Jennifer Lawrence has never been one to censor herself. She’s always been outlandish and outspoken, and her latest interview with Glamour magazine is no exception. Read on to learn 10 new things about the Internet’s favorite celebrity.

Acting is the only thing she’s felt 100 per cent confident about
“I don’t know how to describe it—reading a script is like a map,” she said. “Finding that character, feeling the emotions, getting that adrenaline—it is such a rush. Developing a character is the only thing in the world I feel 100 percent confident in.”

She moved to New York using money she had saved from babysitting
“I’ve always been a real stickler with money,” she said.”I wouldn’t buy things from the concession stand. I never knew what I was saving for until New York hit my mind. And then I was like, “That’s what I’ve been saving for…I’m going.”

Her mother didn’t want her to succeed at becoming an actor
“She wanted me to fail so that I could come home,” Lawrence said. “Because not failing meant me being in New York. She lost a daughter, really, at 14.”

She still feels attached to her home state Kentucky
“I want my ashes scattered on Lake Cumberland,” she said. “And when I said it out loud, I was like, ‘Wow. You really are still rooted in your redneck [ways].’But basically it’s a certain grit. Everything’s very family oriented.”

She’s really proud of how successful The Hunger Games was
Mostly because of how important Katniss was as a female hero. “I think there was this studio mentality for a long time that women and girls can relate to a male hero, but boys and men can’t relate to a female hero,” she said. “But that’s simply not true. And so we’ve fortunately proved that.”

She’s not ashamed of her leaked nude photos
She’s repeatedly called the incident a sex crime instead of a scandal. “If I was quiet, it would have seemed like I was ashamed. And I wasn’t ashamed; I was enraged,” she said. “Not once have I felt like I ‘learned a lesson.’ I didn’t do anything wrong!”

She’s always wanted to direct her own film
“I’ve wanted it for a long time. My first director was a female director, at 16, Lori Petty [in The Poker House],” she explained. “I got bit by the same bug that bit me with acting. I’ve tried to absorb every director I’ve worked with like a sponge. I’ve been making notes for seven years.”

She’s not “trying to be a GIF”
“I don’t feel like I’m misunderstood. I feel like I’m over-paid-attention-to. I’m not trying to be a GIF. I’m not trying to be a picked-up-on-Twitter quote,” she said. “All I’m trying to do is act. And I have to promote these movies. And I am, at the end of the day, I guess, a f–king lunatic. So if you record what I’m saying, it’s gonna be goofy.”
