Jennifer Lawrence: Golden for Glamour April 2012

Jennifer Lawrence glitters in an Elie Tahari top with white Lucky jeans on the April 2012 cover of Glamour.

The 21-year-old actress chats to the glossy about The Hunger Games, getting and staying in shape, and another perk of the job. Checkit:

On taking on the role of Katniss in The Hunger Games: “I gave myself three days. I knew from reading the books that I loved The Hunger Games. I just didn’t know if it was worth changing my life for. I’m at a peaceful place right now. The people who used to ignore me at parties, now they’re nice to me and kissing my ass. But nobody’s staked outside my house. I wanted to make sure that when I said yes, I wouldn’t regret it. And I don’t regret it. I would have said no because I was scared, and then I would have been that bitter actress telling my grandkids, ‘I’m the one that turned it down.’”

On getting in shape and dieting: “I hate saying, ‘I like exercising.’ I want to punch people who say that in the face. But it’s nice being in shape for a movie, because they basically do it all for you. It’s like, ‘Here’s your trainer. This is what you can eat.’ I don’t diet. I do exercise! But I don’t diet. You can’t work when you’re hungry, you know?”

On adjusting to her life as a famous actress: “Just recently I started letting myself eat things from the minibar. When we were kids, we would never open the minibar. A $6 Snickers bar? But the other day I was in a hotel and I was staring at a Snickers bar, and I finally just ate it. Then it was like something in me snapped. I opened all these drinks. I thought: I can do it now. Now I’m all grown-up. I can eat things from the minibar.”
