Jennifer Lawrence, star of The Hunger Games, opens up about her relationship with boyfriend Nicholas Hoult in Elle Magazine’s December issue.
The 22-year-old, who has remained very humble since becoming famous starring as Katniss Everdeen, met Hoult in 2010 while filming X-Men, according to Us Weekly. He fits her laid-back lifestyle. She says he is her best friend and favorite person to be around.
“[My boyfriend] is honestly my best friend, and hopefully I’m his best friend too,” she said. “He’s my favorite person to be around and makes me laugh harder than anybody.”
Having the same sense of humor is an added bonus.
“We can eat Cheetos and watch beach volleyball and we turn into two perverted Homer Simpsons, like, ‘Oh, she’s got a nice ass,’” she added. “I never thought we’d have such different opinions on asses.”
Her smart, sarcastic humor, and a tendency to speak without sugarcoating things may not bother her boyfriend, but it’s one thing Lawrence wishes she could change.
“I never know what’s going to come out of my mouth, and it’s horrible. I don’t find it positive in any way,” she told Elle. “When I get older, I’ll be more mature and poised. And I’ll have control over my mouth. One day, I’m going to grow up.”
But by not letting fame go to her head and having the down-to-earth personality she has, many, including her boyfriend would probably agree, that she doesn’t have to change a thing about herself.
