Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Drunk, Parties, Rumors,

Jennifer LawrenceJennifer Lawrence worries fans will "get sick" of her.

The 23-year-old actress has been a big screen success in recent years thanks to roles in the Hunger Games and X-Men franchises, but knows she won't stay popular forever. "Nobody can stay beloved forever. People are going to get sick of me," she said.

However, the American Hustle actress admits she most worries about her behavior away from the camera because she thinks she is often "annoying" in public: "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."

Jennifer - who is dating Nicholas Hoult - is trying to curb her behaviour as she is tired of her antics always being turned into amusing internet clips. "It's something I always tell myself, 'You need to calm the f**k down. You don't want to constantly be a GIF,'" she told Marie Claire.

The insider added, "Everyone knows that Jennifer loves wine, but Justin would really like her to stop drinking entirely.

I was able to kind of channel all of that and put it back into this movie. I feel great. I feel really blessed to be here working with this group of guys. I couldn't be better right now. I'm really excited."

The 43-year-old model insists she was "innocent" and didn't really embrace the rock 'n' roll lifestyle like many other models did, and instead she chose to go home after fashion shows. "I didn't really go to the parties - I'd go home after the shows. A lot of bad things can happen at fashion parties, but I wasn't aware of that at the time. I was so innocent. I wasn't aware that people were taking drugs around me and I was never offered anything. And I didn't like the taste of cigarettes or alcohol," she told the UK's Marie Claire.

Although she's doesn't regularly talk to many models from her era, catwalk stars such as Eva Herzigova, Helena Christensen and Nadja Auermann, when they do reconnect they can just pick their relationship up from where they left it.

Claudia - who is married to director Matthew Vaughn, with whom she has three children, son Caspar, 10, daughter Clementine, nine, and daughter Cosima, three - added, "Very occasionally. We're still in contact via e-mail. I might be in LA and e-mail Cindy or see Eva in London. It's very sporadic, but when I see them I can still talk to them and pick up where we left off. That's the kind of bond that I don't think will ever break. Even though there was a large amount of competition, there was also a camaraderie and we knew that we were part of that club that was very special."

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Celeb News, Celebrity Gossip,

Marion CotillardMarion Cotillard believes many actors suffer from substance abuse issues because they are "fragile creatures."

The Dark Knight Rises actress thinks that some of her contemporaries give in to the allure of booze and illegal highs because they are looking for an escape from their stressful careers. When asked why she thinks so many actors succumb to alcohol and drugs, Marion said, "Actors are fragile creatures. The wider the gap, the more vulnerable we are. Any form of escape can seem good. You have to navigate through the different emotions because you're placed in tough positions as an actor. Everything we give in a performance can come back to torture."

The 38-year-old French star has also revealed her profession has led her to become enthralled with the ideals of the "American Dream" - which is the ideal that everyone deserves the opportunity to achieve prosperity and success. Marion lived in New York for a brief period to learn English and while she was in The Big Apple she fell in love with the way of life in the USA and the ideas Americans hold dear.
