Haley Bennett Tells 'Elle' She Gets Recognized As Jennifer Lawrence & Has To Disappoint People

Haley Bennett shows off her fierce style on the cover of Elle magazine’s December issue, hitting newsstands nationwide today (November 15)!

Here’s what the 28-year-old Girl On The Train star had to share with the mag:

On getting mistakenly recognized as Jennifer Lawrence: “I like the idea of having a superordinary life. I joke around all the time that I get recognized — but I get recognized as Jennifer Lawrence. It’s really kind of awkward when I have to disappoint everybody that I’m actually not her.”

On her The Girl on the Train role being the most difficult thing she’s ever done: “I bared a lot for the role, and very little of it was my body. [Becoming that character] was a disorienting experience, and I felt scared, vulnerable, and really exposed. At the same time, I felt weirdly like I was being judged in a certain way. You kind of want to go on set and say, ‘I’m not really like this. I just want you to know that I’m so different than this.’ So I’m happy that Girl on the Train isn’t the only film that I have emerging, that there’s a bigger picture.”

    I thought it’d be more like ‘rushed off your feet’ more than anything in rush hour.

  • Anna

    I honestly don’t see the resembles. I think if anything she sort of looks like a younger Cate Blanchett.

  • Gina

    Agreed. She looks very much like Cate.
