The 27-year-old Oscar-winning actress and four-time nominee will star in the upcoming movie Burial Rites, which will be directed by the Call Me By Your Name filmmaker.
Burial Rites is based on Hannah Kent‘s novel and follows “Agnes Magnusdottir (Lawrence), the last woman to be publicly executed in Iceland in 1830.” She was executed for killing two men and setting their home on fire.
“Luca is a rare talent. His movies capture an exquisite sense of place inextricably linked to the emotional state of the complex characters he creates,” TriStar president Hannah Minghella said in a statement to Variety. “I can’t imagine a more thrilling partnership than Luca and Jennifer coming together to bring Agnes’ beautiful and tragic story to life.”

Here’s what the 27-year-old actress had to share with the mag – she was interviewed by Oprah Winfrey:
On Harvey Weinstein: “We’ve all worked with him, but everybody needed a moment. Just speaking for myself, I had known him since I was 20, and he had only ever been nice to me — except for the moments that he wasn’t, and then I called him an asshole, and we moved on. He was paternal to me. So I needed a moment to process everything because I thought I knew this guy, and then he’s being accused of rape. We all knew he was a dog, we knew that he was a…tough guy, a brute, a tough guy to negotiate with. I didn’t know that he was a rapist. And it’s so widespread, the abuse, from so many different people — it’s directors, it’s producers — that I think everybody needed to [process it]. Everybody needs to deal with this in their own way; everybody needs to heal.”
On if she wants to meet Trump: “I think so. I’ve got a pretty good speech. And it ends with a martini to the face. (Laughter.) I have something to say for all of them. I watch different characters on the news, and I’m like, ‘You just wait.’”
On three people she’d like to have dinner with: “Scott Disick [from Keeping Up With the Kardashians], Luann from Real Housewives of New York, Bethenny Frankel. And I’m not proud of that, but that’s what comes from my heart.”

If you see Jennifer Lawrence walking down the street or eating in a restaurant, it’s probably not a great idea to approach her.
The 27-year-old Oscar-winning actress has always been candid about how she is not an approachable person and now she’s opening up to Adam Sandler in her Variety‘s “Actors on Actors” interview, presented by Google Home.
“Once I enter a public place, I become incredibly rude. I turn into a huge a–hole,” Jennifer said. “That’s my only way of defending myself.” She added that she’ll wag her finger at someone if they approach her table at a restaurant and she’ll say “no” if they ask for a selfie.
“You know what sometimes I do? I go, ‘It’s my day off.’ Like, if it’s Sunday, I’m like, ‘It’s Sunday, I’m not working today,’” she added.
Adam said that when an older fans approach him, he’ll tell them they don’t want a picture with him.
“They go, ‘Hey Adam, could I get a picture?’ And I always say, ‘You don’t want that, man.’ And the guy goes, ‘What?’ And I go, ‘You don’t want that.’ And then he’s like, ‘Yeah, yeah. I don’t,’” he said.
Most of the time, Adam says he doesn’t shut them down, but he told Jen that she’s “making the right move” as she has a long life ahead of her.
Jennifer Lawrence: ‘I Become Incredibly Rude’ to Avoid Fan Encounters in Public
Now, Kris is recalling what happened during an appearance on STEVE, Steve Harvey‘s talk show.
“She was a big Keeping Up With the Kardashians fan,” Kris said of meeting Jennifer for the first time years ago. “And somebody from her team called me up and said, ‘Would you surprise Jennifer on her birthday and give her a birthday cake, like you’ll be the surprise.’ When I walked out with this cake, she was so excited…and we’ve had this little texting friendship from then on.”
Then, years passed and just last month, they had dinner.
“Well, she had some time off, and I invited her over for dinner. We started having a few cocktails, and we were having so much fun. And as girls do when they all get together, we ended up in my closet, looking at clothes and some stuff, and she started trying some stuff on. She just took off her jeans and went for it!” Kris explained.
Watch a video from her appearance below…
Here’s what the 27-year-old and 51-year-old actors had to say:
Jennifer on dating Darren Aronofsky while promoting mother!: “We’d be on the tour together, I’d come back to the hotel and the last thing I want to talk about or think about is the movie, and he comes back and that’s all he wants to talk about…I was doing double duty of trying to be a supportive partner while also being like, ‘Can I please, for the love of God, not think about mother! for one second?’”
Jennifer on reading negative reviews: “It’s so bizarre because you’re so in the zone, you put your whole soul and body, you move to shoot a movie, and you then love it, obviously because you wouldn’t be there if you didn’t love it, and then people just destroy it.”
Adam on why he stopped reading reviews after critics panned Billy Madison in 1995: “It didn’t make sense to me, and it screwed my thinking up a little bit.”

““This is iconic. Jennifer Lawrence looks like she’s seen a ghost,” Amelia wrote on her Instagram story. “I’m done. Goodnight. Tuck me in.”
