Jennifer Lawrence looks amazing in the coveted September Vogue issue
Her interview with Vogue for the cover of their coveted September issue reads more like a catch-up sesh (albeit 7 hours long) over drinks. And that's exactly how it started on a Friday at 1pm: with vodka and a beer.
Lawrence chats with Jonathan Van Meter about her life in the spotlight and its vast challenges. She acknowledges that people don't often understand or like it when celebrities complain about being famous, but as is clear during their interview, it's difficult for her to adjust. And rightfully so, because when you're nominated right out of the gate for an Oscar and then sign up for a blockbuster like The Hunger Games, the catapult to fame can be overwhelming.
On how she relates to Katniss:
"When Winter's Bone was getting nominated," says Lawrence, "I had only done indies, and suddenly I was introduced to this brand-new world where I didn't feel like myself. I was in these weird gowns and listening to people talk about things I didn't understand. And I remember reading that in the book and being like, Oh, my God, I know exactly what this feels like. I don't know what it's like to get ready for your death, but I do know what it's like to be almost a puppet. And then when I was making the second film, I had become more acquainted with that world, and I think that's something that Katniss experiences. She is different when she comes back. She does feel more comfortable in the Capitol; she understands the people more, and it's not as eerie and scary and unfamiliar. She kind of knows how to work the system."
