We found out the duo were abroad for a press conference and fan event. At the press conference Jennifer and Liam spoke about The Hunger Games, their careers and more:
Also thanks to HungerTimes.com, we have more transcript of the press photocall:
“I think I’m a very lucky man: there are millions of guys looking for an opportunity like this one and I was the one to get it,” said Liam Hemsworth at the press conference. “I think every actor wants to do interesting roles, roles that transcend, and this movie lives up to those expectations.” Hemsworth revealed he had to go to intensive work-out routines and a special diet to look like a ‘hungry person’.
Jennifer Lawrence commented to the media how grateful she is for the opportunity she had early in her career to work with Mexican director Guillermo Arriaga in the movie The Burning Plan. “I love him, he taught me a lot of things. He’s a very intelligent man and one of the most influential people in my career. I can tell you he’s in a very special part of my heart.”
Once again, the actors addressed the Twilight comparisons that are now common in the media, “There are similarities, but they are very different stories. I think The Hunger Games has more real elements. It’s very easy to compare them because both are movies with young actors, and are movies part of a saga, but their storys are very different,” said Jennifer.
On being about to get exposed to a huge audience thanks to the movies, Lawrence said: “I know who I am and I don’t like to be like the people who appear in TV or some kind of magazine; and I work hard to avoid being like that.” Liam agreed with her and stated that it’s his great, united family what helps him stay down-to-earth, because the entertainment industry is a very unstable business.
