Jennifer Lawrence: Hunger Games Set Pic!

Jennifer Lawrence walks to the set of her new movie, The Hunger Games, on Thursday (May 26) in Shelby, North Carolina.

The 20-year-old actress was dressed in costume as Katniss Everdeen and wore a simple light blue dress and had her newly darkened hair pulled back.

Also on the set was Liam Hemsworth, who is playing Gale Hawthorne in the movie! Katniss and Gale are longtime friends from Panem’s District 12.

Jennifer recently told EW that she really fell for Katniss as a character. “Listen, I know from the bottom of my heart that I love Katniss. I love her,” she dished.

“It’s kind of like when you have a huge crush on somebody, and it’s almost scary because you don’t want to mess it up and have it not be everything you hope it will be. That’s exactly what I feel about this. I’m terrified. Is it going to be good enough? Am I going to be good enough?” Jennifer added.

UPDATE: Apologies, images removed!

    Maybe it is just me and the way I imagined the characters to look but shouldn’t Liam be playing Peeta and Josh Hutcherson play Gale. Josh looks really small to play Peeta and short compared to Jennifer.

  • girlonfire

    Peeta was described as average height. Read the book.

  • Celia

    She’s not Katniss.

  • Rick

    Wow that is not how I imagined Katniss. She would not wear such a girlie sundress. Maybe after the ‘makeover’. Gale looks like he has curly hair and plump lips…very Mexican? They both look very Mexican, actually. Blond haired, fair skin Caucasians playing another race like black face in the olden days… in 2011 no less.

  • The Hunger Joke

    No, it isn’t just you, Asha. I don’t see them as Peeta and Gale as well. Liam isn’t good looking at all to me. Gale is hansome and cool in my eyes, whereas Liam is the opposite. Ugh.
    And Jennifer Lawrence still looks too well fed to be Katniss. I thought she would at least try to achieve a leaner figure for this role.
    I’m so disappointed with their casting choices. If it doesn’t have good reviews I’m not going to watch it even though I loved the books. Actually, especially because I loved the books. I don’t want the movie to ruin it for me.

  • melannie

    Thisis the day of the reaping.

    I’m still mad about her being Katniss.
    She does not look like the 16 year old she’s supposed to be playing.

  • Jenny

    I rather a talented actress play Katniss than an unknown actress cast for her looks but fit the character description to a tee…she’ll have a longer career after the franchise ends…

  • melannie

    @asha:

    Peeta is supposed to be average-height and bulky.
    Gale is the tall, handsome one.

  • Jenny

    Also, the movie won’t have bad reviews for the bad acting….

  • melannie

    @Rick:

    They’re supposed to be olived-skinned, with dark eyes and dark hair.
    Sorta like mexicans, actually.

  • asha

    If you all look at my comment I said he looked shorted COMPARED to JENNIFER.

  • Dani

    Peeta’s handsome too.

  • lilly

    @melannie:
    middle-eastern, spanish, or itallians are olived skinned.
    Mexicans are considered orange skinned.

  • http://twitter.com/officalvstyle Abby

    I still can’t believe Josh is Peeta. Ewww.

  • MALYSHA

    @Celia:
    Apparently she is get over it.=D why do you people even bother to comment

  • MALYSHA

    WHY ARE YOU ALL COMMENTING, IF YOU DON’T LIKE WAT YOU SEE GO BITCH ABOUT IT ELSEWHERE JEEZE, YOU PEOPLE ARE SO SICKENING.

  • lilly

    Im not really digging it though,
    I mean they could have went all the way and really toned her up. I imagined Katniss as strong and tough yet hot, like the girl who kicks booty with all her muscles. Like a young Lara Croft.

    I expected them to make Jen workout so she would be tightened.
    I mean, she is by no means chubby, if you look at pics of her she is rather thin and slender she just has no muscle tone.

  • jiss

    @MALYSHA:
    go screw your dog. we can comment all we want to.
    If you dont like it leave.

