Jennifer Lawrence has described the ‘hell’ of working with a-list co-stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Timothée Chalamet on the upcoming Netflix film Don’t Look Up.
Speaking on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert (via the New York Post), Jennifer Lawrence revealed that Leonardo DiCaprio and Timothée Chalamet “drove me crazy” while filming a scene in a car together.
“I don’t know what it was… Timothée was just excited to be out of the house [after the pandemic lockdown]. I think it was, like, his first scene,” she said.
She continued: “And Leo had picked the song that was playing in the car and was just, like, ‘You know, this song was about, you know, blah, blah, blah.’ ”
“I just remember being in absolute misery that day. It was hell.”
However, despite her frustrations with the pair, Lawrence admitted it was “cool” to shoot with DiCaprio, Chalamet and other famous co-stars including Meryl Streep, Jonah Hill, Tyler Perry and Chris Evans.
Elsewhere in the interview, Lawrence opened up about taking time away from the spotlight, saying: “I think the things I learned are so deep and profound … that I don’t want to tell you…I mean, it was really nice.”
She continued: “I’ve always found comfort in a schedule and doing something and being somewhere, and just kind of the comfort of being on set where the world is one thing and very organized.”
“I think coming out of The Hunger Games and all of that, it was nice. I took a break and nobody really cared and it was quiet… I got to feel like I could become a part of the world again without fanfare. Literal fanfare.”
