Jennifer Lawrence: Co-stars' first impressions involve nudity and zombies
In the magazine, which hits newsstands on Friday, March 30, Lawrence's co-stars weigh in on their first impressions of her. She's already famous for her talk show candor and somewhat clumsy frankness, so it comes as little surprise that she doesn't hold much back when she's making a new friend.
Fans of Lawrence are already well-versed on her first meeting with "Hunger Games" mentor Woody Harrelson. "I was on my bus," he says, "and on my bus I have a yoga swing. Jennifer comes on, and she goes, 'Hi, Woody, I'm J-- is that a sex swing?' Her first sentence to me."
No surprise there. With on-screen love interest Josh Hutcherson, a perfunctory congratulations phone call turned into a long, involved diatribe. "When I got cast, she called me up for one of those five-minute 'Excited to work with you, blah, blah, blah' things. The conversation started with her saying, 'Think about a catheter going in - ouch!' and then turns into a 45-minute rant about zombies and the apocalypse," he recalls.
Lawrence worked with Zoë Kravitz in "X-Men: The First Class," and now they're besties -- which helped Lawrence forge the strong connection with Lenny Kravitz' character in the film. But the first time Zoë stopped by Lawrence's house, she got an eyeful. "I'd met her a few times, and she was like, 'You should come over and we'll hang out.' So I go over to her apartment, and she opens the door in a towel. She's like, 'Come in, sorry, you're early, I was about to shower.' And she drops her towel and gets in the shower, and starts shaving her legs, totally naked. She was like, 'Are we here yet? Is this OK?' And I was like, 'I guess we're there!'"
