Jennifer Lawrence is one of the greatest actresses of her time, and currently one of Hollywood’s “It” girls, and yet even she has had “flops” at the box office… not that she really thinks about the success or failure of her films.
During a recent interview with Elle, which appeared in their November 2017 issue, Lawrence opened up about her so-called “flop” film, Passengers, which raked in $303 million, but was low for Lawrence’s other film standards. According to the actress, she doesn’t focus on the tickets sold (at least not for long), but instead does her part, acts, and then moves forward.
“The only time I find myself worrying about the result is when I’m filming, because I’m working all day, and then I come home and my brain’s just like, What should we panic about?” Lawrence told Elle about the pressure to make money for each movie she’s in. “After I’ve finished the process, though, it’s done for me. I’ve done my work, and I’ve gotten what I need to get out of it — I’ve fulfilled myself. What happens next doesn’t really matter.”
Although Lawrence doesn’t panic about selling tickets to her films — at least once she’s wrapped a movie — she does continually choose roles that become hits at the box office, including, The Hunger Games franchise, American Hustle, the X-Men movies and more.
Despite all of her success at such a young age — she’s currently 27 years old — Lawrence does plan to take some time off and “get a farm,” but her fans can rest easy knowing that she will be back in front of the camera in 2018, but she won’t be filming anything new next year.
