J.Law revealed that she didn’t alway know she wanted to act, but just thought she was an overly emotional kid.

She said of her adolescence:

“I was weird and different, and I knew I was smart but the evidence just didn’t agree…I would think something and then feel it. And now I know what that is, now I can channel that at work. You don’t know why someone’s telling a story and you’re sobbing, it just makes you look like you’re trying to get all the attention.”

Now, the Oscar winner has ALL the attention — but it didn’t happen overnight!

The 25-year-old talked about being frustrated in her early years in the biz and crying when she wasn’t getting roles.

But now, she’s busy writing a movie with bestie Amy Schumer, a friendship where both stars are “protective over each other!”
