10 Awesomely Honest Jennifer Lawrence Quotes
Straight up, Jennifer Lawrence is probably the most likable celebrity in the game right now. People just love the hell out of no nonsense attitude and down to Earth sensibilities. She’s so damn likeable, it’s almost disgusting–I simply can’t bring myself to be disgusted by her, though, ‘cause she’s so damn likeable. Pretty much everything she says when a microphone’s shoved in her face is a gem, but here are some of my favorite sassy quotes from the Hunger Games firecracker.
She Knows Her Job’s Dumb
She ain’t one of those uppity stars that acts like they’ve cured cancer every time they’ve finished a new movie. "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.’"
She Eats Normal Food
When asked what was in the purse she took to the Oscars (where she took home a Best Acting trophy, natch), she replied, “Candy, almonds, my phone, a Baby Ruth, Laffy Taffy.” Gwyneth Paltrow’d rather die than indulge in a sugar-laden candy bar!
She Doesn’t Starve Herself
Speaking of eating, Jennifer’s said, “I don't really diet or anything. I'm miserable when I'm dieting and I like the way I look. I'm really sick of all these actresses looking like birds...I'd rather look a little chubby on camera and look like a person in real life, than look great on screen and look like a scarecrow in real life.” She refuses to deprive herself, saying, "If anybody even tries to whisper the word 'diet,' I'm like, 'You can go f*** yourself.'"
She Can Be a Creepazoid
Like any other ‘90s kid, she had the hots for Full House’s Uncle Jesse. When she met the actor that played him in real life, she creeped the hell out: "He was at a party, and I turned into a perverted guy. I was like following him into rooms and staring at his ass...He asked me if I was on mushrooms and I said, 'No. I'm dead sober. This is just me.'"
She’s a Good Actor Because She’s a Liar
Why’s she such a good actor? ‘Cause she’s a good liar, duh. According to her, ”I was just like a pathological liar when I was a kid. I think I just wanted to one-up somebody. Somebody would be like, ‘Oh, God, my legs hurt.’ I’d be like, ‘Your legs hurt? I’m getting mine amputated next week.’”
She Has a Sense of Humor About Her Wardrobe Malfunctions
When her dress ripped at the SAG Awards, creatin' a good ol' fashioned wardrobe malfunction, she quipped, "It was supposed to do that, though. I planned it. I was concerned people would start talking about the award that I won, and my acting, so I thought I'd pull a stunt just to get things back to where they need to be."
She’s Awful at Interviews
Try as she might, she can’t help but constantly put her foot in her mouth: “I picked up an issue of Cosmopolitan the other day that had tips for job interviews, because I was like, ‘I need to get better at interviews.’ The article was basically about how to get someone not to hate you in 20 minutes. Every single thing they told you not to do, I was like, ‘I do that every day.’”
She Thinks Celebrity News is Dumb
Having recently cut her hair and seeing it blow up the blogosphere, she remarked, "If anyone wants to know the weirdest thing, it's getting your haircut and seeing it on the news. Terrorists probably knew about my haircut."
She’s Crass Like a Bro
A little miss priss puss, she is not: "As soon as somebody farts around me, I think it's hilarious. This is something my brothers did that now the boys at work are obsessed with. You cup it, and then you throw it in someone's face and say, ‘Take a bite out of that cheeseburger!’"
She’s Still Just a Kid
She may have an Oscar, but she isn’t your typical Hollywood type; after all, she’s still just a wee one. In an interview with Jimmy Fallon, she said, “I always feel like an idiot every time I fly first class because I’m a kid. And I just sit there, and everyone’s got their newspapers and they’re on the computer, and I’m like, ‘Can I get a coloring book, please? Can I get some crayons?’”
