So here she is. Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen in the upcoming The Hunger Games movie.
EW has unveiled the much-anticipated first look at Lawrence in costume. EW was also granted an exclusve interview with a newly brunette Lawrence and spent hours watching her train on a Los Angeles archery range and track, just days before she headed to North Carolina for filming.
In a free-wheeling interview, Lawrence describes her first encounter with Ross last winter, during the height of Oscar season. “He was asking me what the experience was like,” she recalls, “and I just kind of opened up and said, ‘I feel like a rag doll. I have hair and makeup people coming to my house every day and putting me in new, uncomfortable, weird dresses and expensive shoes, and I just shut down and raise my arms up for them to get the dress on, and pout my lips when they need to put the lipstick on.’ And we both started laughing because that’s exactly what it’s like for Katniss in the Capitol. She was a girl who’s all of a sudden being introduced to fame. I know what that feels like to have all this flurry around you and feel like ‘Oh, no, I don’t belong here.”
EW will be releasing more photos of Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss in the new issue of Entertainment Weekly. We’d love to know what you think. I think she looks great. While there might be many more actresses out there that look like Katniss, I think Jennifer is going to nail it!
