Going brunette did the trick

I never hated Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games. But I admit I was a little bit skeptical. And now that she's dyed her hair, she looks much more the role. Jennifer Lawrence is now saying that seems to be general public opinion and people are much more accepting of her as Katniss now.

After every single Hunger Games casting decision has come a lot of cheering. And also a lot of hatred. It makes sense. Fans have their favorite characters pictured perfectly in their mind. So, when an actor or actress that doesn't fit that picture is cast into a role, it can be incredibly frustrating for a fan. And the idea of Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen certainly frustrated a lot of people.

After it was announced that Jennifer Lawrence would star in The Hunger Games, she says she didn't even go online to see what people were saying. So, when MTV News asked Jennifer if she was aware many people hated her in the role, she replied, No, because the Internet to me is kind of like a black hole, and I never really go on it...



It wasn't until she got her hair dyed and everyone started liking her in the role that she realized they disliked her at first. Jennifer says, "I wasn't aware that everybody was so upset until I after I got my hair dyed, and people were like, 'Oh my gosh, blond hair can turn brown. Wow. It's a miracle.' So now is the only time that I'm being told that people hated me at first."

Jennifer should understand that fans had a hard time picturing her as Katniss at first. I still don't think she's perfect for the role as I think her personality is a bit harsh and Katniss seems so calm and kind. But Lawrence is a fabulous actress, so I'm sure she can pull off a role different from her own personality.

Now that Jennifer Lawrence has dyed her hair brown, do you like her in the role of Katniss Everdeen? Or is there someone else you'd rather see in The Hunger Games?

"Katniss seems so calm and kind" Did you actually read the book?

I don't think this author read the book at all. I would not describe Katniss as "calm and kind". Katniss is harsh and selfish, but with a good heart and strong moral center. She is a survivor.
