After landing the part of Katniss Everdeen in the Hunger Games film series then going on to win a Best Actress Oscar for Silver Linings Playbook, Jennifer Lawrence is getting all of the best scripts in Hollywood sent her way.
But while she gets first look at the top film role material, the ever humble actress still knows that there are other actresses who could play a part better than she could.
During a series of internet chats this week to promote Hunger Games: Catching Fire, the 23-year old confessed : “just recently, I read a script that had me sobbing. I’ve never been so moved by a story, and I thought it was so beautiful and amazing, and I just couldn’t wait for this script to get made so that the world could see it … but I just wasn’t her, I just wasn’t the character.”
So not only will another lucky actress have a chance at that role now, Jennifer even makes suggestions to film makers as to who she thinks would be better for the role than herself!
J-Law added “And I also had an experience once where I read the script, and I loved it, but I couldn’t stop picturing Amanda Seyfried. So I e-mailed the people [behind the movie] and said, ‘You gotta hire Amanda Seyfried for this!”
