No, not that kind. Although it would be pretty funny to read about Jennifer Lawrence acting SO HARD, she shot a rubber birth control disc out of her business like a Frisbee and almost took out an assistant director, a gaffer, and the craft service table.
This diaphragm story is about the body part. The Daily Mail says that while walking the red carpet of the London premiere of mother! on Wednesday night, JLaw admitted she gave it so much of her all during filming, even though she wasn’t sure she was even right for the part.
“That’s what scared me and I thought I was severely miscast. I found time to find who she was while working with Darren and I was able to pull out this personality that I didn’t know existed.”
And apparently part of that personality-reaching caused her to do some damage:
“I tore my diaphragm from hyperventilating. People thought I was beaten up, so I want to clear it up that I did it to myself. It was my own doing.”
Somewhere master thespian Jared Leto is probably like, “Oh yeah? Well…um…those contacts I wore to make me look blind totally made my eyes water.”
Darren Aronofsky (director and boyfriend of JLaw) seems like one of those intense types who gets a director boner from encouraging the kind of on-set performances that will either require a medic or a therapy visit. So it doesn’t surprise me that Jennifer Lawrence ACTED! to the point of rippin’ and tearin’ her screaming muscle. That’s what the diaphragm is, right? I missed that episode of Slim Goodbody. But before Jennifer hit the red carpet, I wonder if she and Darren went over which fun filming story she was going to tell?
Jennifer: “Remember that day I farted and the whole set smelled like chicken fingers?”
Darren: “Yeah, cool cool cool. Listen, I’ve got a reputation as a deep and serious director to keep up here, so let’s go with the diaphragm tear one, okay?”
Here’s Jennifer working some 80s wrestler hair at the Paris premiere of mother!, as well as her scarf-enthusiast boyfriend at the unveiling of his own beach locker at the Deauville American Film Festival earlier today.
