Jennifer Lawrence might be on everyone’s best-friends-for-life wish list now, but the Oscar winner didn’t always have that reputation. In fact, the “Silver Linings Playbook” star revealed she was bullied in elementary school.
During a recent interview with The Sun, the 22-year-old actress opened up about her rough childhood and how she feels it helped make her a better person.
"I changed schools a lot when I was in elementary school because some girls were mean," Lawrence told The Sun. "They were less mean in middle school, because I was doing all right, although this one girl gave me invitations to hand out to her birthday party that I wasn't invited to."
But don’t feel bad for J-Law just yet; she made sure to get the mean girls back. "I just hocked a loogie on them and threw them in the trash can," she added. "Don't worry about the bitches. That could be a good motto, because you come across people like that throughout your life."
That kind of “hock a loogie on them” mentality has stayed with Lawrence and she can’t even fathom being considered a sex symbol. "As for being a sex symbol, I don't think of myself as sexy and, obviously, it's not true," she said. "I'm going to try to push that out of my mind because it makes me queasy."
She certainly isn’t trying to live up to her grown-up status. "The other day I had pizza for breakfast, buffalo wings for lunch and pizza for dinner," she told The Sun. "Probably my favorite food is a potato -- just a potato, because I like fries, boiled potatoes, mashed potatoes, baked potatoes."
Right after the Oscars, Lawrence quickly blackened her light locks to finish up shooting scenes for “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire,” which is set to premiere in theaters this fall.
