Jennifer Lawrence welcomes Hunger Games return

Jennifer Lawrence is “totally” open to return to ‘The Hunger Games’.

The 32-year-old actress became a household name after portraying Katniss Everdeen in all four movies in the franchise – which were released between 2012 and 2015 – and she admitted she’d be delighted to ask to reprise the role once again.

Asked about the possibility during a Zoom interview with Variety, she said: “Oh, my God – totally! If Katniss ever could ever come back into my life, 100 percent.

“My producing partner just clutched her heart.”

In November, a prequel movie, ‘The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes’, will be released but Jennifer is not part of the cast.

But the actress can next be seen in ‘No Hard Feelings’ as a 32-year-old Uber driver who is hired by a wealthy couple to seduce their 19-year-old son to help him gain confidence before heading off to college in exchange for a car.

And when her younger co-star, 21-year-old Andrew Barth Feldman was asked if he remembered seeing Jennifer in ‘The Hunger Games’ for the first time, she joked: “You probably weren’t even born.”

But the actor heaped praise on the Oscar-winning star’s performance.

He said: “I was probably about 10 years old. I read the books and then the movies came out and it was a phenomenon. I watched them recently just for fun and I did text [Jennifer] when it was happening.

“Those movies are so good. That whole genre didn’t exist yet. Nor did we know that genre of film incorporate such a huge and truthful and beautiful performance from Jen.”

His co-star quipped: “I can’t believe you could read when you were 10.”

Jennifer Lawrence Explained Why She Wore Flip-Flops On The Red Carpet, And Yeah, The Answer Wasn’t What I Expected

“I’m all for making a statement. I just would want it to be on purpose.”

At Cannes this year, Jennifer Lawrence made headlines when she stepped out onto the red carpet — but it wasn’t for the reason that you would think.

It was because underneath her gorgeous red-hot Christian Dior couture gown her footwear of choice, to everyone’s surprise, was a pair of…flip-flops.

Considering how outspoken Jennifer is, naturally, people thought she was making a statement about the festival’s antiquated requirement of having women wear high heels for red-carpet screenings

Festival organizers have confirmed in the past that this is “obligatory” for all women.

Jennifer clarified that she wasn’t making a statement.

Her shoes were “too big.”, adding

“I was not making a political statement, not that I wouldn’t. I had no idea until it, like, came out that there was a whole controversy with people wearing flats, or like, walking down the red carpet barefoot. I had no clue. My shoes were a size too big.”
