Jennifer Lawrences Hunger Games commitments are like “slavery,” according to David O. Russell.

The American Hustle director reportedly told the New York Daily News, “I personally think they should give her a bit of breathing room over there because they’re printing money.”

Russell added, “I’ll tell you what it is about that girl — talk about 12 years of slavery, that’s what the franchise is.”

“I’m going to get in so much trouble for saying that,” the filmmaker admitted.

Later, Russell apologized for his comments, saying, “Clearly, I used a stupid analogy in a poor attempt at humor. I realized it the minute I said it and I am truly sorry.”
