Actress Jennifer Lawrence has read many scripts during her acting career, deciding which projects to agree to take on and which ones she would rather skip. However, when Darren Aronofsky asked her about starring in his new movie mother!, Jennifer agreed to take on the role before she had even seen the script, and she has no confirmed that she thought Darren had some sort of psychological issues, when she did finally read his script for the film.
Lawrence was speaking about the mother! script while at the Toronto International Film Festival, when she explained, "It was an instant yes before I even read anything. He told me his ideas and I thought they were brilliant and unique and challenging. I've been a fan of his for years -- I think he's bold and brave, and I think I said brilliant."
The actress then went on to add, "But I've been a fan, so once he told me the ideas floating around in his head I said yes. Then I got a script and when I read it I threw it across the room and told him he had severe psychological problems. But it's a masterpiece."
While we have Jennifer Lawrence leading the way in mother!, the rest of the cast includes some hugely impressive names including the likes of Michelle Pgeiffer, Ed Harris, Javier Bardem, and Domhnall Gleeson, to name just a few. We have yet to see mother! but from the material that has been teased, we cannot wait to head off to the theatre and give this a watch.
