Jennifer Lawrence is on the cover of Vogue Magazine‘s September 2013 issue!
Excerpts from the interview:
David O. Russell on Jennifer: “When she first showed up on the set ofSilver Linings, she was asking Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro what it’s like to have people come up to you on the street. That wasn’t really happening to her. People didn’t really know who she was. But by the time the film was released and we did an event in Santa Barbara, it was like being at a Beatles concert.”
David O. Russell on Bradley Cooper and Jennifer “I remember Bradley Cooper and I saying, ‘Is this kid even paying attention?’ Because she’s goofing around or eating my potato chips or making fart jokes. And then all of a sudden, she comes in, and bam! She’s like a lot of great athletes. You see that they stay loose, and that’s how they can be so in-the-moment while under enormous amounts of pressure. If there’s two minutes left in the game, they can come in and do something extraordinary because their jaw is not getting clenched. Jen stays loose. And then she hits a three-point shot from some ridiculous distance and we all just look at each other and go, ‘Wow.’”
Francis Lawrence on Jennifer: “It’s all spontaneous; it all comes out of her gut, in the moment. I’ve never seen anything like it.”
She was always going to be famous: “I’ve never said this before because there is no way to say it without it being completely misunderstood… But I always knew” — here she lowers her voice — “that I was going to be famous.”
On Fame: “I am just not OK with it. It’s as simple as that. I am just a normal girl and a human being, and I haven’t been in this long enough to feel like this is my new normal. I’m not going to find peace with it. If I were just your average 23-year-old girl, and I called the police to say that there were strange men sleeping on my lawn and following me to Starbucks, they would leap into action. But because I am a famous person, well, sorry, ma’am, there’s nothing we can do. It makes no sense.”
