Success hasn't spoiled Jennifer Lawrence

"I'm actually surprised at how surprised everyone is that nothing has changed or feels different," Lawrence says.

"I think everyone believes that when you win an Oscar, it's like some sort of magical charm that changes everything in your life. It really hasn't.

" I have had the most amazing year — career wise — and I am so grateful and so honored but it really hasn't changed anything for my personal life.

"I still put on my acting pants one leg at a time." She has seen a lot more filmmakers interested in her. She's finished, or is working on, eight different projects that will keep her busy for the next few years.

As she's already shown, Lawrence likes to work on a range of projects. Current projects include the fact-based "American Hustle," a reprisal of her role as Mystique in the "X-Men" sequel, the final two chapters in the "Hunger Games" and a new version of John Steinbeck's "East of Eden."

She even has a role in the flat-out comedy "Dumb and Dumber To."

The attention Lawrence is getting in the film industry has created what she calls "pinch me" moments.

"I am amazed at some of the people who even know about me now or that I hear want to work with me or want to send me over a script," Lawrence says.

"These are people I have idolized and that has been very jaw-dropping and lovely."

The moments that have stayed with her the most have nothing to do with Hollywood's elite. Lawrence gets emotional when she talks about how young fans — especially young women — have told her how much they have been inspired by the "Hunger Games" books and her work in bringing them to life.
