I stood next to Jennifer Lawrence for nine months as an actress watching another actress and I stood by her as Cressida watching Katniss, looking at her lead a rebellion. “Katniss doesn’t have any ego and neither does Jennifer. The reason why she’s so compelling to an audience is because she’s true to herself and doesn’t suffer the bullshit or superficial elements. …. That’s why people look up to her. She’s a great role model. So is Katniss. She can’t comment on that herself, because by the nature of her personality, she’s incapable.” —- Natalie Dormer
Nothing’s sacred anymore. Those girls and I got so close. They were painting me naked every day for months. It was kind of like going to a really bizarre sleepover. It’s what you guys imagine we do: One naked girl and seven pairs of hands all over her.
I guess my main worry is that people will start hating what I hate about myself. I worry that everybody will think I am really annoying and just want me to shut up. Which would make so much sense because I annoy myself… I guess I want people to know that if they are annoyed with me, I get it, it’s totally cool. Please forgive me.
“Because I feel normal I expect to be treated normally and I’m trying to be being patient with the fact that that’s not exactly how everybody else feels. When I’m at the dentist getting my teeth cleaned people are standing looking through the door. And I’m like, ‘What would you do if someone was staring at you while you were getting your teeth cleaned?’ So it’s a work in progress. When I meet young fans I understand them because I was like that too, but it’s the real life day-to-day run-ins with people who sometimes don’t really know how to act that make me feel weird, and I don’t like it”
And when I’m on set, I’m just thinking about the script and of working. I think I’ve stayed focused on the work so much that I haven’t really noticed my life start to change except for I’ve gotten busier.
