The outspoken actress takes time out to discuss how she stays so grounded.
"I actually said no at first,” whispers Jennifer Lawrence. Ensconced in a two-storey penthouse at an exclusive Santa Monica hotel in a dimly lit paparazzi-proof room, the actress is reflecting on her initial reluctance to front a campaign for the Raf Simons-led house of Dior.
“I thought, ‘I’m not a model. I’m not a spokesperson. I’m just an actor!’” says the 23 year old, who nabbed 2013’s best actress Oscar, Golden Globe and SAG awards for Silver Linings Playbook. “But then [producer] Harvey Weinstein told me I was being an idiot. He said, ‘Just go to Paris and go to the fashion show.’ Once I was at the show, I felt like I had been baptised in fashion. I was just in love with his [Simons’s] clothes, so it would have been ridiculous to say no.”
