For 'X-Men' I was lifting a lot of weights. I actually lost a lot of mass when I quit"X-Men" because I was working out so much and very muscular and strong.
I couldn't be happier about being a part of 'Hunger Games' and to play Katniss. I have a huge responsibility to the fans of this incredible book and I don't take it lightly. I will give everything I have to these movies and to this role to make it worthy of Suzanne Collins' masterpiece.
I've done archery for about six weeks, and rock climbing, tree climbing - and combat, running and vaulting. But also yoga and things like that, to stay catlike!
Anytime you're away from your home filming, it messes with your head.
I don't know if this is why everything has worked so well and I'm not sure I'd recommend this kind of thinking to anyone else, but I've always known I'd be successful in acting. I have certainly worked for it.
It was like pulling teeth trying to get me to L.A. I hated it for so long, but now I've got this great life here.
I never felt like I completely, 100% understood something so well as acting.
I'm still getting used to everything. It still makes me a little emotional, just to see how quickly everything kind of changes -- that it changes so fast.
My parents saw me so truly happy that they sacrificed everything for my happiness. Without my family, I would be nothing.
