Jennifer Lawrence beat out 12 Years A Slave actress Lupita N’yongo for the Golden Globe award for Best Supporting Actress in a Drama on Sunday, but if you ask American Hustle director David O. Russell, it’s JLaw who’s going through the slavery.

In an interview with the New York Daily News, the accomplished director compared Jennifer Lawrence’s Hunger Games franchise commitment to servitude:

“I personally think they should give her a bit of breathing room over there because they’re printing money,” he told The New York Daily News’ Confidenti@l on Friday, Jan. 10. “But she’s a very alive person.”

“I’ll tell you what it is about that girl—talk about 12 years of slavery, that’s what the franchise is,” the screenwriter continued. “And I’m going to get in so much trouble for saying that.” Russell, 55, also compared The Hunger Games to a “hamster wheel” and claimed Lawrence takes on more artistic roles as a “vacation” from her more commercial movies.

We’re sure David O. Russell didn’t mean any harm by the comparison, but you don’t get paid $10 million for your work in slavery. The Hunger Games already made over $400 million at the box office in North America, and Jennifer Lawrence hasn’t complained. Now her commitment to the X-Men Trilogy? That’s another story.
