JENNIFER Lawrence is wishing good-bye to The Hunger Games, the extremely popular fantasy franchise that made her a megastar and Hollywood action heroine that is rare.
Lawrence is back as bow-and-arrow badass Katniss Everdeen leading her rebels deeper into the battle against injustice in their own dystopian world in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 2, opening throughout the earth November 18-20.
The series, adapted from the teen novels of Suzanne Collins, tells the narrative of Everdeen’s battle to endure in a reality TV-style life-and-death game in a post apocalyptic future state.
In the The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 1 of last year Suzanne not only fought for her life, but became the symbol.
In the ending, she attempts to direct the rebellion against the totalitarian government.
Lawrence said it took her a while to adapt to her new life in the spotlight amid the enormous “Hunger Games” success — as well as the pressure that accompanied it.
Fans the world over have embraced “The Hunger Games” since the very first movie came out in 2012, with all the franchise passing the billion dollar mark in the box office.
The blockbusters have gone down in history for having a female heroine directing the fight.
But “it’s likely too soon to have the ability to look back and reflect” to the impact the films have had on the public, Lawrence said.
As for Lawrence? “I trust I’ve grown up,” added the star, who won an Oscar for her role in the 2012 comedy Silver Linings Playbook.
Lawrence also addressed a recent essay that was stark for an online feminist newsletter where pay inequality between the sexes blasted.
She went to confess she had failed to tackle the issue from fear of being labelled “hard” or “spoiled”.
Lawrence, who topped Forbes magazine’s 2015 list of best-paid actresses said Saturday that she loves what she does for a living.
“Seriously, it’s a job,” she said, recognizing that “individuals will own opinions.” “Lawrence truly love acting, so I really just think of myself as a working girl,” she added.
