Its a dependable fact that Jennifer Lawrence was pushed as far as possible, rationally and physically, while taping Darren Aronofsky’s polarizing mother! She not just tore her stomach from shouting so much, yet she additionally separated a rib amid one especially tiring scene.
So as to enable Lawrence to loosen up from the passionate toll of her part between takes, the group made the unscripted television enthusiast a Kardashians tent, a mystical place where the performer could drench herself in the Kardashians — from photographs of Kim, Kourtney, and Khloe to scenes of Keeping Up With the Kardashians that played on a circle to “little notes from the Kardashians that I had composed, from them to me,” Lawrence disclosed to MTV News.
Yet, not every person on the arrangement of mother! comprehended Lawrence’s fixation. For instance, her co-star Javier Bardem had no clue who the Kardashians even were. “She enlightened me once regarding the Kardashians. Presently I find out about their identity, yet at the time, I didn’t know their identity,” Bardem revealed to MTV News reporter Josh Horowitz at the New York squeeze day for the film.
“She was laughing at me so hard, You don’t know who the Kardashians are? Like she was talking to me about Einstein,” he added. “‘No, I don’t know who those people are. Who are them? What’s their planet? Where are they coming from? What do they want? Where is the spaceship?'”
As for Aronofsky, the tent really wasn’t his style, but he appreciated the fact that Lawrence had a safe space for herself. Though, he did pop his head inside once to check it out, only to immediately turn around at the smell of candles. (While the director doesn’t share her enthusiasm for reality television stars, Lawrence did say that he’s coming around to The Real Housewives of Dallas.)
In the end, J-Law’s Kardashians tent didn’t even get that much use. On the day in which she was most looking forward to a little break in the tent, the Oscar winner ended up tearing her diaphragm and hyperventilating to the point where she needed oxygen.
“We ended up putting so much work into this Kardashian tent, and then I just died,” Lawrence said.1 of 1
