Jennifer Lawrence: 'I Feel Like I'm Over-Paid Attention To'

Jennifer Lawrence: 'I Feel Like I'm Over-Paid Attention To'

Jennifer Lawrence exposes her bra and underwear in this inside image from her Glamour magazine February 2016 issue, on newsstands January 12.

Here’s what the 25-year-old Joy actress had to share:

On if she feels misunderstood by the media: “I don’t feel like I’m misunderstood. I feel like I’m over-paid-attention-to. I’m not trying to be a GIF. I’m not trying to be a picked-up-on-Twitter quote. All I’m trying to do is act. And I have to promote these movies. And I am, at the end of the day, I guess, a f–king lunatic. So if you record what I’m saying, it’s gonna be goofy. [Laughs.] What do I do? What do I do? I’m just a girl, sitting in front of the world and asking them to forgive her for speaking.”

On her friendships with Emma Stone, Adele, and Amy Schumer: “I love Emma. She cracks me up; she’s so ‘theater.’ She’s so adorable. And Adele and I met, like, a year or so ago. Adele and I are a bit harsher; Emma’s never had a bad thought about anybody in her life. It’s so weird; I don’t like new people. But these two women”and Amy”they’re really lovely. And they’re so normal. I feel like I’m hanging out with my friends”my friends that don’t give a f–k about what I do…. Amy’s always wanted to live on Martha’s Vineyard, and we saw this house, and we’re like, ‘This is where we’re gonna Grey Gardens, and we’re gonna grow old and crazy together.’ That’s our life plan.”

On how she describes her style: “‘Slutty power lesbian.’ That is literally what I say to a stylist. [Laughs.] I don’t know if that’s offensive…. You don’t see me as a slutty power lesbian on the red carpet a lot, because I’m embodying the Dior woman, which is an honor…. But [also] I’ve got tits and an ass. And there are things that are made for skinny people”like a lot of embroidery, or it covers a lot”and those make me look fat. I have to show the lumps. If you have boobs, you have to show, like, ‘These are boobs. This isn’t cellulite.’ [Laughs.] Not that there’s anything wrong with that.”

On dating: “I don’t, like, date a lot. I don’t meet a lot of guys who I want to go on a date with. I’ll find a guy attractive maybe once a year. But I’m not a lonely person. Me not dating someone is not a lack of anything in any way. I feel completely fulfilled. Yes, when I spark with someone, it’s exciting, but I definitely don’t need that….”

    Wow a homophobic name dropper

  • Mayra

    “All I’m trying to do is act.”
    Haha I’m sure you do Jennifer, after all the red carpet falls and wacky interviews… I bet you hate the attention.

  • Courtney

    I know I’m going to get flack for this, but I hardly see what she said as homophobic. Should she have said it? No. She just has no filter and tends to speak her mind. I’m disappointed with some things that she’s said, but she’s human and makes mistakes. Overall, she’s a talented working woman with a heart of gold. Just because she says these things doesn’t make her a bad person.

  • Courtney

    She just said she does. She doesn’t fall intentionally. She’s also very private when she’s not making movies. She doesn’t go to every party known to man or pull publicity stunts.

  • Jenny from the flop

    I think the problem is that she has watched too many movies and lost her sense of reality. Lol “slutty lesbian” she’s so deluded

  • Beatrice88

    Nothing homophobic about what she said.

  • Beatrice88

    I think you should stop hating on a woman that did nothing to you personally. She’s a candid and honest girl who happens to be funny and clumsy, hard to believe that, but it doesn’t make her evil or any of the other mean words you keep calling her as I saw you more than once commenting under her articles. Don’t fill yourself with negativity and this is an advise i’m giving you in general if you wanna take it. :) There are other people in the world that deserve your attention and criticism. Jennifer Lawrence shouldn’t be one of them.

  • Beatrice88

    Every cast mate of hers said she tends to fall sometimes, on and off camera. If she wanted attention, she would get herself in PR relationships, show up to all events out there in Hollywood. The girl doesn’t need anymore attention and she has never been thirsty to it, she talked about the media attention and ending up in headlines a whole ago with Charlie Rose. She’s HW MOST popular and in demand actress. Attention is for people who don’t have much of a career and trying hard to get it.

  • Jenny from the flop

    Lmfao!! Gurl you need to stop stalking me and get upset over my comments. Obviously, you’re her PR agent or something like that. Not even her psycho fans would care that much 😂 Poor you

  • Beatrice88

    I’m not. I’m just a normal person like you who’s reading articles on the internet. Nothing about what you said made me upset because there are other things to get upset over in life. I just saw you more than once here and figured i’d reply to you, because that state of negativity or dislike you’re obviously having about this girl is something i went through myself a long time ago, and i regret every bit of it now. nobody or nothing deserves that much from us. So i saw this as an opportunity to point that to you, whether you take or leave it. You might make fun of me now, but I perfectly know that what i’m saying is true. We’re all human beings here who can get too worked up sometimes. I have nothing against you and I wish you luck.

  • Courtney

    Like the Kardashians. They’re the most attention thirsty people ever. I don’t get why Jennifer likes their show, but she’s nothing like them, which is good.

  • Davis

    it is

  • Davis

    You’re an idiot, if this was kim kardashian you’d freak out

  • Beatrice88

    No. You just dislike her so much that anything she says you will find fault with. She’s obviously joking. If you want to take offense to everything it’s your problem. Too bad you have so much hatred in you towards this girl, because I don’t think that’s a healthy attitude at all. But then again suit yourself. It’s your life, and if you chose to live it with a negative state of mind, over a person that did nothing to you personally and comment about them in a hateful way on the internet then good for you. I just think this is sad and a waste of time. You can take advantage to spread love and positivity instead. It feels so much better to do that and even better do something productive. Lawrence doesn’t know who we are, and she’s living her life, whether you hate or dislike her. She’s a successful person who went after her dream job and life. You sitting behind a screen hating on her isn’t gonna change one this about her.

  • Davis

    I’ll say what i want, ignore if i’m stupid then

  • Davis

    How you can bash me for bashing a hateful bigoted person

  • Maria

    She puts her foot in her mouth far too often these days. She needs to talk less, work less, and maybe I wouldn’t be so tired of her. Overexposed in my mind.

  • girl93

    Well she is not the brightest star in the sky..

    please JLaw just shut up, and just focus in doing movies.

  • Falchetta

    Wrong bra girl. Flatters your nice cleavage.

  • Preakness

    Slutty power neurosurgeon to the stars, it would seem, and unlike with lesbians that takes a real brain in your head to accomplish.
