Katniss Everdeen may have Peeta Mellark, but Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence is head over heels for her boyfriend, British actor Nicholas Hoult.

“[My boyfriend] is honestly my best friend, and hopefully I’m his best friend too,” she said in the December issue of Elle magazine. “He’s my favorite person to be around and makes me laugh harder than anybody.”

The couple, both 22, met on the set of 2011’s X-Men: First Class and have since found their groove in each other’s twisted sense of humor.

“We can eat Cheetos and watch beach volleyball and we turn into two perverted Homer Simpsons, like, ‘Oh, she’s got a nice ass,'” Lawrence said, adding, “I never thought we’d have such different opinions on asses.”

The Oscar nominee — who’s currently filming in Atlanta — received quite the pay raise to star in Hunger Games: Catching Fire, the second installment to the successful franchise. Reportedly, Lawrence will make at least $10 million for her work in the sequel.

“Ten million dollars and I’m still living in my parents’ condo,” she quipped about her lifestyle. “I’ve always lived in a tiny rat-infested apartment in New York, or a little condo in L.A., or a normal house in Kentucky. I think it would be very bizarre to live in a big mansion by myself.”

Along with co-stars Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson, Lawrence will reprise her role of Katniss in Catching Fire, due out Nov. 22, 2013. According to the actress, she’s is well-aware of how important it is to present a healthy image of herself onscreen, especially given the growing Hunger Games fanbase.

“I don’t want little girls to be like, ‘Oh, I want to look like Katniss, so I’m going to skip dinner. That’s something I was really conscious of during training, when you’re trying to get your body to look exactly right,” she said. “I was trying to get my body to look fit and strong- not thin and underfed.”

Lawrence also flaunted her fit figure in the latest issue of Elle. See her sexy photo spread in the gallery above and in the video below.
