“Not to sound rude, but [acting] is stupid.”
Which Tinseltown actress was recently heard name-calling her craft?
Was it Scarlett Johannson, Jennifer Lawrence or Anne Hathaway?
Find out in Celebuzz’s top quotes of the week.
Who was the big screen beauty that spoke ill of acting?
It was Jennifer Lawrence!
In a recent interview with Vanity Fair, the Hollywood newcomer remained modest about her impact as a top actress, explaining that she is no hero, and that acting doesn’t make her one.
“Everybody’s like, ‘How can you remain with a level head?,’ And I’m like, ‘Why would I ever get cocky? I’m not saving anybody’s life.’” she continued. “There are doctors who save lives and firemen who run into burning buildings. I’m making movies. It’s stupid.’”
But some might disagree with Lawrence’s summation that her acting career is “stupid”.
Though she had already achieved Academy Award nominee status for her role in indie film Winter’s Bone back in 2010, the 22-year-old actress only rose to superstardom very recently. As leading lady Katniss Everdeen in the critically acclaimed film adaptation of the novel, The Hunger Games, she obtained international praise and overnight recognition.
Now, she is among the most buzzed about for this year’s Oscars for her role opposite Bradley Cooper in Silver Linings Playbook.
All things considered, the young star still isn’t crazy about all the fame.
“I call my mom sobbing all the time … dealing with the repercussions of having no more anonymity. You lose privacy,” she also told the magazine. “As much as this is a curse, as stupid as it sounds, to make as much money as I am by doing something that I love, it’s hard not to regret it when you’re being chased by 15 strangers.”
Stupid or not, we here at Celebuzz hope she doesn’t quit her day job.
