INTERVIEW: Jennifer Lawrence confesses her Harry Potter obsession

Fandango had the chance to interview our Katniss, Jennifer Lawrence and talked about The Hunger Games and her Harry Potter obsession. Read the interview below:
“I was a Harry Potter nerd,” the posh and composed Oscar nominee admitted to me during a one-on-one interview on behalf of the Games. “Pencils were wands. I was going to Hogwarts. The whole thing.”

So it’s safe to assume that a portion of the $169 million earned by Deathly Hallows in its record-establishing opening weekend came from Lawrence and friends and they trekked out to see the film again and again in theaters. In fact, when I asked her if she’d mind if Hollywood one day decided to remake the Harry Potter franchise with new actors, her answer surprised me.

“You don’t understand what a nerd I am. I mean, if they remade them, I’d still go. Like, I’ve seen all of [the originals], and that’s always going to be Harry. That’s always going to be Ron and Hermione. But if they did it again, I absolutely would go, because I want to see it all again.”
With the tremendous success that The Hunger Games earned over its opening weekend, it's safe to say that Suzanne's best-selling trilogy is indeed on the same level as other huge franchises such as Harry Potter and Twilight. We couldn't be more proud.
