Sorry, did you say something? I can’t hear you over my complete and utter adoration for Jennifer Lawrence. I am going to get this magazine cover tattooed on my body so that I can lovingly stroke her face and pretend that she is smiling like that at me. Did we just cross over into creepy? I think so. Let’s keep going.
As if the photo shoot from Jennifer’s issue of Vanity Fair wasn’t enough, now we’re getting to hear some bits from the interview. And they will make you hug your computer and roll around in the floor with it out of sheer love for this girl. You know, if you aren’t doing that already.
From Vanity Fair:
On her bow and arrow: “One time I actually used it for defense. I pulled into my garage and I heard men in my house. And I was like, ‘I’m not letting them take my stuff. I had just gotten back from training, so I had the bow and arrows in the back of my car. I went to my car and I put this quiver on me and I had my bow and I loaded it and I’m walking up the stairs. And I look, and my patio doors were open, and there were guys working right there, and I was like, ‘Heyyy, how you doin’?'” Lawrence’s friends were disappointed by the anticlimactic outcome of the event, the actress tells Windolf: “They were like, ‘We’ve got to stage someone to break into your house and you can kill them!’ That would be the funniest news ever. Katniss Everdeen actually kills someone with a bow and arrow!”
On acting: “Not to sound rude, but [acting] is stupid,” Lawrence says. “Everybody’s like, ‘How can you remain with a level head?’ And I’m like, ‘Why would I ever get cocky? I’m not saving anybody’s life. There are doctors who save lives and firemen who run into burning buildings. I’m making movies. It’s stupid.’”
On Meryl Streep: “Once I’m obsessed with somebody, I’m terrified of them instantly. I’m not scared of them—I’m scared of me and how I will react,” she tells Windolf. “Like, for instance, one time someone was introducing me to Bill Maher, and I saw Meryl Streep walk into the room, and I literally put my hand right in Bill Maher’s face and said, ‘Not now, Bill!,’ and I just stared at Meryl Streep.” So, Windolf asks, did she meet Meryl Streep? “Of course not. I just creepily stared at her.”
She also talks about how she never went to high school – she calls herself “vastly uneducated” – and something about crying to her mother, but those bits have yet to be disclosed.
I don’t know a lot of things, you guys, but I know that I love this girl with my whole heart. Well, I love her as much as you can love someone who you’ve never met or spoken to and who doesn’t even know you exist. Are we getting creepy again? It’s ok. Shh. It’s ok.
