Jennifer Lawrence Talks Nicholas Hoult, Kristen Stewart & Lupita Nyong’o
If you’re a dedicated fan of The Hunger Games, then you should know that today marks a special occasion for the Girl on Fire — it’s her birthday! Yes, May 8 is the day Katniss Everdeen was said to be born in the Suzanne Collins book series. Coincidentally, the woman who brought the heroine to life on the big screen, Jennifer Lawrence, is giving fans exactly what they need on a day like today: new quotes!
The 23-year-old actress is Marie Claire‘s latest cover girl, and along with that comes a bunch of juicy tidbits about her real-life relationship with X-Men co-star Nicholas Hoult, her ‘feud’ with Kristen Stewart, her admiration for Lupita Nyong’o and more.

On the theory that she faked her (second) Oscars fall:
"I'm trying to do the right thing, waving to fans, trying to be nice, and there's a traffic cone. The second I hit it, I was laughing, but on the inside I was like, 'You're f*****. They're totally going to think this is an act...' But trust me if I was going to plan it, I would have done it at the Golden Globes or the SAGs. I would have never done it at two Oscars in a row. I watch Homeland — I'm craftier than that!"
