Jennifer Lawrence: I'm more scared of ghosts than burglars


Never one to hold back what's on her mind, 22-year-old leading lady Jennifer Lawrence delivered some of her off-the-cuff commentary on a variety of topics -- from feeling like a dog, to the value of a buck, to admitting her biggest fears -- in an interview with U.K. magazine Fabulous.

Maybe her unrehearsed off-screen nature comes from the fact that she just doesn’t know quite what to say without a script.

“I have no control over what comes out of my mouth,” she told the magazine. “I would probably turn into a mute if I read what I said!”

So she doesn't read or watch or hold back.

“I’m afraid I’m going to go my whole life being scared like a chihuahua,” she said. “Making movies is where I belong. I shouldn’t be heard just talking. So, when I’m doing movies, I’m really happy. That’s where I’m comfortable, that’s my home. When you put me on a red carpet or on a stage, I turn into chihuahua Jennifer.”

But no matter how much success she has, she doesn't plan to turn into big-spender Jennifer. The "Silver Linings Playbook" star said she was raised to "have respect for money, even though you have a lot of it."

"That’s why mini-bars are difficult, because it’s like yes, I can afford a $6 Snickers bar, but there’s just something wrong with that!" she insisted. "I still drive my same car I’ve been driving for a long time and I haven’t bought a house yet."

As for the house she lives in now, Lawrence shared this shocker: she's not too concerned about uninvited guests -- as long as they're alive.

"I actually get comforted when I feel like there might be a burglar in my house, like, 'There’s a real person that might be breaking into my house, it’s not a ghost, that’s a relief,'" she said.
