Jennifer Lawrence – Katniss in The Hunger Games – was in our building yesterday, rolling in to MTV headquarters wearing flared jeans (Fashionistas: are these cool again?) and a cute stripped cardigan. She’s busy promoting X-Men: First Class (Lawrence did Letterman, too) but her interviews all seem to trend toward our favorite topic these days: The Hunger Games. She told Access Hollywood that as a lover of the series, she feels “like a fan that gets to dress up.” Who needs to be in a movie to dress up like Katniss? We’re wearing our Mockingjay pin right now.
Lawrence also reveals that she and co-stars Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson have been enduring intense physical training to prep for their roles. “I love archery! I really love it. And I’m starting to do stunts with the bow and arrow, so I kind of feel like Hugh Jackman. And then I’m doing rock climbing [and] tree climbing.” She adds, “We all pretty much have to get in supernatural shape for this.”
We were most excited by her interview with Letterman (below the jump). The actress comes across as totally down to earth in the “we could be BFFs and scarf down cheeseburgers together while watching 10 Things I Hate About You” sorta way. Goofy, quick, smart, self-assured and sexy — with a body that isn’t a bag of bones! The more we watch her in action, the more we love her as the face of our new favorite franchise.
