OnTheRedCarpet.com has posted Friday satellite interview with Jennifer Lawrence! She talks super hero training, Mystique costume and The Hunger Games frenzy, so check it out! :)
On The Hunger Games frenzy: “I don’t really go on the Internet. I don’t think that’s a good thing to do,” Lawrence said. “I never went on it before so I’m not quite sure of all the comments and all of the hype that’s going on.” She added, “I know there are a lot of fans because I’m one of them.” One more video:here.
EW: After weeks of hand-wringing about whether Jennifer Lawrence was the right girl to pick up Hunger Games heroine Katniss Everdeen?s bow, fans seemed to have taken heart from both EW?s exclusive first look and Lawrence?s sensitive take on the character. That frees up some mental energy to concentrate on other matters surrounding Gary Ross? movie adaptation of Suzanne Collins? epic adventure. Like, will Josh Hutcherson look good blonde? And is Liam Hemsworth an interesting actor, or just a muscular one? Here, Lawrence offers her take on what makes them the right guys to play Katniss? District 12 homeboys Peeta and Gale.
PEETA (Josh Hutcherson): ?Josh is so charming,? she says. ?He?s so charming! And when you read in the books about Peeta being able to manipulate anybody ? I mean Josh could get, well, I don?t know a metaphor for [this scenario] except for dirty ones. But he?s charming, he?s sweet, he?s down to earth, he?s normal. He embodies all of it and brings it all to Peeta. So when you meet him he?s got all of these great qualities and every single one of them come across in every line he says out loud as Peeta.?
GALE (Liam Hemsworth): ?Liam is just a solid brick of muscle and you look at him and you?re like ?Oh, okay great!?? she says. ?But he?s got depth and he?s interesting and at the same time he?s natural and he flows.?

MTV News was lucky enough to score a few minutes with Jennifer Lawrence recently to talk all about her exciting upcoming projects, including “The Hunger Games” and “X-Men: First Class.” While discussing the huge fan-following behind the “Games” trilogy, the topic of comparisons to another popular book series-turned-box-office dominator, “Twilight,” and its leading lady, Kristen Stewart, came up.
Given that “The Hunger Games” and “Twilight” have a few similarities, MTV asked Lawrence if she’s spoken to Stewart about the experience, or if she’d want to commiserate in any way about starring in hugely popular book-to-movie franchises.
“No, I haven’t spoken to her,” Lawrence said, and then playfully acted out a little pantomime scene of what might happen if and when the two ever do meet.
To do so, Lawrence used a series of incomprehensible grunts and gestures that could be loosely translated as, “Hi, how are you? You’re in those movies. You are, too. Cool.”
“I don’t really know what we’d say,” Lawrence admitted. “[We’d] just be like [gestures to an invisible book in her hand], ‘Books! Who knew?'”
(via MTV.com) The lovely Jennifer Lawrence stopped by MTV News recently to explain why taking on Mystique wasn’t actually a no-brainer, and how it felt to step into Rebecca Romijn’s very pretty and very hard-to-fill shoes.
“It was a brainer,” Lawrence said about her decision to take the role, adding that she first had to familiarize herself with the world of X-Men before reading the script.
“The movies are fantastic. I watched them and became a huge fan and after reading the [“X-Men: First Class”] script I really loved it and I loved the character,” she explained. “I was already a fan of the director, I was already a fan of James McAvoy and Michael Fassbeneder, so then it became a little bit more of a no-brainer.”
Regarding the fact that Lawrence is not the first actress to play Mystique, the Oscar nominee joked that it would have helped if her predecessor had been less attractive.
“It would have made my job a lot easier if she wasn?t the most gorgeous person in the world,” Lawrence said. “I was like, ?Really??”
She went on to say that she was able to take a few things from Romijn’s portrayal, but that the fact that this film is a prequel helped open things up a bit.
“It was good because you can take physical traits, but it?s nice because it?s an origin story so it?s before [Mystique] became who she is, so you do have a little bit more freedom.”
