London: American actress Jennifer Lawrence says she considered turning her back on acting when she first rose to fame.The 20-year-old shot into fame with her role in last year`s "Winter`s Bone", which won her an Academy Award nomination, and she has since gone on to land roles in "X-Men: First Class" and "The Hunger Games" opposite Liam Hemsworth.

"People started talking to me differently and I couldn`t stand that. I`d go to parties where I used to be invisible and off the record... now everybody`s watching and listening," quoted her as saying.

"There was a weird element and I wondered whether I wanted to be a director or just do indie films," she added.
