Director David O. Russell on Jennifer Lawrence's Wage Inequality Essay: 'I Support Her & All Women'

David O. Russell is speaking out about Jennifer Lawrence‘s recent wage inequality essay for Lena Dunham‘s Lenny Letter.

The 57-year-old director, who has worked with the 25-year-old actress on Silver Linings Playbook, American Hustle, and his latest film Joy, says he supports her opinion on the topic.

“I always support all my actors and all their opinions, and I want them all to get what they need,” David told THR. “I don’t really talk about the minutia of what goes on in my movies, but I believe the spirit of what Jennifer is saying is truthful to her heart. I support her and all women in that.”

“I understand what she’s saying, and I think people in the business do too, and I also understand people saying, ‘Well, let’s talk about the minutia of the deal.’ It’s hard to make a movie come together with a lot of big stars,” David continued. “American Hustle had a lot of big stars in it, we all contributed to help make it happen.”

He added, “But I also respect that Jennifer is finding her voice, and I think it’s in service of something very important. Jennifer‘s character in Joy is about the same thing – maturity, learning what it is to have your own space and express your own voice, and to have power. And that’s what she’s learning.”

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.

“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!”

Though Jennifer is mostly known for her movies, her musical vocals have been getting some attention lately since the release of her recent movie The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1.

Check out the new remix of Jennifer‘s song “Hanging Tree,” mixed by new Universal Republic/Casablanca Records artist Michael Gazzo.

“‘Hanging Tree’ is an iconic ballad. Currently topping the charts in almost every single country, the track was a no brainer when it came to remixing! My take on “Hanging Tree” is much lighter, and listener friendly. Although the nature of the track is dark, I envisioned it uplifting an entire group of people to rise up. To unite,” Michael shared to Yahoo.
