Jennifer Lawrence has revealed that she is struggling with her meteoric rise to fame.
The 'X-Men' and 'Hunger Games' star, who won the Oscar for Best Actress last year, is now the most in-demand actress in Hollywood.
But she's not taking well to what comes with it.
Speaking to Vogue magazine – the actress is the cover star of its September issue, the magazine's biggest of the year – she explained how difficult she is finding it to adjust.
At one point during the interview, a woman at a table near to her and her interviewer begins taking pictures.
After asking the woman not to, she says: “I’m just really starting to feel like a monkey in a zoo.
“I teeter on seeming ungrateful when I talk about this, but I’m kind of going through a meltdown about it lately.
“All of a sudden the entire world feels entitled to know everything about me, including what I’m doing on my weekends when I’m spending time with my nephew. And I don’t have the right to say, ‘I’m with my family.’ ”
She adds that because she is now an A-list Hollywood celebrity, police are less sympathetic about intrusion into her life than they would be were she a non-celebrity.
“If I were just your average 23-year-old girl, and I called the police to say that there were strange men sleeping on my lawn and following me to Starbucks, they would leap into action.
“But because I am a famous person, well, sorry, ma’am, there’s nothing we can do. It makes no sense.
“I am just not OK with it, It’s as simple as that. I am just a normal girl and a human being, and I haven’t been in this long enough to feel like this is my new normal. I’m not going to find peace with it.”
Lawrence will next be seen in the 'Hunger Games' sequel 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire', out on November 21. The hotly anticipated follow-up will hardly help her keep a low profile.
