Jennifer Lawrence apparently regrets the fact she is famous, as reported by the Spanish website, Mujerhoy.com. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire celebrity told the website in an interview that fame has essentially “ruined her life.”
It’s not often that celebrities speak so openly about the challenges of being famous, especially not in the way Jennifer Lawrence did. She said that she hates the fact that she has lost her freedom and cannot go hang out in a coffee shop without being bombarded by fans.
Here’s some of what she had to say in the interview: “My personal life is now ruined. I’ve had to create a new one and get used to this new life. It’s hard and it takes time, but I’m sure I will get it.”
Lawrence then continued to speak in even more serious terms about how she feel that fame has robbed her and actually makes her sad:
“I’m just mourning my old life. I miss that. I don’t want to forget what it’s like going to a coffee shop and people looking at me like a normal person. A part of me can’t get used to it and it makes me sad,” she said.
Jennifer Lawrence is just 23-years-old and is already an Oscar winner and a well known celebrity. She even admitted to feeling uneasy when she plays her character in The Hunger Games, Katniss Everdeen:
“It is funny how she and I have made this trip together from the beginning. In the first movie they force her to wear make-up, wear dresses and people talk about things that she doesn’t understand. I know exactly how she feels… I experienced the same thing. This can be a very weird world, but after a while, you’re not afraid anymore and you can handle it.”
In a way, it is quite refreshing to hear a young celebrity talk openly and honestly about this subject. Most members of the public just assume that celebrities and famous people love their fame and lap it up.
