    Everyone keeps saying she looks too old, but seriously have you read the books? Katniss is like the mother of her family! She has to take care of them because her mother is too depressed to do anything. You couldn't have some nonexperienced immature 16 year old play Katniss. Just saying guys you need to calm down, I think she's perfect!

    i dont understand why everybody has to make a huge deal over it. i think she's perfect for the part. and yes, everybody has their own opinions that they are entitled to, but calm it down a couple hundred notches. jeez.

    She's perfect! I'm not suprise at all, her as a "Katniss Everdeen". I already watch The Hunger Games! and its so cool... I really love it!
    I dont care who will be the Katniss Everdeen but I care about how she will act as Katniss but I'm not dissapointed at all cause I think she's suits to be Katniss.

    I like her but, your kidding right? Look,
    she may be a "great" actress and all but
    her as Katniss? No! This is the worst thing
    ever to happen in human history!!

    Just saying I over react alot

    Why? Why Jennifer Lawrence? I have nothing against her, but she does not seem right for Katniss, Johanna maybe, but not Katniss. I would have loved to see someone younger and darker take on Katniss's role.

    I feel she looks a little too mature for the role. What makes the book is that Katniss is young (ie innocent) and combine that with the violence, it makes a greater contrast - KIDS killing each other. With someone older, it plays out more like an action flick with less substance.

    I bothers me quite a bit that they chose her. I dont have anything against the way she looks, I mean she is beautiful and everything. But, that is not the way Katniss looks and I don'tthink that Hollywood is trying to be racist or anything, they just chose the wrong actress. Looks wise anyway. She must be a good actress or they wouldnt have picked her

    That's not Katniss. Thats not Katniss at all. So disappointed.

    I have no problem with her acting - she's very good but in my eyes, she isn't right for the role. I can't imagine her as Katniss and I wish that another actress got it.

    Whats the matter with you people? You havent even given her a chance! Do you really think they arent going to change what she looks like? They aren't being racist, they chose the best actress for the part. Have you even read some of Suzanne Collins' interviews? She clearly says that she thinks that Jennifer is perfect for the part. THE AUTHOR said that. So give her a chance!
