Even as far back as when I started acting at 14, I know I’ve never considered failure.
I’d like to take a year off, that would be a dream. But who could do that? Probably won’t be able to.
“I’ve just gotten into the Academy, which is really exciting for me. That’s exciting for any actor. And I get a call from my mother while I was in England and she goes, ‘I did something hilarious.’ And I’m thinking, What? And she’s like, ‘I voted.’ And I was like, ‘You voted for what?’ ‘The Oscars.’ And I was like, ‘You voted for the Oscars? What do you mean?’ And she goes, ‘The ballot came here and I voted!’ Cause she thought I’d be like, ‘That’s hilarious.’ I’m going to get kicked out of the Academy! Fortunately, she did it wrong and mailed it and mailed it back to herself, so I got to do it again.” - Jennifer Lawrence
I feel normal I expect to be treated normally and I’m trying to be being patient with the fact that that’s not exactly how everybody else feels. When I’m at the dentist getting my teeth cleaned people are standing looking through the door. And I’m like, What would you do if someone was staring at you while you were getting your teeth cleaned? So it’s a work in progress. When I meet young fans I understand them because I was like that too, but it’s the real life day-to-day run-ins with people who sometimes don’t really know how to act that make me feel weird, and I don’t like it.
