Katniss comes clean! Jennifer Lawrence sported a flawless complexion and fresh face at the Great Gatsby premiere in New York City on Wednesday, May 1, ditching her usual smokey eyes and glam red carpet look for a pretty pink pout and minimal mascara. See more photos of the Gatsby premiere.
The Hunger Games star, 22, wore an elegant black sleeveless Viktor + Rolf frock with simple draping for the themed evening and kept her demeanor demure as she smiled for cameras. Lawrence has previously spoken out about her fear of red carpet events, claiming that she turns into a "chihuahua" when placed in front of the flashing lights.
"I'm afraid I'm going to go my whole life being scared like a chihuahua," she told UK's Fabulous magazine. "It's not my comfort zone. Making movies is where I belong. I shouldn't be heard just talking. … When you put me on a red carpet or on a stage, I turn into chihuahua Jennifer."
Earlier this week, the actress — who debuted a new short 'do at the 2013 GLAAD Media Awards on April 20 — was spotted grabbing dinner with former flame Nicholas Holt, 23, at L.A. eatery The Little Door.
The pair, who called it quits in late 2012 after dating for about two years, reportedly sat in the back room of the restaurant and were "happy and laughing" throughout their date.
"They looked flirtatious," an onlooker told Us Weekly. However, another source cautioned, the duo are also in the beginning stages of shooting their sequel X-Men: Days of Future Past together, so the happy chatter could have been work-related.
"They started talking again for the movie's sake," the source told Us. "If anything, she broke his heart and they are taking it slow."
