Here's Your First Look At Jennifer Lawrence As A Struggling Single Mom

JLaw switches things up for her new biopic 'Joy.'

We've seen her play a doomed dystopian teenager, a bored '70s housewife, a mutant, and a grieving widow, and now Jennifer Lawrence is officially filming what should be her biggest departure yet -- "Joy," where she takes on the role of real-life Miracle Mop creator slash single mom Joy Mangano. Mangano is a Long Island-based mother to three kids, and Lawrence is once again teaming up with "Silver Linings Playbook" and "American Hustle" director David O. Russell to bring her inspiring story to life.

Obviously, 24-year-old Lawrence might not be the first person who comes to mind when one thinks of a down-on-her-luck mother of three, but given these on-set photos taken in Boston on Thursday (February 19), we think she'll do just fine:
