In a press conference, the protagonist of Netflix’s new big hit confessed that she didn’t have a good time while filming her first scene
It seems that Netflix got what it was looking for with the premiere of Don’t look up, the new big hit from the streaming platform that divides the waters and has a cast full of stars: Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Lawrence, Meryl Streep and Jonah Hill, among other Hollywood personalities.
The film held the No. 1 spot in Argentina’s chart for several days and is among the hottest topics of conversation on social media. In the past few hours, Lawrence’s statements at a press conference have drawn attention. The artist, who in this film plays astronomer Kate Dibiasky, revealed that the first day of filming was the “worst” of her life. “It was scary,” she said.
The 31-year-old actress had to memorize and do her own rendition of New York rap group Wu-Tang Clan’s classic song ‘Ai n’t Nuthing ta F’ Wit’ while she ate toast . “Something happened with the coronavirus, so that ended up being my first scene,” she explained. The studio was packed and she was on a mission to break the ice with a complex challenge.
“It was scary,” the actress said. I didn’t know anyone and had to rap like the Wu-Tang Clan. It was horrible. And then what appears in the movie is like, I don’t know, five seconds. I wish I had known sooner.”
Adam McKay, the film’s writer-director, interrupted the story to tell Jennifer she had done a great job. “Hey, I knew my homework. I knew all the words, I still know them,” she replied defiantly, and without much hesitation proved once again that she wouldn’t do too badly with rapping.
However, that wasn’t the only obstacle for Lawrence while filming Don’t Look Up. “Well, I lost a tooth at the start of filming,” the actress told The Associated Press. “And I couldn’t go to the dentist until the end of the film, so I had to shoot most of it without the tooth. It was my personal challenge,” she assured.
Don’t Look Up (Don’t Look Up, its original title) tells the story of Kate Dibiasky (Lawrence), a graduate student, and her professor, Dr. Randall Mindy (DiCaprio), two rather mediocre astronomers who discover something catastrophic: In a few months, a meteorite will destroy planet Earth. From that moment, they decide to bring the information of their discovery to the authorities, but no one acknowledges receipt. For this reason, together with Dr. Oglethorpe (Rob Morgan), they try to go to the media to warn humanity of the danger that awaits them.
