  • - 'Cause I feel like everybody always treats actors like,

  • as they probably should, emotional, like, landmines,

  • everybody is like tiptoeing around because you never know

  • what's going to set them off,

  • and it's just a job, like any other.

  • You look how you look, and be comfortable.

  • Like what are you going to do, be hungry every single day

  • to make other people happy?

  • That's just dumb.

  • My childhood in my mind seems so lovely,

  • and just picturesque, and then I talk back about it,

  • I'm like, "Oh my God."

  • - She's the highest paid actress in the world

  • and her films have grossed over five billion dollars.

  • She had her breakthrough in 2010

  • playing a poverty-stricken teenager

  • in the independent film "Winter's Bone."

  • In 2013, she was listed in Time Magazine's

  • 100 Most Influential People in the World.

  • She's Jennifer Lawrence, and here's my take

  • on her top 10 rules for success.

  • Rule number one is my personal favorite,

  • and make sure to stick around all the way to the end

  • for some special bonus clips.

  • Also, as Jennifer's talking, if she says something

  • that really resonates with you,

  • please leave it in the comments below

  • and put quotes around it so other people

  • can be inspired as well.

  • Enjoy.

  • (swoosh)

  • (dramatic music)

  • - Hi, I'm Jennifer Lawrence.

  • Have you been hiding under a rock?

  • How would you not know that.

  • I've always had this really gross, dangerous mentality of,

  • no consideration of failure.

  • Just never even considering the thought of failing,

  • like, if I want something I just go until I get it.

  • And that doesn't always work, but.

  • - The interesting thing for me to talk to you,

  • and what makes you so fascinating

  • is just the talent that you see on the screen,

  • but at the same time,

  • there is a certain innocence and yet a certain power,

  • and it seems to me it's both artist and also business.

  • - Well thank you.

  • - [Charlie] Do you believe that?

  • - Yes. - Am I right?

  • - I've worked very hard to make that (laughs)

  • to make that true, so thank you.

  • - [Charlie] That it's both that.

  • - Thank you, because without gaining

  • some sort of control over the business

  • I lose some control over the creative,

  • which is most important.

  • - [Charlie] The more you control the business,

  • the more you can give flower to the creative.

  • - Exactly.

  • - [Charlie] Or give wings to the creative.

  • - Yeah, so I used to stay out of it.

  • "I don't care.

  • "I'm an artist.

  • "I don't need it."

  • But this is my business now, and it is important.

  • My agent always says I'm his only client

  • that ever calls him back as soon as he,

  • because it's my business, and I respect my business.

  • - [Charlie] Your agent says you're his only client

  • that calls him back to say--

  • - Immediately.

  • - Immediately. - If I have a missed call,

  • I'm probably the only,

  • I return emails, I return phone calls because--

  • - [Charlie] Because you want to know what options there are.

  • - Yes, I've worked really hard to build this,

  • and I want to continue building it,

  • and it's my business, my personal business,

  • so I don't understand how people do slack.

  • - I'm really annoying with how I choose things,

  • 'cause it's really like a feeling,

  • which just sounds stupid,

  • but sometimes I've read scripts before that have...

  • I just recently have read a script that I was sobbing.

  • I've never been so moved by a story,

  • and I thought it was the most beautiful, amazing story.

  • And I just couldn't wait for this movie to get made

  • so that the world could see it,

  • but I just wasn't her, I wasn't the character,

  • and I couldn't.

  • And I also had an experience once

  • where I read the script and I loved it,

  • but I couldn't stop picturing Amanda Seyfried,

  • and so I emailed the people and I was like,

  • "You got to hire Amanda Seyfried for this."

  • I couldn't stop picturing it.

  • So a lot of it is the things that he said,

  • you want to be part of a good film

  • and you want to make a good movie,

  • but there's also a huge emotional component for me

  • that I don't know how to describe it.

  • It's just kind of sometimes something clicks

  • and I feel like that person does

  • in a weird way exist in me,

  • and it sounds like a stupid thing to say,

  • and sometimes it just doesn't,

  • and sometimes I can read a character

  • and absolutely love her,

  • but I know that I could never, I'm not her or something,

  • I don't know.

  • - [Interviewer] So how was the experience

  • of being directed by David finally?

  • - Oh, a dream come true,

  • 'cause when you're such a huge fan of somebody

  • you build it up so much

  • and you're always prepared to be let down,

  • but he was just the nicest, warmest, sweetest person

  • in the entire world,

  • just has such a warm, good energy,

  • and then he just directs in this,

  • I've never worked that way,

  • and that's such an incredible thing to do

  • is to kind of realize that there's no one or right way

  • to make a movie or direct an actor.

  • - [Interviewer] So did he do something

  • that you particularly liked that you haven't done?

