Jennifer Lawrence Has "Out of Body" Experience at Premiere
| LAST UPDATE 12/07/2021
After a hiatus from Hollywood, sweetheart Jennifer Lawrence is back in the spotlight. The starlet hit the red carpet looking gorgeous in a floor-length gown and - her best accessory yet - a huge baby bump. Here's everything to know about JLaw's return.
New York City was filled with some of the who's-who of Hollywood on December 5 for the premiere of Don't Look Up. The comedic doomsday film stars some huge A-listers alongside Jennifer Lawrence: Leonardo DiCaprio, Meryl Streep, and Jonah Hill are all part of the stellar cast. And despite once being a regular at all of the big premieres and red carpet events, the mom-to-be admitted coming back into the limelight was a bit overwhelming.
"I don't know. It's like, so... I feel like kind of out of body. I don't think I'm like, I'm like not here if that makes sense. Yeah. I'm just not processing," JLaw told E! News after she was asked how it felt to be back. The actress also explained what it was about Don't Look Up that motivated her to take the job. Spoiler alert: it has a lot to do with her passion for climate change awareness.
"I just don't think that there's ever been something so important to make a film about," Lawrence shared. "How many years have we spent just pulling our hair out, you know, watching the way the world and our government react to the truth about this climate crisis. And finally, there was something that totally, you know, could kind of breakthrough to all of us and unite us after so, so long of being divided. So just all of it was so exciting."
And, of course, the chance to work with some of the biggest names in film caught her attention, too. "I've always wanted to work with [director] Adam Mckay. So yeah, it was a no-brainer," Jennifer admitted. And she only had good words to say about her co-stars, as well. "[Leonardo DiCaprio] is the best," the Silver Linings Playbook star gushed. "He's the greatest. He's such an amazing actor and such a professional, which I could learn a lot from."
"It was great," she said of their time filming before explaining that due to pandemic regulations and on-set safety, the crew spent a lot of quality time. "All of us got very close because we had no choice. We were the only people we could see for months," Jennifer detailed.
You can catch Don't Look Up in select theaters come December 10. Or have a hilarious Netflix and chill sesh after its premiere on the streaming site on December 24.
