Jennifer Lawrence covers Empire for ‘Catching Fire’: do you still love Katniss?

Jennifer Lawrence

Jennifer Lawrence covers the November issue of Empire magainze as Katniss Everdeen. Of course all eyes are on the upcoming release of Hunger Games: Catching Fire. At first I wasn’t looking as forward to this sequel as the first movie. I (perhaps unfairly) blamed Sam Claflin and his uneventful portrayal of Finnick Odair in three seconds of the trailer. I’ll still see the second movie and give it a fair chance. Empire magazine is warming up the promotional trail:

Our heroine, Katniss Everdeen, will be on the cover of Empire Magazine’s November issue. This issue will be Empire’s winter preview, and will have a feature on The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, alongside other highly-anticipated movies such as Alfonso Cuaron’s Gravity, the second installment of The Hobbit, and more.

The feature will include comments by Jennifer Lawrence on dealing with her ballooning fame, and how she deals with people treating her differently now that she’s made it big:

“I get that a lot,” she admitted. “I’ll go to get a coffee where I always get coffee and all of a sudden theres this weird mood, and I’m like, ‘Come on, I still get coffee here, just say hello’.”

[From Empire Online]

Note to JLaw: Buy a Keurig. It’s not “real coffee,” but it does the caffeinated trick. She shouldn’t be so surprised at people’s reactions. If I saw Jennifer in a coffee shop, I’d probably have the same dorked-out reaction she did while meeting Jeff Bridges. Are we still excited for a real heroine like Katniss Everdeen to hit the big screen? She’s such a great role model for kids and adults alike. For Katniss, the end goal is never a romantic relationship. As a mother of a tween girl, I sincerely appreciate the sentiment.

Here’s the real reason for this post — some pap pictures of JLaw and Liam Hemsworth catching dinner together. This event comes after a hard day on the Mockingjay set in Atlanta. Thank goodness Jennifer and Nicholas Hoult are officially a couple again. Otherwise we’d be hearing all sorts of fake hook-up rumors all over again.

    I am really looking forward to Catching Fire…the cast is wonderful and I loved the series. Jennifer Lawrence and Philip Seymour Hoffman in the same film will be very cool.

  2. blue marie says:

    yeah, I’m not twihard-ing it or anything but I liked the first one well enough to see the second.

    and this is just a superficial compliant, I really dislike Jennifer’s shoes.

  3. Ninks says:

    Yes, still madly in love with Katniss. Seriously can’t wait for this movie (though I’m still feeling a little meh about Sam Claflin, but I’ll wait to actually see the movie before I judge him.)

    The best thing about the pictures with Liam Hemsworth, is how badly the Joshifer shippers are handling them.

  4. psb says:

    Yes! I’m so excited! Catching Fire is my favorite of the three and the trailer was amazing so I have high hopes. Plus I’m always here for some JLaw! <3

  5. A says:

    Is it weird that she doesn’t look like a teen or early twenties to me? She looks more mature even though she still acts her age. Her face is very unique in a way. She looks like Renee Zellweger.

  6. Spooks says:

    Maybe she’ll break up with Nicolas for the promotion of this film like she did for SLP.

  7. Chinoiserie says:

    I honestly do like the fist movie and Katniss´s character in it more than the books and book Katniss. First time ever, usually I always prefer the book. I am excited for this.

  8. ray says:

    SO excited for this film, i adore jennifer ! she can do no wrong. also i have a slightly shameful crush on that douche liam hemsworth :(

  9. kmn says:

    Excited for this! But damn, they’re filming mockingjay already? She’s been filming movies non stop. Does she ever sleep?

    • Migdalia says:

      They’re apparently filming Mockingjay back to back then there’s promotion for American Hustle, Serena, XMen, not to mention awards season….plus she has a couple more films on her slate on imdb. Sheesh….it’s going to be another long while before she gets a break. I get just working and working and working because your young and there’s plenty of time to chill. But she will burn herself out early.

      • Pastyousayyouneverknew says:

        I really hope she’s able to take small breaks in between because that is way too much to have going on, I get that she’s young, she loves what she does, she’s good at it and she doesn’t have kids or anything but that is A LOT for anyone to handle.

  10. Liz says:

    Looking forward to Catching Fire, Jennifer Lawrence is very talented.

  11. MisJes says:

    I cannot wait to see Catching Fire, it was my favourite book of the series, the stills look AMAZING and I adore Jennifer Lawrence.

    And does anyone have an I.D. on the sandals she’s wearing in the second last picture? I want!

  12. Mia 4S says:

    Love it, love her. Even if I didn’t I’d support it for being one of the few female driven franchises where the female is not an idiot. Yes I’m looking at you Twilight and 50 Shades.

  13. daisychain says:

    Very much looking forward to Catching Fire!. I’m a huge fan of Jennifer Lawrence and The Hunger Games books. I can’t wait to see the arena….should be cool!.

  14. Deb says:

    Every time I think of Sam Clafin playing Finnick I want to hurl. Otherwise yep very much looking forward to Catching Fire. Love me some JLaw

  15. pretty says:

    NO!! I love her but she is so NOT Katniss.
    If you read the book, Katniss constantly reminds the readers how she is so small that she can climb trees so well and she can dangle from the thinnest branch possible.
    She is above the average height. And with Josh Hutcherson as Peeta, they have the weirdest chemistry ever on screen. Like.. they look like sister and brother (lawrence being the older sister..) i think Josh is great for Peeta and they should’ve cast a girl with small frame and at least a girl who’s shorter than josh!

  16. pretty says:

    oh and i just finished the Divergent series. i saw some people comparing Katniss to Beatrice on this site so i started reading it and i think Beatris is also a great role model for young girls. i even prefer Divergent series to hunger games series. it was so good!

  17. RHONYC says:

    *mushes JL to the right to get a better look at Keanu*

    wth is 47 Ronin??? KeKe looks dead sexy! :-P

    *twirls off to youtube for trailer* ;-)

  18. Bronte says:

    Yes!!, my daughter and I are seeing Catching Fire together…I think Jennifer Lawrence is a terrific Katniss (I think she’s a marvelous actress period). The film also has gathered together a great supporting cast as well. So, yeah, very excited for the film.

  19. Lucy says:

    What kind of question is that?! Of course I love her, always and forever. One of the greatest heroines of out time. And JLaw being the one who portraits her is a bonus!

  20. ZoZo says:

    Oh yeah!. Love The Hunger Games Series, love Jennifer Lawrence. Absolutely looking forward to Catching Fire!.

  21. GlimmerBunny says:

    SO excited for Catching Fire!!! I’m literally counting down the days to the premiere :D

  22. Audrey says:

    They’d make a hot couple tbh. I always liked her chemistry with him.

    The keurig is the worst though. Makes the weakest coffe. I need 2-3 cups vs one of regular drip coffee

  23. Happy21 says:

    I love Katniss mostly because of my love for Jennifer Lawrence. I read the books so long ago I’m kind of over the hype but I’ll see the movie and I’ll enjoy it I”m sure.
