'Joy' trailer: Jennifer Lawrence gets her hands dirty

By Cath Clarke

As if Jennifer Lawrence’s downstairs loo isn’t already crammed full of awards, along comes the trailer for ‘Joy’ looking all 'nominate-me-Oscars-nominate-me'. Out here in January, this is a biopic about Joy Mangano, the real-life single mum turned entrepreneur who invented the Miracle Mop in her spare time, in between raising her three kids and working full time (what a woman!). David O Russell, who last hooked up with 24-year-old Lawrence on ‘American Hustle’, directs and her co-stars include Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro. Expect some serious awards attention, and – since Joy invented the Miracle Mop in 1990 – some seriously high-waisted jeans.
