The Hunger Games lead actress Jennifer Lawrence has been making the press rounds recently to promote her new film Silver Linings Playbook and to talk Oscar odds.
In a new interview with The Daily Beast, the star confesses her love for Twilight and Harry Potter.
The answer was prompted after the interviewer asked if she was a Twihard. She described the first book by Stephenie Meyer as “awesome,” but then pivoted to her love for Potter. “I’m more of a Harry Potter freak,” she said. “I read all the books three or four times. I know every spell or incantation. I end up speaking sometimes in Harry Potter terms.”
Lawrence then revealed she once met lead star Dan Radcliffe and freaked out in his presence. “Yeah, I screamed in his face,” she admitted. “We were both doing Letterman. I grabbed him by the shoulder. Of course, I’m in 6-inch heels. That makes me 6-foot-4. I’m towering over him, saying, ‘I love Harry Potter!’ His security people were nodding to each other—should we go?”
Elsewhere in the interview Lawrence talks about her relationship with Nicholas Hoult, who stars in the upcoming zombie film Warm Bodies. Unlike most celebrities, Lawrence is open about discussing her life with her partner. “It’s really funny. I’ve never had anything like it, where I was like, ‘Yeah, this is awesome. Let’s do this all the time.’ We were such good friends. We liked hanging out, hanging out turned to dating. There was never that awkward period. We just both liked being around each other so much.”
The Katniss actress is currently filming The Hunger Games: Catching Fire in Atlanta. Filming will move to Hawaii later this year before wrapping up. It opens in theaters November 2013.
