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.

Kristen Stewart did her twitchy, awkward ALS Challenge with Nicholas Hoult

Aug 22 2014 10:00am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

Kristen Stewart did the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge yesterday. She did it with… Nicholas Hoult, her costar in Equals. Some people think that there’s a possibility something is going to happen with Hoult and K-Stew – Hoult and Jennifer Lawrence broke up just before he began working with Kristen, so I don’t know what to tell you. He seems like HER type, but I doubt she is HIS type. As for the video… so many twitches. So awkward. I’ ...

Jennifer Lawrence & Chris Martin love to eat: They ‘pig out & work it off’

Aug 22 2014 9:40am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

I’ve resigned myself to the thought of Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Martin in a relationship. I’m not thrilled about it. It seems like a temporary thing. Jennifer is probably enamored at the thought of dating a global phenom who’s as famous as she is. People fawn all over her all the time, and now she’s fawning over someone else. I get the impression that Nick Hoult was always fading into the background of their relationship. JLaw must ...

Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Martin’s Relationship Heats Up

Aug 22 2014 5:19am CDT | Source: GossipGirls.com

They say every ending leads to a new beginning, and Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Martin are a perfect example of that. I hear that these two were spotted cozying up on a super romantic winery date in New York. My spies caught the rumored couple sampling wines and watching the sunset together at the Wolffer Estate Vineyard on Long Island. “They were there on a date,” a fellow wino dished. “They were very low-key, nobody realized who they were.” Pascal Le Segr ...

Yes! No! Maybe...: Jennifer Lawrence in Talks to Join Quentin Tarantino’s THE HATEFUL EIGHT

Aug 21 2014 7:13pm CDT | Source: Oh No They Didn't!

Jennifer Lawrence is at a point in her career where she can do almost anything she wants short of saying, “I’m Batman now. Take a hike, Affleck.” Thankfully, she continues to be smart about the projects she takes. She has two blockbuster franchises, and she’s found a strong collaborator in David O. Russell. But now there’s another big filmmaker who might work with the talented actress, and one who’s a far cry from her previous directors. ...

Gwyneth Paltrow Did The Ice Bucket Challenge In A Bikini, Nominates Chris Martin

Aug 21 2014 12:05pm CDT | Source: The Superficial

With the exception of Katy Perry, and probably a few others I’m too lazy to Google, most celebrities recognize this is for charity and have been keeping their Ice Bucket Challenges relatively tame which is probably why I hate them so much. Except here’s Gwyneth Paltrow doing hers in a bikini because she has the ass of a 22-year-old stripper, you guys. What is she supposed to do? Wear pants? On top of tha ...
