Jennifer Lawrence: 10 men sleep outside my house
Jennifer Lawrence has 10 men “sleeping outside” her home.
The X-Men Apocalypse star finds it difficult to wake up with the same people standing outside her door desperate to get pictures of her but doesn’t “really like to complain” about it because people perceive it as her not being appreciative of her fame.
She said, “I am so booked up for the next few years that there is no time. I took advantage of some time off after Hunger Games and tried to go on vacation with some of my girlfriends but then we found out a disgusting paparazzo had been following us with a long lens the whole time, so that ruined it and we had to leave after two days.
“There are 10 men sleeping outside my house and I see them every morning and it’s not lovely. I’ve talked about it a lot with other actors who have the same problems but we don’t really like to complain about it because if we do people go, ‘Shut up, millionaires.’ and say, ‘You’re so lucky.’ And yes we are lucky but I deserve the right to have control over my image. I would prefer that the only time somebody sees me is when I am in a film, or in character or if I am promoting a movie.”
And the 25-year-old actor also opened up about her life before she became Hollywood’s highest paid actor, revealing she lived in a “rat-infested apartment” when she was 14-years-old.
She told the Daily Telegraph newspaper, “I didn’t want to have to struggle any longer than I did. I put in my time; I lived in a rat-infested apartment when I was 14 and I was told ‘No’ many times. I put my blood, sweat and tears into all of this.
“It’s easy to look from the outside and see my career grew very fast but there was a time before that career when I was working for it and I definitely wouldn’t have wanted that time to go on any longer.”
