It seems as if every interview with Jennifer Lawrence recently seems to be focused on her size – and although this interview with the New York Times covers other ground, one of the central topics does remain her weight.
Since the interview is about her role in the upcoming ‘Silver Linings Playbook’, she talks about the dance sequences she had to learn for her role in the movie, saying, “When I dance, I look like I’m a dad at a prom. I never grasped my limbs. Ever since puberty I’ve just kind of felt like we don’t understand each other.”
She also adds that since she went into the shooting for this after finishing the ‘Hunger Games’, she was asked by David O’ Russell, the director of Silver Linings, to gain weight for the role. She says, “I was like, ‘Hell, yeah!’ That never happens in a movie.”
Lawrence also talks about the paparazzi attention that has hit since the Hunger Games became a worldwide phenomenon, and says, “It gets overwhelming, where I’ll cry in my car, but not to the point where I don’t want to do what I’m doing.” She adds that despite that, it remains something she remains fiercely proud of, saying, “It’s also something that I’m proud of. Like, I don’t get annoyed when the guy at the bar says, ‘May the odds be ever in your favor.”
