Jennifer Lawrence says mother! is a feminist movie

mother! has gotten some flack from some reviewers who have said it's misogynistic. Jlaw disagrees:

To me, this is incredibly feminist in the way that these Victorian, patriarchal novels show these loving, amazing husbands that are very slowly and delicately taking away their wives’ dignity. To be a feminist movie, we don’t have to all be women and all be aggressive. Before we knew what feminism was, people were writing these novels that showed women’s strength being drained from them.

She also revealed that the toll of filming:

I had trouble calming down and coming back after he called cut. I’ve always been fine snapping out of it, but I’ve never had to go this dark before. I kind of lost control of myself. I tore my diaphragm and popped my chest rib out.
