Jennifer Lawrence Shares How Fame Changed Her Life And How She Started To Become Independent

Jennifer Lawrence will forever be remembered as Katniss Everdeen in the hit trilogy films of “Hunger Games” saga. She has captivated a lot of supporters with her breakthrough character in her career. In a recent interview, she shared how everything changed in her life and how she did in her humble beginning.

According to Fresh Air, as cited by St. Louis Public Radio, Lawrence told the story way back when she planned on having an independent life after saving the sufficient money from babysitting and she rented out an apartment infested with rats. She wanted to prove something to herself and eventually she was able to adjust to this.

Lawrence shared, “Night was horrible, that’s when [the rats] all come out. I wouldn’t go to the bathroom. My dad still talks about that. He says, “That’s when I knew you were serious.” I think that that was the turning point for my dad, letting me do this because he came and saw the conditions I was living in. No hot water, there was no kitchen, it was a closet with a hot plate….’

How did she end up as the Katniss Everdeen we love? NPR reported, at first, Lawrence was a bit doubtful of taking the role but at the end she didn’t miss the opportunity.

“A yes-or-no question very rarely changes your entire life. I mostly just said, ‘You know what? I love this character. I love this movie. I believe in it, and I’m going to say ‘yes’ for the same reasons that I would say ‘yes’ to any indie,”  Lawrence explained.

If there’s one thing that fame changed her, it became her top reason of not getting out of the house.

Lawrence added: “I’m a total homebody. … I’m always looking for excuses not to go out. I can now use fame as an excuse…and I do.”
