Jennifer Lawrence reveals what she thinks of the vicious games in ‘Vanity Fair’! Plus, how she snagged the role of Katniss!
Vanity Fair gives an inside look at the much-anticipated triology Hunger Games as we get closer to the March 23 premiere date!
Jennifer Lawrence, who plays Katniss, reveals the bloodbaths aren’t meant to be mean-hearted.
“These kids are killing one another only because if they don’t they’ll die. It’s heartbreaking,” Jennifer says.
She also admitted it took some convincing to land the desirable role.
“When I auditioned, I told [director] Gary [Ross], ‘I understand if you don’t hire me, but please remember that after Katniss shoots a bow and kills someone, her face cannot be badass,” Jennifer says. “So there’s nothing cool about her. It’s not like she looks around the arena and goes, ‘Yeah, I got this.’ I think she looks around helplessly, and thinks, ‘I made a promise to my sister that I would survive; now I have to kill in order to do so.’”
With the exciting plot and an amazing cast of characters — we can’t wait for the first part of the triology to hit theaters this spring!
