Are we over Jennifer Lawrence yet? Over her red carpet quirkiness that always walks the line between awfully adorable and awfully awkward? Over her unfiltered and unabashed approach in interviews? Hmmm, nope. Not yet.
But even the silly star knows that America will one day grow out of our obsession with her shtick, just like that pixie cut of hers. She covers the June issue of Marie Claire with a serious glare, and inside, JLaw gets real about her role as Hollywood’s outspoken sweetheart:
“Nobody can stay beloved forever,” she reasons. “I never believed it, the whole time. I was like, just wait: People are going to get sick of me. My picture is everywhere, my interviews are everywhere; I’m way too annoying because I get on red carpets and I’m really hyper, and I can’t not photo-bomb somebody if it’s a good opportunity. But it’s something I always tell myself: ‘You need to calm the fuck down. You don’t want to constantly be a GIF.'”
Well, if we have anything to be annoyed about, it’s how stunning the Oscar-winning actress looks on her cover shot while wearing a Fall 2014 collection dress from Dior (of course) and minimal makeup. And the rest of her spread is equally as mesmerizing,

On whether or not she really tripped at the Oscars–twice:
“I’m trying to do the right thing, waving to the fans, trying to be nice, and there’s a traffic cone. The second I hit it, I was laughing, but on the inside I was like, ‘You’re fucked. They’re totally going to think this is an act.’ If I were Jared Leto, I would completely agree. But trust me, if I was going to plan it, I would have done it at the Golden Globes or the SAGs. I would have never done it at two Oscars in a row. I watch Homeland—I’m craftier than that!”
On her outspoken openness:
“I’m not like, ‘I’m a rebel; I’m out of control.’ I just don’t think about things before I say them or do them.”
