Lawrence: I'm chihuahua on carpet

Jennifer Lawrence has claimed she is like a "chihuahua" on red carpets, because she gets nervous and talks too much.
The Hunger Games beauty has picked up a string of awards this year for her role in Silver Lining's Playbook, but she told the new issue of Fabulous magazine she worries what embarrassing things she might have said.
Jennifer confessed: "I'm afraid I'm going to go my whole life being scared like a chihuahua. It's not my comfort zone.
"Making movies is where I belong. I shouldn't be heard just talking. So, when I'm doing movies, I'm really happy. That's where I'm comfortable, that's my home. When you put me on a red carpet or on a stage, I turn into chihuahua Jennifer.
"I have no control over what comes out of my mouth. I would probably turn into a mute if I read what I said."
The 22-year-old Oscar winner also admitted she is not comfortable with her celebrity status.
She said: "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.
"A lot of things that I didn't even think could ever be possible for me have happened, all in a year. It's been overwhelming, but in a wonderful way."
