Jennifer Lawrence revealed that fellow A-lister Adele warned her not to star in the sci-fi film Passengers.
The 32-year-old actress portrayed Aurora Lane opposite Chris Pratt in The Imitation Game director Morten Tyldum’s 2016 film.
Speaking to the New York Times, Lawrence said she realized she made the wrong choice with the film, which was relatively poorly received, and misled the fan base she had built up from starring in the Hunger Games franchise.
He said, “I was like, ‘Oh no, you guys are here because I’m here, and I’m here because you’re here. Wait, who decided this was a good movie? ‘”
The actress, whose fame skyrocketed after playing Katniss Everdeen in dystopian adventure films, added: “Adele told me not to!
“He used to say to me, ‘I feel like space movies are the new vampire movies.’ I should have listened to it. “
The two women are reportedly good friends, with Adele, 34, who previously told Rolling Stone magazine that Lawrence, among a small number of other famous friends, “humanized” her after she moved into. a house near Lawrence’s in Beverly Hills.
Passengers see Lawrence and Pratt, 43, as two passengers on an interstellar spaceship carrying thousands of people to a colony 60 light-years from Earth.
The two form the central plot when awakened from their induced lethargy 90 years early.
Lawrence previously cited passengers as a badly judged career move and in 2019 he took a step back from the limelight and a break from acting.
Earlier this month, the star said she felt she had become a “commodity” following the success of the Hunger Games and her Oscar win.
Speaking at the BFI London Film Festival, Lawrence described her Oscar for Best Actress for the Silver Linings Playbook in 2012 as “extremely overwhelming”, adding: “I think I’ve lost my sense of control … between the Hunger Games and winning the I think Oscar has become such a commodity that I felt like every decision was a big, big group decision because I had no idea what a big movie star would do.
“I think now and I think of those following years, a loss of control and a reaction to trying to get him back.
“I’m so glad it stopped … I’ve made some big changes and finally got the voice back in my head and now it feels personal again for the first time in a long time.”
Lawrence returned to the screens last year in Adam McKay’s Netflix film Don’t Look Up, as part of a stellar cast including Leonardo DiCaprio, Meryl Streep and Timothee Chalamet.
Lawrence will soon be seen in Causeway, directed by Lila Neugebauer, in which she plays a soldier struggling to adjust to his life after returning home to New Orleans.
The film will be released on Apple TV + on November 4.
