Jennifer Lawrence says award ceremony fear turns her into a "chihuahua".

The 'Silver Linings Playbook' star won and was nominated for many top prizes for her role as Tiffany Maxwell in the comedy drama but she revealed the star-studded events leave her startled and uncomfortable.

Speaking to The Sun newspaper's Fabulous magazine, she said: "I'm afraid I'm going to go through 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."

The actress revealed she has no filter going from her thoughts to what she says to people.

She added: "I have no control over what comes out of my mouth. I would probably turn into a mute if I read what I said".

She also admitted she finds people "falling down" hilarious although she knows it's "terrible" to laugh.

Jennifer joked: "I think when people run into things or people get hurt...I know I just have a terrible reaction when I start laughing!

"Then I ask if anyone is OK. But I just think people falling down and getting hurt is classic hilarity."
