Jennifer Lawrence doesn't understand why people are intimidated by her as she tries her best to offset her Hollywood star status.

Jennifer Lawrence doesn't have "a type" when it comes to dating.

The star, who once dated British actor Nicholas Hoult and was most recently linked to Coldplay front man Chris Martin, admits that she isn't seeing any one at present and that she doesn't pursue a look or type when it comes to relationships.

"I don't think (I have a type)... because patterns are the work of the devil," she told U.S. Harper's Bazaar. "If I think about all of my ex-boyfriends, they are all so uncomparable (sic)."

The 25-year-old thinks part of the reason she's single is because of her success and the confidence she exudes. Speaking candidly, Jennifer went on to explain she feels that sometimes people are threatened by her, even though she tries her best to offset her status as a major Hollywood star.

"There is zero reason to be intimidated by me. At all. But I also understand it," she smiled.

The Academy Award winner, who is currently starring in X-Men: Apocalypse, also spoke about feminism and argued that the film industry needs to take the equality more seriously.

Jennifer's outspokeness about the issue reached a crescendo with her essay for Lena Dunham's Lenny newsletter last year (15) about equal pay in Hollywood. While she understands why people aim "poor rich girl" jokes at her, she stands by what she previously stated.

"I was saying my reality is absolutely fabulous, but it is not the reality of a lot of women in America. That's what I'm talking about," she sighed, adding that people shouldn't be scared to use the word feminism, "as it just means equality".

X-Men: Apocalypse is set to hit theatres in the U.K. and U.S. in May (16).
