‘Hunger Games’ Jennifer Lawrence: Always Making An Eccentric Impression

by Fallon Prinzivalli

Do you think “Hunger Games” star Jennifer Lawrence is taking applications for a best friend? Ever since she started press rounds for her role as Katniss Everdeen in the box-office blockbuster, we’ve thought she seemed like the most down-to-earth, fun actress around. Whether she’s telling Glamour magazine about how she began raiding the mini-bar or “Chelsea Lately” about her brothers calling her ugly (yeah, right!), Jennifer leaves quite the impression on her audience.

In the latest issue of Rolling Stone (on newsstands March 30), her first words when she met the writer were, “I have to pee so bad.” (Amazing, right?!) And she made equally intriguing first impressions on her “Hunger Games” cast mates, according to the cover story.

Woody Harrelson, the infamous Haymitch Abernathy, recalled meeting Jennifer in his trailer while filming “Hunger Games.” “I was on my bus and on my bus I have a yoga swing. Jennifer comes on, and she goes, ’Hi, Woody, I’m J—is that a sex swing?’ Her first sentence to me.”

Josh Hutcherson had a similar experience in his initial conversation with the starlet. “When I got cast, she called me up for one of those five-minute ’Excited to work with you, blah, blah, blah’ things,” he said. “The conversation started with her saying, ’Think about a catheter going in—ouch!’ and then it turns into a 45-minute rant about zombies and the apocalypse.”

We have a feeling if an undead invasion ever goes down, we’d want Jennifer on our team! She’s already trained to survive in the woods and those bow-and-arrow skills are real. The zombies wouldn’t stand a chance.

And while those two encounters made us chuckle, the most shockingly hilarious impression was made when Jennifer invited her “X-Men: First Class” co-star Zoë Kravitz to her apartment. Zoë recounted, “I’d met her a few times, and she was like, ’You should come over and we’ll hang out.’ So I go over to her apartment and she opens the door in a towel. She’s like, ’Come in, sorry, you’re early, I was about to shower.’ And she drops her towel and gets in the shower, and starts shaving her legs, totally naked. She was like, ’Are we here yet? Is this OK?’ And I was like, ’I guess we’re there!'”

Zoë is now one of Jennifer’s best friends.
