Jennifer Lawrence Releases Statement on David O. Russell Rumors

Jennifer Lawrence just released a personal statement on her Facebook account to clear up all those nasty rumors about a “fight” with David O. Russell on the set of Joy.

A report was released saying the actress and director had a screaming match, but a Fox rep said it was all method acting to get hyped up for the scene.

“Hey guys! It’s Jen!” she wrote on her page. “I know I don’t go on here a lot because I can barely work email but there’s been a terrible rumor going around the last 24 hours so I wanted to clear it up.”

David O. Russell is one of my closest friends and we have an amazing collaborative working relationship,” Jennifer continued. “I adore this man and he does not deserve this tabloid malarkey. This movie is going great and I’m having a blast making it!”

Joy is the third movie the two stars are collaborating on after Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle.

    Its not her.. its her team haha.. still glad they cleared this BS up!

  • beautylover

    she’s so full of shit and it’s sad how people don’t see that !

  • guest

    Sure, Jen.

    You can work with any director you want and you decide to keep doing it with this bully.
    I guess you want another Oscar that badly. You and Bradley Cooper are becoming very thirsty.

    Besides, is ridculous that her character is a woman in her 40′s. Couldn’t they cast someone that age? I’m sure Jen wil be great, but it seems wrong.

  • hollywoodganstaa

    How do you know that hes a bully?

  • hollywoodganstaa

    What, how? Pls tell me how shes full of shit.

  • FerCat

    You’ll know it’s a real fight if someone utters these three little word.
    “I Made You”

  • Guest

    I still believe TMZ said the trust because DOR is a huge dick but hey, better not for him to add this on his list and for Bradley and Jen to have another flop huh ?

  • hollywoodganstaa

    You believe TMZ? That site is full of crap.. Lol.

  • Davis

    How is it cleared up? It’s not like an actress to lie, they had a fight they’re just making up crap to cover it up.

  • Name

    Hard to understand how this is Lawrence making the statement, when everyone knows she doesn’t have FB, IG, or Twitter. If it was her PR team, they should’ve said it was a statement from her. Otherwise, it just appears like it’s someone posing as her saying this, which could be construed as a lie.

  • hollywoodganstaa

    Bunch of haters on here, if you hate her then why are you on something to do with her, I don’t get it?

  • hakuna.mataaaata

    I believe only what i see , where are the proofs of this fight

  • hollywoodganstaa

    true but still

  • carrie

    According to Kris Tapley and Ann Thompson,American Hustle’s filming was so painful that Christian Bale and Jennifer Lawrence didn’t want to work with O Russell anymore.Thompson thought they could change their opinions if they were nominated. JLAw changed her opinion .

  • hakuna.mataaaata

    but the facebook is authenticated so it’s really hers

  • Guest

    Well yeah, but it’s not a matter of the website, really, except if things seems plausible I don’t believe gossips in genera. But indeed, they say that the studio confirmed the scream “A rep for the movie’s studio — Fox 2000 — tells us yes, there was screaming, but it was all method acting. David was just getting J. Law amped-up for a scene in which she screams at someone.” they just don’t have the same version (but again same source _ you of course don’t have to believe them). But just do some research about DOR back story (his niece, fight with Clooney, fight with Lily Tomlin (video), compare filming THG with slavery,etc …), it’s the kind of rumor I tend to believe.

  • hakuna.mataaaata

    I’ll give you a currency , in life believe only what you see with your
    eyes , if you don’t you will always be sheep

  • Cate

    Does she even have Facebook?. Anyway if this is legit it is clearly damage control. She’s hardly going to admit Russell is a raging jerk that she gets into screaming matches with. Doubt she wrote it anyway it. It sounds like it was written by a member of her PR team trying to sound like her.

  • Name

    I understand it’s her statement via her reps, not her going on what some people may now think is her personal FB account. I’ve already seen people post that it’s a lie for that very reason-they know she doesn’t have a personal account. Just that little clarification makes a difference.

  • The real Luke

    I was going to say paul wslker got a poisonous facial all the way till you hit 90 I mean make a good film now

  • The real Luke

  • annalisejon

    shes going to say whatever she can say so he’ll keep casting her lame butt in his movies. i just dont get the hype of her AT all

  • MimiB

    Have you read any of the many many stories about his abuse towards people who work on his film? Do some Googling.

  • your best guest

    Malarkey? I’m sure she says that word all the time. Not. Sounds like some old dude–part of her team–wrote this fake bs for her.

    And, why would she work for a person who has a history of abusing actors, extras, and others? Oh, right, fame, money, and awards. Whatever…

  • The real Luke

    Doing your pants can be a 13 year emergency

  • MimiB

    She’s said she doesn’t use social media… but her PR team may. Just suggesting…

  • Davis

    You didn’t see them not fight and DOR has a history of flipping out and acting like a complete tool

  • Broadzilla

    Ha….When they put exclamation points (!) at the end, they’re always exaggerating. This doesn’t even sound like her. Her PR people are working OT on this one.

  • Broadzilla

    Other people can say what they want not just you.

  • hollywoodganstaa

    No shit, but I don’t understand why they hate, they need to get lives.. They should maybe look at hers and then look at there own.

  • hollywoodganstaa

    Watch her movies and do some googling and then you would!

  • Stergios

    Well said man.

  • DorothyfromOz

    People always want to think the worst, its sad that so many find joy (pun intended) in other peoples issues.

  • Davis

    Still what?

  • TeamBella76

    Knew it ! TMZ NEEDS to stop putting out B.S ! Of course people on here are so miserable they need to make stupid comments about someone else’s life to make themselves feel better GET A LIFE !

  • Wanderersmind

    Both of them are so overrated.

  • VARIETY MAGAZINE ACCOUNTING

    A former actress who was never really an actress mentioned in an article with no pictures about an old movie project that isnt being made. This whole story is bogus to sell her old movie projects. Get her out of here!!

  • Broadzilla

    Maybe you should worry about your own life and less about everyone else’s.

  • Courtney

    Okay, go home and get off whatever you’ve been smoking.

  • Courtney

    This is just my opinion, but given the fact that Jen rarely comments on social media and that this statement was released so quickly, I think it really was her and not her team. She has a Facebook account, but it’s not her personal one. She and David have known each other for years and they always create beautiful work together. I doubt it was an actual fight, but given the bad things I’ve heard about him, it probably was just a matter of time if it’s true.

  • Courtney

    Plus, why do you find it so hard to believe that Jen can use big words like malarkey? She said in her interview with VF last year she doesn’t like lackeys (otherwise known as kiss-ass people) and that’s a word you don’t hear often. She’s smart enough to use sophisticated vocabulary when she wants to.
