The first image from Catching Fire has been released today courtesy of Entertainment Weekly, and an exclusive interview with the cast and director have also been released along with the new Catching Fire EW cover.
In the interview, Jennifer Lawrence discusses her role in two major blockbusters and talks about her tendency to blurt out things that are not publicist approved, saying, “ “It’s almost like I subconsciously don’t want to work anymore so I’m trying to ruin my career.” She adds, “I’m so aware of all the b.s. that surrounds Hollywood and how everyone gets on this high horse and thinks that they’re curing cancer and it makes me so uncomfortable every time I see it. So I go in the exact opposite direction and end up saying something like ‘I’m pregnant!’ when I’m in two franchises.”
She also talks about meeting the new director, Francis Lawrence, and the series new addition, Sam Claflin. On meeting Francis Lawrence, she says, “I spit egg inside his mouth when I was talking. Into his mouth” and on meeting Sam Claflin, she says she hosted a party for the Catching Fire cast, adding, “When Sam walked in I was chasing Woody and we’d flipped over my couch and Woody had a sock all the way down my throat…”
Sam Claflin also talks about shooting the infamous sugar cube scene with Jennifer Lawrence, saying that it was, “the scariest moment of my life. I’m on Twitter and so many people have been like ‘Don’t mess this up, or we will kill you.’”
