Jennifer Lawrence is opening up about her body image, homebody attitude and introspective New Year's resolution.

The 22-year-old Silver Linings Playbook star, who covers the January 2013 issue of Marie Claire South Africa looking hot in a platinum silver cutout dress, told the mag about the one thing she wants to get better about doing in 2013. 

"My New Year's Resolution is to stand up for myself," Lawrence said. "It's hard for me. Nobody wants to be disliked. You always want to be polite and be nice. I tried to find a balance in saying what I mean and still being nice. I can't do it. I have this ‘okay' attitude and everything. I end up allowing myself to get walked over and resenting it."

And don't look for this talented starlet to be in the tabloids for party-girl shenanigans any time soon.

Lawrence said she much prefers to be home than out on the scene.

"I don't like going out that much," the Oscar-nominated actress continued. "I'm kind of an old lady. After it's 11, I'm like ‘Don't these kids ever get tired?' When I'm out, I think about my couch."

As for body image issues that tend to plague those in the industry, the Hunger Games hottie said she hasn't been affected, saying, "I'd rather look chubby on screen and like a person in real life."

Hollywood heroine indeed.
