You can always count on Jennifer Lawrence to go completely off-script and into orbit when you ask her even the simplest question. Vanity Fair asked her what her worst irrational fear is. And yeah, it got weird.
She said, quote, “That the Zika virus is going to be the solution to overpopulation. I don’t know, if you’ve ever read the Kurt Vonnegut short story where everyone has to take these pills that make your private parts feel like wet sponges.
“And then nobody can have sex and no one can procreate. And so by the time I’m older, and I’m like, ‘I think I want to be a mother,’ they’re like, ‘You can’t. Your private part feels like a sponge.'”
It appears that the story she’s referring to is Welcome to the Monkey House.
Here’s video. It happens at 1:09, but the whole interview is fun and quirky and Jennifer Lawrence-y, if you’ve got a few minutes.
