Movies of the week
When an actress, who maintains long periods of silence about her private matters lets go of her inhibitions, saliva starts dripping from the wide-open mouth of the media.
Jennifer Lawrence, the usually reserved and quiet ‘House At The End Of The Street actress’, recently spilled beans about her professional life.
Statutory warning: to miss a word from her would be denying the tinsel town addict in you, a chance for instant gratification.
In Silver Lining Playbook, she brings alive the character of an eccentric widow. This gives birth to the doubt whether she’s over gorgeous and young to portray a clumsy, wrinkled character.
Lawrence admits that it was not like she was immediately picked for the role; she had to come out trumps in a rigorous screen test. She knew that it was an intricate role, but she didn’t let the skepticism injure her confidence. The screen siren adds that the dance sequence that accompanies the climax of the movie wasn’t a child’s play for her, since she’s blessed with two left feet.
As far as her talents are concerned, she reveals she hardly has any, whether it’s cooking, dusting or sewing clothes, she’s a disappointment at each. At the same time, she prizes the mastery acquired in shooting bow and arrow in Hunger Games. She understands the fact the skill is no use in the current era.
Now a trivia you cannot afford to miss. To bring alive her character in X-Men movie, she had all her body painted in blue, and she had to walk in the same condition around scores of men. Seeing the silver lining among the dark clouds, she told that the X-men role helped her to become less self-conscious. It took as long as eight hours to shape-up her character with extreme body-painting.
