Jennifer Lawrence on the Paparazzi: They Should Be Arrested!

Jennifer Lawrence has something in common with Kanye West.

And, no, it's not that both have seen Kim Kardashian nude.

In the latest issue of Vogue, the Catching Fire star goes off on the paparazzi, raising a somewhat valid question for why these "reporters" are even allowed to exist.

“If I were just your average 23-year-old girl and I called the police to say that there were strange men sleeping on my lawn and following me to Starbucks, they would leap into action.

"But because I am a famous person, well, sorry, ma’am, there’s nothing we can do. It makes no sense… I am just not okay with it. 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.”

But Lawrence should have maybe prepared herself for life in the spotlight, considering she also tells the magazine that she always thought she'd be well-known.

"I always knew that I was going to be famous," she says. "I honest to God don't know how else to describe it. I used to lie in bed and wonder, 'Am I going to be a local TV person? Am I going to be a motivational speaker?' It wasn't a vision. But as it's kind of happening, you have this buried understanding: Of course."

Still, that doesn't mean J. Law enjoys every aspect of fame.

"I'm just really starting to feel like a monkey in a zoo," she says.
