THIS SEA­SON’S IT GIRL MIGHT AL­READY BE THE MOST RECOG­NIS­ABLE FACE IN FILM.

GQ (Australia) - - INSIDE GQ -

There are a cou­ple of rea­sons Ms Ben­nett looks fa­mil­iar. Firstly, the 28-year-old has been on screen for the best part of a decade, clock­ing up cred­its along­side everyone from Drew Bar­ry­more to Den­zel Washington. The other rea­son is that, like the rest of the planet, you might have no­ticed she’s a dead ringer for an­other Hol­ly­wood lead­ing lady. “Everyone thinks I’m Jen­nifer Lawrence!” she says. “What if I just cre­ated a huge scan­dal – like, did some­thing crazy in pub­lic? Jlaw takes a pie and smashes it in some­one’s face!” It must be tempt­ing. But Ben­nett is set to prove she’s not Lawrence – by star­ring in ev­ery sin­gle movie this sum­mer. Af­ter The Mag­nif­i­cent Seven and The Girl on the Train, next up is Warren Beatty’s Rules Don’t Ap­ply, then up­com­ing drama Thank You for Your Ser­vice, along­side Amy Schumer and Miles Teller, as well as the lead in Weight­less, with Natalie Port­man and Chris­tian Bale. All of which leaves pre­cious lit­tle time for pie-throw­ing am­bi­tions. But maybe that’s for the best. “This in­ter­view is go­ing so well,” she says, laugh­ing. “My pub­li­cist is go­ing to kill me.”
