Jennifer Lawrence on The Hunger Games: Not Like Twilight!

by at . Comments

The comparisons were inevitable, but Jennifer Lawrence would like to stop them before they grow too loud.

"The Hunger Games is not Twilight," the actress, who plays the main role of Katniss Everdeen in this March 23 release, says in the latest issue of Vanity Fair. "It's really premature to say that it will be the same phenomenon."

The Hunger Games Cast

Lawrence stars in the movie alongside an impressive young cast, pictured above on set in North Carolina, that includes Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson. They round out the teen participants forced to compete to the death in the government-mandated Hunger Games.

"I'm so proud of the work we did on the film," Lawrence gushes. "[Director] Gary Ross and the entire cast and crew were amazing, and I can't wait for it to be brought to life because I think it's an important story. If it does become a crazy phenomenon, I'll soak up my freedom now!"
