Kristen Stewart “Can’t Wait to See” The Hunger Games

 Jon Furniss/

Kristen Stewart became a household name when Twilight hit theaters in 2008, so she knows what's in store for The Hunger Games' leading trio Jennifer Lawrence 21, Liam Hemsworth, 22, and Josh Hutcherson, 19.

"It gets very crazy, and instantly the question is, 'Are you going to be able to handle it? Is this something that you want?' You look at those actors and you can tell why they're doing what they're doing," Stewart, 21, said on Today Monday.

"It's so obvious that no one signed on to that project to do 'the next big thing,' and I think that's the coolest way to see something get big."

Snow White and the Huntsman's Stewart added: "I can't wait to see the movie!"


Since signing on for the role of heroine Katniss Everdeen, Lawrence has often been compared to Stewart. Despite being pitted against one another in the media, Lawrence maintains a sense of humor about their similar career trajectories.

"I wrote her an email because there was this huge article about a Twilight and Hunger Games feud," Lawrence recently told Access Hollywood. "And we've never met before and never spoken. There were all these fake quotes from me that were actually hilarious. I just shot her an email, and was like, 'Hey, can't wait to see more as this feud unfolds!'"

To Lawrence's surprise, Stewart wrote back. "She was like, 'It's fine. Welcome to [our] world where everything you say gets turned into [something it's not],'" Lawrence said. "So, she understood."

The Hunger Games is in theaters March 23.
