73 Questions With Jennifer Lawrence | Vogue
Dramatic skies unfold here in New York City and I have to say this is one of the more creative places to do an interview. So, jen, what made you answer 73
questions on a miniature golf course in Williamsburg? My husband took up golf and he felt like doing an outdoor activity so today I'm going to try to get really good at it so that I can do an outdoor activity too, seems logical and I heard that a storm is brewing. I was like let's go outside and that seems dangerously exciting so when was the last time you played mini golf never or so five years ago on a scale of one to ten how would you rate your ability one so you tell me that there is a higher than zero percent chance of a hole-in-one today No well, I hope I'm surprised now, Jen, with everything that's going on between the balance between your career and your personal life, what you happiest these days, uh, my family, and what you did for the first time recently, congratulations in ten years, what will you regret doing way too many interviews when you bring a person from history back to life and them today to the world, who would it be Chris Farley to be the first person to leave you, the Verizon Wireless guy that I was?

You're right. Los Angeles is better in many ways.
