Jennifer Lawrence is sassy and sexual in the new UK issue of Glamour magazine, a far cry from her rough, ready, but oh so vulnerable character Katniss Everdeen in her upcoming film “The Hunger Games.”
The 21-year-old April cover girl is about to have a lot in common with “Twilight” star Kristen Stewart, if studio predictions prove true and “The Hunger Games” becomes the next big teen blockbuster.
Advance ticket sales for the film’s release have outsold previous record holder “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse.” Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Liam Hemsworth and Lenny Kravitz will co-star.

In her Glamour shots, Lawrence looks like a Hollywood siren in a cleavage-revealing bodysuit. She’s also photographed with a bow, which Katniss wields effectively in the movie. Already nominated for an Oscar for 2010’s “Winter’s Bone,” she talks about her possible Stewart level of fame.
“I feel like I am in the eye of the hurricane right now. It’s daunting,” she says. “I feel like I got a ticket to another planet and I’m moving there and there’s no turning back, and I don’t know if I’m going to like that other planet or have friends there. It’s just scary.”
Lawrence was more than up to the task to play the role of Katniss and fight for her life in the Hunger Games. In one scene, she reveals, she gave actor Josh Hutcherson “a concussion” with a “death kick.”
The film will be screened at midnight on Mar. 22 and go into wide release the next day.
