10 things we learned from the cast and crew of 'The Hunger Games'
Why was Elizabeth Banks feeling the heat? Who was brought to tears by Jennifer Lawrence?
Jennifer Lawrence gave herself 3 days to think before accepting the role of Katniss
While most actresses likely would have accepted the coveted part without another thought, Lawrence felt it was best to contemplate the ramifications of taking on such an enormously-popular franchise before making her final decision.
"It did give me pause, because it was scary," she said. "It was kind of a terrifying thing. ...It was really just something I had to work out with myself, and...the three days that I gave myself before I said yes was just thinking through every single - combing through every doubt. So that, when I was here and when people were taking my picture and people were screaming and following me or whatever is going to happen, I [would know] that I thought it through and I said yes without a doubt in my mind. And I signed on, and I haven't doubted or second guessed myself since."
