Jennifer Lawrence on acting, dating and speaking her mind

Jennifer Lawrence landed on the short list of Hollywood’s most lucrative leading ladies after earning an Oscar nomination for her performance in 2010’s “Winter’s Bone.”

She's since defeated evil in “X-Men: First Class”; emerged victorious in “The Hunger Games”; and been terrorized in “The House at the End of the Street."

“Acting, films, scripts, is literally the only thing I'm 100% confident in,” the actress said in Elle magazine’s December issue. “I know what I'm doing. I just understand it, and I love it. When I'm on set, that's when I feel the most at home and in control."

Lawrence, who will next appear alongside Bradley Cooper in “Silver Linings Playbook,” to hit theaters on November 21, also dished on her love life. She's currently dating her best friend, and fellow “X-Men: First Class” mutant, Nicholas Hoult.

“He's my favorite person to be around and makes me laugh harder than anybody,” Larence said. “We can eat Cheetos and watch beach volleyball and we turn into two perverted Homer Simpsons, like, 'Oh, she's got a nice ass.' I never thought we'd have such different opinions on asses.”

Before the Games: Jennifer Lawrence

Speaking of her sometimes-likeness to Home Simpson, Lawrence said, “I never know what's going to come out of my mouth, and it's horrible.”

“When I get older,” the 22 year old said, “I'll be more mature and poised. And I'll have control over my mouth. One day, I'm going to grow up.”

    I really like Jennifer. She seems so grounded. She appears to be a good role model for young girls.

    I liked how she managed to look consistently scared in Hunger Games! She spoke with her eyes and made every dialog count in a powerful way. I loved the build-up and that the two team members did not really like each other. Then there was the whole 'we will probably die' thing going on. The whole setup of them sitting in that luxurious hotel with tasty things to eat, contemplating in serious silence, feeling the dread of what is to come. But those dark moments actually bring them closer to each other.

    Stanley Tucci was just great! that guy is amazing! He was fantastic in Prada and he really got into it with the blue hair! The way he was manipulating the emotions of the players, but also got emotional himself. We should have hated him, but he kind of convinced me that in that screwed up world, he was just one of the players. I love the whole distopian 1984ish feel of this film, the men in white uniform and helmets, the fear, and that town was dismal as if happiness had gone to Wegmans and never came back with the groceries. And yet we also feel hope in the defiance of the swift and clever Katniss Everdeen.

    She is just beautiful! I think she is the hottest young actress in Hollywood. She smiles and she is truly grateful for her success. I hope she has a long, long career.
