  • Jennifer Lawrence has responded to the controversy over the revealing dress she wore to a winter photo call

On Sunday's episode of 60 Minutes, the Oscar victor talks with Bill Whitaker about why she made a decision to drop out of middle school at 14 to pursue an acting career.

"I dropped out of middle school", confessed Lawrence in a CBS teaser.

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.

"Especially dealing with some of the content of the movie, she and I worked really closely together to make sure that worked well within the story and the themes and the character", Francis said, referencing the movie's nudity and violent content.

"I know exactly what it would look like if somebody felt that way. That was a whole part of my brain that I didn't even know existed", said the 27-year-old.

A LONDON photo call for the cast of new Jennifer Lawrence spy thriller Red Sparrow is getting a lot of attention - but not for the reason they'd hoped.

Most comments followed a similar theme, focusing on the comparison between J-Law's revealing outfit and her male co-stars' wrapped-up looks - that according to the Internet were much more weather-appropriate. "And I didn't want to let it go".

The plot of Red Sparrow follows Dominika Egorova (Lawrence) an exceptional ballerina who during one night loses everything in a freak accident that ruins her career forever.

The full 60 Minutes interview with Lawrence will air on Sunday, Feb. 25 at 7 p.m. "It's just an overwhelming feeling of, 'I get this". She has been doing two films a year since the age of 20 and was the youngest actress ever nominated for four Academy Awards.

Jennifer said creating controversy over "silly innocuous things" such as what she chooses to wear is "not moving us forward". She won the Best Actress Oscar for her role as Tiffany Maxwell in "Silver Linings Playbook".
