Jennifer Lawrence has impressed everyone with her portrayal of a brave young woman, Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games franchise. Her enigmatic on-screen presence is further explored in a variety of genres, displaying the potential she holds as an actor. It would not be an exaggeration to state that she is one of the best actresses of her generation who has a good grasp of her art.

The popular franchise played a key role in giving a major push to several actors’ careers including Josh Hutcherson who played Peeta Mellark in the franchise. Given that the actors’ on-screen chemistry was widely applauded by fans, their off-screen moments are quite memorable as well.

While both the stars have an insane on-screen chemistry which no one can deny, their off-screen moments are just as hilarious. Jennifer Lawrence is no stranger to success anymore as she made sure to bring in many achievements in her 20s whether it be The Hunger Games series or making a huge impact through her impeccable acting in other projects. 

Given that she has captivated everyone’s hearts with the intensity she served in that role, teaching her acting tricks would rather look a bit plain to her. 


It is what her The Hunger Games co-star, Josh Hutcherson did when the 30-year-old actor tried to improvise her acting by giving her suggestions. She shared as per IMDB

“Whenever Josh is like ‘I don’t think you should do it like that’. And then I’m like ‘Oh, really? Do you wanna tell that to my Oscar?'”

She is famously known for bagging the Academy Award for Best Actress for her portrayal of a troubled young widow in the 2012 film, Silver Linings Playbook. That achievement made her the second youngest Oscar winner in that category. Hence, it was a clear sign for her co-star to back off since she already understood what she was into. The duo has shared many moments with each other together, including an awkward kissing scene.

In an interview on Live! with Kelly and Michael, Hutcherson recalled his experience of kissing Lawrence in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. While they didn’t have any difficulty filming the sequence, the Detention producer mentioned that it was “very slobbery” due to the Mother! actress. He recalled, 

“It was very slobbery…It was right after Peeta had been knocked down, and it wasn’t looking too good for him.”

As the scene demanded a strong connection Lawrence had to get into an emotional mode which messed up their kissing experience a bit. 

 “So, she was upset, she was crying, and when she was crying, there was fluid here [points to an area on his face]…and then when we kissed, it was just fluid.”

However, he further added that it was all good since they were good friends. Their friendship was what contributed to making their on-screen chemistry much better. 


The Hunger Games is available for streaming on Hulu.
