Hollywood actress Jennifer Lawrence had considered bidding adieu to acting for good when she first rose to fame because she preferred to be “invisible” in life.
The 20-year-old came into the spotlight with her part in the movie Winter’s Bone, which won her an Academy Award nomination, and has since gone on to land roles in X-Men: First Class and The Hunger Games opposite Liam Hemsworth, reported Daily Star.
But Lawrence has struggled to adjust to the sudden interest in her personal life and had considered sticking to smaller films or a career behind the camera to avoid attention.
“People started talking to me differently and I couldn’t stand that. I’d go to parties where I used to be invisible and off the record, now everybody’s watching and listening. There was a weird element and I wondered whether I wanted to be a director or act in independent films,” she said.
Jennifer Lawrence was left red-faced during a visit to Lenny Kravitz’s house when the singer caught her holding one of his Grammy awards and pretending to make an acceptance speech.
The actress became friends with the rocker’s daughter Zoe during the making of superhero movie X-Men: First Class and was invited to visit the Fly Away hitmaker’s home.
Lawrence was left alone on one visit to see her pal and couldn’t resist inspecting Kravitz’s trophy collection, and she was left embarrassed when the singer walked in on her midway through her monologue.
She tells Britain’s Marie Claire magazine, “I was round Lenny Kravitz’s house. Anyway, I was all by myself in his home and I looked around and I saw his collection of Grammys. I just couldn’t resist, so I went and grabbed one and started giving an imaginary acceptance speech.
“Next thing, I just hear this deep voice from behind me go, ‘So, how does it feel, Jen?’ I turned around and there’s Lenny with his huge bodyguard friend. I was gonna come up with something about polishing it. But, hey, I’m fooling no one.”
American actress Jennifer Lawrence has admitted she wants to raise her family in London because she loves the British capital so much.
Jennifer, who grew up in Louisville, Kentucky, before moving to Los Angeles when she was 16 – spent five months in the British capital shooting X-Men: First Class and is looking forward to returning.
Lawrence, who is set to star in new film The Hunger Games, told British Marie Claire magazine: ‘When I first landed there [in London] I remember calling my mum and going, ‘I think I’m going to live here, I think I want to raise my family here.”
During the filming of X-Men, the 20-year-old became close to her co-star Nicholas Hoult, 21, but despite not admitting to dating the actor, she did say she was in a relationship with someone.
When told Hoult was a nice guy, the star replied: ‘Very nice.’
Marie Claire UK issue hit newsstands today! Marie Claire site released some outtakes of Jennifer’s shoot and some highlights of the cover story:
She may be only 20, but Jennifer Lawrence already has an Oscar nomination, a lead role in X-Men: First Class – and now a Marie Claire cover under her belt. Looking positively ethereal in powder blue Dior, the hottest new actress in Hollywood let us in on standing up to directors, and an unexpected London romance…
Just 10 minutes in Jennifer Lawrence’s company and it’s clear this is no run-of-the-mill Hollywood ingénue. Part Renee Zellweger, part Jodie Foster, part Tina Fey, there’s something special about her. Pretty as a picture, the starlet struck a pose in flowing nude Rochas gown, with Detail and Alex Monroe gold jewellery.
“Oscar season was surreal and bizarre,” Jennifer – smouldering in a sweeping D&G dress – recalls of earning herself a nomination for movie Winter’s Bone at the 2010 ceremony. “It’s the biggest thing that can happen to an actress and then it’s also… they call your name on the news at 5 o’clock in the morning and it’s not your life any more.”
“The Oscars itself was the most fun but all those shows leading up to it had so much stress,” our stunning Dior-clad cover star explains. “Like this dress and that dress… I felt like a politician on a campaign trail.”
There’s nothing manufactured of affected about Jen. What’s more, in contrast to many actresses in her age bracket, she’s unafraid of speaking her mind. Mention the Calvin Klein custom-made gown she wore to the Oscars and she’s more interested in discussing the size zero debate and the demands of her industry.
“I understand I’m an actress and I have a job and I have to be in a certain shape, and I’m fine with that. But I do want the stick-thin trend to end,” Jen, dressed in shimmering Donna Karen, explained. “I like eating so I didn’t really diet during the Oscars. In fact I needed to go on a diet afterwards!”
