Jennifer Lawrence Interview For Vogue September 2013

Jennifer Lawrence: "I Always Knew I Was Going to Be Famous"

Jennifer Lawrence has quickly become one of the most beloved actresses in Hollywood, and as she tells it, she always knew she was destined for fame. She landed the coveted cover of the September issue of Vogue, which hits newsstands on Aug. 20, and she opened up about her struggles as a teen in Kentucky in the photo shoot's accompanying interview. Jennifer describes herself as a "weirdo" in her childhood years, but said that, despite not being able to fit in with her peers, she knew there was something special about her. She said, "I always had a very normal idea of what I wanted: I was going to be a mom and I was going to be a doctor and I was going to live in Kentucky. But I always knew that I was going to be famous. I honest to God don't know how else to describe it."

Jennifer also joked that her love for new sponges almost came between her and Nicholas Hoult, saying, "He would never wring them out. We were in the kitchen once, and I picked up the sponge, and it was soapy and wet, and I was like, 'See?' These are the kinds of things that make me think we are never going to work."

According to Jennifer's best friend, Justine, that frankness is exactly what makes the actress so appealing. Justine told Vogue, "It sounds a little cheesy, but she has a real person's body, she cusses and says the wrong things on television, and she's just herself. Literally everyone else is playing the game, but she is not. And I don't think she's capable of playing it, frankly." See more photos of Jennifer's Vogue shoot, including the cover, below.
