Jennifer Lawrence on the Set of “Joy”

Posted on February 20, 2015

We still can’t wrap our heads around the idea of a movie about the creator of the Miracle Mop and Huggable Hangers. Not that we know all that much about Joy Mangano’s life and whether it warrants the treatment, but it strikes us that this one’s going to require some very precise marketing.

And we have an even harder time picturing Jennifer Lawrence in the part. Forget the fact that anyone who’s ever watched HSN can tell you she looks and sounds nothing like Joy; it’s the whole “single mom in the ’70s” angle that feels like an ill fit. Then again, we’re the two people who thought she was wildly miscast and in way over her head in American Hustle.
