Jennifer Lawrence has revealed how she intends to take a road trip across Ireland with her Hunger Games co-star Natalie Dormer in 2016.
Lawrence, speaking to the Irish Sun on Sunday, said that Game of Thrones star Dormer speaks glowingly of Ireland and the pair plan to ‘go all in’ when they head for a holiday in Dublin.
“Natalie adores Ireland and talks about it all the time,” Lawrence said.
“And I’ve never been so we’re hoping to do a trip, even a cool road trip there next year. She’s been talking about it and saying ‘C’mon Jen, I know you’d love it’, and I think it could be fun.”
“If we do it, I’d want to see everything, all the touristy stuff, wear those big green hats and go to pubs. Definitely drink Guinness and go to the Guinness factory. You know, I’m going all in.”
Dormer is very familiar with this part of the world, having filmed both The Tudors and Game of Thrones in this country.
“Natalie did The Tudors for a few years and is back and forth all the time, so I’ll have a proper guide. Off the beaten track, it won’t be the blind leading the blind.”
Lawrence is particularly looking forward to the absence of paparazzi in Ireland.
“Apparently, well she told me this, there’s no paparazzi there, and everyone’s so relaxed. So you can totally let your hair down. That sounds amazing to me.”
According to Digital Spy Jennifer will be joining Graham Norton?s New Year’s Special. It’s also been revealed that they’ll be bringing the year to a close in style with other guests like Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg.

Brie Larson is in early talks to replace Jennifer Lawrence as the star of Lionsgate?s ?The Glass Castle,? an individual with knowledge of the project told TheWrap.
Lawrence, who will be back in theaters next month in the studio?s final ?Hunger Games? sequel, had been previously attached to the project, which is an adaptation of Jeannette Walls? best-selling memoir.
Should the deal happen, Larson would work with director Destin Daniel Cretton, who directed her in 2013?s critically acclaimed indie drama ?Short Term 12.? Marti Noxon wrote the first draft of the script, and Gil Netter and Erik Feig are producing.
Lawrence had signed on to the project in late 2013 to both star in it and produce it. However, she eventually dropped out, and now has the sci-fi film ?Passengers? in the works, as well as a screenplay with friend Amy Schumer.
?The Glass Castle? is about a young girl who comes of age in a dysfunctional family of nonconformist nomads led by a mother and father who attempt to distract the children from their poverty.
Lionsgate declined to comment to TheWrap.
