San Diego Comic Con has been over for quite a while, but we’re still getting great interview bits here and there. Spinoff had a chance to talk to the cast and crew about the end of The Hunger Games, and we’ve included some of it below!
Jen, what are you going to miss about Josh, and Josh, what are you going to miss about Jennifer?
Lawrence: Well, we’re best friends.
Hutcherson: You got it.
Lawrence: So we still see each other all the time. So I don’t miss seeing them because we all still hang out. But I do miss acting with them because this really horrible thing happens where we can’t make eye contact [laughs] without laughing. And I don’t have that challenge in any other movie, with any other actors that I work with. Normally, I can make eye contact with actors and finish scenes. And that is a challenge that I will miss.
Hutcherson: Jen definitely creates a great vibe on the sets.
Hutcherson: So I think that’s going to be missed on future projects. I think because she just acts so crazy and genuine, she makes other people around her feel free to be themselves. And that’s something that is kind of rare to find, especially from an actress on a set. [To Lawrence] Your hands still smell weird.
Lawrence: They don’t smell – oh, it was those ranch chips.
Hutcherson: So I’ll miss that, for sure.
Could you talk about what it was like to say goodbye?
Hemsworth: I think it was for all of us. It was extremely emotional to have this project come to an end. And I think we’re all really lucky to have made such good friends and shared such a special experience together. I mean, it was a crazy world to be thrown into an amazing project to be a part of and to really grow up together doing. We’re all five or six years ago.
Lawrence: I don’t know. I thought it was 10.
Hemsworth: I think about the person I was then, and the person I am right now. All of us, we’ve grown up so much and changed so much. This will always be…
Lawrence: Now, I don’t go anywhere without a jet.
Hemsworth: – special moment in my life.
This is the last time “Hunger Games” comes to Comic Con. How do you feel about that?
Willow Shields: Do you want to just make us cry up here? This is the final – it’s like, oh, no.
Hemsworth: It’s the nail in the coffin.
Lawrence: Oh, my God.
Hutcherson: It’s a little dark. I mean, for me, it’s been amazing, and coming to Comic Con is, like, the central hub for fandom, and so to kind of step into this world and get to visit the big Hall H panel, it’s so cool. And to bring these movies that people are so passionate about to them, and to have the whole cast here and to get to meet and have some kind of interaction with them, it’s really rewarding for us. For me, personally, I don’t know about these guys, but, no, it’s really great. And it’s sad to know that we’re not coming back here for this, that’s for sure.
Hemsworth: Comic Con is always fun. Good energy.
