Jennifer Lawrence is a singular celebrity, in a world of smoke a mirrors a refreshing breath of frank fresh air that has made her so well loved by the masses and the media alike.
Jennifer has landed the cover of the September issue of Vogue this year, a huge coup for the bright young star, and the accompanying spread and interview is every bit as charming and beautiful as the girl herself.
Shot by Mario Testino, the actress looks absolutely incredible on the cover, and totally herself- frolicking in the spread with a host of puppies in the great outdoors. As you would expect from the unexpected woman that is J.Law, she is frank and totally at ease in the corresponding interview by Jonathan Van Meter.
According to Van Meter, Lawrence, upon seeing he had a broken leg and a cocktail in front of him asks “Should we just get drunk?” and orders a beer which turns into what he describes as a “into a seven-hour bender.” Most twenty somethings might have been uncomfortable with the idea of drinking for seven hours with a fifty year old Vogue journalist…but such is the nature of Lawrence.
The interview is funny, genuine and full of laughs and anecdotes…
On her nickname J.Law and meeting J.Lo
She got the nickname J.Law in seventh grade, but it was only this spring that she met J.Lo while hanging out at a party one night with Jimmy Fallon. “We planned out this whole thing, where we were going to spin around and over to her and go, ‘Please dance with us!’ But at the last minute, Jimmy pooped out, and all of a sudden I spun around by myself and said, ‘Dance with . . . me?’ And she was like, ‘Thanks, I’m just gonna watch.’ ”
On getting a haircut on a cruise ship:
“My family went on a cruise, and I got a terrible haircut. FYI: Never get your hair cut on a cruise. And I had, like, this blonde curly ‘fro, and I walked into the gym the first day back in seventh grade and everyone was staring at me, and for some reason I thought, I know what I need to do! And I just started sprinting from one end of the gym to the other, and I thought it was hilarious. But nobody else at that age really did. It was genuinely weird.”
On her new role in American Hustle
“Rosalyn is 100 percent a product of David’s imagination,” she says. “She’s a manic-depressive alcoholic, and I couldn’t wait. Plus, I got to make out with Christian Bale…I couldn’t say no,” she says. “And then when I was on set, I was like, ‘This is so much more important than a vacation. It’s so much better for my brain to be creatively stimulated in this way.’ It reminded me: This is what I love.”
