Jennifer Lawrence ‘Relieved’ She Didn’t Win Another Oscar: Pal Says J-Law Was Concerned About Enduring Backlash Anne Hathaway Suffered

Jennifer Lawrence 'Relieved' She Didn't Win Another Oscar

Nobody likes to lose, but ‘It Girl’ Jennifer Lawrence was relieved she didn’t win a second Academy Award on Sunday night for her role in American Hustle, a source exclusively tells RadarOnline.com, because the actress doesn’t want to end up with the same backlash pal Anne Hathaway endured as her star skyrocketed!

According to a pal close to the Hunger Games star, after her big win (and tumble!) last year at the Oscars, J-Law became so in demand that before the awards this year she expressed her hope that the loses so she could avoid over-exposure.

“Jennifer said she was so relieved she didn’t win because she didn’t want to go through what Anne Hathaway experienced,” the pal told Radar. “She’s very aware that the backlash is already coming anyway.”

“And it wasn’t in a mean way, she was sort of joking because her and Anne are actually friends,” the source added. “But she just knew that if she won the Oscar again it’d be like a target on her back.”

Jennifer “certainly wasn’t throwing shade, more so acknowledging the fact that it’s the new standard of backlash…what Anne went through,” the source told Radar.

“Jen was just so happy she didn’t have to do any of the press. She just wanted to drink and celebrate!”

But the friend tells Radar that in his opinion people were “over” Hathaway after she co-hosted the Academy Awards in 2011 and then won the Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role Oscar in 2013 for Les Miserables,.

“There’s such thing as over-exposure and her name is Anne Hathaway,” the insider told Radar.

As Radar reported earlier this year, Hathaway says she “took a beating” after her Oscar win, forcing her to take a break from movies and the public eye.

“All of the elements came together in that moment. I don’t want to bring up a sore subject or anything — I think my publicist is probably like, ‘No, no no’ — but I had just taken a little bit of a beating from the Internet,” she confessed.
