Hollywood star Jennifer Lawrence said she struggled to cope with the global fame that came her way after starring in the The Hunger Games movie franchise.
The 27-year-old actor became globally recognised for playing heroine Katniss Everdeen in the hit movie franchise but she said she “terrified” the day after the first film came out in 2012 when she suddenly found herself being followed by photographers and recognised on the street.
Jennifer said she rushed home and locked herself inside to try and process the change in her life.
Speaking to The Daily Telegraph newspaper, she said, “The day The Hunger Games came out was a bizarre one for me because I wasn’t famous 24 hours earlier and I got up to go about my day as usual and went to the grocery store.
“All of a sudden there were 25 paparazzi following me and there was a three-car pile-up. I was terrified. I went home and locked myself in the house. I couldn’t really process anything. Then my doorbell rang and my friends were there with wine and vodka and the things I needed. They came in and we all watched TV and had a normal day, so that was nice.”
