First Look: Jennifer Lawrence in ‘Hunger Games’

It certainly didn’t take long for The Hunger Games marketing machine to kick into full gear. With the movie slated to hit theaters March 23rd, 2012, Lionsgate has teamed with Entertainment Weekly to release a first look at Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen.

EW was also granted an exclusive interview with Lawrence, who described her first encounter with director Gary Ross last winter during Oscar season. “He was asking me what the experience was like and I just kind of opened up and said, ‘I feel like a rag doll. I have hair and makeup people coming to my house every day and putting me in new, uncomfortable, weird dresses and expensive shoes, and I just shut down and raise my arms up for them to get the dress on, and pout my lips when they need to put the lipstick on.’ And we both started laughing because that’s exactly what it’s like for Katniss in the Capitol.”
Lawrence says her reaction to being offered the role was a mixture of elation and desperate anxiety, but says that she loves the story and that if she had said, “No,” she would have regretted it every day. The issue will be available on newsstands May 20th.
