AceShowbiz - While Jennifer Lawrence seems like an easygoing person, she is not that nice to fans. Speaking with Adam Sandler during Variety Studio's Actors on Actors series, the Oscar-winning actress admits that she becomes "incredibly rude" in public, but she has a good reason for it.
"Once I enter a public place I become incredibly rude. I turn into a huge a**hole," she says about fan encounters. "That's kind of like my only way of defending myself." The 27-year-old even demonstrates the icy glare and finger wag she gives people when she sees someone approaching her table at a restaurant. "That’s like my only defense," she tells Sandler.
Lawrence says that comedians, such as her best pal Amy Schumer, have a harder time refraining from interactions because people "just assume they're your best friend." She shares, "I take my dog to the park all the time, to Central Park. As soon as I meet her in the park, we're f***ed."
Sandler agrees, sharing, "When I'm out eating, people do pull up a chair." He goes on revealing his own way to turn down fans' requests to take pictures at restaurants. "They go, 'Hey Adam, could I get a picture?' And I always say, 'You don't want that, man,' " he says.
"And they guy goes, 'What?' and I go, 'You don't want that. What are you going to do with it?' And then he's like, 'Yeah, yeah. I don't,' " Sandler continues.
During the chat, Lawrence who recently split from her director boyfriend Darren Aronofsky reveals how the bad reviews about their movie "mother!" affected their relationship. "We'd be on the tour together. I'd come back to the hotel, and the last thing I want to talk about or think about is a movie," she says. "He comes back from the tour, and that's all he wants to talk about and I get it. It's his baby. He wrote it. He conceived it. He directed it. I was doing double duty trying to be a supportive partner while also being like, 'Can I please, for the love of God, not think about mother! for one second?' "
She also says that reading some of the reviews were unhealthy. "I finally was just like, 'It's not healthy. Neither of us are doing it because if I read it, I start getting defensive.' Especially because it's my man," she explains. "I don't want to sound in an interview that I'm defending what we're doing in any way. It's awesome, what we did. Some people hate it and the people who hate it really hate it. But it's nothing that needs to be defended and if I read a negative review, I just feel defensive."
