Her meteoric rise caused Jennifer Lawrence to lose control
At the age of 20, actress Jennifer Lawrence broke through in Hollywood and a little later she won an Oscar. However, the sudden fame led to her “loss of control”, as she now confessed.
The breakthrough with the movie “Winter’s Bone”, the immense success of the series “Hunger Games” and finally winning an Oscar at the age of 22: Jennifer Lawrence did not handle her meteoric rise easily. “I think I lost control. Between ‘The Hunger Games’ and my Oscar win, I kind of became a commodity, so I felt like every decision was a group decision. Looking back now, I can’t remember the years that followed, it was just a loss of control,” the actress said on the sidelines of the London Film Festival, according to Variety.
Lawrence believes she owes her tenacity and confidence to being able to assert herself as a young actress in Hollywood. Both were like a “compass” to her. She now feels that she has regained her identity. “It feels personal for the first time in a long time,” said the 32-year-old.
Jennifer Lawrence Becomes a Soldier for New Movie
The interview took place as part of the promotion for her new film “Causeway”. Lawrence plays Lynsey, a soldier who suffers a traumatic brain injury after serving in Afghanistan and struggles to adjust to her civilian life in the US. Not only is Lawrence on board as the lead actress, she is also part of the film’s production team.
Work on “Causeway” started in 2019, but was halted for a long time due to the corona pandemic. Meanwhile, Lawrence married her now-husband Cooke Maroney and gave birth to their first child, son Cy, in early 2022. Meanwhile, Causeway’s team continued to refine the film’s script. From November 4, 2022, the comic can be seen in some cinemas and on Apple TV+.
