on landing the lead in the hunger games:
"The cool thing about Katniss is that every fan has such a personal relationship with her, and they understand and know her in a singular way."
"She's incredibly powerful, brave, and tough—and yet she has a tenderness and complexity."
on being a tomboy at heart:
"I was a cheerleader for six years, but I also have this totally competitive side. I'll wrestle anyone at any time."
