Jennifer Lawrence takes the cover of February 2016's "Glamour" magazine, delivering an interview that captures everything we love about the 25-year-old "Joy" star.
The Golden Globe nominee discusses causes that are important to her (the gender pay gap, Planned Parenthood), celebrity friendships (Emma Stone, Amy Schumer), and her latest projects, with responses that perfectly capture her trademark candor.
"I feel like I’m over-paid-attention-to," she tells the mag. "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 f--king lunatic. So if you record what I’m saying, it’s gonna be goofy."
Like it or not, Lawrence is great at delivering a soundbite. Here are seven of our faves from her Glamour interview, which you can read more of here
”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. [Laughs.] I was like, “First of all, yes, I did. Second of all, f--k you, yes, I did.”
On whether she owns the mop created by Joy Mangano (who inspired her "Joy" character)
"No, I don’t. I’m not gonna bullsh-t; I don’t do my own mopping."
On her style
"'Slutty power lesbian.' That is literally what I say to a stylist. [Laughs.] I don’t know if that’s offensive... 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 being praised for carrying 'The Hunger Games'
"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.' [Baby voice] 'How did this wittle vagina manage that? I carried a whooole movie.' [Laughs.] 'How did I do it, getting a period once a month?'"
On being friends with Emma Stone, Adele and Amy Schumer
"I don’t like new people. But these two women—and Amy—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 f--k about what I do. Amy and I have a life plan... 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 Chris Pratt, her co-star in the upcoming movie 'Passengers'
"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.'"
On her clumsy ways
"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."
