Lenny Kravtiz admits he wanted to appear in 'The Hunger Games' because he wanted to be ''part of an ensemble''.
Lenny Kravitz signed up to 'The Hunger Games' because he likes ''being part of an ensemble''.
The singer-and-actor plays the role of stylist Cinna in the big-screen adaptation of the Suzanne Collins novel series - directed by Gary Ross - and he admits he wanted to appear in it because although he loves being a solo performer, he occasionally relishes group work.
He said: ''In the recordings it's me. I do what I want. When I'm on stage I can stop and say what I want. It's kind of like stand-up comedy; one guy and a mic. But I like being in an orchestra. I like being part of an ensemble. That was always my desire but I ended up being a solo artist.''
Now, the 47-year-old rocker - who has actress daughter Zoe Kravitz - admits he is feeling like he has had a rebirth and is keen to keep learning.
He told the Scotsman newspaper: ''Now I'm hungry. I feel like I'm just getting started, that the first 22 years was a great education and the next 22 years is going to be like, 'OK not it's time to develop in whatever I do.' ''
