Jennifer Lawrence Dishes On ‘Don’t Look Up’

‘Red Sparrow’ star Jennifer Lawrence is just one of the larger cast of director Adam McKay’s Netflix disaster comedy ‘Don’t Look Up.’ She is joined by fellow Academy Award winners Leonardo DiCaprio and Meryl Streep in the film’s ensemble. The story follows a pair of scientists, played by Lawrence and DiCaprio who are trying to warn about the end of the world.
Lawrence recently opened up about the experience in an interview released by the streaming service.
“I’ve always wanted to work with Adam McKay, I’m a huge fan,” she said when asked when drew her to the project. “When I read the script, I thought it was genius. It’s maybe the funniest script I’ve ever read, and I thought it was such a poignant way to get such an important point across, that people don’t need to be fighting each other over science. We need to be fighting this collective war to save humanity together.”
When asked about working with McKay, said, “He’s a comedy writer so he’s just coming up with hilarious material as we’re going. It was so fun to get pitched one hilarious line after another.” She added, “There was a lot of improv in the film. Adam made us feel very free to move with whatever you’re feeling.”
Asked about preparing for the role, Lawrence replied, “I spoke to a brilliant astronomer named Amy Mainzer. I was mostly curious about what the world for a female astronomer looks like since they’re so outnumbered. That helped shape Kate’s personality, how she dresses, how she carries herself. I tried to learn about astronomy as well, but I don’t know how much of it I retained. Leo, of course, learned all of it.”
