Anton Yelchin has described The Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence as “such a powerful person”. The Fright Night actor recalled witnessing Lawrence’s training for the upcoming dystopian film, based on Suzanne Collins’s trilogy of the same name, while working out at the same gym together.
“I was training for a film called Odd Thomas that I was doing at the same gym Jen was training [at for] the bow stuff and all the running. I got to see her and talk to her. I think she’s amazing, and she’s a good friend of mine,” Yelchin recalled to MTV News.
“When I saw Jen, it was different kinds of physical training she was going through, like running training. She’s such a powerful person. She can do anything she puts her mind to. If she needs to transform for something, she’ll transform. If she needs to learn how to kill you with the bow, she’ll do that. She’ll do anything she needs to do.”
Yelchin and Lawrence star together in the upcoming indie drama Like Crazy, which opens in US theatres on October 28 and in the UK on February 3, 2012. Apart from that they know each other from Jodie Foster’s movie ‘The Beaver’, where Jennifer plays his love interest.
