Why J.Law Thinks She's 'Ageing Like A President'

'I hate waking up without a goal'


As one of Hollywood's most respected and sought after actresses, Jennifer Lawrence has already enjoyed a career that most actors can only dream of and yet she's still only 25. But it would appear that being the face of several blockbusters a year, as well as taking time to slam the Hollywood pay gap is starting to take its toll on the Hunger Games, Silver Linings Playbook, X Men, American Hustle (you get the idea) star.


During a press conference for Hunger Games Mockingjay - Part 2, Lawrence told reporters: 'I try to keep working so people can see other characters and other things I can do instead of taking vacation time, and now I'm aging like a president.'

'I hate waking up without a goal or going to sleep without achieving anything. There have been a few times where I would have loved time off, but I was very aware of how overwhelming these movies and this character was, and that was a big fear of mine signing on to these movies.'


She revealed that she works 'obsessively' to avoid going 'crazy', and then spoke about her feelings over The Hunger Games nearing completion, having been with the franchise for nearly four years. 

'I think it will be pretty bizarre when the movie is finally out and everything is officially done,' she said. 'There were a few years of getting used to it. Your entire world changes. Now it's very easy for me because I'm isolated. I have a new normal now. I feel very stable, and normal, and happy, but it took a few years to get used to being looked at differently. It's kind of an alienating feeling. You don't feel different but everyone reacts to you differently. Then it was 'OK, let's get back to work' and people react and can do whatever they want. That's fine and it's on them. I have a job. That's how I think of it.'

Earlier in the year, a photo of J.Law on a jetski with Amy Schumer nearly melted twitter, while it was later revealed that the two were working together on a 'sister' comedy, further adding to both of their hectic schedules.

We're sure it will be worth the extra wrinkles, though.
