One of the more implausible aspects of The Hunger Games, in Vulture's opinion, is the notion that Jennifer Lawrence would ever have any trouble winning over a large group of people. Did you see that Letterman appearance? The woman is incredibly charming. And she also, as Josh Eells notes in this month's Rolling Stone, excels at first impressions. Consider her first chat with co-star Josh Hutcherson: "The conversation started with her saying, 'Think about a catheter going in — ouch!' and then turns into a 45-minute rant about zombies and the apocalypse." Or her opening moves on Zoe Kravitz: "I go over to her apartment, and she opens the door in a towel. She's like, 'Come in, sorry, you're early, I was about to shower.' And she drops her towel and gets in the shower, and starts shaving her legs, totally naked." And then there is the first sentence she uttered to Woody Harrelson: "On my bus I have a yoga swing. Jennifer comes on, and she goes, 'Hi, Woody, I'm J— is that a sex swing?" One, that is a totally reasonable trailer-related question. And two, does anyone know if Jennifer Lawrence is accepting friend applications?
