Los Angeles: Actress Jennifer Lawrence says she felt like an alien when she had to wear couture gowns for red carpet events post her Oscar nomination.
The 23-year-old, who ultimately won the best actress Oscar for "Silver Linings Playbook", says she feels very close to Katniss Everdeen, the character she essays in forthcoming movie "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire"
Lawrence says she has a strong connection with her character in terms of their personalities as well as the situations they have been through.
"It`s funny how Katniss and I have followed the same path," Lawrence said in a statement.
“When I was nominated at the Oscars, I had to go to fancy red carpet events wearing couture gowns, and I didn`t feel like myself, I felt like an alien, that`s what Katniss feels like in the first `Hunger Games` chapter, then in the second she gets used to this new life.
"She realizes she has to communicate with this new crowd and wear certain clothes, start wearing make-up... That`s kind of how I felt too," she added.
`The Hunger Games: Catching Fire` will release in India Dec 6 in English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
