Jennifer Lawrence is one of Hollywood’s funniest and most quotable actresses. She always says what she wants, and we can never get enough. Here are the 25 best JLaw quotes ever to hold you over until you get to see her on the big screen this weekend in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.
Only Jennifer Lawrence can fall up the stairs at the Oscars and still make the world jealous! After her fall, she said "Anybody who makes fun of me [for falling], I'm just gonna go, 'Yeah, and then I got touched by Hugh Jackman."
We couldn't agree more. Jennifer is always honest—especially when it comes to her thoughts on food!
Speaking of being honest, Jennifer told Marie Claire South Africa, "I’d rather look chubby on screen and like a person in real life." Touche.
Jennifer goes even further with the body image talk by telling Glamour, "I hate saying, 'I like exercising' — I want to punch people who say that."
Quoting Mean Girls while accepting a People's Choice Award has got to be a first.
Jen also takes dressing casual to a whole new level!
Jennifer won the Oscar for Best Actress, but if only there was one for funniest speech. Remember when she admitted to drinking before speaking to the reporters? "I'm sorry, I took a shot before coming back here. Sorry!"
Everyone loved Jennifer's performance in the first Hunger Games, but she wasn't as convinced. Staying extremely modest, she once told David Letterman "Don’t go see the movies, I’m a troll. I think the movie was great, but their biggest mistake was me.”
Another classic J.Law on David Letterman moment was where she talks about being on the red carpet. "It’s so scary. And then I end up getting so nervous that I get like [I am] now. I get really hyper. [Squeals.] So then I go in interviews and I’m like, ‘I’m like a chihuahua! I’m shaking and peeing!’ And then afterwards, I’m like, ‘I just talked about peeing on the red carpet."
Only JLaw could get away with saying this on the Oscars red carpet!
Why would we want Jennifer Lawrence to say something normal?!
On her dancing skills, J Law says, "I'm a horrible dancer! I'm like a dad at prom. I look like Gumby getting electrocuted." But Silver Linings Playbook has us thinking otherwise...
At Comic Con this year, Jennifer told everyone about the hardest parts of her training. "I had to have running training because I'm not a very good runner. I run weird. ... The hardest stunt is probably basic running. And trying not to hit myself in the face with my bow, are my two greatest challenges."
In the recent Catching Fire Google+ hangout, Jen was asked who was a better kisser, Liam Hemsworth or Josh Hutcherson, her response? "How about we have them kiss each other and let them decide?"
To Rolling Stone, Jennifer came clean about some of her other talents besides acting: “I’m the fastest pee-er ever. I’m famous for it.”
"What’s anal leakage? Dash, Jen Lawrence!" This quote to David Letterman on a hypothetical tweet explains exactly why Jennifer shouldn't have a Twitter.
Victoria's Secret voted Jennifer "sexiest eyes". What did she have to say about it? "Eyes?! What? From Victoria's Secret? I thought it was going to be like boobs or butt or something. My eyes? I'm mad."
The real reason why she cut her hair? In a Yahoo Q&A, Jen said “I don’t know, I cut it earlier, and it was just kind of like [shoulder-length] and it grew to that awkward, gross length, and I just kept putting it back in a bun, and I said, ‘Well I don’t want to do this,’ so I just cut it off. It just couldn’t get any uglier.”
"I picked up an issue of Cosmopolitan the other day that had tips for job interviews, because I was like, 'I need to get better at interviews'. The article was basically about how to get someone not to hate you in 20 minutes. Every single thing they told you not to do, I was like, 'I do that every day'." Aw. We all still love Jennifer anyway.
“Not to sound rude, but [acting] is stupid. Everybody’s like, ‘How can you remain with a level head?’ And I’m like, ‘Why would I ever get cocky? I’m not saving anybody’s life. There are doctors who save lives and firemen who run into burning buildings. I’m making movies. It’s stupid." -Jennifer Lawrence in an interview with Vanity Fair
Jen's best advice to kids growing up today? “Don’t worry about the bitches in school — that could be a good motto, because you come across people like that throughout your life.”
While we would all line up to see a movie based on Jennifer Lawrence's life, she says, “I never play characters that are like me because I’m a boring person. I wouldn’t want to see me in a movie."
She's even funny when she's angry! Talking about paparazzi to Entertainment Weekly, Jen said, “I wrap myself up to look like Lord Voldemort so that they can’t see anything because the thought of giving them a picture that will make them money absolutely infuriates me."
"You look how you look, so be comfortable. What are you going to do — be hungry every single day to make other people happy? That's just dumb." Jennifer Lawrence on bullying and body image. So inspiring.
