Jennifer Lawrence says method actors make her 'nervous'

The actor says she wouldn't know how to talk to her co-stars if they were method actors

Jennifer Lawrence is undoubtedly up there with the greats, but while you might think nothing could phase The Hunger Games star, you'd be wrong.

Despite having starred among some of the most famous and well-respected names in the game, J-Law has admitted there's one kind actor she couldn't see herself working with.

While appearing on Hot Ones, the Don't Look Up star sobbed in spice-related pain as she confessed she'd feel uncomfortable working with a method actor.

"I would be nervous to work with somebody who is method. I would have no idea how to talk to them. Do I have to be in character? That would make me nervous," she admitted.

"I haven’t seen another [acting] process that I’ve been curious about. You don’t know about them all the time."

Of course, Lawrence did star alongside Christian Bale in American Hustle, but she said Bale's acting process is not to be method 24/7, but rather to get into character before cameras start rolling.

"I had always been very on-off, on-off until I did American Hustle and worked with Christian Bale," she explained.

"I noticed when the camera started rolling and the crew started preparing, like 10 seconds to action, he would start getting ready. I saw that and thought, 'That seems like a really good idea'. So, I started doing that."

It makes a lot of sense, but it's no secret that method acting is a divisive subject in Hollywood; something which hasn't gone unnoticed by Andrew Garfield.

The Spiderman star famously deprived himself of food and sex while preparing for his role as a Jesuit priest in Martin Scorsese's Silence, but he doesn't believe people have a true grasp of what method acting actually means.

Speaking on Marc Maron's WTF podcast, Garfield said: "There [have] been a lot of misconceptions about what method acting is, I think.

"People are still acting in that way, and it’s not about being an a**hole to everyone on set. It’s actually just about living truthfully under imagined circumstances, and being really nice to the crew simultaneously, and being a normal human being, and being able to drop it when you need to and staying in it when you want to stay in it."

The actor went on to say he was 'kind of bothered' by the misconception and the idea that it's 'f***ing b***s**t'.

"No, I don’t think you know what method acting is if you’re calling it b***s**t, or you just worked with someone who claims to be a method actor who isn’t actually acting the method at all," he continued.

"It’s also very private. I don’t want people to see the f***ing pipes of my toilet. I don’t want them to see how I’m making the sausage."
