“I didn’t know Jennifer Lawrence. I hadn’t seen Winter’s Bone. But, as evidenced by that picture and this picture, I would say that she’s one of the very best actors working today. She’s just wonderful. I said to her, ‘You should change your name to Jennifer Lawrence Olivier’.”
|—||Donald Sutherland about Jennifer Lawrence.|
For her role in Winter's Bone (2010), Jennifer Lawrence learned to skin squirrels, chop wood, and fight.
"When I first got to New York, my feet hit the sidewalk and you'd have thought I was born and raised there. I took over that town. None of my friends took me seriously. I came home and announced, 'I'm going to move to New York,' and they were like 'OK.' Then when I did, they kept waiting for me to fail and come back. But I knew I wouldn't. I was like, 'I'll show you.'"-Jennifer Lawerence
