Jennifer Lawrence covered many topics in her new Vanity fair interview – her pregnancy, her new movie Don’t look up, his two-year hiatus in Hollywood (“” everyone had tired of me “). But I want to talk about something important: Lawrence’s revelation that his favorite movie is Hereditary.
Yes, HereditaryThe Ari Aster horror movie that gave audiences nightmares and turned Toni Collette’s screaming face into a meme, is Lawrence’s favorite movie. He loves it so much, he has a water bottle decorated with Hereditary stickers. And for her 30th birthday, her husband Cooke Maroney hid a diamond necklace in a hardcover copy of the Hereditary screenplay. “It was so sweet,” she told the magazine. Because spoiler alert, who doesn’t want to be reminded of a brutal beheading on an important birthday?
Thinking back to Lawrence’s career, this choice, while still very unsettling to anyone (read: me) who flinches at the mention of horror, actually makes sense. I mean, this is the actor who became famous for playing a teenager turned mass murderer on the The Hunger Games trilogy and who starred Mother! It seems right that she has a dark side. And if it ever gets to be too much, you can always turn to your other favorite entertainment source: keeping up with the Kardashians and Real housewives.
