Jennifer Lawrence Talks Growing Up a Tomboy in Louisville

"When I was a child, I inherited clothes from my two older brothers," she said.

But it wasn't always that way, the Oscar winner, 24, told Madame Figaro. Indeed, she admitted she used to be kind of a tomboy.

"I hated my first dress for red carpets, because I never felt comfortable in these glamorous dresses," she said.

She continued, "In Louisville, when I was a child, I inherited clothes from my two older brothers [Ben and Blaine] that I put together with thing that my mother unearthed out of yard sales. I was a tomboy."

Still, Lawrence admits she has always been hesitant to be thrust into the A-list celebrity world. She waited "three long days" before accepting "Hunger Games" when she was offered the huge role a few years back.

"I dreamed of independent films. I was afraid of being identified as a prominent character for young people," she said.

She wasn't sure she wanted "this life," but "I was afraid of one day regretting having missed the [opportunity]. Since then, I realized that whatever I do, at any level, I would lose a part of my private life."
