The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
Who Was There: Director Francis Lawrence, Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson, Willow Shields, Lenny Kravitz, Jena Malone, Jeffrey Wright. Sam Claflin could not make it as he was going overseas.
What They Said:
"A dream cast. A dream story." - Francis Lawrence describing the opportunity to direct the movie and the two Mockingjay films.
"It's interesting to come to work and get whipped for three straight days." - Hemsworth on his torture scene.
"The stakes weren't as high." - Jennifer Lawrence after Dave Karger compared the Oscar season to the Victory Tour.
"(The) wedding dress was my favorite to look at. It was five feet in circumference and I'm not good at walking in large dresses. But it was gorgeous and I loved it because it was understated...That's sarcasm. " - Lawrence on her favorite dress from the movie.
We also chatted with Jennifer Lawrence, Lenny Kravitz, Josh Hutcherson and Willow Shields. Lawrence reveals which new cast member she was most excited to work with, and Kravitz's favorite part of Catching Fire was getting to make more of a political statement -- with fashion, of course!
