Jennifer Lawrence prefers not to focus on public scrutiny

LOS ANGELES: Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence says she tries not to focus on what people think about her because that can be stressful.


Lawrence, 25, said she finds peace in the thought that there is a difference between her public image and her real self.

“I find a certain peace by thinking of me in public as sort of an avatar self. You out there can have the avatar me. I can keep me.”

And I just try to acknowledge that this scrutiny is stressful, and that anyone would find it stressful.

So I’ve got to try to let it go, and try to be myself, and focus on important things, like picking up dog poop,” she said.
