Willow Shields on Jennifer Lawrence: She Would Win the Real Hunger Games!

Sisterly love! As The Hunger Games prepares to release its third installment — Mockingjay – Part 1 — star Willow Shields, who plays Katniss’ younger sister Prim, dished secrets from the set to Us Weekly in our 1-minute interview. 

The 14-year-old actress has developed a close bond with her on-screen sister, played by Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence, and thinks her big sis, 24, would have a shot in the actual Hunger Games (if there were such a thing!). 

“I honestly think Jen would win, but she’s also really funny so she would probably goof off and probably end up doing something really stupid,” Shields said of the known jokester Lawrence.

And Lawrence isn’t the only Hunger Games star she looks up to. When asked if she was Team Gale (Liam Hemsworth) or Team Peeta (Josh Hutcherson), Shields blushed and quickly replied, “They’re like brothers to me! They’re both very handsome — don’t get me wrong, but I can’t. Nope.”
