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.
