Jennifer Lawrence Struggled With Identity After Nicholas Hoult Split
Jennifer Lawrence felt a little lost after wrapping her final The Hunger Games movie and ending a longtime romance with Nicholas Hoult.
The actress began working on the first installment of the action adventure franchise, as main protagonist Katniss Everdeen, in 2011, and she completed the final sequel, Mockingjay – Part 2, in the summer of 2014.
The timing of the project’s completion coincided with the end of her longterm romance and she admits it took her a while to come to terms with the sudden changes in her life.
“These movies have been my life for so long and they had to come first in everything,” she explained to newswoman Diane Sawyer. “I was also in a relationship with somebody for five years 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?’ It was always ‘we.’ It sounds so young to say that but it’s true.”
Lawrence subsequently moved on to date another Brit, Coldplay rocker Chris Martin, who she parted ways with earlier this year.
She recently told the new issue of Vogue magazine she “can’t wait to be married,” although she confessed to being single and “lonely” as guys rarely ask her out on dates, but now it appears Lawrence, now 25, has had a change of heart about heading down the aisle.
“I don’t know if I ever will get married and I’m OK with that,” she mused. “I don’t feel like I need anything to complete me. I love meeting people… I don’t really plan on getting married; I might.”
However, there is one part of her future she is sure about – starting a family.
“I definitely want to be a mother,” she added. “I don’t really imagine getting married anymore.”
The Hunger Game: Mockingjay – Part 2 lands in theaters November 20.
