Jennifer Lawrence: I'm jaded after Googling myself

Even Jennifer Lawrence freaks out when she Googles herself.

The actress told the New York Times that sometimes she feeds her own insecurities by looking up her name on the search engine.

She said, "I'm so scared to say anything now. I can see every negative way that people can take it, and I don't want to sound like I'm complaining. 'Oh, she's so conceited now. Oh, she's so jaded now.' It probably comes from Googling myself. If it were up to me, I would not talk. I would just act."

The interviewer, Brooks Barnes, admonished her and told her to never Google herself again.

The actress shot back: "You try being 22, having a period and staying away from Google. I once Googled 'Jennifer Lawrence Ugly.' [Laughs] Do I sound bitchy?"

Lawrence admitted that it's not productive to find what mean things people are saying about her.

"I can't think of a more wasteful use of my time than to worry about this," she said. "Why do I care what people think? But I do. I just can't pretend I don't care. I get really insecure about it."

Then she added, "I'm going to leave here and think, Oh God, why couldn't I just have been cool and confident?"

She also confessed that she takes medication for her anxiety.

J. Law really knows how to be relatable.
