Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence talks indies and big budget films

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire star Jennifer Lawrence opened up to Huffington Post‘s Mike Ryan about signing on for a big budget vs. independent film.

Lawrence has a nice answer to the question of what she prefers.

What do you prefer, the big budget movies like this and “X-Men,” or the smaller movies like “Silver Linings Playbook”?

I don’t know. It’s just two different things. You know, “X-Men,” I signed on when I was like 20 and it’s so exciting. I mean, I actually really do love the “X-Men” thing. And it’s interesting, I remember being — because I had only done indies before I signed on to “X-Men” — and I remember just being really curious. Like, “What does a huge giant movie look like?” And then I saw it and it was like, “Oh, my God.” It’s a completely different setup. But then now, fortunately, Mystique is a really amazing character. I love her journey and I love that we’re in her past — we are right at the beginning of who she becomes and I think it’s really interesting. And it’s also kind of cool playing someone who is not fully human.

You know, “The Hunger Games,” I signed on, too, for the same reason I do indies. I remember not wanting to sign on to it because I just thought it was too big and I had always imagined myself just staying with these small indies — because that is what I love. But I was like, all of the reasons I would sign on to any movie and get paid $100 on a tiny budget are here in this script and the story and the character. So, I’d actually be a hypocrite not to do it because of its size.
