CNN released this important footage Friday of three seconds of Jennifer Lawrence playing Desdemona as a 14-year-old. After a few months of acting classes, JLaw appeared in the play at the Walden Theatre in Louisville, KY.
If your first thought was, "Jennifer Lawrence does not exactly seem made for Shakespeare," you are correct. At the very least, Othello-dependent, strangleable Desdemona seems like the wrong role, right? She needs a role that requires a bow and arrow.
But she does sing adorably, and hey, it's Jennifer Lawrence. If this was three seconds of her making stupid faces in the mirror, we would enjoy it. Actually, we would love that. Is that a thing?
