Paramount Pictures defends Mother! after awful opening

Jennifer Lawrence reveals she's taking a two-year break from acting – to take up pottery

Lawrence, who's now dating "Mother!" director Darren Aronofsky, 48, said she didn't always feel that way.

"She was laughing at me so hard, 'You don't know who the Kardashians are?' Like she was talking to me about Einstein", Bardem said. So what he's saying is this is the entire world, This is our one earth.

In the film, Lawrence and husband Javier Bardem see their tranquil lives upended when strangers Ed Harris and Michelle Pfeiffer show up at their country home. It could be that Lawrence is simply becoming too over-exposed at this point, or perhaps prospective audiences are exhausted of her injecting politics into her promotional interviews.

It fully earns its R18 rating, which I mean both as high praise and a quiet word of caution to anyone expecting a routine horror/psychological thriller/biblical allegory/Jennifer Lawrence star vehicle etc., etc. Folks, this is the real deal. So, who better to explain the film's deeper layer than director Darren Aronofsky himself?

It's heartbreaking for my pals at Paramount who did everything they could to market this movie.

Jennifer Lawrence, 27, looked radiant and confident when we talked to her in Toronto for her controversial psychological horror film, "Mother!".

He told MTV News, "She told me once about the Kardashians".

The actress of the new drama from Darren Aronofski Mother! It collected a disappointing $3.1 million on the opening day for a projected $8 million weekend, the worst in Lawrence's career.

"I've been a fan, so once he told me the ideas floating around in his head I said yes", Lawrence said of Aronofksy. "Presently I find out about their identity, yet at the time, I didn't know their identity", Bardem revealed to MTV News reporter Josh Horowitz at the NY squeeze day for the film.

With that in mind, and including his newest movie in the mix, it's time to make some sort of sense of the fascinating filmmaker's output so far.

From the beginning of the movie, we start feeling a unusual atmosphere in the environment of the characters.
