It was an all-out love fest between co-stars Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper at the Toronto International Film Festival premiere of their new film, The Silver Linings Playbook, this weekend in Toronto.
The pair debuted the offbeat comedy (directed by The Fighter's David O. Russell) side by side, each seemingly enamored with the other and not afraid to express endless praise for their newfound bestie to our friends to the north, ET Canada.
"She's unlike really anybody I've worked with," gushed Cooper of Lawrence, who he also shared the big screen with on the depression-era drama Serena. "If I could do any movie with her, [I would]. She's incredible… She's so effortless in her beauty and her talent and I love being around her. She makes everybody better. I love her."
Clearly, the affection was very mutual.
"We just got along right away," said Lawrence of her co-star. "We kind of work the same way… We can boss each other around without the other one getting mad which is very valuable in film… That's something when you find that -- you want to hold on to that and make as many movies as you can with that person as possible and that's what we did."
The film, also starring Robert De Niro and Jacki Weaver, follows Pat (Cooper) as he struggles to rebuild his life after a brief stint in a state institution. Soon after meeting free-spirited Tiffany (Jennifer Lawrence), the pair teams up to reunite Pat with his estranged wife.
Look for Silver Linings in theaters November 21.
