Forget the new 'do for a minute. Sit down with Jennifer Lawrence and you can't help but to stare into her eyes. That's because she's about to cry. Screen tough girl Katniss in The Hunger Games franchise shares a quick story that chokes her up on the eve of Catching Fire opening Nov. 22. "I remember being on my very first movie and thinking that as an actor my job wasn't that important to the world. I just loved doing it. Then one day on Catching Fire, I met an extra who was covered in real life scars. She was burned. This girl told me that she was too self-conscious to go to school. Then she read Hunger Games and went to school, calling herself, 'The Girl Who Caught on Fire.' She was suddenly proud of her scars."
A tear slips out and Lawrence runs a hand through her short blonde hair. In person, she's almost six feet and wears a dusky gold shirt, beige pants and a big black sweater. "I still can't tell the story," she sniffs. "But it puts it all into perspective."
