Jennifer Lawrence: “I Don’t Know if I Ever Will Get Married and I’m OK With That”

Jennifer, aged 25, says she isn’t particularly concerned about walking down the aisle because she doesn’t feel as though she needs another person to complete her. She admits she has no plans to get married in the future but does want to have kids:

“I don’t know if I ever will get married and I’m OK with that. I don’t feel that I need anything to complete me. I love meeting people, men, women, whatever, I love people coming into your life and bringing something. I don’t really plan on getting married. I might. I definitely want to be a mother. I don’t really imagine getting married anymore.”

Jennifer recently wrote an essay about the wage gap between genders. The actress explained that she wanted to open people up to discussing the problem more because she often felt the need to stay quiet and she wanted to raise awareness:

“My question to myself was why am I not asking for it? And I think I know I have always kind of carried a habit of submissiveness with the idea that it makes me more likeable. I felt like I had had to say something because we need to talk about it. On average women are paid 21 percent less than men… We can ask for the same exact thing that men do and we do face the reality that we do get judged more. It’s just something that is intrinsic, and I would love to see change.”

With ‘The Hunger Games’ ending and her relationship to actor Nicholas Hoult now over, Jennifer says it feels like a chapter is closing:

“These movies had been my life for so long and they had to come first in everything. I was also in a relationship with somebody for five years and that was my life. So my life was this person and these movies and we broke up around the same time that I wrapped those movies. Being 24 was this whole year of, ‘Who am I without these movies? Who am I without this man?’”
