Celebrity Property News: Jennifer Lawrence defends house… with bow and arrow


Jennifer Lawrence won the Best Actress award at the Golden Globes last night.

The lead heroine of Silver Linings Playbook accepted the gong at the star-studded ceremony in Los Angeles last night in typically humble fashion – but it turns out her home security system is equally award-worthy. Recently, she almost shot an intruder with a bow and arrow.

Before her Golden Globe-winning performance, Lawrence shot to worldwide fame as Katniss Everdeen in the first film adaptation of the popular novel series The Hunger Games. Katniss, no slouch with a bow and arrow herself, has obviously seen her hunting skills rub off on the 22 year old actress.

Speaking to Vanity Fair , she explains:

"One time I actually used it for defense. I pulled into my garage and I heard men in my house. And I was like, ‘I'm not letting them take my stuff.'"

"I had just gotten back from training," she explained, "so I had the bow and arrows in the back of my car. I went to my car and I put this quiver on me and I had my bow and I loaded it and I'm walking up the stairs.

"And I look, and my patio doors were open, and there were guys working right there, and I was like, ‘Heyyy, how you doin'?'""

Her friends joked about it afterwards, telling her: "We've got to stage someone to break into your house and you can kill them!' That would be the funniest news ever. Katniss Everdeen actually kills someone with a bow and arrow!"

The actress famously still lives in her parents' condo in LA, despite being paid millions of dollars.

When asked by Elle about splashing out on a piece of real estate in December, she replied : "I've always lived in a tiny rat-infested apartment in New York, or a little condo in L.A., or a normal house in Kentucky. I think it would be very bizarre to live in a big mansion by myself."
