Thinking she was being robbed, Lawrence grabbed her weapon, which she’d been training with earlier, and went inside to defend her property.
‘And I look, and my patio doors were open, and there were guys working right there, and I was like, ‘Heyyy, how you doin’?”
Her friends joked after the embarrassing moment that they’d like to see her use the weapon for real someday.
‘They were like, ‘We’ve got to stage someone to break into your house and you can kill them!’ That would be the funniest news ever. Katniss Everdeen actually kills someone with a bow and arrow!’” — Jennifer Lawrence, to Vanity Fair, as previewed by the Hollywood Reporter.
There’s something in me that feels bad for loving everything about Jennifer Lawrence, knowing that she was reluctant to take the role of Katniss because she knew it would catapult her into the level of stardom where people well, know everything about you. But I can’t help it. And were I to ever meet her, I would probably react just like she says later in the article about not having the courage to talk to Meryl Streep:
“I literally put my hand right in Bill Maher’s face and said, ‘Not now, Bill!,’ and I just stared at Meryl Streep. I just creepily stared at her.”
