Jennifer Lawrence slides into a booth at the casually elegant Culina restaurant at the Four Seasons Hotel. She's on a lunch break from the daylong grind of promoting the international release of "Silver Linings Playbook," but she's not eating because she just shared a "brick" of homemade lasagna that a journalist gave her during her last interview. Lawrence does accept the focaccia bread and olive oil a waiter offers and politely declines another offering once she's finished. "If I'm going to wear this skirt," Lawrence says, laughing, pointing to the mid-length white number she's sporting, "I can't fit another thing into my gut. " When the waiter touts the lightness of the bread, Lawrence interjects.

Jennifer Lawrence and her beau Nicholas Hoult are out and about, capturing the attention of photographers in London with their cuteness.  Except the Oscar-winning actress doesn't think being hounded by shutterbugs is oh-so-adorable. The "X-Men: Days of Future Past" star gave the finger to a legion of paparazzi following her and her costar as they finished up a date in London. The usually goofy 23-year-old was photographed flipping the bird and wearing a supremely disgruntled expression while sitting in the back of a pink cab Thursday, E!

Jennifer Lawrence has revealed one of her celebrity crushes: John Stamos of "Full House" fame. In a Tuesday appearance on "Conan," the always-unpredictable Oscar nominee said Uncle Jesse was the one celebrity who completely blew her mind. She bumped into him at a party and could not stop staring at his behind. "He was at a party and I turned into the most perverted guy," Lawrence said. "I was like following him into rooms and staring at his ass. I lost my mind when I met him - and I didn't want to meet him because it's not good when I meet people who I really idolize.

When Jennifer Lawrence began shooting "X-Men: First Class" in England this year, following her breakout role in Debra Granik's "Winter's Bone," you could say that she went from playing one freakishly exceptional young woman to another, albeit in very different settings. In the latest chapter of the superhero saga, a prequel to the first three films in the series, Lawrence is cast as Raven Darkholme/Mystique, a lethal shape-shifting mutant. In "Winter's Bone," she portrays Ree Dolly, an almost preternaturally strong, self-possessed teenager charged with resolving a dark and deadly family secret.

"Divergent's" Shailene Woodley could be poised for the same type of young adult stardom her contemporaries Kristen Stewart and Jennifer Lawrence have enjoyed. But it turns out the 22-year-old, who had a large fan following thanks to ABC Family's melodramatic series "The Secret Life of the American Teenager," was hesitant about signing on to the films based on Veronica Roth's bestselling young adult book series. "Having come off a TV show, I was kind of in the place where I was like, 'I'm never signing a contract for more than one movie,' because once you do sign a contract, legally, you're liable," Woodley told the Hollywood Reporter's Tatiana Siegel.

The Oscars on Sunday night were a popular affair with some moving moments -- including speeches from Jared Leto and Lupita Nyong'o -- and some warm humor courtesy of host Ellen DeGeneres. It also had its share of mysteries. Was John Travolta rehearsing backstage or otherwise engaged before he invented the new Broadway singer Adele Dazeem? What was Jennifer Lawrence laughing about when she took the podium to present best actor? And who was that exuberant Frenchman who staged one the night's few upsets?

Jennifer Lawrence has taken another tumble at the Oscars, but this time it wasn't during the telecast. Last year, Lawrence's spill going up the stairs to accept her lead actress Oscar for "Silver Linings Playbook" (and an adorable run-in with Jack Nicholson) launched her to America's-sweetheart status, but the fact that it happened again this Sunday, well, is just reinforcing the notion that she's pretty darn clumsy. Relatable, indeed. The "American Hustle" star, clad in a red peplum Dior gown, apparently stumbled over a cone as she was exiting her limo when she arrived at the Dolby Theatre red carpet.

Remember when the first installment of “The Hunger Games” came out and critics said Jennifer Lawrence didn't look hungry enough to play heroine Katniss Everdeen? Well, about that nonsense : Lawrence recently told BBC News that she made a conscious decision to make her character strong instead of svelte. “I feel like somebody like Kate Moss running at you with a bow and arrow wouldn't be scary,” she said during the interview . And that's not all. The actress also wanted to be a positive role model for the young, impressionable women who'd see the movie.
