Nearly two years after the inspirational movie hit theaters, we’re still jumping for Joy!
Back in December 2015, Jennifer Lawrence, Robert DeNiro, Bradley Cooper, and more great actors starred in Joy, a heartwarming true story about entrepreneur Joy Mangano’s rise to success.
In 1990, Joy — a divorced mother-of-two — invented a self-wringing mop which she later called the Miracle Mop. Joy follows the young dreamer eventually selling her product on QVC and starting a multi-million dollar business.
Jennifer as Joy.
“She’s the first ‘real’ person I’ve played, so there was that added pressure,” Jennifer, 26, previously told The Hollywood Reporter of her role.
Following the flick’s release, Jennifer received her fourth Oscar nomination for her portrayal of Joy. She previously won a Best Actress Academy Award for her 2012 movie Silver Linings Playbook.
The Joy cast.
The film’s other actors — including Robert, Bradley, Diane Ladd, Virginia Madsen, and Isabella Rossellini — additionally received praise for their performances in Joy.
Since the majority of the movie took place in the 1990s, many of the cast members look much different out of character!
Check out the gallery to see the Joy stars in and out of their costumes.
