Elle's December 2012 issue features Jennifer Lawrence.

Jennifer Lawrence makes a sexy statement in a white Balenciaga dress on the cover of Elle US' December issue. She's currently filming the second instalment in the Hunger Games franchise, Catching Fire, and talked about how she prepares for the role of Katniss in the publication. First, though, Jennifer has Silver Linings Playbook coming out in Australia on Jan. 31. She has multiple other films in the works and shared that despite her success, she still stays grounded. Here's more from Jennifer Lawrence in Elle:

  • On dieting: "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 not living large: "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 LA, or a normal house in Kentucky. I think it would be very bizarre to live in a big mansion by myself."
  • On her boyfriend, Nicholas Hoult: "[My boyfriend] is honestly my best friend, and hopefully I'm his best friend too. He's my favourite 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."
