Jennifer Lawrence, the talented actor who has won an Oscar for her performances, is ready to tickle your funny bone in the upcoming raunchy comedy “No Hard Feelings.”
In an interview with Sky News, Lawrence expressed her excitement about bringing laughter to audiences. She acknowledged that making a comedy without offending anyone is a challenging task. She confidently stated that “No Hard Feelings” might offend everyone in some way, and she jokingly said, “You’re welcome.”
The movie, rated R in the U.S. and 15 in the U.K., features Lawrence in the role of a Montauk Uber driver facing financial difficulties. She finds herself in an unusual situation when she responds to a Craigslist ad to date and seduce an awkward 19-year-old named Andrew Barth Feldman. The young man’s overprotective parents do not want him to leave for college as a virgin.
Andrew Barth Feldman, who plays the teenager, shared his thoughts on the film’s potentially controversial content. He believes it is important for society to be able to confront and engage with offensive material. He mentioned that there was a period of overcorrection in comedy due to the realization that certain subjects should not be joked about. However, he feels that “No Hard Feelings” strikes a balance by pushing boundaries while still addressing the wrongness of the characters’ actions.
Lawrence also discussed the nature of comedy, drawing inspiration from old-time comedies. She explained that mean-spirited humor is not truly funny, except when it involves making fun of oneself. She expressed satisfaction with the way the movie handled its comedic elements and found a way to navigate humor without making people feel bad about themselves.
The film is directed by Gene Stupnitsky, known for his work on the raunchy comedy “Good Boys” and his involvement in writing films like “Bad Teacher” and “Year One.” Stupnitsky collaborates with John Phillips on the script for “No Hard Feelings.”
Jennifer Lawrence, widely recognized for her portrayal of Katniss Everdeen in “The Hunger Games” series, won an Academy Award for Best Actress for her performance in “The Silver Linings Playbook.” In a recent interview with Variety, she expressed her willingness to reprise her role as Katniss if given the opportunity.
“No Hard Feelings” is scheduled for release on June 21 in the U.K. and June 23 in the U.S. Audiences can anticipate a mix of raunchy humor, talented performances, and thought-provoking conversations about offensive content in this upcoming comedy.
