Jennifer Lawrence is one the most recognisable actresses on the planet right now, thanks to the huge success of movies such as The Hunger Games and X-Men: First Class. However, despite both movies being huge studio films, Jennifer claims that she still sees herself as an indie actress.
During an interview with Collider, Lawrence explained, “I still think of myself as an indie actress. The only actual studio movies I’ve done are The X-Men and The Hunger Games.” Jennifer also admitted that the thing about Indie movies is the fact that everybody involved in them cares so much about them.
She added, “There’s a feeling when you do indies, when you’re on your 20th hour into overtime and everyone else is too, and everybody is freezing cold, and the only reason that you’re there is because of this passion for this tiny little thing that you love and you believe in, but you don’t even know if anybody in the world is going to see it or care as much as you do.
Lawrence stated that this was the major difference between Indie movies and studio films, although she can’t complain about the perks of the bigger movies, “You know that 100 people have the same feeling about this tiny little thing, and you can’t get that on a studio film. You can get different feelings from better food and bigger trailers, though,” she continued.
While Jennifer Lawrence does consider herself as an indie actress, she does have two very big movies coming up, with The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, which is set to be released on November 22 in both the US and the UK, as well as X-Men: Days of Future Past, which will hit the big screen on July 18, 2014 in the US and UK.
