Jennifer Lawrence Compares Reality TV Like Kardashians to ‘The Hunger Games’


Jennifer Lawrence keeps it simple in black at the Paris premiere of The Hunger Games.

Jennifer was joined by Liam Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson, Elizabeth Banks, and director Gary Ross at the Paris premiere and the UK premiere. Click inside for pics from both premieres.

Jennifer is featured in this weekend’s issue of Parade where she opens up about how our reality TV and society mirrors The Hunger Games and more.

What makes Katniss such a popular character?
“I love Katniss. She doesn’t have a lot, but she’s happy, and she faces death out of love for her family. She doesn’t want to be a hero, but she becomes the symbol for a revolution, a kind of futuristic Joan of Arc.”

Why do you think so many people relate to the books?
“I was watching the Kardashian girl getting divorced, and that’s a tragedy for anyone. But they’re using it for entertainment, and we’re watching it. The books hold up a terrible kind of mirror: This is what our society could be like if we became desensitized to trauma and to each other’s pain.”

Are you nervous about opening day?
“I’m always nervous. I always think this is going to be the end of my career. I’m going to have to go back to school and nobody’s ever going to want to see me again.”

The Hunger Games hits theaters March 23. Also below, watch the latest clip featuring Seneca Crane (Wes Bentley) and President Snow (Donald Sutherland).
