Jennifer Lawrence Talks Catching Fire & Labeling Herself 'Obese' For Hollywood

Jennifer Lawrence is headed back to the arena in “Catching Fire,” and she’s excited about working alongside her new co-stars in the second installment of the “The Hunger Games” franchise.

”[‘Catching Fire’] is going really well,” the actress told Access Hollywood at a “Silver Linings Playbook” screening in Los Angeles on Monday.

“We’ve got a new cast and they’re wonderful,” she continued. “Jeffrey Wright, Jenna Malone, Amanda Plummer — and it’s going really well.”

The 22-year-old actress also spoke out about her recent comments in ELLE magazine, where she dubbed herself “obese” by Hollywood standards and said, “I’m considered a fat actress.”

“Sarcasm doesn’t really translate in print, does it?” the actress said with a laugh when asked about her comment.

“The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” is currently in production and slated to hit the big screen on November 22, 2013.
