Jennifer Lawrence Calls Acting ‘Stupid’


Jennifer Lawrence is on the top of the world, with filming of the second installment of “Hunger Games” on the way and award nominations for her performance in David O. Russell’s “Silver Linings Playbook,” but the actress is making sure everyone knows she’s not gone full diva.

In an interview with Vanity Fair, the 22-year-old actress calls her profession “stupid.” She explained, “Not to sound rude, but [acting] is stupid. Everybody’s like, ‘How can you remain with a level head?’ And I’m like, ‘Why would I ever get cocky? I’m not saving anybody’s life. There are doctors who save lives and firemen who run into burning buildings. I’m making movies. It’s stupid.’”

Lawrence, who Vanity Fairs named this year’s “Most Desirable Woman,” indeed has a point. She is one of those actresses who prefer to look “normal” instead of starving herself for a Hollywood look. She has earned millions of dollars since her 2010 drama “Winter’s Bone” and will continue to earn millions thanks to the “Hunger Games” series.

Jennifer shared why she decided to act at age 14: “I always felt like I sucked at everything, that I could never find the thing that I liked. I auditioned and I probably sucked, but I had decided 100 percent that this is what I wanted to do.”

Like many level-headed celebrities, Jennifer is not fond of the way photographers today act and how her red carpet appearances may end up on fashion-police types programs/blogs. She explained, “It’s uncomfortable having to pose when people are shouting at you and the next day you just get slaughtered. You walk out there and go, ‘Hate me!’”
