We’re still talking about “mother!,” so that’s… something, I guess? And while there are a fair amount of mother! apologists (I see you guys on Facebook), Darren Aronofsky’s $30 million fever dream still has an F rating on Cinemascore (something Aronofsky, unsurprisingly, doesn’t give two hoots about).
But what does the film’s star (and Aronofsky’s girlfriend) Jennifer Lawrence have to say to the film’s critics? Last night, at an Academy screening in New York, the usually outspoken Lawrence decided instead to make her point with a gesture:
That’s right, folks, just when you thought Jennifer Lawrence had no fucks left to give, she goes and flips off the Academy. Not that it will effect her ability to win all the awards. But I have to say, my favorite part of this photo is Aronofsky’s look of glee. Maybe I’ve been underestimating Hollywood’s most unexpected power couple… which is troubling, because if they make another film together, they’re going to have to top that scene. God (Javier Bardem) help us all.
