Oscar winning star plans road trip around Ireland
Oscar winning actress Jennifer Lawrence is planning to go on a road trip around Ireland with fellow star Natalie Dormer.
The two have become good friends since starring together in the hit movie franchise The Hunger Games.
Game of Thrones star Dormer is English but has spent plenty of time working in Ireland filming her scenes as Margaery Tyrell in the hit show. She also filmed in Ireland as Anne Boleyn in The Tudors.
Now she plans to take her pal on an Irish road trip – as soon as the two can find time in their busy schedules.
Lawrence – who became the second youngest winner of the Academy Award for Best Actress for her role in Silver Linings Playbook – is looking forward to visiting Ireland.
She told the Irish Sun on Sunday: “Natalie adores Ireland and talks about it all the time. And I’ve never been so we’re hoping to do a trip, even a cool road trip there next year. She’s been talking about it and saying ‘C’mon Jen, I know you’d love it’, and I think it could be fun.
“Natalie did ‘The Tudors’ for a few years and is back and forth all the time, so I’ll have a proper guide. Off the beaten track, it won’t be the blind leading the blind.”
While Dormer may have the better knowledge of Ireland, she may struggle to take the lead on the trip as it seems that Lawrence already has a few plans in mind.
Lawrence said: “If we do it, I’d want to see everything, all the touristy stuff, wear those big green hats and go to pubs. Definitely drink Guinness and go to the Guinness factory. You know, I’m going all in.
“Apparently, well she told me this, there’s no paparazzi there, and everyone’s so relaxed. So you can totally let your hair down. That sounds amazing to me.”
However, there are plenty more places to visit, and the number one place in Ireland according to the Irish themselves is at the other end of the country.
The ladies will enjoy spending time in the Irish pubs – here are eight reasons Irish pubs are so popular.
