GLAMOUR.com: Four years ago, Glamour‘s cover featured an up-and-coming Kentucky-born actress named Jennifer Lawrence, “on the cusp,” we wrote, “of being mega-famous.” Well, “mega-famous” doesn’t even begin to describe it: Since then, Lawrence has starred in blockbusters, won an Oscar, and launched a thousand GIFs with her self-deprecating pizza gags and red-carpet pratfalls. She’s also pulled off a hugely difficult Hollywood feat: being both immensely likeable and seriously ballsy, taking stands on issues like fair pay for women. When the Sony hack spilled correspondence that revealed she’d been paid substantially less than her male costars on American Hustle, she jabbed back with an essay in Lena Dunham’s newsletter Lenny, taking aim at the double standards that sometimes pressure women to act nicer, and negotiate less, than their male peers. “I want to fly under the radar,” she says, but “my mouth has just made it impossible.” Well, good!

Oh—and Amy Schumer, Adele, and Larry David make appearances. Listen in.
