The Hunger Games is turning out to be one of the most eagerly anticipated films of the year, and fans are waiting to see how actress Jennifer Lawrence will fare in bringing main character Katniss to the big screen. If director Gary Ross’ excitement over the Oscar-nominee is any indication, moviegoers are in for a real treat.
“She is so good, it’s silly. Seriously, I just want to write her parents a thank-you letter for creating Jennifer Lawrence,” Ross gushed about his star. “Once a generation, you find this kind of talent.”
When Ross was asked which scenes featuring Lawrence were his favorites, he couldn’t pick just one.
“I’m not being coy in this answer; it’s really hard for me to say. The stuff she does in the tracker jacker sequence is incredible,” he said. “The stuff in the cave with Peeta, she’s just remarkable in there. Obviously, from the trailer, you’ve seen what she does in the Reaping, the commitment, and how about the little girl Willow [Shields], who plays Prim? The commitment Jen has, the bravery, the incredible control over what she’s doing, she’s just remarkable.”
