Jennifer Lawrence Calls Out Bryan Singer's 'Hissy Fits'

Jennifer Lawrence and Bryan Singer

The Causeway actress took a jab at emotional male directors.

The Hollywood Reporter's annual "Actress Roundtables" always stir up some drama.

But this year's roundtable -- with Jennifer Lawrence, Michelle Yeoh, Emma Corrin, Michelle Williams, Claire Foy, and Danielle Deadwyler -- yielded a particularly satisfying remark from Jennifer Lawrence.

"It was just so interesting to be on a female-led movie," said Lawrence of her latest film Causeway, directed by Lila Neugebauer.

"The schedule made sense. There were no huge fights. If an actor had a personal thing, instead of going, 'well, we'd all love to leave early,' we'd put our heads together and go, 'ok, how can we figure this out?'"

"It was incredible to not be around toxic masculinity -- to get a little break from it. And it did always just make us laugh about how we ended up with, 'Women shouldn't be in roles like this because we're so emotional.'"

"I mean, I've worked with Bryan Singer," said Lawrence to guffaws from the other actresses. "I've seen emotional men. I've seen the biggest hissy fits thrown on set."

Lawrence has starred in three of Singer's X-Men films: First Class, Days of Future Past, and Apocalypse.

She's not the only one to remark on Singer's bad behavior. X-Men's Halle Berry revealed to Variety that "Bryan's not the easiest dude to work with."

Bohemian Rhapsody's Rami Malek told Vanity Fair that his experience working with the director "was not pleasant, not at all."

In 2017, Singer was fired from Bohemian Rhapsody just weeks before the film was due to wrap.

Two years later, in 2019, the Atlantic published an expose of Singer's sexual assault allegations by multiple underage men. Singer denied everything, calling it a "homophobic smear piece."
