LOS ANGELES-Jennifer Lawrence first started to feel ‘’insecure’’ last year, which she pits down to feeling she has ‘’more to lose’’ now she is an Oscar-winning actress.
The 27-year-old actress has received four Oscar nominations in her career and picked up the Best Actress statuette for her role in ‘Silver Linings Playbook’ at the Academy Awards in 2013, and she admitted the more successful she’s become, the more she’s worried people will get ‘’sick’’ of her and she won’t live up to expectations.
In an interview conducted by Oprah Winfrey for The Hollywood Reporter magazine’s Women in Entertainment issue, the ‘Joy’ star said: ‘’[With success comes] fear. You’re immediately hit with fear. Or at least I was. I had been climbing and working and fighting, and I remember last year just getting hit with fear. All of a sudden it was, ‘They’re going to get sick of me.’
‘’That’s when all my insecurity came. I’ve been probably more insecure after last year, and I don’t know if that’s just a feeling of: I’ve got more to lose, I have more people to disappoint. I don’t know how to explain it.’’
Despite her fame and success, Jennifer considers her lifestyle to be ‘’pretty normal’’ because she drives to her appointments herself, and she has claimed she doesn’t have the wild social life people would assume.
She explained: ‘’It’s really not hard. People imagine my life being [different]. It’s actually pretty normal. I drove myself to the laser hair removal today. I have always been a homebody.
‘’ My social life has always been very boring: I sit around outside my house with my friends and drink wine, and that hasn’t really changed. I don’t really like to go out.’’
But the ‘The Hunger Games’ star has hinted her ‘’boring’’ life is due to the long working hours of her movie career.
She said: ‘’I have friends who come and visit me when I’m on sets. It’s just annoying because you have to work 13, 14 hour days. So sometimes it’s not nice to have my friends there, just because I feel bad and I have to work. I actually have the most amazing neighbourhood tribe.’’
