Lawrence admits she never received a diploma or a GED -- and that at age 14, her career was more important to her than her friends.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Jennifer Lawrence says she dropped out of school at age 14 to pursue acting -- and she doesn't regret it.
According to a report from People magazine, the Louisville native made the comments during a soon-to-be-aired 60 Minutes interview.
Lawrence admits she never received a diploma or a GED, but she says the time she spent forging her acting career was well worth it.
"I wanted to forge my own path," Lawrence said. "I found what I wanted to do and I didn’t want anything getting in the way of it. Even friends, for many years, were not as important to me as my career from the age of 14."