“I’ve always had the same mentality,” Jen in a figure hugging Dolce and Gabanna bodysuit reveals of her acting career – which includes roles in Burning Pain, Winter’s Bone, and more recently, X Men: First Class and The Beaver. “If I have to give a mall part of myself to make a role a little better, then I’ll just do comedies. Because it’s not worth it.”
On her love life, Jen (reportedly dating X Men co-star Nicholas Hoult) remains decidedly coy. “No I’m not single,” she replies to our question after a silence and a faint smile.
I just added in the gallery some outtakes of photoshoots Jennifer did for Asos and Flare magazine:

Every Jennifer fan wants to find way to contact her so some people use this to pretend to be her and feel important or something. Official sources confirm that Jennifer does NOT have twitter account. If you come across an account that claims to be her it’s just fake.
Lionsgate categorically denies any twitter account of the Katniss Everdeen actress.
This is NOT Jennifer Lawrence’s Twitter account. We will be sure to keep everyone posted on all official social pages.
Its not accurate. She’s not on twitter. We will be taking it down so thanks for bringing it to our attention.
I first met Jennifer Lawrence in June 2010. At the time, her movie “Winter’s Bone” was a critical smash but the spotlight that comes along with Oscar nominations & major movie casting had yet to find her. But let me tell you, one year later — after all the red carpet hoopla, “X-Men: First Class” attention and “Hunger Games” hiring — Jennifer is exactly the same down-to-earth, self-deprecating girl who was more interested in where I bought my bag than talking about her actorly motivation.
A skill that will undoubtedly serve her well over the next three years as she becomes one of the most popular and omnipresent actors thanks to her casting as Katniss in “The Hunger Games” movies. Yes, that Young Adult Rocket has one destination: stardom. Just ask Kristen Stewart.
Sitting down with Jennifer is always a joy, as you can probably tell from the following interview. It takes so many detours I almost got whiplash. So keep reading because in addition to talking “Hunger Games” and “X-Men,” I also get Jennifer’s take on psychics, her lack of parental supervision and vomiting on live television.
PW: I know this is still fairly new to you, but if there are any nerves, you’re doing a remarkable job of hiding them.
Jennifer: Right before I went on the “Letterman” stage, the guy who was telling me where to go said, “have fun out there, you’ll be great.” And I just looked at him and said, “I think I’m going to throw up.” [laughs] But once you’re out there, it’s OK. I think I’m getting a bit better at not being nervous. Mostly because I’m so focused on my posture. All I think is, “suck in! suck in! don’t put your arm against your body!” But that can screw me up to because it’s like, “wait, what is David Letterman saying?”
MTV News’ own Josh Horowitz is an old pro at interviewing celebs… or is he?! Not according to Jennifer Lawrence, who crashed the private office of our go-to on-camera personality and made him into her own personal object of torture makeover project. Just in time for the MTV Movie Awards, of course.
“Walk with me,” Jennifer commands, before blasting Josh in the face with bronzer (“Television audiences only trust people with natural phosphorescent orangey bronze skin. Trust me!”) and then destroying his spectacles with a single stomp.
“I can’t see without them!” Josh protests, but Jennifer’s not having it.
“Mario Lopez is legally blind and that’s never stopped him!” she shouts. “Glasses OFF!”
And it doesn’t end there. Whisking our slightly sandblasted-looking reporter into a pair of studio chairs, Jennifer demands that he interview her… no, wait! Not that way!
“Entertainment reporters ask hard-hitting questions. Who are you dating! What are you wearing! GO!” she demands. (But only so that she can follow by protesting: “I don’t want to talk about my personal life!”)
We’re not sure whether this slap-dash info session improved Josh’s celeb-questioning game (or, um, his skin tone), but hey, whatever Jennifer Lawrence wants, Jennifer Lawrence gets.
I found a couple new photos of Jennifer in “X-Men: First Class”:
Also, here is another interview of Jen:
Jennifer Lawrence: The next big thing
She’s only 20 and already has an Oscar nomination to her name. Now Jennifer Lawrence stars as a blue mutant in X-Men and a teen warrior in Hunger Games. Has success affected her?
At the moment, Jennifer Lawrence — Academy Award nominee, comic-book-movie star and the current unofficially anointed It Girl — can barely catch her breath long enough to have a conversation.
