interview

Jennifer Lawrence from The Hunger Games TELL US A LITTLE ABOUT KATNISS IN THE HUNGER GAMES. She is a young girl who goes into The Hunger Games. It’s set in a futuristic world where children aged between 12 and 18 are randomly selected from their home districts to fight to the death in a televised show, called The Hunger Games. When we meet Katniss she is just a hunter, taking care of her family and she is perfectly happy in her life. Times are hard and she is not wealthy by any means, but once she enters The Hunger Games she has to become a warrior, a warrior turned into someone like Joan of Arc, this symbol of freedom. DO YOU HAVE ANY OF KATNISS’S QUALITIES? No, I’m not rebellious at all. I was the opposite. I have huge anxiety about getting in trouble and I always have had. I never stepped out of line when I was living at home. I never drank alcohol. I was terrified of getting in trouble. But I normally play characters that are not necessarily like that.

THIS MUST BE THE MOST ACTION-PACKED FILM YOU’VE EVER DONE? Oh yeah, and the action was an absolute blast. Definitely, it was the most physical movie I have ever done. I had to learn archery, free running and stunts, rock climbing, harness work, combat. YOUR MUM INTRODUCED YOU TO WINTER’S BONE; DID SHE DO THE SAME WITH THE HUNGER GAMES NOVELS? Yeah, with Winter’s Bone she just told me to read this book, which she had talked about. My mum’s in a book club and I am a reader too and she had read The TM & © 2012 Lions Gate Entertainment Inc. All Rights Reserved.

ennifer Lawrence grew up in Louisville, Kentucky, and earned strong notices for her 2008 independent film The Burning Plain, which earned her a Best Emerging Actress Award at the Venice Film Festival. In 2011, she earned an Oscar nomination for the hard-hitting indie film, Winter’s Bone, while she took her first steps into the blockbuster world last year with Matthew Vaughn’s X-Men: First Class, playing the gorgeous but deadly shape-changer Mystique. Other film roles include Garden Party, Devil You Know, The Beaver and Like Crazy. In The Hunger Games, an adaptation of the first book in the best-selling trilogy by author Suzanne Collins, Lawrence plays the lead character, Katniss Everdeen.

Hunger Games books and loved them and handed them over to me. I first read the book before I knew about the movies and what I loved about the whole thing was that this is not only a modern day Joan of Arc story, but a futuristic Joan of Arc as well. WERE THE AUDITIONS TERRIFYING? No. I have never been disappointed about not getting anything. Early on in my career I was auditioning in New York and LA for what was out there and decided that whatever is meant to be is going to happen. When I auditioned for Twilight I had no idea what they were and when the movies came out I was like, “Wow!” DID YOU GET ANY INJURIES? Josh can tell you about his injury. I actually gave him a concussion. I cried and he had to console me! We both did stunt training for the movie and we were pretending to do Muay Thai, but I took it a little too far. It was a perfect death-kick, a kind of roundhouse, straight to the temple. I meant to stop right before the temple but he moved his head – it was his fault, really (laughs) – and my foot connected right on his temple. I could not stop crying. He said: “I’m fine, I’m fine.” But I cried for like three hours. WERE YOU AT ALL INTIMIDATED BY THE INTENSE FAN SCRUTINY? No, I wasn’t intimidated. Getting nervous about the anticipation is like Googling yourself. You can’t go there and think about it. It will only do bad things. I just knew I would give absolutely everything I had and try my hardest.
