Jennifer: Honestly, I'm just doing my best ... But if people want to start the backlash, I'm the captain of that team. As much as you hate me, I'm 10 steps ahead of you.
Jennifer: (on believing that she could start to be too famous) Nobody can stay beloved forever. I never believed it, the whole time. I was like, just wait: People are going to get sick of me. My picture is everywhere, my interviews are everywhere; I'm way too annoying because I get on red carpets and I'm really hyper, most likely because I've been drinking, and I can't not photo-bomb somebody if it's a good opportunity. But it's something I always tell myself: 'You need to calm the f--- down. You don't want to constantly be a GIF.'
Jennifer: Humor and intelligence are key. Looks fade very quickly. I love a unique mind. Somebody who's his own person.
Jennifer: (on her relationship with Kristen Steward) There was something in a magazine, and I was like, 'Oh, my God, that's hilarious,' because Kristen and I are friends," Lawrence explained. "I actually texted her a picture of it and was like, 'Just so you know, this is absolutely true.'
Jennifer: (on her and her boyfriend's, Nicholas Hoult, busy life) We're so young that it would almost be like if we lived in the same city, what would happen? We'd be living together. At least this way he's in the same boat as I am: We can go out and have our own lives and know that we have each other.
Jennifer: (on her relationship with her boyfriend Nicholas Hoult) When we're busy, we agree to mutually ignore each other. Not completely, but neither of us gets mad when the other doesn't text back or call. Life's super-busy.
Jennifer: (on the cast of the movie X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014)) It was really exciting because this was the best cast ever
Jennifer: (on her X-Men co-star and boyfriend, Nicholas Hoult) He's a fantastic actor, wonderful costar, great roommate.
Jennifer: I like when things are hard; I'm very competitive. If something seems difficult or impossible, it interests me.
Jennifer: I don't diet. I do exercise! But I don't diet. You can't work when you're hungry, you know?
Jennifer: (about learning archery for her role of Katniss in The Hunger Games) It's annoying how perfect it had to be. You'd do one thing wrong, and you'd get whipped.
Jennifer: (about acting) I've always studied people and been fascinated by their reactions and feelings. And I think that's the best acting class you can take – watching real people, listening to them and studying them.
Jennifer: (about her ability to dance) I'm a horrible dancer!... I'm like a dad at prom... I look like Gumby getting electrocuted.
Jennifer: (on auditions) The miserable ones are the ones where all the girls auditioning are in the same room. There's no talking in those rooms. I've tried.
