“Did that mean he couldn’t be a rapist?” She comments annoyed. In another trial, an actress whose name is not told stated that while Weinstein sexually harassed her, she allegedly said, “I slept with Jennifer Lawrence and look where she got to; has just won an Oscar ».
The thought of being named as a notch on Weinstein’s belt disgusts her. “Harvey’s victims were women who thought he would help them. Thankfully, when I ran into Harvey during my career, I was about to win an Oscar and was busy with Hunger Games. So I avoided being in that situation. Obviously, I am a woman who works in the cinema, it is not that I have always and only met men with impeccable behavior. But that’s a perfect example of how finding success early on actually saved me. ‘ It didn’t save her, however, from a bad experience in 2014, when a hacker he posted some of his intimate photos online, allowing all the keyboard voyeurs to take a look.

While the actress plays an honest and sensitive astronomer who tries to warn a world populated by indifferent and corrupt humans, DiCaprio’s character is somewhat reminiscent of Anthony Fauci, one who still wants to believe that the world will take the necessary measures. to avoid disaster. DiCaprio defines Jennifer Lawrence “one of the most talented actresses of these times, very skilled at improvising and totally immersing herself in character”. On set, she enjoyed remembering acting as children. “Like, while he sat down to eat a bite, I yelled at him: ‘It’s toxic!'”, Jennifer tells me, «They always told us when we were little:“ Don’t eat that stuff.
