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.

Russell Crowe Starts Unnecessary Twitter Campaign For Master And Commander 2

Filed under: Film FlickersRussell CroweTwitter

russell crowe starts twitter campaign for master and commander 2

Did anyone even see the first movie, which had the way-too-long title Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World?

Either this movie has some sort of massive following that we're unaware of, or Russell Crowe is just kidding himself, but for some reason Crowe has decided to start a Twitter campaign for a sequel to the movie.

We wonder what the title would be for the second one? Could they possibly make it even longer? Maybe they could call it Master and Commander: An Even Farther Side Of The World That We Were Previously Unaware Of.

Here's what Crowe tweeted in an effort to gain support from fans for a Master and Commander sequel:

"If you want a Master and Commander sequel I suggest you e-mail Tom Rothman at Fox and let him know your thoughts"

We're gonna sit this one out, Russell, but we wish you luck! Maybe you'll surprise us, and next time we go on IMDB, we'll see a listing for Master and Commander: A Side Of The World That's So Far Away, That It's Stopped Being Far Away, And Now It's Close Again.

Will U support Russell Crowe's Twitter campaign for M & C 2?
