Jennifer Lawrence ushers in the sunshine in bright eye-popping yellow on the May cover girl for Teen Vogue.
The 20 year-old actress who won the coveted part of Katniss Everdeen in the big screen adaptation of The Hunger Games, spoke to the magazine about landing the role and the fans reactions to her.
“The cool thing about Katniss is that every fan has such a personal relationship with her, and they understand and know her in a singular way,” Jennifer says. “I’m a massive fan too, so I get it.”
Lawrence said Katniss’ strength and edge is tempered with a softness and feels grateful for director Gary Ross & author Suzanne Collins‘ support.
“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.”
Before she gets to work on THG with newly cast costars Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth, Lawrence will be seen this summer as Mystique in X-Men First Class with rumored boyfriend Nicholas Hoult.
This issue of Teen Vogue is on newsstands now.

Liam Hemsworth is reading the script for The Hunger Games right now and the actor wants in.
The Australian actor spoke to MTV in Park City, Utah at the Sundance Film Festival and revealed he loves the “action, gritty kinda of stuff” that drives the story when asked about the Suzanne Collins series of books.
Hemsworth hasn’t met with director Gary Ross but does feel he will have a sit down with the director in the near future. “I mean it’s pretty early right now, but, yeah, I’m sure I’ll meet on it soon.”
The Last Song actor’s name is being tossed in the ring for the role of Peeta, however unless they’ve cast Katniss and are keeping it a secret, they are no where near casting the role of District 12′s male tribute.
What do you think of the possibility of Hemsworth in The Hunger Games?
