Academy-Award-winning actor Jennifer Lawrence covers the Holiday 2016 edition of Vanity Fair. Lawrence is lensed by Peter Lindbergh, styled by Jessica Diehl in looks from Dior, Valentino Haute Couture, Alberta Ferretti, Van Cleef & Arpels, Francesco Scognamiglio, Armani Privé, and Jean Paul Gaultier Haute Couture.
Interviewed by Julie Miller, the outspoken actor who grossed $46 million last year as the highest-paid female actor in Hollywood, is her usual, unusually frank self. On the subject of kids, 'J Law' says it's a fact that she would take better care of her dog Pippa. This paragraph caught my eye:
This fall, Lawrence flew to Africa to shadow photojournalist Lynsey Addario as she documented South Sudanese refugees crossing into Uganda. Although the experience offered her a rare veil of anonymity (when introducing herself to a U.N. worker as Jennifer, he replied, “Ahhh, like Jennifer Lopez”), she was haunted by her uselessness. “The worst feeling about being there was that I wasn’t helping anybody,” she says of the humanitarian crisis. “I was doing a character study.” (Lawrence is also a producer on It’s What I Do, the Spielberg film based on Addario’s memoir.) Lawrence, who has donated generously to a number of charities (including $2 million to a children’s hospital in her hometown this year), said she found solace in vowing to visit again in a more active role.
