Sporting her new cropped ’do and a flowing white gown, complete with sequin detailing on the skirt, Lawrence was all smiles as she spoke with MTV News.
“This is absolutely insane and so awesome,” she gushed of the event. “It makes me want to make, like, five more movies.”
Alas, Lawrence and her co-stars have been hard at work filming the final installments in the beloved franchise, “Mockingjay” Parts 1 and 2, but don’t expect Lawrence to lose touch with her on-screen cohorts. The 23-year-old had nothing but praise for co-star Josh Hutcherson when asked about their dynamic.
“Josh is my rock. He’s like a 100-year-old wise, old man,” she said of the 21-year-old actor. “I love Josh. He’s like, a genius-genius.”
The Lawrence/Hutcherson relationship is one we’ve been following since the early days of 2012, when the two were promoting the original “Hunger Games.” When we caught up with them in February of that year, the co-stars detailed exactly how they met — but they were a bit fuzzy on the details. (Hutcherson swore Lawrence was wearing a hot-pink dress when they met at the SAG Awards, while she maintained it was definitely white.)
Let’s not forget about the final point in the Peeta-Katniss love triangle: Gale, aka Liam Hemsworth, who was also on hand for the festivities Monday, as were franchise newcomers Jena Malone and Sam Claflin, who play Katniss’ and Peeta’s fellow victors/Quarter Quell tributes in the film.
Next Monday, the cast will hit the red carpet again for the film’s Los Angeles premiere. Catching Fire will hit theaters nationwide on November 22.
