‘The Hunger Games’ Jennifer Lawrence Glamour April 2012!

American film and television actress, Jennifer Lawrence is featured for the April 2012 issue of Glamour. She is known for some her roles such as in The Bill Engvall Show, The Buring Plain and Winter’s Bone

On hearing The Hunger Games was being turned into a film:

 ”When I heard they were making the movie, I was like, ‘oh, that’s nice—they’re going to ruin another great book.’ But then I met Gary[Ross, the director], and he was unbelievable and brilliant and genius.”

On playing Katniss Everdeen:

”I gave myself three days. I knew from reading the books that I loved The Hunger Games. I just didn’t know if it was worth changing my life for. The people who used to ignore me at parties, now they’re nice to me and kissing my ass. I wanted to make sure that when I said yes, I wouldn’t regret it. And I don’t regret it. I would have said no because I was scared, and then I would have been that bitter actress telling my grandkids, ‘I’m the one that turned it down.’”

On staying in shape:

 “I hate saying, ‘I like exercising.’ I want to punch people who say that in the face. But it’s nice being in shape for a movie, because they basically do it all for you. It’s like, ‘Here’s your trainer. This is what you can eat.’”

On being a famous actress:

“Just recently I started letting myself eat things from the minibar. When we were kids, we would never open the minibar. A $6 Snickers bar? But the other day I was in a hotel and I was staring at a Snickers bar, and I finally just ate it. Then it was like something in me snapped. I opened all these drinks. I thought: I can do it now. Now I’m all grown-up. I can eat things from the minibar.”

On her life in the public eye:

“In some ways, it’s a hard life, but it’s a great professional life. I’m doing what I love, and then I get months and months of rest. I have a lot of money for a 21-year-old. I can’t stand it when actors complain.”

The Hunger Games releases March 23.
