We caught up with the 21-year-old to chat about the Games, and she explained how she became involved with the movie adaptation:
“My mom has a terrible habit of reading books, telling me to read them and then me doing the movie – she did the same with Winter’s Bone.”
“I always got asked why I did indies, not studio films, and I said it was about the script, it’s not about how big it is, and she was like, ‘This is a script you love, a character you love, and you’re about to turn it down because of the size of it? You’re a hypocrite!’”
Lawrence confirmed: “There’s blood, death, stabbing, spears and arrows going into people, but you can have the impact of violence without being gory.”
