Jennifer Lawrence Says Her Biggest Fear Is Her Private Parts Turning Into a ‘Wet Sponge’

That’s gross! Most people fear spiders or snakes, but not Jennifer Lawrence.

The quirky actress sat down with Vanity Fair to answer a quick 128-second quiz about herself, and made some startling and bizarre revelations.

Lawrence, who also graces the cover of the Holiday 2016 issue, was asked a string of questions from her favorite vacation destination to her best dinner partner.

But it was her answer to what her biggest irrational fear is that stole the show.

"My biggest irrational, hopefully, fear is that the Zika virus is going to be the solution to overpopulation," she said with a deadpan look on her face. "I don't know, if you've ever read the Kurt Vonnegut short story where everyone has to take these pills that make your private parts feel like wet sponges and, then nobody can have sex and no one can procreate. And so by the time I'm older, and I'm like, 'I think I want to be a mother,' they're like, 'You can't. Your private part feels like a sponge.'"

The 26-year-old, who is dating Darren Aronofsky, also got real about what she’d be doing if she wasn’t acting.

“Lying in a ditch,” she said, before adding: “Or stripping.”
