Our MockingjayJennifer Lawrence, who plays we all know Katniss Everdeen, is gracing the cover of this months W Magazine. In the interview she talks about Silver Linings, X-Men and The Hunger Games! Check out an excerpt below!
As soon as you got the part of Katniss, you began training. I read somewhere that you are so good with a bow and arrow that you could compete in archery at the Olympics.
I do love archery. I could kill someone with a bow and arrow if they’d hold still! With Hunger Games, I got really nervous about signing on to that huge franchise. I was afraid that Katniss would overwhelm any other character I’d try to do. But I love Katniss, and she didn’t take over as much of my life as I thought she would.
You play a rather crazy widow in Silver Linings. Technically, you are too young to play that character. Did you have to audition?
I did. But I didn’t mind. People always worry that I’m wrong for the part: I’m usually too young—or, in the case of Katniss, they thought I was too old. I was blonde, and Katniss is brunette. So many problems. There were a lot of things that we just brushed under the rug.
We’ve already shown you Jennifer Lawrence‘s cover and photo shoot from her American cover on Rolling Stone Magazine this past April. Well this May Jen graces the covers of Rolling Stone Spain, and while the photos inside the magazine are the same as those published in April, the cover is brand new! Looking good!
Alexander Ludwig can be seen on the cover of the April/May issue of Da Man magazine. Just Jared has a preview of the cover story.
On bulking up to play Cato in The Hunger Games: “I gained almost 40 pounds of muscle for this role. I’m currently working on getting back to how I was before Cato. As an actor, I feel that it’s important to make a physical commitment to create a character and it’s also important for me to return to my normal self.”
On his music career: “Check out my new song ‘Liv It Up’ currently available on iTunes! I’ve always been very passionate about music and am currently working on creating an album. [My favorite musicians are] Red Hot Chili Peppers, Eminem, a variety of country artists including Rodney Atkins.”
On making films: “My parents know how passionate I’ve always been about acting. I convinced them this was something that I was going to put my heart and soul into. They encourage me 100 percent. I couldn’t do it without their support.”
You can see a ton of pics from the photo spread at Just Jared.
The Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence really is the Girl on Fire. Our Katniss Everdeen graces another magazine cover this month, and this time it’s on Rolling Stone’s April issue.
Here is one of our favorite parts of the interview, about Jennifer’s ability to make a great impression on co-stars Woody Harrelson and Josh Hutcherson!
Lawrence, 21, has a way of making a first impression. Woody Harrelson, her Hunger Games co-star, still remembers their first meeting. “I was on my bus,” he says, “and on my bus I have a yoga swing. Jennifer comes on, and she goes, ‘Hi, Woody, I’m J— is that a sex swing?’ Her first sentence to me.”
Josh Hutcherson, also from The Hunger Games: “When I got cast, she called me up for one of those five-minute ‘Excited to work with you, blah, blah, blah’ things. The conversation started with her saying, ‘Think about a catheter going in – ouch!’ and then turns into a 45-minute rant about zombies and the apocalypse.”
And below is a video of Jennifer’s photo shoot with Rolling Stone.
Entertainment Weekly is coming out with yet another Hunger Games cover, this one is showing off their Katniss Fever!
Even the folks who were banking on The Hunger Games being a success were shocked by how many fans and not-yet-fans alike crammed into multiplex seats to watch Katniss fight for her life. “This has exploded beyond anything we could have imagined,” says director Gary Ross. “There are days where it feels like we’re in the middle of some national media event that has nothing to do with entertainment. We keep looking around trying to figure out how this could have actually happened.” Lionsgate is aiming to release the sequel, Catching Fire, around Thanksgiving 2013, but everyone will be returning to work much sooner. “It’s fantastic to finally have the movie out in the world and to see all of these people who love it,” says producer Nina Jacobson, who first picked up the rights to Collins’ novel back in 2009, “but at the end of the day we’ll roll up our sleeves and it’s on to the next one.”
The issue hits stands March 30th, or you can buy a copy here!
