The ubiquitous Jennifer Lawrence is on everyone’s BFF wish-list nowadays, but turns out that wasn’t always the case. The 22-year-old actress revealed to The Sun that she was bullied throughout her childhood, something that built her character and made her who she is today.
“I changed schools a lot when I was in elementary school because some girls were mean,” Lawrence told The Sun. “They were less mean in middle school, because I was doing all right, although this one girl gave me invitations to hand out to her birthday party that I wasn’t invited to.”
But a Jennifer Lawrence story wouldn’t be complete without a Jennifer Lawrence twist: “I just hocked a loogie on them and threw them in the trash can,” she added. “Don’t worry about the bitches. That could be a good motto, because you come across people like that throughout your life.”
Lawrence also opened up about her new, slightly more grown-up status. “As for being a sex symbol, I don’t think of myself as sexy and, obviously, it’s not true,” she said. “I’m going to try to push that out of my mind because it makes me queasy.”
And if she is perceived as such, you can’t chalk it up to trying. “The other day I had pizza for breakfast, buffalo wings for lunch and pizza for dinner,” she told The Sun. “Probably my favourite food is a potato — just a potato, because I like fries, boiled potatoes, mashed potatoes, baked potatoes.”
Jennifer Lawrence reportedly ignored advances from Leonardo DiCaprio recently as she “only had eyes” for Bradley Cooper.
Jennifer and Bradley appeared alongside each other in Silver Linings Playbook and their portrayal of a couple who are falling in love has caused speculation romance also blossomed off screen.
Although they have both denied they are dating, their behaviour at the Oscars last month – where Jennifer was named best actress – set tongues wagging again.
“They keep saying they’re like brother and sister, but anyone who meets them can see that their chemistry is off the charts. Leo DiCaprio was clearly hitting on her, but she only had eyes for Bradley,” an insider told Heat magazine.
The pair also attended a pre-Oscars party together, where they appeared just as friendly. They spent so much time with each other at the event other guests presumed they were an item.
“They were deep in conversation and talking about how they wanted to take a break after the awards season. Everyone at the party was talking about their chemistry; they really looked like they were together, but trying their best to hide it,” the source added.
Bradley, 38, has previously insisted that he is too old to date 22-year-old Jennifer. She has also insisted they don’t see each other romantically, claiming their chemistry is so good on screen as they have none in everyday life.
Their behaviour has led many to believe they aren’t being truthful though.
“When they’re at a party together, Brad constantly swoops around the room to check on Jen – it’s like he can’t stay away,” the source mused.
The MTV Movie Awards will take place on Sunday, April 14, 2013. Broadcasting live from Los Angeles, the cinematic showcase will highlight all of your favorite films from the year with an extra oomph of playhouse pizzazz to honor the industry.

Jennifer Lawrence’s Hollywood career is on such a hot streak, even her sweaty workout clothes are fetching top dollar.
The Oscar winner’s on-screen exercise gear from Silver Linings Playbook was sold by the Nate D. Sanders memorabilia auction house on Thursday, with Lawrence’s used sports bra and other garments making serious bank.
According to Sanders, the auctioned items brought in more than the $500 to $1,500 apiece that had been expected.
The sports bra and blue long-sleeved shirt worn during Lawrence’s character’s dance rehearsals were sold together for $3,175.
Meanwhile, the vanilla pants Lawrence used during the big dance competition went for $3,493.
Priciest of all was the wool winter coat Lawrence wore in the movie, which netted $4,652.

If you haven’t seen this video yet, it’s definitely worth the watch. In it, Jennifer Lawrence is interrupted by Jack Nicholson while talking to Good Morning America co-host George Stephanopoulos about how she felt when her name was read as the best actress winner. Nicholson semi-hijacking the interview is great, but Lawrence’s reaction to him stopping by is golden. Check it out below:
