Jennifer Lawrence Covers 'Parade'

Jennifer Lawrence Covers 'Parade'

Jennifer Lawrence takes the cover of this weekend’s Parade magazine, available in your local newspaper.

The 21-year-old actress opened up about the reality of the books, crushing on Katniss and sprinting. Check it:

On her love for her 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.”

On her toughest day on set: “I had to do a scene running across a field, grabbing a backpack. There was no shade. It was just in this field of really tall grass and I had to sprint, and sprint, and sprint as fast as I could, five or six times. And then I had to get in this huge fight. I felt like I was in a car accident the next day.”

On why 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.”
