When I first saw the trailer to Jennifer Lawrence's new comedy 'No Hard Feelings' I began to wonder how much money she could have possibly been paid to sign onto the project. Silver Linings Playbook, all The Hunger Games movies, X-Men, to this? Quite the left turn. While I don't usually care for the Tomatometer, the audience score for Rotten generally gives me a good idea if I want to see a comedy or not. Seems like my gut was wrong and that R Rated raunchy sex comedies were made for the actress.
The movie follows a bat shit crazy Lawrence as she's offered a car in exchange to date a family's son so he can branch out into the world. Little spoiler alert but the big scene that's been making waves is Lawrence going skinny dipping before she has to fight off a group of teenagers trying to steal her stuff on the beach. She takes them on fully nude for quite a bit of time. The clip should be inducted into the movie HOF as far as I'm concerned. You can view that here before continuing.
When asked about the scene she basically said it was a no brainer.
“Everyone in my life and my team is doing the right thing and going, ‘Are you sure? Are you sure? Are you sure?’ ” Lawrence explained.
She joked: “I didn’t even have a second thought. It was hilarious to me.” The beach scene took one day to film, and the actors went through “a lot of rehearsal” to prepare, she went on.
Honestly, you gotta appreciate that kind of mentality from her. I mean most of the world by now has seen her unclothed if they wanted thanks to the Fappening. I have always liked the way she handled the whole having all your nudes leaked to the public debacle.
I started to write an apology, but I don't have anything to say I'm sorry for. I was in a loving, healthy, great relationship for four years. It was long distance, and either your boyfriend is going to look at porn or he's going to look at you.” -Vanity Fair
For her it obviously sucked a ton and made her rightfully angry, but to rationalize it like that helps moving forward. Now she's gonna capitalize on it on her terms. It started with Red Sparrow and has move onto giving someone a German suplex butt ass naked on a beach. Well done.
When I say the scene is something, I mean it. I imagine some of you have your opinions of Lawrence based on some of her quotes and interviews, but this lad appreciates her. If sex comedies are her new thing I will be there.
P.S. Fuck this Andrew Barth Feldman guy
The “Silver Linings Playbook” actress then quipped: “Even when I put my T-shirt over your head and motorboated you? You felt safe?”
“I felt it was an exclusively sterile and professional environment,” the “Dear Evan Hansen” star said
