Jennifer Lawrence insists David O. Russell is one of her "closest friends."
The 24-year-old actress has hit back at rumours she got into a heated argument with the director on the set of their upcoming movie, 'Joy,' in Boston on Tuesday (24.02.15).
The Oscar winner addressed the "terrible" speculation in a rare message on her Facebook page on Friday (27.02.15), writing: "David O. Russell is one of my closest friends and we have an amazing collaborative working relationship. I adore this man and he does not deserve this tabloid malarkey. This movie is going great and I'm having a blast making it!"
The blonde beauty also admitted she doesn't use social media on a regular basis because she can "barely work email."
A source told gossip website TMZ.com that the 56-year-old filmmaker, who has previously worked on 'Silver Linings Playbook' and 'American Hustle' with Jennifer, allegedly screamed at her on set and later ordered producer Harvey Weinstein to leave when showed up unannounced.
But a spokesperson for the movie's studio, Fox 2000, insisted David was merely helping Jennifer to get into the right frame of mind for an intense scene.
Bradley Cooper is also starring in the upcoming film.
