Jennifer Lawrence said she's got one big fear about sex

Jennifer Lawrence said she's got one big fear about sex

Jennifer Lawrence said she's got one major fear about sex in one of her typically candid interviews.

The Hollywood star married gallerist Cooke Maroney in 2019, and the pair went on to welcome a son named Cy into the world earlier this year.

But at the time of the interview, the Hunger Games actress said her sex life wasn't as active as the world thinks it is.

While promoting her film Red Sparrow in 2018, she told The Sun: "I always talk like I want d**k, but the truth is when I look back at my sexual past it was always with boyfriends.

"I talk like I like it, but I don’t really do it."

And there's one major fear that she pointed out when it comes down to doing the do.

"I am mostly also a germaphobe," she said. "I have made it this far without an STI."

Lawrence then added: "D**k is dangerous.

"If I was at the point where I could get an STI, doctors have already been involved. That is how much of a germaphobe I am."

To be fair, it's a reasonable thing to be cautious of. According to the CDC, one in five people in the US had an STI as of 2018, with nearly 68 million infections.

As we all know, practising safe sex with any partner is of utmost importance – even if you have enough money in the bank to pay for the world's top healthcare.

Elsewhere in the interview, the 32-year-old said: "I am not in a relationship. I am making it clear that I have not had sex in a very long time.

"I would like to have a relationship, you know – it’s hard out there!"

Little did she realise she'd marry her husband-to-be in just over 18 months.

Earlier this year, Lawrence opened up about her frustration at being paid $5 million (£4.4 million) less than her Don't Look Up co-star Leonardo DiCaprio.

She spoke candidly about the gender pay gap, noting that while top Hollywood actors are already particularly overpaid, the discrepancy is part of a wider issue.

Jen and Leo were the top names in Adam McKay's comedy film, starring as two scientists who try desperately to warn the world of an approaching comet that's set to wipe out all of humanity.

According to a Variety report on actors' salaries, Lawrence earned $25 million (£21.8 million) for the Netflix film, while DiCaprio made $30 million (£26.1 million), even though Lawrence was the top-billed actor.

In a recent interview with Vogue for its October 2022 issue, Lawrence admitted that the pay gap was 'bothersome'.

She said: "It doesn’t matter how much I do. I’m still not going to get paid as much as that guy, because of my vagina?"
