Pregnant Jennifer Lawrence on Not Talking About Baby to Press

“I don’t want anyone to feel welcome into their existence,” Jennifer Lawrence explains in her Vanity Fair cover story

Soon-to-be mom Jennifer Lawrence wants to keep her baby out of the public eye.

In a wide-ranging cover story for the December issue of Vanity Fair, the pregnant actress, 31, opens up about her baby on the way and the boundaries she’s setting as a mother.

Lawrence, who is currently expecting her first baby with husband Cooke Maroney, tells reporter Karen Valby that while she’s “grateful and excited” to become a mom, she wants to keep her child out of the conversation.

“If I was at a dinner party, and somebody was like, ‘Oh, my God, you’re expecting a baby,’ I wouldn’t be like, ‘God, I can’t talk about that. Get away from me, you psycho!’ But every instinct in my body wants to protect their privacy for the rest of their lives, as much as I can,” she explains.

“I don’t want anyone to feel welcome into their existence,” Lawrence adds. “And I feel like that just starts with not including them in this part of my work.”
