When stars win big at award shows, it is presumable that they will go out and celebrate until the early hours of the next morning. However, for Lawrence, who has recently won Best Actress at this year's SAG awards, she went home.
"I always go home," Lawrence said during her Nightline interview set to air tonight on ABCat 12:35 AM ET. "I stopped at Harvey's party, Harvey Weinstein's party, for a little bit. Got my parents drunk and then I left and went home."
Upon her arrival, Lawrence was greeted by her friends who were having a "Slumber-slash-awards-show-watch party at her house.
"My friends have started doing this thing where they will watch whatever awards show I'm at," Lawrence said. "None of them are really in the business, which is nice. They are more in touch with the real world.
Lawrence seems that way too, from the get-go of her acting career having acted as though fame has not affected who she truly is. Even with two Best Actress nominations, Lawrence is refreshing to the usual Hollywood spoiled image.
"I just have a very weird job," she said. "And if I remind myself of that, that it's nothing more than that, then I don't start thinking that it's more dramatic than it is."
It isn't surprising that Lawrence is this way. Having grown up surrounded by family in Louisville, KY., youngest of three brothers, Lawrence has always been a performer.
"My dad is trying to work, and I would be, "Wait, wait, wait,' and put on a new show where I would dress up as a person and knock on the door and be like, "Hi. My name's Judy and my car broke down, can I use your phone?'" She said, laughing. "And yet, none of us ever assumed I would be an actress."
Lawrence was discovered at the age of 14 while on vacation with her mother in New York City in Union Square.
"I had already caught the [acting] bug," Lawrence said. "It was the first time in my entire life that I felt I, 100 percent, was made for something and that I understood something, because I spent so many years being lost in school and feeling stupid."
While Lawrence had been successful in many of her projects, it wasn't until 2010 that Lawrence felt like she had finally made her big break.
"I'm still auditioning for things and I'm still like, 'Am I good at this or do these directors just like me?'" she said. "And then 'Winter's Bone' happened, and they loved the movie and then a couple years later, we were at the Oscars, and it was just unreal."
Make sure to tune in to ABC tonight for Lawrence's interview with Chris Connelly to find out why it took her days to accept her role as Katniss in "The Hunger Games" and why Meryl Streep leaves her star-struck.
