Jennifer Lawrence says she hasn’t let fame go to her head. In the latest issue of British magazine Fabulous – the 22-year-old actress shares her thoughts on Hollywood and being in the entertainment industry.
On not blowing her hard-earned millions on frivolous purchases: “I was raised to have value for money, to have respect for money, even though you have a lot of it. That’s why mini bars are difficult, because it’s like yes, I can afford a $6 Snickers bar, but there’s just something wrong with that!’ I still drive my same car I’ve been driving for a long time and I haven’t bought a house yet.”
On being uncomfortable on the red carpet: “I’m afraid I’m going to go my whole life being scared like a chihuahua. It’s not my comfort zone. Making movies is where I belong. I shouldn’t be heard just talking. So, when I’m doing movies, I’m really happy. That’s where I’m comfortable, that’s my home. When you put me on a red carpet or on a stage, I turn into chihuahua Jennifer. I have no control over what comes out of my mouth. I would probably turn into a mute if I read what I said.”
On how she keeps grounded: “Definitely my family is not the kind of family that would ever let me turn into an a–hole or anything like that, so I am fortunate to have them. I don’t ever walk around feeling famous, I walk around feeling the exact same way I have walked around my entire life, but it’s not until I talk to somebody and see in their eyes that I’m different. It makes me feel weird. A lot of things that I didn’t even think could ever be possible for me have happened, all in a year. It’s been overwhelming, but in a wonderful way.”
