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.

    Amazing. I think I love this girl even more now if that’s possible. She is such a good actress and she admits to knowing the Potter terms and incantations? Hell yeah. I would have loved seeing Radcliffes reaction to her screaming in his face, ol.

  • verity

    Maybe it shouldn’t matter, but this makes me like her even more!

    Jennifer Lawrence’s interviews are always a fun read. She’s hilarious and has absolutely no filter. Everyone should click on the link and read the entire interview – it’s great.

  • Nerdfighter007

    Because we needed another reason to like her, right?

  • lookalivesteph

    She is so fantastic.

  • Gary65

    I don’t know why, but it always makes me feel good when I find prety people who are just as nerdy as I am. I feel like broadcasting it to the rest of the populace: “SEE!!! You don’t have to be a douche.”

    I love her interviews so much. She’s so real and energetic. She’s awesome.

  • Serah

    I love the part when she says that awards season is going to be better now because she can drink legally :D

  • ravenclaw1991

    This makes me want to marry her.

    • Megan

      But she has to pay off her Volkswagen first. (If you didn’t get that, read the article. It’s hilarious)

    Best Jennifer Lawrence picture was used for “Harry Potter FREAK” haha, those eyes

  • charlton

    She is such a nice person.

  • RabbitRabbit

    She talks about Harry Potter moments in other past interviews as well. I can clearly remember one story wherein she discussed the intricacies of the Ministry of Magic (while on first-class)

    • ProfessorP

      Yeah, that was on Jimmy Fallon when she was promoting The Hunger Games.

    Just when I thought I couldn’t love Jennifer Lawrence any more than I already do..

  • Hermione Granger

    Three or four times? Pfft. No but seriously, this is awesome.

  • Jason

    the star confesses her love for Twilight

    Uhh, saying the first book is “awesome” then pivoting to HP just means she was being nice…Most likely.

    I couldn’t even finish the the first “Hunger games” book, I found it a little boring, but after this, I think I’ll give it a shot…

  • belac889

    For I second I thought the title was: Jennifer Lawrence reveals she’s a Harry Poter freak, and she knows every INCARNATION…
    and all though was it was going to say the: of the Doctor.

    first off HOT!!!! that she knows every spell and incantation :(

  • HPFreak1

    DAMN! She’s AWESOME! She can actually act! I love her even more! I am a HUGE Harry Potter Freak. Harry Potter will always stay with me, all through my life, and the fact that one of my most favourite actresses loves it too, just makes it that much better!
