Jennifer Lawrence 24, skipped Sunday's Oscars 2015 event in Los Angeles because she was tied up with her filming schedule in Boston for the upcoming biopic drama Joy which is scheduled for release by 20th Century Fox on December 25.

David O. Russell is directing from a screenplay he re-wrote based on an original script by Annie Mumolo. Jennifer Lawrence is starring in the title role, along with Bradley Cooper, Robert De Niro and Edgar Ramirez. Joy marks the third time that Jennifer will be working with the award-winning director. She has also previously worked with co-stars Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro during the making of the Silver Linings Playbook.

Joy is the true story of Joy Mangano, who back in the 1990s was just a Long Island single mom with three young kids to support, struggling to make ends meet. Today, she is CEO of Ingenious Designs, a multimillion-dollar company she built while becoming a household name on the Home Shopping Network. Joy is the inventor of the best-selling self-wringing Miracle Mop, as well as the Oprah-Winfrey- endorsed velvety-flocked no-slip Huggable Hangers, the home odor neutralizing Forever Fragrant which won the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval, the Clothes It All Luggage System, the Performance Platforms shoes, and several more. Joy, the movie, will delve into Joy Mangano's Miracle Mop story.

In Boston, Jennifer was often spotted at a mall in Wilmington. According to People, she is taking Flywheel classes there, sometimes twice in one weekend. Quoting an unnamed source, the celebrity news site wrote: "She comes in after the lights go down, and sneaks out before they go on."

Anyway, as observed by US Weekly, Jennifer already has had her fair share of "GIF-worthy moments" at the Oscars. In both the 2013 and the 2014 shows, she made the tabloids happy by tripping on her Dior-made dresses.
