"One of the oddities of Jennifer Lawrence’s life right now is that the character that she is most closely associated with— Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games—is on a trajectory that is, in many ways, similar to Lawrence’s own. “When Winter’s Bone was getting nominated,” says Lawrence, “I had only done indies, and suddenly I was introduced to this brand-new world where I didn’t feel like myself. I was in these weird gowns and listening to people talk about things I didn’t understand. And I remember reading that in the book and being like, Oh, my God, I know exactly what this feels like. I don’t know what it’s like to get ready for your death, but I do know what it’s like to be almost a puppet. And then when I was making the second film, I had become more acquainted with that world, and I think that’s something that Katniss experiences. She is different when she comes back. She does feel more comfortable in the Capitol; she understands the people more, and it’s not as eerie and scary and unfamiliar. She kind of knows how to work the system.”"
“Just for her sanity, I personally wish she would slow down a little bit,” says Francis Lawrence (no relation), who directed Catching Fire and in October will begin shooting the final two Hunger Games films in Atlanta, back-to-back. “I think that going from one set to the next to the next will eventually take a toll. I hope at some point she gets some time off.”
