Oscar-winning star Jennifer Lawrence has admitted that she always knew she would one day be famous.

The 23-year-old Silver Linings Playbook star explained that she had an inkling from a young age that she would have a career in entertainment, but wasn't sure what field it would be in.

Speaking to Vogue US, Lawrence said: ''I always knew I was going to be famous. I honest to God don't know how else to describe it. I used to lie in bed and wonder, 'Am I going to be a local TV person? Am I going to be a motivational speaker?' It wasn't a vision.

''But as it's kind of happening, you have this buried understanding: 'Of course.' ''

Jennifer, who shot to fame in the Hunger Games movies, said that she still can't come to terms with being recognised on the street.

She said: "I teeter on seeming ungrateful when I talk about this, but I'm kind of going through a meltdown about it lately. All of a sudden the entire world feels entitled to know everything about me, including what I'm doing on my weekends when I'm spending time with my nephew. And I don't have the right to say, 'I'm with my family.'

''If I were just your average 23-year-old girl and I called the police to say that there were strange men sleeping on my lawn and following me to Starbucks, they would leap into action. But because I am a famous person, its 'Well, sorry, ma'am, there's nothing we can do.' It makes no sense.''

''I am just not OK with it. It's as simple as that. I am just a normal girl and a human being, and I haven't been in this long enough to feel like this is my new normal. I'm not going to find peace with it.''
