Jennifer Lawrence: 'Katniss is a great role model'

Nov 11 2013, 8:26pm CST | by Bang Showbiz

Jennifer Lawrence thinks her character in 'The Hunger Games' is a "great role model".

The 23-year-old actress who plays the female lead, Katniss Everdeen, in the adaptation of Suzanne Collin's sci-fi trilogy of the same name, admires her alter-ego's characteristics.

Jennifer told BANG Showbiz at the World Premiere for 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire', at London's Leicester Square yesterday (11.11.13): "I don't think you make the decision to be a role model, I definitely didn't. It's something that just happens when you're in the spotlight and you have all these people looking at you and listening to what you're saying, so you have to decide what do I want the younger generation to hear.

"I think Katniss is a great role model, she's strong and she's not afraid to say what's right even when it is scary."

Sam Claflin, who plays male victor Finnick Odair, felt under pressure for his role in the sequel and worked as hard as possible to ensure he was able to do his character justice.

Sam explained: "It was a huge, huge weight on my shoulders, a huge pressure. I think a lot of fans had really high expectations and I was not meeting even half a per cent of any of them.

"I had a lot of work to do. Definitely. You only have to read the description of his introduction to realize I had a long way to go. So I worked hard and that's all I can do."

Other stars who attended the premiere included Ellie Goulding, Union J, The Wanted's Tom Parker and several cast members including Liam Hemsworth, Jenna Malone and Elizabeth Banks.

Nov 4 2014 10:00am CST | Source: Celebitchy.com

I’m sorry, but this story is just funny now. This is a photo of Jennifer Lawrence leaving a West Hollywood eatery around the time she and Chris Martin broke up. People magazine told the world that JLaw did the deed. We heard all sorts of theories about how Jennifer was weirded out by watching Chris and Goop “play happy families.” I adore JLaw, but I don’t know what she expected by dating a still-married man. Everyone assumed a Goop victory, including Goo ...

Reese Witherspoon doesn’t want to be ‘likeable’ anymore: are you feeling it?

Nov 4 2014 9:00am CST | Source: Celebitchy.com

Are you tired of the Rah Rah Feminism jag that every actress has been on lately? I don’t mind it, honestly. I’d much rather cover actresses talking about feminism than, say, what they eat or how they parent or how they were terribly uncool in their teen years. And while I find American Citizen ™ Reese Witherspoon pretty unlikeable these days, I’ll admit that she has some interesting things to say from in ...

Natalie Dormer appears in the December issue of Cosmo to promote her role as Cressida in Mockingjay: Part I. I bought advance tickets for my daughter’s birthday, so we’re counting down the days until we get to see Katniss kick some booty again. Natalie’s character is super tough too, and she has the half-shaved head to prove it. Natalie’s not getting the big magazine features for this movie because she’s not a huge star. Yet. There’s time for that in t ...

From the Honey Boo Boo's to that twink who works at Target, poverty is, like, so hot right now.
