The actress, who starts filming the next instalment of the hit movie franchise today, had already tasted success having appeared in X-Men: First Class and Winter’s Bone (which earned her an Academy Awards nomination) but revealed it was her mum that persuaded her to take on the big budget film.
‘She was like, “You’re being a hypocrite, because you always say you don’t care about the size of the movies.” Because when I was doing indies, everybody was always like, “Why don’t you ever do a studio?” I’d say, “Because I don’t care about the size of the movie. I care about the story,” Lawrence said.
‘And my mom was like, “Now you have a story you like, and you’re not going to do it because of the size.”‘
She added: ‘The truth was, in the bottom of my heart, I wanted to do it. I wanted to play this character. I was scared of the aftermath, but you can’t say no to things because you’re scared.
