As part of the DVD package release of the Oscar-nominated film, American Hustle, there is, of course, a plethora of deleted scences and extended takes. Thank God for movie editors!
Jennifer Lawrence played the quasi-insane Rosalyn Rosenfeld – her Oscar-nominated role was one of the funniest thing about the movie. Above is an abbreviated slice of Lawrence’s expanded four-minute rendition of Santana’s “Evil Ways,” shot in a single take by director David O. Russell.
The clip features Lawrence dancing around in her characters’ 1970’s living room in front of her stupified son.
The entire 4 minutes can be seen if you buy the DVD and at Buzzfeed.
