Jennifer Lawrence has no regrets about dropping out of school at 14, insisting the decision made her acting dreams real.

In an interview in an upcoming episode of 60 Minutes, the Red Sparrow actress opens up to Bill Whitaker about forging her own path of self-education after quitting formal school at a young age.

I can't believe people are truly making it a thing that JLaw didn't wear a coat over her dress... lemme tell u, we risk pneumonia for the LEWK.

Lawrence admits she never received a diploma or a GED, but she says the time she spent forging her acting career was well worth it. "And when I'm reading this script, and I feel like I know exactly what it would look like if somebody felt that way", she recalled to Whitaker.

Coming to cinemas is the espionage "thriller" Red Sparrow starring Jennifer Lawrence as a ballerina that is taught how to turn her body into a weapon for the glory of Russian Federation. And if I want to pose half naked in the cold, it is also MY CHOICE!- commented Lawrence.

"I found what I wanted to do and I didn't want anything getting in the way of it, ' she said. I don't really know where to get started on this 'Jennifer Lawrence wearing a revealing dress in the cold" controversy.

She became a superstar through the "Hunger Games" and "X-Men" film series. "And I didn't want to let it go".

As J.Law said herself, "Everything you see me wear is my choice".

The plot of Red Sparrow follows Dominika Egorova (Lawrence) an exceptional ballerina who during one night loses everything in a freak accident that ruins her career forever.

"It was just an overwhelming feeling of 'I get this". Two years later, she would land her breakthrough role in the 2010 film "Winter's Bone" and earn her first Oscar nomination at the age of 20.

Lawrence's full interview on 60 Minutes airs Sunday Feb. 25 at 7:00 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
