Jennifer Lawrence W Magazine October 2012 Generation issue
The Hunger Games heroine and Oscar-nominated actress Jennifer Lawrence stars on the cover of W's October 2012 issue - their inaugural Generation W issue. Generation W is a tribute to those who embrace fashion as a way of expressing their creativity, and no one does that better than Jennifer Lawrence in this issue.
In her interview with Editor at Large Lynn Hirschberg, Lawrence comes across as the level-headed all-American girl in jeans and a T-shirt; but she's happy to reminisce about being naked for hours in order to be painted blue for her role as Mystique in X-Men: First Class--and to play the diva for photographer Tim Walker.
October's Generation W issue hits newsstands on September 25th.
Lawrence on whether she knew she had The Hunger Games role during this year's Oscars: "My mom talked about Hunger Games on the red carpet at the Academy Awards, which was something I had told her a million times not to do. She's like Dina Lohan!-- but she has good taste."
Lawrence on whether she could dance before her role in Silver Lining: "I'm such a bad dancer [laughs]. I don't have many talents: I'm not a good cook, I can't clean, and I can't sew. The only thing I can do well is shoot bow and arrow--which I learned to do for The Hunger Games and will probably never come in handy--and act."
Lawrence on her feelings about Hollywood and the movie business: "Sadly, I cannot live in Los Angeles anymore. I don't understand how actors can do it. You have no life here. You are followed everywhere. It's not like that anywhere else in the world. I don't want to stay in L.A. and start thinking that's reality-- because it's very far from normal. But I still love movies. I'm just going to love being in them from Kentucky, or Prague, or somewhere else."
