Wait, What?! Jennifer Lawrence Almost Said No To Playing Katniss
If there’s one thing that we learned from Hollywood, it’s that starring in a mega franchise = huge, instant fame. Um, hello, Kristen Stewart! So when we found out that Jennifer Lawrence, who snagged the lead of Katniss in The Hunger Games, almost turned down the coveted part that pretty much every single young actress in Hollywood tried out for, we were confused. But nope. It’s true.
Jennifer told Entertainment Weekly…
That when she was offered the role:
“I knew that as soon as I said yes, my life would change. And I walked around an entire day thinking ‘It’s not too late, I could still go back and do indies, I haven’t said yes yet, it’s not too late. But I love this story, and if I had said no, I would regret it every day.”
Um, ya think?! We’re so glad Jennifer stuck with it. Besides, she looks gorgeous as a brunette, don’tcha think?!
