Jennifer Lawrence Gets The Backlash

She's goofy; she's real; she's self-aware. And, Jennifer Lawrence totally gets why some people might think her endearingly clumsy, girl-next-door persona is an act.
"Nobody can stay beloved forever," the actress said in the June issue of Marie Claire. "I never believed it, the whole time. I was like, just wait: People are going to get sick of me. My picture is everywhere, my interviews are everywhere; I'm way too annoying because I get on red carpets and I'm really hyper, most likely because I've been drinking, and I can't not photobomb somebody if it's a good opportunity. But, it's something I always tell myself: 'You need to calm the fuck down. You don't want to constantly be a GIF.'"
To be fair, she does have some truly amazing GIFs. But, she's not so keen on the one documenting her face-plant at this year's Oscars, which even Jared Leto thought might have been a stunt.
"I'm trying to do the right thing, waving to the fans, trying to be nice, and there's a traffic cone," she explained. "The second I hit it, I was laughing, but on the inside I was like, 'You're fucked. They're totally going to think this is an act.' If I were Jared Leto, I would completely agree. But, trust me, if I was going to plan it, I would have done it at the Golden Globes or the SAGs. I would have never done it at two Oscars in a row. I watch Homeland — I'm craftier than that!
"Honestly, I'm just doing my best," she added. "But, if people want to start the backlash, I'm the captain of that team. As much as you hate me, I'm 10 steps ahead of you."

All this self-deprecation has taken a toll on Lawrence's health, causing ulcers that recurred late last year while she was promoting The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.
"Socially, it's so hard-core," she said of the stress. "There are all these peers judging you, and you're never cool enough, never wearing the right outfit, saying the right thing. You don't get out of middle school. You don't get out of high school. There are always going to be people saying you're a slut because you went out on a date on Friday, or you're a bitch because you didn't call somebody back because you have a life. I want everyone to like me. Who doesn't [want that]? But, if they don't, you've gotta move on. Then you grow up and become famous, and it's the same thing multiplied by a billion!"
One person Lawrence can count on having on her team, however, is boyfriend and costar Nicholas Hoult. The Dior campaign star can't help but gush over his "beautiful face" and having a "crush" on him. And, it sounds like things may have gotten a little frisky on the X-Men: Days of Future Past set.
When asked whether they ever fooled around while she was wearing Mystique's blue body paint, she laughed and said "no comment."
"I will say," she added, "it's complicated to explain touch-ups when you come back from lunch." Make of that what you will, folks. (Marie Claire)
