With just 11 days to go before The Hunger Games arrives in theaters, the film's biggest stars — Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson — hit up the world premiere at the Nokia Theatre in L.A. Monday.
"I'm just pinching myself," Hemsworth, 22, told Us Weekly on the red carpet. "I'm truly fortunate to be a part of this whole process."
Echoed costar Jack Quaid, 19, who plays Marvel: "This is absolutely surreal! I never imagined in my wildest, wildest dreams that this would be like this as it is right now. It's crazy!"
Lawrence, 21, was the center of attention in a gold lame Prabal Gurung gown, while Hutcherson looked dapper in a Z Zegna suit.
Following the premiere, the cast celebrated during an after party at Nokia Theatre L.A. Live. "Jennifer immediately started eating sliders from Fatburger," a partygoer tells Us. "She was trying to hug people and take photos with fans in between, but it was obvious that she was starving and wanted to eat. I heard her say, 'I'm so happy fatburger is here!'"
While Lawrence satisfied her hunger, "little girls were lined up waiting to take photos and get autographs from Liam," the partygoer tells Us. "After an hour of non-stop hounding by kids," Hemsworth and girlfriend Miley Cyrus left just before midnight.
The Hunger Games is in theaters March 23.
