Jennifer Lawrence, Interim New Englander, Is Still Puffy-Coat Chic

She and Robert De Niro were chummy, wine-drinking buddies on the set of Joy shooting out in Lynn on Tuesday.

Boston’s reigning queen of blasé Jennifer Lawrence is still in Massachusetts shooting David O. Russell’s Joy, and she, like the rest of us, is still really cold. When photographed filming out at the Seaport Landing marina in Lynn, J.Law sported the attire of a fierce New Englander with a heavy coat, gloves, and oversized sunnies. Lawrence, an out-of-state transplant taking a page from our book, is choosing her gear wisely.

According to the Daily Item, Lawrence and Robert De Niro were on the waterfront shooting a scene complete with “movie-theater-size” screens and spotlights set up on the docks. The movie, which follows the rise of a woman who created her own business empire with the invention of the Miracle Mop, is reportedly being filmed in a “closed set.” The scene they’re shooting, however, is a “pivotal” one involving Joy spilling red wine on one boat’s expensive teak deck, thus resolving to find the ultimate cleaning product.

The Item also reports that HBO producers were in the same area shooting its Salem witch trial drama, The Devil You Know, and Johnny Depp’s Whitey Bulger pic, Black Mass, shot a few scenes there last year, too. So far, Joy has filmed in several towns outside of Boston including Wilmington, North Reading, and Framingham.

Bradley Cooper also stars with Lawrence and De Niro, and with director Russell, they’re the complete foursome behind Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle. The latter was filmed around Massachusetts back in 2013. Isabella Rossellini, Diane Ladd, and Orange Is the New Black breakout star Dascha Polanco are also part of the supporting cast.

While Joy has been camped out around Hub Hollywood for weeks, a Matt Damon-produced indie, Manchester-by-the-Sea, recently started shooting on the North Shore. Actors Kyle Chandler and Casey Affleck are tied to the lead roles.
