Jennifer Lawrence hopes her new flick will "scare" fans. Watch »

Jennifer Lawrence may be a household name now thanks to her work in the highly successful Hunger Games franchise, but the young Academy Award nominee is already making plans to ditch Hollywood in the near future.

"I cannot live in Los Angeles anymore. I don’t understand how actors can do it," the 22-year-old revealed in the October issue of W magazine. "I don’t want to stay in L.A. and start thinking that’s reality—because it’s very far from normal."

"You have no life here. You are followed everywhere. It’s not like that anywhere else in the world," she explained.

Lawrence has been followed by paparazzi ever since Winter's Bone, for which she received an Oscar nomination, hit theaters in 2010. Now, as she's signed onto three more movies in the Hunger Games series, the actress' rise to superstardom shows no sign of slowing down.

Will Lawrence leave the film industry altogether when she leaves town?

"I still love movies," she said. "I’m just going to love being in them from Kentucky, or Prague, or somewhere else."

Though Lawrence has been involved in the entertainment industry since her big move to Los Angeles at the age of 15, the Louisville, KY, native -- and her family -- are still not used to the  glitz and glamor of Hollywood.

"My mom talked about Hunger Games on the red carpet at the Academy Awards, which was something I had told her a million times not to do," the actress admitted during the interview, adding, "She’s like Dina Lohan!—but she has good taste."

Still, Lawrence doesn't blame The Hunger Games -- her most successful movie to date -- for making her the newest target for paparazzi.

"With Hunger Games, I got really nervous about signing on to that huge franchise. I was afraid that Katniss would overwhelm any other character I’d try to do," she said. "But I love Katniss, and she didn’t take over as much of my life as I thought she would."

    lolwut? that 'Movieville' idiot said that the movie was 'unwatched junk' and i clearly stated that it clearly isnt junk seeing as it has been watched and read by many and you are basically sitting here and saying that the onyl reason people watch and read this series is for the heck of it and not because its good. This movie, much like other Sagas such as Harry Potter & Twilight, have a HUGE fanbase, so they would watch it due to the fact they love the franchise, and others will go and see it due to it's great ratings, high success and word spreading on how excellent it is. People buy Big Macs because theyre yum, much like people watch this amazing movie because it's good! and you love, are one of those people who think they're too good and over analyse everything. Just because your not a Hunger Games fan doesnt give you any right to trash the Saga. If you have seen the movie and disliked it, then you are crazy for having anything bad to say about it. People wouldnt go to the movies and see this movie, if they heard it was crap, this movie took off due to it's book success and now due to how incredible the movie truly was. Liking Hunger Games doesnt make me brainwashed, i saw this movie because i've been a devoted fan since the first book came out, and YOU are the idiot who is taking sh*t behind the comp screen whilst all the cast are out there, living up there lives, getting money, and your still just sitting there, complaining. Don't reply unless you have an answer worth replying to and actually tell me how you have the right to say this about something you've never seen or watched. CIAAAAAAAAAO PATRICIA! XXXXXXX

    Just because a product makes a million dollars doesn't mean it made that million because it was good, fool. I can tell you're young because you equate quality with popularity. Big Macs will kill you and people buy them but Big Macs aren't good. They are, however, popular. You don't have an argument and you win nothing here, you just sound like the brainwashed, pointless consumerist idiot that you are.

    LOL unwatched cooked box office figure junk? wow cute wording babes, totally cute. you know what is hilarious is, the Hunger Games is a worldwide book/movie treasured by MILLIONS of people. if you didnt already know this sweets, Hunger Games made OVER 1 Million big bucks at the cinemas. so dont you dare sit here and trash one of the most amazing books/movies ever made, because quite frankly, theyre going further than you right now. whilst Jen, Liam, Josh <3 & Elizabeth are racking in the doe, your sitting behind your computer screening says crap. And Jennifer herself IS perfection, i could not agree moree with Mileyismylife!!! you are jst too blind to see her gorgeous complexion. next time you wanna make an arguement, atleast make sure your point is worth arguing because CLEARLY in this fight, you have no chances of winning. HUNGER GAMES TIL THE END BAYBEE!

    Beyond flawless, J-Law is a goddess.

    She's really such a natural beauty, her bone structure is fabulous and she is the living, breathing proof that 'perfection' exists.

  • mileyismylife

    She is so pretty, and this photoshoot is so high-fashion! J-Law could be a model, she's so good with structuring her body, and great with her face and eye contact with the camera.