  • http://twitter.com/officalvstyle Abby

    @lilly: I know what you mean. I really did think they would have tried to make her look more under-fed.

  • MALYSHA

    @jiss

    I don’t have a dog dumbass and I’m not telling you to not comment. Learn to read what is there!

  • jiss

    @MALYSHA:
    then go eat ur on crap just leave.

  • MALYSHA

    @jiss no thanks I’m actually a fan who doesn’t whine and bitch, to show you just how mature I am I’ll start by not replying back to whatever you have to say. I’ll be the eldest and you can bitch on. fool.

  • Mockingjay

    Immaturity.
    Anyway they look fine!

    @Mockingjay: I know right? Grow up guys, come on!

    Why were the pictures removed? Why is justjared bowing down to the studios? Paparazzi pictures are the property of the paps and the site that purchased those pictures, unless they were released by the studios or taken on private land??

  • THG

    Medium height is 5’9″ to 5’11. Josh Hutcherson is between 5’5″-5’7″ which is BELOW even average height. He is SHORT, not medium height. He looks nothing like Peeta. Next to Jennifer Lawrence he is going to look like a little shrimp, little brother. We have seen pictures of Katniss and Gale but they keep hiding Josh from pap pictures. We all know he is going to look like crap with fans getting mad. Lionsgate is going to keep hiding him.

  • Jezza

    @lilly: I’m Mexican-American, and I don’t have orange skin. Get educated.

  • Keilee

    @asha:
    That was my first thought when i heard the casting but everyone on the thread here just bitched and booed at me for saying it.

  • jeffrey

    @Jenny:

    your saying jennifer lawrence isn’t talented maybe you forgot she was nominated for a oscar a oscar the highest award a actor can get

  • cmac

    @melannie: Grey eyed Mexicans?

  • Celia

    @MALYSHA:

    Because I’ve read the books and therefore have an opinion about the actors playing the characters. THAT’S why we people decide to comment.

  • Gabbie

    @melannie:
    Gray eyes, mind you. And this is set in the future, so their ethnicity is ambiguous, really.

  • Danielle

    @melannie: don’t need to be mexican… but olive skin like Natalie Portman or Mila Kunis.

  • nightingjay15

    Augh, the pics aren’t there! But I google-imaged them, so it’s all cool…but I really wanted Hunter Parrish to be Peeta! In my mind, he has always been Peeta. He has that easy-going aura around him and is very charming and funny. And Josh does look a little shorter compared to Jennifer. And I really didn’t want Jennifer as Katniss either. I would have really preferred if they’d even picked some new talent, instead of playing it safe and picking an Oscar-nominated actress. Now, don’t get me wrong; she did an amazing job in Winter’s Bone, but I don’t think she can portray the complicated emotions and feelings of Katniss.

  • Lily

    @asha: i totally agree!!

  • jimbb

    @Jezza:
    Mexicans are considered orange-skinned. Not Olive.
    Olive skinned are a classification of skin of people raised on the Mediteranian. Aka Italians, Arabs, Jews, Spainsih and some East-European.
    Mexicans are not Olive Skinned.
    Anyways, in the next 50 years minorities should be nearly nonexistent in America.

  • jason

    i’m still just not believing that jennifer as katniss is a starving girl from the seam. she looks more like a career. i’ll give her the befefit of the doubt though. i like jennifer as an actress, i hope she does katniss justice

  • Keli

    Woohoo just heard that Miley is coming to NC to visit Liam after her last show in Mexico!

  • My eyes!!!

    I remember when the cast was announced for Twilight. Fans of the books were up in arms that the roles were miscast, too. And then they saw the film and now it’s fan love for Kristen, Robert and Taylor. Gary Ross is a great storyteller and filmmaker (Big, Dave, Seabiscuit). Chances are the film adaptation is in good hands with this Oscar nominated talent. Why not wait and see how the film turns out before writing it off?
