Jennifer Lawrence Tells Adam Sandler Why She's 'Rude' to Fans

Jennifer Lawrence Tells Adam Sandler Why She's 'Rude' to Fans

If you see Jennifer Lawrence walking down the street or eating in a restaurant, it’s probably not a great idea to approach her.

The 27-year-old Oscar-winning actress has always been candid about how she is not an approachable person and now she’s opening up to Adam Sandler in her Variety‘s “Actors on Actors” interview, presented by Google Home.

“Once I enter a public place, I become incredibly rude. I turn into a huge a–hole,” Jennifer said. “That’s my only way of defending myself.” She added that she’ll wag her finger at someone if they approach her table at a restaurant and she’ll say “no” if they ask for a selfie.

“You know what sometimes I do? I go, ‘It’s my day off.’ Like, if it’s Sunday, I’m like, ‘It’s Sunday, I’m not working today,’” she added.

Adam said that when an older fans approach him, he’ll tell them they don’t want a picture with him.

“They go, ‘Hey Adam, could I get a picture?’ And I always say, ‘You don’t want that, man.’ And the guy goes, ‘What?’ And I go, ‘You don’t want that.’ And then he’s like, ‘Yeah, yeah. I don’t,’” he said.

Most of the time, Adam says he doesn’t shut them down, but he told Jen that she’s “making the right move” as she has a long life ahead of her.

    Can’t say I blame her.

    Everytime she opens her mouth she becomes less and less likeable.

    Wow this interview is awkward. I can’t tell if Sandler is just shy or annoyed at the stuff JLaw says.

  • becka

    I can completely sympathise with the right to a private life despite being a famous actor. But these fans wanting to say hello or asking for your picture are the ones who watch your movies at the cinema, buy your dvds, purchase the magazines you’re featured in and the designer perfumes you promote. They keep you employed and earn you millions. Yes, there are boundaries that the media and the world cross when it comes to famous folk. But give it a rest, your life isn’t tragic because people want your picture. And if its that steep of a price, then get a desk job.

  • Ram

    the people who approach her are the people who pay her salaries. feel free to alienate them, but don’t expect the dollars to stay with you. now that Daddy Weinstein isnt there to be her patron, she’ll have to figure out something new. everybody knows she was fine with the way he acted with other women – as long as she got something out of it. people literally laughed throughout the industry when she called weinstein ‘paternal’.

  • Max

    I’m sorry, but I don’t understand celebrities who are rude to their fans, to me it’s unacceptable, you can politely say no to a selfie, you don’t need to be rude.She doesn’t respect her fans, she never has, so I hope people would stop going to the movies to watch her films and then we’ll see if she’s still pissed when somebody asks to take a selfie with her. She’s such a rude ungrateful bitch!!

  • Max

    Couldn’t have said it better girl…preach on!!

  • Messy

    who cares

  • Amber

    She’s THE WORST. She always has been.

  • Amber

    Girl yes!!!!

  • joshemerson

    Ridiculous. Oh poor you, you get to be rich and successful with a bunch of people that love you and your work. God forbid you’re actually nice to those people when they happen to run into you.

  • Mara

    She’s becoming quite objectionable.

  • Vanessa Graten

    So are the media, press and general public going to let this one pass too? It’s amazing to me how much she gets away with! She has shown time and time again how rude, ignorant, arrogant and disrespectful she is yet she’s still portayed as the lovable girl next door! Being young, white and pretty really does work wonders. It’s going to be fun when she ages though…Hollywood will discard of her and she’l be begging people to take selfies (and watch her movies – which they’ve already stopped doing)

  • Maxine Mesmer

    If she doesn’t like being famous, she shouldn’t have let all those Hollywood producers and directors fuck her.

  • Danae

    She was more likeable when Aronofsky isolated her.

  • Narima

    Because she is stupid, Jen you have to remember that you didn’t become a famous and big star without fans, because People help you to become a big star and at least respect them when they come to you to say (hi) !!!

  • Alison

    From Jennifer Lawrence famous actress to Jennifer Lawrence who? In 3…2…1…

  • cafeast

    She had poor upbringing. It is her family’s fault that she is such an ungrateful bitch. Good thing her photos got leaked. An ingrate like her deserves the degradation. btw, the vast majority of her fans are teens b/c of those retarded movies she made w/ that Hemsworth kid.

  • Sprite

    Fine dining experience, etiquette can be ‘present company excepted’ that also goes along with meals arriving at the same time, no selfies while eating and greetings between known recipients is fine for interruptions.
    Approachability to the subject shouldn’t move in a ‘straight beeline’ unless at a book signing or meet and greet, at any rate one would need to stay in a randomly sober mood during the fanfare! – It can all feel quite electric.

  • rubie

    why? why? can this young woman just be quiet until she matures a bit more, the more interviews I stumble upon with her, the more, I cant stand to listen to her, we all need a break from her. To be an actor and put down the very people who spend their hard earned money on them, just to be ridiculed , its a SHAME!!! Yes, they are crazy fans out there, crazy people out there, but those are the people who stand on line to see a newly released movie or to buy your merchandise, etc……NO wonder why MOTHER FLOPPED!!! do us all a favor and disappear to your farm, tend goats and come back when you can hold your tongue like an adult not spew out every thing that you feel like a child!!!

  • Vanity

    This is how these celebs actually think about the fans. like they are a nuisance. Its one of the biggest reasons why I won’t support these kind of artists movies because of their stand on fans. If more people just did that she’d have no job.
    Bitch please, She’s lucky to even be in her position & making the kind of money that she does being that she has little to no talent.

  • WRT707

    So watch your movies at the cinema, buy your dvds, purchase the magazines you’re featured in and the designer perfumes you promote makes you entitled to someone’s private life?

  • Lisa

    No but it does mean that you owe those people respect. When someone asks you for a picture, it’s not that hard to say “no, sorry, I’m eating and I’d rather not but it is really nice to meet you” or something like that. A little appreciation and respect never hurt anybody. It’s really messed up to be so proud of being “incredibly rude” to people you owe your career to.

  • WRT707

    No, it doesn’t. If you’re too much of an idiot to think approaching someone you don’t know during their meal with their family and friends is appropriate then you deserve whatever response you get. And notice that she says that “she has BECOME rude” which to me sounds like she use to be sweet and nice but probably by the 50th person interrupting her meal or whatever she’s gotten over it. People reach their breaking points. Nevermind that I bet most of the people who approach her or other celebrities aren’t even fans they just want to post on Facebook/Instagram a pic with a celebrity.

  • Camille Hill

    spoiled brat…her days are numbered. mediocre looks and talent.

  • suzybel

    I’m surprised she has any fans left, ungrateful b*tch.
