Jennifer Lawrence: Why She Quit Surfing

Wednesday, February 20, 2013

JENNIFER Lawrence says a bang on the head forced her to stop surfing.

The actress used to relax by taking to the waves, but it stopped being fun after she had an accident in the water.

“I used to love surfing, then I got hit in the head with my board, got concussion, and couldn’t remember my phone number,” she said.

“I like yoga and I like going out, but every time I do, I’m always thinking about my couch.

“I’m a complete gym-o-phobe. People who are like ‘OMIGOD I can’t wait to get to the gym’ drive me nuts. I am always happier when I’m in shape, but I like to take my exercise outdoors.

“I won’t actually say that running uphill when you’re out of breath is fun, but I do feel better afterwards.”
