Jennifer Lawrence's First Movie Director Praises Her Talent & Success

Jennifer Lawrence looks super summer-y in white as she visit a pal on Sunday afternoon (June 21) in Malibu, Calif.

The 24-year-old actress was recently praised by the director of her first feature film, 2008′s The Poker House.

“When we were doing A League of Their Own, [Robert] De Niro, who was good friends with Penny [Marshall, the director] was doing This Boy’s Life,’” Lori Petty told MTV. “And he goes, ‘You got to see this kid.’ So we go over to the editing room, and it was Leonardo [DiCaprio], and I was like, ‘That motherf-cker. That – Oh my god.’ So I felt like that when I saw Jennifer‘s tape. I just knew she was a movie star.”

Lori continued, “I’m so happy for her and her success.”

  • i love people

    She is otherworldly special but also surprsingly normal too . She is freakishly authentic even in one of the most inauthentic world of hollywood and she has not a single vain bone in her body…..
