Jennifer Lawrence says is a GIF waiting to happen. And for good reason: her candid, off-the-cuff quips are meant to be shared and enjoyed endlessly. So we rounded up 10 of our favourite Jennifer Lawrence-isms from this past year.
On funny stories: "This is actually really funny. Somebody as a joke bought me a bunch of butt plugs. It’s a long story," Lawrence said on Conan O’Brien. "I had a copious amount of butt plugs. Tons of butt plugs. All different kinds of colours and the maid was coming so I was like, ‘well I’ll just shove this under the bed so she doesn’t see all these butt plugs.’ She might not know they are for a joke. Then I came back and all of them were brought out of the bed and were in this beautiful display on my bedside table. I think she knew what she was doing. They were under the bed. I wanted to leave a note like, ‘not mine’ or ‘bought as joke.’"
On how to measure success: “Happiness. I think you can still pity people who have money and cars and houses – you can still see that they’re not happy and not satisfied. We think that those things will make us happy, but that’s the end goal,” Lawrence told our features editor Kathryn Hudson in
our December 2013 cover story.

On saving lives: “Not to sound rude, but [acting] is stupid,” she said in an interview for her
Vanity Fair February 2013 cover story. “Everybody’s like, ‘How can you remain with a level head?’ And I’m like, ‘Why would I ever get cocky? I’m not saving anybody’s life. There are doctors who save lives and firemen who run into burning buildings. I’m making movies. It’s stupid.”
On keeping your eye on the fries: “I can see the McDonalds right there. Wait, hold on, I didn’t say fries! I’m seeing you talk and all I’m seeing is me being pissed I didn’t get fries,” she said during an interview on the
2013 Oscars red carpet.
Jennifer Lawrence’s STYLE EVOLUTION
Advice to young women: "You look like you look, and be comfortable. What are you going to do, be hungry every single day to make other people happy? That’s just dumb,” she told Yahoo! CEO Marissa Mayer.
On being starstruck: “I literally put my hand right in Bill Maher’s face and said, ‘Not now, Bill!,’ and I just stared at Meryl Streep,” she said in the
Vanity Fair cover story. “I just creepily stared at her.”
On what upsets her most: “When
girls are just mean to each other,” she told
Access Hollywood. “I think that we are just so unsupportive. When I watch these shows and the media and I watch the women on these television shows pointing to these women and judging them and calling them ugly and calling them fat… It’s just like, where have we come? Why are we here? Why are we doing this to each other? Men were doing it hundreds of years ago and now we’ve turned around we we’re doing it to each other.”
On standing tall: "You guys are just standing up because you feel bad that I fell, and it’s really embarrassing. But thank you,” she said during her Best Actress acceptance speech after tumbling at the 2013 Oscars.
On self-containment: “Once I’m obsessed with somebody, I’m terrified of them instantly. I’m not scared of them—I’m scared of me and how I will react,” said in the
Vanity Fair cover story.
On who she admires most: "Meryl Streep is obviously one of the most incredible actresses in the world, but I also admire her on a personal level. I hope that I can aspire to have what she has: a private life that no one knows about," she said in our December cover story.