  • - Yeah, he would interrupt like any monologue,

  • no matter what it was, no matter how serious, he would go,

  • "Oh, it's such bullshit.

  • "It's so bad, it's so bad." (laughs)

  • I'd be like, "Alright, let's do it again."

  • It's just like so funny to be able to like,

  • because you can be honest like on this whole new level.

  • That's why Bradley and I don't want to stop working together,

  • because we can just be like, "Don't say that.

  • "Don't wear that.

  • "What are you doing?"

  • Just boss each other around.

  • Yeah, I like him not wasting time

  • and just like cutting the bullshit,

  • and just getting real,

  • 'cause I feel like everybody always treats actors like,

  • as they probably should, emotional like landmines,

  • everybody is like tip toeing around

  • 'cause you never know what's going to set them off.

  • It's just a job like any other.

  • Sometimes you're going to be good,

  • and sometimes you're going to be bad.

  • I like it when somebody is like, "That was bad.

  • "Do it again."

  • - [Interviewer] So when he's saying that

  • he's saying it mostly about you guys, not about his script?

  • - No, it's never about a script.

  • It's always about our performance. (laughs)

  • - [Interviewer] You just missed the mark.

  • - Yeah no, it'll just be like,

  • "You were really bad."

  • The scariest part of my job

  • is the gamble of reading a script.

  • Which one do you do?

  • Who makes it?

  • You never know.

  • You can read an amazing script

  • and hire a director who seems fantastic,

  • and have an amazing co star,

  • and you can be on set and be completely out of control

  • and watch it either fall apart,

  • or you can love it

  • and then audiences don't respond,

  • and then there is planning of a year.

  • You know, if you're going to have this movie come out,

  • what follows that, and then what?

  • And that's the most stressful part of my job,

  • 'cause it is a gamble,

  • but it's important to me that I do make those decisions.

  • I don't want an agent's career or a lawyer's career.

  • I need advice.

  • I have an amazing agent and I really respect his opinion,

  • but I would never do...

  • My entire career is dictated by a feeling,

  • and I've gone through great lengths

  • to try and make sure that it stays that way.

  • I've shed big parts of my team,

  • 'cause I don't want more people to say no to.

  • - [Charlie] You trust your gut?

  • - I do, and sometimes I'm wrong.

  • - And when you're wrong, what do you think happens?

  • - Everything is fine, it happens.

  • In business there's ups and downs.

  • I would much rather blame myself though than go,

  • "I shouldn't have listened to that person."

  • At least I go, "Well, you learned."

  • - You know why you made the choice

  • even if it turned out to be the wrong choice.

  • - Yeah. - Yeah.

  • - But when I just started

  • and I had no idea what I was doing,

  • I didn't what else to do, I didn't know how to act,

  • I just knew how to talk,

  • and I think once I started understanding I was like,

  • "Well, I don't really want to learn how to act.

  • "I just want to keep learning how to talk."

  • And I've always just been such a people studier

  • that I think that for me

  • the best schooling I could have ever gotten

  • was watching and listening to the world.

  • I mean just watching people talk,

  • watching people do different things.

  • So many of the things that I do on screen

  • are things that I've seen other people do

  • that I thought were interesting.

  • you know, like funny things with people's mouths,

  • or when they're upset the things they do with their hands.

  • Like this one time my friend was crying

  • and she was so upset.

  • She put her hands up

  • and she didn't know what to do with them

  • and they were just shaking.

  • And I was comforting her,

  • but at the same time I was like,

  • "That's kind of cool." (laughs)

  • - Do it again, do it again, yeah.

  • - Yes, yeah, I know.

  • It was like, "What did you do right there?"

  • So I had an emotional scene in The Poker House

  • and almost every time I cried I did that with my hands,

  • and I don't know, I just pick up from people.

  • - Having experienced the body image criticism in Hollywood,

  • what is your advice to young girls

  • dealing with the same treatment from their peers,

  • and response to those who judge others based on appearances?

  • - Well screw those people.

  • (audience laughs)

  • - No, and it-- (applause)

  • Oh, thanks. (laughs)

  • Yeah, I mean it's something that everybody experiences.

  • I experienced it in school before I was famous.

  • The world has a certain idea of,

  • you know, we see this airbrushed perfect model,

  • and then if you don't look like that, you're..

  • And it's just too easy for people.

  • I've got a million ideas coming at the same time,

  • but you just have to look past it.

  • You look how you look, and be comfortable.

  • Like what are you going to do, be hungry every single day

  • to make other people happy?

  • That's just dumb.

  • And the shows like the Fashion Police and things like that

  • are just showing these generations of young people

  • to judge people based on things,

  • they put values on all the things that are wrong,

  • and that it's okay to just point at people
