Jennifer Lawrence, Vanity Fair

Ellen von Unwerth exclusively for Vanity Fair

Any Jennifer Lawrence fans out there who feel the need to scream at the mere sight of her, well, take heart: because she knows exactly how you feel.

The newly minted Golden Globe nominee is already starting the new year off on a high, gracing the cover of Vanity Fair, and opened up about her own fangirling obsessions as well the village it takes to get her red-carpet ready during awards season.

So, who did the young J.Law freak out over in her prefame days?

"I had the basic 'NSync obsession," she told the magazine. "And Leonardo DiCaprio. But when kids do weird things to me, I'm like, 'I never did that when I was little.'"

Er, on second thought...

"I went nuts over Harry Potter and read it four times and pretended I was a witch, but I don't think I would have done some of the—actually, that's not true," she corrected herself. "I saw Daniel Radcliffe when I was doing David Letterman and flipped out. I was screaming. So never mind. I take back everything I said."

One thing that doesn't get her fangirling in motion, however, is her red carpet duties, only ramping up now that she's hit veritable movie star status.

Referring to the red capet as "torture," she clarified her stance on posing duties.

"I know that's a cliché, but it's uncomfortable having to pose when people are shouting at you and the next day you just get slaughtered. You walk out there and go, 'Hate me!'"

Discussing her appearance at last year's Oscars, she said it gave her more insight into how her Hunger Games character Katniss felt getting fawned over, saying, "I felt like a walking rag doll."

A rag doll who can really stop worrying about making any worst-dressed lists. Trust us on this one.