During a recent telephone call with Lawrence — who received her first Oscar nomination this year for her portrayal of a steely teen in Winter’s Bone and will be seen in her first summer blockbuster, X-Men: First Class — the actress is all over the place.
Jennifer did various interviews to promote “X-Men: First Class” last month. So as I had some free time I capped some of them and uploaded caps in gallery:
Listen to an actor who made his name in indie movies — many of them critical successes but box-office failures — and went on to play in hundred-million-dollar blockbusters: “I know there are 18,000 trucks and 800 for lunch and the whole thing, but still, within the context of the process, it still feels very intimate… It still feels the same as a film with a 30-person crew. You’re still doing the work.”
Now here’s a young actress in small movies — many of them critical successes but modest hits — who’s about to become the new It Girl of Hollywood: “It’s all filmmaking. The behind-the-scenes is always different: You have a bigger trailer, there’s better food, things like that. I still do the movies for the same reasons. I still love the script, I love the director, I love the character and the other actors involved. So all of the reasons why I was there, they were all the same.”
“I’m at the Jimmy Fallon dressing room. I was just saying good-bye to my entourage.”
Jennifer Lawrence is on the phone, explaining why there is so much commotion in the background as we attempt to begin a brief interview. She says the word entourage in a way that implies air quotes; Lawrence, 20, doesn’t seem like the type to take the concept of Hollywood posses seriously. But at the least, she should probably get used to the commotion.
That’s because in the past year, this Louisville, Ky. native, has quickly rocketed from under-the-radar indie actress to movie industry It Girl.
First she earned an Academy Award nomination for her turn as a steely teen in “Winter’s Bone.” Then she took on the role of young shape-shifter Mystique (non-mutant name: Raven Darkholme) in “X-Men: First Class,”her first attempt at blockbuster fare, which arrives in theaters Friday. And now Lawrence is playing her buzziest role to date: the teen warrior Katniss Everdeen in the adaptation of the popular post-apocalyptic young-adult book series “The Hunger Games,” which is currently shooting in Wilmington, N.C.
“The Hunger Games” fan fervor has made her the subject of intense Internet chatter and also recently landed her on the cover of Entertainment Weekly (see below). So how is Lawrence handling all of the sudden attention?
During a conversation briefly interrupted by the lack of cell reception in a parking garage, we talked about that, as well as her transformation into Mystique and how she and “X-Men” co-star James McAvoy bonded on-set. (Apparently that involved making fart noises.)
Was it strange to go from doing movies like “Winter’s Bone” to an “X-Men” flick? Or is there ultimately little difference between making an indie vs. a comic-book film?
Jennifer Lawrence: It’s all filmmaking. The behind the scenes is always different: you have a bigger trailer, there’s better food. Things like that. I still do the movies for the same reasons. I still love the script, I love the director, I love the character and the other actors involved. So all of the reasons why I was there, they were all the same.
It’s kind of like camping versus going to a resort. They’re both fun, they’re just different kinds of fun.
How long did you have to sit in the chair to get the Mystique make-up done?.
Lawrence:: I had to either stand or sit on a bicycle seat for about eight hours when it was full body.
A bicycle seat?
Lawrence: Yeah, you can’t sit in a chair because then they can’t get to all your good parts.
Jennifer Lawrence has revealed that her parents didn’t believe that she was going to make it as an actress.
The X-Men: First Class star said that they were so dubious about her career choice that they made her finish her education before allowing her to pursue her dream.
She told the Scotsman newspaper, “Of course they were sceptical as anyone would be if their 14-year-old said, I think I’m going to move to New York and be an actress.”
“They made sure that I got my education because they were basically preparing for me to fail. They were waiting for me to fail so that we could go home and get back to normal. And now I’m here. Now they think it’s great, they’re having a blast.”
The 20-year-old plays mutant shapeshifter Mystique in the movie but said that she couldn’t do any of her own stunts because of her tight-fitting costume.
“I did not do one stunt. The X-suit that we wear, I couldn’t lift my arms above my shoulders. I couldn’t bend my knees and I was wearing platform shoes. I was there to save the world but I couldn’t bend my knees,” she joked.
I updated the gallery with some photos of Jennifer in “X-Men: First Class” and “The Hunger Games”.
