    Just because The Hunger Games hasn’t been released yet doesn’t mean the frenzy hasn’t already started!

    Lead actress Jennifer Lawrence snagged the cover of Glamour Magazine’s April issue – not to mention she’s also on the mag’s UK version as well.

    As the 21-year-old poses in numerous ensembles like Lanvin, Roberto Cavalli and Lucky Brand, the actress shares with us some of her thoughts on Hollywood and her new film.

    Check out some excerpts:

    Her first thoughts about The Hunger Games being turned into a movie…

    “When I heard they were making the movie, I was like, ‘oh, that’s nice—they’re going to ruin another great book.’ But then I met Gary [Ross, the director], and he was unbelievable.

    On taking on the role of Katniss in The Hunger Games

    “I gave myself three days. I knew from reading the books that I loved The Hunger Games. I just didn’t know if it was worth changing my life for. I’m at a peaceful place right now. The people who used to ignore me at parties, now they’re nice to me and kissing my ass. But nobody’s staked outside my house. I wanted to make sure that when I said yes, I wouldn’t regret it. And I don’t regret it. I would have said no because I was scared, and then I would have been that bitter actress telling my grandkids, ‘I’m the one that turned it down.’”

    On getting in shape and dieting…

    “I hate saying, ‘I like exercising.’ I want to punch people who say that in the face. But it’s nice being in shape for a movie, because they basically do it all for you. It’s like, ‘Here’s your trainer. This is what you can eat.’” “I don’t diet. I do exercise! But I don’t diet. You can’t work when you’re hungry, you know?”

    On adjusting to her life as a famous actress…

    “Just recently I started letting myself eat things from the minibar. When we were kids, we would never open the minibar. A $6 Snickers bar? But the other day I was in a hotel and I was staring at a Snickers bar, and I finally just ate it. Then it was like something in me snapped. I opened all these drinks. I thought: I can do it now. Now I’m all grown-up. I can eat things from the minibar.”

    Her take on life in the public eye…

    “In some ways, it’s a hard life, but it’s a great professional life. I’m doing what I love, and then I get months and months of rest. I have a lot of money for a 21-year-old. I can’t stand it when actors complain.”
