In the interview with EW, Hutcherson (The Kids are All Right) debunks rumors that Lawrence is “two feet taller” by stating, “Jennifer’s not two feet taller than me! If anything, maybe she’s a half inch taller.” Fans must really be worried. I would imagine movie magic will fix any height issues (not that it matters). And despite being rivals in the series, Hemsworth and Hutcherson apparently bonded hard while filming. Awws all around!
The Hunger Games is a young adult sci-fi story about a future dystopian Earth where children compete in fights to the death for sport and revenge. Katniss’ sister Prim is originally called to compete, but Katniss takes her place alongside Peeta from her district. The story evolves into apparent romance, battles, and ultimately war.
