Jennifer Lawrence: People Are Going to Get Sick of Me

Jennifer Lawrence says her advice to herself is, "You need to calm the f**k down."
Opening up to Marie Claire about her public persona, she says, "Nobody can stay beloved forever. I never believed it, the whole time. I was like, just wait: People are going to get sick of me. My picture is everywhere, my interviews are everywhere; I'm way too annoying because I get on red carpets and I'm really hyper, most likely because I've been drinking, and I can't not photo bomb somebody if it's a good opportunity."
The 23-year-old X-Men: Days of Future Past actress adds, "But it's something I always tell myself: 'You need to calm the f**k down. You don't want to constantly be a GIF.'"
Lawrence then responded to her critics that say her clumsiness is all an act. Recalling her tumble at the Oscars, she tells the women's magazine, "I'm trying to do the right thing, waving to the fans, trying to be nice, and there's a traffic cone. The second I hit it, I was laughing, but on the inside I was like, 'You're fucked. They're totally going to think this is an act.' If I were Jared Leto, I would completely agree. But trust me, if I was going to plan it, I would have done it at the Golden Globes or the SAGs. I would have never done it at two Oscars in a row. I watch Homeland--I'm craftier than that!"
She quips, "Honestly, I'm just doing my best. But if people want to start the backlash, I'm the captain of that team. As much as you hate me, I'm 10 steps ahead of you."
Are you sick of Jennifer Lawrence yet, or is the actress overreacting?
