London: Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence admits she is having great difficulty adjusting to her sudden fame.

The 23-year-old actress, who won the Academy award for her role in 'Silver Linings Playbook', said she is struggling to come to terms with her real life, reported Sun online.

"I'm just really starting to feel like a monkey in a zoo. I'm kind of going through a meltdown about it lately... All of a sudden the entire world feels entitled to know everything about me, including what I'm doing on my weekends when I'm spending time with my nephew. And I don't have the right to say, 'I'm with my family'," she said.

"I always had a very normal idea of what I wanted: I was going to be a mom and I was going to be a doctor and I was going to live in Kentucky."

Despite her issues with fame, Lawrence always knew that she will be famous one day.

"But I always knew that I was going to be famous. I honest to God don't know how else to describe it. I used to lie in bed and wonder, Am I going to be a local TV person? Am I going to a motivational speaker? It wasn't a vision. But as it's kind of happening, you have this buried understanding: Of course," she added.
