The David O. Russell movie marks the third collaboration between the director, Lawrence and Cooper
Jennifer Lawrence will continue to make movies with David O. Russell until the day the director dies, she said in a Q&A following a screening of “Joy” on Saturday night. The relationship between the director and the actress, she added with a grin, warranted a pair of adjectives: “sweet” and “fucked up.”
Lawrence plays the title role in “Joy,” the third collaboration between her and Russell, after “Silver Linings Playbook” (for which she won an Oscar) and “American Hustle.” The new movie is one of the last big 2015 awards hopefuls to be unveiled for the press and for guild voters, and its first significant Los Angeles and New York screenings took place simultaneously on Saturday. A Q&A from New York was broadcast to the theater on the Fox lot in L.A.
In the Q&A, Lawrence was asked what her first reaction was when Russell approached her about the movie, which is based on the story of inventor Joy Mangano, a divorced mother of two who designed the Miracle Mop and faced numerous obstacles on the way to becoming a hugely successful businesswoman.
