Kicking off with her Oscar nom for "American Hustle," 2014 featured incredible peaks and shocking lows for Hollywood actress, Jennifer Lawrence.

She graced the silver screen as both kick-ass chicks Katniss Everdeen and X-Men's Mystique, but also saw the seedy public release of stolen nude photos.

Is new-found super fame going to send the starlet into a downward spiral, or will she stay as strong as her on-screen personas?

Lawrence has always exhibited a bubbly, zany personality. It's part of her red carpet charm to say witty, silly things to reporters and face palm Emma Watson.

She trips over traffic cones while getting out of limos, and staircases while getting an Academy Award.

She's adorable and beautiful and glamorous and you either want to be her or be with her, yet she admitted to Marie Claire that fame is beginning to take it's toll.

"I mean, I'm from Kentucky.

I used to be very personable and make eye contact and smile at people, and now all I do is look down," Lawrence said.

"When I'm at dinner and one person after another keeps interrupting to take pictures, it's like, 'I can't live like this.'"

Since the effects of fame aren't going to change any time soon, Lawrence's attitude, lifestyle and mentality take the brunt of it.

She's admitted to high levels of anxiety, and not necessarily being prepared for what the spotlight had in store.

"I didn't know that I would feel anxiety every time I open my front door, or that being chased by 10 men you don't know, or being surrounded, feels invasive and makes me feel scared and gets my adrenaline going every day," Lawrence said in an interview, Business Insider reports.

She's so deeply affected by the constant pressure of paparazzi outside her window, that she's even calling for reform of how people of celebrity status are treated.

"If these laws are going to be in place to protect the press and to protect the paparazzi and to protect the news, then new measures need to be made, because this is an entirely new phenomenon," she said.

"Nobody wants to help us because it seems like, you know, 'Shut up, millionaires!'"

Her public statements are worrying, as she's not the only one to feel ceaseless pressure from being constantly in the public eye. Each celebrity train wreck was affected differently, and had a fitting meltdown in accordance to their state of fame.

In 2007, Britney Spears had her notorious breakdown, involving her shaving her own head, driving with her young son on her lap, and bouts of rehab.

She's since stabilized as the Britney we all know and love, but it wasn't an easy road to recovery.

Lindsey Lohan is another example of how fame can change a person. Lohan is probably the most tragic celebrity train wreck to date.

A young actress with tremendous amount of potential who fell to the devious sways of a lavish lifestyle, and can now hardly retain a Lifetime Channel movie gig.

In recent months, Lohan has exhibited a slow climb back to stability, though you know it's bad when Oprah has to tell you to cut the bull.

While Lawrence is only on the up-and-up, she's admitted to feeling "like a zoo animal" in her state of fame. Few things exemplify this more than the public release of her stolen nude pictures.

"I was just so afraid. I didn't know how this was going to affect my career," Lawrence told Vanity Fair in her first official response after the racy pictures leaked.

She addressed the incident not as a scandal, but as a sex crime. "Just because I'm a public figure, just because I'm an actress, does not mean that I asked for this."

She talked about the embarrassment, sadness and rage she felt in the aftermath, and how she thought about issuing an apology before realizing she wasn't sorry for anything.

"I was in a loving, healthy, great relationship for four years," she said. "It was long distance, and either your boyfriend is going to look at porn or he's going to look at you."

Lawrence, along with anyone of celebrity status, have minimal social rights to privacy. "I am just not OK with it," she told People Magazine about fame.

"It's as simple as that. I am just a normal girl and a human being, and I haven't been in this long enough to feel like this is my new normal. I'm not going to find peace with it."

In 2015, Lawrence is pegged to premiere in the final installment of "The Hunger Games" franchise, as well as a reprise as Mystique in "X-Men: Apocalypse." These performances will no doubt catapult her into the blinding limelight during press appearances and film premieres.

Fame will only continue to grow for the supremely talented, 23-year-old Oscar winner, though she admits she is biding her time for the next franchise to take off and for the spotlight to shift to someone else.

Let's hope she can wait it out.
