When you think of Jennifer Lawrence you probably think of the Oscar award-winning actress who found fame playing Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games. Its also just as likely you may think of the woman who famously managed to fall up the stairs whilst receiving said Oscar. Either way this is why we love her, she is strong, she is successful, she is beautiful and she is capable of falling up the stairs, just like us really.
#1 “Why would I ever get cocky? I’m not saving anybody’s life. There are doctors who save lives and firemen who run into burning buildings. I’m making movies.”
She understands that despite being loved and idolised by millions she is just as normal as you and me. She has always remained level headed and focused and she deserves every ounce of her success.
#2 “I’m a big believer of accepting yourself and not really worrying about it.”
Despite constantly being surrounded by the pressure to be stick thin and Hollywood ready Jennifer has never once pretended to be anyone she is not.
#3 “Even as far back as when I started acting at 14, I know I’ve never considered failure”
She is a prime example of someone who won’t stop until she succeeds, an inspiration to all us career focused girls out there.
#4 “You do become more aware of your mortality as you get older. When you’re little, you jump on any wild horse. Then you get a little bit older and realise how fragile life is, and you’re more careful.”
She understands how precious life is and how important it is to embrace every last second of it.
#5 “As hard as it is and as tired as I am, I force myself to get dinner at least once a week with my girlfriends, or have a sleepover. Otherwise my life is just work.”
We can’t stress the importance of having a work life balance, nothing is more important that finding the time to share a few laughs with your best friends over a bottle of wine with a takeaway pizza.
#6 “At the end of the day there’s probably nothing that makes me feel better than junk food and reality TV”
She is a girl after our own heart! Don’t be too hard on yourself and allow yourself to indulge every once in a while.
