After The New York Times posted a profile of Lawrence, reporter Kyle Buchanan was the first to tweet about Lawrence’s departure from McKay’s upcoming film Bad Blood.
Lawrence’s departure isn’t due to a feud with the director, but rather to her admiration for the work of another actor.
Lawrence decided to abandon Adam McKay‘s take on Theranos founder Elizabeth Holmes’ case after witnessing the magic of Amanda Seyfried’s portrayal of Holmes in The Dropout, as per Buchanan’s report.
“I thought she was terrific.” Lawrence said. I was like, ‘Yeah, we don’t need to redo that.’ She did it.”
Lawrence took a break from her recent string of high-profile projects this year to star in Causeway, a new psychological drama.
She portrays a soldier who is suffering from complications caused by brain injuries she sustained in Afghanistan.

Lawrence stated in an interview with Deadline that the film was very personal to her.
“This film is extremely personal to me,” the actor said. Not in a literal sense, but there were many things that I identified with it that I connected to. And as far as playing a veteran and somebody with a TBI [traumatic brain injury], we did so much research and interviews with service members, with people that had TBIs, and we even had occupational therapists in the scenes with us to make sure that we were doing justice to that experience.”
