Jennifer Lawrence is best known for her role in The Hunger Games as Katniss Everdeen. Now she is playing a new role in the movie Silver Linings Playbook. The star recently spoke out about how she was excited she got to actually gain weight for this role instead of losing it.
According to Gossip Cop, Jennifer has been called obese in the press, but this is really not the case. She has recently said that she would not lose weight for a role, but now she is happy that she was allowed to gain weight for one. Many actresses would not want to do that to their body.
Director David O. Russell asked Jennifer to gain weight for her role on Silver Linings Playbook. In this movie, she plays a sex-addicted widow. She said that being asked to gain weight never happens and she was excited about it.
She also had to do a dance number in the film and that didn't go as well. Fans have seen her shoot a bow like a champ, but dancing doesn't sound like it is her talent.
Are you glad to see that Jennifer Lawrence is a normal guy? It is inspiring to see someone normal who would rather gain a bit of weight than lose it. This role should be an exciting one to watch her play.
