Jennifer Lawrence admits she'd get drunk and stoned with co-stars after Hunger Games events
| Last updated
Jennifer Lawrence shot to fame as Katniss Everdeen in the Hunger Games series, and it turns out that the cast had quite a lot of fun with eachother off-set.
Lawrence stressed that she doesn't do it 'anymore', but told The New York Times that they'd return to their hotel and 'just drink whiskey and get stoned'.
She explained that the trio chose to wind down in this way because they were overwhelmed by the large crowds who came to the popular franchise's premiers.
"My mother-in-law's going to love this," the X-Men: First Class actor joked, before adding: "I don't do it anymore, I'm a mum!"
Lawrence's revelation comes shortly after the film announcement of a Hunger Games prequel, The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes, which is also based on a young adult novel of the same name by Hunger Games author Suzanne Collins.
"That makes me feel old as mold. I remember being 21 and thinking, 'My God, one day they'll redo and remake them. But I'll be so old by then! I'll be dead!'" Lawrence admitted in the interview.
The new film is set 64 years before the main events of the hit series starring Lawrence and will follow a young Coriolanus Snow.
The book that the film is based on was released back in 2020, and its IMDB synopsis reads: "Coriolanus Snow mentors and develops feelings for the female District 12 tribute during the 10th Hunger Games."
The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes will star Tom Blyth as Coriolanus Snow and Rachel Zegler as the defiant tribute Lucy Gray Baird.
It is expected to hit cinemas in November 2023, and it will undoubtedly be one to watch for come this time next year after the success of the original series.
Lawrence also revealed why she took a brief break from acting to Vanity Fair at the end of last year, explaining: "I was not pumping out the quality that I should have.
"I just think everybody had gotten sick of me. I'd gotten sick of me. It had just gotten to a point where I couldn't do anything right."
Thankfully, the actor is now back and seemingly on her A game, and her latest film, Causeway, a psychological drama, has just been released today (4 November).
