“It’s certainly not a darling. It never crossed our mind that everyone was going to love it,” Jennifer Lawrence said at The Contenders today of mother!, Darren Aronofsky’s polarizing Paramount picture in which she stars opposite Javier Bardem. “It’s an assault, but I think it’s necessary. I’m proud of us, and I’m proud of Darren for writing and conceiving it.”
Lawrence stars in the film as a woman known only as “Mother,” who finds herself at the hands of a mysterious and increasingly disturbing home invasion. Lawrence knew, taking on the project, that it would be a challenge — but one that she was ready to confront. “It was something I’d never done before,” the Oscar winner said. “It’s what I wanted from working with Darren, to be challenged in different ways. Everything about him is unique, and all the movies he’s made are unique.”
Lawrence’s preparations for the project involved “a three-week rehearsal period in Brooklyn,” though the actress said she found her character just before beginning production. And while the experience of the film is a daunting one, Lawrence said she had to keep herself in a good mental place to consider the endeavor worth the effort. “I had to find a place of staying mentally healthy with this bizarre job in all sorts of ways, and if I had to be sad all day, or feel intense emotional pain all day, I wouldn’t do this,” she said. “I’ve never lost myself [in a character] before this movie. I couldn’t get my brain in order.”

We have some posters for Jennifer’s film, Mother! I am getting super excited for this movie! Check it out on September 15 :)
Director Darren Aronofsky’s highly anticipated Jennifer Lawrence-starring film mother! premieres next month, but we still have next to no idea what it’s about. We know it’s a horror thriller. We know the official log line is simply, “A couple’s relationship is tested when uninvited guests arrive at their home, disrupting their tranquil existence.” We know that there’s all sorts of bizarre and creepy sounding bit parts listed on IMDb like “sex slave #2.” Other than that we have literally no idea what the film is about exactly. Even the cryptic teaser trailer debuted earlier this week gave us very little fresh insight.
Producers infamously dropped a haunting painted movie poster feature Lawrence’s character ripping her own heart out of her chest over Mother’s Day weekend. Now, they’ve finally revealed a similar poster featuring Bardem’s character (we guess we can assume he’s the other half of the couple that has their relationship tested, but who can say for sure?). While Lawrence’s poster is set amidst a green, luscious garden, Bardem’s is set in what seems to be hell. Look closely at the flames and you can see little demon faces in them. Lawrence is holding her heart, while Bardem is holding an orb with what appears to be a tiny little baby in it.
Clearly the moviemakers want you to take a closer look at both poster and compare and contrast each, because they’ve uploaded them, square-by-square, to Instagram in slideshow format with one poster overlaying the other.
