skype. It was after an unexpected moment with Lawrence killing a spider in her bathroom that blew him away.
“I asked her to cry and she made me cry. Then she went and killed a spider in the bathroom that was behind her. Which was just kind of amazing to me,” Russell explains. “She had cried so she went to get a tissue. Then when she went in the bathroom, she went, ah there’s a gigantic spider in the bathroom. It was in her father’s house, in her parent’s house. Then she imitated how the spider went when she tried to attack the spider. That fascinated me as much as anything else. She was unlike anybody I’d ever seen, unlike anybody I’d ever met.”
Russell personally took the Skype recording to Harvey Weinstein, whose Weinstein Co. backed the film, to his office in New York. Weinstein was skeptical about Lawrence but within 30 seconds of the tape, Weinstein was sold and the rest was Best Actress Oscar winning history.
Oscar-winner Jennifer Lawrence is to take a year-long break from the movie business, according to Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein. Speaking to the Sun on Sunday, Weinstein said the exhausted star of dystopian sci fi saga The Hunger Games and comedy Silver Linings Playbook would be taking a well-deserved rest after an incredibly busy period of filming.
“Jennifer is too nice and will do people favours and agrees to do a movie like American Hustle when she could have had a rest,” said Weinstein. “She signed on to do Hunger Games when she was young and wouldn’t have realised how much it would dominate her life. But she’s a professional and always will be.”
The producer said Lawrence, who took the best actress Oscar last year for her turn in David O Russell’s Silver Linings Playbook, had every right to give last week’s Baftas a miss. The 23-year-old was unable to attend despite taking the best supporting actress prize for Russell’s followup American Hustle. “It’s been non-stop for her and she deserves a rest,” said Weinstein.
IN HER EYES: Jennifer Lawrence brings her captivating gaze to her third Dior campaign. The ads break just in time for the Oscars, where she is nominated for best supporting actress for “American Hustle,” for which she has already scooped up Golden Globe and BAFTA prizes.
Short hair tousled and wind-swept, the actress was photographed by Patrick Demarchelier as she cradles the chain-handled Miss Dior bag. The print campaign is slated to break in Marie Claire in the U.K. on Thursday, followed by the April issue of Vanity Fair in the U.S.
Dior is to feature the images on its Web site at dior.com from Wednesday, including a video in which Lawrence talks about visiting the house’s ateliers to select her couture dress for Oscar night on March 2. “Now I get the haute couture thing,” she tells the camera, concluding: “It’s a big deal.”
Fearne Cotton has said that she is looking forward to speaking to Jennifer Lawrence on the BAFTAs red carpet. The broadcaster is presenting Live from the Red Carpet: The 2014 EE British Academy Film Awards on E! on Sunday, February 16 at 5.15pm.“Jennifer Lawrence I’m a big fan of – I think she was great in American Hustle,” Cotton told Digital Spy.“She seems like a bit of a loose cannon in a good way. That could be fun. I think she just seems really real.” She added: “She bridges between us mere mortals and Hollywood stars. She’s somewhere in between where she still has grounded, normal mannerisms.“Things happen to her and the way that she talks about those instances… she’s not there going, ‘Oh god, I’m on a red carpet’. “She’s talking about it like we would and it’s just really refreshing to see someone who’s having a great time.”“She’s just got a lot of sass. Even on film you can really tell that she’s so in to it, there’s no holding back. “She just gives everything she’s got and she seems like a really passionate, fun person who doesn’t take herself too seriously, and that is obviously a little bit rare in Hollywood.”
