Jennifer Lawrence Talks About Playing Katniss In 'The Hunger Games' — 'I'm A Massive Fan!'

The super talented Oscar nominee gets glam for the pages of ‘Teen Vogue’ and talks about her already iconic film role!

She may have played tough and resilient in Winter’s Bone, and be preparing to do the same in The Hunger Games, but Jennifer Lawrence proves she is as glam as she is gutsy in her new spread for Teen Vogue! In the mag, the 20-year-old starlet talks about her newly won role in The Hunger Games, and how much respect she has for the book!

“The cool thing about Katniss is that every fan has such a personal relationship with her,” she explains. “I’m a massive fan too, so I get it. She’s incredibly powerful, brave, and tough—and yet she has a tenderness and complexity.”

As for her own life, Jennifer admits to being far more well behaved and low-key than some of the characters she has portrayed. “I didn’t sneak out or drink. Once I told my parents to ground me because I was going to a party with alcohol. It’s kind of disgusting.”

She is set to become one of the biggest stars in Hollywood and is a great role model to boot?! Let’s hope Jennifer stays around for a while!

Take a look at Jennifer’s photos above and let us know — are you excited to see Jennifer in The Hunger Games?
