Jennifer Lawrence Gets Personal in New Interview

The Oscar winning actress has revealed all in a recent interview, even admitting to Googling herself!

Jennifer Lawrence is refreshingly real and honest, and her latest interview attests exactly to that.

The 25-year-old actress who rose to fame with her roles in The Hunger Games franchise, did not hold back when sitting down to chat with The New York Times

On dealing with the trappings of fame, Jennifer shared that she feels a lot more in control of her life.

"I don’t feel like I’m being dragged by anything anymore. I feel more in control. I’m calmer. I know that there’s no point to feeling anxious all day, so I try not to. I’m still scared, but it’s about different things. Now, I worry about — [Trails off and shifts a bit uncomfortably on the sofa.] Okay, get ahold of yourself, Jennifer. This is not therapy."

Like anyone in the spotlight, Jennifer couldn't help but Google herself every now and then. But the actress says what she saw made her a little more cautious of what she shares about herslef in the media.

"You want to know how I’ve changed? I’m so scared to say anything now. I can see every negative way that people can take it, and I don’t want to sound like I’m complaining. 'Oh, she’s so conceited now. Oh, she’s so jaded now.' It probably comes from Googling myself. If it were up to me, I would not talk. I would just act."

Despite her success, and the fact she's loved the world over, Jennifer still has her insecure days just like the rest of us.

"Why do I care what people think? But I do. I just can’t pretend I don’t care. I get really insecure about it. The world makes an opinion of you without ever meeting you. That worry should not bother me, but it does. It bothers me."

While she may doubt herself at times, one thing's for sure, she'll always be refreshingly real.

"I believe in myself more, and that makes things easier. Early on, you wear clothes you don’t want to wear or say the sound bite you didn’t want to say because you’re afraid to speak up or be rude. And then you start to feel like a puppet. Now I just speak up. 'No, I know what my hair looks like when you do that, and I don’t like it. No, we’re not gonna just try it. I’ve already tried it."
