People are desensitised to heartbreak: Jennifer Lawrence

London: `Hunger Games` star Jennifer Lawrence says she thinks the general public are too "desensitised" to heartbreak.

The 21-year-old Oscar-nominated actress, who plays the lead role of Katniss in `The Hunger Games` about a future world where teenagers are made to fight to the death, said she believes such things are comparable to the modern TV-viewing public.

"We all can`t wait to tune in to the new season of `The Kardashians` to watch a marriage be destroyed.

"That`s such a heartbreaking, terrible thing to happen to anybody and we tune in and watch it. We`re become more and more desensitised to the things we see on TV. That`s our entertainment: people suffering," she said.

Directed by Gary Ross, the film is set to hit theatres in March.
