I'm `like a Chihuahua` on red carpet, says Jennifer Lawrence

Washington, March 28 (ANI): Jennifer Lawrence has apparently compared herself to a scared 'Chihuahua,' whenever she is on the red carpet.

The 22-year-old Oscar winner insisted, in an interview with U.K.'s Fabulous magazine, that her seemingly carefree demeanor is actually the opposite, and she's a ball of nerves whenever she's the center of attention at an awards ceremony or movie premiere, Us Magazine reported.

The 'Silver Linings Playbook' actress admitted that the place she feels she's really herself is when she's playing someone else.

Lawrence, who split from British actor Nicholas Hoult in January, said that she fears she's going to go her whole life being scared like a chihuahua.

The star added that making movies makes her happy and when you put her on a red carpet or on a stage, she turns into 'chihuahua Jennifer'. (ANI)
