”[‘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.
