My battle with insecurity has left me feeling like garbage: Lawrence

PARIS: The face of Dior and the highest paid actress in Hollywood also said her  battle with insecurity had left her  feeling like “garbage”. In an interview with Vanity Fair, the 26-year-old Oscar winner said of Paris: “You get ready in your hotel and you’re like, ‘I look awesome’. Then you walk outside, see the outfits and people who are like seven feet tall, and are like, ‘I am a piece of garbage. I’m not going out any more’.” Lawrence said she had become an intensely private person after suffering invasions of privacy in the past. The first was when naked photographs of her were stolen and posted online, and the second when emails sent from her account were released after Sony Pictures was hacked in 2014. She revealed: “You might think you know me, but when you approach me you’re a total stranger to me and  I’m scared.

“I get very protective of my space. It took me a long time to be able to do that. But if I’m eating dinner and somebody comes up and a flash goes off from someone’s iPhone camera, I am really rude to that person. “Then other people at the restaurant will see and be like, ‘Oh, damn, I don’t want to do that.’ Privacy is a full-time job and I work very hard at it.” Lawrence, who has starred in four Hunger Games films, admitted there was one role she would not be reprising. After being a bridesmaid for friends four times, she said: “I will never be a bridesmaid again. There needs to be a bridesmaids’ union. It’s horrendous. “If anyone asks me again, I’m going to say, ‘No. That part of my life is over. I appreciate the ask.’ If I do ever get married, I don’t think I will have bridesmaids. How can I rank my friends?” She also claimed that if she was to become a mother, her children would take second  place to her pet dog Pippi Longstocking.

The Chihuahua mix travels the world with the actress, accompanying her on film sets and often during interviews, and a painting of her takes pride of place at her Los Angeles home. She said: “F*** it. I am the person who has an acrylic painting of her dog. I am a psychotic dog mom in a way that I am genuinely embarrassed about.” Having children “would be dangerous” because “my kids would be incredibly jealous because I would still be way more attentive to Pippi than I would to them,” she added.
