Exclusive: Jennifer Lawrence & Josh Hutcherson: There Was “No Need to Diet” For Hunger Games
Everyone’s favorite girl on fire is back… and were not talking about Alicia Keyes! Jennifer Lawrence returns as Katness Everdeen in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and we sat down with her and Josh Hutcherson about the highly anticipated sequel, including how they prepped for the role.
“I tried to tone it down some,” revealed Hutcherson of his crazy eating habits. “But it doesn’t work for very long.”
“But, the movies are so activate it’s not necessary” added Lawrence. “There really is no need to diet on these movies.”
But while they didn’t go to any extreme measures to prep for their roles, newcomers Sam Claflin & Jena Malone had a lot of work to do.
“It was tough,” admits Claflin. “When I got the call to say I got an audition for this character … I typed the name Finnick Odair into Google and I was like ‘Oh God’ I’ve got a lot to prepare. But before I was cast I read all three books in like 5 days.”
In the film, Malone and Claflin play previous hunger games winners who are thrown back into the games along with Katness and Peeta. Meanwhile, Lenny Kravitz who plays Cena and Elizabeth Banks who plays Effie try to keep Katness out of trouble, while also looking pretty stylish. Check out what they both had to say about their wardrobes.
