I MEAN, OF ALL TIME.>>PLEASE, COME?>>THE FILM IS CALLED “MOTHER.” JENNIFER LAWRENCE AND JAVIER BARDEM PLAY A MARRIED COUPLE IN A SEEMINGLY NICE LIFE BEFORE A SERIESSERIES OF VISITORS DISRUP THEM. THE REST OF THE PLOT IS KEPT SECRET. IN A WAY, YOU NEED A KEY, ROSETTA STONE OR DECODER RING.>>YOU CAN GOOGLE ANY OF MY INTERVIEWS, AND I HAVE SPILLED THE ALLEGORY IN ALMOST ALL OF THEM.>>YOUR CHARACTER IS NAMED MOTHER, AND PEOPLE SAY THAT THAT IS MEANT TO REPRESENT MOTHER NATURE. I DON’T WANT TO GIVE A PLOT LINE AWAY, BUT IT DOES NOT END WELL FOR MOTHER. SO IS IT KIND OF A STATEMENT ON ENVIRONMENTAL ISSUES?>>YEAH. IT’S — I MEAN –>>IS IT LARGER THAN THAT, OF HUMANITY?>>IT IS EVERYTHING. BEFORE THE MOVIE WAS CALLED “MOTHER,” IT WAS CALLED “DAY SIX.” GOD CREATED THE WORLD IN SIX DAYS. TO ME, IT IS THE BEGINNING AND THE END, WHICH WE HAVE NOT REACHED YET. THE END OF THE UNIVERSE. SO IN THAT, THERE’S THE CREATION OF MAN, THERE’S THE CREATION OF RELIGION. THAT HOUSE AND I ARE ONE>>THE HOUSE HAS A HEART BEAT. I JUST GOT THAT.>>YEAH, I DID, TOO.>>WHAT WERE YOU DOING IN THEIR LUGGAGE?>>WHEN YOU READ THE SCRIPT, WHAT WAS YOUR REACTION?>>I WAS LIKE, I DON’T WANT THIS IN MY HOME. IT’S AN ASSAULT. IT IS REALLY ASSAULTING. THAT’S WHAT MAKES IT A MASTERPIECE. THAT’S WHAT MAKES DARREN SO BRILLIANT.>>DARREN IS THE DIRECTOR AND JENNIFER’S BOYFRIEND, DARREN A ARONOFSKY. IT HAS LAWRENCE EXPLORING DEEP DEPTHS.>>NOBODY SHOULD FEEL WHAT YOU SEE IN THE MOVIE. YEAH, IT WAS HARD. I HAD TO LISTEN TO CHRISTMAS MUSIC COMING OUT OF THAT.>>I ALSO HEARD YOU WATCHED THE KARDASHIANS TO JUST –>>I DID. I HAD A KARDASHIAN TENT. I DIDN’T END UP USING THE KARDASHIANS.

THE INTENTION WAS THE INSATIABLE NEED OF HUMANITY. BUT I THINK THAT DOES GO HAND IN HAND WITH FAME. FAME SHINES A HUGE LIGHT ON THAT PART OF PEOPLE. WE FEEL SO ENTITLED TO EVERYTHING. WHEN I’M GETTING PHOTOGRAPHED, JUST WALKING TO STARBUCKS, I’M LIKE, WHY DOES — WHY DO YOU FEEL ENTITLED TO THIS?>>WHAT IS THE FLIP SIDE OF THAT, TO BE THE SUBJECT OF IT?>>ANGRY. NO.>>HONESTLY, BECAUSE IT FEELS STRANGE AND PROBABLY INTRUSIVE.>>IT TOOK MANY YEARS FOR ME TO — I WAS ANGRY AND RESENTFUL BECAUSE I THOUGHT I DESERVED THE RIGHT TO DO WHAT I LOVE AND DO MY JOB AND HAVE PRIVACY. AFTER A FEW YEARS, YOU’RE LIKE, BUT THAT’S NOT THE WAY IT IS. IT’S NOT. IT IS IMPORTANT TO KEEP A SEPARATION AND KNOW THE PEOPLE WHO ARE SCREAMING OUTSIDE OF A PREMIERE, THEY’RE SCREAMING BECAUSE OF A JOB AND BECAUSE OF CHARACTER. I DON’T GO HOME AND AM LIKE, DID YOU HEAR HOW MUCH THEY LOVE ME? I DON’T PUT STOCK IN IT. I’M GRATEFUL TO THEM BECAUSE WITHOUT FANS AND PEOPLE GOING TO SEE MY MOVIE, I WOULDN’T BE ABLE TO DO WHAT I LOVE.>>YOU’VE DONE A MOVIE — AT LEAST ONE MOVIE EVERY YEAR SINCE 2010.

  1. "Boo hoo hoo so you lost your homes in those hurricanes, Should have thought twice before you voted" – Jennifer Lawrence

  2. JLo is only 27
    Why does she keep playing those older characters?
    What has she left for herself when she's in her 30s and 40s lol
    Hunger games is the only exception I think

  3. I know that she truly did suffer and went through a lot while filming this movie so I praise her for her work and sacrifice for this film.

  4. "I don't want to give the plot line away but it does not end well for mother" – a person who just gave the plot line away.

  5. "… I don't want to give a plot line away but … " and then interviewer goes ahead and reveals a pretty significant plot line! wtf savannah?

