'Hunger Games' star Lawrence says fame can be lonely

Jennifer Lawrence says her career can make her feel lonely.

The 21-year-old actress has been catapulted to fame by her role as Katniss Everdeen in 'The Hunger Games' and although she has enjoyed travelling the world to promote the movie she does miss her family and friends.

When asked if she ever feels lonely, she said: "Sometimes. You stay in these amazing hotel suites and I love the travelling and the people I work with, but yes, it's a lonely lifestyle."

Jennifer - who is dating actor Nicholas Hoult - has had the same group of close friends for years and she insists it is important for her to remain close to them.

The young starlet is wary about getting blinded by the trappings of fame and she believes her pals and close relationship with her parents Karen and Gary.

In an interview with Stylist magazine, she revealed: "It took me years to find the friends I've got in LA. I've got five or six amazing friends that I trust and love, I know exactly who I am and don't care about anything else. I think it's so important to keep those people and family in your life.

"It's so easy to think that this (celebrity) is reality; that people are lining up outside just to write down what I have to say. That's not real; that's weird."
