Jennifer Lawrence gets feathered as she covers the October 2012 issue of W magazine.
The ‘Hunger Games‘ actress who just started shooting the second installment in the franchise , ‘Catching Fire,’ discusses her experience with award season, on being famous and on getting older.
Here are some highlights from Jennifer’s interview:
On going to award shows: ”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 fame: ”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 getting older: ”I started out fearless, and now I’m terrified. 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. I’ve been through a lot. I mean, I’ve been nude and painted blue! [Laughs] Truthfully, a lot has happened in a short time.”
