Jennifer Lawrence on indie films: "I woke up in two franchises"

By
Jennifer Lawrence has said that she is hoping to continue working in independent movies despite franchise roles in The Hunger Games and X-Men.

The 21-year-old, who plays Katniss Everdeen in tomorrow's blockbuster release The Hunger Games, told Digital Spy that she is more concerned with the calibre of directors and scripts that cross her path than the size of a film's budget.



"Indies were always my main source of work and I feel like all of a sudden I've woke up and I'm in two franchises that I love and that I'm proud of." said Lawrence, who was Academy Award-nominated for her role in 2010's Winter's Bone.

Jennifer Lawrence arrives at the premiere of The Hunger Games at the O2 in London.
"That's not a wake-up of regret, just a 'wow, I never expected to see that'. But I'm still doing work that I love and I always think it's mostly about the story and the character and working with good directors; it doesn't really matter, the size of it."

"When I was doing indies, everybody wanted to know why I wouldn't do studios and it was just because it meant the story and the script and not the size of the movie. Then I just found a script and story and director I loved and it just happened to be huge."

Lawrence recently completed work on The Silver Linings Playbook for The Weinstein Company and will be appearing in independent horror The House at the End of the Street later in the year.
