Jennifer Lawrence has branded acting "stupid" and admitted she struggles with fame.

The 22-year-old star of The Hunger Games features in a sexy covershoot for Vanity Fair magazine and confessed she feels "vastly uneducated" because she didn't go to high school.

Jennifer said: "Not to sound rude, but [acting] is stupid. Everybody's like, 'How can you remain with a level head?' And I'm like, 'Why would I ever get cocky? I'm not saving anybody's life. There are doctors who save lives and firemen who run into burning buildings. I'm making movies. It's stupid.'"

In The Hunger Games Jennifer's character Katniss becomes famous after winning a battle to the death with other teenagers in a reality TV show. And the Silver Linings Playbook star admitted she could relate to what Katniss goes through.

She said: "I read the books in Oscar season, so for the first time I was in these dresses which didn't look like me and didn't feel like me. I felt like a walking rag doll. Then, in the second book, people's relationships to you suddenly change. You are aware of people staring at you.

"I call my mom sobbing all the time. But it's dealing with the repercussions of no more anonymity. You lose privacy."
