Directed by Darren Aronofsky, this psychological thriller stars Jennifer Lawrence, Javier Bardem, Ed Harris and Michelle Pfeiffer. Having noticeably kept their distance on the red carpet, the duo were suddenly arm in arm at the NY screening and happy to.
Where Aronofsky's previous movies allowed him to be the writer-director on the outside looking in at junkies, an aging athlete and a dancer on the verge of a meltdown, "mother!" has him looking inward, as he targets artists and their addiction to fame. The 27-year-old kept a noticeable distance from the 48-year-old, but they finally chose to come together and pose for a few snaps while walking the red carpet at the NY screening.
Jennifer Lawrence in Dior with Darren Aronofsky at "Mother!" premiere. She even joked about taking up pottery. "I've been a fan of his for years. Now I'm like...", she said, putting on a jokingly horrified expression. Jennifer Lawrence and Darren Aronofsky, coupled to the city, are launched in the promotional marathon of Mother!, the new film by the director of Black Swan, in which plays the Oscar-winning actress, heroine of Hunger Games.
Lawrence rushed home and locked herself inside to try and process the change in her life. It was supposedly a horror film, but the only thing terrible about it was that I had to stay for the entire movie.
At 27, Lawrence - who won an Academy Award at 22 (and has been nominated for three others) - is one of Hollywood's most sought after actors. The actress says she works out so she doesn't have to restrict her diet.
"I think we were basically - whatever it is - 15 years too early", Aronofsky sighed to website First Showing.
"He told me his ideas and I thought that they were just brilliant and unique and challenging. I don't know how he felt about me". Did you hear that, how much they love me?' So I don't put any stock in it.