  6. Jennifer Lawrence needs to stick to making movies and stay out of politics and real world issues altogether. Leftist views have no place in the real world. I'm so proud to be of the silent majority! MAGA!

  7. You have lost a lot of fans due to your stupid political views… maybe you should stick to acting… I hear you are pretty good…

  8. "Mother" was a fine and artsy movie. But as far as horror-haven't been so disappointed in a long time.‬ I'm very bored of art movies pretending to be horror movies. I love them once in a while, but I really want a unique, disturbing movie not based on a book or a remake, good luck huh? LOL! I was hoping for a horror movie-I got a big movie about religious allegories. Yeah. It's a good movie for sure and I appreciate how different it was. However, when I go to a horror movies-I'd like to be scared and I'd like a movie that makes sense. I think I'll re-watch "Black Swan" and "The Witch." Both awesome horror movies with art-house themes.

  9. Mother earth does not exist in the bible… So failure 1 right there. 2nd failure anti Christian, Jewish, Muslim hate film produced by atheists. The film is offensive, defames and blasphemes God, great way for her to end her career, since most of the world has some sort of faith.

  10. Lawrence's drunken interview with Seth Myers was a disaster and full of wine. I'm surprised that Kathie Lee and Hoda didn't offer this drunk some of their wine for this interview despite the fact that Savannah is the one giving the questions. It's time for Jennifer to seek rehab!

  11. It's not even a horror film to be honest, it's a movie of about symbolism. Jennifer is Mother Earth, Javier is God, and there is Kain and Able, Jesus, and just a whole lot of symbolism about the wrongs of humanity

  12. Jennifer admits she doesn't like interacting with her fans. She thinks the flood victims got what they deserved, because they voted for Trump. Give away the plot so I don't have to watch movie.

  13. So she says she doesn't want to ruin it "but it doesn't end well for mother" are you kidding me? GREAT! Thanks for the "heads up"

  14. People, stop saying this movie is a flop. Today this has 13.580.000 just in the USA and some countries. Is not wide yet (China, Russia, Spain, Mexico, Corea, Brasil, etc.) and this just has some days. Does not even have a week on cinemas

  15. This movie deserves more recognition. The performances (actors) were incredible, the plot is very original and interesting. The cinematography is really beyond words with that camara 16mm . You always will feel fear and more. It´s an art house movie

  16. "9/11 is God's judgement on America for its sins." Jerry Falwell 2001

    "These hurricanes are mother nature's wrath against America for voting for Trump." Jennifer Lawrence 2017

    Different people, same fuckwit ideology.

  17. No US president is responsible for buying a family a new place to live, The government needs to keep their hands out of our pockets except for Military, the gas (hwy fuel usage tax) covers our fixing and rebuilding roads and the public school system is a joke, so is the US post office etc. If you can't afford homeowners insurance or flood insurance, you simply don't buy a home, buy a couple acres and build you a house.

  18. Well you're property taxes that you pay every year are suppose to pay for the schools and teachers but we know that's not happening.

  19. An that's why her and her Liberal Hollywood peers shouldn't be quoting things like religion. they don't respect it and their ALWAYS too political. SHE talks like she's in the Amityville House and like that script is just going to come at her and murder her in the middle of the night. I really isn't that bad for her and hers. hope she don't think her movie is gonna be a smash hit it looks like it may be okay but not legendary

  20. Stupid movie and no, it's not about mother nature, it's about Jennifer Lawrence being initiated into the satanic elite along with her other movie Red Sparrow to complete her initiation.

  21. Geez…….did someone kidnap Javier Bardem and FORCE him to be in this movie?!? An actor like Javier, wow, I never thought he would be in a bad movie. Bad pick on his part. He should have passed on this project. Again, worst…..movie……ever. Don't waste your time or your money.

  22. A masterpiece? LOL She is so full of herself. She should take a Hollywood break and live like a normal human with a job for a few years.

  23. This movie was such a flop. So much of a flop that her handlers want her to take 2yrs off for damage control. I like JLaw but she is getting slowly turned into a minon for leftists activist movie making. Which is why Hollywood is a flop at the box office also.

  24. Go see Mother! It's a wonderful, audacious, provocative, terrifying, devastating, weird, disturbing, unforgettable horror film! An absolute nightmare of an experience in the best way possible. Coming from a lifelong horror fan, mother! is one of the most unique I've seen. It certainly helped that two weeks before I saw this movie, I saw the popular Andres Muschietti-helmed IT, which most people loved. I dont understand how because I unusually hated it. It was so bad. So, to see Mother 2 weeks later really gave me the horror fix I needed. And needless to say, Jennifer Lawrence is one of modern times' greatest actresses. And her work in Mother, I would describe as, "astonishingly committed"!

  25. Hi Jennifer Lawrence, I just wanted you to know I think you have beautiful and luxurious hair. I’d love to be in a movie with you someday.

  26. Sad a lot of people will not see the Mother film for what it was. Powerful and debatable. It was more of Art . Hard to see and observe. People turning heads away from this movie are basically Turing heads away from the REAL big problem us as Living humans will face. Forget about religion , politics ,celebrates lives, etc . Keep our Earth turning as long as we can . Put back what we take

  27. she describes the movie as evil, something she wouldn't want in her own home yet she profits off evil- putting suggestion of evil out into the world-says who she is and describes who her fans are

  28. I’m happy that I never spent any of my money on the terrible movie Mother! and just spent it on other things that are better than a bad movie
