8. She Has Never Taken An Acting Class
Jennifer Lawrence is proof that you don’t need to go to a fancy drama school to make it big in Hollywood. She has never taken an acting class and seems to be doing just fine. Maybe it’s pure talent, but she also says she just uses her imagination in order to play the roles convincingly.
9. She Didn’t Get Every Role
Jennifer Lawrence has gotten a lot of great roles but it’s not like she gets every single one that she wants. She auditioned for the role of Serena van der Woodsen in Gossip Girl and didn’t get it.

10. She’s A Pathological Liar
Jennifer says that as a kid she was a pathological liar, she would just constantly tell crazy stories and lie on the regular. In her interview with David Letterman, she said that it might be because she just wanted to one-up everyone. Like if someone was complaining about their leg hurt, she’d be like “Your leg hurts? Well, mine’s getting amputated next week”. All that lying sure paid off once she became an actress, now it’s called acting.
11. She Once Stained Her Bath Blue
Jennifer famously played Mystique in X-men. The first time around she had to go through a slow process of being painted blue every day and have scales glued to her in strategic places. It took ages, and it was a pain to wash off every day. In fact, she even stained the bath in her UK Airbnb blue with all that paint trying to wash it off. She never got that deposit back. So in the next movie, they made her a blue bodysuit so she would only get her face and arms painted, which was way quicker.
