Jennifer Lawrence has largely stayed out of the spotlight since the Oscars, but her latest interview is evidence that her Jennifer Lawrence-ness remains strong. In her cover story for Harper's Bazaar's May beauty issue, she discusses how she's kind of a puker ("I don't have the tolerance to black out; I just start puking."), she still isn't getting any ("Sex? Someone explain to me what it is.") and also, that the dress she wore to this year's Golden Globes was actually her plan B.

"Plan A was a dress that I couldn't wear because awards season is synced with my menstrual cycle, and it has been for years," she tells the magazine. She ended up wearing the red dress because "it was loose at the front. And I didn't have to worry about sucking anything in. The other dress was really tight, and I'm not going to suck in my uterus. I don't have to do that."

For the record, here is that dress:

Let this be a call to end the tyranny of the uterus-sucking red carpet gown — or any item of clothing, really.
