The Hunger Games Control Room Concept Art by Reid Southen
A few more photos from Entertainment Weekly have surfaced on Tumblr. Check out these images from what looks like the party at President Snow’s mansion and a scene with Prim and Mrs. Everdeen.
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.
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.
