Although Jennifer Lawrence had never planned on becoming a big-named actress, she somehow always knew that one day, she’d end up being famous. That’s what the 22-year-old Oscar-winner reveals in her latest Vogue spread, the second time as a cover girl.
In the September 2013 issue, she says, “I’ve never said this before, because there is no way to say it without it being completely misunderstood, but ever since I was really little, I always had a very normal idea of what I wanted: I was going to be a mom and I was going to be a doctor and I was going to live in Kentucky. But I always knew that I was going to be famous.”
She continues, “I honest to God don’t know how else to describe it. I used to lie in bed and wonder, ‘Am I going to be a local TV person? Am I going to be a motivational speaker?’ It wasn’t a vision. But as it’s kind of happening, you have this buried understanding: Of course.”
Prior to her claim to fame in The Hunger Games, Jenn attempted to crack into the world of modeling. However, she told Conan O’Brien that things went awry when she got too into a photo shoot football game, and scared her fellow models: “I realized that they were model footballing and I was really playing football.” Fortunately, that was when she also realized that acting was a possibility, and soon pursued projects like The Bill Engvall Show, and years later, her Academy Award-nominated performance in Winter’s Bone. And the rest is history.
