‘The Hunger Games’ actress struggled when she had to shoot scenes for her role as a dance expert in upcoming film ‘Silver Linings Playbook’ – based on author Matthew Quick’s best-seller – because she has no rhythm or co-ordination
Jennifer’s character Tiffany is a grieving widow who helps former teacher/mental institution patient Pat – played by Bradley Cooper – win back his wife. Only there is one condition, he has to partner her in a dance competition.
Jennifer told The Daily Mail newspaper: “I have two left feet, and I’m not exactly a graceful mover.
“Bradley’s the one who can dance – and he’s not supposed to know how to!”
The 22-year-old beauty didn’t expect to be offered the role, joking that she didn’t think they’d hire a “klutz”.However, she wowed director David O. Russell – who directed Oscar-winning film ‘The Fighter’ – with an audition conducted via internet video chat service Skype.
He said: “Jennifer did her audition on Skype from her parents’ home in Louisville.
“I knew she was Tiffany the moment I saw it. She was funny and she just has a quality about her.”
The film also stars Robert De Niro and Jacki Weaver as Pat’s parents and Julia Styles as his wife Veronica.
