Jennifer Laurence opened up during a news conference with the director of Mother!, Darren Aronofsky, at the Toronto International Film Festival.
Here’s what she said was her reaction after reading the script:
“So once he told me the ideas floating around in his head, I said yes,” she said. “Then I got a script, and when I read it, I threw it across the room and told him he had severe psychological problems. But it’s a masterpiece.”
Laurence stars in the movie as the young wife of a poet who is tormented after an uninvited couple arrive at their doorstep.
