The actress said that she finds being the centre of attention a very uncomfortable experience, as it puts her in a vulnerable position.
Lawrence told Vanity Fair magazine: "I know that's a cliché, but it's uncomfortable having to pose when people are shouting at you and the next day you just get slaughtered. You walk out there and go, 'Hate me!'"
Discussing her appearance at last year's Oscars, Lawrence said that it gave her more insight into how her Hunger Games character Katniss felt getting fawned over in the movie.
"I felt like a walking rag doll," she explained.
Lawrence continued by revealing that she somewhat understands the public's obsession with celebrity, saying: "I had the basic 'NSync obsession. And Leonardo DiCaprio. But when kids do weird things to me, I'm like, 'I never did that when I was little'."
However, she went on to say: "I went nuts over Harry Potter and read it four times and pretended I was a witch, but I don't think I would have done some of the - actually, that's not true.
"I saw Daniel Radcliffe when I was doing David Letterman and flipped out. I was screaming. So never mind. I take back everything I said."
