According to Francis Lawrence, Jennifer Lawrence had a natural ability that ended up driving her colleagues crazy on the set of Hunger Games.

In the podcast episode of Josh Horowitz Happy Sad Confusedreleased November 14, the director spoke of the star’s enormous talent Hunger Games. She recalled how Jennifer Lawrence was able to instantly slip in and out of the character of Katniss Everdeen, managing to tackle even the most intense sequences of the films. As he explained, this ability of his ended up irritating some colleagues on the set:

He knows 100% how to turn emotions on and off. And I think, considering that I’ve done four movies with her with Red Sparrow being the last one, that the tougher scenes have become harder for her. But in that case I think he was 21 and he was able to switch from one situation to another like he had a switch. I think this drove other actors crazy, not this group, but others. Because to her it was so simple and that made some people freak out because she could joke and laugh and be really silly and then you’d say ‘action!’ and she became totally present in the scene. It’s a really cool thing to see, it’s really incredible.”

He did not want to reveal the names of the actors who were annoyed by the attitude of Jennifer Lawrence, but he assured that it was not about Philip Seymour Hoffman. He finally added:

He wasn’t Philip Seymour Hoffman, because he had enough experience. There have been a few actors in the Mockingjay films. I won’t say their names because I like them. Jen is such a fun person to spend time with and actually jokes with everyone. I think instead some people like to stay silent and think about what they are doing“.
