It is no secret that The Hunger Games actress Jennifer Lawrence is not a fan of the fame that comes with starring in a huge Hollywood franchise. Jennifer has stated time and time again that she does not like the restrictions that come with being massive movie star.

Jennifer is currently in the process of filming the second Hunger Games movie Catching Fire and that will then be followed by the third film Mockingjay, which is set to be released in two parts. So Jennifer Lawrence is going to continue to be huge in Hollywood for quite a few years to come.

With such big movies still to be released, how will her disdain for fame affect her career in the long run? It could be that Jennifer gets so sick of the fame that she decides to take a break from the movie industry in a bid for more privacy. Or she could go off the rails and find herself succumbing to drink and drugs.

However, Jennifer Lawrence appears to have her head screwed on right. Every time she does an interview, she talks with such maturity and holds herself extremely well. Jennifer is an actress who will go from strength to strength and her lack of love for fame is just a tiny glitch that should have no major effect on her career.

The Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence has admitted that she does not find fame appealing.

The actress – who plays Katniss Everdeen in the film series – recalled to Vogue UK that she was terrified of how her life would change on the day The Hunger Games was released.
“I was really upset the day that The Hunger Games came out. I was shaking all day wrapped in a blanket,” she admitted, adding: “[I remember a friend saying,] ‘Dude, have you seen what they’ve done to Britney Spears?'”

Lawrence further explained that she now has a more relaxed attitude towards celebrity, but does take the responsibility of fame seriously.

“There’s a responsibility I’m aware of… In one sense, luckily, it comes naturally because I don’t stay out beyond midnight,” she noted.

“I don’t really have an exciting life… It’s funny, my friends were joking about how I was so not the person who’s in charge of taking turns to go in the hot tub. I just appear that way.”The star recently suggested that celebrities are treated much better in the UK than they are in the US.

Lawrence returns to the role of Katness Everdeen for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, released in cinemas in November 2013.

Jennifer Lawrence is the latest Hollywood actress to have her name thrown into the ring for the “50 Shades of Grey” movie. Of course, some fans are thinking the “Hunger Games” star may have a chance to be cast as the girl next door turned vixen, Anastasia Steele, BooksnReview.com reported on Oct. 15.

While “Hunger Games” fans may love to see their heroine cast in the sexy role, it’s not likely to happen. While “50 Shades of Grey” continues to surge in popularity, the movie is becoming more anticipated than ever. Movie execs need two faces of the franchise, and Lawrence is already the face of the “Hunger Games” franchise.

This means that Jennifer Lawrence isn’t likely to be considered for the role, in addition to Kristen Stewart, who is the face of the “Twilight” franchise. However, the “50 Shades of Grey” movie still has a plethora of actresses to choose from, including Mila Kunis, who’s rumored to be front runner.

“50 Shades of Grey” fans are growing impatient while waiting for the casting announcement. Hopefully, the end result is worth the wait, or E.L. James can expect major backlash against the film.

It is being reported by the blog In Contention, a Hitfix blog that specifically covers the Academy Awards, that Warner Brothers has decided to place Anne Hathaway as a lead actress contender for ‘Dark Knight Rises’ as opposed to Supporting Actress.  This way, Hathaway will no longer be competing against herself for her supporting role in ‘Les Miserables’, which many critics say she is a lock for.

Many people have previously spoken up about the low probability of any Dark Knight Rises actors getting an Oscar nomination for their roles, but they did mention that if anyone had a chance, it was Hathaway for her dark and exciting performance as Selina Kyle.  Prominent Oscar blogger Sasha Stone wrote on the topic of Dark Knight Rises’ chances for an acting nomination, saying, “If there is going to be one, it will most likely be [Hathaway].  True, everyone thinks ‘Les Miz’ will be her big Oscar grab, and it probably will be but — that doesn’t take away the fact that she’s still the film’s best shot at an acting nod.”
However, the lead actress category is shaping up to be a tough one this year, with Jennifer Lawrence getting extremely strong buzz for TIFF’s People’s choice award winner ‘Silver Linings Playbook’, and Keira Knightley also getting strong advance buzz for her role in tragi-romance ‘Anna Karenina’.  Critics mention that Lawrence is almost a shoo-in for a lock for lead, but it’s a tougher proposition for Hathaway for ‘Dark Knight Rises’.  However, it’s pretty much a given that we will see Hathaway one way or another at the Oscars next February, most likely for ‘Les Miserables’.

Jennifer Lawrence had a ‘scary’ upbringing. The 22-year-old actress grew up on a horse farm in Louisville, Kentucky, and says her chaotic countryside childhood helped make her a tough and independent person.

When probed about her early memories, Jennifer said: ‘It was happy [but also] scary, sweary and loud, where everyone had a bit of a drinking problem and everyone screams at each other, but it was real fun.

‘My brothers used to throw their soup at me and drag me round the house by my hair and then pretend they didn’t. Bland families, urgh. I hate them.’

The ‘Hunger Games’ actress insists she doesn’t take her work too seriously and can’t help but crack jokes even during the filming of intense scenes. She told Britain’s Vogue magazine: ‘I’m just like this idiot girl who doesn’t even know what she’s doing… I can’t stand this bulls**t – even if it’s real. Like, it’s just a job right, and if you can’t say a ‘who farted?’ joke in an emotional scene… I mean, come on!

‘Let’s just all hang out together! Let’s relax! We all fart, right?’

Jennifer thinks there’s nothing worse than shy people and says she has no patience for anyone who can’t even make small talk with her. She said: ‘Oh, I can’t stand shy people. Like, make it up already. Ask about the weather, don’t stare at your plate and make me feel like I’m making you uncomfortable!’
