Jennifer Lawrence is ready for her movie return after time away to be with her family after becoming the mother of her first child Cy with her husband Cooke Maroney.

After achieving superstar fame in the early 2010s with a starring role in “The Hunger Games” franchise and an Oscar-winning performance in “Silver Linings Playbook,” Lawrence’s career stumbled slightly. In an interview for The New York Timess about “Causeway”, a feature film that will hit the Apple TV+ screen on November 4, Lawrence recalled how her good friend Adele tried to talk her out of the movie considered by many to be the lowest point of his career: “Passengers,” the 2016 sci-fi drama in which he co-starred with Chris Pratt.

“Adele told me not to do it!” Lawrence told the newspaper. “She said: ‘I feel like space movies are the new vampire movies.’”

“I should have listened to her,” acknowledged the 32-year-old actress.

The movie of Lawrence and Pratt as travelers on a spaceship who wake up from hibernation long before their expected arrival was marketed as a romance between two of the biggest stars in Hollywood at the time, but it ended up being “a laughable display of two hours of sci-fi Stockholm Syndrome,” as EW reviewer Chris Nashawaty put it. The production did not do much better, with the terrible criticism it received on the portal of Rotten Tomatoes.

Months after “Passengers” was released, Pratt and producer Neal Moritz continued to defend it, with Pratt saying that criticism of the film “really caught off guard” and that he thought the final product was “very good”.

Lawrence, however, is not beating around the bush. Speaking of the projects that didn’t make it to fans or critics, he said, “I was like, who said this was a good movie?'” During that period of her career, she said, she began to feel “more like a celebrity than an actress, cut off from my creativity, my imagination.” If only I had listened to Adele!”

In an interview for fashion in September, Lawrence criticized the wage gap in Hollywood: “I get paid less for having a vagina.” In addition, the actress revealed that she suffered two miscarriages before giving birth to her son in February of this year and that she is fighting with her family for being Republicans.

The Oscar winner said she got pregnant at age 20 and “had a miscarriage alone in Montreal.” She became pregnant again while filming Adam McKay’s Netflix comedy “Don’t Look Up” and suffered a second miscarriage.

Lawrence told the publication about the miscarriages she suffered while arguing for the Roe v. Wade, the landmark abortion ruling that struck down the United States Supreme Court.

The actress expressed her outrage that young women across the country now face limited options. “I had a great pregnancy. But every second of my life was different. And sometimes I thought: what if they forced me to do this?

Lawrence processed her family drama in therapy.

“I have worked very hard in the last five years to forgive my dad and my family and try to understand: they are different.”, he explained. “I’ve tried to get over it and I really can’t. I can no longer deal with people who are not political. Live in the United States. You have to be political. It’s too terrible. Politics is killing people.”

“It’s too personal to a woman’s existence to see white men discuss the womb when they can’t find a clitoris,” she said.

Lawrence added: “I don’t want to put my family down, but I know a lot of people are in a similar position with their families. How can you raise a daughter from birth and believe that she doesn’t deserve equality? How?”.

Inequality is something Lawrence has had to deal with in Hollywood, where she has often been paid less than her male co-stars.

The actress earned much less than her male co-stars in “American Hustle,” while in 2021 she received $5 million less than Leonardo DiCaprio in “Don’t Look Up.”

Lawrence believes that all actors are often overpaid, but that doesn’t make the pay gap any less frustrating. “It doesn’t matter how much you do. Aren’t they going to pay me as much as that guy, for my vagina?

She is not a fanatic nor does she fully understand the appeal of social media. “Let no one look for me there because I will never be there. I’m not good with technology and phones. I hardly understand how emails work, so the idea of ​​having social networks is something that does not cross my mind”, he assured then. But last year she changed her mind and decided to enter that unknown space for her. However, when she decides to appear on her Twitter profile, it is not to promote herself but for reasons such as the complaint of the murder of Breonna Taylor, who died as a victim of a police attack in Louisville in March 2020 without the agents having been arrested.

Filming and producing “Causeway,” the story of a war veteran living with PTSD while recovering from a brain injury, was a change of pace for Lawrence. She was drawn to the improvised pace of the narrative, adding: “I like a fast-paced Marvel movie. But I miss the slow melody of a character-driven story.”. But the political and personal atmosphere resulted in “the hardest shooting” of Lawrence’s life.

“I worked very hard. It was the hardest shoot of my life. It was three years,” Lawrence said. “I hope people see it. But if not, we’re all going to die anyway, so who cares.”
