At 22, Jennifer Lawrence is already the star of a mega-hit franchise ("The Hunger Games"), an Oscar-nominee (and likely to be get a nod for "Silver Linings Playbook") and was just named "the most desirable woman."
The actress graces the cover of the February issue of Vanity Fair, where she talks to Jim Windolf about the price of fame and using her "Hunger Games" bow and arrow in real-life.
First up, the topic of fame:
"I call my mom sobbing all the time … dealing with the repercussions of having no more anonymity. You lose privacy," Jennifer admits. "As much as this is a curse, as stupid as it sounds, to make as much money as I am by doing something that I love, it’s hard not to regret it when you’re being chased by 15 strangers."
Speaking of strangers, Jennifer recounts a tale when she thought her home was broken into. Read about her Katniss moment:
"One time I actually used it for defense. I pulled into my garage and I heard men in my house. And I was like, 'I'm not letting them take my stuff. I had just gotten back from training, so I had the bow and arrows in the back of my car. I went to my car and I put this quiver on me and I had my bow and I loaded it and I'm walking up the stairs. And I look, and my patio doors were open, and there were guys working right there, and I was like, 'Heyyy, how you doin'?'"
Jennifer is putting her archery training to use as she films "Catching Fire," the "Hunger Games" sequel due out later this year. But as poised she as is with a bow and arrow, she's still getting used to being on the red carpet.
"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!'"
Judging by the sexy shot below from the article, we're not sure how anyone can hate on the starlet.
