Jennifer Lawrence: Secrets are stressful

Jennifer Lawrence

Jennifer Lawrence is glad she's honest as she believes leading a secret life would be "so stressful".

The Hunger Games actress discussed her meteoric rise to fame in a new interview with Total Film. The 22-year-old does feel the pressure that comes from living up to expectations and being a role model for young women.

"I'm so happy I don't have a secret life, because that would be so stressful," she laughed to the magazine.

Jennifer has been awarded a string of prizes in recognition of her acting talents, including a best actress Oscar for Silver Linings Playbook.

She described winning the award as a double edged sword.

"It's over whelming but it's an honour," she smiled.

"It's like getting a promotion at your job, but when you get that promotion, you can't leave your house."

Jennifer has been praised for her ability to adapt to many different roles. She joked that she doesn't have any special method to approaching her films other than going in with a blank mind.

"I don't have a way of doing anything, so I mould to whatever the director likes. I find that easier to do when I don't have anything set in my mind and I can just show up. Acting is just talking," she pondered. "If I start over-thinking it, then I don't feel natural."

Jennifer has had to rethink her future plans after the popularity of The Hunger Games.

She reflected on how she'll have to reconsider the original role she had planned for herself in light of her success.

"I've always had this imaginary future where I would be this soccer mom that drove a mini-van and my kids were normal..." she reflected. “That didn't fit with taking on a giant franchise."
