In a new interview, Jennifer Lawrence admitted, “I should have listened to her” when Adele warned her against appearing in the critically panned 2016 film Passengers. Jennifer Lawrence is thinking back on her traumatic experience in outer space.
Jennifer and Chris Pratt played a hibernating couple on a spaceship whose sleep is abruptly interrupted 90 years too soon in the 2016 science fiction romance Passengers, and the Oscar winner recently claimed that Adele warned her against taking the role.
Despite her initial disinterest, the actress eventually came to regret not heeding her friend’s advise. Adele warned me not to, Jennifer told The New York Times on November 2.
If only I had listened to her when she said, “I feel like space movies are the new vampire flicks.” The Hunger Games actress claimed she understood the harsh backlash the film experienced when it came out.
The 32-year-old woman revealed, “I was like, ‘Oh no, you guys are here because I’m here, and I’m here because of you. Incredulous: “Wait, who determined that this was a decent movie?”
Jennifer said, “Everything was like a rebound effect. I was reacting, rather than just acting.” She felt she had stopped listening to her gut at some point.
However, this isn’t the first time the actor has mentioned Passengers as a blunder in his or her resume. She told Vanity Fair in 2021 that she “was not churning out the quality that I should have,” referring to the run of films she had completed before taking a hiatus from acting in 2019.
When asked to elaborate, she said, “It had just gotten to a point where I couldn’t do anything right. If I walked a red carpet, it was, ‘Why didn’t she run?'”
With the star-studded Netflix film Don’t Look Up in 2021, Jennifer made her acting return. The American Hustle star will also be making her return to screens on November 4 in the drama Causeway, which will be released in theatres and on Apple TV+.
