The Hunger Games in Vanity Fair Picture

See The Hunger Games Cast in Vanity Fair!

Next March, we'll watch as the cast of The Hunger Games will hunt each other until the death, but for now you can see a few notable tributes, including Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, and Liam Hemsworth, posed for a spread in Vanity Fair. The cute cast looks decidedly rested, well fed, and not like they want to kill each other at all. It's a stark contrast to their characters, who'll get down to hand-to-hand combat in the arena. Lawrence and Hutcherson also had a few things to say about the books and their characters:

  • Lawrence, on her character: “Katniss is an incredible character: she’s a hunter but not a killer, a 16-year-old who’s being forced into the arena. These kids are killing one another only because if they don’t they’ll die. It’s heartbreaking.”
  • Hutcherson, on shooting and his costar: “I literally read all three books over the course of five days. My mind was blown by how much I felt I was like Peeta. We shot in the forest near Asheville, North Carolina — a lot of fight scenes, very physically demanding. Jennifer and I totally hit it off. We’re both crazy people — we don’t hold anything back.”
