Their very first day on set together proved to be a nightmare that is literal, but after six years playing with sisters in The Hunger Games, Jennifer Lawrence and Willow Shields started to feel like real life family.
“That is an incredibly emotional scene, also it sorta breaks the ice immediately. After all, you are lying in bed together weeping.”
Luckily for the performer, who had been only 10 years old when she signed to play with Primrose Everdeen in the hit franchise, Lawrence was fast to alleviate the tension.
“Jen merely formed a slew of jokes, which made it a lot simpler,” she says. “She also was like, ‘It Is fine in the event you can not weep after like the 10th take – I can not either!’ So she was extremely sweet.”
Lawrence became a valuable mentor to the initial picture to Shields, as she grew up on set as well as their relationship evolved.
“We began with me being extremely young and her being like my big sister,” the actress explains.
Hanging around the old children made Shields feel like she was growing up quickly.
