Jennifer Lawrence’s career is very varied, with movies that won Oscars and movies that were huge hits. Lawrence may be best known to a certain group of people for playing Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games series, but she reportedly came very close to joining another big YA movie. Lawrence recently said on the show The Rewatchables that she tried out for the first Twilight movie but was “immediately” turned down. At this point, we don’t know if Lawrence auditioned for the main character Bella Swan or for another female character in the series.
Jennifer Lawrence On ‘Twilight’ Audition
“I auditioned for ‘Twilight,'” Lawrence confirmed. “They turned me down immediately. I didn’t even get a callback. But my life would’ve been totally different. I got ‘Hunger Games’ I think, like, a year later. It was probably after ‘Winter’s Bone.'”
Lawrence said in another part of the interview that she almost turned down The Hunger Games just because of how many Twilight fans there were.
“I was still in a franchise, so I was still trying to counteract the franchise-ness,” Lawrence said. “I’d still be doing that if I was in ‘Twilight.’ But I almost didn’t do ‘Hunger Games’ because ‘Twilight’ had come out and that fandom had happened.”
“When I was trying to talk to people about making this decision after [‘Hunger Games’] got offered to me, it was hard to explain to people… this level of fame,” Lawrence said. “I assumed it was going to be the ‘Twilight’ level of fame and that was never something I had in mind. I never wanted to be the most famous person on the planet. That’s a very different life than I pictured for me.”
In a recent interview with Variety, Lawrence said that she would “totally” play Katniss Everdeen again, even though the events of Suzanne Collins’s original books have already been shown on film.
