VanityFair.com had finally updated its site with Jennifer Lawrence’s cover story in which she discusses, among other things, meeting Mel Gibson and Jodie Foster, how she got discovered when she was 16, her favorite directors and movies, being NSync and Leonardo DiCaprio fan, as well as being ?uneducated? and having anxiety about lying. We can also take a look behind the scenes of her beautiful cover shoot made by Ellen von Unwerth and see the photographs from editorial without text. Be sure to check them out!
Photoshoots (2013) ? Vanity Fair
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.
