Jennifer Lawrence Is an ‘Old Lady Who Looks Really Young & Hot’ in Funny or Die Trailer

Jennifer Lawrence is the oldest young woman you know, according to Funny or Die.

A new fake trailer from the comedy video site pokes fun at the age disparity between Lawrence and her characters in David O. Russell’s films. She’s collaborated with the filmmaker on three movies — all of which required her to play women almost twice her age. A 25-year-old Lawrence plays a 40-year-old mother of three in “Joy,” her latest pic; the then 23-year-old Lawrence played the mother of a 5-year-old and the wife of 39-year-old Christian Bale in “American Hustle”; and the then 21-year-old actress played a widow and 38-year-old Bradley Cooper’s girlfriend in “Silver Linings Playbook.”

So it’s only natural that she’ll play a “really, really old lady who still looks totally young and hot” in her next movie, according to the video. “This spring, get ready to see Jennifer Lawrence play her oldest character yet: An 89-year-old woman that looks like she’s 16,” the voiceover says.

The rest of the cast includes her former costars Donald Sutherland as her boyfriend and Robert DeNiro as her great-grandson.

DeNiro, who Lawrence starred alongside in all three aforementioned Russell films, plays Lawrence’s father in “Joy.” However, art may be imitating art soon as Lawrence told Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan during a recent appearance on “Live! With Kelly and Michael” that she could be taking on the role of De Niro’s mom in an upcoming Russell project.

“David is making something right now and the plan, so far, is for me to play Bob De Niro’s mother,” Lawrence said in mid December. “I think that the more people give him crap about me being too young for his parts, he’s like, ‘Oh yeah, watch this’ — so we’ll see.”

Russell himself has said in the past that he (like Harvey Weinstein) initially thought Lawrence was too young for the role of Tiffany in the dark romantic comedy “Silver Linings” — distributed by The Weinstein Company — but she changed their minds with her Skype audition.
