Speaking to Variety, Lawrence said she has the utmost respect for the Grammy-winning Grande.

“She can’t make bad music. I’ve since reflected on my behavior with Ariana Grande. I went full radio contest winner. I was so excited and nervous that at one point, I just kind of walked into her hotel room and sat down," she admitted.

According to Lawrence, her first face-to-face encounter with Grande turned out to be a bit awkward due to her own comments to the singer.

Continuing on about Don't Look Up, Lawrence, who hit it big when she landed the role of Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games in 2012, spoke about the correlation between news, celebrities, and superficiality.

“The entire media experience is how we digest information. What was crazy about shooting this film about climate change and then COVID happened. Some people don’t want to hear the truth because it’s terrifying. The escapism of celebrities and the distraction is more fun, and tearing down other people is better than looking at yourself while you’re watching Tucker Carlson," she said.

Leonardo DiCaprio, who was cast in Don't Look Up in the role of astronomer Dr. Randall Mindy, also spoke to Variety, opening up about his hopes to take part in a project about climate crisis.

"Adam cracked the code,” he said. “I immediately identified with that character because I met so many of these scientists who have devoted their lives to these issues, who feel like they’re in a hamster wheel.”

Don't Look Up will premiere in theaters on December 10 and begin streaming on Netflix on December 17.
