Jennifer Lawrence landed on the A-list earlier than most. Oscar-nominated for “Winter’s Bone” at just 20 years old, the Kentucky-born actress won the role of Katniss Everdeen in “The Hunger Games,” meaning her meteoric rise should only increase, provided the film cashes in as expected the box office. It’s certainly an exciting time for J.Law, though — at the moment — she’s a little concerned with her awkward “karate hands,” which only come out when she runs. “I’m a weird runner,” Lawrence told Moviefone when asked about her training for the future blockbuster. “So, that was unfortunate.”
In “The Hunger Games,” Lawrence is forced to do a lot of running: she plays Katniss Everdeen, the District 12 tribute sent to compete in the annual Hunger Games, a barbaric event where the citizens of Panem, the post-apocalyptic name given to what’s left of North America, watch their children kill one another for sport. For fanatics of Suzanne Collins’s best-selling book series, the actress is Katniss incarnate (this despite her naturally blonde hair, which was dyed for the film). Lawrence, however, wasn’t so sure — she almost turned down the role of her lifetime, before her mother convinced her otherwise.
She loved the fact that the film was being made by those who are fans of the book. Liked what they said and knew she wanted to make this film. What I really like about Jennifer is that she has made independent films. She was asked about this once and why she had not done big studio films. This is what she had to say,”Because it’s not about the size of the movie, it’s about the script.”
Bravo Jennifer Lawrence, the girl with the look, in a upcoming film that is a sad movie, but once again it all about the magic of words on paper brought to the silver screen in a land where magic is real and dreams come true.by
