Jennifer Lawrence: 'Acting Is Stupid'
The Hunger Games star doesn't rate her profession very highly...
Jennifer Lawrencehas declared that she considers her chosen profession "stupid".
Speaking in an interview with Vanity Fair, the star of The Hunger Games insisted that she wouldn't be getting big-headed about her success.
"Not to sound rude, but [acting] is stupid," Lawrence said. "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."
And the 22-year-old also admitted she gets star-struck when she meets her movie heroes.
"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.
"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."
The next instalment of The Hunger Games movie franchise is due out at the end of the year.
