Jennifer Lawrence: "Nobody Can Stay Beloved Forever"

Jennifer Lawrence always knew people would get sick of her sooner or later. The Silver Linings Playbook star is Marie Claire's June cover girl and 23-year-old actress opened up to the magazine about the pitfalls, so to speak, of being a Hollywood "It girl."

Lawrence, who is currently filming the final installment of the successful Hunger Games franchise, claims she did not intend to fall at this year's Academy Awards as some have suggested.

"Trust me, if I was going to plan it, I would have done it at the Golden Globes or the SAGS. I would have never done it at two Oscars in a row. I watch Homeland – I'm craftier than that!"  The Kentucky native can, however, understand how understand that overexposure can sour people on you.

"Nobody can stay beloved forever. I never believed it, the whole time. I was like, just wait: People are going to get sick of me. My picture is everywhere, my interviews are everywhere." But the American Hustle actress can't help who she is, which it seems, is just a big goofball.

"I'm way too annoying because I get on red carpets and I'm really hyper, most likely because I've been franking, and I can't not photo-bomb somebody if it's a good opportunity. But it's something I always tell myself: 'You need to calm the f*ck down. You don't want to constantly be a GIF.'"

Lawrence also discusses her long-distance relationship with on-again boyfriend (and X-Men: Days of Future Past co-star) Nicholas Hoult, "When we're busy, we agree to mutually ignore each other. Not completely, but neither of us gets mad when the other doesn't text back or call. Life's super busy. Obviously you know what they're doing, and you trust them," she says of her beau.

"We're so young that it would almost be like if we lived in the same city, what would happen? We'd be living together. At least this way he's in the same boat as I am: We can go out and have our own lives and know that we have each other."
