Hunger Games Star Jennifer Lawrence Spills Squirrel Guts, Smashes PETA

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 2010's Winter's Bone, (for which she was nominated). The scene was not faked, she told Rolling Stone magazine: "I should say it wasn't real, for PETA," she said. "But screw PETA."



Prior to shooting Winter's Bone, (a charming little movie RS describes as "a gritty, gothic, murder story set in Ozark meth country"), 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 "the real deal, who's not trying to be anyone she's not. She's just this frickin' amazing gal from Kentucky who hit it big."


Later in the article (titled "America's Kick-Ass Sweetheart"), she tells RS writer Josh Eells that when she is done with her next movie she is "thinking about buying a house. And a big dog. And a shotgun."

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 she'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 layouts'¦
