Actress Jennifer Lawrence says she used to be “very religious," but now, “I don’t believe in anything.”

The Oscar-winning actress made the declaration in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, responding to a question about whether she was religious or spiritual:

“Neither. I guess I am spiritual. I'm not religious. I grew up very religious. I have a religious family, but I don't believe in anything.”

Lawrence then said she actually does believe in an unknown, non-male “something”:

“I wouldn't call myself an atheist. I just believe in that thing, that something, whatever it is, that I do believe in. I don't think it identifies as a man. To argue over what it is ridiculous because none of us have the answer.”

Lawrence says that, while she still prays occasionally, she’s “not praying to anybody specific”:

“I pray, it's just I'm not praying to anybody specific. I grew up praying every night before bed, so I still sometimes do that, and it's a good checking-in time.”

Once, however, in a matter of life-or-death, Lawrence says she found herself praying to “God”:

“But I was in a plane that had double-engine failure, and I was praying to God.

"Whether I believe in Him or not! I was like, 'I don't know if you're out there, but if you are, please, please [save] the airplane.'"
