Our Mockingjay Jennifer 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.
Entertainment Weekly has exclusive clip from the behind-the-scenes extras on The Hunger Games DVD/Blu-ray.
In this EW exclusive clip of a behind-the-scenes feature from the upcoming Blu-ray release ofThe Hunger Games, Lawrence discusses her fears about signing onto a popular franchise film, her advice from her mom, and why a good script is a good script, no matter the size of the movie.
While what Jennifer talks about isn’t anything new, the video shows behind-the-scenes clips of a number of scenes, including the Tribute interviews, the Everdeen’s house, the Tribute parade, and more.
The video isn’t embeddable, so head over to EW.com to watch it.
We feel like it’s been awhile since we heard Jennifer Lawrence talk about The Hunger Games, so we’re excited about this new (albeit brief) interview with the actress from the Los Angeles Times’ 24 Frames blog.
“The new movie will be very real, which is what I’m excited about,” she told 24 Frames of “Catching Fire,” which Francis Lawrence will direct. “I really like his take, which is a lot of what I liked in Gary Ross,” she added. “It’s the realistic grasp of the story instead of all the details of the imaginary things.”
Lawrence said she’s met with the director and believes that, overall, he’s trying to continue what Ross started with his adaptation of the first book in the Suzanne Collins’ series. “He’s not trying to reinvent anything,” she said.
The Hunger Games has been nominated in five categories for the UK’s Total Film Hotlist 2012
The list includes:
Jennifer Lawrence – Hottest Actress
Farewell Rue – Hottest Scene
Liam Hemsworth – Hottest Newcomer – Male
Catching Fire – Hottest Book
The Hunger Games – Hottest Film
The future’s bleak in this gripping adaptation of Suzanne Collins’ popular young adult page-turner.
Perfectly cast as feisty 16-year-old Katniss Everdeen, Jennifer Lawrence plays a blinder, bringing just the right amount of sensitivity and severity to a tricky, multi-faceted role. She really comes into her own when Katniss is selected to participate in the annual Hunger Games, where it’s kill or be killed for entertainment’s sake.
Delivering a breakneck actioner as colourful as it is caustic, director Gary Ross doesn’t shy away from the novel’s barbed social commentary.
