Jennifer Lawrence may be a Hollywood star whose star is shining brightly but it wasn’t always the case for the award-winning actress. In an interview with The Sun, Lawrence admits to being bullied in her younger years (Page Six, March 7).
Lawrence says she was forced to switch schools several times in elementary school because of bullying. She also tells of when another girl had her pass out invitations to party in which she was not invited. Lawrence got payback, she says: “I just hocked a loogie on them and threw them in the trash can.” She goes on to say: “Don’t worry about the b*tches — that could be a good motto, because you come across people like that throughout your life.”
Lawrence isn’t dwelling on the past or letting it define her. After shooting to stardom in “The Hunger Games” and “X-Men,” the 22-year old won an Oscar for “Silver Linings Playbook.” Her fame isn’t going to her head and she certainly doesn’t see herself as a star, much less a sex-symbol: "As for being a sex symbol, I don't think of myself as sexy and, obviously, it's not true. I'm going to try to push that out of my mind because it makes me queasy."
While her attitude is refreshing, Lawrence clearly does not see what the rest of the world sees. When viewing her ads for Christian Dior for the first time during an interview, Lawrence praised the virtues of Photoshop. Tthe interviewer responded with:"I don't think that's Photoshop, that's you." to which Jennifer said "Of course it's Photoshop. People don't look like that."
