    My new girl crush!!! Love her as katniss

  • willanka

    Wow, she looks WAY better in her casual clothes than in all those officiall outfits. She should really fired her stylist and find a new one or start to dress herself.

  • laney

    Already sick of her.

  • sshh

    i love you Jen! She was amazing in the hunger games. Definitely one to watch as an actress! Great career ahead of her! <3

    Jennifer Lawrence has recieved incredibly awe worthy reviews and praise from critics and fans. After watching the Hunger Games, it’s safe to say that she lives up to the hype. I’ve never seen a young actress act so well. She IS Katniss and she makes the best action heroine in Hollywood after Angelina Jolie. That’s all.

  • claw

    The heroine of our generation. Yeah that is what CNN is calling her. Congrats on THG sucess. She carried the whole movie and she deserves it all the praise.

  • YAY


  • jo

    what a healthy-looking woman! but now, she’s probably going to be under extreme pressure from movie execs to turn into a stick insect

  • I

    Fantastic actress. She will go far in life. Wish her all the best and can’t wait for the next Hunger Games movie.

  • Jolie

    @jo: She has the body Angelina Jolie had in Lara Croft. How can you expect a stick looking woman to climb trees, throw arrows, run, and fight? JL is all muscle and endurance.

  • Regina George

    @Jolie: ok, I love JenLaw but she doesnt have a body like Angie did and that is definetly not all muscle. Which I am actually Ok with. Just because she isnt a bombshell doesnt make her any less amazing. In fact it is better if she is more ‘normal’ looking because it is easier to blend in for roles.

    Katniss was supposed to be thin. It’s not about Jen’s own weight which is fine. But actors gain and lose weight to play characters all the time. And Jen tries to justify why she wouldn’t lose weight but she should have tried to make the role more believable. She doesn’t like exercise -fine. I bet Charlize Theron didn’t like getting fat to play Monster either, but she did it.

    I’m sure I’m in the minority but I hated HG – walked out after 20 minutes. And I’m not a teen, either. I’m 56 years old and have more admiration for Kristen Stewart than JL. Kristen, Rob, and the rest of the cast of Twilight took fictitious beings and made them seem as if they could be real. Kristen took an awkward teenager and progressed with her all the way through to what is, at least for now, the end of the story. And Edward – wanting to marry the girl first – is every parent’s dream. The love story sustained the story – without a lot of blood, gore, kids kiling kids, and other violence which helped rope in the male audience. A love story is always harder to maintain because there isn’t also the “extras” you find in action movies. And Twilgiht told the story but didn’t have show the violence of the battles as so front and center because violence, even when part of the telling of a tale, doesn’t have to be front and center. If people want to see kids dying at the hand of other kids, Google Columbine, Jonesboro Arkansas, the sniper in Texas years ago, and the list goes on and on – and you can watch to your heart’s content. If you’re really lucky, you’ll even get the high- definition pictues of Eric Harris and Dylan Kleibold lying in their own blood in the Columbine library after they killed each other when they were done shooting everyone else. If you don’t like that, watch your local news – especially if you live in a big city – and you’ll see all the drive-bys, gang shootings, etc. that you can want. Twilgiht was about the love story, the families, about the people and the violence was very secondary. In HG the violence was the story if you can call it a story. HG may get the numbers because the fighting appeals to a male audience, but Twilight is a far better story and movie than HG ever will be.

    This girl truly has a pear shaped body and i’m not saying this, to put her down, just making an observation!!

  • Shawna

    Anyone who says she is overweight is a complete and utter moron! That is what a healthy woman looks like people, watch and learn!

  • rarrlesnakes

    My friend went to see this movie and he said he cried so hard for wasting his $17.50 …. he was sooo pissed and disappointed …

  • Carla

    She’s a special one.

  • R

    She’s beautiful and sexy, as usual….:)
    when they showed the teaser for BD2, when the zombie Bella out from behind the tree, someone yelled “kill her, Katniss!” we were all dying of laught in the theater …

  • Movie Treasures By Brenda

    Love those iimages because they make Jennifer Lawrence seem so real. She did do a good job as Katniss.

  • katnip_everdean

    I didnt think this could be better than Harry Potter but it was! Jennifer shits all over Emma Watson in the acting department. I hope they split mockingjay into 2 parts so we have this series longer!!!

  • Manoush

    She ‘s like a young charlize theron, gorgeous and talented.
