Jennifer Lawrence doesn’t understand what the big deal is about being an A-list actress because she thinks the profession is "stupid".

The 22-year-old Oscar nominee loves what she does for a living, but doesn’t see why actors are worshiped because they aren’t saving lives. And she certainly doesn’t see reason for Hollywood stars to have such big egos.

“It’s stupid,” she tells Vanity Fair magazine.

“Everybody's like, 'How can you remain with a level head?' And I'm like, 'Why would I ever get cocky? I'm not saving anybody's life,” she explained.

The Hunger Games star said it’s doctors and firemen who were the real heroes. Their work was far more important.

“There are doctors who save lives and firemen who run into burning buildings. I'm making movies,” she argued.

Making movies was still a big dream for Jennifer as a little girl, but it’s no secret she hates when she's forced to promote her work on the red carpet.

“It's uncomfortable having to pose when people are shouting at you and the next day you just get slaughtered. You walk out there and go, ‘Hate me!’” she mused.

The actress is expected to be at dozens of A-list events this year.

She has several projects lined up through 2014, including The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and X Men: Days of Future Past.
