Jennifer Lawrence knew she`d be famous
Los Angeles: With a best actress Oscar win and a hit franchise to her name at the age of 22, Jennifer Lawrence has arrived in Hollywood in a big way and the star says she always knew that she would be famous one day.
The actress, who is on the cover of Vogue`s September issue, said she always had an idea about what she wanted and fame was one of those things.
"I`ve never said this before, because there is no way to say it without it being completely misunderstood, but ever since I was really little, I always had a very normal idea of what I wanted: I was going to be a mom, and I was going to be a doctor, and I was going to live in Kentucky. But I always knew that I was going to be famous," Lawrence told Vogue.
"I honest to God don`t know how else to describe it. I used to lie in bed and wonder, `Am I going to be a local TV person? Am I going to a motivational speaker?` It wasn`t a vision. But as it`s kind of happening, you have this buried understanding: of course."
Lawrence is reprising her ‘Hunger Games’ role of Katniss Everdeen in the sequel ‘Catching Fire’. The actress says she can identify with her because she has made a similar journey.
"When Winter`s Bone was getting nominated. I had only done Indies, and suddenly I was introduced to this brand-new world where I didn`t feel like myself. I was in these weird gowns and listening to people talk about things I didn`t understand. And I remember reading that in the book and being like, `Oh, my God, I know exactly what this feels like.`
"I don`t know what it`s like to get ready for your death, but I do know what it`s like to be almost a puppet. And then when I was making the second film, I had become more acquainted with that world, and I think that`s something that Katniss experiences," she added.
The actress is in David O Russell`s film ‘American Hustle’ opposite Christian Bale after an Oscar-winning turn in the director`s last film ‘Silver Linings Playbook’.
"Rosalyn is 100 per cent a product of David`s imagination. She`s a manic-depressive alcoholic, and I couldn`t wait. Plus, I got to make out with Christian Bale."
