Sam Claflin on Jennifer Lawrence: 'She's A Young, Talented Klutz'

Sam Claflin is making us melt on the one of the July 2014 covers for Glamour UK, in celebration of the 2014 Women of the Year.

Here’s what the 27-year-old actor had to share:

On Finnick Odair: “I couldn’t help but come across comments on my casting. They were just everywhere. I started the process thinking I was going to have to have serious surgery to make everyone happy. With a young Brad Pitt’s face, Zac Efron’s abs, Dwayne Johnson’s pecs, and Channing Tatum’s left calf! But it’s impossible to please everyone. I trusted the team that brought you Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss. They had their reasons for picking me and I worked my butt off to prove to any doubters that I was the man for the job.”

On working with Jennifer Lawrence: “She’s this young, talented klutz who has won an Oscar at such a young age and has the entire world loving her. But she deserves every bit of praise she’s received. I can safely say that she genuinely hasn’t and never will let any of it go to her head. She’s an inspiration to me as much as everyone else and I’ve loved having the opportunity to work with her.”

On marrying Laura Haddock: “Getting married was easily one of the greatest achievements of the past 12 months. To have a wife with such wondrous, creative imagination, who planned every inch of it, made the day all the more special. Every five seconds I find myself falling harder and deeper in love with her.”

On his honor as Man of the Year: “It was a tad unexpected, to say the least, but i feel very honored. I’ll continue to do what I’m doing so as not to let you down! I feel truly privileged to have my name along all the previous winners. Thank you very much.”

    His comments on his wife are so precious.

  • Kirsten

    I never knew much about him except for he is handsome and a in a handful of good films but what a genuine guy. No bashing, complaining and he seems honest and self-deprecating. Rare for a celebrity. Keep it up Sam! Glad to read about someone who is so gracious.

    Gosh.His wife is lucky to have him,i wish they will last forever and he will stay humble and grounded. I love him. refreshing to find someone genuine in HW.,there are very few of them. and oh, I just love his accent

  • Jill

    I think he is a good guy who is well grounded. I wonder what it must be like to work on a movie like The Hunger Games with Sam, Josh, Liam, and Jennifer. They all seem like decent people to me. Can’t wait for Mockingjay. And I agree his wife is lucky to have him.

  • Jenna

    Sweet.. Lucky lucky Laura, They will surely make cute babies. I find this guy very down to earth and grounded I hope he will stay that way and not let Hollywood fame affect him. Watched some of his TV series before he hit it big and I can say that he is a brilliant actor. He mesh perfectly well with Josh and Jen. Goodluck Sam and congratulations on your Man of the Year win. Love love your accent by the way dont lost it.

  • Kiri
