Academy Award winning actress Jennifer Lawrence took to Facebook to eliminate the false gossip surrounding her having fought with her director David O. Russell on her upcoming film ‘Joy’.
According to an eyewitness the director David O. Russell screamed at Jennifer Lawrence on the set of their upcoming film ‘Joy’. The eye witness told TMZ that a loud argument took place on Tuesday between the Russell and Lawrence and the director was shouting with profanity. The row was apparently so terrible one of the producers broke down into tears due to Russell’s screaming.
The movie studio Fox 2000 claims there was screaming involved during the filming of ‘Joy’ but it was all part of a method acting technique. The studio claims Lawrence was just being prepared for the next scene by the director Russell, in which the actress had to scream, there was screaming was heard on the set but there was no actual fight. Russell is already notorious for having had an epic row with Lily Tomlin on the set of the movie ‘I Heart Huckabees’.
Furthermore the Miramax handler Harvey Weinstein also showed up on the set of ‘Joy’ to say hi to Lawrence but was told to leave by Russell. Weinstein was apparently already informed by Russell the filming is taking place at maximum speed and his presence would be a disturbance. However Weinstein showed up unannounced and only made it until the make-up trailer on the set before he was informed to leave the area by Russell.
Amidst the rumors of animosity between Jennifer Lawrence and David O. Russell, Lawrence took to the social media platform to clear the air. In a rare post on Facebook Jennifer Lawrence addressed the reports of her feuding with Russell and claimed they were all false.
On Friday the Oscar winning actress wrote on Facebook that she doesn’t usually use the page but wanted to clarify some false news circulating for the last 24 hours about her and her director Russell. Lawrence wrote David O. Russell is apparently one of her closest friends and they have an incredible working association and she adores the man.
Lawrence further stressed Russell does not deserve the false accusations by the tabloids and the filming process is a great experience for her and she’s having a blast working on ‘Joy’. Lawrence effectively shattered all the false fighting stories being reported between her and the director and they seem to be friends according to Lawrence’s post.
Complete statement of Jennifer Lawrence that she posts on her Facebook is given below:
“Hey guys! It’s Jen! I know I don’t go on here a lot because I can barely work email but there’s been a terrible rumor going around the last 24 hours so I wanted to clear it up. David O. Russell is one of my closest friends and we have an amazing collaborative working relationship. I adore this man and he does not deserve this tabloid malarkey. This movie is going great and I’m having a blast making it!”
Another producer on ‘Joy’ Megan Ellison tweeted the only thing occurring on the set of ‘Joy’ is the extraordinary collaboration between Lawrence and Russell. Ellison further took the opportunity to dispel the gossip by claiming she is proud to be a part of such an amazing team.
