Jennifer Lawrence explained why she’s rude to fans
While she seems like someone you’d click with the moment you officially met, you may want to proceed with caution. Actress Jennifer Lawrence is rude to fans — but wait, there’s a reason.
Lawrence explained her behavior in Variety‘s “Actors on Actors” video series, where she was interviewed by comedian and actor Adam Sandler for a little over 30 minutes. The two were able to have a pretty candid conversation about how to handle negative movie reviews and less-than-ideal fan interactions.
Sandler admitted that he gets “some love on the streets” every day, which Lawrence could relate to. He even said that people often pull up a chair while he’s out in public or approach him for a selfie. Lawrence admitted that it’s much harder for her when she sees fans — despite the fact that she is, as Sandler referred to her, “famously light and approachable.”
"Once I enter a public place, I become incredibly rude," Lawrence stated. "That's like my only defense."
We can understand where she’s coming from — since she’s so likable on screen and during interviews, some fans must feel as if she’d be down for a spontaneous chat, or an impromptu hug — and forget that they’re technically a stranger in Lawrence’s eyes.
Jennifer admitted that it’s even worse when she’s out with her friend Amy Schumer. While she’s fine with taking her dog for walks in the park, she said that things end up getting chaotic when Schumer meets up with them.
This isn’t the first time that Lawrence has discussed being a little distant while out in public.
"I think that people [strangers] think that we already are friends because I am famous and they feel like they already know me, but I don't know them," she said to The Daily Telegraph. "I have to protect my bubble, like, 'I have a weird job — don't let this be a reality.'"
So even if you manage to have a Jennifer Lawrence sighting in the near future, you might want to let her go about her day — while it’s always cool to see celebrities, you may end up making things a little awkward for both of you.
