WATCH: Melissa Rivers as Late Mother Joan Rivers in ‘Joy’ with Jennifer Lawrence

'Fashion Police' Remembers Joan Rivers
A year since losing Joan Rivers, E! broadcasts a touching anniversary tribute.

Who better to take on the role of Joan Rivers than her 47-year-old daughter and partner in crime, Melissa Rivers?

Rivers revealed to Entertainment Tonight that she has a cameo playing her mother in the newest David O. Russell film starring Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper.

47-year-old Melissa dons a blonde wig and whips out her best impersonation of her mother on the set of QVC for a brief scene with the film’s two big stars, Lawrence and Cooper.

According to Melissa, Russell approached directly to ask if she’d portray the iconic comedienne and she confessed that she immediately said yes.

The film focuses on the life of Lawrence’s character, Joy Mangano, based on the real-life inventor and entrepreneur of the same name. It premieres this Christmas Day.
