Jennifer Lawrence Gets Real About Choosing Love Or Career
I have dedicated myself to my career for as long as I can remember. Becoming successful has always been one of my driving forces.
I personally couldn't imagine my life as a kept woman. Giving up my job I worked so hard for just for "love?" It isn't for me.
But that's only because I am a hobgoblin, and I know no one will ever love me. Should someone want to take this dowry off my hands, I'll quit right now.
Jennifer Lawrence's career is enviable. She has an Oscar, she constantly charms audiences, and being the highest paid actress in the world isn't something to bat an eye at.
But the 26-year-old actor said she would consider giving it all up if she found the right love.
"Good Morning America's" Michael Strahan asked the "Passengers" star if she would ever leave for love. She responded,
I guess it depends on the love. Is that really mean? Does that sound super callous? It depends on the love? I mean if you were facing getting a really good job and the love that you're with is kinda like 'maybe it's momentary' then like choose the job. But if you're like -- this is love for the rest of my life then -- screw the job!
Love will make you say "take this job and shove it."
Lawrence is currently dating 47-year-old director Darren Aronofsky, who has a 10-year-old son with actress Rachel Weisz.
Alongside Chris Pratt, Lawrence plays a woman who leaves her life behind to live on a space ship in "Passengers." When asked if she could ever do that in real life, she said,
I mean, as things are right now, I can't see, like, just saying goodbye to everyone I know and love and just peacing out. I think the journey sounds amazing. If I could bring people, maybe I would.
She also said she would absolutely bring her dog Pippi Lawrence-Stocking.
