In an interview with the New York Times, the actress revealed that the role was a low point in her career.

Lawrence explained that she only agreed to play the part because she thought her fans would be interested in the film.

Nobody, it turned out, was particularly excited, least of all her. “I was like, ‘Oh no, you guys are here because I’m here, and I’m here because you’re here,” she said. “Wait, who decided that this was a good movie?’”

The actress went on to say that pop singer Adele had warned her not to get involved with Passengers: “Adele warned me not to!” ‘I feel like space movies are the new vampire movies,’ she said. I should have paid attention to her.”

Passengers follows the adventures of two shipmates, played by Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt, as they travel through space on their way to a distant colony.

They begin to form a relationship after being awakened from their artificially induced slumber 90 years before they are due to arrive at their destination.

In response to criticism directed at Passengers in 2021, Lawrence admitted some fault: “I was not pumping out the quality that I should have,” she told Vanity Fair. I just think everybody had gotten sick of me. I’d gotten sick of me. It had just gotten to a point where I couldn’t do anything right. If I walked a red carpet, it was, ‘Why didn’t she run?’”

“I think that I was people-pleasing for the majority of my life,” the actress continued. Working made me feel like nobody could be mad at me: ‘Okay, I said yes, we’re doing it. Nobody’s mad.’ And then I felt like I reached a point where people were not pleased just by my existence. So that kind of shook me out of thinking that work or your career can bring any kind of peace to your soul.”
