Jennifer Lawrence Talks 'Red Sparrow' & Being Politically Woke, Lensed By Inez & Vinoodh For Vanity Fair

Krista Smith enjoys roast chicken Chez Jennifer Lawrence, interviewing for Vanity Fair the world's highest-paid female actor about her upcoming role as a Russian prima ballerina turned Soviet operative Dominika Egorova in 'Red Sparrow'. Lawrence protested vociferously about doing her nude scene, arguing that she has never recovered from the 2014 Internet theft of nude photos intended for her then boyfriend Nicholas Hoult. (Note that the man responsible for the crime was prosecuted and sentenced to 18 mos in prison.)

Lawrence finally conceded that the nude scene in 'Red Sparrow' was essential to the film's plot line, and ultimately her decision was empowering in her words, thanks to her long-time friend, the film's director France Lawrence (no relation). Basically Lawrence looked Lawrence in the eye as the scene was being filmed -- not in the t-ts (my word). 

The Smith-Lawrence convo got extra interesting once the topic turned to politics. 

“I’ve always thought that it was a good idea to stay out of politics,” says Lawrence. “Twenty-five percent of America identifies as liberal and I need more than 25 percent of America to go see my movies. It’s not wise, career-speaking, to talk about politics. When Donald Trump got sworn into office, that fucking changed.”

This fall, Lawrence flew to Africa to shadow photojournalist Lynsey Addario as she documented South Sudanese refugees crossing into Uganda. Although the experience offered her a rare veil of anonymity (when introducing herself to a U.N. worker as Jennifer, he replied, “Ahhh, like Jennifer Lopez”), she was haunted by her uselessness. “The worst feeling about being there was that I wasn’t helping anybody,” she says of the humanitarian crisis. “I was doing a character study.” (Lawrence is also a producer on It’s What I Do, the Spielberg film based on Addario’s memoir.) Lawrence, who has donated generously to a number of charities (including $2 million to a children’s hospital in her hometown this year), said she found solace in vowing to visit again in a more active role.

This photo was shared by Lynsey Addario with Jennifer Lawrence on her Instagram page, with the message: "Look who I dragged to Uganda/South Sudan.

While the bulk of my own work in Sudan has been in Khartoum, AOC has been covering the South Sudan refugee crisis. Read on: Nykhor Paul's 'We Are Nilotic' T-shirts Zero In On South Sudan's Fragile Beauty.
