I’ve just updated photo gallery with 4 beautiful outtakes from photoshoot taken by Max Abadian for Flare Magazine. Credit goes to J-Lawrence.com.

Who is she? That?s the question that ricocheted around last year?s Sundance Film Festival after Jennifer Lawrence showed up in Winter?s Bone, chillingly raw as a rural teen determined to find her meth-slinging dad and save her family home. Lawrence?s performance, earning her a best-actress Oscar nomination, was both unsentimental and exquisite, nearly convincing us she?d grown up skinning squirrels in the Missouri Ozarks. In fact, since she went without a trace of makeup (except some bloody bruises) and peered out from under a low wool cap, it almost went unnoticed that 20-year-old Lawrence is stunning, with a cherubic, translucent face suggesting a tweeny softness that belies an old-dame brawn and wicked wit rare among Hollywood ingenues.
But Lawrence doesn?t play the ingenue?either on-screen or in life. Before the Oscars (where Natalie Portman won for Black Swan), she joked about practicing her losing face?
?I can?t wait to use it. If I win, I won?t be able to!?
?without a trace of the faux ?it?s an honor just to be nominated? humility that we?ve come to expect from the camera-ready.
And wearing a red Calvin Klein tankdress about which the phrase body-conscious would be a riotous understatement, she swears she?d barely begun digesting a cheesesteak when she walked the red carpet.
?Fifteen minutes before, the guy doing my hair goes, ?If you can get a salad, get a salad,?? Lawrence recalls. ?I said, ?I?m getting a Philly cheesesteak.? I?m sure there?s proof on a hotel bill somewhere.?
It was only for her role as the shape-shifting Mystique in this month?s X-Men First Class?naked save for blue body paint?that Lawrence submitted to a twice-a-day training regimen and a high-protein diet that allowed her to sculpt, yet maintain, her curves.
?I knew that if I was going to be naked in front of the world, I wanted to look like a woman and not a prepubescent 13-year-old boy,? Lawrence says, adding, ?I?m so sick of people thinking that?s what we?re supposed to look like.?
|For a gorgeous movie star with the irritating luck to be discovered at 14 while on a spring-break trip to New York City, Lawrence?s lack of pretense is almost unnerving. In interviews, she accompanies self-deprecating punch lines (?Yeah, that?s how I?m gonna sign my name at, like, the doctor?s office??Oscar nominee Jennifer Lawrence??) with full-revolution eye rolls, tossing in Dumb and Dumber quotes whenever possible. Growing up in Kentucky, she was raised by a camp-director mom, a construction-company-owner dad, and two older brothers who never made her feel precious.|
?Being the youngest and the only girl, I think everyone was so worried about me being a brat that they went in the exact opposite direction of treating me like Cinderella,? Lawrence says. ?I?d slap my brother on the arm, and he?d throw me down the stairs. I was always like, ?Can we talk about excessive force, please???
Even when Lawrence is playing vulnerable on-screen, she still exudes a formidable, ever-so-subtle defiance. ?She finds strength in every moment,? says Anton Yelchin, with whom she stars in both the Jodie Foster?directed dark comedy The Beaver (as a valedictorian with a painful past) and this fall?s Like Crazy (playing a girl whose boyfriend is pining for his ex). ?I?ve watched her do two characters that are different, but they both have Jen in them, which is dignified. Even if they?re broken, they?re never weak.?

With her name now occupying space on every director?s short list, Lawrence was recently picked for the lead in The Hunger Games, based on Suzanne Collins? postapocalyptic trilogy in which two teenagers are forced to fight to the death?the most coveted part for an actress since The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. So it looks like the bullied little sis had better get accustomed to star treatment.
?When you?re on set, everybody?s like, ?Oh, do you need water? Here?s 45 bottles!? It?s really bizarre,? she says. ?I?m still getting used to it. I?m still in wonderland.?
And we have another cover! Jennifer Lawrence is on the cover of June issue of greek Cosmopolitan. I’ve added only low quality cover to our photo gallery, but it’s better than nothing. Unfortunately, I don’t know who had taken that photoshoot and I don’t have any information on interview, but I’m sure that we’ll know that for few days. All I can do is to encourage you to glance at the cover :)

There is also an information that Jennifer is going to appear in Late Night With Jimmy Fallon next Friday in connection with promotion of X-Men: First Class! I can’t wait for this episode! :)
Edit: It seems that Jennifer will appear not only in Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, but also in Late Show With David Letterman on May 19th! So mark your calendars!
Hello, I’ve added to the photo gallery high quality scans from June issue of ASOS Magazine! Photographs were taken by Benny Horne and, as far as I’m concerned, this is one of my favourite shoots of her. In the interview Jennifer talks about being overwhelmed by her near-overnight fame and why she never thought anyone would see Winter’s Bone, the film that scored her an Oscar nomination. She also mentions about her relationship with fellow actor Nicholas Hoult and reveals that she continues to get some of her biggest kicks from joking around with her brothers.

On getting used to fame: “It doesn’t actually feel like my life has changed that much. Although that’s not a good thing. I need to realize that people are listening and writing down what I’m saying. It’s a weird thing to get used to. This is exactly what I always wanted, and it’s here and I’m 20. I don’t think that I could see this coming in my wildest dreams, but you don’t expect your wildest dreams to come true. It’s kind of hard to process all of that. If I don’t sound incredibly grateful, I think I’m just overwhelmed.”
On Winter’s Bone’s surprising success: “The fact that the movie people know me for is Winter’s Bone, that tiny little movie I fell in love with and would have done anything for… I still pinch myself about it. I remember thinking, ‘This movie is going to be so beautiful, it’s a shame nobody’s going to see it.’ Fortunately that came back and smacked me in the face.”
On what makes her smile: “Typos. My brothers and I have this rule that we can’t correct our autocorrect on text messages. So for ‘Merry Christmas,’ I still have one that says ‘Merry Mumboree.'”
On boyfriend Nicholas Hoult: “People know, but we don’t want to talk about it. It’s one thing when pictures are out there, but as soon as we start talking about it, then it means everyone else can talk about it, so we don’t.”
