When it comes to fears and phobias, the following are to be expected: an irrational terror of spiders, crippling anxiety that zombies are real, and—of course—nightmares about a reality television star becoming president (oh wait). What's *not* common is the fear that your vagina will morph into a sponge—but apparently that's precisely what keeps Jennifer Lawrence up at night.

When asked about her biggest fear in a recent interview, the Oscar-winning actress said the following gem:

"My biggest irrational, hopefully, fear is that the Zika virus is going to be the solution to overpopulation. I don't know if you've ever read the Kurt Vonnegut short story where everyone has to take these pills that make your private parts feel like wet sponges, and then nobody can have sex and no one can procreate. And so by the time I'm older, and I'm like, 'I think I want to be a mother,' they're like, 'You can't. Your private part feels like a sponge.'"
