Francis Lawrence, Director of Catching Fire has recently sat down with NY mag for an interview which he dishes on Jennifer Lawrence during the film.

Does Jennifer Lawrence still do the karate-running? She hated how she looked running before.

She said she always made this stupid face when she ran, and I had to specifically watch out to make sure she didn’t. So I was always checking. I would tell her, “You made the stupid face!”

The first film skimped a little on showing us the strategy behind the Katniss-Peeta love story.

I felt the same. I felt the love story in general was, um, a bit buried in the first one. I wanted to bring the love story to the surface. And when I say love story, I mean the triangle.

It’s fine, actors can step on boxes.

[Laughs.] He and Jen get much closer in height when she’s in flats, which is a good thing. You throw her in some heels, and it’s all over
