I really encourage you to read that interesting Washington Post interview. Jennifer speaks to Jen Chaney about her friendship with James McAvoy, preparing to play Mystique, how her life was changing during past year, The Hunger Games and what she does in her free time.
“I’m at the Jimmy Fallon dressing room. I was just saying good-bye to my entourage.”
Jennifer Lawrence is on the phone, explaining why there is so much commotion in the background as we attempt to begin a brief interview. She says the word entourage in a way that implies air quotes; Lawrence, 20, doesn’t seem like the type to take the concept of Hollywood posses seriously. But at the least, she should probably get used to the commotion. That’s because in the past year, this Louisville, Ky. native, has quickly rocketed from under-the-radar indie actress to movie industry It Girl.
First she earned an Academy Award nomination for her turn as a steely teen in “Winter’s Bone.” Then she took on the role of young shape-shifter Mystique (non-mutant name: Raven Darkholme) in “X-Men: First Class,” her first attempt at blockbuster fare, which arrives in theaters Friday. And now Lawrence is playing her buzziest role to date: the teen warrior Katniss Everdeen in the adaptation of the popular post-apocalyptic young-adult book series “The Hunger Games,” which is currently shooting in Wilmington, N.C.
“The Hunger Games” fan fervor has made her the subject of intense Internet chatter and also recently landed her on the cover of Entertainment Weekly. So how is Lawrence handling all of the sudden attention? During a conversation briefly interrupted by the lack of cell reception in a parking garage, we talked about that, as well as her transformation into Mystique and how she and “X-Men” co-star James McAvoy bonded on-set. (Apparently that involved making fart noises.)
Was it strange to go from doing movies like “Winter’s Bone” to an “X-Men” flick? Or is there ultimately little difference between making an indie vs. a comic-book film?
Jennifer Lawrence: It’s all filmmaking. The behind the scenes is always different: you have a bigger trailer, there’s better food. Things like that. I still do the movies for the same reasons. I still love the script, I love the director, I love the character and the other actors involved. So all of the reasons why I was there, they were all the same. It’s kind of like camping versus going to a resort. They’re both fun, they’re just different kinds of fun.
I’ve just found new photo from upcoming Marie Claire issue. It’s subscriber’s edition cover. I can’t wait for full photoshoot and interview!
(AccessHollywood.com) Zoe Kravitz says her “X-Men: First Class” co-star Jennifer Lawrence and her rocker dad – a co-star with Jennifer in “The Hunger Games” – bonded long before they were both cast in the upcoming big screen adaptation of Suzanne Collins’ best-selling trilogy.
“It’s funny because Jen and my father met while we were shooting ‘X-Men’ and we all took a trip to Paris at one point and stayed at his house,” she told Access Hollywood at the “X-Men: First Class” junket on Wednesday.
The 22-year-old said her dad – who has been cast opposite Jennifer’s Katniss Everdeen as her stylist Cinna in the movie – became good friends while the three of them vacationed in France.
“They got along really well, so it’s really funny that they are going to be working together,” she continued.
(JustJared.com) Jennifer Lawrence walks to the set of her new movie, The Hunger Games, on Thursday (May 26) in Shelby, North Carolina. The 20-year-old actress was dressed in costume as Katniss Everdeen and wore a simple light blue dress and had her newly darkened hair pulled back.
Edit: I’ve added 10 more photos to the photo gallery, enjoy.
