May 8, 2014 — -- Jennifer Lawrence admits she has one thing in common with her "X-Men: Days of Future Past" character: "I guess I can understand what it would feel like to have a crush on Nicholas Hoult!"

Lawrence usually never talks about her boyfriend of almost three years, but the Oscar winner opened up to Marie Claire, even about what attracts her to Hoult.

"Looks can go pretty far. Nobody can deny a beautiful face. Fortunately, I have one ... Oh, no! I mean my boyfriend! I didn't mean my face! Oh, my God! I meant I'm with somebody who has a beautiful face," she told the magazine.

She continued, "Humor and intelligence are key. Looks fade very quickly. I love a unique mind. Somebody who's his own person."

Lawrence is one of the hottest actresses in Hollywood right now, so she also revealed the keys to making it work while the two are busy filming far away from each other.

"It's important to keep your individuality when you're a couple and keep your own life," she added. "When we're busy, we agree to mutually ignore each other. Not completely, but neither of us gets mad when the other doesn't text back or call. Life's super-busy. Obviously you know what they're doing, and you trust them. We're so young that it would almost be like if we lived in the same city, what would happen? We'd be living together. At least this way he's in the same boat as I am: We can both go out and have our own lives and know that we have each other. Why am I talking about my relationship?"

She even added details of her plans to mess with people using Hoult's Twitter account.

"I sometimes come up with things that I think he needs to tweet, like 'Let the panda bears die' -- you know, just to f*** with people -- and he's just like, 'No.' He never supports my ideas on his Twitter," she said.

Aside from her personal life, Lawrence also commented on the possibility of getting too hot and maybe flaming out in Hollywood.

"Nobody can stay beloved forever," she added. "I never believed it, the whole time. I was like, just wait: People are going to get sick of me. My picture is everywhere, my interviews are everywhere; 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. But it's something I always tell myself: 'You need to calm the f--- down. You don't want to constantly be a GIF.'"

She continued, ""Honestly, I'm just doing my best ... But if people want to start the backlash, I'm the captain of that team. As much as you hate me, I'm 10 steps ahead of you."

Finally, she commented on her second fall at the Oscars earlier this year and how it was NOT done on purpose.

She said she was trying to do the right thing, wave to fans and then suddenly "there's a traffic cone. The second I hit it, I was laughing, but on the inside I was like, 'You're f*****. They're totally going to think this is an act.' If I were Jared Leto, I would completely agree. But trust me, if I was going to plan it, I would have done it at the Golden Globes or the SAGs. I would have never done it at two Oscars in a row. I watch Homeland — I'm craftier than that!"
