Jennifer Lawrence opens up about Googling herself

Miss Jennifer Lawrence — the talented, award-winning actress who has been totally crushing it on screen — has the incredibly ability to transform herself into the most interesting, dynamic cinematic characters. But, what we love most about her, really, is that she’s not afraid to be real and refreshingly honest. Most recently, she admitted she Googled herself. And the results? Not so wonderful.

During her most recent New York Times interview, the world-renowned superstar mentioned that she has, indeed, looked herself up on the web. “I’m so scared to say anything now. I can see every negative way that people can take it, and I don’t want to sound like I’m complaining. ‘Oh, she’s so conceited now. Oh, she’s so jaded now.’ It probably comes from Googling myself,” she explains. “If it were up to me, I would not talk. I would just act.”

First of all, it’s wonderful to hear someone in Hollywood talking about periods. Since this is a completely natural human woman process, we’d like more of this, please. And second of all, we 110% appreciate Jennifer’s brazenness, especially when it comes to discussing her insecurities —since we ALL have them.

“Why do I care what people think? But I do. I just can’t pretend I don’t care. I get really insecure about it,” the leading lady admits. “The world makes an opinion of you without ever meeting you. That worry should not bother me, but it does. It bothers me.”

Each and every one of us gets insecure about something. We all have those days where we feel as though it’s us against the world. To assume that celebrities don’t feel the same makes no sense. After all, they have a countless number of people watching and often times scrutinizing their every move.   

Also – you probably already know this already – but JLaw is a complete badass, especially when it comes to her work life and growing more confident in herself. “I believe in myself more, and that makes things easier,” she says. “Early on, you wear clothes you don’t want to wear or say the sound bite you didn’t want to say because you’re afraid to speak up or be rude. And then you start to feel like a puppet. Now I just speak up. ‘No, I know what my hair looks like when you do that, and I don’t like it. No, we’re not gonna just try it. I’ve already tried it.’” You go, girl!

To end this absolutely perfect interview with a human being who’s not afraid to be herself and live her truest life, Jennifer discusses her Hunger Games co-stars and how they’re still the best of friends. “I mean, this was yesterday: Woody texted me, and said he had a dream about me. And I was like, ‘Was I amazing?’” she quips.

Our answer? DUH.
