Jennifer Lawrence: ‘Interview Germany’ Cover Girl

Jennifer Lawrence tells Interview magazine that she’s always wanted to play Bridget Jones, the famous role Renee Zellweger packed on pounds for.

“I have always wanted to play Bridget Jones. I want the movies to not exist so that I can do that. That’s the movie I put on when I am homesick, although England is not my home.”

“When you’re feeling ‘bleh’ and you want a movie that you’re never bored of watching, Bridget Jones is that for me so it’s natural to say that I want to be Bridget Jones.”

“But I never wanted to replace Renee Zellweger.”

All I heard was Jennifer Lawrence hinting that she wants to get paid to be fat. Good luck with that. Jessica Simpson has been trying to do that for years.
