Jennifer Lawrence Will 'Calm Down' After 'Hunger Games' Wraps

Jennifer Lawrence Will 'Calm Down' After 'Hunger Games' Wraps

Jennifer Lawrence looks fabulous on the cover of InStyle magazine’s December 2013 issue, on newsstands November 15.

Here’s what the 23-year-old Hunger Games star had to share with the mag:

On accepting the role of Katniss: “It did kind of scare of me when I first was offered the part. The more somebody recognizes me, the less I’m going to be able to lose myself in any other characters. But then I started to think differently. It’s not as scary when it’s a character you love, who is impressive and honorable.”

On exercising: “Nothing can motivate me. During Hunger Games, when I was eating ungodly amounts, I used to tell myself, Stop eating – people are going to see this. This is going to be around forever. But nope! I was like, I still want candy, and I still want a hot dog! And then X-Men started and I thought, Oh, definitely – I’ll be naked, I’ll make myself work out and diet. But nope. Not me!”

On life after The Hunger Games: “After I wrap Hunger Games, I’m going to calm down for a while. A real life is starting to look pretty appealing.”

    I don’t get her…in one interview sh says she diets, in another she says she doesn’t and in another she says he hates exercise…..which is it??????????

  • irene

    ugh we get it, you don’t diet. but there’s also something called commitment and as an (oscar-winning) actress she should know… katniss is athletic and eats very little because of her circumstances. she could’ve made a little effort~

  • i’m begium be nice with me

    no excercise? no diet? come on! there are some paps pics with her leaving gym session and since her Oscar campaign,she lost a few weight

  • Sweetness

    You do realize you can be fit from exercising and not dieting. you burn calories when you exercise. If she has a hard workout, she needn’t starve herself. dieting and exercising combined will probably produce quicker results. her weight loss could be the fact she’s super busy. also she is young, and most likely she has high metabolism

  • o

    Liar! Since first THG movie she lost A LOT weight, especially while awards season, her body thinner every month – that is possible only if you Hard working out or Hard dieting OE both at the same time. Anyway, girl AGAIN try to pull some BSh*t propaganda PR to not look like other Hollywood starlet AKA *I AM SO special*

  • o

    BTW, about *calm down* … yeah, that is why she lined up SIX movies to do one after another.

  • Roxanne

    i AGREE she is always trying to prove that she is different and not like Hollywood always saying how she never diets and exercises and bull…she is the same

  • anima

    First: she is lying her ass off. Like it is not evident she’s gotten A LOT slimmer.
    Second: I hope she does mean to disappear for a long time after THG, a very long time.

  • o

    There is no way she take time off after THE franchise – girl is fame angry AND knows that if she disappears for some time – audience forget and replace her in a minute just like Kirsten Dunst who ten years ago was in mega franchise and play leading roles in studio movies, now doing cameos or small indies. JLaws creators in CAA never lets their manufactured golden chick repeat that mistake.

  • Gucci

    I like her a lot, but Im kind of tired or her “I don’t diet” “I don’t care if I’m fat” kind of thing. She cares because she is WAY thinner than 2 years ago.

  • Danni

    Oh gosh.So sick of her. Jen please stop talking about how you are different from everybody else in hollywood.u are just a spoiled, fame addict who has a great publicity team behind her.

  • mer

    @Gucci: I was about to say the same thing. She’s trying way too hard to look like she’s different than the rest of Hollywood, like she’s a normal girl. I don’t buy it. And I’m getting annoyed by her repeating it.

  • Romy

    Ok, I agree with everyone about her weight-comments. She’s always been perfectly slim and even more so now. Her body’s NEVER been chubby, far from it, only her face.

    But @o and @Danni:
    But what exactly is wrong with her wanting to work?What else is she supposed to do? I work everyday except weekends and two short vacations a year. If I were passionate about acting I’d love to work all year in films or theatre.

    There are plenty of actors want to act for acting-sake and not for the fame, I don’t really get that vibe from her, she clearly loves acting, that’s her job now, is she supposed to lay around on a beach on Mexico like Jennifer Anniston doing nothing all the time????
    So what exactly is bothering you that she wants to work when she gets good roles?

    Someone talk to me and explain???
