Julia Roberts thinks Jennifer Lawrence is 'too cool'

JULIA Roberts thinks Jennifer Lawrence is "too cool" to be America's sweetheart.

The 'August: Osage County' star is a huge fan of 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' beauty but believes the young actress is too edgy to hold the unofficial title.

The 46-year-old Oscar-winning actress told MTV News: "How many are there of us? She shoots flaming arrows. Is this a new cupid tactic?"

She added: "My card is expired and I didn't get a new one. I think she's fabulous, but she seems cooler than me. Isn't she too cool to be (America's sweetheart)?"

Julia previously admitted she always hated being put on a pedestal and being heralded as the most popular actress in Hollywood.

She recently said: "People should understand that there is nothing tremendously unique about me. I have this tremendously unique job, but we are looking for the same thing, which is to be understood, honoured and loved. I hate the pedestal feeling, the fake heralding."

The 'Erin Brockovich' star has moved away from the spotlight since starting a family - including eight-year-old twins Hazel and Phinnaeus and six-year-old son Henry - with husband Danny Moder, and she revealed that she no longer recognises her old self and prefers to spend most of her time with her family.

She said: "Danny and I do not work at the same time, so I'm able to be really devoted to my home life, then when a job comes up that really attracts my attention, I commit to that."
