The 'Silver Linings Playbook' star is on fire in 2013.
Is Jennifer Lawrence letting her newfound fame go to head?
The actress says growing up in Kentucky she always knew she would be a star.
The Best Actress Oscar-winner for "Silver Linings Playbook" tells the September issue of Vogue magazine that she used to "lie in bed and wonder" about what would make her well-known.
She says, "It wasn't a vision. But as it's kind of happening, you have this buried understanding: Of course."
The 22-year-old also confesses her childhood was "unhappy" because she was "anxious." Her parents even sent her to a therapist.
It was when she got cast in 2007 in the TV series "The Bill Engvall Show" that her mother realized she no longer needed counseling because when she was acting it made her happy.
And that's not all she had to say about her mom.
"I think all mothers are a nightmare -- I don't think you can have children and not lose your godd**n mind," she told Vogue.
The actress also opened up about her breakup with Nicholas Hoult.
"I wake up earlier in the morning when I have new sponges. That counter doesn't even see it coming. ...[Hoult] would never wring them out. We were in the kitchen once, and I picked up the sponge, and it was soapy and wet, and I was like, 'See? These are the kinds of things that make me think we are never going to work.'"
