JLaw Says Leo and Timothée "Drove Me Crazy" on Set
| LAST UPDATE 12/08/2021
Jennifer Lawrence is back and better than ever. The expectant mama has made a big return after a Hollywood hiatus: not only is she now sporting a beautiful baby bump, but JLaw is also about to hit the big screen alongside some of the biggest stars in Hollywood. But, as she put it, some of them are very "annoying." Here are all of the funny details.
Lawrence sat down with Stephen Colbert on The Late Show to discuss all things Don't Look Up, the doomsday comedy directed by Adam McKay and starring Jennifer Lawrence (obviously), Leonardo DiCaprio, Timothée Chalamet, Meryl Streep, Jonah Hill, Tyler Perry, and Cate Blanchett. And two of those people got on the Silver Linings Playbook actress's nerves, to put it mildly.
"It was the most annoying day of my life; I'll tell you that," Jennifer confessed of when she filmed a car scene with DiCaprio and Chalamet. "They drove me crazy that day. I don't know what it was. Timothée was just excited to be out of the house; I think it was his first scene. And Leo had picked the song that was playing in the car and was just like, 'You know, this song is about blah, blah, blah.'"
"It was hell," Lawrence added. "Well, Timothée, I was so excited; he's such a talented actor. But in a two-shot, you know, I'm 31 and, I mean, I wasn't this fat, but I'm fatter than Timothée Chalamet. That was harrowing. It's harrowing to see yourself... Just us in those two-shots, it's like, 'Who's that? Your coach?'"
"I don't know. I just remember being in absolute misery that day," Jennifer said before adding, "But they're very nice." We can rest assured that the actress shared her misery from that day on set all in good fun - she has often spoken about what a joy it was to work alongside such talented A-listers.
And, despite being a total Hollywood icon herself, Jennifer told Colbert that "of course" she was starstruck by her coworkers. "I was like, 'Don't worry about it; you don't have to talk to me!' But yeah, that was amazing," JLaw said.
