Jennifer Lawrence is Entertainment Weekly’s entertainer of the year for 2015 and she is featured on the cover of their latest issue. Inside, she talks about the Hunger Games, fame and her squad.
On the topic of saying goodbye to the movie franchise, she said, “It’s crazy … I signed on to these projects when I was 20 years old. I remember being like, ‘Oh, my God, I’m going to be 25 when I’m finished.’ It seemed so far away. It does feel over. It didn’t for a while and I didn’t think it would ever sink in, but it has now.”
With regard to how fame has changed her life, she said, “I can speak from personal experience. People start to feel a lot less guilty when you become bigger or have more money … People feel less guilty because it’s like stealing a Snickers from Duane Reade. People forget about the personal drain or attack that you feel.”
On the subject of her “squad”, she said, “I have a very small circle. The moment I feel like someone is using me or is in it for the wrong reasons, I have zero guilt about just cutting them the f**k out of my life … My bulls**t detector is phenomenal. None of my friends bulls**t me. Everything in my life has to be real.”
She also said that her Hunger Games co-stars know her the best. She added, “There’s just crazy s**t you would never tell anybody, but you do because you’re sitting on a set together for 16 hours a day. Josh, Liam, Woody — we know each other. These people know more about me than anybody on the planet! So it’s bizarre for it to end. It does feel over.”
