Jennifer Lawrence says growing up in Kentucky she always knew she would be famous.

The best-actress Oscar winner for "Silver Linings Playbook" tells the September issue of Vogue magazine that she used to "lie in bed and wonder" about what would make her well-known.

She said, "It wasn't a vision. But as it's kind of happening, you have this buried understanding: of course."

Still, she doesn't necessarily agree with the idea of "making peace" with her fame.

"I am just not OK with it," she said. "It's as simple as that. I am just a normal girl and a human being, and I haven't been in this long enough to feel like this is my new normal. I'm not going to find peace with it."

The 22-year-old also said her childhood was "unhappy" because she was "anxious" and her parents sent her to a therapist.

It was when she was cast in 2007 in the TV series "The Bill Engvall Show" that her mother realized she no longer needed counseling because when she was acting, it made her happy.

Lawrence will continue to be on the spotlight -- she's set to appear in the upcoming "Hunger Games" sequels, as well as in the fifth installment of "X-Men," due out in May 2014. She'll also grace the big screen in "American Hustle," alongside Amy Adams, Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper and Jeremy Renner, later this year.
