Jennifer Lawrence: Fame Is Exciting For About Five Minutes

'Silver Linings Playbook' Screening

Jennifer Lawrence recently talked to Entertainment Weekly about her career, Silver Linings Playbook, and fame.

On not buying a house: “I was going to buy a place and then I realized that I’m just not old enough to own property. Everybody else was — Josh and Liam [Hunger Games co-stars] bought a house, I was like, Okay I got to buy a house, that’s what’s supposed to happen. And then I finally was like ‘You know what? I’m going to rent until I’m old enough to buy a house.’ That was a huge weight off my shoulders.”

On her parents’ proudest moment: At the Toronto Film Festival for the Silver Linings Playbook premiere. I couldn’t sit with them because I had to sit with the cast. I went out first [afterwards] and then I saw them and my Dad had tears in his eyes. I’ve never seen my Dad with tears in his eyes, ever. My first thought was that someone hurt him or something! ‘What’s happened to my Dad?’ My mom was crying too but she always cries. They were really proud. That was probably the one moment I allowed myself to feel good and proud. ‘Okay, Mommy and Daddy are happy. They’re proud of me. This is awesome.”

On being famous: “I’m different. It’s exciting for about five minutes — like walking through a restaurant and hearing people say your name to each other. After a while it starts to get creepy and scary and you feel cynical and now I do this thing where I’ve got this tunnel vision where I only see people that I recognize. I don’t look at strangers because I know if I look I’m going to make eye contact with people. I always imagined I would stay the exact same and I would be just as happy. And I’m not. It’s not that I’m ungrateful at all. Or unhappy. It’s just that people are different and it creeps me out so I only want to be around the people who still treat me the same.”

On avoiding tabloid attention: “I’m just really boring. [Laughs] They’ve tried. There’ve been stories that are so not true and quotes that have been taken completely out of context. Like I’m dating John Mayer, when I’ve met him once. But the truth is I’m always in my house at five and sitting on my couch and going to bed at nine.”
