Movie star and Academy Award winning actress has countless achievements to her name, but as she told 60 minutes in an interview that will air on Sunday night, US time, receiving her high school diploma isn’t one of them.
“I dropped out of middle school,” Jennifer Lawrence told interviewer Bill Whitaker.
“I don’t technically have a GED or a diploma. I am self-educated,” she confessed with a laugh.
When asked why she felt the need to leave school altogether at just 14, Lawrence admitted she “never felt smart”.
Luckily for her, after dabbling in small amounts of modelling to begin with, she got her hands on some scripts and she knew right away that acting was her true calling.
“…When I’m reading the script and I feel like I know exactly what it would look like if somebody felt that way, that was a whole part of my brain that I didn’t even know existed, something I could be confident in, and I didn’t want to let it go,” Lawrence said.
