Jennifer Lawrence Goes Brunette
Marcel Thomas/FilmMagic

She’s really getting into character! After revealing her new Hunger Games look on the cover of Entertainment Weekly on Wednesday, actress Jennifer Lawrence stepped out in New York City Thursday sporting the brunette tresses signature to her character, Katniss Everdeen. The choice to cast Lawrence, formerly a blonde, drew skepticism when it was announced in March. But the willingness to change her hair color definitely shows some dedication to the role. “I have a huge responsibility to the fans of this incredible book, and I don’t take it lightly,” she told reporters in March. “I will give everything I have to these movies and to this role to make it worthy of Suzanne Collins’s masterpiece.” Lawrence, nominated for an Oscar for her work in 2010’s Winter’s Bone, can next be seen in X-Men: First Class, out June 3. Tells us: Do you prefer Lawrence as a blonde or brunette?

I love the HUNGER GAMES and Jennifer is perfect for the role. She looks great as either a brunette or blonde.

“But the willingness to change her hair color definitely shows some dedication to the role.”

… seriously?

She looks good blond or brunette.

She looks like a different person but just as beautiful!

She has a chubby face, I am so disappointed that she didnt try and lose weight for the role of Katniss. It’s going to look odd having her play a character that is supposed to starving her whole life….so disappointed in JL for not diving into the character the way Christian Bale or other great actors does does for his.

Selina-you are an ASS. shame on you for reinforcing the idea that an actress has to watch what she eats. She has a round face. it’s not chubby. She could probably do a million hours of cardio and not lose that. Plus she’s smiling you jackass.

now that her hair is brown i can def see Katniss

I think she makes a great Katniss, and I think having a fit Katniss (who eats what she kills in the forest with Gale) is better than having a skinny Katniss. Im excited for the movie, but wish that they would keep some of the casting a secret.

Selina you are a moron.

I think she looks great as a brunette and much more Katnis’ian. however, my first thought was that she looked too great to have starved her whole life. i dont think selina was commenting on her weight as a person…no one should starve by choice! however, KATNISS should have a lean and hungry look…as befitting the person she has been forced to become. Hopefully that can be created by make up…cheek hollows, arm definition etc. i am so looking forward to this movie i cannot hold it all in!

I agree with Selina. If you read the books you would know she is thing – they should have casted a younger, lanky teenager to play the role. Jennifer is too curvy and looks older than she is!
