At 25, Jennifer Lawrence is at the top of the A-list in Hollywood. She’s starred in a mega-successful franchise, ‘The Hunger Games,’ and won two Academy Awards. There are downsides to becoming so successful, however, such as having to become wary about people trying to get close to her.
People start to feel a lot less guilty when you become bigger or have more money. People feel less guilty taking from you because it’s like stealing a Snickers from Duane Reade [drugstore]. People forget about the personal drain or attack that you feel.”
Sadly, I can see that, especially in a place like Hollywood, where there are SO many people trying to succeed in entertainment.
Consequently, Jennifer has learned to be careful about who gets into her inner circle.
I have a very small circle. The moment I feel like someone is using me or is in it for the wrong reasons, I have zero guilt about just cutting them the f— out of my life. My bulls— detector is phenomenal. None of my friends bulls— me. Everything in my life has to be real.”
After five years of filming ‘The Hunger Games’ franchise, Jennifer’s co-stars have become part of her inner circle.
There’s just crazy s— you would never tell anybody but you do because you’re sitting on a set together for 16 hours a day. Josh [Hutcherson], Liam [Hemsworth], Woody [Harrelson] – we know each other. These people know more about me than anybody on the planet!”
I can see that. I wonder if it makes the release of ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2’ bittersweet? Well, it’s part of being in the entertainment industry: you work closely with people and then move on. Jennifer seems to be adjusting well, so she’ll get used to that part, too.
