London: Actress Jennifer Lawrence says she doesn`t diet because she would rather exercise to stay in shape.
The 21-year-old star of forthcoming movie `The Hunger Games` said that while she loves to hit the gym, she does not enjoy depriving herself of food, reported Showbizspy.
"I hate saying, `I like exercising`. I want to punch people who say that in the face. But it`s nice being in shape for a movie, because they basically do it all for you. It`s like, `Here`s your trainer. This is what you can eat`. I don`t diet. I do exercise! But I don`t diet. You can`t work when you`re hungry, you know?," Lawrence said.
The actress plays the lead role of Katniss Everdeen in the first installment of `The Hunger Games` trilogy, and admits she is worried about the fame the role will undoubtedly bring.
"I feel like I got a ticket to go to another planet and I`m moving there and there`s no turning back, and I don`t know if I`m going to like that other planet or have friends there.
It`s daunting. The people who used to ignore me at parties, now they`re nice to me and kissing my ass. But nobody`s staked outside of my house," she said.
