LOS ANGELES, May 9 (UPI) -- America has fleeting relationships with even its most beloved celebrities, something Jennifer Lawrence knows all too well.

"Nobody can stay beloved forever," the Marie Claire cover girl says in the magazine's June issue.

"I never believed it, the whole time," Lawrence says of her rise to fame, when hilarious red-carpet antics and forthright responses to interview questions made her everyone's imaginary BFF.

Now 23, the Oscar winner says she knows a backlash was inevitable.

"I was like, just wait: People are going to get sick of me," Lawrence says. "My picture is everywhere, my interviews are everywhere; I'm way too annoying because I get on red carpets and I'm really hyper, and I can't not photo-bomb somebody if it's a good opportunity. But it's something I always tell myself: 'You need to calm the f*** down. You don't want to constantly be a GIF.'"

Jared Leto summed it up, telling Access Hollywood after this year's Oscars ceremony that he wondered if Lawrence's clumsiness was "a bit of an act."

"If I were Jared Leto, I would completely agree," Lawrence adds. "But trust me, if I was going to plan it, I would have done it at the Golden Globes or the SAGs. I would have never done it at two Oscars in a row. I watch Homeland -- I'm craftier than that!"

"Honestly, I'm just doing my best. If people want to start the backlash, I'm the captain of that team. As much as you hate me, I'm 10 steps ahead of you," she says.

Lawrence, soon to hit the big screen again in X-Men: Days of Future Past, also discusses her relationship with boyfriend and co-star Nicholas Hoult.

"Looks can go pretty far," she says. "Nobody can deny a beautiful face. Fortunately, I have one," she says, but clarifies, "Oh, no! I mean my boyfriend! I didn't mean my face! Oh, my God! I meant I'm with somebody who has a beautiful face."
