Jennifer Lawrence talks HUNGER GAMES and TWILIGHT
Jennifer Lawrence seems to be living the good life these days, with an Oscar nomination for Winter’s Bone on her resume and a legion of fan boys in her corner after shedding clothes and putting on blue latex for the role of Mystique in X-Men: First Class. Now, the 21-year-old actress is getting ready to really set the world on fire in The Hunger Games, which might have potential to rival the Twilight saga in terms of world domination.
Lawrence is currently working on her next film, The Silver Linings Playbook, but she found some time in her busy schedule to talk with Vanity Fair about the upcoming adaptation of Suzanne Collins’ dystopian novel, The Hunger Games.
Even before she knew she’d be auditioning for the movie, Lawrence was a Hunger Games fan that had already read the books, and her early connection with the character of Katniss Everdeen gave her the courage to put her foot down with director Gary Ross and tell him how her interpretation of Katniss would be.
“When I auditioned,” Lawrence says, “I told [director] Gary [Ross], ‘I understand if you don’t hire me, but please remember that after Katniss shoots a bow and kills someone, her face cannot be badass.’ So there’s nothing cool about her. It’s not like she looks around the arena and goes, Yeah, I got this. I think she looks around helplessly, and thinks, I made a promise to my sister that I would survive; now I have to kill in order to do so.”
Whether this view is something other Hunger Games fans will relate to is something that will be learned when the movie hits the big screen, but I think Lawrence made a good call with her decision.
Of course, the big question on everyone’s mind is how big will The Hunger Games become? All the studios are looking for the next Twilight since that series is getting ready to wind down and many are saying the adventures of Katniss Everdeen have what it takes to fill the void. However, Lawrence doesn’t want to be too hasty in making such a comparison, saying, “Hunger Games is not Twilight,” and that it would be “really premature to say that it will be the same phenomenon.”
What do you think? Will The Hunger Games follow in the footsteps of the Twilight saga and become the next phenomenon that takes the world by storm?
