If you've seen Mother!, you know that the movie is no picnic. Love it or loathe it, only the steeliest among us will be able to get through the film – which works as a Biblical allegory and is also simultaneously about climate change – without cringing.
(Spoilers ahead, but...people eat a baby.)
During Pfeiffer's new interview with The New York Times, the Scarface actress was asked if she identified her character — listed in the credits as only "Woman" — with the Biblical character of Eve, which writer-director Darren Aronofsky intended her to be. Pfeiffer stated:
"[Darren Aronofsky] was very careful not to make those references to us. I was just a woman who was still, after all these years, madly in love with my husband, and who is having a lot of family difficulties. A very real, very human place," she told The New York Times, before adding: "And every now and then I would give Jen a really weird look [laughs loudly], just because."
It's unclear if Pfeiffer was giving Lawrence these "weird looks" as Woman — who criticised Lawrence's Mother every chance she got — or as Pfeiffer. Either way, Lawrence's experience on set was anything but smooth-sailing, considering that she also dislocated a rib from hyperventilating during a scene.
"It was a tent that had pictures of the Kardashians and Keeping Up with the Kardashians playing on a loop — and gumballs," she explained to Vogue. "My happy place."
No weird looks allowed.
