During a discussion panel in the past, the Passengers star talked about what it was like to rise through the ranks in the film business and what kind of challenges she faced along the way. Here, she also recalled the hardships she had to go through to get her first major role in the aforementioned film. She explained that despite the casting director’s rejection of her, she went in again, sparsely disguised so he may not notice her again. She said:

“When Winter’s Bone turned me down, they were doing LA casting that I went to, and then they were like, ‘no thank you.’ Then, they opened up casting in New York, and I flew to New York and just kind of re-entered like a stranger. I think they know that they had seen me before, but maybe they were just scared at that point.”

Whether it may be the dedication that she had shown for the role or it might be because she brought her A game this time, nonetheless, Lawrence bagged the lead role, and the rest is history.

When the sheriff comes to their home one day and informs them that her father had put their house for sale, it pushes Ree to seek out her father and end the slowly oncoming misery.
