Jennifer Lawrence wears lots of feathers in the October issue of W magazine. The 22-year-old actress models with birds in different pieces from Alexander McQueen, Prabal Gurung, Alberta Ferretti, and the Vivienne Westwood Gold Label. On the cover she has on a black feather and organza gown from the Calvin Klein Collection and Urstadt Swan gloves.
In the interview she opens up on Silver Linings, The Hunger Games, and living in Los Angeles.
On auditioning for the role in Silver Linings: “I did. But I didn’t mind. People always worry that I’m wrong for the part: I’m usually too young—or, in the case of Katniss, they thought I was too old. I was blonde, and Katniss is brunette. So many problems. There were a lot of things that we just brushed under the rug.”
On being skilled at archery: “I do love archery. I could kill someone with a bow and arrow if they’d hold still! With Hunger Games, I got really nervous about signing on to that huge franchise. I was afraid that Katniss would overwhelm any other character I’d try to do. But I love Katniss, and she didn’t take over as much of my life as I thought she would.”
On her mom spilling the beans that she would be in Hunger Games: “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.”
On her feelings on the movie business and Los Angeles: “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.”
