But listen, just because I said she was too beautiful for words doesn’t mean that I don’t have any words to say at all, all right? Because I do. I have tons and tons of words.
See, Jennifer Lawrence has been doing quite a few interviews lately, doing promotion for Hunger Games and all, and I think my crush on her is going to be unparalleled (Adele doesn’t count). You think I go on too much about Emma Stone? You get sick of hearing me lust after Evan Rachel Wood? Well, settle in, because shit’s about to get real.
Check out this interview that Jennifer just did, and let me know if any of you feel the same way:
On being like Katniss: “I wish that I was much more like (Katniss) than I actually am. I think the hardest part about her was that in the books, she doesn’t know how to get people to like her … at the same time, you don’t want to watch somebody for two hours that you don’t like,” explained Lawrence.
On filming the intense scenes: “It was exhausting, especially toward the end when we had six-day weeks for a month … the adrenaline is real, the screaming I volunteer in fighting. Afterward, your heart’s still pumping,” said the actress.
On Woody Harrelson, who plays Haymitch: “(Katniss) was always very hard on Haymitch and making fun of him but I love Woody so much that it almost didn’t come across that way, and there were some scenes where we ended up finishing each other’s sentences and laughing together, so she kind of softens Haymitch a little sooner,” said the actress.
On being blessed: “Walking down the red carpet at the Oscars was incredible and unbelievable, but it wasn’t until I was sitting on a Batman roller coaster at Six Flags … that I realized I really have a blessed life,” she said.
Oh, Jennifer Lawrence. Our love shall be everlasting.
But ok, book update: I finished it last night! The first one, of course, I’m getting the second one later today. AND NO SPOILERS. But I can’t even believe how much I loved that book. I really didn’t think I would: usually my reading includes strictly realistic fiction (my absolute favorite author is Wally Lamb) and plays. The odd fantasy series has managed to sneak in there – I think you guys know enough about my love for Harry Potter and Twilight – but usually I leave that genre alone. But Hunger Games was just so, so great. I laughed, I cried (the ending, you guys? And that part with the lullaby and the flowers?), and I absolutely need to head out and pick up Catching Fire now.
See y’all at the movies on Friday, all right?!
