Jennifer Lawrence strives to show us that she's still Jenny from the block at every available opportunity, but the young actress is wise enough to fear the fickle opinions of the public.

In a recent interview with Marie Clare magazine, JLaw went meta on our asses and got the pom-poms out to cheer on her own demise. Yeah, I'm not sure how that works either.

The [The Hunger Games](movie:44466) actress went on to reveal that she can feel the nations collective sighs about her 'staged' antics on her face. She explained that;

Nobody can stay beloved forever. I never believed it, the whole time. I was like, just wait: People are going to get sick of me. My picture is everywhere, my interviews are everywhere; I'm way too annoying because I get on red carpets and I'm really hyper, most likely because I've been drinking, and I can’t not photo-bomb somebody if it’s a good opportunity. Honestly, I'm just doing my best. But if people want to start the backlash, I'm the captain of that team. As much as you hate me, I'm 10 steps ahead of you

I wrote about the rising tide of Jennifer Lawrence backlash after the Oscars this year, but I can't decide to be impressed about the way JLaw is addressing it in the press.

Seeing as the public's teeth are on edge about the actresses 'random acts of realness', fighting fire with fire was either incredibly irritating, or the smartest thing ever. I guess it depends on how the notoriously erratic general public react. If they start throwing their faeces at Lawrence on Reddit, she should maybe rethink her tactics.

Personally, I love Jennifer Lawrence and find it upsetting she would have to face a backlash at all. The compulsory descriptions of the 23-year-old actress as 'the quirky', 'the hilarious' or 'America's sweetheart' Jennifer Lawrence is chipping away at my armour though.

The general public are like a toddlers with a chihuahua puppy when it comes to idolizing public figures. They will squeeze it, and squash it and love it to death and then be genuinely upset about what they have done.

Everyone immensely popular has to fall from their pedestal sooner or later, but I hope the fall immensely cushioned for JLaw.

Do you think Jennifer Lawrence should be worried about a backlash?
