Jennifer Lawrence Cheerleads and Explains the Pay Gap Perfectly, All in the Same Charming Interview

She and Diane Sawyer also eat Kentucky barbecue without us.

I don't know which to be more jealous of: that Diane Sawyer got to spend a dream day eating barbecue with Jennifer Lawrence or that she got more than 10 minutes of primetime to tell the story of how she and Jennifer Lawrence ate barbecue.

In an interview for ABC, Sawyer and Jennifer "Lonely Every Saturday Night" Lawrence bond over their Kentucky upbringings (and smoked meats), play with bows and arrows in an art gallery, and talk about relevant topics such as the pay gap and her post-Hunger Games and Nicholas Hoult identity.

On her "habit of submissiveness" that prevented her doing the unlikable thing and demanding her share, which she has no problem doing now: "I felt like I had to say something because we need to talk about it. On average, women are paid 21 percent less than men. We can ask for the same exact thing that men do, and we do face the reality that we do get judged more. It's just something that's intrinsic. I would love to see change."

On the important stuff in her life ending simultaneously: "When I wrapped the Hunger Games, I wrapped—these movies have been my life for so long, and they had to come first in everything. I was also in a relationship with somebody for five years, and we broke up around the same time that I wrapped those movies. Being 24 was this whole year of, 'Who am I without these movies? Who am I without this man?'"

She also discusses marriage again, but this time, she's like, "Maybe I'll settle down, maybe not. Amy Schumer's enough."
