May the baby odds be ever in her favor? It seems as though Jennifer Lawrence almost never made it to her big screen debut as Katniss Everdeen, and having a family could have been why! The 22-year-old actress sat down with The Daily Beast, and not only is she nothing like her Hunger Games portrayal, but she’s got her sights set on having kids, too.
When asked if she thinks she will have kids, Lawrence said, “I do feel like the reason I was put on this Earth is to be a mother, which is why it’s funny for me to end up with such an overwhelming career.”
Lawrence added that she almost didn’t accept her role in the Hunger Games series. “I was going to be the indie actor. I was going to drive my kids in a minivan and have a normal life. I knew if I said yes to this, it would change my life. I wasn’t sure if I was ready,” she said.
Lawrence had three days to make a decision for her role, which her own mother eventually helped her decide to pursue. Lawrence explained that if she was going to be well known for something, that the Hunger Games would be something she could be proud of doing.
We’re sure there are so many thankful movie fans for Lawrence’s mom! She did make one mistake recently, though. Lawrence received a ballot to vote for the Oscar nominations, and her mother intercepted the ballot and voted herself! Thankfully for Lawrence, her mother addressed the vote incorrectly and Lawrence will get to submit the vote herself.
“She thought I’d think that’s hilarious. I’m going to get kicked out of the Academy! Fortunately, she did it wrong and mailed it back to herself, so I got to do it again,” Lawrence said.
