Jennifer Lawrence is preparing to move on from The Hunger Games, a franchise that has brought her fame and fortune, and heading for an uncertain future that has left Jennifer questioning her role in Hollywood and her life as a single, successful actress.
Jennifer Lawrence Considers Her Love Life As A Successful Actress
Topping off her thoughts, Jennifer really opened up about her romantic life for the first time and, as Ms. Lawrence confessed, she’s not the kind of cold, weathered woman people usually expect of Hollywood actresses. In fact, as Lawrence talked about the men she meets treating her unusually cruel, The Hunger Games actress said that, although she understands that they’re trying to establish dominance, the behavior still hurts.
Jennifer added that no one ever asks her out. Ms. Lawrence seemed more serious than satirical when she suggested she might be better off meeting a guy who has spent the past five years lost in the Middle East, so that he has never heard of her.
Jennifer revealed just how attached she was to her last love interest, Chris Martin, as she spoke of moving on from him and from the two franchises that helped to establish Ms. Lawrence as a force to be reckoned with in Hollywood.
“‘Who am I without these movies? Who am I without this man?’ It was always ‘we.’ It sounds so young to say that but it’s true,” Lawrence said, according to Newsday.
Speaking further about what she wants from her personal life, Ms. Lawrence seemed to have changed her ideas about what she wants. Jennifer said marriage is no longer in the cards for her, though Lawrence adds that she does want children. Being bold and truthful, Lawrence said she doesn’t feel as though she needs any one person to make her feel complete.
“I love meeting people—men, women, whatever, I love people coming into your life and bringing something.”

Jennifer Lawrence is more than just another beautiful Hollywood face. The Joy actress is actually very opinionated, when it comes to political issues and she expressed deep shame that she shares the same origins as Rowan County clerk, Kim Davis.
Speaking of her native state of Kentucky, Ms. Lawrence added “all those people holding their crucifixes, which may as well be pitchforks, thinking they’re fighting the good fight. I grew up in Kentucky. I know how they are.”
Jennifer admitted that she was raised in a Republican household, but through the years, Jenn’s allegiances have changed, and Lawrence can no longer keep quiet about the injustices she witnesses, nor about the unfair treatments she experiences firsthand. Jennifer added that this was the driving force behind her recent wage gap essay.
“I felt like I had had to say something because we need to talk about it,” Ms. Lawrence said. “I would just hope that there’s no longer a separation or a difference of, ‘oh, it’s a female-driven movie,’ or, ‘it was a blockbuster, but it was led by a woman.’”
Still, people shouldn’t get the idea that Jennifer Lawrence is a lonely spinster concentrated on business and politics, because she reveals there is much more to her than that. She has friends, chief among them, of course, is Amy Schumer, reports The Daily Beast.
Lawrence revealed that their friendship has blossomed quickly over the past six months and that they are both now fiercely loyal and protective of one another. While Jennifer is younger than Amy, she achieved fame more quickly than Schumer, so Lawrence looks out for her new best friend in that way.
Jennifer has also made new friends with her closer neighbors, Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher.
“And I’ve made friends with Mila and Ashton, two doors down. They’re awesome. I go over there uninvited. They’re probably getting pretty sick of me.”
