“Best Actress Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence was the talk of the town at Sunday night’s awards after her bumpy walk to the stage and her candid acceptance speech made headlines. But she forgot to thank two people critical to the making of Silver Linings Playbook — director David O. Russell and producer Harvey Weinstein. Below, she shares her thanks to them in a statement released to EW:”
In the whirlwind of last night, I was remiss to thank two incredibly important people to this film and in my life.
David O. Russell: Thank you for the most incredible experience of my life. Thank you for your genius, for your guidance, for teaching me things about myself and nurturing me to be a better actor. You have so much passion and such a bleeding heart, you believe not only in your films but what your films can do for people and that is the most important thing that I have learned from you.
Harvey Weinstein: You championed this movie and its story from early days. Your passion and unyielding support gave this film the opportunity to thrive and touch so many people.
Thank you to both. I will never be able to forgive myself for such a brain fart but I hope that you both can. Obviously it was not on purpose, I couldn’t remember what I had already said and my mind went completely blank–your brain does funny things during the most overwhelming moment of your life!

When David O. Russell likes an actor, he keeps him or her close. Before their relationship reportedly fell apart, his go-to star seemed to be Mark Wahlberg, who led Three Kings, I Heart Huckabees and The Fighter for the director. Now it looks as though the director has turned to his starring duo of Silver Linings Playbook.
The multiple Oscar-nominated film will likely pick up a few awards come the end of the month, but O. Russell is already putting the finishing touches on the ensemble for his next film and we’ve now got another addition. Alongside Christian Bale, Amy Adam, Jeremy Renner, Louis C.K. and Bradley Cooper, Deadline reports that Playbook‘s Jennifer Lawrence has joined the ensemble.
Set in the 1970s and following an FBI sting operation, Lawrence has taken the role of Bale’s wife in the project. O. Russell has a knack for finding the perfect combination of actors and this one is shaping up to be his finest line-up yet. Read this synopsis, coming from Eric Warren Singer‘s script, below:
The Untitled David O. Russell Project is based on the true story of a notorious financial con artist (Bale) and his mistress/partner in crime (Adams), who were forced to work with an out of control federal agent (Cooper) to turn the tables on other con artists, mobsters, and politicians. At the epicenter of the entire tale, is the passionate and volatile leader of the New Jersey state assembly (Renner) who is also the local hero and mayor of impoverished Camden.
Expect a late 2013 release for what will likely be another major awards contender for Russell.
Jennifer is set to present an award at the Oscars on February 24th. Jennifer is also nominated for Best Actress for her role in Silver Linings Playbook.
Jen attended the EE British Academy Film Awards last sunday, here are pictures:
Jennifer has been busy this year with so many nominations and awards shows. Here are the events from 2013:
Hello everyone! My name is Annie and I’m the new owner of Jennifer Lawrence Network. I’m currently updating the site and launching a brand new gallery.
Gallery has been almost fully updated, many older lower quality have been replace with high quality. Many magazines and new photoshoots also. Enjoy!
n the Monday before Thanksgiving, Jennifer Lawrence was standing nearly naked in a hotel room in Beverly Hills. “I have no modesty left,” she said as she decided what to wear for an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, followed by a taping of The Tonight Show, and in the evening, the Los Angeles premiere of her latest film, Silver Linings Playbook. She had already been to two photo shoots that day, and on one of them, a hairstylist wove dreadlocks into her long, naturally blonde hair, which had been dyed brown for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, the second installment of the grimly futuristic trilogy.
The first Hunger Games, which came out in 2012, grossed almost $700 million worldwide and made Lawrence, who plays the intrepid teenage warrior Katniss Everdeen, an international star. Between chapters 1 and 2, she filmed Silver Linings, a dark romantic comedy. “I like that my character knows that she’s crazy—and accepts it,” Lawrence told me. “She says, ‘Keep being weird! Just be proud of it.’ ”
Although she’s not remotely cuckoo, Lawrence, 22, is stubbornly, wonderfully true to herself, and that self is not constrained by Hollywood’s usual rules of conformity. For instance, while she is a newly named face of Christian Dior, Lawrence loves to eat and is, as she bluntly puts it, “fat, by Hollywood’s standards.” And even though her fame has escalated rapidly, Lawrence still lives in the modest condo in Santa Monica she moved into in 2006, when she was 16 and playing the rebellious teenage daughter on the TBS series The Bill Engvall Show. Despite an Oscar nomination for 2010’s very serious Winter’s Bone, Lawrence can still quote Dumb and Dumber from beginning to end. She speaks her mind and is not guarded or conventional. When I asked her what superpower she would want to have, Lawrence said, “It would be horrible to read people’s thoughts. I always know when I’m being lied to, and that drives me nuts.”
Perhaps that’s the key to Lawrence’s honesty: She doesn’t want to betray her own need for the truth. “I don’t think I’m particularly brave or bold or different from anyone else,” Lawrence insisted. “I just think this is an easier way to be.” Usually, this outsize a personality is hard to subsume into a role, but Lawrence disappears into her characters. In Silver Linings, she plays a widow who has Goth tendencies, with no shred of the actress’s real-life bounding friendliness. “I am like the movie in one way: I’m superstitious,” she said, slipping into a fitted black and white tweed Dior dress. “Whenever it’s 11:11, I make all of the people around me wish that my boyfriend [the actor Nicholas Hoult] not get killed in a motorbike accident. He just bought a motorbike, and I think my ritual will keep him alive. The other night, at 11:11 p.m., I told an entire bar to say, ‘Nick will not die in a motorbike accident.’ And they did it.” I asked her if she repeated this ritual at 11:11 a.m. too. “I don’t wake up for it!” Lawrence exclaimed. “God, I hardly ever wake up before 11. I’m an artist! I need at least 18 hours a night, with catnaps.” Lawrence laughed and picked up her bag to leave for Ellen. “I’m not that crazy,” she said, half-joking. “But I am an artist.”
