It’s one of the main reasons why the internet seems to love her, but Jennifer Lawrence says she has a hard time dealing with the idea of being famous. The young 22 year-old starlet recently opened up about the burden of being famous, and she made some really great points.
When asked about her popularity and how she is handling her meteoric rise to fame in a recent interview with Vogue magazine the actor stated, “I am just not OK with it.” She then added, “It’s as simple as that. I am just a normal girl and a human being, and I haven’t been in this long enough to feel like this is my new normal. I’m not going to find peace with it.”
“If I were just your average 23-year-old girl, and I called the police to say that there were strange men sleeping on my lawn and following me to Starbucks, they would leap into action,” Lawrence told Vogue. “But because I am a famous person, well, sorry, ma’am, there’s nothing we can do. It makes no sense.” It’s hard to argue with that logic, and it’s hard to argue with a woman that has become so internationally likeable.
Lawrence of course is the star of the ultra-hit ‘The Hunger Games,’ the latest installment will release this November in theaters across the globe. Next up she will play Mystique in ‘X-MEN: Days of Future Past’ and she will be joining the reunited cast from Silver Linings Playbook (director David O. Russell and costars Bradley Cooper and Robert DeNiro) to film American Hustle, that will release on December 25th.
It does seem that Lawrence knows that one day things will get easier, “I think eventually, one of these days, I guess when the next franchise starts and I’m not in it, and the new Jennifer Lawrence is born, then I’ll be able to go outside.”
