    Why do we love Jennifer Lawrence so much? Because she hasn't let fame go to her head.

    The actress says what she's thinking, swears when she feels like it, gets starstruck when she meets a Hollywood legend and then manages to pull off a tumble during the biggest moment of her career—yeah, she's pretty lovable, and during an interview with Fabulous magazine, J.Law explains how she's been able to remain so humble after becoming one of Tinseltown's biggest stars. 

    "I just constantly feel so lucky, that I don't really have time to feel cocky," she told the mag. "I was raised to have value for money, to have respect for money, even though you have a lot of it."

    Does she get tempted to splurge from time to time? Of course, but then her conscience usually kicks in. 

    "That's why minibars are difficult, because it's like yes, I can afford a $6 Snickers bar, but there's just something wrong with that! I still drive my same car I've been driving for a long time and I haven't bought a house yet."

    The Oscar winner credits her family for keeping her grounded and humble because, frankly, they would never let their little girl turn into a diva or, in Lawrence's words...

    "My family is not the kind of family that would ever let me turn into an a--hole or anything like that, so I am fortunate to have them," she said, and added that she stays away from the celeb scene and hangs out with people "who know me, like my close friends who I have known forever and my family obviously."

    In fact, the Silver Linings Playbook star feels a little awkward when people look at her as the bankable star in Hollywood that she is. 

    "There is kind of a sadness that happens when you look into someone's eyes and you realize that they're looking at you a certain way, like you are not really you," she explained, "I don't ever walk around feeling famous. I walk around feeling the exact same way I have walked around my entire life, but it's not until I talk to somebody and see in their eyes that I'm different. It makes me feel weird."

    Get used to it, J.Law, you're kind of a big deal.
