Jennifer Lawrence on How Fame Has Changed Her
As she prepares to say goodbye to Katniss once and for all with the final installment of The Hunger Games, due out November 20, everyone’s favorite actress, Jennifer Lawrence, sat down for a revealing chat with The New York Times. Discussing everything from how she googles herself to meeting Kris Jenner, her funny, self-deprecating comments have us loving her even more than we did before. One of the most interesting revelations came when Lawrence was asked how she’s changed since getting, well, super famous:
“I don’t feel like I’m being dragged by anything anymore. I feel more in control. I’m calmer. I know that there’s no point to feeling anxious all day, so I try not to. I’m still scared, but it’s about different things. … I’m so scared to say anything now. I can see every negative way that people can take it, and I don’t want to sound like I’m complaining. ‘Oh, she’s so conceited now. Oh, she’s so jaded now.’ It probably comes from googling myself. If it were up to me, I would not talk. I would just act.”
Given the media’s hunger for a juicy story, we definitely see where J.Law is coming from, but man, would we be sad if she stopped sharing her thoughts. It’s always refreshing to see some honest answers in Hollywood, so—even if she joked to herself mid-interview that she should stop treating the conversation like “therapy”—we’re selfishly hoping she keeps it up.
