Jennifer Lawrence talks about her love for her character, meeting Suzanne Collins, why people relate to the books and more in the March Issue of Parade Magazine.

What makes Katniss such a popular character?“I love Katniss. She doesn’t have a lot, but she’s happy, and she faces death out of love for her family. She doesn’t want to be a hero, but she becomes the symbol for a revolution, a kind of futuristic Joan of Arc.” 
Why do you think so many people relate to the books?“I was watching the Kardashian girl getting divorced, and that’s a tragedy for anyone. But they’re using it for entertainment, and we’re watching it. The books hold up a terrible kind of mirror: This is what our society could be like if we became desensitized to trauma and to each other’s pain.” 
Were you nervous when Hunger Games author Suzanne Collins visited the set?“I was so nervous! I was like, what if she watches me and says I’m awful? But she was wonderful. She’s sweet, and nice, and smart.”    

Thanks for the tip!
