Drinking with Jennifer Lawrence: The best of her Vogue profile

Keeping her girl-next-door reputation solidly intact, Jennifer Lawrence's profile in the September issue of Vogue magazine sets the scene with this suggestion from the actress to the writer: "Should we just get drunk?"

We never learn if they actually accomplished that, but they did get a head start. While hanging out at a New York restaurant, writer Jonathan Van Meter enjoyed vodka as Lawrence, who turns 23 on August 15, had a beer.

A lot was shared over the course of what Van Meter calls a "seven-hour bender." Here's the best of it:

She has the "taste buds of a five-year-old": Don't try to feed Lawrence arugula, goat cheese or eggplant - she won't be into it.

Her TV obsession: "Homeland."

She's afraid of 13-year-olds: “I don’t have nightmares about clowns or burglars or murderers. I have nightmares about thirteen-year-olds. They terrify me.”

Her doubts about a lasting relationship with her "X-Men: Days of Future Past" co-star Nicholas Hoult, who's also her ex-boyfriend, have roots in sponges: “I wake up earlier in the morning when I have new sponges. That counter doesn’t even see it coming. ... (Hoult) would never wring them out. We were in the kitchen once, and I picked up the sponge, and it was soapy and wet, and I was like, ‘See? These are the kinds of things that make me think we are never going to work.'”

She's struggling with her immense fame: “I teeter on seeming ungrateful when I talk about this but I’m kind of going through a meltdown about it lately. ... If I were just your average 23-year-old girl and I called the police to say that there were strange men sleeping on my lawn and following me to Starbucks, they would leap into action. But because I am a famous person, well, sorry, ma’am, there’s nothing we can do. It makes no sense ... I am just not OK with it. It’s as simple as that. I am just a normal girl and a human being, and I haven’t been in this long enough to feel like this is my new normal."

But at the same time, she's always known she was destined for it: “I’ve never said this before, because there is no way to say it without it being completely misunderstood, but ever since I was really little, I always had a very normal idea of what I wanted: I was going to be a mom and I was going to be a doctor and I was going to live in Kentucky. But I always knew that I was going to be famous. I honest to God don’t know how else to describe it. I used to lie in bed and wonder, 'Am I going to be a local TV person? Am I going to a motivational speaker?' It wasn’t a vision. But as it’s kind of happening, you have this buried understanding: Of course.”

    I actually understood the comment about 13 year olds. A couple of years or so ago, my teenager dragged me to the midnight show opening of one of the Twilight sequels. Oh, my freaking G**!

    Teenage kids in general are just horrible. No one really likes them, probably including their parents.

      Agreed. If one kid is bullied in a school, all kids should be bullied in that school to know the feeling. Kids at that age are horrible, we were at our age... and we all look back on it and regret it. Nobody should have to deal with young teens, they should be locked in a zoo.

    Sorry but she seems well adjusted. Possibly too honest for Hollywood but not dumb. She has never embraced that whole side of being famous and that is fine. Just because we admire or enjoy these people does not give us full take over and view of their lives. She does have a point with the "guy on her lawn" statement; if he has a camera on him he is a photographer and nothing is done.

      Actually, that is false. If he were sleeping on the sidewalk there would be nothing they could do. We (as photographers) are allowed to take photos on public property. If the photographer had a crazy telephoto lens that would be okay. If he were to step a single foot onto her property, he no longer has legal rights and is trespassing. We cannot go onto private property unless we've been told we can. Law is law. Cops should have done something about it.

    She figured it wouldn't work because of a wet sponge? This proves that all women are nuts

    So far she seems to be the smartest person to fall into the hollywood grist mill in years; let's hope she can keep them from grinding her up too fine.

    13 yr olds terrify her? Hmmm, I don't think I want to know why.

      It's probably because they have a higher level of education than she does. Well at least that's my guess as to why lol.

      Have you met 13 year olds? Male or female, they are crazy between the new bursts of hormones and some obsession or other they make you want to lock them in a closet until they age out of it.
