It’s hard to tell exactly what the new Jennifer Lawrence movie “Mother!” is about, but it’s got a strong horror vibe, and it looks pretty intense. It’s by Darren Aronofsky, who wrote and directed “Black Swan.”
In a new “Vogue” profile, Jennifer says she had to, “go to a darker place than I’ve ever been in my life” for her performance, and one time she hyperventilated and dislocated a rib.
She says, “I ended up getting on oxygen. I have oxygen tubes in my nostrils, and Darren’s like, ‘It was out of focus; we’ve got to do it again.’ And I was just like, ‘Go [eff] yourself.'”
It was such a rough shoot for Jennifer that the crew set up a “Kardashian Tent” she could go to in order to decompress.
She says, “It was a tent that had pictures of the Kardashians and ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’ playing on a loop and gumballs. My happy place.”
Even though Darren put her through hell, you’ve probably heard that they’re DATING now. They started after the movie was finished, but there was a connection during the shoot…at least on her end.
“We had energy. I had energy for him. I don’t know how he felt about me.” She says he’s brilliant and an amazing father to his son from his relationship with Rachel Weisz, and he doesn’t brag about Harvard.
She says, “I normally don’t like Harvard people, because they can’t go two minutes without mentioning that they went to Harvard. He’s not like that.”
There’s only one problem: He doesn’t understand her obsession with reality TV. “He just finds it so vastly disappointing.”
One last, unrelated note: Jennifer’s BFF Amy Schumer gave a quote for this article, and it’s classic.
She said, “Jen is funny like a comic. She understands the rhythm of a joke and how to play both the straight man and the idiot. She has one of the darkest senses of humor I’ve ever encountered and it’s delightful. My only problem with her is that she’s fat.”
