There was once a possibility that Jennifer Lawrence could have two movies coming out this holiday season – she met with writer/director Quentin Tarantino to discuss starring in his new movie The Hateful Eight!
Ultimately, the role went to actress Jennifer Jason Leigh as J.Law was too busy and also too young for the part.
“I can see her doing a good job with this role, so we went to talk about it and everything,” Quentin told Entertainment Weekly. “She was just doing me a courtesy to see me, I think. She was doing Joy. She had to do all this publicity on the Hunger Games movies. There was just no f—ing way in the world that she was available.”
“Having said that, I’m glad I didn’t cast somebody that young. I think I absolutely positively made the right choice, as far as the ages of the characters,” he added.
Both Jennifers are getting Oscar buzz for their work in Joy and The Hateful Eight!
