Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence and two-time Oscar nominee Amy Adams were spotted in northern Medford last week where a new David O. Russell film was shooting.
Chloe Rotman, a senior, said she and housemate Jeff Richmond were sitting at home on the night of March 25 when a friend posted a status that Lawrence was in Medford.
“We hopped in a car and drove to the lake where we found a bunch of trailers and were politely asked to leave,” Rotman said.
They then followed signs for the set into a residential neighborhood near the lake, and found another house with trailers and equipment outside where the actors had finished shooting earlier that night. A security guard stood outside the set reading 50 Shades of Grey guarding the equipment, according to Rotman.
Later last week, Marnie Kingsley, a senior, was working at Made By Me, a pottery store in Porter Square when she came face to face with Amy Adams last Friday evening.
“Amy Adams, her daughter, her husband and a friend came in and picked up two mugs, a tile, and an elephant hat that Amy had painted for her daughter a week ago” Marnie said.

Medford Patch has also reported that A-list actors Christian Bale, Jeremy Renner, Bradley Cooper and Louis CK are rumored to join the shoots on Doonan Street in Medford, as well as in Malden.
Coming off of David Russell’s recent success in “Silver Linings Playbook,” it’s no surprise that Jennifer Lawrence and he are working together again. With Amy Adams in the mix, along with Christian Bale, Jeremy Renner and Bradley Cooper this film is could be a box-office winner — and these Tufts students can say they saw it firsthand.
