Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper co-star in the film “Silver Linings Playbook.” While gearing up for their roles, the two had to partake in hours of grueling dance lessons with choreographer Mandy Moore.
Moore states, “They were really, really good. From the first hour of their first day, their chemistry was easy to deal with. They were very kind to one another, but laughed a lot. I never felt any sort of frustration between either of them. Together they were a great team.”
Moore talked about Lawrence’s apprehension. “One of the first things Jennifer said to me was, ‘I’m not a dancer. You’re never going to be able to get me to dance.’ And I thought, ‘Yeah right, sister. We’re going to make sure we make this happen.’ ” She continued, “Jennifer needed a lot of repetition, and I had to be very specific with her. [But by] the night we wrapped, both of them were like, ‘Oh, my god, I want to dance again! This is really, really fun.’”
“Silver Linings Playbook” is in theaters now.
