American Hustle director David O. Russell has praised Jennifer Lawrence's talent and fearless nature.
Speaking to Digital Spy at the BAFTAs Russell said, "I'm very proud of Jennifer, I'm proud to call her my collaborator and my friend, and I'm very proud that she dove into this. She's fearless.
"It's a partnership that I cherish and hope to carry into the future. She's very daring and inspiring, she's special, so I appreciate that BAFTA recognised her. It's a big deal to us."
Lawrence took home the BAFTA for Best Supporting Actress for her role in American Hustle and is nominated in the same category at the Oscars.
