Jennifer Lawrence says award ceremony fear turns her into a “chihuahua”.
The Silver Linings Playbook star won and was nominated for many top prizes for her role as Tiffany Maxwell in the comedy drama, but she revealed the star-studded events leave her startled and uncomfortable.
“I’m afraid I’m going to go through my whole life being scared like a chihuahua,” she told The Sun newspaper’s Fabulous magazine.
“It’s not my comfort zone. Making movies is where I belong. I shouldn’t be heard just talking.
“So, when I’m doing movies, I’m really happy. That’s where I’m comfortable, that’s my home. When you put me on a red carpet or on a stage, I turn into chihuahua Jennifer.”
The actress revealed she has no filter going from her thoughts to what she says to people.
“I have no control over what comes out of my mouth. I would probably turn into a mute if I read what I said,” she added.
She also admitted she finds people “falling down” hilarious although she knows it’s “terrible” to laugh.
Jennifer joked: “I think when people run into things or people get hurt … I know I just have a terrible reaction when I start laughing.
“Then I ask if anyone is OK. But I just think people falling down and getting hurt is classic hilarity.”
