It had been two and a half years since Jennifer Lawrence walked a red carpet, now she has done it again to present “Don’t Look Up” alongside stars like Leonardo DiCaprio and Meryl Streep. And it has been a different and special red carpet for the actress, because for the first time she has shown her pregnancy in public.
It was last September that the news of Lawrence’s pregnancy broke. In October, some photographs of her walking in the middle of the street confirmed her condition, which she has never wanted to announce or comment. And Sunday, December 5, was when the Oscar winner definitely walked her pregnancy. She did it dressed in a gold Dior design.

At the premiere of her new project, Lawrence, avoided making statements to the media about her pregnancy. However, she did talk about it in a recent interview with the Vanity Fair publication in its US edition, whose November issue she starred in, posing for its cover. Then, she explained that she did not intend to share anything of her future child with the outside world, much less with the press.
“If I was at a dinner party and someone said to me, ‘Come on, you’re expecting a baby,’ I wasn’t going to say something like: ‘My God, I’m not going to talk about it, get away from me, psycho!’ But all my instincts want to protect her privacy for the rest of her life, as much as possible. I don’t want anyone to feel welcome to be a part of their existence. And I feel like that starts with not including it in this part of my work“, she said.
“Don’t Look Up”, which will premiere Netflix on December 24, it is her new and awaited project, and of which she recently confessed that she recorded a scene drugged, after smoking marijuana. Her character in her tape, Kate Dibiasky, was “really high” she recounted at a press conference a few weeks ago.
“I know what you’re going to say, and I wasn’t pregnant at the time. I think so, let no one tell my mother-in-law. Because my character was taking drugs in the movie. I was being singled out, really. Everyone was bothering me. I guess because I was high. Someone easy to bother“, Lawrence admitted.
