Jennifer Lawrence, comfortable in her skin

Jennifer Lawrence slides into a booth at the casually elegant Culina restaurant at the Four Seasons Hotel. She’s on a lunch break from the daylong grind of promoting the international release of “Silver Linings Playbook,” but she’s not eating because she just shared a “brick” of homemade lasagna that a journalist gave her during her last interview. Lawrence does accept the focaccia bread and olive oil a waiter offers and politely declines another offering once she’s finished.

“If I’m going to wear this skirt,” Lawrence says, laughing, pointing to the mid-length white number she’s sporting, “I can’t fit another thing into my gut.” When the waiter touts the lightness of the bread, Lawrence interjects. “It’s not a weight issue. Trust me. I’m barely fitting into my outfit!”

She then turns to her lunch companion. “So, I’ve had the lasagna,” she says playfully. “What did you bring me?”

There’s a refreshing lack of pretense with Lawrence, evident from the moment you meet her and she confesses that her iPhone bullies her, its Siri app calling her “Meredith” whenever she asks it a question. But that’s trivial compared to the disdain that the 22-year-old Kentucky native, who just received her second lead actress Oscar nomination with her turn in “Silver Linings,” feels toward the sense of entitlement that runs rampant in the movie industry. She’s also acutely aware of the influence she has on young women, particularly now that she’s playing the strong, self-possessed heroine Katniss Everdeen in the movies adapted from Suzanne Collins’ young adult trilogy that began with “The Hunger Games.”

“I was a teenager too ? hard to believe, right? ? and remember reading magazines and tabloids,” Lawrence says. “I don’t think the media realizes how much they glorify anorexia. You have an actress who loses a bunch of weight for a role and she’s explaining how she lost it. ‘I ate one grape a day and I lost 25 pounds and I was dangerously underweight and now I get awards.'”

Girl, Uninterruptible

Oscar nomination and indie cred (Winter?s Bone), franchise chops (X-Men), box-office record (The Hunger Games), romantic-comedy sparkle (Silver Linings Playbook): Jennifer Lawrence has, at 22, hit the bull?s-eye every time. Parts of her new life, like getting a $10 million paycheck but having no real home, or being on the other side of the fan-star equation, are pretty freaky, Lawrence tells Jim Windolf, but she?s not complaining, condescending, or playing it safe.

Jennifer Lawrence, the 22-year-old star of Silver Linings Playbook and The Hunger Games, has no problem laying it all out there, unlike others in her cohort. Kristen Stewart, also 22, seems perpetually annoyed with media attention. Taylor Swift, 23, is happy to make the rounds, but she plays it safe, which is fitting for someone who does ads for Walgreens and Target. Miley Cyrus, 20, occupies a middle ground: she has worked to project a squeaky-clean image, only to find herself occasionally undone by leaked stories of wild nights.

Lawrence favors another line of attack altogether. She is completely unguarded and uncensored. On a recent appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, she happily told the host about the time she went to ?a dive bar with senior-citizen strippers? while she was in Atlanta filming The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, which is slated for a November 2013 release. ?I got a lap dance from Little Bo Peep, who was very bossy and kept getting on top of me,? she said. ?I didn?t really want to reciprocate, but then she goes, ?I?m gonna bend over and don?t you touch me.? And I was like, ?Don?t you worry about it!? And then she inserted her breast into my mouth!? Awkward laughter rumbled through the audience, which had witnessed something rare?a celebrity who sounded more like a human being than a well-coached witness.

Lawrence?s unwillingness, or inability, to play the role of bland starlet has made her a YouTube sensation. Compilations of clips taken from her press tours and talk-show appearances have gotten more than four million hits. But her charming garrulity should not be mistaken for ditsiness. While shooting Silver Linings Playbook, she spent her downtime reading Anna Karenina. She is also a fan of the Jeannette Walls memoir, The Glass Castle (Lawrence is in talks to co-produce and play the lead in the film version), and Gillian Flynn thrillers are her guilty pleasure.

Jennifer Lawrence by Ellen Von Unwerth for Vanity Fair, February 2013

via Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence owns her own bow and arrow, the 22-year-old tells Vanity Fair contributing editor Jim Windolf in our February-issue cover story.

?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’?’” Lawrence’s friends were disappointed by the anticlimactic outcome of the event, the actress tells Windolf: “They were like, ‘We’ve got to stage someone to break into your house and you can kill them!’ That would be the funniest news ever. Katniss Everdeen actually kills someone with a bow and arrow!”

MagazinesVanity Fair, February 2013 [link]

At 22, Lawrence is the rare celebrity who sounds more like a human being than a well-coached product. Lawrence, who did not go to high school and describes herself as ?vastly uneducated? but reads Anna Karenina on her days off, talks to Windolf about subjects as varied and intimate as crying to her mother, having the money but not the maturity to buy a house, and getting ?slaughtered? on the red carpet. This is not, Windolf reports, a girl who is afraid to put it all out there, or bite the hand that feeds her.

?Not to sound rude, but [acting] is stupid,? Lawrence says. ?Everybody?s like, ?How can you remain with a level head?? And I?m like, ?Why would I ever get cocky? I?m not saving anybody?s life. There are doctors who save lives and firemen who run into burning buildings. I?m making movies. It?s stupid.?? Still, Lawrence is wowed by her acting idols. ?Once I?m obsessed with somebody, I?m terrified of them instantly. I?m not scared of them?I?m scared of me and how I will react,? she tells Windolf. ?Like, for instance, one time someone was introducing me to Bill Maher, and I saw Meryl Streep walk into the room, and I literally put my hand right in Bill Maher?s face and said, ?Not now, Bill!,? and I just stared at Meryl Streep.? So, Windolf asks, did she meet Meryl Streep? ?Of course not. I just creepily stared at her.?

Here’s behind-the-scenes video from the shoot, take a look!
