Find Out Why Jennifer Lawrence Walked Away From The Rosie Project Even After Offering To Cut Her Fee For The Part!

Sony was just too slow.

It's a classic case of "you snooze, you lose."

Last month — on the same day that Jennifer Lawrence published an essay about the gender wage gap in Hollywood — the blonde beauty walked away from a part in The Rosie Project.

Now, we're learning why the 25-year-old bailed on the Sony romantic comedy.

Right from the get-go, studio chairman Tom Rothman made it clear he didn't want to shell out $20 million on Jen, which is what Sony had just offered the blonde beauty for her part in Passengers.

But because the Kentucky native really wanted to work with director Richard Linklater, she agreed to take a pay cut for the role.

However, it wasn't the smaller paycheck that caused the Hunger Games star to bow out. A source revealed that the negotiations took too long, and the actress had gotten frustrated, saying:

"Rothman was doing a lot of grinding on The Rosie Project, and it took its toll. If it had been done more quickly, it wouldn't have fallen apart."

And although Richard's contract had been ironed out pretty quickly, he stepped away from the project when the young celeb did, because she was the one who pursued him and got him on board.

It'll be interesting to see what happens with this film, now that it's lost its leading lady and director.

Richard Linklater Demands The Stage As He Wins The Critics' Choice Award For Best Director!

And just like that, one of the biggest awards at the Critics' Choice Movie Awards is gone!

But that's only because Richard Linklater won it!

The man behind Boyhood won the award for Best Director, and we have to say, none of the other pieces could really compare to his 12-year project.

It's seriously one of a kind!

To win the honor, Richard beat out Wes Anderson for The Grand Budapest Hotel, Ava DuVernay for Selma, David Fincher for Gone Girl, Alejandro G. Inarritu for Birdman, and Angelina Jolie for Unbroken.

Congrats again, Richard!

Ch-ch-check out his unjustly rushed acceptance speech (above)!!!
