Gene Stupnitsky revealed before the release of the film No Hard Feelings, that he got the film’s plot idea from a Craigslist ad. The 45-year-old director revealed that the moment he saw the ad, he knew Jennifer Lawrence was the right person for the role. The ad was sent to him by No Hard Feelings producers Marc Provissiero and Naomi Odenkirk. While talking about the Craigslist ad, the Bad Teacher director said,

“I read it, and I thought, ‘This is wild. Who is the woman that answers this ad?’And I thought, ‘Oh, that’ll be a great role for my friend Jennifer Lawrence.’”

When the Red Sparrow actress first heard about the ad, she said that she died laughing. Lawrence explained that the whole script was created after they read the funny ad. The Mother actress said,

“Gene read the Craigslist ad to me, and I died laughing. I thought it was hilarious, but there wasn’t a script or anything. I just thought he had a funny idea. And then a couple of years later, he handed me the funniest script I’ve ever read in my life.”

The film is entertaining and contains numerous things to which young people and others will be able to connect. Lawrence’s film has done extremely well since its premiere, with a total box office collection of $26.2 million.
