Jennifer Lawrence: Oscar is awkward

Jennifer Lawrence's parents are keeping her Academy Award because she felt "odd" having it in her own home.

The 22-year-old star won the Academy Award for Best Actress for her role in Silver Linings Playbook this year.

But Jennifer isn't keen to have the gold statuette as a constant reminder.

"If anybody's coming over to my house, I didn't want them to remember that. Just kind of puts a weird energy out," she told Access Hollywood.

Jennifer went so far as to banish the award from her Los Angeles home after her first attempt to showcase it massively failed.

Her parents now have it for safe keeping after her mother agreed it shouldn't be in her possession.

"I put it in the hallway towards the bathroom, and my mom was like, 'I'm taking it. It shouldn't be here.' And now it's on a piano in Kentucky!" she said, musing, "I felt odd having it, like, on display in my house."

Jennifer also opened up about giving advice to Divergent star Shailene Woodley.

The 21-year-old was nervous about the negative effects of being in the spotlight but Jennifer was able to put her at ease.

"She asked, basically, 'If you had the opportunity to do this again, would you? Because it's scary. It's life changing," the actress recalled.

"And I said, 'Yes. As many things change, as many things are horrible and scary, it's worth it if you love the movie,' which she did."
