Jennifer Lawrence revealed that she has a select number of friends and doesn’t care for people who are out to use her or her ride on her fame. In fact, the actress doesn’t have any problem cutting such individuals from her life.
The “Hunger Games” actress, who is on the cover of Entertainment Weekly (EW) magazine’s Dec. 4 issue, revealed that she’s very particular about the friends that she allows inside her circle. She explained to EW that she has a “very small circle” of friends. “The moment I feel like someone is using me or is in it for the wrong reasons,” she added. “I have zero guilt about just cutting them the f— out of my life.”
Lawrence, who was named EW’s “Entertainer of the Year,” further explained that she values her friends and that she can usually detect if one is not being real or is taking advantage of her. She told EW that her “bulls--- detector is phenomenal,” before adding that “none of [her] friends bulls---- [her].”
“Everything in my life has to be real,” she stated.
The actress, who has been part of the “Hunger Games” franchise since it’s very first movie, even commented during her EW interview on how she and other cast members have become close over the years, Us Weekly reported. Lawrence even shared that she, along with co-stars Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth and Woody Harrelson, had the “greatest house parties” while filming the "Hunger Games" movie series.
“Woody chased me with a sweaty sock, and we flipped over a couch,” she recounted. “And one time Josh and Liam started playing tug-of-war with their mouths with one of my shirts. And it just went on for 10 minutes, and it was so intense.”
Apart from completing the “Hunger Games” franchise, Lawrence has also been busy with other movie projects such as writing a screenplay with comedienne Amy Schumer. Schumer, who has also become one of Lawrence’s friends, only had praises for the “X-Men” actress and described how Lawrence “doesn’t play by the rules” when writing a scene.
The “Trainwreck” actress explained how Lawrence has a “really cool way” of looking at a scene and then transforming it into something else. Schumer even described the “Hunger Games” star as “great writer.”
