The 22-year-old actress became the second youngest actress to ever be nominated for the Best Actress Oscar for her role in 2010 film 'Winter's Bone' and she hopes her new romantic comedy, helmed by David O'Russell, will earn her a second nod at the ceremony next year.
She admitted: "Whenever the first review comes out, it's like, 'Yay! S**t!" It's always laced with a hint of dread. 'Winter's Bone' was a very stressful time, but it was also an incredible time. I would love that to happen for this movie, so I don't want David to read, 'Jennifer doesn't want to get nominated, don't vote for her!' "
The 'Hunger Games' star was excited to team up with 'I Heart Huckabees' director David for his his new comedy - in which she plays neurotic Tiffany opposite Bradley Cooper's character Pat - and she was left flabbergasted by the end result as she had been expecting something much darker.
In an interview with the new issue of Empire magazine, Jennifer said: "I'm a huge fan of David's ... His brain fires off in a million different directions. Normally after filming you know what to expect, but with this I was so surprised. When I read it, it was sarcastic and kind of a dark dramatic comedy. Then when I saw it, it had this heart-warming, almost holiday movie element."
