JLaw: I treat my family

Jennifer Lawrence

Jennifer Lawrence likes knowing she can give her family “peace of mind” with her money.

The 23-year-old actress has become one of the most sought-after movie stars in the business over the years and won an Oscar for her role in Silver Linings Playbook.

While she remains down-to-earth about her celebrity status, Jennifer is grateful that it benefits her loved ones

“Fame doesn’t mean much to me, but I do love being in a position where I can help my family. That’s been a real blessing – it’s a wonderful feeling to know that after everything my parents sacrificed to get me to this place, I can now give them so peace of mind and take care of whatever they need,” she explained to Psychologies magazine. “My family is the reason why I am where I am and who I am, and my brothers are the most important people to me. One of my brothers has a baby, and to know that I can help him pay for my nephew’s education if he ever needs it is great.

“My other brother really enjoys travelling, and I love that I can surprise him with a flight to Australia or whoever he wants to go. Being able to do those kinds of things for all of them is the best thing that’s ever happened to me.”

When asked if there are any times she wants to spoil herself, Jennifer insisted she is happy with the small things in life. She credits her relatives for keeping her modest and making the most of what she’s got.

“I don’t have expensive tastes. I’ve been driving the same car for years now and I’m not about to go and buy a Porsche or something,” she added. “My family always taught me to have good sense when it comes to money, so just because I have some money now doesn’t mean that I have to go and spend it! I’m at my happiest something simple things and hanging out with my friends and my family.”

You're tired of compromising for the sake of a demanding partner. Being more assertive is critical to the survival of your relationship. You should have your desires met, too.More
