Jennifer Lawrence might be the “most desirable woman” in Hollywood, but the actress credits junk food and “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” for her incredible physique.

Jennifer Lawrence is opening up about her body image, homebody attitude and introspective New Year’s resolution.

The 22-year-old Golden Globe-nominated actress, having already conquered the United States with her absolute awesomeness, covers January’s issue of Marie Claire South Africa.

Recently she’s been voted 2013′s most desirable woman, beating out Mila Kunis, Kate Upton, Rihanna and Emma Stone.

The 22-year-old star of the movie “Silver Linings Playbook” takes no prisoners with her sexy outfit:  a hot platinum silver dress with just the right amount of strategically-placed cutouts, choppy bangs and some seriously smoldering eye makeup, the Huff Post reports.

Unfortunately, for het fans she’s not showing off too much, as there is a white bikini (or undies) under the dress.

In the past she has already covered such magazines as Vogue UK and W.

In the new issue of the magazine the “Hunger Games” star admits she’s a couch potato, saying she’d much rather lounge all day than head to the gym or go out partying with friends.

And don’t look for this talented starlet to be in the tabloids for party-girl shenanigans any time soon.

Lawrence said she much prefers to be home than out on the scene.

Lawrence told Marie Claire South Africa of her social life: “I don’t like going out that much. I’m kind of an old lady.”

She added: “After it’s 11, I’m like, ‘Don’t these kids ever get tired?’ When I’m out, I think about my couch. Like, ‘It would be awesome to be on it right now. I bet there’s an episode of ‘Dance Moms’ on. Am I missing a new episode of ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians?’ “I’m just stressed by the idea of missing them.”

Jennifer, who lives in a two-bedroom apartment in L.A., prefers to entertain friends at home. “I like people to come over to my place,” she says. “It’s like a reality TV show cave. I just learned how to work TiVO. That changed my life. Reality TV is my silver lining. At the end of the day there’s probably nothing that makes me feel better than junk food and reality TV.”

Attending A-list events, Lawrence says, is more stressful than it looks. “They are not fun,” the Hunger Games star tells Marie Claire South Africa. “I’m really bad at walking in heels. I’m more of a flats girl and I don’t like people shouting at me, and that’s pretty much all it is. Just screaming.”

As for body image issues that tend to plague those in the industry, the Hunger Games hottie said she hasn’t been affected, saying, “I’d rather look chubby on screen and like a person in real life.”

“My New Year’s Resolution is to stand up for myself,” Lawrence said. “It’s hard for me. Nobody wants to be disliked. You always want to be polite and be nice. I tried to find a balance in saying what I mean and still being nice. I can’t do it. I have this ‘okay’ attitude and everything. I end up allowing myself to get walked over and resenting it.”
