Jennifer Lawrence Tells Comic-Con of Catching Fire's Weddings, Snot and Kissing

Jennifer Lawrence was greeted by wild screams as she and cast mates took to the Comic-Con stage to tell fans about their new movie; the sequel to 2012's The Hunger Games that saw her character Katniss Everdeen compete in and jointly win a televised battle top the death in post-apocalyptic nation, 'Panem.' Speaking about her character Everdeen's evolution from the first film, Lawrence explained, "She's struggling with post-traumatic stress disorder after the games while living in Victor's Village, where she never wants for food, and feels useless. She's adapting to a new life."

Despite the dark tone of Suzanne Collins' novels and adapted movies, the mood was jovial amongst The Hunger Games Comic-Con panel, as the stars bantered with each other and exchanged funny stories from filming. "The kissing scenes are going to be really hot, if you're into snot," laughed Lawrence, as she described how a resuscitation scene between her and co-star Josh Hutcherson got sticky: "There was all this snot coming out of my nose and when I had to kiss Josh it went in his mouth and then I coughed and I wobbled it," as reported by The Guardian.

In the next instalment, the defiant Katniss keeps her strong morals despite her sudden celebrity status. However, her influential power over the repressed nation is noticed by the malign President Snow, played by Donald Sutherland, who wants Katniss' blood when he realises her power as conduit for rebellion and plots the young victor's downfall.

The Oscar-winning actress showed that fame has barely changed her as she served up her distinctive awkward mannerisms and self-deprecating humour to the joy of loving fans. As she described the second movie's wedding scene, she also referenced the heart-stopping moment when the 22 year-old actress tripped over her long gown and fell on her way to receiving her Academy Award: "Wearing the wedding dress was one of the hardest things I've done in my life."I'm not good at walking, as you know."
