Jennifer Lawrence on her lack of preparation for Catching Fire

As Jennifer Lawrence is possibly the most in-demand actress in Hollywood right now, it should come as little surprise that she landed a spot in Total Film ’s Future 100: our preview of the hottest incoming movies, stars and trends.

Inside the brand new issue of Total Film magazine (available for only £1.99 on your iPad (opens in new tab) ), she tells us about her meteoric rise and blazing future, talking about everything from 'indies vs blockbusters', to her own acting methods.

Here’s an excerpt of what she had to say on The Hunger Games: Catching Fire , where the pressure of matching the predecessor seems to have caused her no panic:

“If possible, there was even less preparation because I was like, ‘I’ve done this before’,” she said. “We had a lot of the same crew. Josh [ Hutcherson ] and Liam [ Hemsworth ] were there. Normally, when I do a movie, I’m meeting people for the first time, so it was amazing to be able to have the same group of people. It was so fun."

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire opens in the UK on 22 November 2013.
