The Mockingjay star says she wants someone "who allows her to be herself in all situations"

Jennifer Lawrence is a star who knows what she wants.

In the new issue of French magazine Madame Figaro, the 24-year-old star of the Hunger Games series says the man for her is “one who allows her to be herself in all situations.”

Lawrence, who has been linked to singer Chris Martin, added, “Otherwise, you might as well stay single.”

The Oscar winner is currently overseas on a press tour for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, out Nov. 21, but says interest in her personal life is something she has been very reluctant to accept.

Admitting it took her three days to say yes to the role of Katniss Everdeen when it was first offered to her, she says, “I realized that whatever I do, at any level, I would lose a part of my private life.”

“For each ‘everyday’ photo published, I generally spent three hours playing cat and mouse with photographers,” the star explains.

So what about Twitter, Facebook and other social media?

“All that doesn’t interest me for a second!” she says. “I’m always hundreds of emails behind.”

“I always had a very clear idea of the type of course I wanted – acting, that’s all,” she adds. “Of course, by contract, I must assure a media presence to promote my work.

“But if I had a choice, you you wouldn’t hear me express myself except in movies.”
