Jennifer Lawrence talked about her experience working in a movie led by an all-female team

Jennifer Lawrence once revealed her working experience in Causeway and described it as ‘incredible‘. The actress said that there was not a lot of toxicity and sarcastic remarks among many other things. She said,

“The schedule made sense. There were no huge fights. If an actor had a personal thing and wanted to leave early, there were no sarcastic responses like ‘Oh, well, we all love to leave early.’ We would put our heads together and say ‘How can we figure this out?’ We disagreed, but we’d listen to each other’s points of view.”
