One of the first pieces of advice I was ever given, on my first job was, “You should always buy something to treat yourself to say ‘Well done for getting the job!’” However I’ve not followed on that through yet…I’ve always wanted a tattoo, something to mark my experience.
Josh Hutcherson and I are like Jennifer Lawrence’s younger brothers, we loved picking on her. When she came back to film after winning her Oscar, we got her a Tiffany jewellery box with a charm inside it to say congrats - but put ten crickets in with it! She didn’t open it until she was in her trailer. We all waited outside for the scream.
“It sounds so silly but the thing that I’m not looking forward to is the end of The Hunger Games. We had such fun on the first one that I don’t want the filming to finish…I know that I’m going to be doing it for a while, and then obviously there’s the next film coming up at the end of next year, but I have no idea as to where my career is headed in five years time. I’m just excited to find out what might happen. Hopefully, I won’t be sitting in my flat in London, crying myself to sleep.”

One day we were fighting some imaginary monkeys in this lodge in the middle of Hawaii, when suddenly Jennifer let out this god almighty scream. She thought something had hit her in the bum. As it turns out, my trident whipped her in the ass.
I keep in touch with what’s real.
