Pass the squirrel guts on PETA bread, please. The Hunger Games‘ mega-hottie and Oscar nominee Jennifer Lawrence is apparently as cool in real life as she is playing Katniss, a bowhunting super badass survivor girl in the blockbuster movie.
The 21-year-old beauty gutted a squirrel in the most talked about scene for her role in 2010â€™s Winterâ€™s Bone, (for which she was nominated). The scene was not faked, she told Rolling Stone magazine: â€śI should say it wasnâ€™t real, for PETA,â€ť she said. â€śBut screw PETA.â€ť
Prior to shooting Winter’s Bone, (a charming little movie RS describes as â€śa gritty, gothic, murder story set in Ozark meth countryâ€ť), Lawrence spent a month in Missouri with a rural family shooting rifles and chopping wood in preparation for the role.
Actor Woody Harrelson, (a real hippy earth-cookie and lovable nut job himself), describes co-star Lawrence in the interview, as â€śthe real deal, whoâ€™s not trying to be anyone sheâ€™s not. Sheâ€™s just this frickinâ€™ amazing gal from Kentucky who hit it big.â€ť
Later in the article (titled â€śAmericaâ€™s Kick-Ass Sweetheartâ€ť), she tells RS writer Josh Eells that when she is done with her next movie she is â€śthinking about buying a house. And a big dog. And a shotgun.â€ť
But no matter how many squirrels, fowl or big game she slays in her charmed film reel of a life, she’ll never kill as many animals as PETA.
For the record, if sheâ€™s serious about the shotgun, our editors would probably extend a warm and permanent invitation to Ms. Lawrence to join us in the duck blind anytime. You know Maxx Outdoors has those cool new two-man layoutsâ€¦
