2013 was a big year for Jennifer Lawrence. With iconic award wins, huge movie successes and movie news popping all over the place, Lawrence has earned her title of “the girl on fire” on and off the screen.
She is a natural at what she does and does it in a way that allows her fans to adore her even more with every new interview or acceptance speech she gives.
Because of the roles she has chosen, and how well she has nailed her characters, Lawrence has earned the title of “the most talented young actress in Hollywood” by Rolling Stone as well as the title of “one of the 100 most influential people in the world” by Time Magazine and also “the most powerful woman in the entertainment business” by Elle Magazine.
She has starred in hit movies such as parts of the ‘X-men’ series which she will be reprising her role in December as Raven/Mystique, ‘Silver Linings Playbook,’ ‘The Hunger Games,’ and this year she will be back as Katniss in ‘Catching Fire’ and a new role in ‘American Hustle.’
In a recent interview with Viva Press, Lawrence opens up about her work, her fears, and her genuine attitude for which she is most humble about.
When talking about working onset in Hawaii for ‘Catching Fire,’ her fear of spiders came out.
“It was really upsetting because Hawaii was to supposed to have no spiders. Everybody told me there were no spiders, so when I saw three spiders in a row, I started crying,” she laughs. “Yeah, jungles are not easy when you are afraid of everything.”
What Jennifer Lawrence is not afraid of is being herself. Something that is, sadly, not seen in Hollywood that often. She credits her humbleness to her family and how she views things in front of her.
“I try to look at everything in a very realistic, un-dramatic way. I think it’s easy to dramatize things and especially in this industry where things can get very over glam-o-fied and over dramatized,” she explains. “I think I haven’t taken my eyes off the ball and I haven’t taken my eyes off my job and work comes first. I mean in the grand scheme of things, family comes first, but yeah, there are a lot of distractions in this industry and unfortunately, none of them are very appealing for me. I don’t really like staying out late, so the parties aren’t really that appealing and I think I really just actually like working. I really just like my job, so I like to do whatever keeps me working and it’s what I want to be able to do. I think that keeps me grounded and distracted.”
Jennifer also answered, when asked if she needed a break or not, that she credits caffeine and her youth to keeping her going and not needing too many breaks. She said that because of her crazy traveling schedule, if she ever took a vacation, she would not travel somewhere. She would rather sit at home and watch mindless television for hours or babysit her new nephew whom she is “obsessed” with.
