Jennifer Lawrence, the Oscar-winning actress who starred in the $2.9 billion Hunger Games franchise, has opened up about how her sudden fame affected her mental health.
In a 2016 interview with Glamour magazine, Lawrence said that she felt “angry and distorted” after the first Hunger Games movie was released. She said that she felt like she had lost control of her life and that she was constantly being scrutinized by the media.
“I didn’t really realize how angry and distorted I felt for, like, probably a solid three years,” Lawrence said. “But [now] I love my life.”
Lawrence said that she learned to cope with her fame by “finding ways to control my own narrative” and by “surrounding myself with people who love and support me.” She also said that she “learned to appreciate the good things” about fame, such as the opportunity to “meet amazing people and travel the world.”
Lawrence’s comments about her experience with fame are a reminder of the complex challenges that celebrities face. While fame can bring many rewards, it can also be a source of stress and anxiety. It is important for celebrities to find ways to protect their mental health and to surround themselves with positive people who can help them through difficult times.
