I wouldn’t mind working with this young girl who works in David O. Russell’s pictures, Jennifer Lawrence. I think I could probably do something with her—or she would do something with me, is really what the story would be. I would gain more than she would gain…because when you work with these wonderful actors or actresses, they give you far more than you can. I can only supply them with the part, but you hire a Cate Blanchett, and she brings the part alive. If you hire a lesser actress, the part remains written the same way, but it never gets off the ground the same way.
