'Hunger Games' star Jennifer Lawrence: 'I'm a massive fan too'
Though, physically, Jennifer doesn't look much like the way Katniss is described in the books, director Gary Ross and author Suzanne Collins have spoken out in defense of their casting decision.
"She's incredibly powerful, brave, and tough--and yet she has a tenderness and complexity," Jennifer says. "It was very humbling hearing that Suzanne and Gary feel that I embody those traits."
It's not surprising that Lawrence can be girly and tough -- she's been that way for years. "I was a cheerleader for six years, but I also have this totally competitive side. I'll wrestle anyone at any time," she says. "I was the manliest cheerleader. I had the lowest voice."
