Jennifer Lawrence has been in several bold films, and the upcoming “mother!” looks to be her most dramatic yet. Lawrence’s personal taste in movies might be a bit lighter than the dark roles she sometimes dives into, but there are plenty of quality picks and great directors involved. From Woody Allen to Spike Jonze, she definitely has a taste for auteurs — but has no shame in reccomending some rom com favorites as well. Take a look at some of her favorite films that she’s mentioned in interviews through the years.
Lawrence said in a 2012 interview that one of her all-time favorites is this iconic Peter Bogdanovich film.
“‘Harold and Maude’ is a classic that I love,” Lawrence said in a 2012 interview.
Lawrence cited this John Cassavetes classic as a favorite in a 2012 interview.
“‘Planes, Trains and Automobiles.’ That’s a great movie—I won’t make excuses for that one,” Lawrence said in a 2013 interview.
“I just watched that for the 50th time,” Lawrence told Vanity Fair in 2013.
“I love anything by the Coen brothers, so having to choose one movie is hard, but I think ‘The Big Lebowski’ [is my favorite]” she said in a 2012 interview.
“‘Bridget Jones’s Diary’ is the one that, no matter when it’s on, I will watch it. Anytime,” Lawrence said in a 2013 interview.
Lawrence cited this Will Ferrell vehicle as a favorite in a 2012 interview.
“Sofia Coppola is one of my favorite directors. I just love that she allows for time in her movies,” she said in a 2013 interview.
“I love ‘I Heart Huckabees.’ I think that might be my favorite comedy. And I know it’s weird, because every time I tell people that, they’re like, ‘Oh, I’ll have to see it.’ And I say, ‘You know, you might not like it,’ because it’s just so weird. But I loved it. I was obsessed with it when I first saw it; I watched it four times in one week,” she said in a 2012 interview.
“‘Midnight in Paris,’ I saw this year, and I was just blown away. I think it might be my favorite movie now. I loved it. It was funny, it was inventive, imagination and dresses and all of our favorite writers. Owen Wilson was hilarious. It was just perfection,” she said in a 2012 interview.
