Jennifer Lawrence posed for photographer Ellen von Unwerth for the cover of Vanity Fair's February issue. Inside the pages, she showed skin in a crop top and talked about her acting career. Jennifer's been working on Catching Fire in Hawaii recently while her current film, Silver Linings Playbook, continues to get rave reviews and award season buzz. She'll switch gears to the small screen later this month, though, when she hosts Saturday Night Live. Here's more from Jennifer Lawrence in Vanity Fair:
- On having a bow and arrow at home: "One time I actually used it for defense. I pulled into my garage and I heard men in my house. And I was like, 'I'm not letting them take my stuff.' I had just gotten back from training, so I had the bow and arrows in the back of my car. I went to my car and I put this quiver on me and I had my bow and I loaded it and I'm walking up the stairs. And I look, and my patio doors were open, and there were guys working right there, and I was like, 'Heyyy, how you doin'?'"
- On acting: "Not to sound rude, but [acting] is stupid. 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.'"
- On meeting her idols: "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 just stared at Meryl Streep. I just creepily stared at her."
