Haley Bennett on Her Resemblance to Jennifer Lawrence

In her interview, Haley talks about getting recognized for another actress–Jennifer Lawrence. “I like the idea of having a super ordinary life,” she says. “I joke around all the time that I get recognized—but I get recognized as Jennifer Lawrence,” an easy mistake to make when she’s not made up. “It’s really kind of awkward when I have to disappoint everybody that I’m actually not her.”

In her interview with ELLE, Haley Bennett talks about her role as Megan in ‘Girl on the Train’. “I bared a lot for the role, and very little of it was my body.” She says that becoming Megan “was a disorienting experience, and I felt scared, vulnerable, and really exposed.”

But at the same time, “I felt weirdly like I was being judged in a certain way. You kind of want to go on set and say, ‘I’m not really like this. I just want you to know that I’m so different than this.’ So I’m happy that Girl on the Train isn’t the only film that I have emerging, that there’s a bigger picture.”
