The stars of the flick — Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, and Liam Hemsworth — were honored on Saturday as the 289th, 290th, and 291st people to leave their imprint at the iconic TCL Chinese Theatre in El Lay.
That’s quite the way to spend Halloween, if you ask us!
The movie franchise, which releases The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 on November 20, served as a major turning point for J. Law’s career. The 25-year-old has released an impressive 12 films since the first installment in 2012.
In case you forgot, that was just three years ago!
Needless to say, the actress doesn’t have much down time. At a press conference for the event over the weekend, the Silver Linings Playbook star shared:
“I try to keep working so people can see other characters and other things I can do instead of taking vacation time, and now I’m aging like a president. I hate waking up without a goal or going to sleep without achieving anything.”
“I remember there have been a few times where I would have loved time off. But I was very aware of how overwhelming these movies and this character was, and that was a big fear of mine signing on to these movies … I want people to be able to lose themselves when they’re watching a movie and not see the same character.”
When it comes to being famous, the Kentucky native said it took some getting used to:
“Your entire world changes. Now it’s very easy for me because I’m isolated. I have a new normal now. I feel very stable, and normal, and happy, but it took a few years to get used to being looked at differently. It’s kind of an alienating feeling … You don’t feel different but everyone reacts to you differently. It was a few years of getting used to it. Then it was ‘OK, let’s get back to work’ and people react and can do whatever they want. That’s fine and it’s on them. I have a job. That’s how I think of it.”
What an impressive few years! Good for her!
