Jennifer Lawrence he really wanted to step into the shoes of the character he plays in Don’t Look Up, the director’s new disaster comedy Adam McKay, coming out at Christmas.
The actress stars opposite Leonardo Dicaprio, the two Academy Awards for the first time together on the big screen play a pair of astronomers who try in vain to warn humanity that a meteorite is heading for Earth to destroy it.
Kate, the character of JLaw, smokes weed to calm her nerves, and the actress admitted she did really high during the filming of the movie to better interpret it:
“I know what you’re going to say, and I wasn’t pregnant at the time“said Lawrence, during a post-screening Q&A in Los Angeles on Thursday night, according to Yahoo.
In September, Jennifer announced that she is expecting her first child with husband Cooke Maroney.
Adam McKay then explained during the Q&A that JLaw asked him to smoking weed before shooting a scene with Meryl Streep, who plays the president of the United States.
Jen asked me: “Come on, let me improvise a bit’? Well – I thought – actually that’s what I love to do with my actors! But no! You can’t smoke a joint!“, he laughed. “Then I turned to my script supervisor because I had an idea. But Jen disagreed. So in the end I let her go to her improvisation“.
“I wanted to do it because my character was getting high in the movie“added Jennifer and then recalled that, during the making of the film:
“All of me they made fun of on the set just because I was high. I was a real target“.
As a great professional, the 31-year-old was just practicing the Stanislavsky method most effectively. What we will see will certainly be a performance amazing!
