With her new movie "The Hunger Games" having just stormed into theaters, Jennifer Lawrence added to her many front page efforts by scorning the cover of the March 23, 2012 issue of IO Donna magazine.
The 21-year-old actress looked elegant in a colorful frock as she posed for Max Abadian while opening up about topics such as being discovered at age 14 and where she sees herself a few years from now.
Highlights from Miss Lawrence's interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to IO Donna!
On whether she feels ready for this big change:
"Yes, I'm ready, but also terrified. But then how do you feel ready for something you do not know? I ... I'm afraid."
On being discovered:
"By pure chance. I was 14, I was in New York with my mother, standing on the sidewalk watching a rap-dancer, when a guy with a camera comes up and asks permission to take a picture. 'Why not?' my mother says, amused ... In New York anything can happen. After a week I got a call at home and was asked to make a commercial. In short, I became a model, but without much enthusiasm. My agent, however, was always there, hammering: 'Would you rather be a successful model or actress who is starving?' For goodness sake, I have not had a moment's hesitation."
On the runaway success of the 'Hunger Games' trilogy:
"We live in a world obsessed with reality shows, we use the personal tragedies to entertain the audience and we want to shock people to succeed."
On where she sees herself in a few years:
"With a family and many children. Acting is my job, but it is only a small part of my life, certainly not the most important. What really counts for me is to build lasting bonds."
