Lawrence’s real home “broke” while she was away—a madcap story involving crystals and . “And I was like, ‘Please get rid of these; I don’t want people to come over here and think I’m a crystal person.’ ”“But everyone told me, ‘You can’t do that. You have to have the crystal lady who put them in move them. Lawrence praises Grande’s take as “spot-fucking-on”—even if she takes issue with the notion that she’s ever described herself as a “regular person.”“That’s what other people have said,” she says.
“To get it from the biggest actors in the world is really, really hard.
It was an amazing luxury to have that much time.”Lawrence admits she wasn’t a rehearsal person before making but says that the process made her the most “in tune” she’s ever been with a character. She’s truly committed to go as far as needed.”“I hate talking about acting because it’s so hard to talk about it without sounding like a douche,” Lawrence says in her ever-Lawrence way. I didn’t know if I’d be able to come out OK.”One moment during filming got so intense, Lawrence says, that she hyperventilated and dislocated a rib. “I have oxygen tubes in my nostrils, and Darren’s like, ‘It was out of focus; we’ve got to do it again.’ And I was just like, ‘Go fuck yourself.’ ”Wanting to protect Lawrence’s well-being amid that darkness, some of the crew assembled a “Kardashian tent” for the actress off set—a refuge where she could get away from the work and decompress with her chatty friends from reality TV.
But if asked, Lawrence will give a respectably straight answer on, say, her 2016 sci-fi film , which was a box-office success despite a thumping from critics—she’s proud of it but agrees with those who suggested the film would have benefited from a reedit and started with her character waking up.
“I’m disappointed in myself that I didn’t spot it,” she says. There was just stuff that I wished I’d looked into deeper before jumping on.”Then there’s Lawrence’s pithy reaction to her sole celebrity dustup (if you can call it a dustup) from the past year, when she was videotaped—somebody alert Interpol—pole dancing at a birthday party in Vienna, Austria. I’m on the phone with my lawyers, and everybody’s like, ‘Is there anything we need to know before it comes out?
I don’t know how he felt about me.”We’ve finished our hour in sensory-deprivation tanks and have stopped for a cup of coffee up the street.
