Jennifer Lawrence has revealed that she is “nervous” about being back in the spotlight after taking a step back when she felt like “everyone had grown tired of me.”
The Oscar winner spoke to Vanity Fair magazine for her December issue cover story in an extensive interview, addressing the challenges of fame, a near-death experience, the trauma of having intimate photos leaked online, and the gender pay gap.
Lawrence, expecting a baby with her husband Cooke Maroney, will return to the screen with the Adam McKay comedy “Don’t Look Up.”
Speaking to Vanity Fair, the 31-year-old star said: “I’m so nervous … I haven’t talked to the world in forever. And to come back now, when I have all these new accessories added to my life that I obviously want to protect.” .
The interview touches on the films Lawrence worked on before stepping back from the spotlight, which included “Passengers,” “Mother!” “Red Sparrow” and “Dark Phoenix”.
“It wasn’t pumping the quality it should be,” he said. “I think everyone was tired of me. I was tired of me.”
Lawrence spoke with journalist Karen Valby.
Lawrence said that he had begun to think that he could not do anything right.
“If he was walking a red carpet, it was, ‘Why didn’t he run?’ … I think I have been pleasing people for most of my life, “he said.
Now Lawrence is pregnant and while she declined to talk about how she feels about becoming a mother, she shared her thoughts on protecting her child.
“Every instinct in my body wants to protect their privacy for the rest of their lives, as much as they can. I don’t want anyone to feel welcome in their existence. And I feel like that starts with not including them in this part of my job,” he said.
In 2014, a hacker leaked nude photos of Lawrence and other female celebrities. The actress spoke about the impact this has had on her.
“Anyone can look at my naked body without my consent, at any time of the day,” he said. “Someone in France just published them. My trauma will exist forever.”
He also recounted an experience from 2017 when a small private plane he was traveling in had to make a hard emergency landing after both engines failed.
