Jennifer Lawrence‘s life is changing.
After the Nov. 20 release of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2, she will no longer be tied down to a franchise movie. The actress opened up to Vogue about what that feels like.
“I want to get back to my roots, back to indies, where I started,” she says. “This is my first time saying yes now that I am completely free of franchises. So there’s an elephant on my chest…. Now it’s a lot harder. I’ve got to fill up my year with things that are all 100 percent my decisions.”
Jennifer also talked to the magazine about the isolation of fame. Hard to believe it, but the three-time Academy Award nominee says it’s hard for her to land a date these days.
“No one ever asks me out. I am lonely every Saturday night,” she says. “Guys are so mean to me. I know where it’s coming from, I know they’re trying to establish dominance, but it hurts my feelings. I’m just a girl who wants you to be nice to me.”
“I feel like I need to meet a guy, with all due respect, who has been living in Baghdad for five years who has no idea who I am.”
But fame isn’t all bad. Jennifer, who moved into a $8 million house in Los Angeles that formerly belonged to Jessica Simpson, says she gets along well with her new neighbors Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher. “They’re awesome. I go over there uninvited. They’re probably getting pretty sick of me,” she says.
Although Jennifer has since moved on from the Aug. 2014 nude photo leak that she called a “sex crime,” she reflected on the difficult time by saying it was “all pain and no gain.” However, during the whole ordeal, Jennifer talked about the time her mom gave her a puppy which brought happiness out of a horrible situation.
“I was outside crying, and Pippi jumped up on my lap and started licking up all my tears, and I couldn’t put her down for hours. And I mean, hours. I was like, ‘Well, obviously, you’re mine,’ ” she said.
