Jennifer Lawrence Also Shops at Ikea, Has Nightmares About Leaving Her House
Currently promoting the latest Hunger Games film, Mockingjay – Part I with fellow stars Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson, Lawrence spoke to the Telegraph about the anxiety she has of constantly being surrounded by paparazzi (which is just terrible), and her new Ikea couch.
A Kentucky native, Jennifer explained that she moved to LA when she was 14, and she’s still adjusting to the lifestyle that comes with being a big name, Oscar winning actress.
“There are wonderful, wonderful things that come with the job but there are difficulties that come with it too,” she says. “I have perspective because I didn’t grow up in this business. I’m not from Hollywood, I’m from Kentucky. I didn’t become successful until a few years ago and I’m very aware of what the real world is and how much a couch costs.”
Because of how outrageously expensive LA prices are, when Lawrence recently furnished her new home, she bought her couch from Ikea! “It doesn’t matter how much money I make,” she said, “Unfairness in prices really fires me up. Like shopping in L.A and a tee-shirt costs $150.”
Who doesn’t love Ikea?!
She added, “But it’s important to stay grounded, so I don’t know. I’m figuring it out. Or trying to.”
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part I will be released in three days, on November 20th!
