just had to quote the hunger games

I was the star of The Hunger Games, so I had a lot of 12-year-olds and 11-year-olds who I know look up to me and are listening to me and watching me. And when the election happened, I couldn’t help but think of those girls who were 18. I completely understand when people say, ‘Just shut up and act.’ But for me there are times where I feel a real need to speak to those girls.

out of context quotes from my group : the starters pack.

- It came to mind you don’t have silly nickname yet .We need to provide immediately.

- I’m your new mother now.

me in early 2011, having just finished reading the hunger games books (quoted from the ancient chronicling method known as livejournal): Confession time here: I always kind of wanted to ship Effie with Haymitch. Oh, OF COURSE I did. When they were all prepping back in The Hunger Games and he was all gross and drunk all the time and she was all pristine and prissy and orderly! It had potential, okay!

me today:

Jennifer [Lawrence] didn’t realise I was leaving. Everyone had to get in the trucks and drive somewhere else, so I went back to take off my Effie [Trinket, her character] make-up alone in the rain. Then I got a text from Jennifer saying, ‘Oh God, I just realised. I’m so sorry!’ Which is totally her, so great.

I’m a huge Jennifer Lawrence fan. I think I’ve been on record of saying that her and David O. Russell’s relationship is very William Wyler-Bette Davis like, and that’s a good thing to be like. And I can see her doing a good job with this role, so we went to talk about it and everything. She was just doing me a courtesy to see me, I think. She was doing Joy. She had to all this publicity on the Hunger Games movies. There was just no f—ing way in the world that she was available. Having said that, I’m glad I didn’t cast somebody that young. I think I absolutely positively made the right choice, as far as the ages of the characters.

I’m going to miss just being with everyone that much,“ he said. "We are all still close and see each other on a fairly regular basis. When you are filming, it’s 12 plus hours a day for months at a time. It’s kind of sad, because you had such a great time making them, now it’s coming to a close. But also, I think everyone is ready to move on to the next stages of their careers and lives and everything.

We had the script really early, and Jena was at the top of my list really, so I just texted her and emailed her about it and she right away was totally down. So she said, “Yes,” right away, which is really awesome to have your first choice say yes.
—  Josh Hutcherson, when asked ‘You’re having a “Hunger Games” reunion in the film. How did that come together?’ (x)
Jen and Josh know how to be professional in their scenes but have a lot of fun, But honestly, the majority of the jokes I can’t even say! But it was hilarious, and it made it so much fun. I grew up quickly in that sense too! – I think the first few movies, they tried to lay off the super inappropriate jokes and we even had a swear jar for a while. But after that, it was just like, ‘Oh, you’re 13 and a half. Whatever. You’re old enough now! You’re basically an adult!’

I adore Suzanne Collins for her bravery and her imagination, and everything that is the success of The Hunger Games, the genesis, it all comes from Suzanne. She wrote such a complex world and yet at the same time had so many scenes that deal with all the things we’re struggling with with our own time and zeitgeist. So I’m just a huge fan of Suzanne Collins and her writing, and I think Nina Jacobson and Francis Lawrence have both talked about this, but anything prequel, sequel, whatever would have to come from her and her penmanship. So the minute I know that Suzanne is writing something, then yes, my ears would prick up. Almost definitely.

I realized when I pulled up to work today that I had given myself a gift last week and caught up on all my work before I left for North Carolina so starting my Monday with no added stress is a good thing!

I think I might finally be over that ridiculous cough I had for the last week. It is nice to not have to constantly be eating cough drops and taking medicine just to get through the day.

We watched Mockingjay last night so now we’re all caught up on the Hunger Games series so Kev can go with me to see the last movie. We’ve also finished Harry Potter so I think the next thing on our list is for us to watch all the original Star Wars before the new one(He’s seen them all and can basically quote them word for word, it’s me who needs the movie education). We do have till Christmas for that so I think we’ll be good.

I packed my gym bag to be back at Joel’s class tonight! My laziness almost won but i figured it’s an early class so it’ll be good. Since I’m feeling better this week I’m hoping I can motivate myself to go upstairs and do some strength training before heading home.

Today is going to be a good day. No matter what Monday things may potentially happened I’m determined to make it a good day.

Definitely bittersweet. I’d say more bitter than sweet at the moment just because I miss it. It was a really great experience and we got to make something really cool and interesting and along the way met great people and had a great time making it, so sad to see it come to an end. But it’s also exciting because I’m moving on to other things and this Canon project is something I’ve been focused on a lot.

On the last day it was so emotional, and we kind of couldn’t let go of each other. We were kind of freaked out that something was ending. And then, a week later, we were hanging out at Liam’s house. We were like, “Oh, O.K., so now we can just be friends.” — After seeing that nothing really changed with the three of us — four, including Woody [Harrelson], but he lives in Hawaii, so it’s trickier — we were fine. I mean, this was yesterday: Woody texted me, and said he had a dream about me. And I was like, “Was I amazing?” And then Josh called me and told me he had a dream about Woody. And then my friend came over to my house and told me she had a sex dream about Liam. I didn’t dream about anyone, but there’s always tonight.
