Los Angeles, March 31 (IANS) Actress Jennifer Lawrence, who had an “imaginary future” as a soccer mum, says her mother is instrumental in making her a full-fledged successful actress.
The 22-year-old got a breakthrough with movie “Hunger Games” in 2012, which is first part in the trilogy series based on author Suzanne Collins’s books by same name. Later, she won best actress Oscar for her work in “Silver Linings Playbook”.
“I was happy with my life and I didn’t know if I wanted it to change. I’ve always had this imaginary future where I would be a soccer mum that drove a mini-van and my kids would be normal.”
“That just didn’t fit with taking on a giant franchise. So, I took three days to decide, and each day was a different answer,” Fabulous magazine quoted Lawrence as saying.
The 22-year-old says her mother advised her to sign “Hunger Games” franchise.
“I finally talked to my mum. I’d only really done indie films before that, and she said: ‘Every time people ask you why you don’t do studio movies, you always say that it’s because you don’t care about the size of the movie, you care about the story and the character. But you’re a hypocrite, because now you have a story and a character that you love, but you’re not saying yes to it because of the size of it.’ So, I said yes,” she said.
