Jennifer Lawrence Has ‘Two Left Feet’
Jennifer Lawrence has "two left feet" when it comes to dancing.
The Hunger Games actress struggled when she had to shoot scenes for her role as a dance expert in upcoming film Silver Linings Playbook - based on author Matthew Quick's best-seller - because she has no rhythm or co-ordination. Jennifer's character Tiffany is a grieving widow who helps former teacher/mental institution patient Pat - played by Bradley Cooper - win back his wife. Only there is one condition, he has to partner her in a dance competition.
"I have two left feet, and I'm not exactly a graceful mover. Bradley's the one who can dance - and he's not supposed to know how to!" she told The Daily Mail.
The 22-year-old beauty didn't expect to be offered the role, joking that she didn't think they'd hire a "klutz." However, she wowed director David O. Russell - who directed Oscar-winning film The Fighter - with an audition conducted via internet video chat service Skype.
"Jennifer did her audition on Skype from her parents' home in Louisville. I knew she was Tiffany the moment I saw it. She was funny and she just has a quality about her," he said.
The film also stars Robert De Niro and Jacki Weaver as Pat's parents and Julia Styles as his wife Veronica.
