[Movies] David O. Russell Claims Jennifer Lawrence Is 'Working Like A Slave' On The Set Of The Hunger Games Posted by Joseph Lee on 01.14.2014
They work her too hard...
David O. Russell recently told New York Daily News that Jennifer Lawrence is being "worked like a slave" on the set of the Hunger Games films.
While at the Australian Academy's AACTA Awards in Los Angeles, he said: "I personally think they should give her a bit of breathing room over there because they're printing money. But she's a very alive person. I'll tell you what it is about that girl — talk about 12 years of slavery, that's what the franchise is. And I'm going to get in so much trouble for saying that."
He also compared the franchise to a "hamster wheel" and said that Lawrence takes on more artistic roles as a "vacation". The series has had two films in two years with two more on the way.
Lawrence won best actress for American Hustle at the AACTA Awards, while writer Eric Warren Singer and Russell picked up Best Screenplay.
