INTERVIEW: Jennifer Lawrence says it's okay for her to be known as Katniss for the rest of her life

In an interview with Canoe at the Toronto International Film Festival, Jennifer Lawrence talks about how her role as Katniss in The Hunger Games has affected the other projects that she has been offered, adding that it's okay for her to be known as Katniss for the rest of her life.

Did the Hunger Games mean a change in the roles you’ve been offered? 
I didn’t really have any career expectations. I know that seems weird, but I’ve always been incredibly lucky, in that, the one script I read, that I fall in love with and I’m like, ‘I have to make this movie!’ or ‘I have to work with this director!’ — I’ve done it.
So that was such a rare, incredibly lucky thing that’s happened to me, that I wasn’t pining after these imaginary roles that I thought Hunger Games would satisfy. It was actually the opposite — I was afraid this one character would overpower the rest of my characters. But I genuinely liked the books and the movie and that character, and I wouldn’t be embarrassed to be known as that character for the rest of my life. Well, obviously, not only that character.
