'Hunger Games' star Jennifer Lawrence talks fame, conformity, and having her own action figure
The lone man had been sitting in a chair in the corner of the room ever since I’d taken my place at the table, though I didn't really think much about it until Jennifer Lawrence, who stars as protagonist Katniss Everdeen in the soon-to-be-released adaptation of "The Hunger Games", entered the hotel suite. That’s when the man finally sprung into action, approaching the actress with a Katniss doll/action figure clutched in his hand.
“We understood that it was PG-13, so there were going to have to be some changes there,” she continued. “[But] I think it really worked in our favor…because violence in real life is quick. It’s over very quickly. Fights last a matter of seconds. If you get shot with an arrow, you’re down. You're dead. You get your neck cracked, you fall. You’re dead. We [weren’t able to show] gratuitous blood gurgling out of people's necks and everything, which I think made it a lot more realistic.”
"The Hunger Games" hits theaters on March 23.
