Jennifer Lawrence graces the cover of People magazine as Katniss, and admits to the magazine that landing the Hunger Games part hasn’t “sunk in.” 

The 21-year-old Oscar nominee opened up about bonding with her cute costars Josh Hutcherson, 19, and Liam Hemsworth, 22, recalling a story to People

“One day we went down to a creek to catch a crawdad, ’cause Liam didn’t know what it was. I saw one and was like, ‘Catch it!’ Josh did and it got stuck to his hand. It was a leech! Then we went to Walmart and bought slingshots.”

She added of the dynamic on set, “It was like some weird summer camp.” She said that there were times her other costar Lenny Kravitz would play music back at the hotel.
