Jennifer Lawrence talks to Entertainment Weekly in a new interview on working with David O. Russell. Joy, of course, is the duo’s third collaboration after Silver Linings Playbook – for which Jennifer won Best Actress Oscar – and American Hustle.
“It’s fascinating and terrifying working for him because he’s a mad scientist genius,” says Lawrence. “He’s inspired by anything. One time he wrote a scene by watching me get my hair done. He just went, ‘Oh! The sound of a shovel in the ground. Sinister!’ And then he ran out of the room.” She laughs. “I always see the wide eyes of people who’ve never worked with him before. I tell them, ‘You have to let go of all your s–t. You are the paint. He’s the paintbrush and the canvas.”
Jennifer also divulges that she’s not a fan of snow. (Ahem)
“I still have Snowst Traumatic Stress,” Lawrence says. “I feel like I’m in Game of Thrones, running around going, ‘Winter is coming again!’ ”
