Holmes first rose to prominence in 2014 as the founder and CEO of healthcare start-up Theranos, which duped investors out of millions by falsely purporting that its technology could run hundreds of medical tests using just a few drops of blood.

In 2015,Wall Street Journaljournalist Carreyrou reported that the machine Holmes was selling dubbed The Edison did not actually work, and that the company was using outside technology and other subterfuge to fake positive test results. Federal authorities then investigated Holmes, indicting her in 2018.

Her story was the subject ofthe HBO documentaryThe Inventor: Out for Blood in Silicon Valley, and Amanda Seyfried will portray Holmes in an upcoming Hulu limited series titled The Dropout that debuts on March 3.

In November, Lawrence told Vanity Fair why she decided to temporarily step back from the spotlight after not appearing in any projects for nearly two years.

"I was not pumping out the quality that I should have," she said at the time. "I just think everybody had gotten sick of me. I'd gotten sick of me. It had just gotten to a point where I couldn't do anything right."

"If I walked a red carpet, it was, 'Why didn't she run?' " Lawrence continued, adding, " I think that I was people-pleasing for the majority of my life."

"Working made me feel like nobody could be mad at me: 'Okay, I said yes, we're doing it. Nobody's mad.' And then I felt like I reached a point where people were not pleased just by my existence," she said. "So that kind of shook me out of thinking that work or your career can bring any kind of peace to your soul."
