Jennifer Lawrence Covers 'W' Magazine October 2012

Jennifer Lawrence Covers 'W' Magazine October 2012

Jennifer Lawrence graces the cover of W magazine‘s October 2012 issue, the inaugural Generation W, which hits newsstands on September 25.

Here’s what the 22-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On trying to keep her Hunger Games role a secret on the Oscars red carpet: “My mom talked about Hunger Games on the red carpet at the Academy Awards, which was something I had told her a million times not to do. She’s like Dina Lohan!— but she has good taste.”

On if she could dance before Silver Linings Playbook: “I’m such a bad dancer. I don’t have many talents: I’m not a good cook, I can’t clean, and I can’t sew. The only thing I can do well is shoot bow and arrow—which I learned to do for The Hunger Games and will probably never come in handy—and act.”

On life in Hollywood: “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.”

    That looks like Rooney Mara. Lawrence has chipmunk cheeks. Bad photoshopping.

  • R

    I love the photos inside with the birds (mockingay?) but the cover, not so much……btw, the SLP reviews are amazing! Jen will have her Oscar this time!

  • me

    she’s great…

  • ana

    After all this sexy photoshoot, her team try now to sell more artistc side of Lawrence, I guess they should stay with maxim, gq or esquire, cause this failed, she looks like fatter Rooney Mara.

    I know she’s got this whole hype after HG, but I don’t see nothing special about her, or her acting skills. She was good in Poker House, fine in HG and Winter’s Bone and just awful in X-men.

  • :)

    She is the MOCKINJAY!!!!!!!!!

  • KissThis

    Ahhh! I don’t like it!! Too odd for me. Maybe I don’t “get” it, but I was expecting something pretty and well, normal lol.

  • DanaJ

    Wow. these pictures are amazing… True art!

  • Tya

    Horribles pictures!

  • Lo

    “She’s like Dinah Lohan but has good taste” – I actually laughed out loud at that! Hilarious.

  • Tya

    She has zero glamour.

  • J

    She is GROSS.

  • yesiam

    She’s a fantastic, down-to-earth, genuine person. I like her vibe. She always comes as someone I would probably love to hang out with. She’s an actor, a marvelous one I should add, so what if her forté is not modeling? She looks at her best when she’s being herself, but I really don’t see anything wrong with these pictures.

    Loved what she has to say about living in LA. I often wonder why so many actors (especially those who often complain about being followed by paparazzi and the media) would rather live in confinement than to live in another city.

  • MegCH

    @ana: Her team does not decide the concept of the photo shoot. The magazine does.

  • Jen

    She’s better looking and more talented than the trust fund chick Rooney.

  • Helloooo

    Five words. Plastic surgery, botox lip injections.

  • Helloooo

    Her dad owned a business and got her plastic surgery before she started acting. Nose job, Lip job, Chin job and now it looks like she is doing botox.
