I’ve updated the photo gallery with photos of Jennifer Lawrence taken for Glamour Magazine (US) by Alexei Hay. Unfortunately they are small, thus we have to wait for bigger ones :( In addition, I have for you some exerpts of the interview! If you’re curious about what she has to say on dieting, fame and her public life, I encourage you to read this! :-)
Photoshoots — Alexei Hay for Glamour US
Her first thoughts about The Hunger Games being turned into a movie?
When I heard they were making the movie, I was like, ?oh, that?s nice?they?re going to ruin another great book.? But then I met Gary [Ross, the director], and he was unbelievable and brilliant and genius.
On taking on the role of Katniss in The Hunger Games?
I gave myself three days. I knew from reading the books that I loved The Hunger Games. I just didn?t know if it was worth changing my life for. I?m at a peaceful place right now. The people who used to ignore me at parties, now they?re nice to me and kissing my ass. But nobody?s staked outside my house. I wanted to make sure that when I said yes, I wouldn?t regret it. And I don?t regret it. I would have said no because I was scared, and then I would have been that bitter actress telling my grandkids, ?I?m the one that turned it down.?
On getting in shape and dieting?
I hate saying, ?I like exercising.? I want to punch people who say that in the face. But it?s nice being in shape for a movie, because they basically do it all for you. It?s like, ?Here?s your trainer. This is what you can eat.?
I don?t diet. I do exercise! But I don?t diet. You can?t work when you?re hungry, you know?
On adjusting to her life as a famous actress?
Just recently I started letting myself eat things from the minibar. When we were kids, we would never open the minibar. A $6 Snickers bar? But the other day I was in a hotel and I was staring at a Snickers bar, and I finally just ate it. Then it was like something in me snapped. I opened all these drinks. I thought: I can do it now. Now I?m all grown-up. I can eat things from the minibar.
Her take on life in the public eye?
In some ways, it?s a hard life, but it?s a great professional life. I?m doing what I love, and then I get months and months of rest. I have a lot of money for a 21-year-old. I can?t stand it when actors complain.
