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.

Jennifer Lawrence & Adam Sandler Reveal Why They Avoid Reviews of Their Movies

Jennifer Lawrence and Adam Sandler are on the cover of Variety‘s Actors On Actors issue, out on newsstands now.

Here’s what the 27-year-old and 51-year-old actors had to say:

Jennifer on dating Darren Aronofsky while promoting mother!: “We’d be on the tour together, I’d come back to the hotel and the last thing I want to talk about or think about is the movie, and he comes back and that’s all he wants to talk about…I was doing double duty of trying to be a supportive partner while also being like, ‘Can I please, for the love of God, not think about mother! for one second?’”

Jennifer on reading negative reviews: “It’s so bizarre because you’re so in the zone, you put your whole soul and body, you move to shoot a movie, and you then love it, obviously because you wouldn’t be there if you didn’t love it, and then people just destroy it.”

Adam on why he stopped reading reviews after critics panned Billy Madison in 1995: “It didn’t make sense to me, and it screwed my thinking up a little bit.”
