On March 23, Jennifer Lawrence will bring one of the most intriguing, tough-minded, well-written young heroines to the big screen in The Hunger Games.
So you can imagine our surprise when the actress, in a featured interview with this month's Parade, compared Katniss Everdeen to one of the least interesting, most wooden and rarely-dressed individuals out there, Kim Kardashian.
Why do you think so many people relate to the books, the magazine asked the rising star? Replied Lawrence:
“I was watching the Kardashian girl getting divorced, and that’s a tragedy for anyone. But they’re using it for entertainment, and we’re watching it. The books hold up a terrible kind of mirror: This is what our society could be like if we became desensitized to trauma and to each other’s pain.”
Hear that, people?!? Continue to tune in to E! every week on Sunday nights and we'll soon be sending our teenagers out to kill each other all in the name of sport! Just something to consider.
With just days until the biggest premiere of the year, check out the official Hunger Games trailer now!
