Jennifer Lawrence: Staying Sane

Jennifer Lawrence-400“I don’t take any of my characters’ pain home with me… I’ve never been through anything that my characters have been through.

“And I can’t go around looking for roles that are exactly like my life. So I just use my imagination.

“If it ever came down to the point where, to make a part better, I had to lose a little bit of my sanity, I wouldn’t do it.”

Jennifer Lawrence [‘The Hunger Games’, ‘Silver Linings Playbook’ etc] [imdb.com]

But a number of actors say it is hard for them to leave their characters “at the office.”

Mariska Hargitay, for example, has talked about finding it hard to “shake off” some of the horrific stories she helps portray on her long-running TV show “Law and Order: Special Victims Unit.”
