Lawrence appears on the cover of the February 2013 issue of Vanity Fair magazine. She talks about playing Katniss, walking the red carpet, auditioning for her first role.
I read the script, and it was the first time I had that feeling like I understand this. This is the first time I’ve ever understood anything. I was 14. And my brothers were star athletes. And one of them was a straight-A student. I always felt like I sucked at everything, that I could never find the thing that I liked. I auditioned and I probably sucked, but I had decided 100 percent that this is what I wanted to do.
