Los Angeles: Actress Jennifer Lawrence, who is awaiting the release of her forthcoming movie “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1”, said that she has many similarities between her own life and that of her character in the film.
Lawrence compared her character (Katniss Everdeen) who struggle to deal with her new found fame, with that of her own life when she started being recognised for her talent, reports bangshowbiz.com.
"I remember reading the first books, and when I read them I was going through my first awards season for 'Winter's Bone' and I'd never experienced anything like that. Just being put in dresses that are uncomfortable and looking not like myself and everyone's listening to you and you're like, 'Don't listen to me, I'm 20!' And then growing into it in a way.
"I feel like there were a few parallels having people look at you and listen to you at a young age when you don't really feel ready, and forcing yourself, thinking, 'People are listening to me so what should I say?'," she said.
Directed by Francis Lawrence, the film is set to release Nov 21.
