‘Jennifer Lawrence is Katniss Everdeen, I guess,’ she said. ‘Is that weird?’ 

Following the announcement of a prelude to the original film series, titled The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes, Lawrence admits the reboot makes her ‘feel old as mold.’

‘I remember being 21 and thinking, ‘My God, one day they’ll redo and remake them. But I’ll be so old by then! I’ll be dead!’ she joked.

Now that she’s no longer currently attached to an upcoming teen dystopian films, the mom-of-one mused that she’s ‘not scared of 13-year-olds anymore.’

‘They have no idea who I am,’ the actress said. ‘I can tell things are different by my interactions in the real world, just by the way that I can move about life.’ 

She added: ‘There’s an occasional article about me walking out in Ugg boots, but other than that, the interest has lessened, God bless it.’

Last month, Lawrence admitted to feeling like a ‘commodity’ and ‘lost a sense of control’ after achieving global superstardom through The Hunger Games. 

‘When I reflect now, I can’t think of those following years, [because there was] just a loss of control,’ the 32-year-old actress recalled, according to Variety. 

The performer explained: ‘Between The Hunger Games coming out and winning the Oscar [for 2012’s Silver Lining Playbook], I became such a commodity that I felt like every decision was a big, big group decision.’

Jennifer recently took a years-long hiatus from feature films before making her comeback last year in the apocalypse comedy Don’t Look Up.

‘It’s a Sicilian mafia term for a hit on a major celebrity,’ she dished. ‘It just made sense. I think there was a part of me that wanted to execute that part of me.’

Although she became a critical darling for the 2010 drama Winter’s Bone, she shot to the global international fame she enjoys today by way of The Hunger Games.

She then became a mainstay of major franchise tentpoles, acting in not just the Hunger Games film series but also the X-Men movies.

When the Me Too movement took off early in her hiatus, one of Harvey Weinstein’s accusers claimed that the producer told her: ‘I slept with Jennifer Lawrence and look where she is; she has just won an Oscar.’

Jennifer staunchly denied that she ever had sex with Harvey, issuing a statement at the time saying: ‘My heart breaks for all the women who were victimized by Harvey Weinstein…. I have never had anything but a professional relationship with him.’

She went on: ‘This is yet another example of the predatory tactics and lies that he engaged in to lure countless women.’
