Jennifer Lawrence covers the December issue of Vogue and her profile, billed "Jennifer Lawrence Is Determined, Hilarious, and — Above All — Real," lives up to its title. The Hunger Games star ditches plans at a fancy restaurant because she wants to stay at home and order a pizza, conducts another portion of the interview after a dentist appointment while she's still feeling the effects of novocaine, and takes her bra off in front of the interviewer.
Lawrence also talks about trying to date someone as the most highly-paid actress in the world. "No one ever asks me out," she tells Vogue. "I am lonely every Saturday night. Guys are so mean to me. I know where it's coming from, I know they're trying to establish dominance, but it hurts my feelings. I'm just a girl who wants you to be nice to me. I am straight as an arrow. I feel like I need to meet a guy, with all due respect, who has been living in Baghdad for five years who has no idea who I am." She also says of her bedroom, "Literally zero magic has happened in here" before toasting to "My hymen growing back!"
Professionally, things are looking much better for Lawrence who signed on to do a movie with Chris Pratt that, in her words is, "A space movie with Chris Pratt." Darren Aronofsky also pitched his next project to the star by inviting her over for wine and reading her the entire script.
