Jennifer Lawrence is on top of her game, winning the best actress Oscar for “Silver Linings Playbook” at just 22 years old.
Still, the refreshingly honest star opens up in the September issue of “Vogue” about the negative side to becoming a rising star with “Winter’s Bone” and seeing herself in Katniss Everdeen.
“I had only done indies, and suddenly I was introduced to this brand-new world where I didn’t feel like myself,” Lawrence said, adding, “And I remember reading that in [“The Hunger Games”] and being like, Oh, my God, I know exactly what this feels like. I don’t know what it’s like to get ready for your death, but I do know what it’s like to be almost a puppet.”
Despite recognizing that it might make her seem ungrateful for her success, Lawrence went on to add that though she envisioned a simple life in Kentucky, she somehow felt that she was destined for fame.
“I’ve never said this before, because there is no way to say it without it being completely misunderstood… but I always knew that I was going to be famous,” she said. “I honest to God don’t know how else to describe it.”
Lawrence frankly described working with “Silver Linings” director David O. Russell again on “American Hustle,”and why she wanted to play Rosalyn, a part written specifically for her.
“Rosalyn is 100 percent a product of David’s imagination,” she said excitedly. “She’s a manic-depressive alcoholic, and I couldn’t wait. Plus, I got to make out with Christian Bale.”
“American Hustle” will be released on Christmas Day.
