At just 25, Jennifer Lawrence is already an Oscar winner and Hollywood?s most bankable actress. Since 2010?s gritty breakthrough Oscar nominated role in Winter?s Bone, she?s led the box-office-busting franchise The Hunger Games and worked blue for her role as Mystique in the X-Men series.
?It?s crazy,? Lawrence tells EW. ?I signed on to these projects when I was 20 years old. I remember being like, ?Oh my God, I?m going to be 25 when I?m finished. It seemed so far away.? As for saying goodbye to Katniss Everdeen, Lawrence says she now feels the finality of Mockingjay ? Part 2 arriving in theaters. ?It does feel over. It didn?t for a while and I didn?t think it would ever sink in, but it has now. It feels over. And that?s okay. It?s okay to move on.?
This Christmas, she and director David O. Russell ? who previously did 2012?s Silver Linings Playbook (for which she took home the Best Actress Oscar) and 2013?s American Hustle (which garnered her a third nomination) ? have teamed up again for Joy, in which Lawrence takes center stage as the film unfolds over four decades to show how one bright, determined woman rises to become the matriarch of her family.
?David and I will never, ever, ever, ever not do movies together,? she says. ?I love him so much that sometimes I can?t talk about him without tearing up. Look! I?m tearing up. I understand every look, every eyeball move, every word he says or doesn?t say. We were made for each other.?
Russell feels the same way. ?Jen?s the same person, this girl from Kentucky who is becoming a woman,? he says. ?I?ve gotten the privilege of watching that. That?s also the story of this movie. It?s a lot for a 25-year-old. But it?s happening. Jennifer is really finding her own voice.?

Jennifer, who do you act for?
LAWRENCE:My agent. (Laughter.) If I hadn’t found [acting], I would have never been able to make sense of all of these bizarre things we all had when we were kids. Why, if I think something, do I feel it? Before you’re acting, that just makes you feel crazy.
BLANCHETT:All those voices. LAWRENCE:[Once] I con?vinced my entire bus that we were being held up for ransom because I was reading about it and I was like, “This is real.” I have an outlet, and now I understand what it is, otherwise I would have felt mentally insane. I really act for myself. I really love it. I don’t think there’s a way that you could handle these schedules, all of the actual work that goes into it, if you don’t really, really love it.
