On returning to The Hunger Games franchise
“It’s great to return [to Catching Fire],” she beams. “It feels like being a sophomore in high school because normally the first day at work is like the first day at school and you don’t know if you are going to make friends. On this movie I know that I adore everyone.”
What does worry her, though, even more than her own ubiquity is Katniss’s popularity. “My biggest concern in taking on this franchise was that people wouldn’t be able to lose themselves in my other films — that they would only see Katniss.”
… “I have definitely put a lot of thought into the movies I am doing that come out around The Hunger Games,” she says.
On dealing with super stardom
“You can prepare for it in certain ways,” she says of her sudden rise to superstardom. “I know if I don’t want to get followed I have to take a different car and I’ve learnt not to leave pictures on the internet.
“But I do worry that I’m too in your face because of the movie. There are posters of me everywhere and when I see posters of other people everywhere I think they’re annoying, no matter what they’re like personally or professionally. So I worry that I might start p—— people off.”
