Here is MTV‘s interview with Elizabeth Banks from the LA red carpet Hunger Games premiere last night!
“To me, the biggest star here is Suzanne Collins,” the actress and hard-core “Hunger Games” fan told MTV News about her feelings on the novel’s author. “She created this entire world, all of this pandemonium, all these characters. She birthed this whole situation. She couldn’t be a nicer lady. She’s the loveliest lady, and I’m a total geek around her. To me, she’s a total rock star.”
Just as many fans would kill for the chance to spend time with the “Hunger Games” cast, so too did Banks swoon over getting one-on-one time in with Collins.
“I’ve professed my love for her pretty much,” Banks laughed. “The books are done, and they’re the books, so she doesn’t need me to dissect them with her, but I’m very happy that she’s happy with the film. So to me, it was always about, ‘Let’s make director Gary Ross happy with the film, let’s make Suzanne happy. Everyone else, who cares.’ ”
Of course, Banks cares very much about the fans, a group she described as “unbelievable.”
“The passion of everyone here is crazy. It’s very exciting,” said Banks. “I’m very excited to see this movie with an audience. I saw it in a small room with two other people, so the energy in the room is going to be ballistically bananas. I brought tissues. It’s very emotional, this movie! I cried making it; It’s very emotional for me.”
As we all know last night was a big night in the Hunger Games world with the LA Premiere! Here is MTV‘s red carpet interview with Jennifer Lawrence.
“Was everybody disappointed that I wasn’t set on fire? God, that was a high, high bar to set. ‘Oh, darn it, she didn’t set herself on fire,’ ” she told MTV News’ Josh Horowitz. “That’s unfair. I don’t ever want to have to put myself on fire. Why am I constantly disappointing myself when I’m not putting my life in danger? That’s not right.”
Fans, or tributes as they call themselves, camped outside the Nokia Theater for hours just to get a glimpse of the stars of their most anticipated movie. As a thank you, Lawrence went to meet the fans earlier in the day. “It was incredible, such support,” Lawrence said. “It was the least I could do. It was so nice of them.”
But even with all the expectations of those fans and the pressure that comes with it, Lawrence insisted that she’s kept a pretty calm head through all of this. “You know me. I never fully absorb anything. I just get through the day,” she said.
A bit of a rude awakening for Lawrence, she told MTV News that she found out on the carpet from a different outlet that her training for the next film, “Catching Fire,” begins earlier than she expected. “I’ve just been told from E! that my training schedule starts in June,” she said. “I thought I had a couple months off. I guess not.”
But what lethal skills she’ll be taking on for her next appearance at Katniss Everdeen, Lawrence has yet to find out. “I don’t know. I have to go ask E! if I have to brush up on my bow or if we covered that last time or if I have to do agility again,” she said.
The cast of the Hunger Games movie came out looking their best and strutted their stuff for the black carpet premiere at Nokia Theatre L.A.
