Jennifer Lawrence missed out on a modelling job because of her tom boy nature.
The 21-year-old ‘Hunger Games’ actress had to play football as part of a group shoot for Abercrombie & Fitch, and admits she took the game so seriously that her face wasn’t included in the final adverts.
Confused, her dad contacted the modelling agency and asked for the negatives which is when things suddenly became clear.
Jennifer told Rolling Stone magazine: ”All the other girls are looking cute, modelling while playing football, and my face is bright red, my nostrils are flared, and I’m mid-leap, about to tackle this girl.”I’m not even looking at the camera. The other girls were like, ‘Get her away from me’.”
The Oscar-nominated star has previously admitted to having a ”dykey” past filled with sports, fishing, and other tom boy activities.
Talking about her childhood in Louisville, Kentucky, she joked: ”I was so dykey.
”I went through a wood-chopping phase when I was nine or 10.
”Little redneck things still come out … I’m attracted to my brother. Stuff like that.”
