Jennifer Lawrence is wowing audiences with her performance in “Silver Linings Playbook,” but at one point, Lawrence was worried that no matter what role she took, people would still see her as Katniss Everdeen from “The Hunger Games.”
According to Entertainmentwise.com, Lawrence told The Telegraph that she was worried “The Hunger Games” would spoil her career. “My biggest concern in taking on this franchise was that people wouldn’t be able to lose themselves in my other films–that they would only see Katniss.”
She also said that her role in “The Hunger Games” has caused her to be very careful about other roles she’s taken, including her role in “Silver Linings Playbook.” “I have definitely put a lot of thought into the movies I am doing that do come around ‘The Hunger Games.’ That’s why making a great film like ‘Silver Linings Playbook’ was so important.”
