Jennifer Lawrence Explains Why She Is ‘Incredibly Rude’ To Fans

J.Law seems like she’d be really really fun to hang out with. Remember when she hung out with Adele and Emma Stone? Or, more recently, when she got naked in Kim Kardashian’s closet because she got wasted at Kris Jenner’s house?

Lawrence has cultivated a coveted Hollywood persona— she is incredibly talented and sought-after as an actress, but ultimately relatable and super cool as both a millennial and a woman. But if you’re thinking you’d totally click with her if you saw her out in public and tried to be her friend, think again. Jennifer Lawrence is— self-admittedly— rude to fans. And she’s got good reason to be.

The actress sat down with comedian Adam Sandler for a 30-minute interview for Variety‘s “Actors on Actors” video series. The two got real about how they deal with negative movie reviews and life as a famous person in general. They then began discussing what it’s like to be adored by so many, which led into a conversation about some less-than-stellar fan interactions.

Sandler revealed how he “gets some love on the streets” pretty consistently, and that fans will surprisingly often pull up a chair while he’s out in public or harass him for a selfie. Lawrence says fans who cross that boundary seem to be a more frequent occurrence for comedians, since they seem like your best friend when onscreen.

“They go, ‘Hey Adam, could I get a picture?’ And I always say, ‘You don’t want that, man,'” explains Sandler of fan interactions.

“And they guy goes, ‘What?’ and I go, ‘You don’t want that. What are you going to do with it?'” Sandler continued. “And then he’s like, ‘Yeah, yeah. I don’t.'”

Sandler then refers to Lawrence as “famously light and approachable,” to which she admits she is not as laid back as she seems. In fact, she’s purposefully rude to fans, using this shell as a defense mechanism in order to stay sane.

“Once I enter a public place I become incredibly rude, I turn into a huge asshole. That’s kind of like my only way of defending myself.”

She goes on to demonstrate her method for dissuading fans who are obviously approaching her to get a picture: an ice-cold glare and a vicious finger-wagging indicating ‘no.’  Unsurprisingly, it’s a lot worse when she’s out with pal Amy Schumer. “I take my dog to the park all the time, Central Park,” she said. “As soon as I meet her in the park, we’re f***ed.”

This isn’t the first time Lawrence has discussed what it feels like to constantly be accosted in public.

“I think that people [strangers] think that we already are friends because I am famous and they feel like they already know me, but I don’t know them,” she told The Daily Telegraph. “I have to protect my bubble, like, ‘I have a weird job — don’t let this be a reality.'”

So there you have it. If you ever find yourself lucky enough to catch a glimpse of Jennifer Lawrence in the wild, mind your own gd business and leave her alone.
