Yesterday, during her first day off in forever, 21-year-old Jennifer Lawrence took an afternoon jaunt to meet-and-greet the 400-or-so fans literally camped out (as in tents) outside LA's Nokia Theatre in anticipation of tonight's premiere for "The Hunger Games."
According to the Los Angeles Times, the actress seemed pretty game.
"I knew people were camping out, and I couldn't not come," said Lawrence, who might be bigger than Jesus and Mickey Mouse combined after playing Katniss Everdeen. "When the first 'Harry Potter' came out, I would have camped out -- absolutely. By the time I was 13, I had read the book three times. If I grew up in England, I would have been that person."
Other "Hunger Games" stars coming to check out the sights/smells of a mob of fans living off pizza and popcorn to catch this film included Amandla Stenberg, Alexander Ludwig and Isbelle Fuhrman, who portray Rue, Cato and Clove, respectively. One fan, 19-year-old Sutter, was one step away from getting Lawrence's signature before the actress peeled out in a black SUV.
"I'm pretty depressed. Now she's just gone," said Sutter, who wanted the poster signed as a gift to his girlfriend in Wisconsin. Weaksauce!
Fans wore mockingjay pins, "Team Peeta" shirts and dressed as some of their favorite characters from Suzanne Collins' phenomenal book series. Fans from TheHungerGames.net headed to "The Hob" campsite event, and they described the afternoon and its climactic celebrity.
"Our frowns were quickly turned upside down when Josh Hutcheron's bright and shining smile entered the compound. The fansites were lucky enough to have access to Josh before the line of fans were filed in. Josh was incredible kind and humble. He chatted about basketball and of course, Peeta Mellark. He was the perfect end to a perfect day."
