Jennifer Lawrence opens up in the new Elle Magazine about her new-found fame. After being nominated for an Oscar for her performance in ‘Winters Bone’, the actress will star in the new X-Men: First Class.
On getting ready for the Oscars:Fifteen minutes before, the guy doing my hair goes, ‘If you can get a salad, get a salad…I said, ‘I’m getting a Philly cheesesteak.’ I’m sure there’s proof on a hotel bill somewhere.
On preparing for her role in X-Men First Class:I knew that if I was going to be naked in front of the world, I wanted to look like a woman and not a prepubescent 13-year-old boy…I’m so sick of people thinking that’s what we’re supposed to look like.
On growing up with two older brothers:Being the youngest and the only girl, I think everyone was so worried about me being a brat that they went in the exact opposite direction of treating me like Cinderella. I’d slap my brother on the arm, and he’d throw me down the stairs. I was always like, ‘Can we talk about excessive force, please?’
On getting used to star treatment:When you’re on set, everybody’s like, ‘Oh, do you need water? Here’s 45 bottles!’ It’s really bizarre…I’m still getting used to it. I’m still in wonderland.
