Hey Film Fans,
I think it’s safe to say, we’re all TEAM KATNISS! It’s hard not to be enthralled by the Hunger Games heroine . Yes, her sense of purpose is beyond admirable. But it is her courage, resilience and unconditional love for her younger sister that makes her worthy to be truly one of this generation’s role models. Oh that Bella Swan, she’s really no Katniss Everdeen. So who better to encompass all that on the silver screen than 21 year old Jennifer Lawrence?
Talent, humour and humility? This girl is going to go a long way. Click below to see Flick Chick’s one-on-one interview with J-Law herself!
In rising mega movie star terms, 2012 is the year of Jennifer Lawrence—at least to everyone but Jennifer Lawrence. Personally, the next big thing would rather be on her couch at home in Santa Monica. “I hate going to those Hollywood parties,” she told TODAY during our one-on-one interview at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles. But that hasn’t stopped her meteoric rise since her stunning performance in the 2010 indie Winter’s Bone. It garnered the then 19 year lass from Kentucky multiple Best Actress award nominations including the Golden Globe, the SAG ( Screen Actors Guild), the Critics’ Choice Awards and the coveted Oscar.
Where did this girl come from, everyone wanted to know?
But after her fan favourite performance as the young Mystique in the critical and commercial hit X-Men: First Class in 2011 and then beating out 30 other Hollywood starlets including fellow Oscar nominee Hailee Steinfeld, Saoirse Ronan and Chloe Moretz to land the highly coveted role of Katniss, the word now on everyone’s lips is “How many major acting awards is this talented ingénue going to win in the years to come?”
Because even though she’s not willing to play the Hollywood fame game at all, what with forthright quotes like “I don’t diet. I do exercise! But I don’t diet. You can’t work when you’re hungry, you know?” , the girl known for her dead-panned humour is dedicated to her craft. She read the entire The Hunger Games trilogy in five days and entered eight weeks of physical training pre-filming that included archery, yoga and combat fighting. And yet, she still has time to pull pranks on her co-stars and joke about how “it’s very good I found acting since I’m not very good at anything much else. Archery and acting is about all I have to offer! ”
“I wanted to start off by wishing you the Hunger Games mantra-quote : “May the odds ever be your favour,” I said to her during our chat. “But after seeing you do such an amazing job as Katniss, I don’t think you actually need it!”
“Aww, thanks! No I do!” she replied.
Like we said, “Talent, Humour and Humility”. Watch out world!
