Jennifer Lawrence Was Unsure About Katniss Role.

Jennifer Lawrence reveals that she was unsure about taking on the role of Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games.

The popular novel comes to the big screen this week and there is a lot of hype and expectation surrounding the movie.

But Lawrence admits that she was a little skeptical that one of her favourite books would not be ruined when it was made into a film.

However upon meeting director Gary Ross she realised that the story was in safe hands.

Speaking to Moviefone the actress said: “When I read them, it was before there was any talk of the movie or anything, so I definitely didn’t picture myself.

“That would be slightly narcissistic, anyway. By the time there were talks of the movie, I was so turned off by the idea – because we’ve watched so many people destroy our favourite books [by turning them into movies].

“There was interest in me for it, so I had a meeting with Gary Ross, and just loved everything he was saying.

“I knew the movie was being made by people who are fans of the book and wanted to stay true to its story, and understood that it’s a sad story, not a cool action flick.”

The Hunger Games is set to be one of the biggest movies of 2012 and will make Lawrence an even bigger star.

The Hunger Games is released 23rd March.

Julia Roberts Wanted To Work With Tarsem Singh.

Julia Roberts has revealed that it was the chance to work with Tarsem Singh that was one of the big draws of Mirror Mirror.

The actress is set to play the Evil Queen in a re-telling of the well known story Snow White.

Singh is in the director’s chair for the movie, and Roberts admits that she is a big fan.

When asked by Movie Hole what it was about Mirror Mirror that made her want to take on the movie she said: “It was just Tarsem. I’m so crazy about that guy, there’s no two ways about it.

“He’s so remarkable and his point of view is so original and massive. I really just wanted to have lunch with him.

“I didn’t really care what we were going to talk about, you know, and then he spins his web and there’s no getting out of it.”

Mirror Mirror is the first role of Roberts since Harry Crowne last year and sees her star alongside Lily Collins and Armie Hammer.
