Whoever is doing the seating arrangements at this weekend’s Academy Awards should probably keep Jennifer Lawrence and Daniel Day-Lewis on opposite sides of the room.
J-Law told podcast king Marc Maron that she stopped watching Daniel Day-Lewis’s retirement film, Phantom Thread, after three minutes. Daniel, triple Oscar winner (Jen’s got one) announced his retirement from acting last year, and said Phantom would be his last go-round.
The movie has been nominated for six Oscars, including a Best Actor nod for him, but it certainly hasn’t caught on with the public, earning a measly $19 mil at the box office after nine weeks in release.
“I’m sorry to anybody who loved that movie. I couldn’t give that kind of time. It was three minutes and I was just [oof],” Lawrence told Maron.
“Is it just about clothes? Is [Lewis’s character] kind of like a narcissistic sociopath and he’s an artist so every girl falls in love him because he makes her feel bad about herself and that’s the love story? I haven’t seen it, so I don’t know. I’ve been down that road, I know what what’s like, I don’t need to watch that movie.”
