Jennifer Lawrence is Katniss Everdeen

She may think she was the wrong girl for the role, but the world begs to disagree.

Jennifer Lawrence is hot as Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games.

Jennifer Lawrence told David Letterman Tuesday that she and her brothers used to roughhouse a lot growing up.

“I’ve got scars all over my body. The best part—they would fight each other over who could fight me,” Jennifer Lawrence said.

Sounds like Jennifer Lawrence has been preparing for a role as Katniss Everdeen her entire life.

Jennifer Lawrence will bring Katniss Everdeen to life this weekend in the premier of The Hunger Games. Katniss is a hunting, tomboyish 16 year-old girl who wields Diana’s bow and can kill a squirrel with an arrow through the eye… Not to mention a fellow Tribute in The Hunger Games.

Jennifer Lawrence has been praised for playing Katniss as if the character has no future, and throughout the film it is unclear whether or not she does. Jennifer Lawrence manages a sincere look of terror as she enters the Capitol on chariot, and the anger with which she shoots an arrow just to stick it to the 1% is palpable.

Fans have cheered and applauded at the screenings of The Hunger Games so far, but Jennifer Lawrence is convinced that she wasn’t the right girl to play Katniss Everdeen.

“I am a troll. I hate myself. I think the movie is great, but their biggest mistake was casting me,” Jennifer Lawrence told David Letterman.

Well Jennifer Lawrence may hate herself, but the rest of America seems to love her. This weekend she’ll go down in cinematic history as “the girl on fire” and she’s just going to have to deal with all the love.
