London: Actress Jennifer Lawrence says she can relate to her ‘Hunger Games’ alter ego Katniss Everdeen because she understands how hard it can be getting recognised in public.

The 23-year-old actress was catapulted into the spotlight with her role as leading lady Katniss Everdeen in ‘The Hunger Games’.

In the film`s sequel ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’, Lawrence`s character fictional alter-ego also becomes famous in her hometown, reported Daily Mirror.

"There is the connection in that she doesn`t feel like she`s part of town anymore. Now everyone treats her like a celebrity.

"Whereas she still feels like she`s part of them. I get that a lot. I`ll go and get a coffee where I always get coffee and all of a sudden there`s this weird mood, and I`m like `Come on, I still get coffee here, just say hello`," Lawrence said.
