There are at least 11 reasons to love Jennifer Lawrence.

And one big reason right now for her fans to hate MTV.

The network announced its 2014 MTV Movie Awards nominees last week and not only was Lawrence's Katniss Everdeen excluded from the Best Hero category... all females were left out!

The list includes Henry Cavill as Clark Kent; Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man; Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins; Chris Hemsworth as Thor; and Channing Tatum as John Cale.

These young women are markedly different, but both are such dolls.

Like Kate Middleton before her, The Hunger Games' Katniss Everdeen, as embodied by Jennifer Lawrence, has just been immortalized as a Barbie doll.

A Wedding Special

Barbie Katniss has more of a casual, rugged look - fitting, considering the maimed and bludgeoned tweens left in her wake as she fights for survival.

No point in getting blood stains on an Alexander McQueen dress, which Kate's likeness wears to perfection. Middleton wields a tiara, Katniss a bow and arrow!

Jennifer Lawrence bares every emotion possible in The Hunger Games: fear, confidence, exuberance, sadness.

She also bared her naked body the first time she met Zoe Kravitz, whose father stars in the blockbuster film as fashion guru Cinna.

“I’d met her a few times, and she was like, ‘You should come over and we’ll hang out,'" Zoe tells Rolling Stone. "So I go over to her apartment, and she opens the door in a towel. She’s like, ‘Come in, sorry, you’re early, I was about to shower.’ And she drops her towel and gets in the shower, and starts shaving her legs, totally naked. She was like, ‘Are we here yet? Is this OK?’ And I was like, ‘I guess we’re there!’”

Lawrence apparently made quite the first impression on two others associated with the movie, too. Says Woody Harrelson of their initial meeting:

“I was on my bus, and on my bus I have a yoga swing. Jennifer comes on, and she goes, ‘Hi, Woody, I’m J— is that a sex swing?’ Her first sentence to me.”

And then there's this tale from Josh Hutcherson:

"When I got cast, she called me up for one of those five-minute 'Excited to work with you, blah, blah, blah' things. The conversation started with her saying, 'Think about a catheter going in – ouch!' and then turns into a 45-minute rant about zombies and the apocalypse."

Jennifer Lawrence is everywhere these days. In Hollywood, on the cover of Parade, in the Arena fighting for her life.

Well, the latter will take place on March 23 when The Hunger Games opens nationwide.

In anticipation and promotion of that monumental event, the Oscar nominee has been traveling the globe, premiering the film in various locales. She stopped by both London and Paris this week, donning a very different style dress each time.

Compare them here and decide: Which do you prefer? The gold gown or the backless black?

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.

The world was watching L.A. Live last night, as cast members and their loved one descended on Tinseltown for the world premiere of The Hunger Games.

With the release of this blockbuster scheduled for March 23, and lines for midnight showings already starting to form, stars such as Jennifer Lawrence chatted with reporters and posed for pictures before going inside and watching themselves bring Suzanne Collins' novel to life on the big screen.

The woman behind Katniss Everdeen stunned in a backless gold gown, but was she shown up on the red carpet by the girlfriend of a castmate? Possibly, when that girlfriend is Miley Cyrus. Compare looks below and vote on your favorite.

I think I was [Team] Gale until he started getting a little too trigger-happy. Or maybe first Peeta and then Gale or Gale, then Peeta? I went back and forth. I flip-flopped.

So says Jennifer Lawrence in the latest issue of Seventeen, underscoring just how difficult it is for fans of The Hunger Games to decide between Gale and Peeta, the two young men right smack in the middle of Katniss Everdeen's dangerous life.

Totally Together

But decide Katniss and company must, as Liam Hemsworth takes on the key role of Gale in the upcoming big screen adaption and Josh Hutcherson plays Peeta.

Rewatch The Hunger Games trailer now to familiarize yourself with these two and then choose a side:

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!"

You've seen them on magazine covers, but are you ready to get a look at Katniss and Peeta inside The Hunger Games themselves?

Two new photos have emerged online from the set of the March 2012 blockbuster, one featuring Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss and the other of Josh Hutcherson as Peeta. It's safe to assume both of these images are courtesy of the titular, death-defying contest itself:

Josh Hutcherson? He has brown hair.

Liam Hemsworth? The guy who dated Miley Cyrus?!?

These were the reactions many readers of The Hunger Games had upon learning who would portray Peeta and Gale in the movie version of these books. But co-star Jennifer Lawrence can ease the concerns of any hesitant fans.

"Josh is so charming,” the woman behind Katniss tells Entertainment Weekly. “And when you read in the books about Peeta being able to manipulate anybody - I mean Josh could get, well, I don’t know a metaphor for [this scenario] except for dirty ones. But he’s charming, he’s sweet, he’s down to earth, he’s normal. He embodies all of it and brings it all to Peeta.. he’s got all of these great qualities and every single one of them come across in every line he says out loud as Peeta.”
