Jennifer Lawrence is known for her vivacious personality that has made movie fans laugh on talk shows and the red carpet. However, she is now set to star in No Hard Feelings, which will be one of the few comedies she has done straight up. This R-rated comedy is being produced by the Oscar-winning actress and directed by the director of the hit comedy.
Lawrence has been a fan favorite ever since she burst onto the scene in 2010 with her role in Winter’s Bone. Since then, she has become one of Hollywood’s most sought-after actresses, with roles in blockbuster franchises like The Hunger Games and X-Men. However, despite her success, Lawrence has always been known for her down-to-earth personality and sense of humor.
No Hard Feelings will be a departure from Lawrence’s usual dramatic roles, as it is a straight-up comedy. The film follows a group of friends who reunite after years apart and decide to take a trip together. However, things quickly go awry when they find themselves stranded in the middle of nowhere with no food or water.
The film is being produced by Lawrence’s production company, Excellent Cadaver, which she founded with her producing partner Justine Polsky. The company’s name is a reference to a line from the William Faulkner novel As I Lay Dying.
The director of No Hard Feelings is still unknown, but it has been reported that Lawrence is actively searching for a female director to helm the project. This is in line with Lawrence’s commitment to promoting gender equality in Hollywood.
Lawrence has been an outspoken advocate for gender equality in Hollywood, speaking out against the gender pay gap and calling for more opportunities for women both in front of and behind the camera. In 2015, she penned an essay for Lena Dunham’s Lenny Letter in which she discussed her own experiences with sexism in Hollywood.
“I’m over trying to find the ‘adorable’ way to state my opinion and still be likable! F*** that,” Lawrence wrote. “I don’t think I’ve ever worked for a man in charge who spent time contemplating what angle he should use to have his voice heard. It’s just heard.”
Lawrence’s commitment to promoting gender equality extends beyond her work in Hollywood. In 2018, she announced that she would be taking a year off from acting to focus on political activism, particularly on issues related to voting rights and corruption.
“I’m going to take the next year off,” Lawrence said in an interview with Entertainment Tonight. “I’m going to be working with this organization as a part of Represent.Us… trying to get young people engaged politically on a local level.”
Lawrence has also been vocal about her struggles with anxiety and depression, which she says have been exacerbated by the pressures of fame. In a 2018 interview with Oprah Winfrey, Lawrence discussed how therapy has helped her cope with these issues.
“I started to feel like I was losing myself… I didn’t feel like I had control over anything,” Lawrence said. “And the one thing I knew I could control was what I ate. And that was a very dangerous path for me… I was just all over the place. And then I went to therapy.”
No Hard Feelings is set to begin production later this year, and fans are eagerly anticipating Lawrence’s return to the big screen. With her talent, charisma, and commitment to promoting gender equality, Lawrence is sure to continue making waves in Hollywood for years to come.
