Give her flats and make her happy! Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence reveals why high heels don't make her feel beautiful at all

Jennifer Lawrence says she's an "ogre" in high heels. The 22-year-old star - who is five feet seven inches tall - said she is "uncomfortable" in the height-enhancing shoes, preferring more casual footwear.

She told Fabulous magazine: "When I'm in high heels I feel like an ogre, I can't walk and my feet are uncomfortable."

The Silver Linings Playbook Oscar winner revealed she feels "too dressed up" in heels, which add to her relatively tall frame.

She admitted: "I'm at that awkward height where I'm already kind of tall, so when I put heels on, everyone is like: 'Oh, well, where's the ball?' It's just that they make me look too dressed up and yeah, I'm terrible in heels."

Jennifer also recently compared her appearances at award ceremonies with a scared "chihuahua".

She said: "I'm afraid I'm going to go through my whole life being scared like a chihuahua. It's not my comfort zone. Making movies is where I belong. I shouldn't be heard just talking. So, when I'm doing movies, I'm really happy. That's where I'm comfortable, that's my home. When you put me on a red carpet or on a stage, I turn into chihuahua Jennifer."
