Jennifer Lawrence Breaks Silence Over 'Passengers' Backlash

'I wish I'd looked into it deeper before jumping on.'

Jennifer Lawrence has admitted there are things she would do differently, with regards to her controversial film, ‘Passengers’.

The sci-fi romance was largely panned upon its release last year, with some feminist critics comparing its major storyline - which saw Chris Pratt’s character waking Jennifer’s up from hypersleep - to an abusive relationship.

In a new interview with Vogue, the Oscar-winning star has opened up about the backlash for the first time, admitting that she’s “disappointed in herself” over the film.

She explained: I’m disappointed in myself that I didn’t spot it. I thought the script was beautiful — it was this tainted, complicated love story.”

However, she did defend ‘Passengers’, insisting: “It definitely wasn’t a failure. I’m not embarrassed by it by any means. There was just stuff that I wished I’d looked into deeper before jumping on.”

Earlier this year, co-star Chris Pratt said of the controversy: “[The backlash] was definitely a lesson… I’ll be curious to see if it holds up — the criticism and the movie.”

He also said he was standing by the film, adding: “I’m proud of how the movie turned out and it did just fine to make money back for the studio… it is what it is and I’m proud of it.”
