Jennifer Lawrence is certainly the “IT” girl right now. She’s had huge success with Silver Linings Playbook and it won’t be that long before we see her back again, playing Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.
Collider has caught up with Jennife to chat with her about everything from starting out, wanting to one day direct a movie, being nominated for an Oscar and what it’s like heading back to film The Hunger Games sequel:
How do you feel about so many young women looking up to you now, since having taken that role?
LAWRENCE: It’s exciting! It’s really nice. And I’m so happy that I don’t have a secret life because that would be so stressful.
What was it like to revisit the character for the second film, Catching Fire?
LAWRENCE: If possible, there’s even less preparation because I was like, “I’ve done this before.” It was incredible because it was like going back to high school. We had a lot of the same crew, and obviously Josh [Hutcherson] and Liam [Hemsworth] were there. Normally, when I do a movie, I’m meeting people for the first time, so it was just amazing to be able to have the same group of people. It was so fun. And it’s a character that I love, and a story and message that I’m passionate about, so I haven’t managed to get bored. That’s a pretty hard character to get bored with, though.
