Jennifer Lawrence Recycled Cover Shot for IO Donna.

Jennifer Lawrence’s cover on the March issue of Italy’s IO Magazine is from a photo shoot she did for the Canadian Flare magazine in June 2011.  What do you think about magazine reusing cover photos?

The 21-year-old actress  posed for Max Abadian and opened up to IO Magazine about topics such as being discovered at age 14 and where she sees herself a few years from now:

On whether she feels ready for this big change:
“Yes, I’m ready, but also terrified. But then how do you feel ready for something you do not know? I … I’m afraid.”

On being discovered:
“By pure chance. I was 14, I was in New York with my mother, standing on the sidewalk watching a rap-dancer, when a guy with a camera comes up and asks permission to take a picture. ‘Why not?’ my mother says, amused … In New York anything can happen. After a week I got a call at home and was asked to make a commercial. In short, I became a model, but without much enthusiasm. My agent, however, was always there, hammering: ‘Would you rather be a successful model or actress who is starving?’ For goodness sake, I have not had a moment’s hesitation.”

On the runaway success of the ‘Hunger Games’ trilogy:
“We live in a world obsessed with reality shows, we use the personal tragedies to entertain the audience and we want to shock people to succeed.”

On where she sees herself in a few years:
“With a family and many children. Acting is my job, but it is only a small part of my life, certainly not the most important. What really counts for me is to build lasting bonds.”

Jennifer Lawrence looking great on this month’s Glamour Magazine

The Hunger Games are here, and now Jennifer Lawrence, who plays Katniss Everdeen, is on the cusp of being mega-famous. So how does she feel about her imminent superstardom? Really, really nervous (which makes her even more awesome). Read an excerpt from her interview in Glamour’s April 2012 issue, and see her cover-shoot gallery below.

Her first thoughts about The Hunger Games being turned into a movie…

“When I heard they were making the movie, I was like, ‘oh, that’s nice—they’re going to ruin another great book.’ But then I met Gary [Ross, the director], and he was unbelievable and brilliant and genius.”

On taking on the role of Katniss in The Hunger Games…

“I gave myself three days. I knew from reading the books that I loved The Hunger Games. I just didn’t know if it was worth changing my life for. I’m at a peaceful place right now. The people who used to ignore me at parties, now they’re nice to me and kissing my ass. But nobody’s staked outside my house. I wanted to make sure that when I said yes, I wouldn’t regret it. And I don’t regret it. I would have said no because I was scared, and then I would have been that bitter actress telling my grandkids, ‘I’m the one that turned it down.’”

On getting in shape and dieting…

• “I hate saying, ‘I like exercising.’ I want to punch people who say that in the face. But it’s nice being in shape for a movie, because they basically do it all for you. It’s like, ‘Here’s your trainer. This is what you can eat.’”

• “I don’t diet. I do exercise! But I don’t diet. You can’t work when you’re hungry, you know?”

On adjusting to her life as a famous actress…

“Just recently I started letting myself eat things from the minibar. When we were kids, we would never open the minibar. A $6 Snickers bar? But the other day I was in a hotel and I was staring at a Snickers bar, and I finally just ate it. Then it was like something in me snapped. I opened all these drinks. I thought: I can do it now. Now I’m all grown-up. I can eat things from the minibar.”

Jennifer Lawrence Goes Red!

The Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence is now a redhead! “Her new color is actually a happy accident,” hairstylist Mark Townsend told InStyle.com exclusively. “It’s been colored and re-colored so many times I told her to give it a break and use stripping shampoos.” Lawrence—who went from blond to brunet to, now, red—last had her hair colored by Joico colorist Cherry Petenbrink for her upcoming role as Katniss Everdeen. “Jennifer had such gorgeous natural blond hair when she arrived at my studio, I had to fill it to build color. Our end result was a deep, level five brunet,” Petenbrink told us. “Jennifer was nervous, but she loved it. She told us ‘I can live with this for three movies.’” The colorist also adds that a product like Joico K-Pak Color Therapy Shampoo and Restorative Oil (available at salons) can help preserve rich color the longest.

René Fris reveals insider tips on how to pull off these sought after looks effortlessly! Rene’s online stylist consultation service is a unique way to get celebrity hair stylist tips (just like these) from virtually anywhere – check it out at www.renefris.com.


REESE WITHERSPOON
Presenter Reese Witherspoon’s retro ponytail evoked Sixties mod fashion on the red carpet. To begin, apply a texturizing and lifting spray to hair and blow dry using a large round brush. Make sure to really lift hair at roots, creating epic volume which is essential to the look. Next, use a 1 and a half-inch curling iron to create loose waves and movement. Gather the hair up into a ponytail high up at the back of the head. As you do this, push hair forward to create lift at the crown. Use bobby pins to keep the ponytail in place. Set the whole look off with a coat of maximum hold hairspray.

MILA KUNIS
Black Swan star Mila Kunis looked positively gorgeous in this prom-esque do. Begin by parting the hair deeply to the side. Use a ¾-inch curling iron to create a wavy, tousled texture throughout hair. Allow a top section to drape loosely across half the forehead, gather the rest of hair together at the nape of the neck. Twist hair up and into a loose bun underneath its base, securing with bobby pins. Apply a shine boosting hairspray to finish the look.

GWYNETH PALTROW
Best Song performer Gwyneth Paltrow’s sleek hair complemented her shimmery form-fitting gown perfectly. The star’s modern style looked sensational on the Red Carpet, but is also versatile enough to rock virtually anywhere. For this look, apply a shine serum throughout wet locks and blow dry straight with a concentrated nozzle attachment on the blow dryer. Part hair down the middle and style hair in sections with a 1-inch flattening iron. Finish the look with a shine boosting hairspray for a polished look.

JENNIFER LAWRENCE
20-year-old best actress nominee, Jennifer Lawrence, looked hip and sexy with long layered waves. This look is simple but the results are head-turning. Begin by running a thickening lotion through damp hair. Blow dry using a paddle brush. Use a 2-inch curling iron to create sultry loose waves. Feel free to use hands to create more body and movement. Finish the look off with a medium-hold hair spray.
