Jennifer Lawrence: ‘Hunger Games’ is NOT ‘Twilight’!

With the Twilight Saga coming to an end soon and all the hype surrounding Suzanne Collins’ book series turned movies, one can easily compare the two, calling the latter “the next Twilight.” We can see where one can get that idea, with the public already comparing Hunger Games to the worldwide phenomenon that is Twilight. But Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence – who plays Katniss Everdeen – wants to make it clear: “Hunger Games is NOT Twilight.”

In a recent interview with Vanity Fair, when asked about the comparisons between the two, the actress tells the mag:

“Hunger Games is not Twilight, and while I hear the comparisons, it’s really premature to say that it will be the same phenomenon. I’m so proud of the work we did on the film—Gary and the entire cast and crew were amazing, and I can’t wait for it to be brought to life because I think it’s an important story. If it does become a crazy phenomenon, I’ll soak up my freedom now!”

Sounds good Jennifer – you might need to do just that!

Do you think Hunger Games will be just as big a phenomenon as Twilight, or is Twilight too much of a crazed phenomenon to beat? Which do you prefer: Hunger Games or Twilight?
