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.”
