J.Law credits THIS character for inspiring her recent essay!

It was only a couple weeks ago that Jennifer Lawrence penned an essay exposing her feelings on gender pay inequality in Hollywood.

Since then, she's received public support from co-stars for bravely speaking out on the issue — though not everyone has been as willing!

So when it comes down to what inspired J.Law to bravely voice her opinions, the answer she revealed at a recent press conference for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 2 isn't so surprising.

It was all Katniss Everdeen!

The actress explained:

"I don't see how I couldn't be inspired by this character. I mean I was so inspired by her when I read the books – it's the reason I wanted to play her. So I think it would be impossible to go four years with this character and not be inspired by her."

Well, we think K.E. would be proud!

Girl is always doing what's right, and clearly Lawrence is taking after her!
