Jennifer Lawrence Quotes

Jennifer Lawrence Quotes On Acting

Not to sound rude, but [acting] is stupid. Everybody’s like “How can you remain with a level head?”. And I’m like “Why would I ever get cocky? I’m not saving anybody’s life. There are doctors who save lives and firemen who run into burning buildings. I’m making movies. It’s stupid.”

Even as far back as

Even as far back as when I started acting at 14, I never considered failure.

Acting, films, scripts, is literally the only thing I’m 100 percent confident in. I know what I’m doing. I just understand it, and I love it. When I’m on set, that’s when I feel the most at home and in control.

Jennifer Lawrence Quotes On Body Image

“You look how you look,” “Be comfortable. What are you going to do? Be hungry every single day to make other people happy? That’s just dumb.”

This is hilarious. First, people say how so many actresses in Hollywood look anorexic, and now they are criticizing me for looking normal. Body images are too often adopted by young girls and women – thanks to what they are constantly being shown as being attractive.

You look how you look

Girls see enough of this body that we can’t imitate, that we’ll never be able to obtain, these unrealistic expectations…it’s better to look strong and healthy.

Jennifer Lawrence Quotes On Books

I couldn’t be happier about being a part of ‘Hunger Games’ and to play Katniss. I have a huge responsibility to the fans of this incredible book and I don’t take it lightly. I will give everything I have to these movies and to this role to make it worthy of Suzanne Collins’ masterpiece.

Knowledge is honestly

Knowledge is honestly everything. It’s not just books and staying behind a desk and having a diploma. There’s also traveling and knowledge about people, and what I do and scripts and books.

Yeah, when you’re making a film, the book is a good tool, but once you have the script and you’re making a movie, you have to let go of the book.

In a short amount of time, I’ve lived so much, had so many experiences and met so many different types of people and even lived in so many countries. If I had been in school, I’d be learning about the world from books.

Sometimes if a script is based on a book, that’s what you should do: represent the book.

Jennifer Lawrence Quotes On Character

I never play characters that are like me because I’m a boring person. I wouldn’t want to see me in a movie.

But really, for the most part – doing a prequel is great because you do have room to kind of free this character and how they got to where they are instead of being a slave to exactly what the previous actor did.

I'm always terrified before

I’m always terrified before every movie because I haven’t found her [the character], and I don’t get it. [Without acting, I’d have] become a nurse.

I do have some kind of gravitational pull towards young characters with more responsibility than they should have.

I want to play a character I’ve never been before-a crazy serial killer like Charlize Theron in Monster. I’d love to have to shave my head.

Jennifer Lawrence Quotes On Children

I think all mothers are a nightmare – i don’t think you can have children and not lose your goddamn mind.

Everybody has this idea: You have children, and your entire life is complete. That’s how I imagine it. I imagine I’ll have children and then my whole life will just seem complete.

You can have children and love them with all your heart and soul, and love your family, and it’s still OK to have a fire in you. That doesn’t have anything to do with your family.

Jennifer Lawrence Quotes On Choice

You have a choice. You don’t have to be a person who spreads negativity and lies for a living. You can do something good. You can be good. Let’s just make that choice and — it feels better.

I promise you, anybody given the choice of that kind of money or having to make a phone call to tell your dad that something like that has happened, it’s not worth it.

It's my body, and it

It’s my body, and it should be my choice, and the fact that it is not my choice is absolutely disgusting.

Be strong. Don’t be a follower, and always do the right thing. If you have a choice between the right thing and the wrong thing, the right way is always the less stressful.

Jennifer Lawrence Quotes On Dad

When I dance, I look like I’m a dad at a prom. I never grasped my limbs. Ever since puberty I’ve just kind of felt like we don’t understand each other.

I never wanted to be an actor. My dad was an actor, and he never brought joy home, so I didn’t view it as something that I would want to do.

I had to learn how to chop wood actually – I don’t think my dad would have let me go chop wood in the backyard growing up.

Jennifer Lawrence Quotes On Expactations

We [need to] stop treating each other like that, stop calling each other fat and stop with these unrealistic expectations for women. It’s disappointing that the media keeps it alive and fuels that fire.

I learned that you can’t have any expectations with life. You never know what’s going to happen.

Girls see enough of this body that we can’t imitate, that we’ll never be able to obtain, these unrealistic expectations…it’s better to look strong and healthy.

Jennifer Lawrence Quotes On Eyes

Everything that we think

Everything that we think comes across in our eyes. Our eyes really are the windows to our souls, and that’s why at least I can tell when somebody doesn’t mean what they’re saying – if you just look at them in the eye.

I’m from Kentucky. I used to be very personable and make eye contact and smile at people, and now all I do is look down. When I’m at dinner and one person after another keeps interrupting to take pictures, it’s like, “I can’t live like this.”

Jennifer Lawrence Quotes On Film

I just love film making; all aspects of it. I love the idea of writing but I just don’t feel like I could really do it. I didn’t even graduate from school.

I tried to avoid making plays or films that weren’t telling a story that I felt was important. And what I discovered in the process is, it makes you more empathic because you have to enter someone else’s reality and you learn to see through many other people’s eyes.

I never imagined myself as an actor who would be in films. I always only thought of myself being in a play or a musical.

More women have to be in charge of studios, so that they can greenlight films with women.

Acting, films, scripts, is literally the only thing I’m 100 percent confident in. I know what I’m doing. I just understand it, and I love it. When I’m on set, that’s when I feel the most at home and in control.

Yeah, when you’re making a film, the book is a good tool, but once you have the script and you’re making a movie, you have to let go of the book.

Jennifer Lawrence Quotes On Fun

Anybody that makes fun of me, I’m like, ‘Yeah, and then I got touched by Hugh Jackman’

My run is so weird. That’s what I’m most nervous about in this whole ordeal. I’m most nervous about everybody making fun of the way I run. I do, like, karate hands. Instead of running with my hands closed together like a normal person. It’s like I’m trying to be aerodynamic or something, so my hands are straight like razors. Karate hands.
