Jennifer Lawrence Says She's an "Awful" Dancer and Shooting a Bow & Arrow is Easier For Her
We all saw Hunger Games and know Jennifer Lawrence is quite the bad ass, but according to her, she wasn't so cool learning to dance for her new role in Silver Linings Playbook .
She stars with Bradley Cooper in the film who she didn't know before, but became friends with him quickly after the first day of shooting.
The first day on set, the pair had to learn to dance for a scene in the movie, which Jennifer loved, but thought was challenging at the same time.
"It's a great way to get to know a person," Jennifer told E! News. "You're instantly sweating and learning something together."
Bradley was nervous about the dance routine, but was comfortable being around Jennifer learning it with her.
"I remember I thought, OK, it's going to be all right because we are holding each other and we were both very vulnerable to this choreographed dance that we were going to have to do in three weeks in front of Robert De Niro. We [were] treading water together, helplessly treading water together."
Director David O. Russell laughed about how the two were inexperienced at first.
"They were really beginners, but what they lacked in skill, they made up for in passion and willingness. They had a lot of willingness…They learned how to dance. They started out not knowing, he said.
Jennifer claims she is an "awful" dancer and that her role as Katniss was easier.
"If you miss a target, you still look cool because you're holding a bow and arrow," she said. "But when you mess up dancing you just look like an idiot."
Silver Linings Playbook opens tomorrow November 21 and the anticipated sequel Hunger Games: Catching Fire will hit theaters on Nov. 22, 2013.
