Rumor has it that Adele is not only a great singer, but also great at career advice. That is, at least, according to Jennifer Lawrence.
In an interview with the New York Times published Wednesday, the Oscar-winning actress reflected on her career and some sage advice the superstar singer once gave her that, in retrospect, she wishes she had heeded.
Regarding her 2016 film “Passengers,” which starred Chris Pratt and stands as one of the least acclaimed films of her decorated career, Lawrence said, “Adele he said not to! She said, ‘I feel like space movies are the new vampire movies’. I should have listened to her.”
“Passengers” tells the story of the journey of two interstellar travelers who wake up from hyperperson aboard a ship 90 years earlier than expected and are forced to live their lives alone, unlike everyone else, who they will wake up when they reach their intended destination.
In addition to receiving only a 30% critic score on Rotten Tomatoes, ranking among its five worst-reviewed films on the site, “Passengers” raised some pretty difficult issues with consent, as Pratt’s character actually deliberately opens his companion’s dream, out of loneliness and frustration with his situation.
In this week’s interview, Lawrence cites “Passengers” as one of the films in her post-Hunger Games career that ended up being the best decision, ultimately leading her to walk away from out of focus to worry that she was overexposed. to their fan base.
“I said, ‘Oh no, you’re here because I’m here, and I’m here because you’re here.’ Wait, who decided this was a good movie?’” the actress told the Times.
After last appearing in the big-budget franchise film “X-Men: Dark Phoenix” in 2019, Lawrence starred in last year’s Oscar-nominated dark comedy “Don’t Look Up” alongside Leonardo DiCaprio and Meryl Streep.
He will next appear in “Causeway,” which airs this week on Apple TV+, portraying an Afghanistan war veteran who returns home from a traumatic brain injury and tries to reintegrate into everyday life.
