The flop of her latest film, “mother!” was devastating for Jennifer Lawrence and even more so because she was dating the film’s director, Darren Aronofsky.

She said that she found out how the negative response to “mother!” was by checking Twitter.

“It was horrible. It was really bad. I liked this so much, and it broke my heart, especially for Darren [Aronofsky] because he loved this person. And every time that you are in a relationship, their pain is pain,” she told The Hollywood Reporter.

The industry magazine notes, Lawrence and Aronofsky are no longer together. The couple split recently, according to People. She said that the film is not difficult to overcome.

“I have probably more uncertain after last year, and I don’t know if that is just a feeling of: I still have more to lose, I have more people to disappoint. I don’t know how to explain it,” she reflected.

Jennifer Lawrence film, ‘Mother!’ muggings as a “grotesque and sickening’

She is ready to take chances with her upcoming film “Red Sparrow,” in March, which has her in a sexual role – a first for the actress who was the victim of a nude photo hack more than three years ago.

“…’Red Sparrow’ was sexual, and I have done nothing sexy or sexual,” she told The Hollywood Reporter. “I’m afraid that since 2014, when I have my pictures hacked. I thought, ” I will never do it again. I will never share that part of myself since it was a shared against my will.’ And when I said ” yes “Red Sparrow,” I feel that I give something back.”

She revealed she is still affected by the leak of her racy private photos.

“I have such anxiety with my phone and my computer and electronics,” she said. “It is the taking of someone’s intellectual property, but also my body. It was a violation on a sexual level.”

In the extensive interview, conducted by Oprah Winfrey, Lawrence also opened up about being asked to take part in a naked line-up when they audition for a role.

“It was offensive. I mean, it was not sexual abuse in the…” she clarified. “But I was abused by a woman in a movie…There was a general consensus [that] the movie that I was fat, so it was not only the wife. Everyone agreed that I was fat. And she had the nozzle.”

She chose to share of her experience after dozens of women spoke out against the former movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, Lawrence has worked.

“Just speaking for myself, I had known him since I was 20, and he had only been nice to me, with the exception of the moments that he is not, and when I called him an a-hole, and we moved. He was fatherly to me. So I needed a moment to process everything, because I thought I knew this man, and he is accused of rape. We all knew that he was a dog, we knew that he was a… tough guy, a brute, a tough guy to negotiate. I did not know that he is a rapist.”

Lawrence, 27, said she would like more women are speaking out about their experiences with sexual harassment and abuse.

“I don’t know a woman who hasn’t been touched by a sort of abuse. I am sad by the women of the stories, but I’m excited by the change that is coming.”
