Jennifer Lawrence Covers Glamour

Jennifer Lawrence, GlamourJennifer Lawrence covers the February 2016 issue of Glamour.

On her public persona: “I don’t feel like I’m misunderstood. I feel like I’m over-paid-attention-to. I’m not trying to be a GIF. I’m not trying to be a picked-up-on-Twitter quote. All I’m trying to do is act. And I have to promote these movies. And I am, at the end of the day, I guess, a fucking lunatic. So if you record what I’m saying, it’s gonna be goofy. What do I do? What do I do? I’m just a girl, sitting in front of the world and asking them to forgive her for speaking.”


On being a klutz:
“I spilled milk this morning. Last night I spilled red wine all over the rug. All I want to be able to do is just walk from one place to another without falling! It’s so annoying, honestly. And now I’ve gone from the charming, like, ‘Oh my God, whoops, I fell’ — now it really pisses me off. Cause it’s embarrassing now. So now I fall, and I’m like, ‘Stop looking at me! Don’t take a picture!’ When I fell the second year at the Oscars, I was just like, ‘Fuck.’ Cause I would think the same exact thing. I know it looks like a gag. It’s really, really not.”

On pursuing acting: “My mom always says she… wanted me to fail so that I could come home, because not failing meant me being in New York. She lost a daughter, really, at 14. I mean, she’s very proud of me. She got on board when she saw how happy it made me. Because I knew. Emma Stone and I — we stayed up until, like, six in the morning talking about it the other night. We both were just like, ‘I just knew.'”

On her friendships with Emma Stone, Adele, and Amy Schumer: “I love Emma. She cracks me up; she’s so ‘theater’. She’s so adorable. Adele and I met, like, a year or so ago. Adele and I are a bit harsher; Emma’s never had a bad thought about anybody in her life. It’s so weird; I don’t like new people. But these two women — and Amy [Schumer] — they’re really lovely. And they’re so normal. I feel like I’m hanging out with my friends — my friends that don’t give a fuck about what I do. Amy and I have a life plan — we were with Diane Sawyer in Martha’s Vineyard for Thanksgiving. Not to brag. Diane politely threw it out, and then we’re sitting at the dinner table with her family, like, ‘We shouldn’t be here.’ Anyway, Amy’s always wanted to live on Martha’s Vineyard, and we saw this house, and we’re like, ‘This is where we’re gonna Grey Gardens, and we’re gonna grow old and crazy together.’ That’s our life plan.”

On her essay on equal pay: “As women we don’t know we’re at a deficit because we have vaginas. It wasn’t until they had a headline like, ‘Even though she’s a woman!’ And I was like, ‘Oh. I didn’t know to be looking out for that. How did I do it, getting a period once a month? I think there was this studio mentality for a long time that women and girls can relate to a male hero, but boys and men can’t relate to a female hero. But that’s simply not true. And so we’ve fortunately proved that… I keep going back and forth on being opinionated. I completely agree when there are actors who say, ‘Actors should stay out of politics. We’re not politicians.’ My business is based on everybody buying tickets and seeing my movie… It’s not smart, businesswise, to be opinionated. But then what’s the point in having a voice at all if I’m not going to use it for what I truly believe in?”

On reacting to her nude photo hack by calling it a sex crime: “If I was quiet, it would have seemed like I was ashamed. And I wasn’t ashamed; I was enraged. Not once have I felt like I ‘learned a lesson.’ I didn’t do anything wrong! Even I’ve defended myself by saying I was in a relationship with a wonderful man [Nicholas Hoult] for five years. But even if I wasn’t, even if I went on a date with a guy — it doesn’t matter what the situation is. It’s your body. And you can do whatever you want.”

On relationships: “I feel a spark very, very rarely. And it’s really only about spark for me. Not really anything else. You should see some of the people I find attractive. You’d be shocked. I don’t, like, date a lot. I don’t meet a lot of guys who I want to go on a date with. I’ll find a guy attractive maybe once a year. But I’m not a lonely person. Me not dating someone is not a lack of anything in any way. I feel completely fulfilled. Yes, when I spark with someone, it’s exciting, but I definitely don’t need that.”

On Chris Pratt being called the male Jennifer Lawrence: “Yeah. But I’m a little meaner. Chris Pratt is always in a good mood. We laugh all day… He’s like a chocolate Santa. He’s just like if a dog came to life and was like, ‘I’m a great actor with a perfect face.’ And he’s got the most lovely family.”

On her upcoming project with Amy Schumer: “I saw Trainwreck in July, and I emailed her. I just knew: ‘This bitch needs to write a movie for me.’ The next day she wrote back with a story line, which is unheard of. And now it’s complete, and it’s good! But it’s definitely not a politically correct film.”

On her personal style: “‘Slutty power lesbian.’ That is literally what I say to a stylist. I don’t know if that’s offensive… You don’t see me as a slutty power lesbian on the red carpet a lot, because I’m embodying the Dior woman, which is an honor… But [also] I’ve got tits and an ass. And there are things that are made for skinny people — like a lot of embroidery, or it covers a lot — and those make me look fat. I have to show the lumps. If you have boobs, you have to show, like, ‘These are boobs. This isn’t cellulite.’ [Laughs.] Not that there’s anything wrong with that.”

On the downside of being well-known: “I think that we should be allowed time off [from being famous]… Three months. ‘Oh, it’s my three months off. You can’t photograph me.’ I would love to be able to control being photographed. Then I wouldn’t have a new headline out today that I wore the same jeans three days in a row.”

On why she’s not on social media: “Because then that’s more exposure — that’s just more me. I want less me. I want people to have less me.”

On wine: “My signature scent probably is already red wine. I’m sure it’s always seeping from my pores. I smell like a Cabernet.”
Jennifer Lawrence, Glamour
On her teen years: “I wouldn’t go back in time for anything.”

On the advice she would give her younger self: “I guess I would just say, ‘This is going to suck. There’s nothing you can do about it, but you will grow out of this one day and become an adult and everything will be better.’ But you get zits your whole life. Nobody ever tells you that. You get zits your whole entire life.”
