Jennifer Lawrence Says She Googles Herself

Apparently, Jennifer Lawrence has a bit of a masochistic streak.

In an interview with The New York Times, the 25-year-old Hunger Games actress admitted that she has been guilty of performing a Google search on her name.

"I'm so scared to say anything now. I can see every negative way that people can take it, and I don't want to sound like I'm complaining," Jennifer said. "It probably comes from Googling myself. If it were up to me, I would not talk. I would just act."

Yikes, J. Law! Since we totally feel like you're one of our real-life besties, allow us to kindly advise you to stop subjecting yourself to such mental torture. You're probably one tough chick IRL, but the thought of you typing the words "Jennifer Lawrence Ugly" just doesn't sit right with us. (J. Law blames that particular search on a period-induced emotional roller coaster, so we'll give her a pass.)

Believe it or not, rifling through a gazillion links that focus on everything from the actress' personal life to her hair and hilarious one-liners has its advantages. As crazy as it sounds, going down the Google rabbit hole seems to have helped Jennifer develop a healthier mindset when it comes to coping with the pressures of fame.

"I find a certain peace by thinking of me in public as sort of an avatar self. You out there can have the avatar me. I can keep me," Jennifer said. "And I just try to acknowledge that this scrutiny is stressful, and that anyone would find it stressful. So I've got to try to let it go, and try to be myself, and focus on important things, like picking up dog poop."

Exactly, J. Law! We're totally cool with you focusing more on life's more meaningful moments (like poop scooping), just as long as you still make time for your epic photobombs.
