Entertainment Weekly asked the Hunger Games: Catching Fire stars what their favorite young adult novels were and the results were somewhat surprising. Jennifer Lawrence revealed herself to be a traitor to her own book series, The Hunger Games, saying, “Harry Potter. I was so crazy about Harry Potter I read it twice. All of them twice. I didn’t have a favorite, I thought they were all amazing.” Sacrilege! Just kidding, it’s not like she said Twilight.
Here’s what some of the other cast members had to say. Check out the rest here.
Josh Hutcherson (Peeta): ”I kind of, unfortunately, stuck to what the school made me read. I didn’t get to step out of that zone. I had the opportunity but I just didn’t take advantage of it. But my favorite book growing up was probably Catcher in the Rye. I loved that; it’s a great book.”
Sam Claflin (Finnick): “Mate, I don’t read. That’s why I got into acting, so I wouldn’t have to read books. I basically played a lot of football growing up — or soccer, whatever you want to call it. Basically, any class at high school that I didn’t have to read or write [in], I got involved. So no, absolutely not, no favorite book or book series…My wife will tell you that I do not read. I literally read Lord of the Flies about a year ago, I’m not kidding. I think this is the third project that I’ve been involved that’s based on a book and, until this franchise, I hadn’t read a single one. But then I did read all three of these in five days.”
Willow Shields (Prim): “I like any book by John Green. He’s my favorite author ever. He’s amazing. I love him. But right now, I’m reading the last Divergent book [by Veronica Roth], which is really exciting. I’m kind of nervous. I love those books, too.”
Sam Claflin doesn’t read? People who don’t read are like . . . what do you mean you don’t read? You mean you don’t like opening your mind and going on cool adventures and falling in love with characters and exploring the infinite realms of the human imagination? Is that what you are saying to me, sir?!
