Jennifer Lawrence Reveals She Used to ‘Get High’ With ‘Hunger Games’ Co-Stars

Jennifer Lawrence has shared the special ritual she used to engage in with her “Hunger Games” co-stars Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson to deal with intense premieres, press events and swarms of paparazzi.

In a new interview with The New York Timesthe “Causeway” actor candidly described how the trio used to let off steam by pouring booze and provoking weed together.

“The boys and I would always go back to our hotel and just drink whiskey and get stoned,” Lawrence told the outlet.

The Oscar-winning actress — who recently welcomed a baby boy with hubby Cooke Maroney — jokingly added, “My mother-in-law is going to love this. I don’t do it anymore, I’m a mom!

The “Hunger Games” films, based on the young adult novels by Suzanne Collins, follow teenagers from each of Panem’s twelve neighborhoods who are randomly chosen to fight to the death.

Fans of the franchise will recall Lawrence’s fearless character, Katniss Everdeen, as District 12’s tribute in games 74 and 75.

Hemsworth (Gale Hawthorne) and Hutcherson (Peeta Mellark) starred as Everdeen’s on-screen love interests. The films, released every year from 2012 to 2015, set box office records.

Noting that she will always be associated with her “Hunger Games” persona, Lawrence joked, “Jennifer Lawrence is Katniss Everdeen, I guess. Is it weird?”

The actress also revealed that she felt “old as mold” hearing about the upcoming ‘Hunger Games’ prequel film, ‘The Ballad of Songbirds and Serpents’.

“I remember being 21 and thinking, ‘God, one day they’re going to do them over and over again. But I’ll be so old by then! I’ll be dead!’ “Lawrence told The Times.

“The Ballad of Songbirds and Serpents” will premiere in theaters on November 17, 2023.

In the upcoming film, based on Collins’ 2020 novel of the same name, District 12’s female tribute Lucy Gray Baird faces off in a televised, bloody battle royale against other kids.

The dystopian action-adventure is set to star Rachel Zegler (“West Side Story”) as Lucy Gray Baird, Tom Blyth (“Billy the Kid”) as young Coriolanus Snow and Viola Davis (“The Woman King”), Peter Dinklage (“Game of Thrones”), Jason Schwartzman (“Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World”) and Hunter Schafer (“Euphoria”).
