Actress Jennifer Lawrence To Play HSN’s Joy Mangano In Film?

You can’t make this stuff up, folks: white-hot, Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence may portray HSN hanger queen Joy Mangano in a movie.

A Facebook friend of our’s posted a link to the story on

The story said that director David O. Russell, of “American Hustle” acclaim, it talking to Fox 2000 about making a film about Mangano, the inventor of Huggable Hangers whose company is now owned by HSN. said that the flick would tell “the remarkable life story of Joy Mangano, a struggling Long Island single mom of three who became one of the country’s most successful entrepreneurs with her self-wringing Miracle Mop invention.”

Wow, we didn’t know she invented THE mop!

See a resemblance to Jennifer Lawrence?

The online story said that Russell wants Lawrence to play Mangano. said that Mangano, known as “the Mother of Invention,” sold her company Ingenious Designs to HSN in a multi-million dollar deal.

Mangano is still head of that company, and is one of the home shopping network’s most successful vendors, “with hourly sales topping $1 million,” according to The website also said that Fast Company had Mangano on its list of 100 Most Creative People in Business and one of its 10 Most Creative Women in Business.

There were about 50 comments, pro and con, on the story. But we found this to be the most interesting one:

I work at HSN as a Sales Rep taking orders by phone. All I can say is WHY Joy Mangano. She’s the most egotistical, self-absorbed person I can think of.

If they DO make a movie about Joy, I hope they portray her ‘REAL’ self….talking over the hosts/callers and giving TONS of misinformation about her products.

Perhaps they can get Miley Cyrus to portray Joy….LOL! On the upside, this will push HSN’s sales of her product through the roof…..and sales of her products are already big sellers.

HSN CEO Mindy Grossman was recently in LA. We wonder if her trip any talks to Hollywood types about this movie.
