Interview With The Cast of ‘Catching Fire’ – Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Sam Clafin, Liam Hemsworth, Jena Malone & More
The latest movie in The Hunger Games series, Catching Fire is one of the most anticipated releases of the year and is set to hit theaters on November 22nd. Lionsgate invited me to fly to Los Angeles to sit down with the entire cast, and to be honest, I learned an awful lot about everyone while I was there.
The interview happened the day after Jennifer Lawrence cut her hair so she chatted about that and even joked about wanting to shave her head. She also told me how she was a huge Harry Potter fan growing up and that she was “devastated” when she didn’t get her letter from Hogwarts. Josh Hutcherson told me about his love for N Sync and Joey Fatone… ok, Jennifer kind of made him say it.
Probably the funniest and most unexpected moment came when Woody Harrelson realized for the first time that Liam Hemsworth and Chris Hemsworth are brothers… no seriously, he had no idea. Jena Malone opened up about her naked scene in the movie, telling a funny story about how they were shooting in a hotel and people there got somewhat of a free show in between takes. And Sam Clafin discussed how difficult it was to do an American accent for the movie and also how he wanted to be a professional soccer player as a kid, but a broken ankle led him into acting.
We also talked about which scene they were most excited to film after reading the book and much more. Take a look at the entire interview to see it all!
