The Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence has revealed some of the teasing she used to receive from her two older brothers growing up.

People reports that the 21-year-old actress told David Letterman in a recent interview that her brothers would often "fight each other over who could fight me".

She then went on to reveal one particular episode when her brothers locked her in the family basement with three dachshunds.

"When I was doing the gymnastics phase, they used to pin my feet back behind my head... and then they would get our dachshunds and put peanut butter all over my face. And then they'd shut the door, lock me in the basement with dachshunds," Lawrence said.

"And now - karma! - I go on talk shows and tell everybody. I win!"

The Academy Award-nominated actress plays Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games, a young woman forced to fight to the death on live television. She stars opposite Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth and Lenny Kravitz.

The film, which opened this weekend, has already broken estimated box office records in earnings.
