‘Joy’ begins filming in Mass. on Monday

Production publications report that “Joy,” the new David O. Russell movie starring Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper, will start filming in Massachusetts on Monday. The biopic is about Miracle Mop inventor Joy Mangano. That probably means Massachusetts will be standing in for Mangano’s hometown of Huntington on Long Island. Frank Antonio Hair and Makeup in Rhode Island reports on Twitter that its owner, Frank Barbosa, will be styling on set. Barbosa also worked on the movies “Rachel Getting Married,” “Moonrise Kingdom,” and the upcoming James Franco movie, “True Story.”
