Jennifer Lawrence dazzles at premiere of new thriller

Jennifer Lawrence dazzled in a strapless gold gown as she attended the premiere of her new thriller “Don’t Look Up.”

The 27-year-old Oscar winner took the plunge in the number by Salvatore Ferragamo.

Dressed as if it was 2019, Lawrence capped off her look with a blunt bob and sparkling diamond stud earrings.

Lawrence stunned on the red carpet at the Alice Tully Hall.

During the evening, the actress confessed she is eager to try new projects.

“There are so many things that I want to do but they’re all kind of tiring to do because you just have to know that you’re going to do great things if you want to do something of that caliber,” she told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour.

Lawrence signed on to play Crazy Rich Asians author Kevin Kwan’s mother in “Crazy Rich Asians.”

“Crazy Rich Asians” is slated to be released August 15.

During the special New York Film Festival premiere, Lawrence was joined by the film’s director Jon M. Chu.

The movie is based on Kevin Kwan’s bestselling novel of the same name.

Steve Carell, Michelle Yeoh, Oliver Platt, Gemma Chan, Awkwafina, Nico Santos, Benjamin Lin and Julia Jones also star in the movie.

“It’s a book that I grew up reading and having so much love for, but I hadn’t had any interaction with Kevin Kwan or the people, and so I was nervous,” Lawrence told MTV. “But they kind of smashed my fears. When you read these stories about the world, it’s a daily experience of being poor or rich, of having a lot of people in your life, but it’s often just at a distance from you and that was what was so exciting about the book, that it was so in-your-face.”

Producers John Penotti and Stephen Gyllenhaal and Sony Pictures Entertainment Chairmen Tom Rothman and Michael Lynton also attended the gala screening and after party.

The film is set to screen at the New York Film Festival on Thursday evening.
