Hunger Games - Katniss Everdeen

Hi Huneybees,

I caught Hunger Games last week and till today I am still fascinated by the movie and the "Hunger Games Fever" is definitely catching on to everyone and I bet it will be a big success like Harry Potter.

One character who caught my eye would definitely be Katniss Everdeen played by Jennifer Lawrence. She's the protagonist and narrator of the Hunger Games trilogy. After her sister, Prim, was chosen to participate in the 74th Hunger Games, Katniss volunteered to take her place as the female tribute from District 12. She was good in archery and hunting, and her true-to-herself character made her the top favourite tribute amongst the others.

From Katniss, we learned about the determination and will to never give up. Although she is a pawn in the Capitol's sick game, she is never passive. In the games, Katniss continues to take control of her destiny. Instead of running from the cornucopia as she was told to do, she takes the risk of going in to get a backpack of supplies. And when the game makers change the rules in a way that means either she or Peeta must die, she comes up with a way to defy them. If we can learn anything from Katniss, it's that you should never defeat yourself and believe in yourself.

The more I watched the movie, the more I fell in love with Jennifer Lawrence. Her natural beauty shone and makeup that was kept to minimal on her, showed her flawless skin and youth. *I think I'm in love with her!*

At first, I thought she was the elder sister in the Chronicles of Narnia movie, played by Susan Pevensie. Not sure is it because of the archery reference,  but when I Googled, they do have a little resemblance. Agree?

Jennifer Lawrence looked so familiar, so who she is? And yes, after "asking" my trusty friend, Google, I found out where I've seen her before! She was Mystique in X-Men: First Class! No wonder the gorgeous face and body!

Here's her bio from Wikipedia:

Jennifer Shrader Lawrence (born August 15, 1990) is an American film and television actress. She has had lead roles in TBS's The Bill Engvall Show and in the independent films The Burning Plain and Winter's Bone, for which she received critical acclaim and a nomination for the Academy Award for Best Actress. At age 20, this made her the second youngest actress to ever be nominated for the award. She also played Mystique in X-Men: First Class

Lawrence was born and raised in Louisville, Kentucky, and has two older brothers. Her parents are Karen (née Koch), who runs a children's camp, and Gary Lawrence, who once owned a concrete construction firm, Lawrence & Associates. She acted in local theater and, by the age of 14, had decided to pursue an acting career, persuading her parents to take her to New York City to find a talent agent. Although she had no training or experience, she received high praise from the agency for which she auditioned. She graduated from high school two years early in order to begin a career in acting.

Jennifer Lawrence has a very versatile style and seriously, she seems to look good in everything, coloured or plain, hair up or hair down, light natural makeup or heavy shadow makeup always works for her. Here are some pictures of her I found on Google. Ain't she gorgeous?

 And yes guys, I found photos of her in Esquire magazine. Woots!

Anyway, there's this picture I found of her that had an uncanny reference to Jewel the singer, Kate Hudson and Renee Zellweger. Not just because there are blondes, but check out the photos below and you will know what I mean...
