'I turn into a huge a**hole': Jennifer Lawrence admits she's 'incredibly rude' to fans... and reveals the issues Mother! caused between her and ex Darren Aronofsky

She's accrued millions of devoted fans thanks to her fun-loving persona in interviews.

But Jennifer Lawrence has admitted she is 'incredibly rude' and a 'huge a**hole' when she meets her followers in public, while also opening up on the problems the reaction to her movie Mother! caused with now ex-boyfriend Darren Aronofsky.

Chatting with Adam Sandler during the seventh season of Variety Studio: Actors On Actors, the Oscar-winning star, 27, revealed she consciously tries to 'defend' herself by being mean to her fans when they meet her.

'Once I enter a public place, I become incredibly rude. I turn into a huge a–hole,' she said. 'That's my only way of defending myself.'

Jennifer demonstrated the icy stare and finger-wagging combo she deploys whenever she sees someone approach her table at a restaurant, adding that whenever someone asks for a selfie she scoffs back: 'No!'

The actress insisted the situation is much tougher on comedians because everyone 'just assumes they're your best friend'.

She claimed whenever she was out with her friend Amy Schumer 'we're f*cked', while Sandler conceded that people frequently 'pull up a chair' when he's out eating.?

The pair, who are worth approximately $450million between them, then proceeded to joke about how they deal with 'those people'.

Sandler explained: 'They go, "Hey Adam, could I get a picture?" And I always say, "You don't want that, man.'?

'And the guy goes, "What?" And I go, "You don't want that. What are you going to do with it?" And then he's like, "Yeah, yeah. I don't".'

Jennifer's approach is to say: 'It's my day off, its Sunday. I'm not working today.'

Sandler joked that he will 'sit em down and feed em. I let em hang out with my kids.'

Elsewhere in the interview, Jennifer discussed some of the problems that cropped up between her and now ex-boyfriend Darren Aronofsky, who directed her in controversial horror movie Mother!

The couple's split became public last week, but they are believed to have parted ways around a month ago. ?

'We'd be on the tour together. I'd come back to the hotel, and the last thing I want to talk about or think about is a movie,' she recounted.?

'He comes back from the tour, and that's all he wants to talk about. I get it; it's his baby. He wrote it; he conceived it; he directed it.'?

'I was doing double duty trying to be supportive partner while also being like, "Can I please, for the love of God, not think about Mother! for one second?"

But she said he would start reading her the reviews of the critically-panned movie, something she no longer does because it's 'not healthy'.

'I'm not going to do it, because if I read it, I start getting defensive.' Especially because it's my man,' Jennifer said in the interview conducted prior to her split from the director.?

'I don't want to sound in an interview that I'm defending what we're doing in any way. It's awesome, what we did.?

'The people who hate it really hate it. But it's nothing that needs to be defended. If I read a negative review, I just feel defensive.'?

She also revealed that when she first read the controversial script, she threw it across the floor.?

'I didn't even want it in my house. I thought it was so f*cked up on such a deep level,' she said.?
