Jennifer Lawrence always ends up "drunk and disappointed" on New Year's Eve.

The 'Hunger Games' star admits she "really hates" the annual celebration because she has never had a decent one yet.

She said: "I really hate it. I've never had a good one - everyone's chasing a good time and it's always a disappointment. I plan on doing nothing and then if something lands in my lap ... but I always end up drunk and disappointed. Drunk and Disappointed should be the title of my memoir!"

The 25-year-old beauty also admitted she tends to vomit when she gets "stressed and exhausted" and recalled a particular situation when she ended up throwing up in front of a group of paparazzi.

Speaking on The Graham Norton Show, she admitted: "I am a puker. When I get stressed and exhausted I just vomit. I was driving with my publicist the other day and had to roll down the window and I puked all down the side of the car. It was in front of all the paparazzi - I painted New York!" 

The Graham Norton Show's New Year's Eve special airs on December 31 on BBC One at 10.45pm.

In addition, Lawrence also blasted Hollywood for focusing on physical appearance, insisting that people should not be focused on the weight or size of an actor or actress but rather on their talent.

She said: "I hate all the focus on weight and size that you have in our business. I don't think an actress needs to be skinny to be attractive and it sends the wrong message to young women.

"It's important that, as actresses, we need to establish ourselves first and foremost for our talent and not for our physical appearance."

The 25-year-old actress also opened up about her criticisms of the gender pay gap in the movie industry, insisting that feels very "lucky" to have a job she loves and only made her comments out of "principle".

She told Grazia magazine: "I'm aware that movie stars earn too much money in relation to the rest of the world. But it's the principle that is important.

"I can't stand a lack of fairness. This has nothing to do with ingratitude - I love my job and I know how lucky I am to be able to live off my art."
