Jennifer Lawrence won the Oscar for Best Actress this year, but the “Hunger Games: Catching Fire” star says her parents now have custody of the coveted gold statue.

“My parents took it back to Kentucky, ‘cause I felt odd having it, like, on display in my house,” the 22-year-old star — who won the Academy Award for her performance in “Silver Linings Playbook” — told Access Hollywood’s Scott Mantz at Comic-Con 2013 in San Diego, Calif., on Saturday.

“If anybody’s coming over to my house, I didn’t want them to remember that. Just kind of puts a weird energy out,” she explained.

The actress initially tried placing the prestigious award in an inconspicuous place, before surrendering it the care to her parents.

“I put it in the hallway towards the bathroom, and my mom was like, ‘I’m taking it. It shouldn’t be here.’ And now it’s on a piano in Kentucky!”

Jennifer also dished on the advice she recently gave fellow young star Shailene Woodley, who was nervous about how her life would change if she took on the role of Beatrice “Tris” Prior in the upcoming film, “Divergent.”

“She asked, basically, ‘If you had the opportunity to do this again, would you? Because it’s scary. It’s life changing,’” Jennifer, who had her own doubts about signing on to play Katniss Everdeen in “The Hunger Games” movies, shared. “And I said, ‘Yes. As many things change, as many things are horrible and scary, it’s worth it if you love the movie,’ which she did.”
