Lawrence’s parents — her dad owned a construction business; the two now run a summer day camp-were initially less than thrilled with their daughter’s decision to become an actress.
When Lawrence was 14, she persuaded them to let her spend the summer in New York City going on auditions. As summer came to an end, her parents wanted her to come back home already. In the midst of their arguments, Lawrence happened to see a newspaper story about a boy from Kentucky starring in a new movie called Little Manhattan. “I was like, ‘Look, see? He’s from Kentucky and he made it’ I can do it too!’ And, weirdly, it helped them accept that this is what I wanted to do.”
That boy was Josh Hutcherson. In a nifty twist of fate, he’ll play Peeta, Lawrence’s favorite character from the Hunger Games trilogy.

my heart just got shreded
Probably a huge factor as to why she is so close with Josh. Talk about fate. How beautiful.
i caN’T BREATHE
NO OKAY I JUST REWATCHED THOR THE OTHER DAY AND WAS LIKE ‘WAIT. WAIT. AT THIS POINT LOKI HAS ALREADY GIVEN BIRTH AND GIVEN HIS SON TO HIS DAD TO RIDE AROUND NO OKAY EVERYTHING HE DOES FROM THIS POINT ON IS EXCUSED’
but i also had to wonder how he lost the baby weight.
“Dad, I asked you to BABYSIT HIM FOR A DAY. WHAT PART OF ‘BABYSIT’ TRANSLATES TO ‘RIDE HIM INTO A POTENTIAL BATTLE’? YOU ARE NOT THE WORLD’S BEST GRANDPA. I’M TAKING THAT COFFEE MUG AWAY FROM YOU.”
I’M TAKING THAT COFFEE MUG AWAY FROM YOU
“You said to babysit. I have taken the baby, and sat myself upon him. I do not understand your dismay.”
