Jennifer Lawrence: 'I'm Going Through a Meltdown'
August 12, 2013 Magazine Covers
She’s at the top of her game, but Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence is in “meltdown” mode.
Lawrence, who stars in two huge franchises, "X-Men" and "Hunger Games," said it hasn’t been easy being in the spotlight.
“I’m kind of going through a meltdown about it lately,” she told the mag. “All of a sudden the entire world feels entitled to know everything about me, including what I’m doing on my weekends when I’m spending time with my nephew. And I don’t have the right to say, ‘I’m with my family.’”
Safety is also a concern. “If I were just your average 23-year-old girl and I called the police to say that there were strange men sleeping on my lawn and following me to Starbucks, they would leap into action, but because I am a famous person, well, 'Sorry, ma’am, there’s nothing we can do.' It makes no sense.”
J.Law added, “I am just a normal girl and a human being, and I haven’t been in this long enough to feel like this is my new normal. I’m not going to find peace with it.”
