(Cover) - EN Movies - Jennifer Lawrence worries people will find her annoying because of her starring role in The Hunger Games.
The actress has seen her career soar following roles in Winter’s Bone and blockbuster hit The Hunger Games. Jennifer plays lead role Katniss in the post-apocalyptic trilogy, based on the bestselling novels by Suzanne Collins. The star is currently shooting the second instalment, Catching Fire, and hopes cinemagoers won’t tire of seeing her everywhere.
“But I do worry that I’m too in your face because of the movie,” she told British newspaper The Telegraph. “There are posters of me everywhere and when I see posters of other people everywhere I think they’re annoying, no matter what they’re like personally or professionally. So I worry that I might start to p**s people off.”
Jennifer is currently promoting her new movie Silver Linings Playbook, which also stars Bradley Cooper. The 22-year-old is eager to challenge herself with different movie genres to ensure she doesn’t get typecast too early in her career.
“My biggest concern in taking on this franchise was that people wouldn’t be able to lose themselves in my other films — that they would only see Katniss,” she explained. “I have definitely put a lot of thought into the movies I am doing that come out around The Hunger Games. That’s why making a great film like Silver Linings Playbook was so important.”
Jennifer is thrilled to have reunited with her Hunger Games co-stars, including Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth.
The star has compared making Catching Fire – helmed by Francis Lawrence - to being back at school.
“It’s great to return. It feels like being a sophomore in high school because normally the first day at work is like the first day at school and you don’t know if you are going to make friends,” she smiled. “On this movie I know that I adore everyone.”
