We are EXTREMELY intrigued!
Last month, Lenny Kravitz opened up about his character in The Hunger Games, and he explained why wanted to play the role of Cinna.
Now, Lenny has opened up further about his role, and the man who inspired his performance!
Here's what he had to say about it:
"I actually have a friend who is a dancer who is bisexual, and he was a lot of inspiration for my speech pattern and my rhythm, and kind of the way I sauntered in and out a little bit."
And here's more from Lenny on his character's sexuality:
"I'll be quite frank with you — I didn’t know about Hunger Games — so when I'm telling kids and they say, 'Who are you playing?' and I say Cinna, they go, 'Oh you're playing the gay guy.' That was an actual answer. I've never brought that up yet. That's how they perceived it. So I thought about it, and I read the book and I don’t see that he is or isn't [gay]. He's a designer, he's a stylist, he has gold eyeliner—that doesn't mean anything either way."
"The question was how far do we go with him. The idea was to pull it back and create a character that's more like a Tom Ford or an Yves Saint Laurent so he wouldn’t be too outrageous. He's classic, he's got his gold. I kind of played him in the middle."
Thanks for sharing, Lenny! We can't wait to see ya on the big screen THIS WEEKEND!!!!!!!!!
