One of the biggest changes between 2012’s The Hunger Games and this year’s Catching Fire? The budget for filming the movie — it went from $78 million to over $130 million, which means that we’re expecting to see some pretty awesome special effects when the movie hits theaters Friday.
What else has gotten bigger since the last movie? According to what her castmates said in a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, leading lady Jennifer Lawrence, in reference to the size of her britches.
When we first saw Jennifer on screen as Katniss Everdeen, she was relatively unknown in Hollywood. But almost instantly, Jen went from The Girl on Fire to The Girl with An Oscar, and less than two years later, she’s become a household name.
So has her overnight rise to fame affected her ego? No, but it doesn’t mean her castmates aren’t going to make fun of her anyway.
“Jen — you can hardly talk to her,” Woody Harrelson (Haymitch) said. “You can’t talk to her directly or look her in the eye.”
“I’m not really going to call you J-Law, am I? Because that’s ridiculous.” Liam Hemsworth (Gale) added.
We’re glad to hear her massive success hasn’t changed Jennifer, because we love her just the way she is — awkward celebrity encounters and inappropriate storytelling and all.
