Jennifer Lawrence has been named in Variety’s 2012 Impact report as one of the ‘creatives’ making a difference. In the report, Lawrence gives a few memorable quotes about her life in Hollywood, how fickle Hollywood can be, and her charity passion.
She gives advice to other actors out there, saying, “Try it (acting) for a few years and if it doesn’t work out try something else. It’s one of those things that always sounds so nice, just keep going and one of these days your dreams will come true, but it’s a fickle industry and its completely random and unpredictable, it’s not like being a lawyer where you take a test and then you get to become one.”
She also talks about the balance between her work and life, saying, “I always have friends coming in and out of town. And when you have time off, just completely let go of everything. I hang out with the people I always do, outside of my work life nothing changes. If you have a good group then if the people around you don’t change, hopefully you won’t change.”
She adds that she’s a strong proponent of charity, saying, “I’ve got a charity at home that I love called Bellewood. It’s a home for (foster care) children in Kentucky, and my family opens up our farms for the kids in the summer. It’s a school, but they also teach them how to garden and different skills — it’s a fun place.”
Lawrence also recently spoke about her boyfriend Nicholas Hoult in next month's Vogue UK cover interview.
