As fans everywhere are getting ready for another Hunger Games installment, Catching Fire, Jennifer Lawrence is showing her glamorous side for a sophisticated photoshoot with W Magazine and opens up about her recent mega-fame in an interview. Lawrence, who has always remained very down to earth, says that she prefers not to live in Los Angeles while acting, in order to avoid paparazzi. With so many stars calling the paparazzi on their own outings, we can't help but to love J. just a little bit more! Here are a few highlights from her interview with W:
On attending the Academy Awards: "It’s an honor and an overwhelming compliment, but it’s also a kind of bizarre thing. All of a sudden you’re at these parties and everybody’s famous, and you feel like a loser. By the time of the actual Oscars, I was so sick of fittings and trains and corsets and people asking “What are you going to wear?” I had to go on a diet, because at all the parties there’s champagne and hors d’oeuvres. I ate so much! I think I wore two Spanx on the night of the awards."
On aging (even though she's only 22!): "You do become more aware of your mortality as you get older. When you’re little, you jump on any wild horse. Then you get a little bit older and realize how fragile life is, and you’re more careful."
On the paparazzi in Los Angeles: "Sadly, I cannot live in Los Angeles anymore. I don’t understand how actors can do it. You have no life here. You are followed everywhere. It’s not like that anywhere else in the world. I don’t want to stay in L.A. and start thinking that’s reality—because it’s very far from normal. But I still love movies. I’m just going to love being in them from Kentucky, or Prague, or somewhere else."
On taking the role of Katniss Everdeen (in The Hunger Games): "I got really nervous about signing on to that huge franchise. I was afraid that Katniss would overwhelm any other character I’d try to do. But I love Katniss, and she didn’t take over as much of my life as I thought she would."
