Jodie tells HollywoodLife.com that Jennifer impressed her so much that she changed the whole script for her young star!
Jennifer Lawrence, who stars in Jodie Foster‘s new movie The Beaver, was so important to the project that Jodie revamped her script to make sure it worked for the Oscar-nominated actress! Jodie, who directed and co-starred in the movie with good friend Mel Gibson, tells us exclusively about why Jennifer is perfect in her big role as Norah.
“I don’t know if I see myself in her, she’s a lot taller and prettier,” Jodie revealed to us at the NYC screening of The Beaver at The Film Society of Lincoln Center. “She’s amazing and I saw lots of actresses play this role and none of them were quite right –and then I saw her audition, and obviously little bits and pieces of Winter’s Bone before it was finished, and I just said this is who I want…now I’m going to re-write the role for her! So we went back and re-wrote the whole role for her!”
Wow — what a compliment for this rising star!
