For savvy YA fans, there are few similarities between Stephenie Meyer’s vampire romance and Suzanne Collins’ gritty tale of survival. But, of course, not everyone who writes things on the internet knows this. Thus, the deluge of comparisons between the already-blockbuster franchise and the sure-to-be blockbuster franchise (i.e. “The Twilight Saga” and “The Hunger Games“). Though, it probably would be fair to say that Jennifer Lawrence is just one boffo box office away from the kind of success that Kristen Stewart has been enjoying (or rather, enduring) for the last few years.
So when Katniss herself stopped by MTV News yesterday, we asked if she’s ever met Bella—er—Miss Stewart, or if she’d ever consider commiserating with her over their shared fates.
“No, I haven’t spoken to her,” Jennifer replied. “But I think if I ever passed her we’d be like [points at invisible Kristen and then herself, shrugging her shoulders and making untranscribable noises].” By which we think she means they’d give each other a knowing look.
“I don’t know what we’d really say,” she went on.
We, on the other hand, have already constructed this imaginary meeting-of-the-minds in our head, and it’s basically a celebrity-death-match-style showdown over the merits of Edward Cullen versus Peeta Mellark. We’ll let you guess who wins.
