Jennifer Lawrence Reveals Why She Can't Diet

Jennifer Lawrence Reveals Why She Can't Diet

Jennifer Lawrence is looking stunning on the cover of Vanity Fair‘s March 2018 issue, on newsstands nationally on Tuesday, March 6.

Here’s what the 27-year-old Red Sparrow star had to share with the mag:

On why she can’t diet: “I’ve always wondered what it would take to get me to really diet, to really be hungry, because I’ve never done it for a movie. For Hunger Games, they told me to lose weight, and then I discovered Jack in the Box. I can’t work on a diet. I’m hungry. I’m standing on my feet. I need more energy. I remember having a meltdown, freaking out that I had eaten five banana chips.”

On staying out of politics: “I’ve always thought that it was a good idea to stay out of politics. Twenty-five percent of America identifies as liberal and I need more than 25 percent of America to go see my movies. It’s not wise, career-speaking, to talk about politics. When Donald Trump got sworn into office, that f*cking changed….If I’m thinking something, I’ve made it very clear I’m going to talk about it. My family obviously hates every time I talk about politics because it’s hard to see your kid get criticized and they live in Kentucky, where nobody is really liking what I’m saying.”

On her ex Darren Aronofsky: “We have an amazing friendship that started before the movie, then we had a partnership with the movie, and then we had a romance that came from the movie, so when you strip the romance away, we still have immense respect for each other. As cliché as it sounds, we were good to each other. I read stuff all the time that I think would be perfect for Darren. And I think we’ll work together again.”

On what she does on airplanes to soothe her after having a scary experience last year: “Thank you, Emma Watson, for Beauty and the Beast. I’ve seen it six or seven times. If anybody has any questions about it, come to me.”

    She is STILL talking about Darren — and Darren doesn’t talk about Jennifer. She seems really, really attached to the memory of that relationship, like she’s in awe of it. And by her own admission she has made it into much, much more than it was. She admitted that she refers to that relationship as having been 2 years long, even though Darren himself corrected her that it was only 6 months. I almost feel bad for her that she doesn’t experience any self-embarrassment telling that story. I would be super embarrassed to tell a story about my ex-boyfriend demoting our relationship to a mere 6 months when I crushed on him for 18 months longer than that. I believe Darren — I believe to him it really was only about 6 months. But she has exalted it in her own mind.
