The Hunger Games star works her hardcore heartbreaking good looks as Elle's December cover girl.

With wind-swept blonde waves and a bold red pout, Jennifer Lawrence stuns in white Balenciaga on the magazine's cover, with plenty of equally smoldering shots inside the issue.

The young star has quickly made a big name for herself in tinsel town, making her mark as an A-lister on the silver screen and the red carpet.

With a fiercely stunning and strong exterior, the actress opens up to Elle about her insecurities, from dieting and dating to living without the frills, the actress tells it how it is:

“I never know what’s going to come out of my mouth, and it’s horrible. I don’t find it positive in any way. When I get older, I’ll be more mature and poised. And I’ll have control over my mouth. One day, I’m going to grow up…When we leave, I’m going to have a knot in my stomach. I’m going to be like, ‘Oh, did I say something wrong? I’m going to get in trouble!," Lawrence reveals.

On dieting for a role, Lawrence says, “I’m never going to starve myself for a part… I don’t want little girls to be like, ‘Oh, I want to look like Katniss, so I’m going to skip dinner. That’s something I was really conscious of during training, when you’re trying to get your body to look exactly right. I was trying to get my body to look fit and strong- not thin and underfed.”

On her British actor boyfriend, Nicholas Hoult, Lawrence says, “He is honestly my best friend, and hopefully I’m his best friend too. He’s my favorite person to be around and makes me laugh harder than anybody…We can eat Cheetos and watch beach volleyball and we turn into two perverted Homer Simpsons, like, ‘Oh, she’s got a nice ass.’ I never thought we’d have such different opinions on asses.”

The 22-year-old superstar enjoys living modestly. “Ten million dollars and I’m still living in my parents’ condo…I’ve always lived in a tiny rat-infested apartment in New York, or a little condo in L.A., or a normal house in Kentucky. I think it would be very bizarre to live in a big mansion by myself.”
