There are many reasons to love Jennifer Lawrence. In fact, there are 10 reasons why Jennifer Lawrence is unstoppable. She’s just as funny and beautiful as she is talented and she has no filter which means that her interviews are always good. She’s a natural.
Unlike Lady Gaga, who can only talk about using drugs, her art and how talented she thinks she is, Jennifer has a lot to say and she’s never boring. In a superficial, fake industry, Lawrence seems accessible and effortlessly entertaining and charming. She’s grateful for her commercial success, but she’s not going to stick around at an industry after-party if she doesn’t want to. Jen did an interview with Marie Claire Australia where she gave us more great quotes.
On being Dior’s spokesmodel: “I actually said no at first. I thought, ‘I’m not a model. I’m not a spokesperson. I’m just an actor!’ But then [producer] Harvey Weinstein told me I was being an idiot. He said, ‘Just go to Paris and go to the fashion show.’ Once I was at the show, I felt like I had been baptised in fashion. I was just in love with his [Simons’s] clothes, so it would have been ridiculous to say no.”
Would she lose weight for Dior? “No, no, no! I just wouldn’t [diet],” she insists, with a volley of laughter. “I like the way I look, so if something has to get let out for me to wear it, it has to get let out.”
She’s not as tough as Katniss: “I wouldn’t last two seconds in a fight. I definitely have more of a leader mindset than a follower mindset, but I’m not as courageous as she is. I don’t do as much good with it as she does.”
On her winning Oscar night: “It was one of those things where no matter how great something is, when you are utterly exhausted, and
I was sick, too, it just was [too much] … I tried to go to an after party, but it was absolutely miserable, and I walked right back out and went home and ordered a pizza.”
On making $27 million last year: “It means I’m rich, obviously,” she shrugs. “My dad helps me manage it and I still go over my credit card [limit] every month. It hasn’t changed the way I spend, but it’s nice to know that I can plan a future and be able to put my imaginary children through college.”
Her family was happy: “Growing up, my bedroom was right above my parents’ bedroom and I used to hear them laughing before they went to sleep. If you were around my parents, you want to be married; you want to have what they have.”
On the trials of fame: “I want to go out to a restaurant and just eat and be left alone. Thank you for loving my movies; I appreciate it so much, but the greatest thing you could do is let me eat and just go home. But I have to accept that I’m not going to make it through the meal without getting bothered and be OK with that.”
She’s still pretty normal: “I’m doing what a 23 year-old should be doing, which is going home and hanging out with my friend, who, when I tell her to unload the dishes, will tell me to go screw myself. I like to keep living in reality.”
