The reasons why Jennifer Lawrence can be an awesome BFF were already discussed, but until we get the chance to be besties with her, we can still appreciate how amazing she is with strangers. Her humor and relaxed demeanor shine through in interviews where she speaks candidly about fame, body image, her attractive co-stars, and even reality TV. Below are some of Jennifer’s most insightful, clever, and humorous statements from the recent years. Don’t forget to also take a look at how she has evolved in Hollywood!
During an interview with Glamour in 2016, she addressed the public’s misconceptions about her. She stated that she didn’t think she was misunderstood but rather over-observed. Her goal was simply to act and not become a viral sensation or a Twitter quote. However, as an actress, promoting movies is part of the job, and sometimes she can come across as eccentric. She acknowledged that if someone were to record her during an interview, it might seem silly. She ended by stating that she was just an ordinary person asking for forgiveness for speaking her mind.
During an interview with The New York Times in 2015, she expressed the difficulties of avoiding the temptation to Google herself. Being only 22 at the time and experiencing typical issues that come with being a young adult, such as having a period, made it even more challenging. She admitted to even searching for “Jennifer Lawrence Ugly” once and laughed as she questioned if that made her sound mean.
Back in 2012, Jennifer shared with Marie Claire South Africa that reality TV was her saving grace. She confessed that nothing could lift her spirits more than indulging in some junk food while tuning in to her favorite reality show.
In an interview with POPSUGAR back in 2013, Jennifer made a humorous remark about the similarities between her and her character Katniss from The Hunger Games when it comes to finding fame. She quipped that while Katniss may be a skilled survivor, she has no idea about the challenges of dealing with fame and not being able to keep the fancy clothes she wears. Jennifer also added a playful comment about having a blister, which highlights the physical demands of her job as an actress.
Jennifer revealed to Vanity Fair in 2013 about her encounter with Meryl Streep, stating that once she becomes obsessed with someone, she gets instantly terrified of them. She clarified that it was not the individual that scared her, but rather her reactions towards them. She recounted a time when she met Bill Maher, and upon seeing Meryl Streep enter the room, she hastily put her hand in front of Maher’s face and told him to wait. She then proceeded to stare creepily at Streep.
During an interview with Conan O’Brien in 2013, Jennifer revealed her major infatuation with John Stamos. She confessed to acting like a “perverted guy” at a party where he was in attendance, following him into rooms and admiring his posterior.
In a Q&A session back in 2013, Jennifer lightheartedly shared about her decision to get a pixie haircut. She playfully recounted how her hair had grown to an unflattering length and she kept tying it up in a bun, but eventually decided to cut it off. She joked that her hair couldn’t possibly get any uglier.
