Jennifer Lawrence is a woman who knows exactly what she wants.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay—Part 1 actress graces the cover of the latest issue of French magazine Madame Figaro and opens up about what she's looking for in a partner.

J.Law revealed her one nonnegotiable for a potential love interest in her life: someone "who allows her to be herself in all situations."

She added, "Otherwise, you might as well stay single."

The 24-year-old beauty, who was previously linked to Coldplay frontman Chris Martin as recently as a month ago, also admitted that she's adamant about keeping her relationships as private as possible—the keyword here being possible.

Lawrence revealed that it took her nearly three days to agree to play the role of Katniss Everdeen and that she racked her brain with the pros and cons of being at the center of such a massive franchise.

"I realized that whatever I do, at any level, I would lose a part of my private life," Lawrence said in quotes obtained by Daily Mail. "For each 'everyday' photo published, I generally spend three hours playing cat and mouse with photographers."

Understandably so, the outspoken blonde wants to keep things close to her chest, so she won't exactly be posting photos on Instagram or tweeting at fans any time soon.

"All that doesn't interest me for a second!" she explained. "I'm always hundreds of emails behind."
