Jennifer Lawrence knows she can’t be the world’s best friend forever. Hollywood’s resident cool girl and pop culture’s girl crush du jour covers the June issue of Marie Claire and says she knows her time in the sun is limited.
“Nobody can stay beloved forever,” Lawrence, 23, told the publication in her cover interview. “I never believed it, the whole time. I was like, just wait: People are going to get sick of me. My picture is everywhere, my interviews are everywhere.”
“I’m way too annoying because I get on red carpets and I’m really hyper, most likely because I’ve been drinking, and I can’t not photobomb somebody if it’s a good opportunity,” the Hunger Games actress continued. “But it’s something I always tell myself: ‘You need to calm the f–k down. You don’t want to constantly be a GIF.'”
The Oscar winner looks serious and seriously beautiful on the cover, shot by Jan Welters. The tight shot of the actress shows her staring straight into the camera, her focused eyes lined with a smokey eye. Set against a white background, J. Law pops in a magenta and kelly green dress with cutouts at the collarbone from Christian Dior’s Fall 2014 collection.
Inside the photo spread, the celebrated actress wears another magenta piece—this time a tailored Dior coat with black buttons, which she sports as a dress. The look is topped off with a pair of white Michael Kors sneakers.
In the extended interview, Lawrence also discussed her largely quiet relationship with actor and X Men: Days of Future Past costar Nicholas Hoult.
“When we’re busy, we agree to mutually ignore each other,” she confessed. “Not completely, but neither of us gets mad when the other doesn’t text back or call. Life’s super-busy.”
“Obviously you know what they’re doing, and you trust them,” Lawrence continued about her and Hoult’s crazy lives. “We’re so young that it would almost be like if we lived in the same city, what would happen? We’d be living together. At least this way he’s in the same boat as I am: We can go out and have our own lives and know that we have each other.”
She went on to address rumored tension between herself and fellow YA franchise queen Kristen Stewart. Stewart, 24, appears in an upcoming movie, Equals, with Hoult, 24, sparking rumors that Lawrence was jealous of the starlet.
“There was something in a magazine, and I was like, ‘Oh, my God, that’s hilarious,’ because Kristen and I are friends,” Lawrence explained. “I actually texted her a picture of it and was like, ‘Just so you know, this is absolutely true.'”
