Fans have always loved Jennifer Lawrence's refreshing honesty, and the star didn't disappoint when she readily admitted that the prospect of motherhood has become less appealing with age.

When the 27-year-old Oscar-winning actress—who is currently promoting psychological thriller Mother!—was asked whether she was feeling "the pangs of motherhood," she replied to E!: "Not at all!
