Jennifer Lawrence with Amy Adams and Bradley Cooper at the American Hustle photo call

Jennifer Lawrence stole the spotlight at the American Hustle photo call in NYC


Jennifer Lawrence was reunited with Bradley Cooper for a star-studded photo call in New York yesterday to promote her new movie, American Hustle.

The 23-year-old actress took centre stage at the Crosby Street Hotel while poor Bradley and Christian Bale barely got a look-in.

Dressed in a cobalt blue dress by Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge's favourite designer, Alexander McQueen, Lanvin shoes and Anita Co jewels, Jen showed off her newly-cropped and dyed blonde crop which she teamed with a bright red lip.

The new crime movie, which sees Jennifer play the character of Rosalyn, was directed by David O. Russell, who also took on Silver Linings Playbook and The Fighter. Jen plays Christian Bale's character's wife.

Talking about Jen's performance, David told USA Today: 'We've never seen her do a character like this. It was alive and freeing and fun, and she brought amazing energy to it. Her peculiar madness is her genius.

'Jennifer and I share a process on the set where we laugh and we stay loose. But when she goes in, it's on. It's deceptive to everyone around. She looks like she's goofing around and not paying attention. But she goes there. Magic happens.'

And what is why she's awesome. Despite Jen's spolight-stealing appearance at the photo call, she was noticeably absent at last night's New York premiere. perhaps she wanted to let the others have their moment...
