Jena Malone On Nude ‘Catching Fire’ Scene: ‘We’re Very Faithful To The Adaptation’

Actress gives details on filming Johanna Mason's rather memorable entrance.

Jena Malone certainly knows how to make an entrance.

The 28-year-old left mouths agape as she sashayed her way into “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” Los Angeles premiere on Monday in a sheer, glittering gown by Nicholas Oakwell, leaving very little to the imagination.

On screen, her character Johanna Mason makes an even more daring entrance, stripping totally nude in an elevator while Haymitch, Katniss and Peeta look on.

“We’re very faithful to the adaptation, so in the elevator I did have to pretty much almost take everything off,” Malone said during Sunday’s “Catching Fire: Fan Tribute” special on MTV. “Unfortunately, there was a part of the wardrobe that I couldn’t take off.”

No word on which article stayed put, but Malone was not exactly thrilled about it. The actress lamented that she “really wanted to just see” if she could do a full strip tease in just six seconds.

Malone appeared on the special opposite Finnick actor Sam Claflin, who described Johanna as “unpredictable” and “sexually violent.”

Fans can see Johanna in the (bare) flesh this Friday, when “Catching Fire” opens nationwide.
