In a great new interview with Collider, Jennifer Lawrence talks in detail about working on Silver Linings Playbook, being nominated for two Oscars, her work on The Hunger Games and Catching Fire. Check out some of the interview below!
How do you feel about so many young women looking upto you now, since having taken that role?
LAWRENCE: It’s exciting! It’s really nice. And I’m so happy that I don’t have a secret life because that would be so stressful.
What was it like to revisit the character for the second film, Catching Fire?
LAWRENCE: If possible, there’s even less preparation because I was like, “I’ve done this before.” It was incredible because it was like going back to high school. We had a lot of the same crew, and obviously Josh [Hutcherson] and Liam [Hemsworth] were there. Normally, when I do a movie, I’m meeting people for the first time, so it was just amazing to be able to have the same group of people. It was so fun. And it’s a character that I love, and a story and message that I’m passionate about, so I haven’t managed to get bored. That’s a pretty hard character to get bored with, though.
Jennifer also talks about her desire to direct a film one day.
Do you have any interest in directing?
LAWRENCE: Yeah, I would love to direct. I’ve wanted to direct since I was 16 and I saw Lori [Petty] directing. And I’ve been fortunate enough to work with some of the best directors in the world that I can hopefully learn something from, but I don’t think I’m ready. I try to soak up and learn, as much as I can. I just don’t want to annoy anybody.
If you were to direct a movie, what would it be like?
LAWRENCE: It would be like Step Brothers. I’m serious! I saw Step Brothers and I was like, “Why didn’t I direct that?!”
