It’s another interview in which she’s spoon-feeding her audience what it wants to hear: she’s normal, she’s just like them, she’s self-aware, she’s relatable. It’s glib and twee, but it’s a less-objectionable and pompous interview than the one she did for Glamour.
On her male co-stars: “Josh [Hutcherson] and Liam [Hemsworth] are really great friends too. They are hilarious and sweet. They are like my brothers. As soon as we all got together, we reverted back to being 13-year-olds. Josh and I were neighbors. Every time I would come in late, I would go and bang on the door and wake him up and we’d all hang out.”
On her body image: “I’m just so sick of these young girls with diets. I remember when I was 13 and it was cool to pretend to have an eating disorder because there were rumors that Lindsay Lohan and Nicole Richie were anorexic. I thought it was crazy. I went home and told my mom, ‘Nobody’s eating bread; I just had to finish everyone’s burgers.’ I think it’s really important for girls to have people to look up to and to feel good about themselves.”
Team Peeta vs Team Gale: “I think I was 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.”
The Hunger Games vs real life: “The Hunger Games is not that far off from real life. We are living in a world where we watch extreme sports shows where people get hurt or killed. It takes a lot to shock us.”
On her downtime: “When I’m not working, I love to just hang out with my friends and watch Real Housewives. My favorite cast used to be New Jersey, but now I’m really into Beverly Hills.”
On her childhood: “Growing up, I lived 15 minutes away from a horse farm, and I went there almost every day. My brothers were into fishing, but I was all about the horses.” – via Seventeen Magazine.
